Several years ago, some suspected cyber criminals on the Internet wrote a family of malware dubbed DNSChanger. About a year ago, law enforcement tracked down the suspected cyber criminals behind this malware, arrested them, and took over the servers they were using to redirect customers to rogue sites.

As a result of a court order, the Internet Systems Consortium (ISC) under the direction of the FBI, has continued to run the DNS servers used by the malware for the last year. However, the court order will soon expire and those servers are scheduled to be shut down on July 9, 2012. When that happens, hundreds of thousands of Internet users whose systems are still infected and/or affected could lose access to the web, email, and anything else that depends on DNS.

Here is the FBI website:

http://www.fbi.gov/n.../malware_110911

Here is the link to check if you are ok.. or not

Good heads up, I work in ISP support so, I'm sure I'm going to get a lot of calls on this too. Losing DNS service though would affect internet connectivity, not pose a dire risk to the PC (beyond the malware they already have)
One should NEVER make definitive, unambiguous statements, ever.
