Clicked a suspected keylogger link

Unread postby Entropy_ht4 » August 5th, 2008, 5:44 am

I was surfing the forums of a game I play and clicked a link that I thought was legit. When the page was displayed it said the page was disabled or whatever. Then to read on down, other people were saying it was a keylogger and have seen the same post on many other threads and the same reply that it was a keylogger. I have used my anti-virus that I use AVG 7.5 and found nothing. I just wanted to make sure before I logged on the game that my keys are fine and all so I started to look and found Hijack This and these forums. Please help! Here is my scan...

Hi Entropy_ht4

I see nothing bad there.

Let's run one scan to be sure:

Please make sure that all programs are closed when installing Java.

  1. Click here to visit Java's website.
  2. Scroll down to Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update 7. Click on Download.
  3. Select Windows from the drop-down list for Platform.
  4. Select Multi-language from the drop-down list for Language.
  5. Check (tick) I agree to the Java SE Runtime Environment 6 License Agreement box and click on Continue.
  6. Click on jre-6u7-windows-i586-p.exe link to download it and save this to a convenient location.
  7. Double click on jre-6u7-windows-i586-p.exe to install Java.
  8. After the Java installation has finished, please go to Kaspersky website and perform an online antivirus scan.
  9. Read through the requirements and privacy statement and click on Accept button.
  10. It will start downloading and installing the scanner and virus definitions. You will be prompted to install an application from Kaspersky. Click Run.
  11. When the downloads have finished, click on Settings.
  12. Make sure these boxes are checked (ticked). If they are not, please tick them and click on the Save button:
      Spyware, Adware, Dialers, and other potentially dangerous programs
      Archives
  13. Click on My Computer under Scan.
  14. Once the scan is complete, it will display the results. Click on View Scan Report.
  15. You will see a list of infected items there. Click on Save Report As....
  16. Save this report to a convenient place. Change the Files of type to Text file (.txt) before clicking on the Save button.
  17. Please post this log in your next reply along with a fresh HijackThis log.

Due to Lack of Response this topic is now closed.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Infected? Virus, malware, adware, ransomware, oh my! forum, include a fresh FRST log, and wait for a new helper.
