Another Fix For Unauthorized Google Redirects [Security]


We posted a solution for one of the causes of unauthorized Google redirects yesterday. These redirects can happen in one browser or multiple ones and are usually related to searches that the user performs in search engines such as Google. Yesterdays redirect was caused by a plugin that got installed on the host computer without the userís consent. This plugin did not appear in the list of installed plugins and the fix was to run the program Gooredfix to remove it from the computer system.
Todayís reason for an unauthorized redirect is a rootkit that is commonly known as Rootkit.Win32.TDSS. The problem with a rootkit is that many security applications do not detect it even if they are updated with the latest virus definitions.
