The FBI initially announced that the servers which were replacing the malicious ones will be shut down on March 8, 2012. This is today… but the DNS servers still function.
According to the FBI, there are close to 500.000 computers which still use the DNS settings set up by the malware. Because of this, it was decided to prolong the deadline until July 9th. So, this gives the affected users another four months time to clean up their computers.
