Seeing as the OP was not smart enough to explain what cornflicker is...here it is in a nutshell.

http://www.geeknewscentral.com/archives/008725.html

It's a self updating virus than can literally take over your computer...

Just to clarify. It is an april fools joke that the cornflicker virus has updated itself. The reality is that people are sending in fake reports to news agencies as an April Fools joke. The virus however appears to be real.

What is the Conficker worm?

Conficker.C is the most recent variant of the Conficker worm. Exposure to Conficker.C is limited to systems that are still infected with the earlier variants, Conficker.A and Conficker.B, which operate by exploiting the MS08-067 vulnerability in Microsoft Windows Server Service. If the vulnerability is successfully exploited, it could allow remote code execution when file sharing is enabled. Conficker combats efforts at eradication by creating scheduled tasks and/or using autorun.inf files to reactivate itself.

McAfee has identified thousands of binaries that carry the Conficker payload. Depending on the specific variant, the worm may spread via LAN, WAN, web, or removable drives, and by exploiting weak passwords. Conficker disables several important system services and security products, and downloads arbitrary files. Computers infected with the worm become part of an “army” of compromised computers and could be used to launch attacks on websites, distribute spam, host phishing websites, or carry out other malicious activities.
How to tell if your system is infected

There. Proper explanation for the idiots.

Just keep your anti-virus program updated and run FixDownaup once in a while. And if you're infected you wont be able to go to certain websites like microsoft.com and some internet security websites like symatec.

Just format your hdd if thats the case

Conficker, also known as Downadup or Kido, is the latest super virus to spread around the Internet and has security experts in a panic. When last we checked, about a week ago, Conficker had already spread to 9 million PCs, with little sign of slowing. Now it has infected at least 10 million PCs and experts believe there may be up to 350 million vulnerable computers out there.

The worm isn't just exploiting a networking hole, however; it features a sophisticated method of cracking administrator passwords, making it difficult to remove, and also copies itself to USB drives so that it can spread even when the online flaw is plugged.
