    DNS malware alert

    I hope all of you have checked your computer for the DNS malware infection that could lose your Internet service on Monday. If your computer is clean you will receive a picture with a green background; if it is infected the background will be red. Click on the FBI link below to test your computer. Hope to see you all on Monday!

    Thank you, I didn't know how to check if my laptop was infected. It looks like I am ok.

    But it will be green if your internet service is using the servers that by passes the malware. These servers go off line Monday that is why the malware will infect, nothing to block it . You need to print out the instructions to get rid of it if it does effect your computer as you won't be able to get online to find the solution. I think older computers are more likely to have the malware.

    I couldn't see where you could print anything. I would like to think people would have better things to do, guess not.

    In case your computer is infected, or you want to be on the safe side, here's the link on how to clean it up: http://www.dcwg.org/fix/ . Apparently DCWG is an entity created specially to address this malware problem.
