Google search results are hijacked, re-directed to one of a wide range of search/advertising sites, including
Removed ads -MJB
I know this because I tried adding filters in the AdblockPlus Firefox add-on (which is where I copied them from to create the list above). This seems to work at first, but the malware/virus still forces the re-direct, it just cycles through those already blocked until it finds one that isn't, and opens it.
I can get around this by right-clicking the Google-hit title link, clicking "copy link location", then pasting it into the address window, but this is a pain. Plus it's annoying and disconcerting to know this virus/malware somehow got past ZoneAlarm and is now sitting somewhere on my computer with who knows what additional mischief still to come.
Is this a known problem with an available fix? If not, please notify me if/when any such fix becomes available!
