    I have Comodo Defence Plus active at the moment. Also my browsers are protected by GesWall.

    This is not a big deal at all. As long as the guidelines from this article have been followed, there should be no need to rely on any security software to ward off the Conficker. It's mostly common sense.

    Also something Wilders member Rmus posted somewhere:

    • Block TCP ports 139 and 445 at the firewall:

    "This port is used to initiate a connection with the affected component. Blocking TCP ports 139 and 445 at the firewall will help protect systems that are behind that firewall from attempts to exploit this vulnerability. We recommend that you block all unsolicited inbound communication from the Internet to help prevent attacks that may use other ports. For more information about ports, visit the following Web site."
