Conficker

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know if Conficker will affect Macs (without Windows)?

With BootCamp and Windows? -
With Parallels and Windows? -
With Fusion and Windows? -

I heard it's safer NOT to go on line on April 1. Is that a fact or just someone blowing smoke?

My bad. Didn't read his entire question.

You're right, only affects Windows.

Yes, it's safer to be offline than it is to be online on any given day

It's interesting how all the hype over the Conficker virus has fueled the Mac vs WindowsPC debate. I've read some pretty amusing comments on some of the news articles about it.
