Dear Computer Lady,
Since you are my most trusted voice in the internet wilderness would you please give your opinion on the DNS Changer malware?
Thank you, Regina
Several people have asked me about this recently, so I figured that a little research was in order.
I started out by visiting Snopes.com. Snopes is a website that I visit quite often, usually to investigate an email or facebook post that has gone viral. If this were a hoax, Snopes would let me know.
I found that Snopes does not have this listed as a hoax, instead they have a link to a PC magazine article, which in turn links to the site you have mentioned.
For those of you who want to read the article, it is located here:
After you read the article, be sure to follow the link and check your computer.
I have noticed that there are a lot of news articles about this with frightening headlines that claim the internet will be broken. Don’t worry, the internet will not be compromised. Only the computers that are still infected by the hackers who have since been arrested.
It’s Your Turn: What do you think?
