In case anyone is worried about such the Cornflicker virus: http://www.baylor.edu/its/security/conficker/

I'd like to humbly point out this chart comes from Baylor University which of course is located in glorious Texas.

There is a rumour that Trend Micro--one of the sites offering free Conficker scans--may have deliberately spread the Conficker warnings.

I have yet to hear of anyone's computer actually getting attacked by this virus.

That doesn't mean it isn't real: http://www.snopes.com/computer/virus/conficker.asp

Just be wary of the anti-spyware you choose. It is not unusual for anti-spyware to actually contain, um, spyware or other malware or adware. Avast!, Zone Alarm, AVG are relatively safe. Norton hogs resources and should be removed, as it is also less effective lately. It comes pre-installed on a lot of new PCs, but it sucks. McAfee is similarly bloated and less effective.

You can get a freeware copy of Kerio Personal Firewall at www.nonags.com, and lock things down whenever your machine isn't actually I-netting.
