re: Microsoft: Conficker Worm Remains 'Ongoing' Threat
The count I have so far for April, is 14+ million unique IPs with over 19+ million unique user agents. -To only count the infected IPs significantly underestimates the infection numbers.

There are single IPs with over 1000 infected hosts.-

The real risk with conficker is that it disables AV software, so these system are at higher risk to be infected with other malware.

I agree with the previous poster. I have to say though I am still surprised by the numbers.

To me this Conflickr virus was the new blaster. Microsoft patched this
vulnerability long before the virus hit the problem is a lot of IT
professionals and home users do not realize the important of patching
and a good anti-virus.
