Hi,

I have a laptop with Windows 7 and IE8. I also run Norton 360 Premium Edition 4.0.

When I visited this website:

hXXp://www.serradinho.com

I was redirected to the following website, which displayed a fake virus warning:

http://www1.simplegoantivir.0ze.net/fhrpvn?rwj041mma=lungnZu1uDJ59qT5dXJpKGToKSP5tLWr6qQkZaT36qjwLmT3N%2BimJ%2BYlOPcs%2BDoqZ3MmZh8yquKGT6OXP3tOe3tXK3cuY1dqnc3VX1t2erKKbop6blaKZnKWZq4%2Fl5tjepadunpPY3M2qqZ%2BajePV2rHLp86no6fMaJpmzpPV5qaeo5yYmqOXpKqgnM3h39jnnGo5OSVodbc4%2BDJ0diO4dXP25fb5d7clWKS4ZPE29qq1NnL4NHI1pg%3D

I also got a JavaScript popup asking me to click OK to remove the viruses, after which I opened the Task manager and killed the IE process. I didnít get a warning from Norton about a virus or malware.

I didnít have this problem (the redirect) in the latest version of Firefox.

Then I switched JavaScript to ďPromptĒ in IE and visited the hXXp://www.serradinho.com again.
After clicking "No" to all JS load prompts the site loaded just fine without redirecting me.
After that I reloaded the site and started clicking "Yes" on the JS prompts and on the 3rd one
I saw in the IE taskbar that the browser was loading something from lshfwq.co.cc and then I was
redirected to the 0ze.net subdomain mentioned above.

The hXXp://www.serradinho.com is the only site this redirect is happening on, as far as I can tell.

I also did the following:

- I ran SpyBot and it didnít find anything.
- I downloaded and ran TDSSKiller.exe from Kaspersky, which didnít find anything either.
- I did a registry search for lshfwq.co.cc, but didnít find anything.
- I loaded the same site hXXp://www.serradinho.com, from another laptop with Windows 7 and Norton 30 Premium Edition 4.0, but with IE 9 instead of IE 8 and I didnít have the redirect problem.
- I did a quick scan Norton and didnít find anything either

Iím doing a full scan with Norton now, but this will take a few hours.

Is my computer infected or is the problem with hXXp://www.serradinho.com?

Hi John that link came up hot for me.

Next run MBAM (MalwareBytes):

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

As long as you do not redirect at other sites then yes..
It is possible that that sites link has been infected. I would avoid it.
This works clean

Thanks a lot for your help!

When I visited serradinho.com, it redirected to serradinho.com/Blog which
was doing the malicious redirect. I also got the same redirect problem from
one of the blog posts on the same blog. Are you saying that serradinho.com
was infected, but serradinho.com/Blog was not?

What exactly do you mean by "It is possible that that sites link has been infected."?



Thanks again!

It's possible that their page has been attacked and its infected as your link caused my AV fits. The blog link I posted was ok.
That said I think you should post a DDS log and be certain you haven't contracted a rootkit we can't see..

Please go here....
Preparation Guide ,do steps 6 - 9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9,which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
If Gmer won't run,skip it and move on.
Let me know if that went well.

It's not just that site i'm getting it the last 2 days from a google powered search.
and it's more than one site hardqd-holder.0ze.net, simplegoantivir.0ze.net, bestps-master.0ze.net
I'm guessing it's an advert that is infected.

I've tried 0.0.0.0 *0ze.net in the host file but it doesn't stop it. and usually take taskman 2-3 kills to stop it.

You have a DNS hiljacker in your system. We can possibly stop it here but I prefer we be sure that if they injected something into a site they didn't inject it onto your PC.
