Confiker again in the news – @Shadowserver:EU is bigger than you think guys

I have to confess, I never ever read anything on www.shadowserver.org and everything I write here is taken from this page from McAfee Avert Labs Blog

Shadowserver names 183 country codes and 5994 autonomous systems with Conficker IP in their network space:

* 1086 for the Russian Federation (RU)
* 597 for the United States (US)
* 422 for Ukraine (UA)
* 271 for Romania (RO)
* 244 for Brazil (BR)
* 243 for Republic of Korea (KR)
* 184 for Poland (PL)
* 166 for Bulgaria (BG)
* 147 for Europe (EU)
* 129 for Indonesia (ID)
* 113 for Japan (JP)
* 95 for China (CN)
* 94 for India (IN)

I can not stop myself to notice a very stupid mistake created by ignorance.
If you look at the above quotation you see:
* 271 for Romania (RO)
* 184 for Poland (PL)
* 166 for Bulgaria (BG)
* 147 for Europe (EU)


Well, useless to say… I hope … that the 3 countries are already part of the European Union.
