FBI – Check to See if Your Computer is Using Rogue DNS

UNITED STATES v. VLADIMIR TSASTSIN, ET AL.

The FBI is seeking information from individuals, corporate entities, and Internet Services Providers who believe that they have been victimized by malicious software (“malware”) related to the defendants. This malware modifies a computer’s Domain Name Service (DNS) settings and thereby directs the computers to receive potentially improper results from rogue DNS servers hosted by the defendants.

If you believe you have been victimized in this case, please type your DNS information into the search box below.

Information on how to determine your DNS settings, along with other technical details about DNSChanger, can be found by using the following link:

You can also test to see if you are affected by visiting the following DNSChanger Check-Up site below. If this Check-Up site indicates that you are affected by DNSChanger, then visit http://www.dcwg.org/cleanup.html for information on how to address this problem or contact Tech Help LA.
