Y2K again? Beware the boy who cried wolf
This week, there was a massive fuss about turning off FBI servers that were servicing DNSChanger victims. I haven't seen such hype since the Y2K bug.
All kinds of mayhem were predicted back then, but none ever occurred. Perhaps the concerns were groundless, or maybe it was because we were all so well prepared.
Early this week, excitable warnings were made that around 1000 computers in New Zealand and 6000 in Australia would no longer be able to receive the internet from Monday afternoon. We got warnings from the government, we got warnings from government agencies. Security software firms contacted me to say that their country manager was keen to talk.
