Worry about July 9, 2012? Check your DNS.

The simplest solution. Visit http://www.dns-ok.us and if you see a green background, you are ok. If the background is red, you might be in trouble.

Want to do the check manually? Do this

Open a command window and at the prompt, type or paste:

ipconfig/allcompartments/all

The output will probably be very long. Look for the IPv4 information under “Ethernet adapter…” Then Look for the “DNS Servers line, and write down these numbers. “Compare them with the IP numbers of the malicious Rove DNS changer listed in http://www.dcwg.org/detect/checking-windows-7-for-infections/

If a match, you might be in trouble.
