Eye Chart to Diagnose Conficker Virus

"Quote from Cnet"

Joe Stewart from SecureWorks has put together an effective "eye chart" that sources its graphics from sites that Conficker would block. If you can't see one or more of the images, you're either infected, or image loading in your browser has been disabled.

Or... you're using Firefox with an ad-block extension that blocks one or more of those images.

Thanks, Joe and New61. This is a good idea and I'll suggest that we use it at our college's HelpDesk as part of their triage process.

...Obviously I'm not infected. Spent most of yesterday building my new pc, and installing/moving essential programs/files/folders (including my many layers of security). Didn't do that because of this virus, it was because the package came the day before. Several of my classmates were quite scared of it though, and decided to turn of their internet (a dumb, but effective measure...). Anyways, nice find, useful for checking out if you're infected or not.
