July 9 could be 'Internet doomsday' for some (so check your PC or Mac)

How can you detect if your computer has been violated and infected with DNS Changer?

July 9 might be "Internet doomsday" for PC and Mac users who haven't taken steps to make sure their systems are not infected with what's being called DNSChanger malware.

Let's back up a minute to give you some quick background. Last fall, theFBI arrested six Estonian nationals who were charged with using malware and rogue DNS servers to hijack millions of computers worldwide.
