"RocketTab Ads" Box on Google Pages
This section provides an example of 'RocketTab Ads' ads box embedded in Google search result pages. 'RocketTab Ads' could be related malware 'Tube Dimmer'.
Another symptom that could be related to "Tube Dimmer" malware is that
"RocketTab Ads" gets displayed on Google search result pages
based on my first-hand experience on an infected Windows 7 system.
1. On the infected Windows 7 system, I went to www.google.com with Firefox.
2. I did a search with "search deals by Injekt"
and saw a "RocketTab Ads" ad box displayed on top of the Google search result page:
3. The malware is well designed to hijack the Google
search result page, and embedded its ad box into the page.
It makes you believe that Google is displaying this ad box.
But it failed to actually display any ads in the ad box.
I guess this symptom is caused by "Tube Dimmer" malware, since it disappeared
when I removed "Tube Dimmer". But I don't have any proof.
