If a Conficker.C machine successfully updated itself, will it still be

proof yet that Conficker.D or whatever they will call it, is still
vulnerable to t his type of detection?
As far as I can tell, Conficker.D is actually the Conficker.C currently
making the headlines and it's just a difference in naming conventions.
I don't think anybody has seen an update to Conficker.C at the moment,
but as sure as eggs is eggs, detection will be circumvented when an
update does happen. An update could take a couple of weeks to propagate
too so there's still plenty of time to get as many compromised machines
cleaned-up as possible.
