An old computer virus may create new problems across Iowa and the United States beginning Monday. It’s a warning for computer users everywhere.
You need to be on the lookout for malware or you may be without the internet.
The FBI is sending a strong message for you to check your personal computer. A software called DNS Changer may infect thousands of unprotected computers Monday.
Security experts say infected computers probably got the DNS changer through e-mail attachments or by clicking on infected links.
The malware virus first infected computers in 2007.
The FBI created a temporary fix, but as of Monday, that fix will no longer work.
To find out if you’re computer has a problem, go to dns-ok.us.
If you see a green screen, your computer is okay. If the screen is red, you have a problem.
But don’t worry it’s not hard to fix:

Again you have to do this before Monday, otherwise the fixes gets much more difficult.
