Disasters come in all shapes and forms.

 

Recently the US news (TV, Print and Net) has been discussing that some computers will not be able to access the internet on 9 June, 2012 (tomorrow), if they are infected with a particular DNS malware.


One example of the story can be read at

It is possible to check whether your computer's clean by going to this site set up by the FBI: http://www.dns-ok.us/

Alternatively, you can go directly to the FBI website and read details on the problem: http://www.fbi.gov/news/stories/2011/november/malware_110911

Take the precaution of checking your system.

Let's be careful out there.
