What annoys me even more than the FBI supposedly knowing how to deal with this issue,
is the person asking what does 'DNS' mean when there is a link right there of "Introduction to Domain Name System (DNS)"  angry2.gif

We still haven't moved that far off from "I can't find the any key"

Using a trusted DNS server like OpenDNS is a good start even for those who don't understand what's going on with DNS, DNSChanger, etc.

Preventing Malware Attacks with OpenDNS (OpenDNS channel on Youtube)

The Youtube video playlist above points to a four part video:

Summary: OpenDNS provides industry-leading malware protection that's delivered through the DNS layer. Unlike more traditional malware blocking services, our innovative approach actually blocks known malicious or infected sites from resolving on your network, preventing them from causing your network and your school, company or organization any damage. Attend this 30-minute webinar and learn why you can't afford to leave your DNS unprotected from malware. Speakers include DNS security expert and Sales Engineer Brian Hartvigsen.

Sorry to be the party-pooper, but what does this have to do with Linux?

I know as Linux users, we are not supposed to be vulnerable to this type of attack so how does this affect us penguins?

"Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress toward more pain." -George Orwell, 1984
