- In Iceland, Conficker brought a brief thaw to the long economic winter
that began last year with the government's inexorable slide into
bankruptcy. According to local news reports, shortly after midnight
local time, an ATM in the capital city of Reykjavik began spewing
100-Krona notes. Banking officials there reportedly said the Microsoft
Windows-based based bank system began disbursing the bills after a local
prankster crammed an infected USB stick into the maw of the teller
machine.
