Thousands of Australian internet users are expected to be knocked offline on Monday when the impact of a virus released a year ago will be felt. All users are advised to visit dns-ok.gov.au to check if their computers are infected. The virus, dubbed "DNSChanger", gave the hackers control over the computers, by changing internet access settings on infected computers. Until now those computers have been able to rely on dummy servers set up by the FBI to continue accessing the internet. The FBI will turn off those servers at 2 pm Australian time next Monday.
