I am an active Flickr member and today found a quick link on my Firefox toolbar that I did not add.  It was for signing out of Flickr.  I copied part of the link,and did a Google search and it took me to this page of PHP code. 

 

http://svn.symfony-project.com/plugins/lcOpenInviterPlugin/lib/extern/openInviter/plugins/flickr.plg.php

 

The term that was in the link that I searched was "magic_cookie."

 

What is the purpose of this code?  Thanks.

 

I copied the link location from the icon:  https://www.flickr.com/logout.gne?magic_cookie=4f7af1b300d0cf4a6346c3a95bd0c119787c373cfb66693f7de4f9adc2da008a

PHP is a wrapper for the Flickr API.

How to Create a Photo Gallery using the Flickr API

phpFlickr is a project by Dan Coulter. It is a class written in PHP which acts as a wrapper for Flickr's API. The files process the data provided by Flickr and return arrays in PHP, which we use to display our photos...

Why would this icon appear on my browser?  I didn't request it.

You could have added it by accident without knowing or it could have been bundled with some other software you downloaded also without you knowing about it.

Thanks.  I'm having other issues with this computer and have other threads going. 

 

UPDATE:  After running the above scans, I ran Nortons and it found this:

 

Updated: February 7, 2012 5:31:24 PM Type: Other, Worm Risk Impact: Medium Systems Affected: Windows 2000, Windows 7, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows NT, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, Windows XP Behavior

SecurityRisk.OrphanInf is a detection for autorun.inf files that no longer refer to a valid file on the compromised computer.

 

Since I have only had this computer running for two weeks, would you agree that it had been compromised?  Any way I can double check it to make sure it is clean before I start loading sensitive files on it?

Your DDS log(s) is posted here and you are already receiving help.

Your other topic is posted here and you are already receiving help.

Since you are now receiving help from the Malware Response Team, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Response Team member...nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log(s) you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the member assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process or make things worst which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

The Malware Response Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.

Thanks for your cooperation.
