When I first heard of this DNSchanger that can "kill" your internet connection on June 9, 2012 (tomorrow) I was suspicious. And of course, I wasn't the only one.
Stupidly I used the government website to run a check to see if my computer was infected. According to the site, I was in the green, meaning most likely not infected, but not 100% positive.
But I wanted to double check so I followed the step-by-step instructions to check in my command window. Clean there too.
My suggestion to anyone reading this is to do a manual check and not run the government check. The latter took less than two seconds but in that short time, how do I know they didn't stealthily add something to my computer to spy on me. I know, I know. They already to spy on me.
You might ask: why would they go through the trouble of trying to trick people into clicking "Detect" to run a diagnostic test on their site?
Well, if we find out that they did put something fishy onto our computers we ca rise up and complain and their rebuttal would be: "Oh, but you came onto our site and clicked on our diagnostic test and the small print says...."
You see where I'm going with this? Just the fact that you used their website will be like giving them permission to do as they please with your hard drive.
I feel like a fool for running the test. My advice is so check manually.
I also remember watching Alex Jones' show many months ago and he said on July 12, 2012 the government is going to have a crack down on persons with illegal material* on their hard drive. I mean, look at that dates! The 9th and the 12th. I can't help but think, if this is true, it is somehow connected with this virus. Just think of the hundreds of thousands of people who probably have at least one file on their computer that they obtained illegally, some even unknowingly.
*illegally downloaded music, movies, books, etc.
PS: I'm not going to post the link to the government site on here. I don't want anyone clicking on it from here and I don't want them connected to my blog. Please look at the links below or do a quick search on the net on how to manually check if you have the DNSchanger virus.
