DNSChanger Eliminated

Today, the US Government shutted down the substituted resolvers for the DNSChanger malware.  More than 0.3 million users can not access the Internet permanently if they do not clear the malware.  In Hong Kong, it is estimated 800 users will suffer.   Actually, the number of infected PCs was about 4 million in last November and it was the efforts of CERTs and ISPs worldwide to take back 3.7 million infected PCs.

A test tool is available at  http://www.dns-ok.us/.  If a host is infected, the background color will be red.
