About Conficker…

Conficker exploits a vulnerability that was announced in late October of 2008. By mid-November, most campus systems were patched. In late January, the last of the remaining vulnerable computers were either patched or removed from the network. While it’s possible that some student laptops on the wireless network may be infected, we don’t expect there to be any significant problems on April 1st.

Here’s a nice FAQ.
