Hello moderators, I am having this huge, annoying and frustrating problem with this virus/malware that has infected my router/modem which causes redirects to happen randomly, even while typing this it randomly redirects to that same site over and over, so I had to turn the internet off while typing this. The redirects are happening on all 3 pc's in our house, mine, my sisters and my dads, and even on my UC browser on my Lumia 620. I have even tried to reset my router and changed it's password, but still the redirects persist. I'm normally good with these virus and all the computer related problems but this is one problem whose solution I just can't figure out. I came to this forum cos it has good activity with trustworthy and helpful moderators. I really need to remove this virus/malware, please provide me a solution.

Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from Here

  • Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  • Once MBAM opens, when it says Your databases are out of date, click the Fix Now button.
  • Click the Settings tab at the top, and then in the left column, select Detections and Protections, and if not already checked place a checkmark in the selection box for Scan for rootkits.
  • Click the Scan tab at the top of the program window, select Threat Scan and click the Scan Now button.
  • If you receive a message that updates are available, click the Update Now button (the update will be downloaded, installed, and the scan will start).
  • The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
  • If potential threats are detected, ensure that Quarantine is selected as the Action for all the listed items, and click the Apply Actions button.
  • While still on the Scan tab, click the link for View detailed log, and in the window that opens click the Export button, select Text file (*.txt), and save the log to your Desktop.
  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can also be viewed by clicking the History tab and then selecting Application Logs.
POST THE LOG FOR MY REVIEW.

Note:
If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts.
Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process.
If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.

Hello Nasdaq, thanks for your reply, but I actually fixed it on my own 3 days after posting this. I did all the scans except the Farbar Scan, and found nothing on my computer. Than I went on to my sisters computer and did the same scans and found some malware there, so I deleted/quarantined all of it, till now I haven't seen any adultube.info redirects in any of our networks computers. Thanks for the help anyways, I will pm you if it comes back again.

It appears that this issue is resolved, therefore I am closing the topic. If that is not the case and you need or wish to continue with this topic, please send me or any Moderator a Personal Message (PM) that you would like this topic re-opened.
