Marketplace Tech Report for Monday, July 9, 2012

Episode Teaser Image 
Episode Description 
Do you find yourself unable to get on the Internet this morning? If so, it could be due to a virus known as DNS Changer. It's the result of a crime group getting caught for redirecting computer traffic to their computers, and now the computers are getting shut down. Calling your Internet Service Provider should help. Plus, a chat with the author of the new book, "Year Zero," kind of a "Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy" meets all those lawsuits about Napster.

If you're having Internet trouble, blame the DNS Changer

Is a computer of yours other than the one you’re reading this on not connecting to the Internet this morning? Plus, aliens come to earth and they love Andy Gibb.
