I seem to have contracted some sort of trojan or malware, or have some sort of DNS changer that I inadvertently installed... or somehow got on my system.
When browsing in any browser (i have used Safari, Chrome, and Firefox), i am often redirected to a chinese advertisement site (should be too suprising, as Ilive in China). At first, i thought it was the ISP that was redirecting, but after having experienced this issue over the past week at numerous locations, i'm pretty sure my machine has a problem that need to be figured out.
I have tried MacScan and DNSchanger removal tool. I have tried dumping the cash in the terminal. I have deleated my flash cookies and all browsing histlry/cache files. I've tried a few other things that I thought might work as I found them on older posts for similar issues. None of these have resolved the issue.
The only thing i can think that may have caused it is i was recently staying at a hotel and having issue with their internet. They sent an "IT" guy to fix it and he made some changes to the network settings (i wasn't paying close enough atention to what he was doing).... in the end, the internet never worked at that hotel and from that point forward, i've had this problem. I can't say there is cause and effect with that, but corrolation for sure.
The site i'm being directed to is: nfdnserror5.wo.com.cn:8080/issueunziped/baidunf120718/index1.jsp?sf=&UserUrl=ww w.facebook.com
I'm runing a MacBook pro 13"
Mac OSX 10.6.8
All my browsers are up to date.
Any ideas? Am I forgetting any important details?
