Monday July 9, Virus Malware computers infected disconnected

The temporary Internet system they set up, however, will be shut down at 12:01 a.m. EDT (0401 GMT) Monday, July 9.

To check whether a computer is infected, users can visit a website run by the group brought in by the FBI:

Monday thousand of computers will be disconnected on the net, as thousands of computers are still infected with the malware created by hackers last year, dubbed the “Domain Changer”.

Those computers are connected to the servers and on Monday the FBI who seized the server will disconnect the malicious server and everyone who is infected will lose the internet service.

What is the DNS Changer Malware?

On November 8, the FBI, the NASA-OIG and Estonian police arrested several cyber criminals in “Operation Ghost Click”. The criminals operated under the company name “Rove Digital”, and distributed DNS changing viruses, variously known as TDSS, Alureon, TidServ and TDL4 viruses. You can read more about the arrest of the Rove Digital principals here, and in the FBI Press Release.
