Will Your Computer Crash Monday? Run This Simple FBI-Approved Test
For some, there will be no Internet access after Monday.
The Internet is abuzz about the DNS Changer computer malware that is expected to leave some without Web access on Monday.
The nasty bug came to light last year when it was reported that international cyber criminals were taking control of computers.
The problem was so concerning that the FBI responded by running a computer intervention. (Click here to read more from the FBI on the DNSChanger malware.)
It is estimated that about 277,000 computers worldwide — 64,000 of them in the United States — may still be infected with the malware and on July 9 the FBI is disabling its stopgap measure. So for some, there will be no Internet access after Monday.
