Description of Google Redirect Virus and consequences of its residing on your PC
Google Redirect Virus primarily targets Google searches. The infection is aimed at intercepting user’s quires as made in the said search engine and/or to block it and replace with alternate, potentially misleading website.
The idea of the scam is on the surface as users are forced to visit pages the hackers are interested in as they get paid for every visiting of such sites by means of redirection. Naturally those who decide for promoting their websites in such a way are unlikely to offer a trustworthy and safe content, so that is why you need to get rid of Google Redirect Virus at the earliest opportunity.
The virus is also known to be a modification of a rootkit, namely TDSS or Alureon rootkit. A rootkit infection does not attach its body to any particular program, including web-browser, so that makes no sense to cure browsers, as long as the infection is deep in the memory of a PC concerned and can corrupt any software.
