Web users beware: DNSChanger victims lose Web access July 9

Quote:
If you're one of thousands of people infected with the DNSChanger malware, get rid of it before Monday.

On July 9, the FBI will be switching off servers it used to keep those infected with the malware on the Internet. The organization says maintaining the servers is costly and that therefore the agency won't extend its support.

Terrible, terrible malware.

DNS redirection is a horrible thing to do to one's system.. and ISP's like Comcast actually use it too sometimes to 'direct' you to certain 'approved' versions of search results unless you 'explicitly' tell them not do or opt out of their 'helpful' DNS redirection 'services'.
