Will you lose Internet access Monday?
GreatLakesGeek.com visitors are already aware of the impending shutdown of Internet access to systems infected with the DNS Changer malware.
The ring behind the DNS Changer virus, discovered in 2007, was shut down last year by the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Estonian police and other law enforcement agencies.
About 69,000 computers in the US are infected. Symantec posted, "If your computer is still using DNS entries that are pointing to the FBI servers on July 9, you will lose TOTAL access to the Internet. No connecting to the office from home, no updating Facebook, nothing until the DNS settings are fixed."
Make it easy on your less technically astute friends and family and have then check their system here.
