WASHINGTON (WKOW) – The FBI is warning Internet users to get their computer checked for viruses because its Internet safety program is ending in July.
The FBI set up a safety net months ago using government computers to prevent Internet disruptions for their infected users. The FBI is encouraging users to go to a website run by a security partner that lets consumers know if their computer is infected and how to fix the problem. After July 9, infected users won't be able to connect to the Internet.
