I recently got infected by this malware named websiteconfirmreq it peridocially redirects pages to spam. Googling has only turned up things I assume would infect me further if I install. Does anyone know how to remove this?

I would use the following 4 programs:-

Combofix
MalwareBytes
SuperAntiSpyware
and Rootalyzer

If Rootalyzer finds files that are hidden from Windows 32 then you will need to boot off of a Linux Live CD (Knoppix or Slax for example) to delete the offending files.

Despite its humble beginnings, phishing has come a long way since those first crudely constructed emails. Today, phishing sites can appear and disappear in the length of a coffee break, and it takes more than a little know-how to keep your clients secure.

MalwareBytes is free for non-commercial use as is SuperAntiSpyware. ComboFix and Rootalyzer are free anyway.

With a 're-direct', your first action should be to download TDSSKiller , extract and run the TDSSKiller.exe
