Looks if any supported browser has startpages, searchpages, bookmarks or history entries pointing to this domain.


IELinks:<partiallink(string)>[,advanced build parameters]




This command searches a list of browser start and search pages (at the time of this writing 41 different regisrty locations for Internet Explorer) for the URL specified. It also scans Domain and SearchList TCP/IP hijacks.

  1. The first parameter is a substring of the full URL. Needless to say, try to make this as clear as possible, avoid ambiguous host names on all cost (popular example would be to not specify simply gator.com, since this would also fit newsgator.com). Algo-Prefixes are supported after 1.5.2. AP PT
  2. The second parameter allows an advanced build parameter that would limit the detection to specified Spybot-S&D versions.

Scan Results

  • The registry value change for the start or search page to be changed to about:blank; or
  • A TCP/IP settings hijack.
