    No worries, Conficker worm takes advantage of Microsoft vulnerabilities. It is not capable of infecting a BlackBerry.

    Tomorrow is the day, all of the infected machines will activate their payload.

    ...
    Variant C places a copy of itself on any attached removable media (such as USB flash drives), from which it can then infect new hosts through the Windows AutoRun mechanism.
    ...
    While BlackBerry is not vulnerable, the media card can be infected to spread the worm.

    no, blackberrys are not susceptible. The media card should only be if you formatted it using a windows computer with it inside of a memory card reader.

    It's a storage unit recognized by Windows, if you take the virus and store it on your memory card and then move it to another PC then you have infected that PC as well.

    Chances of it...slim to none, but it's plausable.
