Government To Shut Down Internet on Thursday, March 8, 2012?
On July 9th 2012, The Internet ‘Blackout’ Looms:
Thousands of Users Will Lose Their Internet Access,
As The U.S. FBI, Shuts-Down Main-Line Servers,
Infected With The “DNSchanger” Trojan
You may have heard internet rumors circulating,
that the FBI, will shut down the Internet on March 8th, 2012 …
And (yet) AGAIN, On July 9th, 2012.
Is This True, — or Not?
Well, Both. … (It Depends).
If your computer IS INFECTED with the trojan; “DNS Changer,”
then you will experience an Internet “shut down.”
If your computer is CLEAN, you will not notice any change.
(except perhaps, faster speeds!)
What IS This “DNSChanger” Trojan Anyway?
“DNS Changer,” is a Trojan, that changes the infected computer system’s DNS (Domain Name Server) settings, so to divert web traffic, to unsolicited, (and potentially, illegal websites). The trojan’s usually a small file (about 1.5 kilobytes) that’s designed to change the ‘NameServer’ Registry key value, to a custom IP address. This IP address, is usually encrypted in the body of the trojan. As a result of this change, a victim’s machine, will contact the newly assigned DNS server, to resolve names of different webservers. I realize this all sounds complicated, (and it is). The important thing is, … that you remove it from your computer.
