Google - Notifying users affected by the DNSChanger malware

http://j.mp/Kwnkdd  (Google Online Security Blog)

  "Starting today we're undertaking an effort to notify roughly half a
   million people whose computers or home routers are infected with a
   well-publicized form of malware known as DNSChanger. After
   successfully alerting a million users last summer to a different
   type of malware, we've replicated this method and have started
   showing warnings via a special message that will appear at the top
   of the Google search results page for users with affected devices."
