BEWARE!!! Conficker Computer Worm Strikes Tomorrow!!


Hey didn't know if you all had heard yet, but there is a
computer worm...
No...not a nice one like Lowly here...
a destructive one that is supposed to be
released tomorrow...April Fool's Day.
They don't know if it will do much damage, but
I heard someone say if you do not need your computer tomorrow
TURN IT OFF!!!
That's the only sure-fire way not to have any
problems with Conficker.
Here is a link to help those who are more computer
savvy than I protect against possible damage.

I am turning off for tomorrow!!
NO WE DID IT! WEDNESDAY
We will resume next week!!
Please protect your computer one way or another!
Blessings and hugs,
Becky

  3. My husband who is an IT smarty pants said that this is only a Windows virus and will only affect computers that run on windows. So if you have Firefox (like me) or Safari or some other non-windows system you will be ok. I was quite relieved when he told me that. I thought for sure I'd have to go computer free tomorrow! fingers crossed for everyone!

  4. Hey, Becky! Thanks for the reminder! I did see something about it on the news on Sunday...and they say kids from another country are behind it! We truly need to keep the youth of today in our prayers.

  5. I am right there with you sister, I will not be turning on my computer either. Now if I just remember not to that! hehehe! Guess I will be leaving a note on my computer tonight! ;O)

    It will give me more time to work on items for the shop instead of being on the computer all the time!!

    Have a great day tomorrow!!

  10. even if someone used Conficker to steal my credit card info, there wouldn't be any credit there for them to exploit or spend
