Seems it is some type of file hosting site...p2p

 

Best to scan for adware and malware if that site is unknown to you and attempts are being made to access it without your permission.

Sites such as that host some of the worse malware installers.

 

Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from Here

Double-click mbam-setup-2.X.X.XXXX.exe to install the application (X's are the current version number).

  • 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  • Once MBAM opens, when it says Your databases are out of date, click the Fix Now button.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).
  • When MBAM is finished scanning it will display a screen that displays any malware that it has detected.
  • Click the Remove Selected button.
  • MBAM will now delete all of the files and registry keys and add them to the programs quarantine. When removing the files, MBAM may require a reboot in order to remove some of them. If it displays a message stating that it needs to reboot, please allow it to do so.
  • 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  REVIEW.

Try using RKill first and then run the MBAM scan again. It could be that MBAM 3.0 is having some issue, too. I've seen that a few times with the

recently released 3.0.

 

Please post the results of scans using the programs above.

 

Please download Rkill to your Desktop.

iExplore.exe (renamed rKill.exe): http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/rkill/dl/11/
 

§  Double-click on the Rkill desktop icon to run the tool.

§  If using Windows Vista, 7, 8 or 10 right-click on it and choose Run As Administrator.

§  black DOS box will briefly flash and then disappear. This is normal and indicates the tool ran successfully.

§  Do not reboot until instructed.

§  If the tool does not run from any of the links provided, please let me know.

If normal mode still doesn't work, run the tool from Safe Mode.

When the scan is done Notepad will open with rKill log.
Post it in your next reply.

NOTE. rKill.txt log will also be present on your desktop.

Allow Eset to quarantine all.

You don't need to access the quarantined files now.

 

Please run RKill and attempt to complete the MBAM scan. Do not reboot after running the RKill. Wait until MBAM has asked you to.

You've only completed one scan...Eset. If MBAM still won't complete after following my instructions for using RKill....continue

by running scans using AdwCleaner and Junkware Removal Tool.

There is no time limit on how long you take to complete the scans....but when malware is suspected....the sooner the better..

Condobloke....it is a file hosting site. But take a look at what talks to it. Obviously...it is hosting files used by malware along with legit ones.

Whatever is attempting to contact that site from koala's computer  is most likely malicious.
