Hello!

I have some sort of malware that was disconnecting the internet and redirecting Google searches. I think I've fixed the internet part, but Google is still being hijacked. Might not be a huge issue, but I'm afraid this will lead to more malware.

I've followed the "Preparation Guide for use before posting a HijackThis Log" instructions and run the requested applications. Attached is my current HijackThis log:

Hello, wes37.
:thumbsup: to BleepingComputer.com

My name is Billy O'Neal and I will be helping you. (Billy or Bill is fine, if you like.)

I want to apologise that it has taken so long to get back to you. We on the HJT Team are working as fast as possible to get your log answered.

If you would still like help, please post a new HiJack This log below, as things may have changed on your system.

If you do not still need help, please let me know, so that I can move on to other users who still need help.

Please take note of the following:
  • While a HJT Team member is working with you, please refrain from making any changes to your computer.
  • Also, even if things appear to be running better, there is no guarantee that everything is finished. Please continue to check this forum post in order to ensure we get your system completely clean. We do not want to clean you part-way up, only to have the system re-infect itself. :)
  • If you do not understand any step(s) provided, please do not hesitate to ask before continuing. I would much rather clarify instructions or explain them differently than have something important broken.
  • Please reply using the Posted Image button in the lower left hand corner of your screen.
  • Old topics are closed after 3 days with no reply, and working topics are closed after 5 days. If for any reason you cannot complete instructions within that time, that's fine, just put a post here so that I know you're still here. We get a lot of people who simply leave, and if there is no contact for that amount of time I will have to assume you have "vanished" :).

Hello, wes37.

Sorry, I think I used "fast reply" above instead of "add reply"...this is just to let you know I've posted the HJT file above.

Shouldn't make any difference :thumbsup:

I throw that in because we get lots of users who post their logs as new topics by mistake. ;)

How is google being hijacked? What sort of hijack is displayed on the screen?

We need to upload a file for further inspection
  • Please go to this page.
  • Where it asks for the "Link to where the file was requested" copy and paste in
    http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=165258&view=findpost&p=937263
  • Where it says "Browse to the file you want to submit", copy and paste in
    C:\Program Files\PreSonus\1394AudioDriver_FireBox\FireBox.exe
  • Press the Send File button.

Billy,

Whenever I click on a Google link, it always redirects me to a random page. If I go back and forth I might get the right page on the 3rd or 4th click. Every link does this....even links to sites I trust.

BTW, the Presonus Firebox file is the software for my Presonus Firebox audio interface. I sent the file as you requested.

Thanks!
Wes

Hello, wes37.

It appears that file is clean ;)

Still not sure what's causing the redirects. Maybe this will give a better picture :thumbsup:

Billy,

When I run HostsXpert, I get the following message:

"Error: Cannot create file C:/Windows/System32/Drivers/ETC/Hosts"

Billy,

I followed all the steps in diabling "Tea Timer" including unchecking the "Resident "TeaTimer" active" box, but Tea Timer was not included in the "System Startup" list. I rebooted and ran HostsXpert as an Administrator and the same error message came up. I ran OTViewIt and here are the files, though nothing has changed in my hosts file.

Wes

Hello, wes37.

Please go to Start -> Run and type in "Notepad". Then press enter.

In notepad, paste in the following text:
# Copyright  1993-1999 Microsoft Corp.
#  
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#  
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
#  
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a "#" symbol.
#  
# For example:
#  
# 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
# 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host
#  
127.0.0.1 localhost
Save this TO YOUR C DRIVE as newhosts.txt. The path to the file once saved should be C:\newhosts.txt.

Close Notepad.

Now to to Start -> Run again and enter "notepad C:\newhosts.txt"

This should open the file you just created. If it does not, go back and try again until this works!
