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.
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.
