You're going to upset the gramatically correct brigade  Wink
And no, not heard anything about it and seeing as you've not told us the name of it the odds are quite low any of us will know what you're talking about.

It's called DNSChanger.  Lots of business computers were infected but the FBI took control of the servers a long time ago and kept them running so the businesses wouldn't fall over, now they are shutting down the master servers so anyone infected by the virus will have DNS problems.
