Conficter Worm will harm linux?

Is there a way that Conficter Worm will harm suse?

Linux platforms are not directly susceptible to this worm. It may affect windows based sites that Linux platforms wish to visit but does not put Linux at risk. If you have a windows OS running in a Virtual session, then that Windows virtual session is at risk, but not the underlying Linux.

My Son was talking with me last night about this. He picked this up on his windows exchange server, imported from a pen drive brought home by his wife:X (fly on the wall:idea:)

Anyone know what solutions are avail.?

The rate it is going right now, it won’t harm Windows.

It seems mostly hype to me.

No, it will not. I didn’t write it to damage Linux, are you crazy? :stuck_out_tongue: :stuck_out_tongue:
