The Conficker worm spreads itself primarily through a buffer overflow vulnerability in the Server Service on Windows computers. The worm uses a specially crafted RPC request to execute code on the target computer.[4]

When executed on a computer, Conficker disables a number of system services such as Windows Automatic Update, Windows Security Center, Windows Defender and Windows Error Reporting.

It then connects to a server, where it receives further orders to propagate, gathers personal information, and downloads and installs additional malware onto the victim's computer.[5] The worm also attaches itself to certain Windows processes such as svchost.exe, explorer.exe and services.exe.[6]

Hope they brutally kill whoever wrote this virus. Brutally, horribly, cave in his skull with a baseball bat and laugh while he chokes on his own blood with his last dying breath. Maybe fire, burn him alive and post a YouTube video of it. Get five-hundred pounds of deadly flesh-eating spiders and dump them on virus writers, set their screams to music.

I just realised what this is all about - Microsoft is willing to pay $250,000 to find someone who can program something that actually WORKS!
