Domain Name Servers now Dead Name Servers
A few months back we had blogged about how the FBI had extended the deadline for turning off the rogue DNS servers it had taken control of. Lo and behold! that dead line has finally arrived.
Given the amount of grace period that was provided before putting these servers down, one would assume that the infected PCs would have been cleaned up by now. However, according to the DNS Changer Working Group, a worrying number of PCs still have their DNS entries pointing to the malicious servers.
Our customers need not worry though, for K7 products already have the functionality to diagnose these rogue DNS IP addresses, and replace them with known good ones.
