SEP has the ability to combat homepage hijackers. When the homepage of a SEP client's browser has been redirected to an undesired site by a malicious infection, SEP will change the homepage as part of its remediation. As there is no way of determining what the computers original homepage was, a default of http://www.symantec.com/enterprise/security_response/index.jsp is used unless otherwise configured.
You can specify the URL to use as the home page when the managed Symantec Endpoint Protection client repairs a security risk that hijacked a browser home page. By default if a Security Risk has hijacked the default home page for your web browser, Symantec Endpoint Protection will change it to http://www.symantec.com/enterprise/security_response/index.jsp to protect you. You can change this setting in the Symantec Endpoint Protection Management (SEPM) console.
To accomplish this:
Login to the SEPM
Select the Policies button
Edit your Antivirus and Antispyware policy
Select Miscellaneous in the Antivirus and Antispyware Policy window
Under Internet Browser Protection set the URL to something of your preference
Click OK to save the settings.
