FBI: Web Will Go Dark for 350,000 Infected Internet Users

This is an ominous bit of information provided by the FBI: 350K Internet users face loss of Internet on July 9th. The resulting DNS server shutdown is a remnant of the 4.2M computers infected by the DNSChanger malware from November 2011. Check your computer at the DWCG website to insure that your computer isn’t infected.

But having cleaned all but 350,000 devices, DWCG, the organization tasked to maintain and oversee the servers, announced that the servers will be shut down on July 9. Consequently, infected devices will lose access to the Internet.
