Google and many other sources are giving lots of alerts about this day. It is about DNS changer malware. Hackers may try to attack your computer through DNS changer, and once you get caught you will not able to surf on the Internet. You have to clean your computer totally to get out of that problem. So be safe and stay alert. It is so important that even FBI got involved in this case. They have already captured few hackers related to it.

As per this, hackers can change your dns settings and change your ip address which isn’t set from your service provider. This can cause your many troubles.

Now as shown in image, select the Internet Protocol Version 4 and click on properties again. With this you will able to see ip address settings/ DNS setting of your connection, as shown in image.

Now mostly all internet connection has been set on Obtain an IP address automatically, so if your connection is set on this one also then you are on no risk. If it’s set to some manually ip address then your computer might be at risk. Then you need to check that your ip address is not in the list of those infected ip address.

This problem is surely serious. If by chance your computer gets infected then you need to format it completely. Otherwise it can be more risky to you.

To avoid it, first make sure that your computer is not infected with some malware. That’s the best thing to check first. If there is any then take necessary steps to remove them. After it, just check your DNS settings that you haven’t been infected like that.
