    DNSChanger virus may cut your internet on July 9th!

    Hey guys, just wanted to make sure everyone is aware of this as soon as possible.
    Basically this trojan software has infected a lare number of networks and changed their DNS settings. You need to make sure your DNS settings are legitimate so your internet doesn't get shut down July 9th.

    Heard about this earlier today. According to some dudes you can check if you have it by going here.

    If that is legit, then I am not infected with it.

    Not positive, but it couldn't hurt to check right? Took me a few minutes, no malware for me

    According to Ryan's thingy I'm green, so I won't be worrying too much about this.
