Potential Virus unleashed on Computers Monday July 9th, 2012!

A years-old virus created in Estonia could wreak havoc on your smartphones and/or computers if you are infected.  The DNS changer virus was designed to re-route internet traffic to sites where the group could profit from ad-clicks.  The FBI has prevented this from happening through a two-year program called Operation Ghost Click.  On Monday the FBI is shutting down these "temporary servers" allowing the internet to return to normal.  In most computers, this issue has been dealt with, but if you want to make sure you are not vulnerable, read on...
