DNSChanger redirects users to fake bank websites

Anonymous Reader writes "You want to pay up your credit card account immediately, as you just remembered that today is the due date. After getting on to your bank’s website by carefully typing in the URL, you put in your account number and password, go to the credit card payment section and perform the transaction. Satisfied with completing a task in time, you move onto other chores, till you find out that the website you visited and punched in confidential financial information was in fact a fake one!"
