    Default Malware MAY make it impossible for you to connect to the internet on Monday 7-1-9-12

    My ISP provided this link describing the malware that might knock you offline Monday. It has a link to test for it and, another to fix your computer if you are infected so you won't be affected come Monday.

    I am also placing a copy of this in Tech Support.

    Followed the links just out of curiosity, seemingly clicking on this one will tell you on the spot if infected or not..

    I must admit i was slightly skeptical until they provided this link

    It is a legitimate threat, and the links provided are government (FBI) provided information and solutions. F-Secure is Wild Blue's own anti virus, Wild Blue being one of the ViaSat companies that provide satellite internet. Aside from that, this malware has been on the news this week. I just want ot be sure no one on Rift is affected.
