    Windows 8.1


    I've got this exact same problem. Any suggestions on what to do? I've tried flushing and restarting my modem, but nothing has worked. I'm not sure how to proceed. Any help you can provide would be much appreciated!

    Do I have no choice but to buy a new modem? And how serious is the DNS attack? Are they spying on everything I do, or just when I visit the omegle domain?

    Omegle is best left alone don't go there, yes in order to clear it you need a new modem sorry to say that, Its not going to spy on you and no your not being watched at all, but it best to get it taken care of as you could get a virus if the DNS poison decided to sling you to another site infected with one. Also do a complete virus scan as the guy who gives you this said on another forum he started to place files on the persons pc, this was long after i left omegle, so i never got it, but it would be best to scan your pc and look for anything not suppose to be there or out of the ordinary from the norm on your pc.

    Well that's a bit frustrating, but also a huge relief. At least I don't need to rebuild my whole computer. I'm moving in a couple of months, which will involve switching out modems--I may just wait until then to replace the modem.

    I've done a virus scan with Avast, AntiMalwareBytes, ESET, and SuperAntiSpyware, and caught quite a few viruses. Nothing major though--it just seems to be adware. Thanks for the heads up--I really appreciate your reply! I'm significantly less freaked out now.
