Hi.

I am trying to find out if I am infected by malware or it is an ISP (or DNS or similar) issue.

When I type a url into my browser, if the url does not go to a static page, port 3180 gets included in the URL. What I mean is that if for example i type:

www.example.com/start.html or www.example.com/start.html or the homepage of the website goes to a static page then no problem occurs.

However if the site does some dynamic redirection to determine or load the page I want, it attempts to find the content on port 3180. Eg. Wordpress site; www.example.com/wp-admin becomes www.example.com:3180/wp-admin. Here is an example for mozilla.com, which for them happens on the homepage. Most other sites (picasa,wordpress) it occurs when I try to get to a page, I need to be redirected to.

Browser Error

I have scanned my system using Norton 360 and also MBAM which said there are no infected items on my computer? I have also done an online scan of my ports uisng 'auditmypc.com' and my ports are clean (No I did not have to download any activex or plugins from auditmypc.). A quick scan of my firewall logs for Norton also show no suspicious behaviour to me.

Does anyone know of any malware with this behaviour I could look into further and confirm if that has infected my system? I do not have any problem with google or bing trying to direct me to 'bogus' websites when I do a query or any popup ads or notices.

Is there a way to find out if it is rather a traffic or connection issue (ISP or DNS issues) or malware?

Thanks

Download the following:

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.Download Link 1
Download Link 2
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.

  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
    For instructions with screenshots, please refer to the How to use Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Guide.
  • 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 definition 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. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.
  • Exit MBAM when done.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so MBAM can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.


SUPERAntiSpyware:

Please download and scan with SUPERAntiSpyware Free

  • Double-click SUPERAntiSypware.exe and use the default settings for installation.
  • An icon will be created on your desktop. Double-click that icon to launch the program.
  • If it will not start, go to Start > All Prgrams > SUPERAntiSpyware and click on Alternate Start.
  • If asked to update the program definitions, click "Yes". If not, update the definitions before scanning by selecting "Check for Updates". (If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here. Double-click on the hyperlink for Download Installer and save SASDEFINITIONS.EXE to your desktop. Then double-click on SASDEFINITIONS.EXE to install the definitions.)
  • In the Main Menu, click the Preferences... button.
  • Click the "General and Startup" tab, and under Start-up Options, make sure "Start SUPERAntiSpyware when Windows starts" box is unchecked.
  • Click the "Scanning Control" tab, and under Scanner Options, make sure the following are checked (leave all others unchecked):
    • Close browsers before scanning.
    • Scan for tracking cookies.
    • Terminate memory threats before quarantining.
  • Click the "Close" button to leave the control center screen and exit the program.
  • Do not run a scan just yet.
Reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".

Scan with SUPERAntiSpyware as follows:
  • Launch the program and back on the main screen, under "Scan for Harmful Software" click Scan your computer.
  • On the left, make sure you check C:\Fixed Drive.
  • On the right, under "Complete Scan", choose Perform Complete Scan and click "Next".
  • After the scan is complete, a Scan Summary box will appear with potentially harmful items that were detected. Click "OK".
  • Make sure everything has a checkmark next to it and click "Next".
  • A notification will appear that "Quarantine and Removal is Complete". Click "OK" and then click the "Finish" button to return to the main menu.
  • If asked if you want to reboot, click "Yes" and reboot normally.
  • To retrieve the removal information after reboot, launch SUPERAntispyware again.
    • Click Preferences, then click the Statistics/Logs tab.
    • Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log.

Hi cryptodan,

I had already used MBAM prior to posting the issue here and it had not found any malware. I will download the the other tools suggested and perform the scans and see if they find any malware.

However I just did a simple test after I saw junkbox complaining of a similar issue on the same ISP (MTN Ghana Mobile Broadband). I writing this using Wifi and so far using both Chrome + Firefox and the issue has not occurred with any of the browsers or on any site I have visited, including this forum.

This makes me very suspicious that there is an issue from the ISPs side (sorry I didn't do the Wifi test earlier) and I will be contacting them for help and support and to find out if other users are complaining.

I will update this soon as I can.

Take a look here: http://www.ehow.com/how_5062892_disable-pr...gs-firefox.html and see if there are any proxy settings in there.

You only did a quick scan for MBAM can you do a Full Scan?

I have found 2 more users on the same ISP experiencing the issue.

Another thing I observed is that when you click a link to redirects to a static page (PHP or HTML), for example, the eHow link below it doesn't occur.

Any link that is actually run by PHP (or some other script) to serve you a page, like navigating this forum, wordpress admin sections, etc bring up the error.

Example: Wordpress Site;

example.com/wp-admin becomes example.com:3180/wp-admin (Which Errors) but
example.com/wp-login.php which is what wp-admin shd actually run brings up the login page with no issue. Log in and getting redirected to the admin section brings uo the 3180 bug.

Still running the suggested tools will update.
