I still expect a big April Fools about this tomorrow... but, better to
be safe than sorry.

Subject: Conficker and April 1st
I read yesterday that they've figured out how to detect a computer
infected with Conficker using a port scanner.
I have found the attached program written by the people who discovered
the fingerprint. I got it from the following web site;
It is a windows executable, from the command prompt (Dos). Once it is
extracted go to the directory where you extracted it and run it followed
by the beginning IP address then the ending IP address of the range you
want looked at. A colligue seems to be having trouble running it on Win
2003, I've had success running it on XP Pro.
If all you see is No Response (the computers have to be on to be
checked) and Seems to be Clean then life is good.
