DNSChanger

Has Mcaffee alaready discovered this. If my definitions are up to date should I be ok or do I have to do anything else? Apparantly the FBI is involved in this.

Yes McAfee are aware of it and it is at least included in Stinger & I assume VirusScan and there is also Rootkitremover for certain rootkit infections, see this document:  https://community.mcafee.com/docs/DOC-2168

Certain kinds of infections can't be included in regular antivirus software (no matter what brand) because in order to detect them the engine would have to be set to a detection level so high that regular computer processes would be impeded or even corrupted.

McAfee know about the DNSChanger Trojan and provide coverage for it.

Someone asked a question here about the FBI operation a few weeks ago - see

"Did the FBI say we should check to see if computer is infected ?"
