Interesting stuff. It sounds like the machines may actually be transitioning over to Waledac.

Conficker is the lead in to the soon to be released 'Terminator 4: Attack of the unpatched machines' movie.  Nobody was buying the whole "skynet" thing anymore so someone cooked up conficker to make us believe.....

Sounds more like the teaser to the sequel of Daemon - A Novel than anything else.  ;)

I'll bet that was it! Conficker was really just a viral marketing campaign for Daemon all along  :o
