Internet superpowers Google and Facebook have been leading the charge to warn users about the DNSChanger malware that could prevent users from accessing the Internet starting Monday. That is when law enforcement authorities will shut down a server that was used by a group of Eastern European cyber criminals that used it for a "crooked advertising operation." Through the outreach from these companies, the number of users infected by the malware has dropped "from more than 500,000 to less than 70,000 in the United States." Be sure to check your system using a free or pay utility that targets malware before Monday to ensure that you don't find yourself disconnected from the Internet.
