The possible Internet outage on 8th March is avoided as the federal judge has agreed to allow 120 days of extension for organisations and individuals to clean systems of the DNSChanger Trojan. This decision was taken late yesterday.
As the earlier 4 month deadline of 8th March arrived, it was observed that DNSChanger malware is still running on thousands of computers in several companies. To avoid a major problem afflicting those still infected, the judge in the Federal Court for the Southern District of New York granted a request to extend the deadline for shutting off servers that had been keeping infected computers connected to the Internet.
