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.
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. The worm also attaches itself to certain Windows processes such as svchost.exe, explorer.exe and services.exe. Taken from Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conficker One nasty drater that is. Gotta love it.

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.
