    do you trust this or are you a paranoid who thinks that going to the link is a way for the gov't to spy on you or do some other bullshit thing? have you already gone to the gov't website? are you going to?



    [h=1]FBI: Hundreds Of Thousands May Lose Internet In July[/h]
    WASHINGTON (AP) — For computer users, a few mouse clicks could mean the difference between staying online and losing Internet connections this summer.


    Unknown to most of them, their problem began when international hackers ran an online advertising scam to take control of infected computers around the world. In a highly unusual response, the FBI set up a safety net months ago using government computers to prevent Internet disruptions for those infected users. But that system is to be shut down.


    The FBI is encouraging users to visit a website run by its security partner, http://www.dcwg.org , that will inform them whether they're infected and explain how to fix the problem. After July 9, infected users won't be able to connect to the Internet.

    it's a real story, but i wonder if the threat is real or if it is a government info gathering plot. an i ain't even a paranoid usually. this just is weird to me.

    it's a legit story that has been on all major media outlets. a lot of people seem to be worried aboot going to a government website for a computer scan though. i'm computer retarded so i don't know if it's something to worry aboot or not.

    The gubmint is not there to serve you. If you think they are, you're naive. Choose accordingly
