Don't Lose the Internet in July! FBI Repeats DNSChanger Warning - PCMag

By Damon Poeter

 

If you've still got DNSChanger on your computer, you could be in for a frustrating summer. The FBI has repeated a warning that as many as half a million computers still infected with the malware could lose their Internet connections on July 9 because the agency is shutting down an expensive workaround to the problem.

The FBI has been running DNS servers since last year to replace malicious servers used by a group of Estonians to conduct an affiliate and referral fee scam made possible by the DNSChanger Trojan, which diverted users seeking legitimate websites to sites the cybergang wanted them to visit in order to collect fees from their traffic.

I can not belive they were ethnic Estonians. More probably renagade Russian emigrees with fake pasports. :rolleyes:

All you need on DNS Changer is here > http://www.dcwg.org/ This is basically a one stop shop.

 

Your AV Vendor should be showing something like how ESET is,
