(Undated) – If you’re having trouble getting online today, you might be a victim of Malware Monday. Hundreds of thousands of computers were infected with malware by hackers more than a year ago. Early this morning, the FBI shut down servers that have kept the infected computers online.
The threat was discovered nearly a year ago, but the FBI determined if the servers used to control the computers were turned off, victims would lose Internet service. If you’re not sure yet whether your computer is infected, you can check by visiting dcwg.org.
