Over the past few days there has been a lot of concern about the Conficker virus that is expected to strike on April 1, 2009. Callers to my radio show asked me if they should be concerned, and my answer was pretty straight forward.
If the following describes you, you should be relatively safe from the Conficker virus:
* You have a genuine (not illegal) copy of Windows

* You are current with your Windows Updates
* You can get to the website www.symantec.com
