Malware Threat to Internet Tamed, Few Users lose Access

The Malware Monday is over now and the virus affected considerably few people, which are roughly 211,000 across the world. The hackers had planned to create a buzz by affecting millions of PCs on Monday.

Yesterday we had told you about the Malware Threat in an article where a lot of internet users were on the verge of losing their internet connection after at 12:01 a.m. on Monday, the FBI turned off Internet servers that were functioning as a temporary safety net to keep infected computers online for the past eight months.

However, a lot of users did also not believe this peril that they would lose access to the Internet just after midnight because of malware that took over computers around the world more than a year ago. But finally it was done and the servers were not renewed as per the Court order.

The outcome of the Malware peril was that as of Sunday night, there were around 41,800 users in the U.S. was out of surfing. As per the Internet World Statistics, an estimated 2.3 billion people around the world use the Internet, out of whom approximately 211,000 surfers have become the victim of the Malware.

So, is there any legal option for the victims to get damage? Probably no, because it’s known to nobody that who is responsible for the malware and so without a party to sue, whom, one will ask for damage. The government is also not liable as they actually took steps to help infected users by setting up the clean servers.
