Yup I traced that 77 with Google earth to a Pennsylvania address, Parking lot is full of Black Suburbans!!!

I'm movin' to the Cloud

The sheeple have a choice they just don't know how to specify their own DNS server.

This is going to take place July 9th beginning at midnight correct? If so what time zone would be affected first? Just thinking we may be able to pick up some more information about this at midnight.

Isn't it incorrect though to assume that people infected will have no internet tomorrow?

They can still use e-mail (POP) and go to certain sites, right? It's just certain websites (probably popular sites like FB, Utube, CNN, fox, amazon, ebay, etc.) that will be rerouted to some other malware site?
I read this on another website while others are saying you will "lose internet ACCESS"....

Also, if you lose access... how long? Indefinitely?

Obviously I'm no virus expert...

I tried removing the DNS nameserver from my registry after logging on to my service and I could not go anywhere, none of my bookmarks worked.

That is what will happen if you have one of the FBI run nameservers specified and they pull the plug on the server.

In the future there may be partial restrictions if DNS servers miss route what they consider problem URL's. That probably includes sites where intellectual property issues exist. Some countries like China restrict political content and Norway restricts porn etc. etc.

One answer is to set up your ISP connection with a specified open DNS server that does not censure.

Yes, I doubt it's all access to the Internet. However, most people seem to associate web browsing solely with the Internet for some reason. You can telnet, ftp, run a rdp session, etc. without a problem most likely. However, it would probably behoove someone to just fix the issue instead of trying to work around it.

If it's one thing I've learned from being on ATS, it's that hardly any of the conspiracy theories EVER talked about here EVER happen. To be sure, there is crap out there, and to be sure, the Internet has alerted many to it, including myself. But to be sure, the internet has also magnified and distorted beyond all recognition any of these conspiracy theories until at this point, we're merely trading stories that have gone through too many minds before we see them in print.

And by the way, anyone who uses the word "sheeple" is someone I immediately stop listening to.

Oh wait, it's fine.

Hai Guis!

I hurd their going to kill the intreweb today? Is this true?


I guess they didn't do it after all. But I wonder how many of those people infected with the malware who are too stupid to fix their PC themselves, are sitting there cursing the FBI and wringing their hands in the air..

Good riddance I say, they're the sort of people that would make a thread like this to start with.

Well it's July 9th here 12:04. Everything seems to be okay for now.

UGH I'm so sick of seeing these ridiculous comments talking about how if you're infected or don't know how to fix it you're "stupid" and should not have the right the have the internet (as I've read many comments along these lines around the net)... think of all the people who have the internet just so they can e-mail their family and video chat with their grandkids...

yeah, how so very STUPID of them. How dare they not understand the intricacies of the internet and computers!

And you "guess they didn't do it after all"? Seriously? How would you even know right away especially if you weren't affected? Let's just wait a bit before jumping to conclusions.

Guess we can't all be geniuses like you. (sarcasm) Your arrogance is truly out of this world.

Yea no kidding, the internet can Definitely be shut down by big brover guberment. All they have to do is target the ISP's.. There are a lot less of those than companies like google or yahoo, through which most of the population thinks we get our internet from. Its not a matter of shutting down a few thouzand servers, these machines require internet to function at all. As long as the ISP's are targeted, MILLIONS of people can be cut off.

no it really can't, not unless the government wants to destroy the economy, and get themselves lynched by 300 million people.
this is one of those cases that could test the loyalty for the US government, as the SOPA thing showed, amercans will scream bloody murder if they can't google.

also shutting down ISP's is not a kill switch, it is a good way to get shot by soccer-moms and facebook addicts.

oh come on.. if you are such an expert, why the heck don't you know that the virus installs without the user knowing?
not everyone is a computer expert, calling them stupid for something they didn't even know about is just being a jerk.
not everyone has time to learn this stuff, and the fbi deems it necessary because the owners of this thing are stealing money from innocent people.

people who shame people as stupid for not being computer experts disgust me, grow up.

The only connection the US government has with this virus, is that they arrested the criminal gang that made it. The FBI now has full control over the servers the criminals owned which allowed the virus to function.

The FBI has kept the criminal servers running so millions of people don't suddenly lose internet. They have contacted all the infected people they can and are now switching the criminal server off.

All these sensational theories on here amuse me, I would like to see the credentials of anyone that believes this is a government conspiracy.

It's not such a big deal anyway, sit me down infront of an infected computer and i could bypass the "block" without even removing the virus.

Considering some of the posts on here kind of show the 'sheeple' are all over the place. Anyhow, MSM. Take a look at -

I hope that most people have awoken today to find all is ok....Is anyone from New Zealand on here who can confirm how many hours they have been online today without a hitch.

life is like a box of chocolates you reach your hand in and go F(£* thats not what i wanted.

no i guess this will be another prediction gone bad...but the day is not over if anyone gets news on if people are affected/infected please come and let us know...oh right you wont be able too....ummm ok then listen to the news today and see what comes up.

The fact that the gullible public even believes in a "kill switch" is laughable.

Are you aware that there are thousands of hackers/crackers out there that will no doubt work overtime to override such a "kill switch"?

I don't think such a thing is possible and even if it were, there are more dangerous things to worry about. No internet? No problem! There's a whole world out there waiting to be discovered.

Couldn't agree more. Wish I could give you more stars.

the problem is we and they are the MINORITY. the millions of idiot sheeple will lap this up like no tommorow. its already all the morons at work are talking about. imagine if they use this and it works, then in the future they come out and go "oh there is another virus, its bigger, we need to shutdown you all to protect everyone" and unless you have the nohow you will think the internet is down for good.

it just seems like a test to see if idiots will believe this or not, if it works we really have become the essence of "idiocracy"

Your comments are staggeringly arrogant because it was the OP on this thread who talked about a kill switch, and many posters to the thread have talked about it as though it was a reality!! I don't see that from any 'idiot sheeple' not on ATS - the actual issue has been perfectly well explained in the media...

If there was a major attack toward our comPuters and business I would like to think we could
Shut down or limit a countries access in an emergency. One thing I was worried about is how on the day Facebook
Became an IPO and didn't do well it was able to be pulled and released on a different day
I think that could put markets In a Panic if people start seeing such things can be controlled.

False flag event? .. lol really now? are you kidding me? ..

DNSChanger has been known about for a long time ( a couple of years now ), the FBI has been actively warning people.. the folks behind the virus have already been arrested ... the FBI has had DNS servers up to "temporarily" fix people who are infected and allow them to easily know if they are infected for a long long time now..

Last estimation, only a few hundred thousand worldwide were still infected.. all common / updated virus software detects and removes it .. it's not even nasty, it's easy to fix and it acts in a simple manner.. the ops post is fear mongering at it's best.

Bottom line is that there has been WAY more than enough time to detect and remove this mundane little virus.. the only people who will be affected by it are those who are foolish enough to not run a virus scanner and those who are computer illiterate who also don't have any computer literate friends to help troubleshoot ..

This is a non-event.. and if it's a false flag alert then why would the feds have been trying to spread the word for the last couple of years to help people prevent it? .. it makes no sense to even suggest something like that.. this virus isn't new.. it's just gone un-noticed because the feds took over the infected servers to allow people to go uninterrupted while giving them HUGE amounts of time to fix their systems.
