Google Redirect Virus makes use of a script that changes each search entry with a pre-defined URL which differs from the one you were supposed to find. A malicious browser hijacker corrupts your web browser and takes control over it. For instance, on Google, you will get the right list of links associated with the information you were searching for at first, but once you choose one of them and hit it, you will get rerouted to Yousearchpage.com, which is not related to what you looked for.
