Conficker (Configure) Worm: April 1st Update is calling the whole conficker worm scare "Much Ado About Nothing."

The worm did become active, and it seems most of the infected computers were in Asia:

As of Monday, 45% of the Conficker.c-infected computers were traced to Asian IP addresses, while another 31% were pegged to European addresses. South American accounted for 14% of the total, and just 5.8% of the infected PCs were using IP addresses associated with North America, Stewart said.

But the worm has not wreaked havoc on the internet as some feared.

My advice is the same: keep your anitvirus software current.  You are asking for trouble if you don't.  I wrote about how to get rid of this particular worm in a previous article.
