Although computer technologies are improved every day, hackers also continue creating new ways of penetrating into PCs and infecting their systems. Conficker Worm proves that the only aim of cyber criminals is to delude new victims into disclosing their personal and credit card details. This attacker is reported to be extremely sophisticated and to use some new technologies. This worm is a challenge to security specialists and puts computers in real danger.
The infection finds vulnerabilities in the system and running applications and uses them to enter the targeted PC. After it has managed to gain access to the computer, it receives instructions from some remote server. This server gives the attacker any necessary files and information to make it possible for Conficker to accomplish its fraudulent plan.
If you happen to become a victim of this worm, you have to do everything you can to find a way and remove the attacker. Otherwise it will put your computer in real danger, as well as all the information saved on it. If the intruder is not removed from the system, its creators will be able to gain access to your personal details and documents and misuse them in every possible way.
To be sure that your PC will not be infected with rogueware applications or other creations of cyber criminals, you have to avoid visiting unknown web pages and clicking on suspicious web ads. Furthermore, you have to install only legitimate and reliable applications on your PC. Only in this way you can be sure that you will not download or install a virus on your machine.
