Conficker Worm on NPR's Fresh Air


Interesting show. Much less hysteria and FUD than one would expect, especially given the title of the episode.

At the link, you can read a news story, read the transcript, or listen to the show:

Jesus you scared me. I frequently visit NPR quite a lot and have a second hard drive with Windows 7 on it. I thought the title meant NPR had Conficker on it. Ugh... lol.
