Make sure you aren’t infected by using any number of web tools. I used this one, to which I was directed by the FBI and PCMag: http://www.dns-ok.us/

@LD333:  I think you have to make sure you select the appropriate url “ending” for your country, eg if you’re in Canada, it’ll be http://www.dns-ok.ca

It’s interesting how “warfare” takes place now, via internet outages and cyber attacks. I took a history of warfare course not long ago, and this is how assaults are now playing out in the world. 

Of course I don’t know the circumstances surrounding this one, but it’s interesting to think how technological determinism effects us.
