To find out if you are impacted by this, check your McAfee DAT version.  Right-click the McAfee icon in the system tray at the bottom right of your desktop, and either: 1) select About, or 2) select Open BT NetProtect Plus and then click on the About link near the top right. Look for the DAT version. If it is 6807 or 6808 and you are unable to connect to the internet, you are likely to be affected.
