When: March 8th, 2012 is the proposed date for the USA.
What: Kill Switch will be used to shut down roughly 4 million infected computers in the U.S.
Why: FBI created a replacement internet system to support sick computers that were infected with a virus world wide, but, the court order that put that splint system in place expires March 8, causing an estimated half a million computers in the U.S. to go black.
A consumer report stated : “When you go to log on on the morning of the 8th, if you’re infected, you’re not going to be able to get to the Internet,” Colburn explained. “It’s almost like you’ve been cut off.”
