FBI Needs Help

The FBI needs help prosecuting Vladimir Tsastsin. Just over a year ago Tsastsin and six of his cohorts were arrested in Estonia charged with running a click fraud scheme that infected more than four million computers in over 100 countries — an estimated 500,000 of those PCs in the United States. 

The defendants are suspected of using the malware DNS Changer to hijack computers in order to redirect browsers to ads that generated pay-per-click revenue, thus illegally earning the defendants more than $14 million through click hijacking and advertisement replacement fraud.

DNS Changer hijacks the domain name system (DNS) settings on a computer. Specifically the malware changes which DNS server a computer is set to use. DNS servers translate internet addresses like FBI.gov into an IP address. DNS Changer changes a computer’s settings to point to DNS servers controlled by Tsastsin’s crew – Rove Digital. This allowed the crooks to redirect any part of a browser session on an infected computer.

The FBI is seeking information from any persons or entities who believe that they have been victims of this malware. The FBI is offering tools to help you determine of you are infected. If you have been infected with DNS Changer the FBI has instructions to fix your computer

Read my book to learn how to protect yourself from being victimized by malware.
