Protection against possible Internet Scam - DCWG
Posted 28 April 2012 - 05:44 PM
The DCWG was created to help remediate Rove Digital’s malicious DNS servers. The DCWG helps monitor DNS servers run by ISC, under court order, in the former Rove Digital colo space.
The DCWG is an ad hoc group of subject matter experts, and includes members from organizations such as Georgia Tech, Internet Systems Consortium, Mandiant, National Cyber-Forensics and Training Alliance, Neustar, Spamhaus, Team Cymru, Trend Micro, and the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
You can read more about the arrest of the Rove Digital principals here, and in the FBI Press Release. This page is hosted at the Georgia Institute of Technology, under a research grant provided by the Office of Naval Research.
You can check your own computer to make sure everything is alright, by clicking here: http://www.dcwg.org/ This marks one of the first times a world-wide effort has been mounted to keep the rest of us safe. I'm liking it. ... Mike

"When the user of an infected computer clicked on a search result link displayed through a search engine query, the Malware caused the computer to be re-routed to a different website. Instead of being brought to the website to which the user asked to go, the user was brought to a website designated by the defendants."
On top of it (that was going on in the same week) I have used a software called Austologics, a duplicate file finder. I did not notice at the time, but there was already a checked box to open it with "ask.com" which I had to get rid of after. That Austologics is from Australia (ausies).
