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

I have to confess, I never ever read anything on 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.
