Infected?

The DNS Changer. Do you know about this? It's bad news for your computer and you may not even know about it or know you have been infected some time ago. But come Monday those who are in infected could lose internet service, not a place you want to be.

So serious is this attack that the FBI has actually set up a safety net and a web site for people to check to see if they are infected. If you are, they also provide links to clean you up in time before losing service on Monday.

I am always skeptical, but I myself tried this site and it all worked fine. It told me me computer is NOT infected. You can check too, just click here to get to the same site I used to check.

I'll talk more about this on the show today. And in the 4:00 hour let us know what's up this weekend in our "Chadoin' This Weekend?" segment. You can post on the PhilCast Facebook fan page or call us live to chat at 281-1150 or 1-866-887-1150.
