DNSChanger Trojan infected computers Jul 9, 12 "Drop Dead" date


Recommended Posts

FYI. One can skip the detail and run a check at http://www.dns-ok.us/ or other diagnostic sites in the links below.


"If it is July 9 and you don't know where your Internet went, you might want to get in touch with

the DNSChanger Working Group (DCWG)


Monday is the "drop dead" date for people whose computers are still infected with the DNSChanger Trojan to get rid of it. Those who haven't may not lose Internet access entirely, but Paul Vixie, of the nonprofit Internet Systems Consortium (ISC), said, "some of them will lose the ability to look up domain names, which will stop their Internet access in most cases. Others will see significant slowdowns.""
