Okay. You had weeks to prepare for the DNSChanger virus. HLN's Clark Howard even told you how to check to see if your computer had it, but you still cannot log on to the Internet today. No problem!
The most important step now is to contact your internet service provider. Comcast has already contacted customers who it believed may already have the virus. AT&T says it will redirect all customers to ensure they stay online and Verizon says it will help customers get rid of the virus.
In 2007, hackers deployed malware that would redirect users' Web searches to spoofed sites with malicious advertisements. The FBI couldn't take down the servers as it would have led to an internet outage to infected users.
The agency set up temporary servers to keep computers infected by the DNSChanger malware working, but it pulled the plug on those servers at 12:01 a.m. ET Monday.
The main thing is if you're able to read this story, you're most likely to be okay!
