OpenDNS vs Conficker: 2-0

The free alternative DNS server, OpenDNS, has made the fight against the Conficker worm its flagship. For a while it has promised to protect its users against the worm with its generic Botnet Protection feature. Now, it has launched a service that allows you to find out whether you are already infected, if you sign up with them after the fact.

OpenDNS accepts both individual PCs, home network and businesses of any size.

Not that any of you would need any of that, of course. Still, you may suddenly meet some ordinary person.
