Recently at my company, we have been experiencing intermittent search redirects when connected to our wireless network.
I say intermittent because many times, simply disconnecting and reconnecting to the wireless network will resolve the problem. Sometimes it will disappear for a user and then reappear.
When hardwired in, there are no redirect issues. I have run many scans on the machines that are experiencing these redirects and they all come out clean.
My understanding is that there could be an infected machine somewhere on the wireless network that is spreading this issue. But whoever this user may be, they have not stepped forward and complained about redirects themselves.
Alternatively, could it be residing somewhere on one of our servers (if so, why no hardwired redirects)?
My question is this: Is there any way that I could possibly track/trace where this thing is coming from? Scanning every single computer connected to the wireless network would not be an easy option for the 'higher ups' to accept at this point in time and Im stuck trying to play whack-a-mole in the meantime.
Any advice is appreciated, thank you!
