DNSChanger victims would get affected from later this week

DNSChanger has been one of the most notorious malware to target web users in the recent times.

Google, CloudFlare and several other companies have worked hard to ensure that victims are notified about the malware on their machines.

FBI has already turned off the malware DNS servers that were used for this malware. Users accessing the malware IPs are currently being directed to correct locations.

But these servers would be shut down later this week and the users still connecting to the affecting IP addresses are likely to face disruption of services.

Remains to be seen if FBI changes their mind and continues to offer DNS services through the IPs that were previously being used for malicious activities.

The IP range that was used by the hackers behind DNSChanger is:

85.255.112.0 to 85.255.127.255
67.210.0.0 to 67.210.15.255
93.188.160.0 to 93.188.167.255
77.67.83.0 to 77.67.83.255
213.109.64.0 to 213.109.79.255
64.28.176.0 to 64.28.191.255
