    Yet the majority of our office is seeing the same thing

    Check the screenshot aswell, the header info has a 301 to Baidu

    You could answer the question for yourself by clicking the links you left behind. :D


    Ahh rocket science at its finest :cool:

    As I posted on your blog seems someone has a BHO implanted on your systems that redirects your browsers

    Tricky people out there who will prey on you if you do not protect your networks properly.

    Peace!

    Ummmmm ok well if you think your company was the only one that could be infected then you need to Google search

    zombie bot nets.

    I would suspect your computers wake up each night surf to a site click an adsense ad and then go back to sleep....

    all the while you have no clue.

    If there was a hijack occurring there would be nothing but 100% response that it is happening to others....

    Being as most are not seeing what you are, this then leads us full circle to your systems having been compromised as a possibility....

    You're not the first nor will you be the last....simply use a tool like registry booster and hijackthis to clean up your PCs' & or workstations.

    Sitting there protesting that it is something else could leave your company exposed.

    :(

    You actually think someone is capable of hijacking Yahoo??

    :eek:

    You couldn't even find a possible financial incentive for the largest b2b portal in Asia, (which by the way is teamed with your supposed victom)...to hijack the largest Portal in the US.

    Some teenagers think they know everything.....

    In reality most know jack, and are just too stubborn and full of themselves to admit their mistaken...

    Here is some light reading so you can understand why millions of people have BHOs installed and still know nothing ....

    We're done

    Peace!

    But it's not just people in our office seeing this, what part of that am I not making clear?

    Yeah Im sure it's possible. Heck last week they were ranking 'The Young and the Restless' no.1 for a search on 'Search Engine' so I'm sure it's certainly possible ;)

    One of the reasons I posted this, It appears to be that, but I asked on the end of the blog post that if anyone had any ideas feel free to share them. I see on another thread here that it's happening to altavista and babelfish aswell.

    Appears the chinese government may be up to something.

    Sorry you feel the need to research people, and sorry we aren't 'infected'.

    Thanks anyway, apprecaite you spent the time for me to tell you that :)

    P.S. It's not my blog

    Yes they are pissed we brought the Dalai Lama to the USA and now are hijacking our websites...

    http://uk.reuters.com/article/healthNewsMolt/idUKSYD1108720070612

    http://www.washingtontimes.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20071012/NATION/110120078/1001

    No need to research you... as I know you hype marketing tactics from sphinn all to well....

    As far as your not being 'infected'

    People walk around daily telling themselves they are not infected with a disease.......once the medical examiner submits the cause of death then there is no further argument needed...

    again a child thinking their invincible is nothing new....

    why would you be any different???

    Deleting subscription ;)

    Someone on that site mentioned that the blogger probably had spyware on the 30 machines.

    Nobody said they were hacked, my post title missed a question mark, but on the blog post i do ask for ideas, but once again you are not reading (i thought you unsubscribed)

    The Chinese Government seem to be have been redirecting the traffic, one of the reasons that the Yahoo only redirected when you add search to the domain, which is mentioned on the blogoscoped link above

    And yes, i believe that the chinese government redirected all these sites

    I had to stay to keep the insanity from being spread further.

    Also you'll do well to keep the literacy comments in check after what I am going to show you.

    Read the entire posting on your 2nd link Singapore

    http://www.nitibhan.com/perspective_20/2007/10/baidu-results-h.html

    It clearly states that the searcher was on Yahoo and searching for a book and when the results were returned he was taken to Baidu.

    This would indicate one of two scenarios

    1. Yahoo was hijacked (which by your own admission is not likely)

    2. The poster clicked a baidu listing by accident that was returned by Yahoo.

    This is the most likely scenario ...

    And remember

    reading is fundamental

    not

    reading is for the mentally challenged :rolleyes:
