Have you guys heard about this trojan.qHosts trojan virus out there ? It's new, it's mean, and it's getting worse.
I've been following the threads at googleGuy, ever since I had a problem.
My googletoolbar stopped working - and then I couldn't reach google. It was weird, and I figured maybe google was down. A couple of days later, I still couldn't reach it - and my internet access was flaky....
I've been trying to get my site listed in google, so I was doing some research when I ran across some other people with the same problem - seems like the culprit is a trojan from some website(s) that exploits Internet explorer and creates a HOSTS file that overrides the IP address resolution for all the google sites. It also changed my DNS server.....
So today, I find some new posts - apparently there is a new version that the removal tools don't find, and this one hijacks all the search engines - yahoo, lycos, exactseek, etc...
Any clues on what sites might have this piece of work on them ?

You can remove the Trojan.Qhosts virus with MalwareBytes.org's AV software, I was shown this by one of my friends...
