DNSChanger Malware: Facebook warns internet access could be lost

Pay attention -- or you could be booted off the Internet Monday.

Facebook is notifying users who have a certain type of malware on their computers that if they don't remove it, they will lose internet access on July 9th, when the F-B-I shuts down the malware.

If a user accesses Facebook from a computer infected with D-N-S-Changer malware, the site will display an alert, with a link to a website that instructs users on how to remove the malware.  

The F-B-I's website also has a link that allows people to check if they have malware on their machines.  

According to the F-B-I , D-N-S-Changer malware can modify a computer's settings and possibly direct the computer to "improper results."
