DNSChanger malware: One day left to react

We wrote about the DNSChanger malware and about the Avira tool which detects if your computer’s DNS settings were altered and restores the defaults in case they were changed by the malware.

Tomorrow, July 9th, the FBI will shutdown the DNS servers which allow the computers infected with this malware to use the Internet.

According to an article which quotes sources from the FBI, there are about 270.000 computers still infected with this malware which use the FBI servers.

 

Make sure you take the necessary steps to detect if you will be affected and how to fix the problem.
