Abstract

In an unprecedented act of coordination and collaboration, the cybersecurity community, including Microsoft, ICANN, domain registry operators, anti-virus vendors, and academic researchers organized to block the infected computers from reaching the domains – an informal group that was eventually dubbed the Conficker Working Group (CWG). They sought to register and otherwise block domains before the Conficker author, preventing the author from updating the botnet. Despite a few errors, that effort was very successful.
