Trojan.Qhost is Malwarebytes’ generic detection name for malware that modifies the Windows system’s hosts file.
Trojan.Qhost alters the hosts file as a means to redirect the user’s Internet traffic, for example to stop him from downloading security software or installing updates.
Malwarebytes protects users from Trojan.Qhost by using real-time protection.
Malwarebytes can detect and remove Trojan.Qhost without further user interaction.
If you were using a custom hosts file before infection, you may have to recreate it or restore from your backup.
You can use the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Nebula console to scan endpoints.
Choose the Scan + Quarantine option. Afterwards you can check the Detections page to see which threats were found.
On the Quarantine page you can see which threats were quarantined and restore them if necessary.
