    We just learned that the FBI might shut off the internet for millions of people in an effort to rid the country's Internet infrastructure of the DNSChanger Trojan. You should really check if you're infected-here's how.

    In the possible-but-unlikely event that the FBI decides to cut off the internet to infected systems on March 8th, you don't want to get left in the dark. A simple check to see if your computer has the DNSChanger Trojan is very straightforward. Basically, you want to check your DNS connection against those known to be used by the trojan. If you point your browser to dns-ok.us, the website will run a quick check to see if you're all right.

    Interesting article. I doubt the FBI is cutting off the Internet for them. It's just that the rogue DNS server their infected computer points to (which was replaced with a legit one) is going dark on March 8th.
