DNSChanger What?, Why, & How?
Many 2SS.Com clients use AdAware from Lavasoft in conjunction with other virus and spyware protection software from Norton or Microsoft. They make a good 'protection and recovery' combination that helps insure safe computing at home or at work and if you have them they are already protecting you from DNSChanger.
- DNSChanger arrives as a PC virus and then changes that
PC's DNS settings.
Here (at right)
Why? - The 'bad guys' that the FBI took down
brought in at
least 14 million dollars. It took a many many compromised computers to get all that money.
There were an estimated four
million computers affected in over 100 countries.
It's almost a guaranteed that most of the affected computers didn't have good,
updated, or even any security software. There are many technologies
to detect and prevent these threats, but
folks have to use them to actually be protected...
How? - You can undo the damage on an
unprotected PC by following a step-by-step procedure.
Here's a very creditable one...
A SPECIAL NOTE on
AntiVirus, Microsoft Security Essentials, and others, remain as the
PRIMARY protection program that looks for
viruses and major spyware on most PCs. In addition, the older versions of
9.1, 9.5, 9.6) are still updating and performing their function. So
there's no hurry to upgrade.
