Check Your Computer Before Monday
Washington, DC (WIBX) – The Federal Bureau of Investigation is telling computer users that they have until Monday to double-check computers for malicious software, or “malware,” or rick being booted off of the Internet.
Last year “Operation Ghost Click” uncovered a computer virus that re-routes infected machines attempting to access the World Wide Web. It was spread by hackers to an estimated four million computers worldwide.
Temporary servers that have been addressing the problem will be shut down on Monday, July 9, 2012, and infected computers will not be able to access the Internet.
