NEAT SPYWARE!! – its bad but i loved it!

Posted by danblog on December 4, 2007 in General stuff |

hey all, well i aint posted for ages because im lazy but i jsut want to say this.

 Okay so background story, on of my mums friends (whos a farther) his son typed in a search on google and went off while it loaded, his dad walks past and sees the result full of porn turns the computer off and tells him he cant us pc because its broke.

 Naturally i went to sort it out 🙂

and frankly i loved the way it worked, now dont get me wrong but i love this kind of stuff Lol

What this thing does is no matter what you search on google it replaces your results with porn, so you get one result which is normal, it then shows a huge big red warning box telling you that google results chnage or something because of spyware with a link (which if you click gives you even more,.,…) and then pages of links to alsorts of nasty porn.

so being the clever sod i am i didnt even bother scanning for virus i just disabled every add-on in IE restarted it, and check google and i had nice child friendly (ish) results.

had a quick play figuring out which suspicious plugin it was (it is called Video somthing.) and then (becuase it shows the DLL name) did a quick search found it under C:/windows/system32/ deleted it and it was gone, just had to disable and enable it in ie to make the tag vanish and its gone!

 Im hoping i can retrieve it from my recycle bin so i can have a look at how it works, but this one just really tickled me and i loved it 😉

If anyone has this i may write a tutorial on how to remove it.
