What is the DNS Changer Malware?

BACKGROUND

  • Up to 64,000 U.S. computers could lose Internet service Monday due to malware that may have infected them more than a year ago. The malware was discovered when FBI agents prepared to take down a group of international hackers last year.
  • The malicious software has likely slowed the Web surfing of infected computers, as well as disabled anti-virus software. Most users are likely unaware that their system is infected.
  • Systems infected by the malware will lose their ability to go online, and users will have to call their service providers for help deleting the malware and reconnecting to the Internet.
  • The number of computers likely infected is more than 277,000 worldwide, down from about 360,000 in April. The FBI believes that about 64,000 are in the U.S., and 50 Fortune 500 companies are still infected.

    Thanks for that DNS Changer Malware check link Rick. I checked awhile back but there’s no such thing as “too safe” is there?
