The Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) says that in the beginning of 2012 some nameless, faceless hacker group performed a scam with online advertising. Its purpose was to infect computer worldwide. And the FBI says they were very successful.
The virus can turn off updates to antivirus programs and reprogram computers to “go rouge” by way of the DNS server.
Now, the FBI has set up a “safety net”. They believe the users of the internet may be infected with the virus left by the Boogeyman hackers and do not even know it. Those “infected” computers are putting other computers at risk simply by being allowed to connect to the internet.
“This is the future of what we will be doing,” said Eric Strom, a unit chief in the FBI’s Cyber Division. “Until there is a change in legal system, both inside and outside the United States, to get up to speed with the cyber problem, we will have to go down these paths, trail-blazing if you will, on these types of investigations.”
Well, starting July 9, 2012, the FBI will not allow any computer to connect to the internet unless they are registered with the FBI at a site they created:
According to the dcwg.org website, the FBI along with NASA-OIG and Estonian police arrested “operation Ghost Click” hackers called “Rove Digital”.
These Boogeyman operatives distributed DNS changing viruses called TDSS, Alureon, TidServ and TDL4.
• The intent was to alter user DNS settings
• Give false malicious answers by way of DNS servers
• Promote fake and dangerous products
According to the FBI, most users do not know their computers are “infected” with what they call “malicious malware” that may account for a significant slowdown of their web-surfing and disabled their personal firewalls.
570,000 computers are purported to be infected through an advantage in Microsoft Windows programs which is responsible for the installed malware.
A supposed court hearing empowers the FBI, through the Internet Systems Consortium, replace operating DNS servers.

Earlier this year, many members of the nameless, faceless hacker group called Anonymous were arrested along with members of Sabu’s Lulz Security (LuzSec).
LulzSec claimed responsibility for taking the CIA website offline. It also attacked Fox News, PBS, Sony, and a number of gamer sites. LulzSec claims to have hacked local InfraGard chapter sites, the organization affiliated with the FBI, and released the emails and passwords of a number of users of senate.gov.
However, this case also leaked out the information that the CIA funds hacker groups and that Anonymous and LuzSec are just another cover for the CIA and an excuse for the fear-mongering of Congress to pass Obama’s cybersecurity bill.
Whether or not the FBI will disconnect users from the internet over these scare-tactic remains to be seen.
The US government is notorious for committing false flag operations . A few of them are responsible for the deaths of thousands of Americans on our own soil.
Considering this fact, and the recent obsession with the Obama administration in censoring and completely controlling the internet, it appears as though we either disregard this threat by our government . . .
