Computer virus threatens online access this summer

UNDATED — Tens or even hundreds of thousands of computer users could be unable to get online this summer.

The FBI is warning all computer owners to check for a type of malware called "DNS Changer" that is similar to a virus.

PCs infected with DNS Changer were used by a group of hackers for fraud. Federal agents say they've caught those responsible.

But a temporary solution keeping the infected machines online will go away in July, and users won't be able to connect to the internet.
