A group of International may have infected your computer which can make your computer inaccessible to the Internet.
So how did this really happen?
The problem came to be known when a group of International hackers disclosed that they have 570,000 infected computers around the world. When the FBI reached to shutdown these hackers they realized if they turned off the malicious servers being used to control the computers through the malware, the infected computers will lose their internet service.
All the Internet services providers and Antivirus providers have been warned and FBI believes that there at least 64,000 computers in the US that are still infected. Most users are unaware their computer has been infected as only symptom is slowed web browsing and disabled Antivirus software.
According to Tom Grasso, an FBI supervisory special agent, many internet providers are ready for the problem and have plans to try to help their customers. Some, such as Comcast, already have reached out.
Grasso said other internet providers may come up with technical solutions that they will put in place Monday that will either correct the problem or provide information to customers when they call to say their internet isn’t working. If the internet providers correct the server problem, the internet will work, but the malware will remain on victims’ computers and could pose future problems.
