Hi,

Just been informed that the Conficker malware has been discovered on one of
our HQ domain controllers. Looking to run the MRT tool to remove but seeing
as this is a win2003 SP2, HQ DC with AD and is a key server in our
infrastructure just want to know if there is any danger upon reboot [i.e.
once tool has completed a reboot is required]?


Thanks,

It should remove the malware. There are no side effects that I am aware of.

Hello Confused,

See this article about conficker and how to handle it:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/962007

Rebooting a DC is not a problem normally, hopefully you have more then one
and also it is not the only DNS server in the domain.

Unfortunal if a reboot is required you have to do it, to get the server working
if the conficker is removed. When we had it on our machines and removed it
a reboot wasn't required.

Best regards

Meinolf Weber
