They formed what came to be called the Conficker Cabal, and began a tireless fight against the worm. But when Confickerâs controllers became aware that their creation was beginning to encounter resistance, they began refining the wormâs code to make it more difficult to trace and more powerful testing the Cabalâs unity and resolve. Will the Cabal lock down the worm before it is too late? Game on.
