Thousands of people are at risk of finding they can’t use the internet after cyber criminals infected computers across the globe.
The issue came about after the gang created a piece of malware named DNSChanger, which infected computers and redirected them to malicious websites, making those behind it millions of dollars through ad hijacking.
Since then the FBI has continued to run the servers for a grace period to give computer users time to remove the infection from their machines.
But this period ends on Monday and anyone who has not removed the offending software by then will not be able to access the web.
About 6000 Australians affected by the malware will have no internet from 1400 AEST, the Australian Communications and Media Authority says.
Australians can go to http://dns-ok.gov.au/ to check if their computer is affected.
