Last year over 500 million computers were infected with a DNS changing malware that intercepted URLs and sent unsuspecting users to alternative evil sites instead. The good news is that in November, 2011, the hackers were caught and the FBI substituted their own DNS servers for the malicious ones. Ready for the bad news? The FBI is closing down their DNS servers on July 9, 2012, and if your computer is one of those originally hacked, you will lose your Internet access. To test whether your computer will be affected, visit DCWG and run their DNS changer detector. For a more detailed explanation of the DNS changing malware, read Ask Leo!.
