Microsoft Offers $250,000 Reward to Catch Worm Authors
Microsoft has created a new technology industry posse and a $250,000 reward for people who help turn over the creators of the Conficker worm.
The Conficker worm multiplied like wildfire, and spreads through a hole found in Microsoft Windows systems, though the vulnerability was patched in October. It also is able to disable anti-malware protection and will block an infected PC from visiting anti-malware vendors Web sites to receive updates.
Security experts are even more worried about the possibility the worm calls home every 24 hours to at least 250 servers each day for instructions or directed actions.
