Don't be alarmed if you open up your Facebook account and get a large warning message that says, "Your computer or network might be infected."

Facebook announced today that its security team has joined a consortium of computer security experts working to clean up malicious malware called DNSChanger. As a result, the social network can now notify victims, who may have infected computers, and help them figure out how to rid their networks of the botnet. (See full warning below).

Yet another reason to set up the DNS servers in your routers set up page rather than typing the DNS servers into the IPv4 properties window.

Although anyone with any common sense should realize that the second you see your browser going places where you didn't direct it to go then you have a big problem.

While other less experienced users just blindly sit there and go along for the ride.
