Information about DNSChanger Trojans (the 'redirect virus')
It pays to read as widely as possible. I came across an excellent blog from 2008 by Craig Schmugar in McAfee Blog Central which explains what DNSChanger Trojans are and what they do. There is a link in there, to a CNET report, which no longer works, which is a pity.
If anyone is still baffled by the symptoms of the 'redirect virus' you might like to read this blog.
btw, I notice that there have been three McAfee DAT updates in rapid succession over the weekend. Fingers crossed that one of them has the fix in it.
