There are many viruses that can affect your computer, but there’s one that could cause you to not be able to connect to the internet after July 9.

In a story that I saw on CBS 6, there’s a trojan called ‘DNS Changer.’ It will redirect your searches from legitimate websites to ones you don’t want to reach. The good news is the people that are responsible have been caught.

The FBI’s website has information about the ‘DNS Changer’ trojan, and also a way to see if your computer has been infected. One place to help you and to get more information is CBSNews.com.  You can do a check at dns-ok.us.
