Conficker Worm Strikes ANZ Bank

Suzanne Tindal writes on ZDNet.com.au:

Australia and New Zealand Banking Group today confirmed it had become the victim of a computer virus attack, with sources saying it was the much-hyped Conficker worm.

"We have detected a known virus affecting some internal desktop services on the ANZ network," a spokesperson for the bank told ZDNet.com.au today, saying that the virus had been contained and there hadn't been any disruption to its business or implications for information security.

The spokesperson did not specify which virus had infected the bank's desktops, but ZDNet.com.au believes it is a variation of the Conficker worm.
