Australian DNS Warning

This morning I was interviewed on Network Ten Australia about the ACMA media release: "Is your computer infected with DNSChanger?" (17/2012), 29 March 2012. This refers to a warning from the FBI Learn about DNSChanger malware and how it can affect your computer. The FBI have put in a temporary fix, but this is due to expire 9 July 2012, thus the need for urgency. The Australian government has provided a DNSChanger Diagnostic to check if DNS service has been rerouted. But if your ISP has redirected the redirection, the check will give a false negative.

ps: As I said when interviewed by Channel 10 about it this morning, "Don't Panic". ;-)
