Tens of thousands of U.S. computer users woke up this morning without Internet access, due to a rogue computer virus.
The virus is expected to affect 300,000 people worldwide, roughly 50,000 of those are in the United States. There's isn't huge chance that you were infected, but if you woke up without Internet access this morning, then it is a big deal for you.
This virus was traced back to six Estonians who were charged with corrupting four million computers world wide with malware a few months ago.
That virus hijacked computers, forcing them to use Internet servers that often directed the user to sites that they did not intend to go to.
After the scammers were caught, the FBI took over their servers, allowing users to surf the Internet for months without any issues.
Now the FBI has pulled the plug, essentially disconnecting an estimated tens of thousands of infected devices.
If your Internet was working this morning, then you don't have to worry about checking or changing anything. However, Internet providers say they are braced for calls to their help lines today. And many have put together technical solutions in place that will correct the server problem.
