Did you know you might lose your Internet Monday July 9th, 2012?

I was watching the news last night, an occurrence that is becoming rare since I do not like to be bombarded with bad news. Well long and behold I have my attention the News Caster states that the Internet on my computer might be shut down.

Armed with this information I went and searched and discovered that  tens of thousands of Americans may still lose their Internet service Monday unless they do a quick check of their computers for the DNSChanger malware that could have taken over their machines more than a year ago.

Needless to say I went on the FBI’s website and checked my IP Address with their data base. I would advise you do the same, to make sure. According to the FBI despite repeated alerts the number of computers that are infected is more than 277,000 worldwide. FYI this is a decrease from about 360,000 in April. The FBI believes that there are about 64,000 computers still affected. Here is the result of my test. Hope you will have the same result.

Once you are on the website here is the link to test you computer

If all goes well this is what a good report should look like:
