Check if your PC is affected by DNS-Changer Malware


What is DNS Changer?

DNS Changer is malware that redirects your Internet traffic to malicious DNS servers and affects both Windows and Mac users.

The DNS Changer botnet was stopped in November 2011. To provide users with time to clean infected computers, new clean DNS servers are maintained but these servers will be turned off on July 9, 2012. If your computer was infected by the DNS Changer malware, your network settings may still point to the temporary DNS servers.
