Community Notice: Internet Armageddon July 9th

Thousands of New Zealanders with malware-infected computers may find they are unable to access the internet from July 9, based on a warning issued in Australia.
Check your computer via diagnostic link inside Stuff story.

Seems odd - I'd bet the FBI knows exactly which NZ computers are infected because each machine will be utilising the server about to be shut down for DNS resolution. Similarly ISP's will see the traffic going to the nominated IP address ranges.

Why not directly target those machines via their respective ISP's? After all the technology is proven. The FBI proved recently they were capable of closely scrutinising some computers in Coatesville, NZ from afar.
