Internet users get legit warning about July 9th 'Internet Doomsday'

So I just found this and it doesn't look at though it's been posted here yet.

If you see this message pop up on your computer screen in the days, weeks and months ahead, don't panic: It's legitimate and it's meant to warn you about malware that could hurt your computer.

We recently told you about the "Internet doomsday" that could happen July 9 for PC and Mac users who haven't taken steps to make sure their systems aren't infected with DNSChanger malware.

Does anyone know anything about this? Isn't the DNS an address or am I wrong?

It sounds to me that they may be going after computers that are hiding their internet addresses, again I could be wrong.

About the malware.

The malware is so vicious ā€” it can interfere with users' Web browsing, steer them to fraudulent websites and make their computers vulnerable to other malicious software ā€” that the FBI has put a safety net of sorts in place, using government computers to prevent any Internet disruptions for users whose computers may be infected. But the government's safety net goes away July 9, and starting on that day, you may not be able to get an Internet connection if your computer is infected with DNSChanger.

If nothing else this goes to show how much the government is up in our business.

Well FBI exists for our protection anyway, right? That's why we pay them?

Thanks for the links.

It looks like this will only affect people whose computers have been infected by hacker software.

I had seen something like this awhile ago but I thought the shutdown date had already passed.

I remember I clicked the FBI link someone posted and my computer was fine.

If anyone wants to check, I think the same link is in the article I posted a link to.
