Govomix.searchalgo.com Redirect

goMovix is a deceptive application claiming to improve Internet searches by displaying the most relevant search results. Initially, this functionality may seem legitimate and useful, however, goMovix is categorized as a browser hijacker and a potentially unwanted program (PUP). After stealthily infiltrating Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox, goMovix modifies browser settings and tracks users' Internet browsing activity without their consent. This browser hijacker assigns the aforementioned Internet browser new tab URL, homepage, and default search engine settings to gomovix.searchalgo.com. In addition, it installs a number of applications/browser extensions used to prevent users from rolling back these changes. This is done without users' permission. By continually causing unwanted browser redirects, goMovix significantly diminishes the Internet browsing experience. Users who search t...

Note that these messages are not legitimate. Browser blocking pop-ups, demanding payment of $300, 200 GBP, or 200 Euro fines (using Ukash, PaySafeCard or GreenDot MoneyPak) to unlock computers, are not associated with any legitimate authorities. The messages are created by cyber criminals with the intention of stealing money from unsuspecting Internet users. Paying fines demanded by these browser-blocking messages is equivalent to sending money directly to cyber criminals. Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Safari blocking messages are called ransomware viruses. Commonly, cyber criminals responsible for creating these scams, exploit the names of various authorities worldwide (For example, the FBI, EUR...

New JavaScript Threats Discovered in the Wild, Threaten to Take Control of PCs

JavaScript is still heavily used as a scripting language for interactive website effects. In fact, JavaScript is still number 8 on the Top 10 coding languages this year despite the fact that both JavaScript and Java, its proverbial big brother, are heavily leveraged by hackers to distribute malicious software and as Trojan attack vectors. It’s no secret that any active content solution can leave your PC vulnerable to attack and the two JavaScript-based exploits described below are no exception. Despite the potentially tragic consequences of infection by either of these malware campaigns, it’s worth pointing out that both are easily blocked with basic PC maintenance such as automatic updates and a current antivirus software solution. Recently, Threatpost reported that a flood of spam emails have been detected that contain a .JS attachment filled with obfuscated JavaScript code. Within this obfuscated code is a ...
