Windows 7: Conficker Worm Hits Cerritos College

14 May 2009   #1

7 Pro Build 7600.16385x64 [2.0 WEI]
Conficker Worm Hits Cerritos College

I'm at work right now and we kept getting annoying popups that said something like "McShield.exe" and it said that it encountered an error and that to press OK to Terminate program or Cancel to debug. That was going on for about an hour then about 5 IT guys came and logged in as admins and were running scans and such. it happened to about 5 computers around my area. I couldn't really hear all they were saying but I did notice and take some screenshots of the scans.

Not too sure really what the conficker worm does or has done to our systems other than that observation. and there was another scan that actually said "conficker" detected, but they have since re-ran the scan. this one says Artemis!CA6D91BAD9D5 but a Google search turned up nothing.
