  • Question

  • I was infected Win32fPdfjsc.gen!A through a pdf file. I was able to clean it but I am afraid whatever virus or script that was included in the PDF is still infecting my computer.
    The behavior is as follows,

    In any browser i.e FireFox, IE, or Safari, the results from any Google search redirect to http://findy90 and then to 169.168.70.134 and then to some random web page advertisement.  In Firefox, disabling java script prevents the redirecting but to actually navigate to the link, you need to click in the address bar once and press go. Setting the security settings in IE to high also prevents this redirecting.

    What is interesting is that this redirecting is only happening with Google searches. Yahoo searches work fine.  Does anyone have an idea where to begin to find this script and stop it? Further virus scans do not find anything.
    Thx
    Peter
