Hi,
I'm new to this forum and am seeking help regarding what appears to be a redirect virus involving clickover.cn. I've been experiencing problems over the last few weeks with certain pages not opening and erroring with "link broken" or "internet connection error." Last couple days, I've been noticing that my pages were being redirected to a random not related page. I've also noticed the clickover.cn in the address bar everytime, including when it errors to a connection error. I started researching and have had problems pulling up pages with tech forums and anti-virus programs. I was somehow able to download AVG through an undirect link but have not been able to run it do to a ".bin file missing error." I have somehow manage to stumble on to this forum without problems and noticed there are other people with the similar problems that does appear to be virus related. Please help!

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer.

Please subscribe to your topic so that you will be notified as soon as I post a reply, instead of you having to check the topic all of the time. This will allow you to get an email notification when I reply.

Lets take a look with Malwarebytes

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from here:
Malwarebytes
Please rename the file BEFORE downloading to zztoy.exe instead of mbam-setup.exe

MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.

Double Click zztoy.exe to install the application.
* Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
* Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Full Scan", then click Scan.
* The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
* Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
* When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart.(See Extra Note)
* The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
* Copy&Paste the entire MBAM report (even if it does not find anything) in your next reply

Extra Note:
If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove,you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts,click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process, if asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.


If Malwarebytes won't install or run

Some types of malware will disable MBAM and other security tools. If MBAM will not install, try renaming it. Right-click on the mbam-setup.exe file and change the .exe extension to .bat, .com, .pif, or .scr and then double-click on it to run.

If after installation, MBAM will not run, open the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder in Program Files, right-click on mbam.exe and change the .exe as noted above. Then double-click on it to run.

Thank you for your help!

An important side note: I got a little anxious last night and was somehow able to access yahoo answers and an undirect link to gurujim.com for some spyware removal instructions. I downloaded and ran Cleaner, CleanUp!, MalwareBytes, Spybot S&D, and Glary Utilities under safemode. I didn't see much result afterwards, in that I was still getting redirected with clickover.cn. However, today I am now able to access most pages including security and anti-virus programs, without problem, and I have not seen clickover.cn surface on any addresses.

I doubt the problem is over since the Malwarebytes I just ran found 5 more infected objects:

katrinuhhh,

I am sorry but I have bad news:

One or more of the identified infections is a backdoor trojan.

This allows hackers to remotely control your computer, steal critical system information and download and execute files.

I would counsel you to disconnect this PC from the Internet immediately. If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.

Though the trojan has been identified and can be killed, because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the OS. Please read these for more information:

How Do I Handle Possible Identity Theft, Internet Fraud, and CC Fraud?
When Should I Format, How Should I Reinstall

We can still clean this machine but I can't guarantee that it will be 100% secure afterwards. Let me know what you decide to do.
