(CNN) - You be in danger of losing your internet access this summer.  Facebook says it will do what it can to warn you if you've been hit with the computer infection called 'DNS Changer.'

International hackers spread the infection through an online advertising scam to hundreds of thousands of users.

As a safeguard the FBI has set up a safety net months ago to prevent internet disruptions.  But that system will be shut down July 9th and infected users won't be able to connect to the internet.
