An article ran a couple of months ago stating that Estonian hackers infected more than 570,000 computers worldwide and an email address was offered to see if you were one of the "unclean" http://www.dcwg.org but that this would be going away by July 2, 2012 and some may not be able to get into the internet.

It is true that there was a virus, better known as DNS Changer, that infected a number of computers recently. The FBI actually published an article dealing with this threat and ways to identify it:http://www.fbi.gov/news/stories/2011/november/malware_110911/DNS-changer-malware.pdfWhilst the methods they use in there are a little bit more complicated than just using a website to do this for you, there is no harm in trying both options.For a list of FBI=approved sites you can follow this link:https://forms.fbi.gov/check-to-see-if-your-computer-is-using-rogue-DNS
