Tech Times state;

MUST READ: July 9th - Will it be Doom's Day for Internet???
Can u imagine a day without using internet????

Well, on July 9th you will be in that position if FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation, USA) shuts down the internet as planned.

For the ones who doesn't know what exactly happened.... Lets have a small flashback.....

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
November 9th 2011
FBI arrested 6 hijackers, who were responsible for spreading a virus called the DNS Changer which affected nearly 4 Million computers in more than 100 countries.

DNS means Domain Name System, which is a servcie which converts the website's names into numeric address called the IP address.
So, if one could hijack your DNS server, they can control what sites you visit on the internet.
To be simple, the hijackers can take you to any website irrespective of the address you type in the browser.
So, these criminals used a malware to change the ISP's good DNS with the Bad DNS servers operated by them.

FBI cracked this hijack and arrested them. Also they installed Emergency Surrogate Servers to support the ISPs and advised the ISPs to reformat their servers to remove the malware.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now...Coming to present day situation....

The Surrogate Servers installed by the FBI were to be used only for 120days, which is till March 8th. Then the ISPs requested an extension of the Surrogate Servers until june, stating that it is difficult to backup their entire server to format it. The Federal Court ordered FBI to support ISPs for another 120 days, which is until July 8th. If FBI shuts down their servers on july 9th, as planned, many ISPs would go offline, hence leaving us without internet. It should be noted that the infected computers include many Fortune 500 companies, so they will go offline too.

OFFICIAL UPDATE ON FBI WEBSITE
To assist victims affected by the DNSChanger malicious software, the FBI obtained a court order authorizing the Internet Systems Consortium (ISC) to deploy and maintain temporary clean DNS servers. This solution is temporary, providing additional time for victims to clean affected computers and restore their normal DNS settings. The clean DNS servers will be turned off on July 9, 2012, and computers still impacted by DNSChanger may lose Internet connectivity at that time.


Also, make sure your computer is not affected by the malware by going to the FBI's IP Check page and checking your computer.

9th July Internet Doom Day, Malware Attack – Protect your System

Yes, 9th July is the Internet Doom Day as DNSchanger malware is going to attack in probably less than 24 hours. DNSChanger Malware is going to affect all the system in the world. More than one in 10 Fortune 500 companies still have computers infected with DNSChanger malware, according to estimates by Internet security firm IID.

History of DNSChanger Malware

DNSchanger is a malware discovered in 2007 which went on to infect millions of computer systems worldwide. It was released by cybercriminals to take control of your web server. The Malware intercepts websites visited by your web browser and redirect you to other sites they had prepared, so you will then use the server under their control. Once you are infected, you are set to use only their server every time you go online. This DNS server will alter every user searches, giving fake and malicious answers as well as promoting fake and dangerous products. It is showing users the altered version of the Internet.

The main idea of this server is so they can easily push web ads to you, earning themselves millions of dollars. You can still surf the Internet like normal if the server keeps running.

How to Find Out If Your System Is Infected

Firstly, you must find out if your system is among the still affected 277,000 systems. Since May 2012, Google has taken the initiative to inform you if they found the DNSChanger Malware in your system, by giving you an alert on their website. When you see the alert, click on the link ‘Learn how to remove this software’ and Google will guide you on the steps to remove the malware.

If you don’t see the warning on Google’s site, you can also visit DCWG’s official website to find out if your system is one of the victim, and if it is, follow the guide to removing it.

Alternatively, There’s action you may need to take even if you’ve checked and your computer is free of the virus. First, go to the FBI site where they check your computer automatically to make sure it doesn’t have the virus itself.

How To Remove DNSChanger Malware


If your have been affected by the DNSChanger Malware, you need to fix your computer system. The only way researchers would suggest to fix your computer is to reformat your hard drive and reinstall the Operating System from scratch. Reverting your OS to a prior backup is not enough since the malware will be able to reclaim your system.

As suggested by DCWG, there are few steps to follow if you are infected:

1. Backup all your important files.

2. Follow the self-help guide as provided by the ‘free tools’ in the list below.

3. Once your computer is clean, follow instructions to ensure your DNS settings are correct.

4. After fixing your computer, make sure your router (if you are using) use the DNS settings provided by the ISP.

5. Changing DNS is only one of the functions of the malware kit. The malware could have captured some of your important information so it is a good idea to check your bank statements and credit reports as well as to take precaution by changing your passwords on any online accounts.

There are a number of free tools with self-help guides available to help you remove the DNSChanger and related threats;

Hitman Pro (32bit and 64 bit versions)
Kaspersky Labs TDSSKiller
Microsoft Windows Defender Offline
Microsoft Safety Scanner
Norton Power Eraser
Trend Micro Housecall
MacScan
Avira

How To Protect Yourself


To learn how to protect yourself from malware infections check out the following web references which guide you in protecting yourself from DNSChanger and many other Malware.

FBI’s How To Protect Your Computer
Microsoft’s Understanding Security And Safer Computing

The virus was release on November 9th, 2011. It was broadcasted on the news earlier stating that it would steal your information. If you're using a computer that was still active around that date, be cautious on the sites you visit and make sure to update your Anti-Virus definitions. New Computers, you have a less likely chance of getting the virus, but update your Anti-Virus definitions anyway. Be cautious on what you do. Don't let sites leave you logged in. Use CCleaner when you're done with your browser to clear all the sites, history, information logged into your browser. This will prevent Identity Theft and getting hacked. ie; GMS, Bank Accounts, Gaming Accounts, Facebook, etc.
