Infected users get legit warning about July 9 'Internet Doomsday' Suzanne Choney We recently told you about the "Internet doomsday" that could happen July 9 for PC and Mac users who haven't taken steps to make sure their systems aren't infected with DNSChanger malware.
The malware is so vicious it can interfere with users' Web browsing, steer them to fraudulent websites and make their computers vulnerable to other malicious software that the FBI has put a safety net of sorts in place, using government computers to prevent any Internet disruptions for users whose computers may be infected. But the government's safety net goes away July 9, and starting on that day, you may not be able to get an Internet connection if your computer is infected with DNSChanger.
hope i'm not breaking any rules for reviving this thread... just wanted to make sure that this "internet doomsday" isn't a hoax. read about it only today (somewhere else) but i'm not sure the link to "check and fix" is legit.
knowing that july 9 is just around the corner, would anyone think it advisable to proceed?
