The Conficker virus (aka Downup virus,chaussure converse all star,sac longchamp pas cher 49842, Downandup virus,converse all star, Conflicker virus,longchamp pliage, and Kido virus) is a worm,converse pas cher. A worm is a type of virus that spreads itself through networks,sac longchamp pas cher. Basically someone starts it up and it starts looking around a network that it is connected to – including the Internet – to find computers that are vulnerable to infection,longchamp pas cher.

What computers are vulnerable to the Conficker virus,longchamp pas cher? Any computer that is or has been connected to a network (including the Internet) and running the following version of Windows:

1,chaussures converse. Windows 2000 (very vulnerable)

2,sac longchamp. Windows XP (very vulnerable)

3,longchamp pas cher. Windows Server 2003 (very vulnerable)

4,sac longchamp pliage 83346 Windows Vista (less vulnerable)

5,longchamp pas cher. Windows Server 2008 (less vulnerable)

Microsoft put out a patch to fix the vulnerability: Microsoft Security Bulletin MS08-067 – Critical,converse pas cher. Computers that have had the patch applied,converse pas cher, providing that the Conficker virus was not already on it,sac longchamp pas cher, are not vulnerable to attack via a network.

What is the „vulnerability“,sac longchamp? How can the Conficker virus gain access to a computer over a network,sac longchamp? All computers that are able to share information over a network have programs running on as part of the operating system that „listen“ for communications from the network,prix converse. For instance,converse all star, if a co-worker on another computer wants to access a folder on your computer they (through their computer) send a message to your computer asking to access the folder,sac longchamp pas cher. The appropriate operating system component on your computer handles the request and gives access or denies access to the file based on whether you shared the file and gave the requestor permission to see it,What Is The Conficker Virus ,chaussure converse all star. The important thing to understand is that a program on the requesting computer makes contact with a program on the listening computer and gets the listening program to do something for it,sac longchamp.

If the listening program mentioned above has a bug in it that can enable the requesting program to make it do unsavory things – like give the requesting program access to install itself on the receiving computer – then that would be a „vulnerability“,longchamp soldes. In the case of the Conficker virus that is basically what was discovered – the program that lets you share folders and printers and other things on a Windows computer,converse all star,converse all star 87978, called the Windows Server service,sacs a main longchamp, had a bug in it that would allow another program to get it to do things that would then allow a program to be installed over the network without anyone knowing about it.

What would protect me from the Conficker virus or similar viruses,sac longchamp pas cher? If your network and computer are being protected by a properly configured firewall then you were really never at risk,converse all star. If you applied the patch Microsoft put out for this vulnerability by running Windows updates then your Windows computer was not vulnerable for long and is no longer vulnerable. If you are running Windows Vista and have the UAC turned on (the thing that asks you „Confirm or Deny“ whenever you try to install anything) then you are minimally at risk,sac longchamp.

There are many ways to make a system more secure but basic security practices would have minimized your risk to this virus as well as similar ones:

1,sacs a main longchamp. Use a firewall – this will stop almost any worm attack,converse homme.

2,sac longchamp pas cher. Stay on top of updating your operating system,converse all star.

3,longchamp pas cher. Use an up-to-date antivirus program,longchamp soldes,What Is The Conficker Virus .

The above go a long way toward keeping you productive and safe from viruses,converse pas cher.
