It has been a very long time since a web browser
was overtaken by malware, but a few weeks ago we suddenly found Google rebranded
as something called 'Babylon Search". It was a persistent kind of redirect, done
with a clever registry hack (malware is nothing if it isn't clever), but not
impossible to clean and remove without damaging the rest of the computer system
Here's what we did:
For Internet Explorer, open up the Registry editor
and navigate to:
Right click on 'Tabs' > select 'modify data' and
delete the 'value data' > press OK to accept. Restart Internet Explorer to
complete the task.
For Firefox infections, go to Tools > manage
add-ons > check Extensions/Plugins > disable/delete 'Babylon' where ever
you see it. Next, Go Help > 'troubleshooting information' > in the top
right corner press the "reset firefox" button (ver. 14 or higher). That's all
there is to it!
