How to check if your PC is infected with DNSChanger virus
Zeebiz Bureau

New Delhi: Thousands of computers in India, which host a malicious virus DNSChanger, may lose Internet access today.

DNSChanger is a malware computer programme that redirects Internet traffic to fake websites.

To check whether your computer is infected with the deadly virus, the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has launched a website where users can check their PC status.

A “green” background in the image given above means that your computer is safe while a “red” background means that your system has been infected by the virus and it needs to be fixed.

Reportedly, DNSChanger will only attack Windows users. So, Apple and other operating system users can relax.

If you are using a rogue server you can use this website to check the status of your system. All you need to do is find the IP address of your system and enter it on the space which says ‘check your DNS’. This will help you to see the virus status.

The virus affected machines are likely to lose web access as FBI will shut down servers associated with the DNSChanger malware today. As a result, it is likely that all computers infected with this threat will no longer be able to access the Internet.
