    So there's some malicious trojan that's been going around since last year, and now the FBI is warning that they'll be removing a 'safety net' they had instated to stop it. So run scans and make sure you're in the clear before July 9th, otherwise you could lose internet access.

    Here, the FBI set up this site which tells whether you have the trojan (by IP address I think). Green means good, red means bad.
