Google has acquired free malware scanner VirusTotal for an undisclosed sum. The site runs submitted files through 44 different malware scanners and reports new findings to anti-virus software companies.
We have been advising our customers and friends to make sure they check their computers for the DNS Changer malware. The news have run stories about it over the last few days and we are getting calls about how to check whether one’s computer is infected.
The easiest way to check is to simply go to http://www.dns-ok.us/ If you see a GREEN box you are clear. If you see RED you will need to remove the malicious program from your system if you don’t want to be without internet starting Monday July 9th.
You can check out one of many stories here. It includes a video demonstrating the checker above.
Give it a try and be safe!
