Free Conficker removal for business networks

BitDefender UK : 31 March, 2009  (New Product)
BitDefender expands its free offer of Conficker removal software to encompass business networks which can be used without having to clean up individual workstations
BitDefender has introduced a business network version of its free tool designed to remove all variants of the Conficker (or Downadup) worm . The removal tool can be accessed at from the BitDefender tools website.

While BitDefender's removal tool was initially launched for home users , the company has added a similar removal tool for business networks. This unique removal tool is scalable and can be used by networks of various sizes. The tool allows IT administrators to easily and centrally remove the Conficker worm from business networks without the need to run a local removal tool on each machine, thus avoiding the risks of the worm spreading throughout the network again.

Commenting on the development, Vlad Valceanu, BitDefender's senior malware analyst said: "Home workstations are not the only entities being affected by the Conficker worm. Business networks are also being infected, which is simply unacceptable, especially in the current economic crisis. BitDefender is supporting businesses around the globe that are infected by the worm by offering this free and easy-to-use removal tool."

Conficker is a network worm that takes advantage of vulnerabilities in Windows to spread. Once a system is compromised, the worm disables Windows Update and blocks access to anti-virus websites in order to hinder the user's attempts to disinfect the machine. The latest version of Conficker is scheduled to activate on April 1.
