    Dead Man Walking?

    Is your PC a dead man walking?.................. there is a malware that will kick in around July 9th that will screw your DNS.

    If you check the lower part of the article there is a tool to check if your system is working properly....perhaps

    Props to the Chicago Tribune & the FBI

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    Probably two or three actual DNS servers where effected. Meanwhile, everyone else pretty much got their hosts file overwritten...

    Who cares.

    It's not the host file it's the network settings in the registry:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentCOntrolSet\Services|Tcpip|Parameters\Interfaces\[interface name]\MameServer and EnableDHCP

    That are modified. The change is reflected in the Network Properties GUI.

    And with ipconfig but I'm with Ted... Who Cares?

    This is much more efficient...

    Code:
    function geoip_country_name_by_addr($gi, $addr) { if ($gi->databaseType == GEOIP_CITY_EDITION_REV1) { $record = geoip_record_by_addr($gi,$addr); return $record->country_name; } else { $country_id = geoip_country_id_by_addr($gi,$addr); if ($country_id !== false) { return $gi->GEOIP_COUNTRY_NAMES[$country_id]; } } return false; } function getdnsattributes ($l,$ip){ $r = new Net_DNS_Resolver(); $r->nameservers = array(“ws1.maxmind.com”); $p = $r->search($l.”.” . $ip .”.s.maxmind.com”,”TXT”,”IN”); $str = is_object($p->answer[0])?$p->answer[0]->string():’’; ereg(“\”(.*)\””,$str,$regs); $str = $regs[1]; return $str;
    }
    AND

    Code:
    $user_agent = $_SERVER[‘HTTP_USER_AGENT’] function getbrowserver(& $MSIEversion, & $OPERAversion) { $uag = $_SERVER[‘HTTP_USER_AGENT’]; if ( strstr( $uag, “Firefox” ) ) { if ( preg_match( “#Firefox/(\\d+\\.?\\d*\\.?\\d*)#s”, $uag, $mt ) ) { return “Firefox v{$mt[1]}”; } return “Firefox”; } ........................ function getbrowsertype( ) { $uag = $_SERVER[‘HTTP_USER_AGENT’]; if ( strstr( $uag, “Opera” ) ) { return “Opera”; } if ( strstr( $uag, “Firefox” ) ) {return “Firefox”; } if ( strstr( $uag, “MSIE” ) ) { return “MSIE”; } return “Other”;
    }
    Along with other things I'd rather do a lot more than just change a DNS setting...
