Check for DNS Changer Malware Before Monday, July 9
Easy and Free DNS Check Prevents Loss of Internet Connection
There are still about 64,000 computers in the United States that may be affected by the DNS Changer Malware that was discovered late in 2011. Affected computers have been able to connect to the Internet since the discovery only because the FBI arranged for replacement DNS servers to be used by those computers.
The replacement DNS services will go offline at 12:01 a.m. on Monday, July 9. At that time, affected computers will no longer be able to connect to the Internet.
There is no reason to panic. If you are running proper anti-malware software and it has been kept up to date, it is unlikely that your computer is affected. You can be sure by visiting the DCWG web site or by clicking here. If you receive a green graphic, all is well, and enjoy your weekend. If not, visit the fix page for instructions on how to preserve your Internet access.
