I am taking a “station break” from usual blogging fun to spread the word about a potentially hazardous event for your home computers and lap tops.
For those who are savvy enough to know about this already, please excuse … for those who are on a “negative news diet”, and may not be aware of the approaching deadline of protection, or perhaps you are just out having fun 😀 … please take a moment to protect your cyber-communication portal!! Deadline window is by July 9th (Monday).
(Reuters) – About a quarter-million computer users around the world are at risk of losing Internet access on Monday because of malicious software at the heart of a hacking scam that U.S. authorities shut down last November.
Information on how to identify and clean up infections can be found on a website that a group of security firms and other experts set up: www.dcwg.org.
Also, the FBI website: https://forms.fbi.gov/check-to-see-if-your-computer-is-using-rogue-DNS has comprehensive instructions.
No downloads are necessary.
