I've been hearing/reading about this "DNS changer trojan" (something like this perhaps?) and been wondering if it's as dangerous and serious as some* say. Or could it be just more 2012-end-of-the-world crap and a self-fulfilling prophecy? Because there's a lot of "check if you're infected" warnings and I bet many idiots around the world will actually infect their machines while trying to install fake AVs to remove the supposed virus.

internet have a real attractive aspect, but finally, gives us nothing more than time waste. many more than 99% of the internet is pure crap.

Baddest virus you'll get this year.... Actually it's already infected thousands the US being the hardest hit. Just ask the FBI they know more about it.


The virus won't block you the FBI will since they'll be replacing/cleaning the infected DNS servers.
