re: Orphaned Bots Facing Internet Blackout

The DNSChanger Working Group has information on its website on how to test for and clean your machine of the malware, and ISPs are supposed to be reaching out to their customers.

re: Orphaned Bots Facing Internet Blackout
Security researchers and government worker bees-have no clue as to how people really use computers and this is why it's taking them much longer than planned to clean up. -Need proof? -Look at how easy it is to use internet security software.

They spent many years chasing this botnet down and then got "buck fever" and implemented to a very ineffective solution in a rush to publicly declare victory.

Now they face public ridicule as their remediation plan continues to fail miserably.

re: Orphaned Bots Facing Internet Blackout
Does anyone know why the "You are receiving this message because you are infected" message was rejected?- This looks like an opportunity to educate a captive audience on some basic computer security principals and provide a link so people and businesses can fix their PCs and access points.- These unpatched devices are targets for a new bot to move in and start the process over again.- Kicking the can down the road should not be an option.

Everything You Need to Know About DNS Attacks
It's important to understand DNS, potential attacks against it, and the tools and techniques required to defend DNS infrastructure. This report answers all the questions you were afraid to ask. Domain Name Service (DNS) is a critical part of any organization's digital infrastructure, but it's also one of the least understood. DNS is designed to be invisible to business professionals, IT stakeholders, and many security professionals, but DNS's threat surface is large and widely targeted. Attackers are causing a great deal of damage with an array of attacks such as denial of service, DNS cache poisoning, DNS hijackin, DNS tunneling, and DNS dangling. They are using DNS infrastructure to take control of inbound and outbound communications and preventing users from accessing the applications they are looking for. To stop attacks on DNS, security teams need to shore up the organization's security hygiene around DNS infrastructure, implement controls such as DNSSEC, and monitor DNS traffic
