The big news today about Conficker ... is that there is no news

For the moment everything looks calm. Although it is almost April 1 throughout the whole world there is not yet any news about of the end of the world. Today, the media expected big problems as result from the spreading of the worm conficker and the new "payload" that would be activated.

More than a result of a large patch campaign, I think that the famous worm exploited a large media campaign that exaggerated and overestimated its effects. I expect this to be just another day in the life of a security research. Anyway, if something happens, I will be updating my twitter and my tumbr (this is Spanish only). In case of infection or pro-action against the worm, here are some resources.
