What is DNS?

The Domain Name Systems (DNS) is the phonebook of the Internet. Humans access information online through domain names, like nytimes.com or espn.com. Web browsers interact through Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. DNS translates domain names to IP addresses so browsers can load Internet resources.

 

How to prevent DNS hijacking?

DNS hijacking occurs when an application redirects your Web browser to other websites. This is a common symptom of a trojan or other malware infection on your computer. Even if you practice cautious Internet habits, a trojan can make your way onto your computer through an email attachment or clicked link. You can use the native tools in Windows to stop the DNS hijacker processes and remove the infection from your computer without relying on third-party software products.
