Apple.com cannot be hurt be conventional viruses as the server does not run windows, which makes it a good site to sheck for internet connections (if
it goes down, it is an attack, not a virus). If the site does goes down, I check on the international versions. This sort of thing is common though,
and if no sites work then it is your connection.
If you really are worried, make a list of sites hosted in different countries, then you can try them all to see which countries may have had web
Personally I'd be more worried if the televisions or radios stopped working...
also (sorry ot state the obvious) any computer running windows will get a virus at some stage, it is just something you have to deal with. Either get
better firewall and anti-virus software or use MacOS or Linux...
The increase in virus/web attacks you seem to notice is probably in response to everyone cracking down on them, they want to get as much out before
they are shut down, though personally I've seen a decrease...
Oh, and don't call 911, what a waste of time that is... better to call your ISP
