German authorities are advising victims of DNSChanger Trojan programs to fix their computers' Domain Name System settings using a free tool developed by antivirus company Avira, because the servers resolving DNS queries on their behalf will be closed down on March 8.
Since the tool configures network adapters to automatically detect DNS settings via DHCP, it might not work for all network setups. If using the tool doesn't solve the problem, users should call their ISP and ask what their recommended DNS settings are.
