Same here, well I am the evil task master making sure our IT shop is getting it done. Folks are collectively shitting bricks at work. Mainly because of all of the medical equipment on our network.

It's all over /b/, they believe its just another way for someone to trick people into deleting system32. but from what I hear its global. only one thing to do. Sit, wait and see. I'm going to be pissed if my lap top gets erased.

The conservative estimate of infected machines is around 10mil, I would guess its closer to 12 or 13. It could be a big hoax or simply send out a massive amount of spam. Or it could be the coming of Skynet! I for one, welcome our robot overlords!

so, there's like no details on what it is?

is it an exe i have to open?

Negative, its a worm. McAfee has a scanner/scrub tool out right now. It is on its 4th version and is supposed to report back to the mother ship April 1. There are various theory's as to what the controller of the botnet is going to do with it.

Edit:

If your machine didnt get the MS auto patch for March you are probably infected. Just a little FYI.

yea, last night i was joking with my cousin, and I said in an ominous tone "Judgment day came April 1st 2009...."

seriously though, there's already a skynet in my area. it's like an ISP for people who live in the boonies. there's ads out on the county roads.
