+ - DNS Changer: We're Dealing With Malware in The Wrong Way - Paul Vixie->

Submitted by AlistairCharlton
AlistairCharlton (2525880) writes "Victims of the DNS Changer malware think they have better things to do than check their internet security, and as a digital society we're dealing with malware in completely the wrong way.

These are the thoughts of Paul Vixie who worked with the FBI in intercepting servers used by a gang of Estonian hackers who made millions of dollars from redirecting internet users away from the websites they requested, directing them to advertisements instead."
