DCWG malware fix server overwhelmed, attacked?

The “DNS Changer” malware is present on hundreds of thousands of personal computers around the planet. Yesterday the link below worked well to diagnose and fix below.

DCWG has a page (click here)   that is overwhelmed or being attacked.” Alternate: see my original post from yesterday.

Why is this happening? My theory (I hope) is that Fox News (and others) have broadcast a warning on this and everyone’s searching for “DCWG” – some of you are lucky enough to arrive here.
