Thousands Could Lose Internet Monday After Malware Attack

Wall Street Journal – ‎8 July 2012

Thousands of people whose computers were infected with malware more than a year ago faced the possibility of not being able to get online Monday….At 12:01 a.m. EDT, the Federal Bureau of Investigation planned to shut down the Internet servers set up as a temporary safety net to keep infected computers online for the past eight months. The court order the agency obtained to keep the servers running expired, and it wasn’t renewed.

The problem began when international hackers ran an online advertising scam to take control of more than 570,000 infected computers around the world. When the FBI went in to take down the hackers late last year, agents realized that if they turned off the malicious servers being used to control the computers, all the victims would lose their Internet service.

I have received a couple of emails from readers of this page about that and felt that.  Here is information from one of those emails:

Website to check if your computer is okay has further instructions if yours is infected.
Quick check at will state if you are or are not infected

I checked a couple of our computers, including a moment ago the one I am typing this on with the links above, and they were both fine.  It is too bad that such threats are out there.

The Bible warns:

1 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God.  (2 Timothy 3:1-4)

Destructive software is about people who love themselves and money, who are brutal as they care not how they may hurt others.

Two articles of possibly related interest may include the following:

The Ten Commandments Reflect Love, Breaking them is Evil Some feel that the ten commandments are a burden. Is that what Jesus, Paul, Peter, James, and John taught?
