    Default Browser Redirect

    I just have a quick, simple question today. Just now, my browser, Firefox 3.6.17, was randomly redirected to the address "thailand.needed4.info". I haven't been able to find any info on it, and I haven't been able to get it to happen again, but I wanted to see if anyone knew anything about it. Maybe I'm just overreacting and it was just an ad in a site that caused it? Malwarebytes didn't find anything, at least.

    Anyway, sorry if I'm just being paranoid, and thanks in advance for any responses.

    Did you do a full scan with malwarebytes? Not a quick scan

    I did do a quick scan. I'll do a full one now.

    I'm fine with using Firefox 3 so long as it's still supported. That's okay, right?

    Download and run Ccleaner - if its an odd occurrence, there may be something in the temp Internet files.

    Ccleaner will remove them.

    If you use java and flash, make sure both are up to date (and make sure you uninstall ALL previous versions). Earlier versions of both have vulnerabilities

    Okay, full scan with Malwarebytes (free version) didn't find anything either. Ran Cchat. Updated Firefox, which I was going to do anyway. Oh, it looks like my Java is out of date, though, and I seem to have two entries (Java 6 Update 23 and 24). I guess I'll delete them and install the latest version.

    Uninstall both first.

    Then extract this http://www.thewebatom.net/content/sc...lick.php?id=24

    Run it. Select the language and select remove old versions. And it'll remove the old entries of Java (after it uninstall the old versions)

    Then install update 26. Which is the latest at the mo

    Okay, I've done all that. I guess I'll just keep an eye on it now and make sure it was an isolated incident. Thanks everyone!
