Australia: RailCorp Wrestles With Conficker

Suzanne Tindal writes on ZDNet Australia:

RailCorp has confirmed that some of its workstations had been infected with the Conficker virus, although it insisted that the virus had caused no operational impact.

"Instances of the virus were detected on some workstations on various networks. However, there has been no wide scale outbreak," a spokesperson for the corporation told

The organisation's security and patching stance made sure that the "bulk" of its computing network wasn't susceptible to the virus, they continued.

The antivirus had also paid its way. "Instances where the virus was able to infect a machine were isolated and resulted in no loss of service to commuters or operational capacity for RailCorp," the spokesperson said.
