Internet Users Could Lose Access Monday
Internet users around the world might want to check their computers for malware, as they could face an "Internet blackout" after 4 a.m. G-M-T or 1 p.m. Korea Time on Monday.
The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation are planning to shut down temporary servers that were set up to keep infected computers online for the past eight months.
The problem began when international hackers created malicious software, known as DNSChanger that redirected Internet traffic through rogue servers.
When authorities took down these servers, a U.S. federal judge ordered that temporary servers be kept in place as victims repaired their computers.
Users can check if their computer has been infected by accessing the website DNS-OK.US. .
