    Malware may knock thousands off Internet on Monday - WBOC-TV 16, Delmarvas News Leader, FOX 21 - (click for full article)

    "WASHINGTON (AP) - Despite repeated alerts, tens of thousands of Americans may still lose their Internet service Monday unless they do a quick check of their computers for malware that could have taken over their machines more than a year ago.


    The warnings about the Internet problem have been splashed across Facebook and Google. Internet service providers have sent notices, and the FBI set up a special website.


    According to the FBI, the number of computers that probably are infected is more than 277,000 worldwide, down from about 360,000 in April. About 64,000 still-infected computers are probably in the United States."
