    Downadup put on notice

    With an estimated 10 million PCs infected by the stealthy worm known as Conficker, it's a good bet that plenty of administrators are blissfully unaware that their networks are playing host to the pest. Now, a free service called OpenDNS is offering a new feature designed to alert administrators to the damage and help them contain it.

    OpenDNS just keeps on proving to be a valuable service. We are VERY lucky that they are kind enough to offer a free service still.
