Conficker monitoring

Wednesday, February 19, 2014 - 09:35

We've disabled our monitoring of netflow feeds for W32/Conficker/Downadup infections. Given the decreasing number of vulnerable systems, the wide awareness of this issue and the low threat posed by the malware we've decided it was no longer worth the effort and resources to maintain a system that was generating a handful of alerts each day.

Our reports of infections will continue, but they'll only be sourced from data sent to us by third parties such as Shadowserver.
