Modem hijacks or dialers is a program / applet, that when run on a user's computer, can act in two different ways, as follows:

1. It can change the Dial Up Networking settings to force the user to dial a specified number (usually a premium rate international call) unknown to the user. It erases the user's Internet Service Provider (ISP) number and replaces this number with it's own. This number is then used each time the user connects to the Internet instead of the ISP number.

2. It can force the computer to bypass Dial Up Networking settings altogether and dial to its pre-set number. This means that the Dial Up Networking settings that appear correct are in fact dialling an incorrect number when the user connects to the Internet.

Where do Diallers come from

Diallers come from visiting certain websites. These could be sites that are offering pirated software, adult websites or sites that have questionable content. The owners of these sites have the Dialler software integrated into their webpage code to automatically download and install on to a user's system.
