You might remember the DNSChanger from a previous post of mine, the malware that infects your personal computer by changing the DNS to re-route the Internet traffic from your browser.
Federal Bureau of Investigation first found the malware five years ago and arrested the cyberattackers behind this hideous act but the bureau decided not to shut down the system because it would block the Internet from millions of infected of PCs. The kept it running, until it comes to Monday when the system will be shut down due cost effectiveness.
And if you, unluckily, have got the virus and do not fix it before the prior day you may never Skype again. The problem sounds larger than life but there is a very easy solution for that.
Just go to the DNSChanger Working Group (DCWG) official Website, and run a scan with a hope that shows you a green (all clear) flag. But if it happens to raise a red flag then you definitely have the DNSChanger installed in your PC.
Simply follow the guideline as the site will route you to McAfee’s certain virus removal tool but do it before Monday mate.
DCWG has readied a fix for OSX, Windows 7, Windows XP, and Windows Vista’s fix is pending that is worrisome for me since I am using this version of Windows OS.
