FBI Warns of Potential Computer Virus

Posted: Updated:

The FBI is warning people to check their computers now for a potential virus or risk losing their internet this summer.

Investigators say international hackers used an online advertising scam to install malicious software on half a million computers around the world.

According to the FBI, most people won't even realize there's a problem with their computers... until July 9,when you won't be able to connect to the internet anymore.

The FBI is now urging people to visit a website run by its security partner to determine if your computer is infected. It also walks you through how to fix the problem.
