I did a google search for "Port 1112" when the page loaded an alert box popped up and said:

submarine.computas.com:443 uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is unknown.

(Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)


Then I searched for "explorer.exe port 1112" and an authentication box poped up saying:

A username and password are being requested by http://www.mssd.de. The site says: "ByPassword"


If you view http://www.mssd.de it redirects to some guys myspace page.

Anyone else get this effect? I use firefox 3 by the way.

I just got the Google search page.

Why are you searching for these phrases? Is it because you believe you have malware on your PC? This could explain the pop-ups and redirections.

I just happen to notice that port 1112 was in use and when I looked it up it seemed that explorer.exe was acting as a server. I was simply curious and wanted to know what it was used for. I assumed it had something to do with windows file sharing but I wasn't sure.

It seems though that the effects have stopped when I do a search for it.

Suggest you do an online scan using Kaspersky. Post back what it found.
