ok one our websites has been performing horribly and our traffic and conversions have really taken a beating so with that said I did some extra digging in the Google index and ran across a site that was linking to our home page that we did not recognize. So when clicking the link from Google I get a slick 302 to a rotation of adult sites, when going direct no redirect. Tested with other SEs and not only is the referrring link redirecting the root domain 302s me to a rotation of adult sites. So the redirect only happens on my machine out of the 5 we have in office, happens on all Search Engines, and does not redirect if you go direct. Almost like its using the http_user_agent to decide whether or not to redirect.

I'm thinking my system has been hijacked and the attacker or virus is screwing with our SE traffic. Maybe a man in the middle attack. Don't know, need some guidance on this one.

I did a full Norton Scan and nothing was found, I ran kaspersky tdsskiller and nothing, so I will wait for your guidance on how to nip this redirect in the butt.

Thanks in the advance

Hello, Welcome to BleepingComputer.
I'm nasdaq and will be helping you.

If you can please print this topic it will make it easier for you to follow the instructions and complete all of the necessary steps.

Before suggesting any remedial tool I need to know more about your computer.

Please download and run this DDS Scanning Tool. Nothing will be deleted. It will just give me some additional information about your system.

  • Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links if you no longer have it available. Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the DDS icon, allow it to run.
  • A small box will open, with an explanation about the tool. No input is needed, the scan is running.
  • Notepad will open with the results.
  • Follow the instructions that pop up for posting the results.
Please note: You may have to disable any script protection running if the scan fails to run.

Please just paste the contents of the DDS.txt log in your next post. DO NOT attach the log.
