The FBI DNS malware warning may affect you. There is a possibility that you could lose your access to the Internet at midnight Eastern time tonight due to a malware virus that may have been hiding on your system for over a year. I posted this on my Facebook page the other day, but wanted to get it out through all my available channels. Here is some additional information about what's going on, and what to do about it.
Lolita C. Baldor of the Huffington Post published an article on July 5, 2012 giving additional information and links to this situation.
You may also go on the FBI page which gives all the details. However, this is the direct link to the cleaner which will let you know if your computer was infected or not.
You may also click here to read the report issued by Janice Fedarcyk of New York who was the Assistant FBI Director who handled this situation.
The people responsible for this criminal act have been arrested.

The FBI DNS malware warning may only apply to less than 50,000 computers here in the US. While less than 50,000 computers being affected is a very small number compared to how many computers there are connected to the Internet, it would be a VERY BIG DEAL if your computer was one of those affected! So, please, save yourself a major headache and check your computer today so you can take corrective action BEFORE you've got a major problem on your hands tomorrow. Remember, better safe than sorry!
