Years ago when Conficker was a real threat, I put in a plug for OpenDNS as an alternative to using the default DNS from your ISP. OpenDNS will not connect to an infected site and to date has picked up more than 1 million phishing scam sites. It is trusted by some of the biggest names in the business.

OpenDNS has now picked up one of the most prestigious Internet Awards, and received a plug from the NY Times (pretty good reasons for looking at this free service I reckon).
