Gizmodo: Tonight at 12:01 AM EDT Monday July 9th, the Internet is going to become inaccessible for nearly half a million people around the world because of malware called DNS Changer. If your computer is infected with DNS Changer, it won't be able to get on the Internet anymore. Here's how to get rid of it and make sure the Internet still works for you.
It's important to note that even though half a million blocked internet users sounds like a lot, that number is a pretty small subset of the entire world's Internet-connected population. Chances are you're not affected by this at all. Seriously, you're probably not. Really, you should be safe. But like any annoying virus, real or digital, it's a good idea to check yourself and your computer out anyway. Safe computing is underrated, you know. And plus, using your computer without the Internet is a sad existence: no more Facebook crawling, no more Gchat chatting, no more meme spotting, no more adult video watching. You don't want that to happen to you.
