Internet Doomsday Looms

by duncanr

In November last year, the FBI closed down servers belonging to a criminal gang. The gang had infected millions of computers worldwide with malicious software that redirected internet traffic from these computers to the gangs own servers

Before closing down the gang’s servers, the FBI set up their own temporary servers to allow PC owners continued access to the internet while the Alureon malware was removed from their machines.

Those temporary servers are . . . set to be closed down on July 9th. So time is running out for the estimated 1/4 million users who have not yet disinfected their machines. If they don’t get their act together then come Monday, they won’t be able to access the internet (
