Check Your System for Malware Now or Lose the Internet on Monday

If you’re one of 64,000 Americans infected with DNS malware you will lose your connection to the Internet on Monday, July 9th. But the FBI has your back and detecting and removing the malware for your computer is a matter of a few clicks.

The problem began when international hackers ran a scam to control of more than 570,000 infected computers around the world. When the FBI went in to take down the hackers, agents realized if they turned off the malicious servers being used to control the malware, all the victims would lose their Internet service.

So the FBI set up a safety net. They brought in a private company to install two clean Internet servers to take over for the malicious servers so that people would not suddenly lose their Internet.

But that temporary system will be shut down at 12:01 am (EDT) Monday, July 9,2012. So by my clock, you have about 45 minutes to check your machines.

To test if you have the DNS Malware just visit www.dcwg.org and follow the on screen instructions. The site will tell you if your computer is okay, or if you need to clean out the malware.

If you’re infected after the FBI’s servers are shut down you’ll have to contact your Internet Service Provider to help removing the malware and getting you back online.
