Over 100 Thousand Computers May Lose Broadband Connection

Over 100 Thousand Computers May Lose Broadband Connection

The police of the United States predict that over 100 thousand computers will lose their broadband connection when the Feds pull the plug on servers controlling DNSchanger.

According to the reports, on July 9, the Feds will disable rogue DNS servers seized late in 2011. The FBI believes that by then there will be 100 thousand P?s left in the botnet. One may think that this figure is too large, but it turns out that it’s just 1/3 of the 350,000 to 400,000 people who, according to the FBI, still have the DNSChanger malware on their modems or Windows PCs. Security experts confirm that it is also a fraction of the 4,000,000 users who were infected at the height of the Estonian scam.

Meanwhile, 6 Estonian citizens have been arrested under suspicions of distributing the malware. They are now subject to extradition procedures to face charges in the US. The police gained interim control of the rogue DNS servers, but the Feds expect to take them offline on July 9, after a 4-month court ordered extension of the program expires.

Paul Vixie, the representative of the Internet Systems Consortium, notified AusCERT 2012 attendees that ISPs would have to rush new modems to people who think they might still have the malware present on their devices. The matter is that the scammers scripted the Internet interface and changed the DNS settings in the CPE of the modem, so it is now very difficult to get the modems re-programmed.

In other words, more than 100,000 PCs may lose Internet connection in a couple months. Some subscribers who suspect that they may still have malware in question might want to solve the problem before the 9th of July.

hrg avatar@drslimshady you are a dumb mofo,i really hope you live in america so you can go buy a gun and shoot yourself in the woods..
This is the first time in ages we get some news that the Americans are actually doing something constructive with there cyber security departments, did you just read the title (more likely someone read it for you)and comment, please stop being such a dumb noob..

@rossgee1 the whole point of the scam was to target westerners, an what kinda justice they gonna get there, a few of the techys spend life in some hole and the main boss's pay off and start again.
If a country can't police there own then it's up to the victims to get justice

Best wishes
EVERYONE WHO IS NOT RETARDED..

scaryjerry666 avatar@ hrg, I couldn't agree with you more. If they don't want to protect their own computers and avoid other from being infected, then they should be removed for their own ignorance.

jibbajabba avatarDo people even read the articles? It's not about the FBI disconnecting people's broadband just for fun. These people are too stupid to protect themselves so the government has to step in to stop them infecting other computers or being remote controlled in to attacking internet targets. These morons don't deserve computers or broadband.

Big_A_Little_A avatarMean while back at the FBI ranch they have been allocated $54 million by a Senate committee last month for use in the newly formed secretive surveillance unit DCAC (Domestic Communications Assistance Center)unit with an ambitious goal: to invent technology that will let police more readily eavesdrop on Internet and wireless communications. And what are they spending some of the money on?? New FBI remotely-installed spyware!! So who will they be listening to and checking up on??
