Thousands may lose Internet access when FBI shuts down servers - The Hill's Hillicon Valley

The following excerpts are from The Hill:
  • Hundreds of thousands of people could lose Internet service on Monday when the FBI shuts down servers from an online fraud ring that allegedly planted a virus among computer users.
  • The FBI says about 252,000 computers worldwide could be affected and that about 45,000 of those computers are in the United States.
  • Users can check whether their computer is infected with the malicious software — often called malware — by visiting dcwg.org, a site run in cooperation with the FBI, or by visiting an anti-virus site such as McAfee
Note: This will happen on Monday, July 09, and is not limited to only the United States!
