DNS Check Tools

Time is running out! It’s VERY important to make sure your computers aren’t infected with the DNSChanger malware before the government shuts down the temporary servers.

It’s easy to check and it only takes a few seconds. There are plenty of utilities available, and while The DNSChanger Working Group has an extensive list of sites which will check for problems, F-Secure Labs also has something to offer: DNS Check.

It’s a script-based tool that can be used to reset problematic DNS settings.

DNS Check will scan to determine if the computer’s DNS is configured to use the botnet’s servers (now the FBI’s) and can be used to reset default settings to DHCP, OpenDNS, or Google DNS.
