FBI tells the public to call their ISP for help
If your call center volumes go up today...
The fine people at the FBI are recommending people call their ISP for home computer technical support, even though most ISPs don't sell home computers, operating system software or application software.
http://www.fbi.gov/page2/june07/botnet061307.htm First, if you believe your computer has been compromised, do not call the FBI directly. You should contact your Internet service provider. They can help you determine if your computer has been infected, and what steps to take to restore it. We are not in a position to provide technical assistance.
BTW, 1 million compromised computers is probably a low estimate.
