FBI: Computers Infected w/ DNSChanger Trojan Lose Internet Access July

Quote:
Hundreds of thousands of infected PCs could be without Internet access beginning July 9, 2012, the day the FBI is planning to pull the plug on servers it seized that had been used to push ads to computers infected with a malware Trojan called DNSChanger. Systems infected with DNSChanger end up being redirected to the servers that were once under the control of the cybercriminals, but now belong to the FBI.

I believe anyone who knows about this, and would fix it has already. Anyone who loses the internet in July will be clueless.

I wonder if anything is going to be done to prevent such meddling in the future. I'm also amazed that ISP's didn't notify the owners of infected systems that the used DNS were in fact hijacked. Surely they should have noticed?
