Hi,
My PC has somehow gotten infected with a piece of Malware that causes IE8 to redirect my personal security credential login to Ebay to another phishing site that is asking for all sorts of personal information as a "verification" to continue into Ebay. I have no idea how this got on my machine but I need help badly to get it off. Can anyone help me?

Thanks

Welcome to BC


The process of cleaning your computer may require you to temporarily disable some security programs. If you are using SpyBot Search and Destroy, please refer to Note 2 at the bottom of this page.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself.
  • Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen:
  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note:
-- If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

Note 2:
-- MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes (like Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere with the fix or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please disable such programs until disinfection is complete or permit them to allow the changes. To disable these programs, please view this topic: How To Temporarily Disable Your Anti-virus, Firewall And Anti-malware Programs

HI,

I followed the instructions and here is what the software log says as posted below. The hijack and redirect page still has not been resolved. IE8 continues to want to go to the same page. Is there something else that needs to be tried?

Thanks

The computer is now crashing during use and when in use IE8 is extremely slow. Whatever the infection is has completely bogged the system down.

Here are the results of the scans you requested. I noticed that there are cookies that the software says it has detected and deleted, it is not deleting them. I am getting the BSOD using IE8 sometimes at random it seems. If I dont use IE8 it doesn't crash.

Hi, I forgot to give you the results to the Dr. Web CureIt test :

Master Boot Record HDD1;;BackDoor.MaosBoot;Cured.;

This was performed in "Safe Mode" and eventhough the line above says "Cured", it is not cured.

Upon rebooting Windows detects new hardware and re-installs the virus over again.

Please copy and paste that into your next reply.

Run Root Repeal one more time
In the Root Repeal window, use your mouse and highlight C:\WINDOWS\system32\Drivers\tyansmb.sys
Next right mouse click on it and select *wipe file* option only then immediately reboot the computer and run a Malwarebytes scan

Hi,
I have completed the last instructions. I have tried signing in to eBay where I usually get the re-directed web page asking for my way too personal information....i now get a message that is inside of a web page with an eBay header with a colored page header bar with a message below that reads, "If you are seeing this page, your browser settings prevent you from automatically redirecting to a new URL. Please CLICK HERE to continue." I have not CLICKED HERE because I do not want to re-infect my machine if this page is part of the re-direct infected web page destination. Do you have any idea how to make this page go away and go to the normal sign in page that I would normally see?

The machine no longer seems bogged down. Behavior is such that I believe the infection is gone.....I'm gunshy and would like to see what you think about this message in the place of what was the infected re-direct credentials request page ....that used to be my normal sign in to eBay page.

Thanks for all your help!

Hey,

After going into IE8 OPTIONS I made sure that www.ebay.com was on the ALLOW list for "Sites Being Managed". Eventhough the eBay site is on the allow list .....this is what pops up when I enter my credentials to log in:

The browser you are using is rejecting cookies.


Here are a few steps you can take to get your browser to accept cookies.


1.
Try signing in again. If your browser asks you to accept cookies, choose "accept" or "continue."
2.
Perhaps your browser is not set to allow cookies. Learn how to change your browser's cookie settings.
3.
Make sure your computer system's date and time are current.
4.
Maybe your browser is out-of-date. Consider upgrading to the latest browser, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox.







For more information, learn about cookies.




Thanks!

In IE*, go to Tools>Internet Options and click on the Privacy tab
Make sure the slider is set to Medium
You also might want to check the settings in your firewall

You might also try posting in the Web Browsing/Email and Other Internet Applications forum
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/14/web-browsingemail-and-other-internet-applications/

I, personally prefer Firefox over IE8
