Is Your Computer Infected With The DNSChanger Virus?

wikipedia.com

Normally, when I get a message about a virus or malware or any other computer issue, I don’t pay much attention. But today, I stumbled upon a story about the DNSChanger malware virus that has the ability to interrupt your internet service starting Monday. My initial thought was to ignore it, until I saw the letters “FBI” and figured I’d better look into it further.
Turns out, it’s the first thing you see when you visit the FBI’s official website. I did some research and found out that a sting took down a hacker group in Estonia. They discovered servers that were controlling internet access to hundreds of thousands of infected computers, and if they took those servers offline, the infected computers would lose their internet immediately. Their solution was to bring in a company to temporarily stabilize the system. On Monday, that temporary system goes down and your computer could lose its ability to communicate with the internet. Visit the website to find out more about how the FBI tracked down the criminals and how to find out if your computer is infected.
