Downadup a serious threat to PCs

Worm threatens about a third of all PCs experts warn. See article in Network World:

The Downadup worm—also called Conflicker—has now infected an estimated 10 million PCs worldwide, and security experts say they expect to see a dangerous second-stage payload dropped soon.

"It has the potential to infect about 30% of Windows systems online, a potential 300 to 350 million PCs," says Don Jackson, director of threat intelligence in the counter threat unit at SecureWorks.
