Security Patches and the Conficker Worm


Well, the media has done their usual stellar job on computer technology subjects, so after this weekend you may have gotten some questions about the Conficker worm. Here’s a few pointers to hand out to the relatives and associates:

Microsoft released an out of band security bulletin last October that deals with this. The bulletin is here.

Microsoft has a site for the Conficker worm on Microsoft OS’s. Check here to learn more. There’s a consumer version of the site here.

And of course, all of the security bulletins for SQL Server are here. As always, test before you put into production.
