dialer
Last modified: Thursday, March 23, 2006 

A program that is often used to maliciously redirect Internet connections. When used in a malicious way, it disconnects the legitimate telephone connection used to connect to the Internet and re-connects via a premium rate number (1-900 numbers). Often, the first indication a user has of this activity is an extremely expensive phone bill, as the victim (account holder) is being charged for the amount of time connected to the premium rate number. Malicious dialer programs are a type of spyware that can install itself to your dial-up settings. [Adapted from Panda Software]
