    I doubt it's legit. Probably a scam. How on earth could the FBI know if my computer is infected?

    Yea, this is old news. Government going to shutdown the DNS servers that are preventing rogue machines from contacting the "bad" ones, then not being able to connect. This will only effect pc's that don't have AV protection.

    It's true, this has been known for a year.

    If your Windows is current, it was patched a long time ago.

    If you are running a pirate copy of Windows, switch to Linux.

    I could care less if I have no internet for a while. I went without it for 40 years no problem.
