How To Tell At A Glance If You're Infected With Cornflicker



April 22nd, 2009 12:02 pm | by Ed |

Now that the Cornflicker worm has switched itself on and started doing more than just updating itself, it's more important than ever to be sure that your machine isn't infected. Recently I ran into a great way to test any computer with an internet connection and a web browser.

Because cornflicker blocks access to a large number of anti-virus and security websites the "Cornflicker Eye Chart" makes a great quick test. All you need to do is load the page and see if all of the remote images from three A/V and security websites that cornflicker is known to block. If all of the images load, then you're probably not infected. If they don't load then you could have a problem.
