The Honeynet Project is excited to announce the release of Know Your Enemy: Containing Conficker. In this paper we present several potential methods to contain Conficker.

Furthermore, we demonstrate various methods to detect and remove Conficker locally and a potential vaccination tool is presented. Read more »
The Honeynet Project is very excited to announce a new scanning tool for detecting Conficker and an upcoming Know Your Enemy paper detailing how to contain Conficker.

Felix and I had a discussion with Dan Kaminsky about the possibilities to actively detect Conficker and wrote a scanner for this task. Read more »
