How to Remove Conficker virus
Posted on 2009-04-25
I am sure everyone aware of the Conficker virus. We got our network infected yesterday with this nasty virus. Eventhough we had AVG installed, looked like some one brought this virus from their laptop.
Our office network has aroudn 40 desktops and 15 laptops and 5 servers (4virtual server and 1 physical server all running windows server 2003) running as DC, web and DB server etc..
The virus started on a desktop PC. After I noticed that I switched off all the servers first. Then I found that few PC's which had Mcafee showed the virus below
virus name at1.job Virus Type: conficker.worm.job
Virus Name: antwtllbhz.ca Virus Type: conficker.work.gen.a
Now I disconnected all the desktop and laptop Pc's from the network. Only the servers are running at the moment.
Can some one help me on
1. how to check the servers (windows server 2003) are infected, if it is how to cleanup
2. How to run the clean up on all the desktop and laptop Pc's?
I did a google search and found so many solutions but couldn't find which one really works. since this is affecting our entire network, I would like to remove this virus permanently..
Note: all the Pc's had the MS patch as well.
