Browser hijacker ‘Bing.vc’ is around.

major-browsersA browser hijacking malware, Bing.vc is being packaged along with free softwares offered by Lavians. Lavians is a small software vendor that offers different types of softwares for free and for sale.

The malware installs itself into Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome and redirects users to unexpected sites.

Users are redirected to the bing.vc site which offers them a solution but trick them into paying for the software.

Uninstalling the application does not solve the problem as the file causing the redirection will remain on the system and windows registry entries created by the malware will still be there to keep the file running. To remove bing.vc, an infected user must remove the registry entries and clean up the browser’s shortcut target in the browser properties.
