Default Half a million computers at risk to lose internet in July?

One of my friends sent this to me and I was wondering if anyone had heard about it?

Supposedly if your computer was infected with this DNSChanger Trojan you may have the internet shut off to that computer this summer. I was able to find something on the FBI site so I think it's real. I can't find anything saying it's a fake. So was just wondering if anyone else had heard of this?

I saw it on the news the other morning. They had a website you could go to that would allow you to scan your computer for the trojan. I don't remember what it was though. I'm just gonna cross my fingers lol.

As far as I know you can remove it though.
