Why you don’t have internet after 9th of July 2012?

Well, this does not happen to everyone who uses the internet but only to certain people.

If you happen to lost your internet coincidentally after the 9th of July 2012, it is very likely that your computer is hit with the DNSChanger malware.

Take out your smartphone, tablet or whatever that can go to the internet and try to browse any website. If you are not able to surf from there, chances that you are safe is pretty high because it might be your ISP that is down. Give a call to them to check that out.

However, if your other internet-enabled device can surf to the internet, very high chance that your computer is infected.

So, what can you do?

If you are infected just download the Malwarebytes anti-malware to remove the trojan. From time to time if you want to learn more about the DNSChanger Malware, just head over to that page.

Happy browsing after this!

    Hi Alan, I’ve used some other tools to check my computer for the DNS Changer Malware and the results are negative. But there’s no such thing as “too safe” yea?

    Hi Alan, I just want to make it clear. So there is a chance that our ISP is affected by the malware? I thought that only individuals can be affected by this malware. Thanks for the info and thanks for sharing the link of the anti-malware.

    Thanks a lot for the heads up. Good thing is that I already have Malwarebytes on my computer. Hope it will prevent the DNS changer malware from affecting my computer.
