Spazbox Browser Hijacker Information

Category: Browser Hijacker
Advice: Remove
Risk: Elevated Risk Elevated threats are usually threats that fall into the range of adware in which data about a user's habits are tracked and sent back to a server for analysis without your consent or knowledge.
Description: Spazbox is a search and homepage hijacker.

The symptom that identifies the Spazbox or a close variation is that Spazbox.net keeps appearing in the address bar; in the background you get popups; plus your antivirus software keeps telling you your system has been infected by a trojan. Spazbox is a browser hijack program - it that takes over your page, and keeps changing it back. It's purpose is to show you advertising, or flog you an over-priced piece of software to fix the issue. On a more sinister note, it can download other programs, such as Trojans and other sneaky tools to take over your PC or compromise your security (it uses the same regsrv32.exe trick, see below, as the virus DDoS-Apbot@MM).

Hijacks your home page to http://clicks.spazbox.net/mt.html.
