FBI: Beware of possible computer virus

Internet security

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The FBI is urging all computer owners to check for a type of malware called DNS Changer. Once it’s on your computer, if you type in a specific web address, the malware can actually send you to a fake version of that website. A group of international hackers infected computers in an online advertising scam, according to the FBI, and on July 9, hundreds of thousands of computers could lose the ability to connect to the internet. The FBI is asking all computer owners go to www.dcwg.org. The website will let you know if your computer is infected and how to fix it.
