New virus expected on April Fools Day

The third variant of the Conficker virus is set to activate in infected machines on April 1st.

According to Computer World, this latest virus is the third in a series of modules that behaves more like a Trojan than a self-propagating Worm. It is an aggressive program that provides protection to infected machines from anti-virus and security software.

The worm generates masses of URLs to cover the tracks of the virus’ controller and to allow the controller to issue commands to infected machines.
