It’s here, folks! If the replaced DNSChanger servers don’t get another deadline extension, more than 500000 computers may not be able to reach their configured DNS service after next Monday, July 9th, 2012. In other words, it will be practically impossible for them to use them to surf the Internet using the human friendly domain names like www.eset.com. That’s right, many of the systems that were infected by DNSChangerstill have their DNS (Domain Name Service) settings the way they were altered by the malware, even when the malware itself has been removed.
So, what exactly is DNSChanger?
If you have no idea what I am talking about, take a quick peek at one of our previously published posts:
