5 free tools to remove Alureon DNSChanger malware

About a quarter-million computer users around the world are at risk of losing Internet access on Monday because of malicious software at the heart of a hacking scam that U.S. authorities shut down last November.

Some blogs and news reports hyped the risk of an outage, warning of a potential “blackout” and describing the Alureon malware as the “Internet Doomsday” virus.

Yet experts said only a tiny fraction of computer users were at risk, and Internet providers would be on call to quickly restore service. They said they considered the threat to be small compared with more-prevalent viruses such as Zeus and SpyEye, which infect millions of PCs and are used to commit financial fraud.

If it turns out the reason you are offline is indeed the Alureon malware and not a faulty Internet connection, here are 5 free tools that will remove the DNSChanger malware from your system. Download them on another PC and copy them to the infected PC using a USB drive or a CD.
