Conficker Worm in Utah University

by Lee

The conficker worm has affected 700 computers at the University of Utah. The worm can slow down PCs and steal information.

It has infiltrated computers at the colleges of nursing, pharmacy and health as well as hospitals and medical school computers.

Chris Nelson, the health sciences spokesman, said that no patient data nor medical records were comprised. “That’s secured in a much deeper way because of the implications,” said Nelson.

It could be siphoning login and stealing bank information.
