Conficker Botnet 'Dead In the Water,' Researcher Says

But there are still 6.5 million machines infected, and worm continues to spread

After over a year of waiting for the sleeping giant Conficker botnet to come to life, some security researchers are now starting to think it may just be dead rather than dormant: they say the original creators of the Conficker botnet appear to have abandoned ship, leaving the worm to merely spread on its own via unpatched Windows machines.

they need not live in darkness...
Justice is foundation and Mercy ETERNAL

Yet we remain on the shore of what we know."
