Conficker: April Fool Hype or A genuine threat?

I'm just curious about all people talking about this worm, which is said to have infected more than 12 millions pc worldwide, and is slated to activate all the zombie pc's into something really nasty by 1 April 2009, which is the April Fool day...

But there's no harm in checking whether you've been infected or not. Point your browser towards f-secure.com,symantec, microsoft.com, kaspersky or other security sites. If you get a "page cannot be displayed" error for all the sites, there's a good chance they're blocked by Conficker or similar malware on your PC.
