Millions Of Internet Users May Be Without Internet

In the news, millions of people world wide had their computers infected by a DNS changing virus that effectively changed the website the viewer was trying to go to, into a malicious site.  The people who created the virus were arrested by the FBI, but that doesn’t change the fact that many people who were infected by it, have yet to do anything about it.  Here is a excerpt from the article:

“Millions of computer users across the world could be blocked off from the Internet as early as March 8 if the FBI follows through with plans to yank a series of servers originally installed to combat corruption.

Last year, authorities in Estonia apprehended six men believed responsible for creating a malicious computer script called the DNSChanger Trojan. Once set loose on the Web, the worm corrupted computers in upwards of 100 countries, including an estimated 500,000 in America alone. The US Federal Bureau of Investigation later stepped up by replacing the rogue Trojan with servers of their own in an attempt to remediate the damage, but the fix was only temporary. Now the FBI is expected to end use of those replacement servers as early as next month and, at that point, the Internet for millions could essentially be over.”

Minecraft – Adventures with TFLAT – Search for the Cove

I booted up Minecraft today to make a new episode.  The series starts off on the wrong foot and things appear to be going slow.  What will the next episode bring us?  My goal in this series is to find the cove, which will be in the next episode, and build a port of some sort.  Be it a Pirates port or what ever I can think of.  Life is too short to not enjoy.  Minecraft is one of my enjoyments.  Even if it doesn’t start off so good, it’s still a fun pass time.
