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..

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.

Isn't interesting the MSM aren't talking about this, they could at least warn their sheeple that a virus could cause internet "disruption, and that's why it needs fixed"

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"
