Description

DNSChanger is a trojan horse that arrived disguised as a video codec and changed the internet settings on infected computers. Once installed, the trojan horse redirected webpages in an attempt to steal login information for online banking sites. The malicious DNS servers used by the DNSChanger trojan horse were taken over by the FBI after the malware authors were arrested, and the malware network was officially shut down in July 2012.
