Are you Infected by Conficker?

Security researcher Joe Stewart has developed a very simple and incredibly easy to use tool that will tell you if you have been infected by Conficker. Visit Joe's website here and follow the instructions to test your local computer.

Joe's tool tests whether or not your computer can access a series of websites that are blocked by Conficker. If you can get to these sites then you're clean, if you can't then you've been infected. If you find that you've been infected visit the SANS Internet Storm Center and consult the listed resources for removing Conficker from your computer.
