W32.Downadup.C Digs in Deeper

Symantecís ongoing monitoring of Downadup (a.k.a. Conficker) has today resulted in the observation of a completely new variant being pushed out to systems that are already infected with Downadup. After taking into account the hype surrounding some other recent reports of variants of Downadup, Symantec is calling this new variant W32.Downadup.C.
