Trojan Blocks You from the Pirates Bay and Mininova – Troj/Qhost-AC

A new Trojan has been released into the wild and is like no other. This trojan edits the host file on Windows machines redirecting the Pirate Bay and Miniova website to localhost.

If you go onto one of these sites, it redirects you AND informs you that download is wrong. This trojan has appeared on many torrent sites so be aware!

The Trojan is called Troj/Qhost-AC.

If you have the trojan, you can read about the Host file in Windows here: CLICK ME

If anyone has any fixes, please post them in the comments.
