Posted 03 May 2009 - 01:12 PM

I am working on a friends' Sony VGN-NR220E Laptop (Vista Home Premium) that seems to be infected with one of the more elusive virus/malwares that I've encountered in quite some time.

Here is what's happening... After doing a Google search for anything, when you click on a search result link, you can watch the address being redirected in the Address Bar in the following way...

It wll first redirect to a 'http://72.233.75.195/click.php?c=d69eea520704030f8d90d599cc00' address (yesterday, it would redirect to a 'http://216.xx.xx.xx/...' address first), for a split second, then to a couple of other random addresses before finally ending up at one of the following sites...

'http://77_1507648.admarketplace.com/'
'http://www.cowsurvey.com/'
'http://www.cowsurvey.com/?sub=1543079&...p;cid=402756090'
'http://poker.bodoglife.com/'
'http://find.mediariver.com/?ytt=ysprc20cov41&k=dogs'
'http://explaned.com/index.php?tracker=cD1w...Yg==&feed=2'
'http://www.videosurf.com/videos/the+office...%2D1421303BF5CD'
'http://shop.ebay.com/items/_W0QQ_nkwZdogsQ...QQ_fromZQQ_mdoZ'
'http://www.virtuaseeker.com/searchroom.php...customer_survey'

I seem to be seeing quite a few references to 'adMarketplace' when encountering these redirection issues.

This happens in both IE7 and Apple Safari. Firefox will just sit there for a few seconds, then simply pops back to the same screen full of search results (after doing a search for anything). I'm assuming Firefox handles Malicious Redirects in a different way than IE7 or Safari.

Also worth noting, I am completely unable to install SUPERAntiSpyware. It errors out, giving me the rather ridiculous "Vista is trying to diagnose and correct whatever problem is currently being encountered" error. Even in Safe Mode.

I also had to rename the actual MBAM executable to 'malware1.exe' in order to get it to run.

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide regarding this issue!

Here is the DDS.txt log...

============= FINISH: 18:03:36.05 ===============

At the beginning of this DDS log, I notice there are two AV's listed (Norton 360 & ESET NOD32). We should presently only have the ESET NOD32 AV 3.0 installed. The Norton 360 should have been completely uninstalled before the installation of the ESET. I do not see any 'Norton' or 'Symantec' folders in the Programs list or the 'Program Files' folder either. I do see a 'Symantec Lic NetConnect service' in Services that is set to 'Automatic' but is not started. Not entirely sure what's going on with this.

Thank you,
