Internet Doomsday - Will your computer get doomed too?

I thought I must talk about the DNS changer virus, which is going to be a huge threat to all us internet users in near future, though it is not about beauty, nails or anything...

FBI update
"Update on March 12, 2012: To assist victims affected by the DNSChanger malicious software, the FBI obtained a court order authorizing the Internet Systems Consortium (ISC) to deploy and maintain temporary clean DNS servers. This solution is temporary, providing additional time for victims to clean affected computers and restore their normal DNS settings. The clean DNS servers will be turned off on July 9, 2012, and computers still impacted by DNSChanger may lose Internet connectivity at that time."

"DNS (domain name service) changer virus, redirects you to a criminal site without your knowledge. Mac and widows are more capable to get affected by this virus and If your computer is infected, you will be disconnected from the internet on                9 July 2012

Go to this site to check if your computer is affected or not -    http://www.dns-ok.us/

If it is green, your computer is not affected by the virus and if it is red, You MUST disinfect your computer before 9 JULY or you will be disconnected from the internet.

I  hope you will find this post helpful as it is going to be a major threat to us ....
