I haven’t heard a peep out of my internet provider or anti virus service.
Thought it said Hundreds of thousands may lose Interest in July
Kind of there, myself.
Might want to join this thread, for some insights & comments:
Here is an instant check:
If you see green, you are good. Red background, not so good.
"I hear there is some Internet out Californee way."
Reminds me of the Y2K scare/scam/BS REdux
Or is it just me?
I think it’s hundreds of billions.
“The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help.’”
A security partner that just registered their domain name on GoDaddy a few months ago? No thanks.

The bad guys behind DNS Changer were caught last November, but because millions of infected PCs were still being directed to the malicious DNS Servers, a court ordered that a private company take over those servers in order to give victims time to clean up their infected machines and reset their DNS settings to legitimate providers. Originally, the DNS Changer servers were to be taken down last March, but because of the number of users still infected, a delay was granted until July.
So, if you have a DNS Changer infection that is still unresolved, you may find that you will be unable to reach any websites after the servers are no longer operational on July 9. For more background on this, see Brian Krebs’ blog here:
