FBI May Shut Down Your Internet Access March 8th

Dees Illustration
Activist Post

This March 8th, the FBI is planning to unplug DNS servers it set up to help eliminate malware from over half of Fortune 500 companies and government agencies still infected in early 2012.

The change could potentially leave a great number of Internet users without access to the Web.

InfoWorld reports:
...the feds replaced the criminals' servers with clean ones that would push along traffic to its intended destination. Without the surrogate servers in place, infected PCs would have continued trying to send requests to aim at the now-unplugged rogue servers, resulting in DNS errors.
The malware, called DNSChanger Trojan, is said to illegally redirect traffic and prevent users from accessing the updates necessary to remove it. Without access to these critical patches, these large companies, government agencies, and home users are said to be more susceptible to hackers.

This prompted InfoWorld to wonder:
This fact does raise the question of why so many Fortune 500 companies and government agencies have failed to notice they have a problem, as they presumably have IT security professionals on staff who should be monitoring such incidents.

Those computers still infected with the Trojan will not be able to access the Internet after the FBI shuts down their temporary servers.

The feds received a court order in November, 2011 to replace the "rogue" servers with surrogate servers to operate "just long enough for companies and home users to remove DNSChanger malware from their machines."

Rod Rasmussen, president of Internet security company Internet ID, told Krebs on Security that there are still millions of PCs infected with DNSChanger. “At this rate, a lot of users are going to see their Internet break on March 8.”

A working group advising the FBI is said to be considering requesting an extension of the court order to give more time to users of infected machines to remove the malware.

Although this may indeed be a very real problem that Internet users must be vigilant to protect themselves from, depending on the government to provide servers when their own agencies are infected doesn't seem like a trustworthy solution.  Additionally, a previous private-government working group put together in 2009 to combat the Conficker Worm has accomplished very little as 3 million computers are still said to be infected.

These viruses are called Trojans because they are disguised as something friendly, enter computers, and then install malicious software.  Someone with a healthy distrust of the government may see the FBI's warning that millions will be cut off from the Internet as a Trojan Horse itself so that they may retain control over the new servers.

After all, if the FBI is controlling the "legitimate" servers, wouldn't they have access to all the traffic information of individual users and large corporations?

To ensure your computer is not infected please follow the instructions here.  And follow Krebs on Security for news updates pertaining to this story.

Big business rules this situation-not the government. If the internet is down for more than four hours for any one of those Fortune 500 companies there will be chaos.

You can't accurately process incoming and outgoing payments/transactions globally without proper net access. American businesses cannot bear losing any more money.

If it actually happens for any extended length of time I will be surprised.

But if the government shuts the internet down because they think Iran is "monitoring" us to get info? Regular American citizens will be cut off immediately for however long the government chooses when they cite honoring the NDAA "for our own protection."

I smell a false-flag in the works here. This isn't the first time I read about something big happening in March (something about negativity reaching its 'plateau' within the first two weeks of March 2012).

I've been thinking about the latest turn of events regarding the revelation by the US government that Israel was behind the bombings in Iran killing Iranian scientists, and now we have the bombings on Israeli diplomats that Israel has blamed on Iran.

Not that I believe Iran did these bombings, but what I think the game plan is now is that Israel is going to attack Iran in retaliation for Iran (supposedly) retaliating against Israel's bombing of their scientists. All the while Obama will act like he tried everything he could to calm down Israel, but that they just wouldn't listen to him.

Of course, this attack will pull the US into the conflict on the side of Israel, at which point Russia and China will be forced into the fray on the side of Iran -- *bingo* World War 3.

I imagine this March 8th thing will be the starting point for Israel's attack on Iran, so that the only news about the situation Americans would be privy to will be Obama holding an emergency press conference with a sorrowful and regretful look on his face while talking about the turn of events.

**If this is the plan, a word of advice for the planners if they or their associates are reading:

'Prepare yourselves for oblivion.'

Anonymous is nothing more than government agents fooling the masses of morons. THINK about it. THEY are laying the groundwork for cutting off the Internet by making claims of taking down government websites. This lays the foundation for total Internet Control. It's total BS! Isn't it obvious?

Anonymous said...

Yes it is obvious that they are attacking their own servers. It is called co-intellpro and it is their specialty. Military computing is light years ahead of what we are allowed to use. Read the Prophecies about Obam at Prophecies Org, there is definitely big trouble ahead for all!

The internet is probably the most liberating invention in history, even more liberating than firearms. Because of this, they won't stop until the internet is as useless as television.

Hmmmmm, interesting. Everyone knows that the FBI has been infiltrated with Jews of all sorts. Maybe somes of duel citezenship . One has to wonder" This year, Purim will be celebrated from sunset, March 7 until nightfall, March 8.

Over the last twenty years, some of the most egregious war crimes and
massacres committed
by—or on behalf of—the Israelis have occurred
during this holiday. It begs to wonder what they’ll be up to this Purim? Is the FBI helping to cover up what they know will come?

Ah yes Rick. But what can you helpless goy do? Not a thing.

I agree that anonymous is a govt. ploy to bring the hammer down on the internet. Just like Wikileaks was a ploy as well.

Article title is totally misleading. Nobody's internet access is being shutdown.

Here is what I know for sure - not from just this site and article, but my cumulative observations regarding all things of this matter:

1) The government is corrupt to all high hell. This we all know. We all agree. Even they know that we know and therefore...

2) Conspiracies are evident. I am not discrediting them. I am describing a mindset...so then....

3)Conspiracies are then derived about the conspiracies....In other words, for arguement's sake, let's say "anonymous" or "Wikileaks" is "conspiracy theory. Well to some people, these people are champions of the people - blue collar and grassroots combat against the secret government and corrupt media...but THEN...

4) If you want to go deeper, now the REAL conspiracy theorists say that that conspiracy theories are conspiracies!! - Alex Jones is a CIA operative, Julian Assange is a fall guy, and Anonymous is a CIA operation, etc etc., which brings us back to....

5) The governments which are supposed to protect us from conspiracies are conspiracies themselves, and any and everyone EXPOSING these conspiracies..are ALSO conspiracies, black-op and flase flag operations to provide us fake saviors which lead us into doom..which leads us into.....

6) Black-ops are merely cover-ups for a black-op operations, which are cover-ups for black-ops operatioons, which employ anti-black ops operations which are themselves black-op operations...SOOOOOOOOOO.....

7) SOOOO.. the moral of the story is.....

8) Nothing and no one can be trusted on any level and everyone is in on it, so I better buy non-Monsanto seeds, arm myself with weapons and prepare for the End of Days!! Because by PREPARING, the entire world will die, but since IIIIII.....I am ready, I will live 3 days longer than them. I WIN!!! ?????

9)....really?

10) Therefore, how do I know that YOU who tell me the government is a conspiracy, and also tell me that the conspiracy exposers are part of the conspiracy, aren't conspiracy agents yourselves, trying to tell me that the whistle-blowers of conspiracy is a conspiracy theory, and those of you who say THAT aren't a conspiracy to convince me the TRUE conspiracy is a false conspiracy..which is the REAL...conspiracy...unless that is in itself a conspiracy.....WOOOAH!..sooo therefore...

11) Me exposing this, makes me a savior...for now...until I am discredited and exposed as an agent working for the conspiracy to hide the conspiracy about the exposing of conspiracies, which makes ME a part of the copnspiracy...OH MY GOD...can it really go this deep??....

12)...um...no..because once it goes full circle, guess what?? Yes, you arrive at the same place that you left. Now wasn't that fun???...which MEANS....

13) I only created this up to the number 13, so that you would over-analyze that to mean I must be a 33rd degree Freemason Illuminati reptilian raped by Bill Gates to create the new version of Windows in which I shall control the world..since I will obviously make Linux illegal someday....DUH...

Yes, I am being facetious. I m asking us all, where do we draw the line? I agree. It's a mess. It's confusing. But this is what happens when you hire the Intellect as the CEO of your soul. It can only go on information and logic, but eventually, everything is logical and therefore, nothing is logical...go deeper...go beyond. Information wlll not get you out of this. We have lost touch with our higher intelligence which makes everything obvious, and clear as day. This is where we need to go. The Age of Intellect is over. Enter the Age of Higher Intelligence (not to be confused with government "intelligence"...which I think we all agree, is anything but intelligent...

I must agree with the sentiments of the above essay, meditation is the key. History is for those trying not to make the same mistakes, what we learn of the hear and now gives us the wisdom to make tomorrow, fuelled by dreams, drive and purpose.
