Hi am looking for help on a google redirect malware.

When I am using google, at times when I click on a link it will redirect me to another search page such as ToSeeka. This started happening about a month ago and I haven't had the time to work on it until now.

I ran Hitman previously and it resolved some other virus problems but not the google redirect problem. It runs automatically periodically.

I downloaded MalwareBytes and RKill.

Thanks!

Welcome to BC :)

  • Download TDSSKiller.zip and extract TDSSKiller.exe to your desktop
  • Execute TDSSKiller.exe by doubleclicking on it.
  • Press Start Scan
  • If Malicious objects are found, ensure Cure is selected (it should be by default)
  • Click Continue then click Reboot now
  • Once complete, a log will be produced at the root drive which is typically C:\

    For example, C:\TDSSKiller.2.4.0.0_24.07.2010_13.10.52_log.txt
  • Attach that log, please.

I haven't been redirected for a few days, but for example if I search costco.com, when I click on the link to costco it brings me to a website that wants me to fill out a survey (not costco's website).

It seems to have a time period where it doesn't redirect, but then starts up again after a while.

I guess I forgot to mention it's a windows partition on a macbook pro, I don't know if that makes a difference.

I think the router is infected with a dns hijack. Can you give me the model number and manufacture of the router. We need to reset it.

Router is a Netgear WN3500L, but it is running a copy of DD-WRT.

There are multiple computers connected to this router, but my computer is the only one having these issues.

do you have a pretty secure password for the router login? I still would like to reset the router to be sure its not a dns hijack.

I reset the router last night and am still getting re-directed. The password is safe.

Download Combofix from this webpage: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix

**Note: It is important that it is saved directly to your desktop**

1. Close any open browsers.

2. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.

Double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
  • When finished, it will produce a report for you.
  • Please post the "C:\ComboFix.txt" .
Note:
Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall
