Security hijack


My dad had a very strange malware/ trojan that kept claiming he had various viruses etc. on his PC.

We found that http://forums.tomcoyote.org/lofiversion/index.php/t65317.html Gave perfect instructions to get rid of it.

Strangely the search for "thesecuritypage" on google came up with only one result, the above page! thesecuritypage was the page that the malware was causing IE to go to all the time as it's home page. Firefox wasn't affected! He is now listening to me about the fact that he is far too gullible.
