F-Secure Router Checker is an online tool, that will scan your computer and check if your DNS settings or Router have been hijacked or compromised.

DNS stands for Domain Name System and this helps a browser in figuring out the IP address of a website, so that it can load it on your computer. DNS cache is a file on your or your ISP’s computer, that contains a list of IP addresses of regularly used websites.

Since the DNS is important in rendering the correct web address, hackers & scammers try and compromise it for criminal activity. This is called as DNS Cache Poisoning or Hijacking. When the DNS is poisoned, you can get redirected to malicious web pages, instead of your legitimate site. Thus they re-route your Internet traffic using “rogue DNS servers”.
