For those of you that haven’t already heard about it, June 9th at 12:01 AM is when the DNSes containing malware will be taken offline — this means that if your computer or wireless connection has been infiltrated by the infamous DNS Changer, you won’t be able to get back online after that point unless you contact your internet service provider (ISP) and take the necessary steps in ridding yourselves of this malware. If you live in the United States, checking to see if your computer has been infiltrated by it as easy as going to DNS Changer Check-Up — if you see a green background near the circle that says IP on that page, your computer likely hasn’t been infected by it. But there are other ways to check!
If you have Windows, bring up your command prompt and put the command “ipconfig /all” in… without the quotation marks, of course. Scroll until you see “DNS Servers:” — after that should be something that looks like an IP address. If the number that comes up after that is in these ranges, you’re likely infected. DNS Changer can change the DNS look-up for your router if it’s unsecured or if you didn’t change at least the password when installing it.
