DownadupA third version of the worm Downadup has been identified by Security company Symantec.

The worm Downadup started spreading over the internet in high speed in the beginning of January has now been released in an updated version. (Also called Conficker.c)

The worm is now starting to act as a trojan instead of a worm.

The new version is also turning off several different Windows functions such as the included Antivirus software, which makes it more difficult to identify the virus.
