FBI DNS Changer
The FBI has not produced a new infection but got involved in dealing with the malware that goes by the name of FBI DNS Changer. The malware is known as able to cut off the Internet connection or to redirect the users to some malicious websites that might also infect computers with malware. FBI DNS Changer has to be deleted from the system at once after spotting the changes done in the system.
The infection changes DNS servers so that malicious websites instead of user-friendly pages are loaded. The original DNS servers are replaced with malicious DNS servers. It changes the IP address of the computers and redirects them to desired websites. In addition, FBI DNS Changer can affect other computer and, for example, a router or home gateway, on the SOHO network. Very often, when users get a new router, they do not change its default settings. It enables the infection to access the network and affect other devices.
The FBI explains that ““Criminals have learned that if they can control a user’s DNS servers, they can control what sites the user connects to on the Internet. By controlling DNS, a criminal can get an unsuspecting user to connect to a fraudulent website or to interfere with that user’s online web browsing.”
