DNS Changer

I did not see that this was posted already. I checked my computer and got a green light.

How can you detect if your computer has been violated and infected with DNS Changer?

An industry wide team has developed easy “are you infected” web sites. They are a quick way to determine if you are infected with DNS Changer. Each site is designed for any normal computer user to browse to a link, follow the instructions, and see if they might be infected. Each site has instructions in their local languages on the next steps to clean up possible infections.

CNN did a story on this last night - they listed the URL to go to to check your computer - I checked and also got a green light. Big sigh of relief.

I read recently that a website called DCWG or something is using a bogus test to install viruses, malware and trojans onto unsuspecting users' computers.





Just kidding. Maybe.

You have to be careful. I had the same thought, but I saw that url from a reputable site the day before, so wasn't alarmed.
