When I read this first time, I thought it is a joke, but it is not, so read carefully and check whether your are infected or not.

On July 9, 2012 Many users will loose their internet connections as there are nearly 350,000 virus infected machines worldwide, and the virus will start working on July 9 and will not get internet access by changing the DNS server.

The DNSChanger malware is a Trojan horse infection that at its peak affected approximately 4 million PC systems worldwide, with about 500,000 of those being in the United States.
