This new variant also makes attempts at removing security tools designed to spot and eliminate this critter.
Integrator and security software maker Enigma Software Group has published a free Conficker removal tool, demonstrated in the video below.
The Conficker removal tool can be downloaded from this Web page.
I don't have a Windows virtual machine readied to try this tool. So if you've used it, please drop a note and let us know how well it's worked.
