It’s three days and counting before the deadline by the FBI hits in which they’ve threatened to shut down your Internet connection. The agency believes they are doing Americans a favor.
Morris said that the bottom line here is that by Monday if you haven’t updated your software, you could literally be offline and not be able to get on the Internet. If this happens, he said, “You have to call your local Internet service provider and they are going to have to walk you through step by step to try and get this taken care of, and you won’t have the Internet to be able to do it.”
Clayton Morris told Gretchen Carlson that this process started about a year ago when hackers decided to run a massive Internet advertising scam that was going to put malicious software on PCs around the world.
“Nearly a million folks in the United States had their computers inundated with this software so that they could drive up advertising rates on different websites. The FBI stepped in, stopped that from happening, made these arrests and kept you, your Internet, up and running for the last year.”
He continued, “We should be thanking the FBI for what they did for the last year, because they put these servers in at the last second to keep you online.”
~ Is he a moron?! Does he not even visit the possibilty they are creating this JUST like Stuxnet?! Possibly JUST like Flame?! All for Internet control ordered by this administration to keep us in check?! ~ JP
And this is how the FBI rolls:
Approximately 64,000 Americans could lose Internet access on Monday thanks to a criminal organization that infected millions of computers around the world with malware called DNSChanger. This malware was used to direct unsuspecting users to rogue servers controlled by the cyber thieves, where they manipulated users’ web browsing activity and used it for ad hijacking, allowing them to make millions of dollars in illicit fees.
After announcing criminal indictments and seizing the rogue servers last November, the FBI obtained a court order and worked with a non-profit to set up temporary clean DNS servers for victims affected by the DNSChanger malware. But, says Supervisory Special Agent Thomas Grasso of our Cyber Division, “On July 9, we’re going to be turning off those servers. We’ve been using the last eight months to go out and clean up the infected computers, but we don’t have everybody.” Grasso says he hopes that people “follow our recommendations to: one, determine if they’re affected by this; and then two, fix the problem.”
~ Now I have worked tirelessly for two days checking my malware repeatedly. I deleted games which repeatedly turned up in my registry. The only two malware I retained as of this posting were from Window Essential Live. Needless to say I got rid of it. Because I do not trust Windows. I do not trust Google. I do not trust this government. So if my server goes down it is ONLY due to Government control of the Internet! ~ JP
