SPRINGFIELD, Mo - If you woke up this morning and couldn't get on the internet at home, you're not the only one. Hundreds of thousands of people could lose internet access today, if their computers are infected with malicious software.
If you caught it before today you could go to a number of websites and download a free software that would fix your problem, but many people probably don't know they're infected.
If your computer had been infected, when you typed in a web address in your browser, instead of taking you to that site, your computer would redirect you to a site that allowed hackers to access your personal information.
To fix the problem, you'll need to get on another computer in your house that is not infected or go to a local business and download software that will detect and remove the malicious software from your computer. The software is free and most computer places will help you detect and remove the malicious software for free.
