Hi everyone, I'm Tony and I'm new here. I've been here before to get help from other peoples' threads, but this time I need something on a personal basis.

Ok, here's the deal. I had recently (and stupidly) allowed a trojan on my system, which after reading descriptions I believe is a variant of Vundo. I might be mistaken. I have removed the heart of the problem, that much I am sure of. I have the following software installed on my computer, all of them have been used in my trek, and all are constantly updated to the newer versions (or newer definitions). My arsenal includes: AdAware, Hijack This (obviously), Malwarebyte's AntiMalware, McAfee (which is my staple, my antivirus), Registry Booster / SpyEraser (from Uniblue), SuperAntiSpyware (a new download), Spybot S&D, Comodo firewall and defense, and I have used ComboFix.

My computer has SpyBot's Teatimer, McAfee AV, and Comodo running as my active shields. I have also run Kaspersky, Eset's (NOD32), TrendMicro, and Symantec's online virus scans. As of now, the only thing that any of these programs finds is suspicious cookies, which I clean regularly.

Ok, here's the problem: The main trojan like I said, has been removed. My browser (IE) had been totally hijacked, and I could not navigate to any of the online scanners, and I usually had to try 7 - 10 times to get a page to load through all the popups and ads. ComboFix was a big help, and after that, I was able to get my system back to normal. I have run all of the above softwares daily and again, got nothing but cookies. I have run everything in normal and in Safe modes. For a while there weren't any problems, until my wife called something to my attention. She tells me that she was on her Myspace account, when all of a sudden, the browser took her off myspace and to a website like Premium-Antivirus-Scan.com which I know is a bogus spyware website. I kept the window open, so I could do some searches to find the cause and symptoms of this problem. I only found recommendations to use Malwarebyte's program, and I had no registry entries that matched the Vundo. Nothing under Micro/Win/CurrVer/Run (both under CurrentUser and LocalMachine).

I've run scans since then, but again, all I get are cookies. I thought that might have been an isolated incident, until today when the same thing happened, only this time it took her to <hxxp://sg10scanner.com/sg1/1/10219>. Incidentally this happened again while at Myspace. This clever little site's background image is a copy of the My Computer screen with flashing threats under all of the listed disk drives, and a fake popup screen. I wouldn't be THAT concerned about it, but the fact that it automatically took her off Myspace worries me that I am still infected. I thought it might be one of my browser helper objects, but nothing really looks suspicious. I am always on my task manager to see all the processes and services, but can't recognize anything. I might be overlooking something, so here I am seeking help.

I have read about Myspace's servers being hijacked in the past, but I couldn't find any evidence of it happening recently. My HijackThis log is below. I thank everyone in advance for taking a look. Again, the AV companies' online scanners find nothing, McAfee finds nothing, Spybot's Teatimer and Comodo's firewall were not triggered by the browser redirection to the bogus site. Nothing but cookies are found on my computer. All this leads me to believe that Myspace itself is the source of the problem, OR that I have something so new that none of the AV and antimalware companies are alert of it yet.

Here's my Hijack Log:

This log was taken while the bogus website was still up, I don't know if that helps.

Any help is greatly appreciated, and I am very thankful for sites like this with unselfish people offering assistance.

Thanks in advance,

Tony G.

I'm not trying to bump this message, I just wanted to add that I have uninstalled Java, and Flash, and scanned with SmitFraudFix. My IExplorer is at the highest security level. I've rebooted into Safe Mode again and scanned with all the above softwares with no avail. I've been searching for different virii and trojans, and have done laps around my registry. Not to mention cleaning it over and over, and searching manually for suspicious keys and entries. I'd also like to mention that I have had System Restore OFF this whole time, and have no saved restore points. Now, I haven't been redirected again, but my wife hasn't been on Myspace today either, so I dunno. I am starting to think the problem might be on Myspace's end, since the two occurences happened while my wife was fiddling with her pictures on Myspace. Hopefully it's just some nasty script or coding in one of those ads that is causing the prob, but that might just be wishful thinking.

Again Thx in advance!

Hello WolfBlitzer0908

Welcome to BleepingComputer :thumbup2:
========================

Please download DDS and save it to your desktop.
  • Disable any script blocking protection
  • Double click dds.scr to run the tool.
  • When done, DDS.txt will open.
  • Click Yes at the next prompt for Optional Scan.
  • Save both reports to your desktop.
---------------------------------------------------

Please include the contents of the following in your next reply:

DDS.txt

================
Download the GMER Rootkit Scanner. Unzip it to your Desktop.

Before scanning, make sure all other running programs are closed and no other actions like a scheduled antivirus scan will occur while the scan is being performed. Do not use your computer for anything else during the scan.

Double-click gmer.exe. The program will begin to run.

**Caution**
These types of scans can produce false positives. Do NOT take any action on any
"<--- ROOKIT" entries unless advised!

If possible rootkit activity is found, you will be asked if you would like to perform a full scan.
  • Click NO
  • In the right panel, you will see a bunch of boxes that have been checked ... leave everything checked and ensure the Show all box is un-checked.
  • Now click the Scan button.
    Once the scan is complete, you may receive another notice about rootkit activity.
  • Click OK.
  • GMER will produce a log. Click on the [Save..] button, and in the File name area, type in "GMER.txt"
  • Save it where you can easily find it, such as your desktop.
Post the contents of GMER.txt in your next reply.
Please do not pm for help, post it in the forums instead.

If I am helping you and have not responded for 48 hours please send me a pm as I don't always get notifications.

My help is always free, however, if you would like to make a donation to me for the help I have provided please click here Posted Image
