Thousands may lose the internet tomorrow
« on: July 08, 2012, 11:18:21 AM »
Not sure if you've all heard about the malware virus that changes ip addresses. In any event, if your computer has this virus, you probably won't be able to get on the internet tomorrow.
Here's a link to a site that explains how to check your computer to be sure you're safe.

Basically if you type this into a web browser "dns-ok.us" (without quotes and if you live in the us) a page will pop up showing either green, which means you're safe, or red which means your computer is invected.
There are further steps you can take to be sure you're really safe, even if you get the green page.

This link will explain what to do.

I hope everyone is safe.
