Hello all,

Thought I picked up TDSS, as I was getting occasional Google redirects to commerical but seemingly inane websites, plus the odd "You've won" popup. No issues with being blocked from any websites/AV/FW, etc. Malwarebytes, TDSSKiller and GMER weren't finding anything unusual, except a couple of PUMs that were at my direction. I had decided to wipe the system, but wanted to run a few more scans just in case I could find out what was going on -- Malwarwebytes is now picking up a trojan it is identifying as IPH.Trojan.Blueinit hiding in isaweblib.dll and a similar registry key under \CurrentVersion\Run.

I fully plan on wiping the system tomorrow (I will be stuck at my desk all day anyway), but would really like to know a little more about this infection, because I can't find reference to online. Could it be new, or has my Google-fu really degraded? If it is new and if there is any useful info I can get from my system for the community, I'd like to do that -- I've learned a lot while lurking.

GMER is running now, MB log will be below, DDS log will be attached.

We just recently added the detection to MBAM. Can i ask a favor and could you please pm me that file here or At the malwarebytes forum.

c:\documents and settings\Admin1\local settings\application data\advmapservices\isaweblib.dll

This is a new infection and our own custom name. I may be able to tell you more after i compare your file to the others i have.
