Seeing "Vimax" ads?
« on: Jan 16, 2009, 05:17:36 PM »
Numerous web sites have recently found every ad zone on their pages filledwith ads for Vimax, which is supposed to enlarge a certain body part.We don't run ads for stuff like that, and of course no one here could possibly need it anyway. :)


But there's malware floating around out there that hijacks yourcomputer's DNS settings and puts its own ads into your zones. Unlikeregular viruses, it can attack both PCs and Macs. It seems to oftencome with free video-processing software.


If it happens to you, rest assured that it's happening only in your Web browser and not to your readers. Here's what to do:


  * For Mac users: Apple's forums have info about a couple fixes in this thread
  * For PC users, several people suggest Trend Micro's free HijackThis tool.
The trouble with reality is that there's no background music.
