Thread: Qhost And Google, Seems To Be A Virus

  1. #1
    now this is a strange on, within the last 6 hours, all i have done is scrolled through the boards here and checked a few things out

    but now when i open IE i get this weird page and it states the following

    404 Error Page Not Found

    A message from Server Admin: Some people have reported arriving at our error page after typing in or clicking a link to a major search engine. After extensive research into the issue we have found that one of our server I.P. addresses has been targeted by a virus which you may have on your computer called "QHosts". This virus was made several months before we were allocated the server I.P. addresses we have now, and therefore we have no control over it (much to our dismay as it causes disruption to our servers on a regular basis, however it is gradually diminishing.) The Microsoft cumulative patch for this vulnerability is available here.

    We have provided our links page below which contains, amongst other things, hyperlinks to some major engines, routed thru our own server which is not affected by the virus, so they work Ok. You are welcome to use these links, if you want to, until your own computer is working properly.

    now i have tried sysmantech qhost removal tool and it finds nothing

    i have done a full virus check and nothing comes up, and my definition are 3/4/04
