Hijacked by Mixidjv30.ourtoolbar.com Redirect Virus – How to Remove?
The Mixidjv30.ourtoolbar.com (also known as MixiDJ V30 Community Toolbar) is an attack designed by cyber criminals and they are spreading the plug in throughout the Internet in an attempt to infect as many computers as possible. It is very similar to hijackers that redirected Internet users to Sirefef.gen!c, Mixidj.claro-search.com or delta search engine. The Mixidjv30.ourtoolbar.com virus is a browser hijack that redirects the users to the google.com/webhp site that resembles the Google search page. From there any search that is performed will take the user to a page that doesn’t contain any information relevant to what was searched. instead, users will be taken to pages that are packed full of advertisements and links that compensate the hackers each time they are clicked on. So, the hackers goal is to infect as many computers with this redirect virus and watch the money roll in as users click on the information contained on the “results” pages.
Now, one of the reasons they successfully trick many users is because the Mixidjv30.ourtoolbar.com redirect page looks just like the real Google page, so users see that familiar logo and don’t even think of the possibility of it being a different site. After a few searches not turning up the results that they would expect could cause some users to look into the details more, but someone that has limited online experience and knowledge might not ever notice there has been a change made and they will continue to click on the links and ads that earn the hackers money.
Unlike many computer attacks, the Mixidjv30.ourtoolbar.com redirect virus isn’t trying to crash the computer or steal information. They simply want the users to keep getting directed to these pages with the ads and receive clicks. They are focusing so much on sheer volume that the income that they earn from doing this is nonstop 24/7. It continues to roll into their accounts so they continue to spread this redirect virus across as many PC’s as possible.
