Postby evilfantasy » Fri Mar 27, 2009 11:53 am

In the run up to April 1st, McAfee is offering a special build of its stand-alone cleaning tool christened Stinger which will be updated on a daily basis to include any undetected Conficker variants from the wild.

Please ensure that your copy of Microsoft Windows is patched and security software is fully up to date to ensure that April 1st 2009, is a day like any other day!

McAfee AVERT Stinger Conficker

Remember updating Windows and your antivirus regularly is the best defense against this threat.

I'm not seeing Conficker mentioned in the update history?

Removal of ePO-supported Stinger tools

The stinger linked to on the Stinger page isn't the Conficker one either. The correct one for Conficker is;

http://vil.nai.com/vil/conficker_stinge ... ficker.exe

... which for some reason, isn't mentioned on the Stinger homepage (found the link via Majorgeeks)

The one on the Stinger page is different from the Stinger_Coficker version.

The Stinger page download is 2.51MB and the Stinger_Coficker is 1.38MB.

Open the Stinger_Conflicker file and choose List Viruses and it shows 11 versions it detects.
