The good news? Krebs notes that after the shutdown law enforcement was able to replace the scumware's DNS infrastructure with legitimate DNS servers. The bad news? Those DNS servers stop working on March 8:
Computers still infected with DNSChanger are up against a countdown clock. As part of the DNSChanger botnet takedown, the feds secured a court order to replace the Trojan’s DNS infrastructure with surrogate, legitimate DNS servers. But those servers are only allowed to operate until March 8, 2012. Unless the court extends that order, any computers still infected with DNSChanger may no longer be able to browse the Web.
The FBI's effort to put DNSChanger to bed has resulted in some fairly silly headlines, such as "FBI might shutdown the Internet on March 8." While the date might not be apocalyptic, it's certainly going to be a busy one for ISP support reps unless the DNSChanger Working Group can somehow get the deadline extended.
