FBI repeats DNSChanger warning - deadline in July

Don't Lose the Internet in July! FBI Repeats DNSChanger Warning
Quote:
If you've still got DNSChanger on your computer, you could be in for a frustrating summer. The FBI has repeated a warning that as many as half a million computers still infected with the malware could lose their Internet connections on July 9 because the agency is shutting down an expensive workaround to the problem.

Web could vanish for hordes of people in July, FBI warns

Infected PCs may lose Internet in July
Quote:
The number of victims is hard to pinpoint, but the FBI believes that on the day of the arrests, at least 568,000 unique Internet addresses were using the rogue servers. Five months later, FBI estimates that the number is down to at least 360,000. The U.S. has the most, about 85,000, federal authorities said. Other countries with more than 20,000 each include Italy, India, England and Germany. Smaller numbers are online in Spain, France, Canada, China and Mexico.

There's an easy way to find out if your computer is infected.  Go to the following site, and go down in the text to a highlight link to DNSChanger Eye Chart.  Click on it.  If the background is green,  you're OK.  If it's red, you need to take steps to remove DNSChanger from your computer.
