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.
