DNSChanger – the clock is ticking …

The DNSChanger malware that has been effectively neutralized by the take over of the Estonian servers hosting the rogue DNS servers will have a sting in the tail for those still infected when the servers are switched off on 9 July 2012 – no access to your favourite web sites or any service that requires a DNS lookup – in practice nothing will work.

Forbes ┬áhave published a story from the FBI regarding this – note that DNSChanger affects Macs too. Some direct advice from the DNSChanger Working Group (DCWG) is here.

To check whether you are infected, use the DNSChanger Check tool┬áthat is linked to from the DCWG – if you are infected then you have until 9 July to disinfect your computer.
