Brief Description 

    

StartPage.EH is a Trojan that changes the home page and several search options of the browser Internet Explorer.

StartPage.EH modifies the HOSTS file, in order not to allow the user to access several web sites. In addition, it goes memory resident and does not allow to save the changes made to the Windows Registry.

StartPage.EH does not spread automatically using its own means. It needs the attacking user's intervention in order to reach the affected computer. The means of transmission used include, among others, floppy disks, CD-ROMs, e-mail messages with attached files, Internet downloads, FTP, IRC channels, peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing networks, etc.
