Facebook and Google Notification about DNSChanger Trojan

Posted by Muhammed Posted on Monday, June 11, 2012

Going forward Facebook will notify users who have DNSChanger malware on their computer. You will receive an alert from Facebook says "Your computer or network might be infected" while browsing on Facebook if your computer is infected with this Trojan.

When a user browses to Facebook from a DNSChanger-infected computer, the social networking giant will display an alert with a link to the DNSChanger Working Group’s website which contains information about the malware and instructions on cleaning up the infection.

Google announced a similar plan back on May and displays alerts to victims through its search pages. 

Do I need to worry about this message?

Like in my previous post this news is spreading across the world that they will lose the Internet access on July 9th who hasn’t taken steps to make sure their systems are not infected with DNS changer Trojan. Click here and check yourself whether your computer is infected or not.
