Browser Hijacking and Security Cocnerns

By magilla_26 ·
Anyone notice the dramatic increase in browser hijackings? I recently was a victim, and now a co-worker is trying to deal with another hijacker.

Anyway, my question regards the Browser hijacking by "about:blank" -- at least that is the homepage that opens up. When your browser is hijacked, how safe or unsafe is it to conduct business online and submit credit card numbers online for payments? (I admit I am a bit paranoid about submitting credit card numbers online, but sometimes there isn't a realistic alternative.)

I am a bit worried too..But if there are enough of us AND we give air to our doubts, there will be good alternatives.

In Sweden you can buy online, and get a parcel you pay for at the post office.
