The Federal Bureau of Investigation is warning 76,901 computers in the United States could crash July 9 because of a potent malware called DNSChanged.
It was created by hackers from Estonia to redirect internet users to sites with advertisements. The hackers get profits from these ads and so far have earned $14 million dollars from the scam.
The FBI put up a safety net for U.S. computers, but that protection is coming down in July.
