Browser Backbutton Comandeered - Is this a bug, a virus?
9:00 am on May 22, 2013 (gmt 0)
I have recently found the backbutton in my browser goes to ExitJunction.com.
I have not downloaded nor installed this.
Is it a virus or malware? Where does this come from? Can it be removed? How do you remove it?
All help appreciated

Urk. Does it do it all the time, or only after you've visited certain pages? The back-button hijack via site code is old; a cursory lookup turns up articles going back several years. (Oldest I saw was 2009-- there's even a post or two here [webmasterworld.com]-- but needless to say I didn't look very carefully.)
If they've found a way to commandeer your back button full-time, this is something new and it's bad news. Er, worse news.

Thanks guys. It is not happening all the time, I will try to make a note of where and when next time and supply more information. :) Cheers
