Has anyone heard of "bigred.com"? A client has suddenly discovered that all
of its browser queries that do not resolve (www.rubbishcharacters.com for
e.g.) get diverted to the BigRed search engine web site. No one in the
company is aware of having installed anything that could have intentionally
have caused this effect for DNS failures. Anyone got any ideas what is going
on here? Is it a known problem? Viral or otherwise?
