Quick Heal would like to remind its users about the impending DNSChanger server shutdown on July 9th. If you have been following this piece of news, you will be aware that the shutdown deadline is now just two days away. People who still have this malware on their machine will not be able to access the Internet from July 9th onwards. There have been multiple warnings and notifications about this issue for a while now, but we have read reports that there are still around 250,000 infected machines all around the world. Quick Heal users need not worry though. Detection for this malware has been present for a while and our users are completely protected against this threat.
Machines that have this malware present on them could also be susceptible to other threats and infections. People who have ignored previous warnings will have to face up to a complete loss of web access now. We regret the inconvenience that will be caused to them, but it is certainly for the greater good. Please refer to our earlier post on DNSChanger for more information about the case.
