I have a computer science project to do which is to create a Google Redirect Virus using any language or method.
Here is the information:
This virus is a browser hijack virus or search engine redirect virus. This virus is infecting thousands of new machines everyday and It is very hard to remove as it is bundled with many rootkits commonly known as TLD3 or Alureon Rootkits. These rootkits change your computer settings in such a way that when type Google’s web address in address bar of your web browser, you are not actually taken to Google but to a malicious webpage which looks exactly as Google. When you make a search, you’ll see results exactly like Google, but when you click on any of those results, you’ll be taken to a website you’re not supposed to visit.
Your Job is to create a similar virus so i can diagnose how it works and how to remove it. Dont worry its only for education purposes for my college class.
