Conficker.C is expected to contact various domains so it may obtain a set of instructions to carry out. Researchers have found the date of April 1st hard coded into Conficker.C as the date that these actions may take place. The domain generation algorithm has been slightly changed from previous versions of Conficker which makes Conficker.C much different. Below is a list of few of the domains that Conficker.C may contact on April 1st.
