Not only is it not really a big deal, it's even less of one since the loss of Internet would effectively stop any malware from spreading. Sort of the opposite effect they would like to go for I'd think when designing the thing.

Even if infected, it's nothing a flash drive, and a few good programs like tdsskiller, etc. won't clean up in a hurry.

But honestly - if we get computers that have malware, the longer they are in use, the better it is to just rebuild the thing. If someone had malware for that long.. just rebuild the computers, not worth trying to clean up the mess. Nothing like trying to hunt down services turned off, corrupt dlls, IE and Firefox settings that have been changed, none of which are fixed by anti virus software in most cases.

Sure, I will go right to the FBI and push a button there


Thanks, but no thanks. I wouldn't put it past them to be installing their own botnets along with the check or some other such underhanded stuff

For those who want to check manually you can open a command prompt window Run>Cmd.exe and type in ipconfig/all It will then tell you the current ip config for all servers on your machine. The rouge server ranges are noted here: www.arxnetworks.com...

If you are infected you would be best off saving your data to a thumbdrive and nuking the HDD from a CD boot and reinstalling windows as the target malware is not going to be easily removed.

I think this is probably a black op imho since they are more or less trying to get you to go to the gov servers. they may be exploiting a rootkit to put DDoS software on your computer to attack Iran before the physical attack starts. Something is mighty fishy going on here.

310 million people don't have the internet in USA. So 64,000 is alot actually doesnt matter if you have 5 million users and 64,000 are infected....none should be infected.

Nobody is even slightly suspicious of that "dns-ok.us" website?

It's just a normal image which can have a trojan hooked into it.

Imo it's a honeypot and we are all stupid bees. (yes i opened it myself, naive as i was thinking it might actually scan something)

I will take my chances. Just remember that nearly every link you posted is a link I would NEVER go to.

I am not saying this is a way to get people to log on to a site that will place tracking software on their computer or something, but with recent developments and the new propaganda bill enacted I am very weary of potential scams and this has all the makings of one.

Heh, some folks are worried that the feds are gonna get inside their putes... The feds have already got inside our putes and can do so at will.

Yes because the "feds" have nothing better to do then check millions of computers every day

Don't be paranoid, it's not good for your health and get a grip on reality. Because IF the "feds" could get onto every PC that easily, as you believe, they would catch paedophiles left and right every day. They would raid houses like crazy for people having "how to build a bomb" pdfs on their PC. They would catch pirates easiert.
It's not happening, because they don't have the ability to just log onto every PC, check the hard drives and whatnot.

I mean here in Germany was a debate bout a "government trojan" to be installed on "suspicious PCs", it caused a huge debate, with half the government being against it and it the end it was deemed illegal.

I doubt that much will happen on Monday. It's another panic attack, like with all those trojans and viruses before. In the end only Computers from Dummies who have no clue about it, were infected. As long as you keep your Computer secure and use Anti-Virus, Anti-Malware programs and stuff like Hijack This, nothing bad will happen.

Completely agree about Norton being 100% crap.

I personally use CCleaner which is free and even has an index.dat eraser.... it used to be called CrapCleaner


PS: I went to Malawarebytes site to download and am not getting anywhere. I click download and it keeps pushing my back to the previous page.
Anyone else having this problem??

I clicked quarantine. Everything is working
fine - suppose I should clean up my PC.

I read an article that said that if people pay for a virus protection service...they should be ok. I just checked mine and everything is secure. The article said that people who rely on (free protection services) may have problems.

I have AVG free protection and so far its worked well,
hope it continues to. Actually I think it works better
than some protection I have paid for in the past.

People actually went and checked to see if they had malware, from a government site???
Uuuuh, forgive me for being so stupid...but, even if you caught a virus....all you have to do...is save your files...and reinstall windows. Just make sure you format your drive a few times...and tah-daaaaaah...your system is like new again.
