Several years ago hackers have tried to attempt the changes to DNS(Domain Name Service) by spreading a malware called DNS Changer. If it happens the computers traffic may redirect to spammy sites. This may lead to make money for hackers. FBI has had a temporary fix in place to keep traffic away from the bad servers. But that ends on 9th of July. Thousands of computers across the U.S. won't be able to access the internet come Monday, July 9th.
Haley, a security specialist at Symantec, the makers of Noron Anti-Virus says, "When hackers try to attempt to access to internet, they will get a server not found. They won't be able to find any websites.Well there's a really easy step. The FBI has set up a website. You go to that website and it'll tell you immediately if you're infected or not. It'll take you two seconds to do it."
