I received a Norton 360 alert that an intrustion attempt was blocked. The intrusion attempt appears to have been from my own computer. I have the alert summary saved as a screen shot. I have run a thorough scan with Norton 360, a thorough Malwarebytes Anti-Malware scan [which found nothing], and I have run Combofix. I am unsure whether I have removed whatever caused this problem, or if I am understanding the threat correctly. One computer expert who looked at the Alert Summary was concerned that it is a compromised iexplore.com. The attack was resulted from \DEVICE\HARDDISKVOLUME1\PROGRAMFILES\INTERNETEXPLORER\IEXPLORE.EXE

I noticed my original post was "edited" because no log was posted, but the message directly above the message says don't post Combofix logs until asked. And that any posts containing CF logs will be ignored. I hope I did not violate protocol.

Heloa s you have run ComboFix. Please go here....
Preparation Guide ,do steps 6 - 9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic from step 9.
If Gmer won't run,skip it and move on. Include your ComboFix log.
Let me know if that went well.

I have done what you asked. My post is entitled "Follow up after Norton Security Alert RE: Neosplot".
If you have any interest in the Norton 360 Security Alert I can post that as a PDF if that is permissible [or jpg].
Thanks.

Looks good.
Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
