At http://www.itpro.co.uk/638995/will-the-fbi-close-down-your-online-business-this-march/2, Davey Winder of ITPro has published a very disturbing article on the problems of being infected by DNSChanger. The effect of DNSChanger is to point infected machines at a substitute server. The original botnet has been taken down by the FBI and a benign DNS server substituted.  This allows infected machines to continue to access the internet, however the danger is that this substiute server will be turned off on 8th March. Should this switch-off occur then infected machines will be unable to access the internet.
