I personally have a problem with trusting the link mentioned.
Don't see why we can't deal with the problem ourselves?Computers fail everyday, it sucks yeah but we deal with it.
OK, ARE you infected? How can you tell?
You can't. Well, you can check your DNS settings, and your HOSTS file, but do you know how to do that? Does the average ma and pa oldperson know how
to do it?
All that website does check to see if you resolve a specific Qualified Domain Name to a Valid IP address. If you happen to return an IP address of a
known hacked DNS server, it will pop up with a "Oh you're infected!" message.
Then you can fix your problem. If you get an all clear, all good.
It is for people who don't understand the problem (most people here it seems) and who will go out and "buy a new PC rather than use an FBI web
But hey, no big deal, if you don't trust the internet, go buy a new pc
I might have to get into the business of selling cheap ones. Seems like
there is a very good market for it, and it is created out of no where.
Man, I cannot believe there is so much .. and it is, it is Ignorance.. about this issue...
funny stuff, glad it doesn't affect me, well, I mean, I am glad I am not so paranoid as to not know if it affects me... I understand how DNS works..
knowledge is power, so they say..
