Conficker Virus Draws TV Stations to Schrock Innovations

The non-event that was the Conficker virus sparked a ton of media attention on April 1.  In one afternoon two TV crews visited the new Schrock Innovations Computer Repair Service Center in Lincoln, NE to talk about the virus.

I was also interviewed by the 1240 AM KFOR newsroom on March 31st.

In both interviews I predicted that the virus would be a non-event, but that the bot network left behind could be leveraged at a later date for just about anything.

Channel 10/11 ran a lengthened report on their website, and this is the video of that report used with permission.  I did have to edit this video a bit to keep one of our local competitors happy.
