Your good name, our rogue servers

Online payment service CheckFree lost control of at least two of its domains on Tuesday in an attack that sent customers to servers run by a notorious crime gang believed to be based in Eastern Europe.
Reg reader Richard D. reported receiving a bogus secure sockets layer certificate when attempting to log in to his Mycheckfree.com account early Tuesday morning. On further examination, he discovered the site was mapping to 220.127.116.11. To confirm the redirection was an internet-wide problem, he checked the site using a server in another part of the US and got the same result.
"I managed to get through to a commercial customer support tech, and reported the problem," Richard wrote in an email sent early Tuesday morning. "He was not aware of any problem."
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
