Hackers have planted a DNS re-router virus on millions of users computers which will take millions of users offline by Monday, June 9th.
The malware lets the hackers control the DNS – the system which lets users access the internet and send email – for criminal activities including fraud.
US and Estonian authorities have been working on the problem since last November, with the FBI arranging temporary control of the infected servers to let users keep accessing the web.
This temporary arrangement ends at 2.00pm (AEST) on Monday, July 9, when computers hit by the DNSChanger will no longer be able to access internet services, according to the Internet Systems Consortium, the organisation which controls the operations of the web.
