Internet Doomsday Virus: Why The U.S. Needs To Beef Up Cyber Security


The so called “Internet Doomsday” is set to hit hundreds of thousands of computer users all over the world next week thanks to the DNSChanger virus. On Monday, computers still infected with the malware won’t be able to access the internet. That means there will be no access to email, no access to Facebook or Twitter and, worst of all, no access to PolicyMic!

Congress is currently reviewing President Obama’s 2013 budget, in which it calls for a 10-year process of cutting $487 billion from the defense budget. The Pentagon stands to lose more money in a half-trillion dollar trigger cut thanks to the failure of lawmakers to agree on a long-term deficit reduction plan.
