  1. There is a new computer worm that is coming out on April 1. Is there any way to stop it. The write up on it is called No joke in April Fool's Day computer worm.

    ..The article I just read which shared the title "No joke in April Fool's Day Computer Worm" suggests that it's not "coming out" on April first, it's simply going to be fully exploited via a "master computer". It's already spread to roughly 5-10 million systems and is mostly lying dormant at this point. They also clearly state that if your system is still regularly updating Windows and it's AV you are likely not infected.

    Keep Windows and your AV up to date, follow typical security procedures, remove the tin-foil hat and stop looking at the sky (because it's not falling) and you should be fine.
