I just came across this warning from one of the technical sites that I subscribe to and thought that I should pass it on to the community. To check if you have the virus just follow the link to http://dcwg.org and follow the instruction. The fix is also on this site, or they can call the tech who takes care of their machine to take care of it.

Happy Friday! I hope this newsletter finds everyone well. This week’s topic from Barbara questions the validity of the DNSChanger malware alert circulating around the Web that explains if this virus is not taken care of by July 9, those whose systems are infected will lose their Internet connection.
Well Barbara, and to all you skeptics of this news, it is in fact a true alert and I don’t blame you one bit for questioning its validity. There are so many scams out there, who knows what to believe nowadays? But rest assured, this time it’s for real! So for those who just caught wind of this news or have a hard time believing this, pay attention as currently there are still hundreds of thousands of machines still infected with this malware. You’ll want to read up and make sure yours is not one of them.
So you ask, how do I go about knowing if my machine is infected with this virus? And if I’m infected how do I get rid of it? Well, no worries, many of our members have chimed in on this week’s discussion to answer Barbara’s questions. If you read through and visit some of the sites suggested like http://dcwg.org, and follow their directions, you’ll learn how this virus came about. You’ll find out why if not treated you’ll lose your Internet access in July, and how you can fix it if you are. And if your machine isn’t infected, you have nothing to worry about!
Thanks to all the members who contributed. Take care everyone and be safe!
