Internet virus blackout

You could be among the hundreds of thousands of Americans who may lose their internet service on Monday July 9th.

You could be part of an internet virus blackout if your computer is infected with the DNS changer virus.

USA Today reports the virus was part of an online advertising scam that redirected computers to fake servers, even disabling anti-virus software.

The FBI arrested the hackers last year but had to set up clean internet servers to take the place of the malicious servers so infected computers wouldn't lose their service.

However, come Monday that system is being shut down.
