As we all know, DNSChanger has two executables: EXE for Windows and DMG for Mac OS X. This threat has been around for quite sometime, but there?s nothing exceptional until last week a new variant captured our attention.

A new EXE variant of DNSChanger is capable of changing users? DNS settings by hacking the configuration page of the wireless router. Is this true ? Yes, it?s targeting a list of routers and performs dictionary attack.

Is there similar variant affecting Mac? Let?s check the latest downloadable DMG file, courtesy of several PornTube sites roaming around the net.
