DNSChanger Malware Reminder

Machines infected with the DNSChanger virus will no longer be able to resolve web-site names such as or after July 9, 2012, and will appear to lose access to the Internet.

Steps to take:
1. Visit to see if your computer is infected. A green background means not infected.

2. If your computer is infected, visit for further information and instructions on how to clean your computer.

If you have any questions, please contact the ITSS TechCenter HelpDesk at 726-8856.
