Conficker D-Day Quiet So Far
None of these things have come to pass, however. Instead, Conficker has been relatively quiet all morning. Several outlets have been tracking the worm and all have spotted minimal activity. McAffee has reported that Conficker is reaching out to its "master," but has so far failed to get through.
What does this all mean? No one knows for sure. It could be a deliberate postponing of a major move by the Conficker criminals, who are just waiting until the attention dies down a little bit, or it could all be an elaborate April Fool's hoax. Either way, you can check back with CNET throughout the day for updates. If anything major goes down, we'll certainly be on top of it, unless, of course, Conficker manages to kill the Internet by plugging the "tubes" with more LOLcats than it can handle. [From: CNET]
