    Well at least that's what they called it on the news... Anyway I just saw a report that over 300,000 people could lose their internet because of a DNS changer malware that was used to direct you to malicious sites.

    The FBI took over the servers the malware directed your computer to, but will be shutting them down on July 9th. If your infected when those servers go down, I reckon your fucked. (Edit: well I guess it wasn't the FBI... read it wrong.)

    You can read about it at:

    Thats the site they recommended on the news and it gives links to see if your infected.

    Yall might want to check it out.

    I saw it on the news on the day I made this post originally. The reason I posted it was because of some posts I remembered about people getting strange result from google searches. Sounded like this malware could have been the culprit.

    The thing is that you could be infected and not know it until those servers, formally used by the hackers are shut down. Then you lose your shit.

    Just hope everyone here stays safe before this shit hits the fan.

    Yep... that link is on the site in my original post as well. There are also some links to other information including how to remove the malware.

    Those servers will be shut down in about 7 hours from now. So hopefully yall can keep this thread bumped up until then to get the word out to the members here.

    I gotta get some sleep before work tonight... Hope no one here gets affected by this.
