On March 8, 2012, for millions around the world Internet will be forcibly shut down! This comes as a consequence of a virus that got so big that it infected millions of computers and is still looming large!
The case goes back to 2007 when six Estonian men got together to create a botnet to spread DNSChanger malware that tapped into fraudulent servers, directing Web users to unintended – and sometimes illegal – sites. As a part of Operation Ghost Click, FBI took control over the botnet's command and control servers in November, 2011 and replaced the rogue servers with temporary legitimate servers that were allowed to run only for 120 days – a deadline that is fast running out.
Before the panic attack sets in, it is wise to understand the ways in which you can deal with this issue. First, the DNSChanger malware must be removed from the system/s. One should take a back-up of all important data and then remove the malware using good Antivirus software.
