A disturbing Ministry of Trade report circulating in the Kremlin today is raising serious concerns over the United States plan to shut down significant parts of the Internet on 8 March in a move many Russian experts warn could be a prelude to massive attacks against the growing number of dissidents in that country.
According to this report, The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) will unplug on 8 March the Domain Name System (DNS) servers it
set up to replace rogue DNS servers that sent victims to malicious sites. A report on Infoworld said the removal of this temporary fix may affect “a substantial number” of users, as half of Fortune 500 companies and US government agencies are infected with the malware, not to mention tens-of-millions of privately owned American computers.
DNS Changer Eyechart ~ Checking Using A Browser
It is also possible to use a browser to check whether you're using the Rove Digital DNS servers.
Using a browser, open up dns-ok.us
These web sites provide information, and generally display either a warning (often a red color theme) if you're using Rove Digital DNS resolvers, or an "ok" sign (often with a green color theme) if you're not infected.
Note: Using a browser is the least accurate way to check. It may not give accurate results, if your ISP is directirecting your DNS traffic. In such a case, you could see a 'green' page, even though you have an infection. In any event, a 'red' page is always an accurate sign of an infection.
