From the translated info from that German forum, and many other recent identical incidents, it seems highly likely that your hosts file has been hijacked with six rogue entries.
Combofix has cured it for some people, so I would recommend posting a description of the problem at BleepingComputer for guided assistance on resetting a default hosts file.

I want to thank everyone who took the time to reply to my problem. I have found and fixed the issue. Turns out that while I have been updating Java, the update process leaves behind a few files relating to old versions of Java v.6. A version of Blacole had imbedded itself in an old Java cache file from a few updates ago. After finally locating the virus and deleting out all the old Java files and directories, the problem has not resurfaced. thanks again...
This is the reason why I like to uninstall old versions, then use CCleaner to get rid of leftover stuff for the uninstalled app. Some apps are supposed to remove old versions before installing new versions, but just do not do a good job. The extra time this process takes is miniscule compared to the T/S time when something like this happens.
I'm glad you found and eliminated the problem.
Have a Great Day! Ted
