The DNSChanger Virus – The Real 411 (NOT “Doomsday”)
There has been much hype about a virus in the news lately that, frankly, shows (some of) the mainstream media for what they are (clueless ambulance-chasing fearmongers?). Today, Woody Leonhard published a detailed article that tells the real deal about “DNSChanger”, and he says it much better than I would.. ‘cuz I am a bit angry, and might not keep a civil tongue.
“DNSChanger virus spells ‘Internet Doomsday’ … The end is nigh, according to the FBI … ‘Internet doomsday’ will strike us all on July 9 …
That’s what a couple of popular websites had to say about the DNSChanger virus. What a crock!
