Is this for real? I have been skeptical of this news bite since it first started appearing in the news. What I feel, is that the g o v will just turn off our access and that it is THEIR doing...to limit our communication with one another. So blaming some obscure hacker is whacko.

So Mon is sayonara day. Glad I dont have an internet based phone and the post office still delivers in our area. Now where did I put the big yellow pages book? We may have to go old school again.

They say we have to download something to keep this malware from kicking us offline. I have been hearing about this for a while but I do not understand it at all.
My computer won't download anything because I'm on dial-up and most downloads are way too large for dial-up.
I guess if we go, we go. There's nothing I can do about it if it's true. They had once small bit about it on the world news last night, but they never said what to do to get rid of the malware.. only a small "If you don't take precautions you'll be without internet".. period. Gee that was helpful. :/

The FBI reccomends this website to check your pc. It was easy and it's free.

Ok, I clicked and it shows I'm "Green" it says if it's red, I shoul worry.
They do have a long article on the local news online today.
I guess there must be something to it. (?? I'm still unsure, lol.. I just don't trust the gov enough to think much of their panic theories.)
