Malware internet meltdown a bust as feared DNS Changer virus fizzles on ’doomsday’
2012-07-09 0:00

From: DailyMail.co.uk

The so-called Internet doomsday virus with the potential to black out tens of thousands of computers worldwide appeared to pose no major problems Monday in the first hours after a fix expired.

Security firms reported no significant outages linked to the DNS Changer virus, as many Internet service providers have either implemented a fix or contacted customers with steps to clean their computers.



The problem stems from malware known as DNS Changer, which was created by a cybercriminals to redirect Internet traffic by hijacking the domain name systems (DNS) of Web browsers.

On Monday, temporary servers set up by the FBI to direct Internet traffic normally, even for infected computers, were shut down.

But security specialists said most Internet users and providers have had time to work around or fix the problem.

‘Many global operators are keeping their DNS Changer victims online, even after FBI stopped. We do not expect much noise about this today,’ said Mikko Hypponen, chief research officer at the Finland-based firm F-Secure, in a Twitter message.

Johannes Ullrich of the SANS Security Institute said that for computers running Windows, the computer ‘may actually revert to the default settings once the DNS server is turned off.’

He added, that ‘if you used the bad DNS server, chances are that various entities tried to notify you. Google for example should have shown you a banner.’

Additionally, Ullrich said the malware is ‘old enough where antivirus, if you run any, should have signatures for it.’

DNSChanger is False Flag Excuse for FBI to Shut Out Internet Users

Today The Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) will pull the plug on the Domain Name System (DNS) because of DNS Changer malware that has been used as a safety net for servers infected by a virus that redirects users to a bogus DNS server.

On July 9th, Internet users will be able to access the Internet if your computer is not infected.

The FBI wants everyone to check their computer by going to the website for the DNSChanger Working Group. When you visit this site, if your computer is “ok”, you will see a “green square”.

When you go to this website to have your computer checked for DNSChanger, you are essentially giving the FBI the ok to allow your ISP and computer to be surveilled.

If you use Firefox or Microsoft Internet Explorer, you are fine. However, users of Google Chrome and Apple’s Safari may experience a problem being validated.

The FBI claims that they have been “propping up the Internet” for last few months in an effort combat the DNSChanger virus, however they can no longer do so effectively.


In this admission, the FBI is saying that the Internet is essentially being syphoned through the FBI; this includes all user activity on the Internet. All of our digital communications are going through the US government’s databases and being monitored under the guise of searching for the elusive DNSChanger malware.

The issue of hacktivists and their threat to the Internet, national security and digital information flow is a ruse designed to fool the American public into thinking that on the other side of their computer screen lurks a Bogeyman ready to pounce.

In reality it is the US government and their false flags that we should all be vigilantly aware of so that we can recognize when Big Brother is trying to usurp our digital rights.
