Fix is in the eye of the beholder. OpenDNS was only trying to blow their horn
And Kaspersky or who ever probably did not mind.
Cant remember details so I could be wrong but when Conficker was headline there was 1 thing annoying me, and not for the first time. Why the heck does this have to be a problem when fix has been out for "ages" ? When fix/patch is released there should be no screaming headlines on every popular tech site. MS fails for the xxxxxxxth time but it just gets worse because of users with no clue. If not updating OS, server or whatever is considered required, or there are no adequate policy of how to deploy important/emergency "fixes", then dump whole setup and use something you trust and will keep updated. Linux, Mac - Wii! How hard can it be?
