I have realised that some hacks that were really viruses are this a virus called conifcker C read this and make sure any hack that you download is not the conficker C
Malware creators love to target April Fool's Day with their wares, and the latest worm, called Conficker C, could be one of the most damaging attacks we've seen in years.
Conficker first bubbled up in late 2008 and began making headlines in January as known infections topped 9 million computers. Now in its third variant, Conficker C, the worm has grown incredibly complicated, powerful, and virulent... though no one is quite sure exactly what it will do when D-Day arrives.
Thanks in part to a quarter-million-dollar bounty on the head of the writer of the worm, offered by Microsoft, security researchers are aggressively digging into the worm's code as they attempt to engineer a cure or find the writer before the deadline. What's known so far is that on April 1, all infected computers will come under the control of a master machine located somewhere across the web, at which point anything's possible. Will the zombie machines become denial of service attack pawns, steal personal information, wipe hard drives, or simply manifest more traditional malware pop-ups and extortion-like come-ons designed to sell you phony security software? No one knows.
Conficker is clever in the way it hides its tracks because it uses an enormous number of URLs to communicate with HQ. The first version of Conficker used just 250 addresses each day -- which security researchers and ICANN simply bought and/or disabled -- but Conficker C will up the ante to 50,000 addresses a day when it goes active, a number which simply can't be tracked and disabled by hand.
At this point, you should be extra vigilant about protecting your PC: Patch Windows completely through Windows Update and update your anti-malware software as well. Make sure your antivirus software is actually running too, as Conficker may have disabled it.
The Conflicker Bug mainly infects servers rather than Home PC's unless you are connected to a "commercial" wireless network that is infected, the Bug could transfer to your PC that way but otherwise it won't infect your computer. To take every precaution make sure you are upgraded to Vista SP1. (If on Vista). But there is nothing to worry about.
DUDE. I heard about this virus. Its already infected 20 million computers worldwide. Mainly in Asia and Russia though because it is spread through torrent sites and illegally downloaded stuff. Guys this really is serious. so be careful. and if your not surte about downloading it, then just dont do it.
