Malicious DNS Changer Trojan May Block Your Internet Access-Truth!

You might have gotten a warning that says a DNS Changer Trojan that hijacks computers is circulating the Internet that reroutes the web browsers to other servers.
DNS stands for “Domain Name System” and the warning goes on to say that any computers infected with this malware will be blocked from the Internet on March 8, 2012.

The warning is real but the government’s threat to block infected computers in March has been extended by four months, according to a March 7, 2012 article in PC Mag.

The FBI announced that close to a half a million computers have been infected after a joint agency task force conducted a raid back in November.
Six members of a computer hacking gang in Estonia were apprehended and charged with bagging millions of dollars in affiliation and referral fees by illegally re-routing computer users to other servers that were under their control.
