Virus gaga for google ads!

A new Trojan that hijacks Google text ads and replaces them with ads from a different provider has been picked up by BitDefender.

The antivirus company has identified the threat as Trojan.Qhost.WU which modifies the infected computer's host file, a local storage for domain name/IP address mappings.

The infected machine's browser then reads advertisements from a server at the replacement address rather than from Google.

>>>Gimme More!
