What do I do if I am having the same pop up problem except it is on my iPod? I try to use safari to browse and I will get the "malicious code" pop up thing... The exact one you have been talking about! Thanks so much.

Hi and welcome to Bleeping Computer.

Sorry to hear that you are having a similar infection problem.

If you would, however, please start a separate forum posting to describe your particular situation and request for help.

This is to comply with Forum etiquette. It also helps ensure that all the advice given in this particular message stream is focused on helping ldaniels, and that all of the advice to be given in the separate message you post will be focused on helping you. (Makes for less confusion this way.)

Best Wishes.

Hello I've split you to your own topic here. You should be able to scan the ipod with your Antivirus by connectiong it to your PC and selecting the Ipod drive to scan.. Also you can run a FULL MBAM scan and it will scan all connected devices.

Next run MBAM (MalwareBytes):

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 FULL 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.

I and others are getting this due to not changing the default password on their router, so some process logs in and and changes the DNS to route through this server out in Russia ( I'm using DHCP with a linksys wrt54g, so changed all the IP values back to '0'. And I changed my router password. Seems to work, but have seen a few sites hang with 'google analytics' in the statusbar, so may still need to do a hard reset on the router.
