My desktop computer was affected by the FBI virus. The screen shot that shows when your computer screen is locked has your IP address listed. I had backed up all my data on an external drive, tried to get the computer to reboot in safe mode and noting worked, so I threw out the computer and now just use my laptop, that I use wirelessly. I am afraid to hook up my old data cable to my laptop, as this malware knew my old IP address. Is the IP address unique to a computer or the data/router? Is it safe to use the old cable or do I need to do something to the computer or router (Verizon – Fios) to make it safe to use again? The wireless mode is a little slow.
IP address useable once computer infected by FBI virus?
