Virus.Google Redirect Virus

It is a shame when criminal developers use functions PC users make use of on a daily basis as a platform for their divisive malware, as is the case with Virus.Google Redirect Virus. The virus redirects users’ Google search results to malicious websites and spyware distribution websites. Virus.Google Redirect Virus will sneak onto a PC, and once rooted and activated will make it nearly impossible for the user to use any search engine.

Virus.Google Redirect Virus blocks Google’s search listings and will show random pages which contain dubious listings and links from spammers and malware sites. In effect Google’s search results are hijacked, which makes it impossible for the user to conduct a search online.

What makes Virus.Google Redirect Virus even more dangerous is the fact that it can use up to 100% of the system’s resources, making the system nearly impossible to operate. Virus.Google Redirect Virus will also create a backdoor on the system which other types of malware will exploit for easy entry into the system.

After the user is redirected to a website unrelated to their initial search, some websites may use the user to generate fake traffic to boost their affiliate marketing payments, while others will try to trick the user into buying harmful rogue security tools such as Fast Windows Antivirus 2011 and Windows Necessary Firewall.

Another big problem with Virus.Google Redirect Virus is that it can hide from installed security tools. It will not be picked up by many security tools and thus the user may find it difficult to detect and remove Virus.Google Redirect Virus from the system. It does this by injecting itself into running memory processes and adding / deleting entries and values inside the registry, HOSTS file and DNS.

Some of the websites this virus redirects its victims to have been reported to include the following:

Clearask.com
Web-analytics.google.com
Brittaniasearch.com
Go.google.com

Virus.Google Redirect Virus will also hijack the browser to prevent the user from visiting certain security related websites and prevent the user from downloading malware removal applications.
