Aluereon Virus – Kent Based IT Support

Posted by:

There is a possibility that on Monday, there could be a spate of computers infected by the Aluereon Virus.  Computers may have become affected over previous months, however,  problems may only become apparent now that the F.B.I is switching off their safety net.

The Daily Mail Reported: -

If you have a virus on your machine, there is a very real risk you will get kicked off the internet on Monday.

Web-users are being warned to ensure their computers are clear of the nasty ‘Alureon/DNS Changer bot’.

This piece of software found its way onto hundreds of thousands of computers worldwide late last year. The software was designed to re-direct you away from trusted websites, towards spoof websites in a bid to steal financial and personal information.

When the attack was noticed, the FBI took the unusual step of setting up a ‘safety-net’, routing infected machines through their server to stop the ‘spoof’ attacks.

But these servers will be taken down on Monday, and when this happens, people still infected are likely to lose their internet connection without warning.

DaVinci Systems have already successfully dealt with numerous clients infected by the Aluereon Virus, and are on Standby on Monday to help deal with any issues encountered by either our existing or any new clients.
