I was on my computer and not sure but think i was video hacked. Computer got glitchy and a video of a guy stating he was a hacker and this is how he makes his money popped up on screen. I was able to close out before it ended. it seemed to be a three minute video, was looking for a possible ad placement. but could not scroll down. This guy was not shy had no cover.

 

I proceeded to close out everything scan the computer, with malewarebytes bit defender superantispyware. ccleaner, also changed passwords on the site i was on. and for the router. reset all browsers. and checked the processes but manually not sure if i should use a tool for that last one. there doesn't seem to be any issue with the computer but i do my banking on my home network and I did scan all computers in the house. 

 

Is this a new thing to watch for or was it an possible ad. can't find any info online about it. 

 

thanks so much for any input.

My first thought is that it was an ad for either a legit or rogue security program. Since you didn't watch the entire video...we may never

know if it had a happy or sad ending or whatever. :) Unless someone reading this has seen the video.

 

It would be a good idea to scan your computer for adware. Below are the instructions for using two of the best around for finding and removing adware.

If you had been using a script blocker such as NoScript then you would of either not seen the video or it could only appear if you had allowed adware

to be present on your computer. Adblock Plus is excellent for blocking most legit ad servers from displaying ads. Both are available as add-ons in Firefox.

If you use Google Chrome Adblock Plus is available and there are at least two script blockers available for Chrome.

 

Check for adware using AdwCleaner.

  • download AdwCleaner by Xplode and save to your Desktop.
  • Double-click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
    Vista/Windows 7/8 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
  • Click on the Scan button.
  • AdwCleaner will begin...be patient as the scan may take some time to complete.
  • After the scan has finished, click on the Report button...a logfile (AdwCleaner[R0].txt) will open in Notepad for review.
  • After reviewing the log, click on the Clean button.
  • Press OK when asked to close all programs and follow the onscreen prompts.
  • Press OK again to allow AdwCleaner to restart the computer and complete the removal process.
  • After rebooting, a logfile report (AdwCleaner[S0].txt) will open automatically.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that logfile in your next reply.
  • A copy of all logfiles are saved in the C:\AdwCleaner folder which was created when running the tool.
  • thisisujrt.gif Please download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.
  • Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.
  • Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".
  • The tool will open and start scanning your system.
  • Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
  • On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
  • Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message.

Good!    What JRT removed were some orphans left over from an online banking bho. You may have installed and uninstalled the bho Safe Money Plugin.

 

If there was any malicious intent of the video, it may be one of your security programs blocked it. There may even be a record of it blocking a

malicious attempt in a program's log. Otherwise, I would say your computer is clean.
