    So my ISP (Cogeco Cable - Eastern Ontario, Canada) decided to cut my internet. Apparently I was infected (and still am) with DNS Malware (they didn't specify, yet I believe it is called DNSChanger) They told me a bunch of website to check to see if I have it. They have given me temporary access to remove it. I checked a bunch of websites, including

    http://www.dns-ok.gov.au/
    http://dns-ok.us/
    etc

    They all show up that I am not infected, anyways the website they gave me.

    http://www.thinkbroadband.com/tools/dnscheck.html

    Shows that I am infected.

    I have checked all of my computers (A Dell PC, and a MBP) I checked all my routers, including my Linksys E3000 with DD WRT.

    This router is running DD-WRT v24-sp2 (08/12/10) mega and I have checked everywhere and it doesn't appear to have been infected. I believe they are giving me a False Negative.

    I just downloaded the trial version of ESET (I know, I know but I just wanted to check)

    Is there anywhere else I can check on my Mac to see if I do have it, I have gone into the DNS settings and they are set to Google's DNS servers. This is making me go crazy, I know they are screwing with me!

    Do all your computers show positive on thinkbroadband's test? Reflash your router.
