The FBI is helping to avoid a Y2K situation due to cyber hackers that have developed to infect our computers, and if we do not take steps to debug our own computers, we will not be able to go on the internet. The date this will happen is July 9, 2012. Unknown to most of us, international hackers ran an online advertising scam to take control of computers around the world. The FBI is encouraging us to visit a website run that will inform us whether we’re infected and it explain how to fix the problem. After July 9, infected users won’t be able to connect to the Internet.
Most victims don’t even know their computers have been infected, although the malicious software probably has slowed their web surfing and disabled their antivirus software, making their machines more vulnerable to other problems.
The FBI has already developed an online program to check and clean computers, you can simply click here to check and clean yours if it is already infected.
