HELSINKI (Reuters) - Computer specialist Didier Stevens put up a simple text advertisement on the Internet offering downloads of a computer virus for people who did not have any. Surprisingly, he
found as many as 409 people clicking on the ad saying "Is your PC virus-free? Get it infected here!" during a 6-month advertising campaign on Google's Adword, said the IT security expert.
"Some of them
must have clicked on it by mistake. Some must have been curious or stupid," said Mikko Hypponen, head of research at data security firm F-Secure.
There was no virus involved, it was an experiment
aiming to show these kind of advertising systems can be used for malicious intent, Stevens told Reuters.

Conficker Worm - A Real and Nasty Virus (Unfortunately, not a joke)
Security experts say that the Conficker worm is expected to activate once
again on on April 1, April Fool's Day. This is a bad joke for web security,

Cybercriminals designed the first two variants of the Conficker worm to
spread worldwide. The third version, 32.Downadup.C, is expected to solidify
its position, experts said.
If the third variation of the worm activates, it can connect infected
computers allowing the zombie machines to receive updates.
The new version can defend itself from security bots as well, experts
said. The worm will attempt to disable Windows Automatic Update and stop
access to the Windows Security Center.
