HijackThis log due to possible phishing attempt

Unread postby SheppeyRed » May 27th, 2008, 3:02 am

Hi all,

OK, I have been asked to verify my password for an online banking site every time I log on to my account. I've contacted the bank and they assure me that they would not do this - as I would expect. However, I get asked every time I log on even when entering the link manually for the bank and which i know is correct, hence I think I might have an issue.

I've done a HijackThis scan and here's the logfile:-

As an addendum, I have been having issues recently where my browser has issues accessing sites. The problem is evident in all 6 browsers I have installed.

I get a page cannot be found error the first 1-3 times I try to access a site but, after this, it then loads, apparently normally.

Don't know if it's linked to the apparent issue with my online bank but thought it might need adding.

Many thanks,

While we appreciate that you very likely posted at multiple forums in order to ensure a response, that only serves to tie up the time of multiple helpers who could be using that time to help someone else who also has problems. Although there are many forums that handle HijackThis logs, there are not so many helpers; most of us help out at several forums.

In addition, the results may not work out so well when you're following different instructions from different helpers. They may suggest different approaches for the same problem, all of which may be good; however, system conflicts may arise if different fixes for the same problem are applied simultaneously.

In the future, for your sake as well as ours, please refrain from requesting help from multiple forums. Choose one, and stick with that one until they've resolved your problem.
