Internet site getting redirected/Jump

Unread postby gupster007 » September 20th, 2008, 8:50 pm

Hi, I think i have been infected by a malware even though a scan check through my McFee virus scan found nothing. The issue is that i cannot open up certain Internet sites and redirects/jumps to another site altogether. I had someone else use my computer but not sure what they have done or downloaded to cause the issue. The Hijack log is as below:

Hi gupster007,

I've had a look at your HijackThis log and can't see any sign of malware in it. This doesn't guarantee your machine is clean but that along with a clean McAfee scan is a very good sign.

Can you tell me what browser you are using when the problems occur, and give me one or two example sites that you experience the problem with?

Hi,

Thanks for having a look at this. I use internet explorer and the sites it won't allow me to go to are like ebay, hotmail, anything i try to link to via google search. It either comes up with something to the terms that it cannot display the contents of the page or goes to a re-directed site e.g. searchlink.com.

I have to use my work's computer to use any email or internet functions, so apologies in delay for response.

Hope you can help and much appreciated.

Hi Gurpreet,

It doesn't sound like malware, but we can do a couple of checks to try and be more sure. Can you download some tools and transfer them to your computer at home? If so, please download the following:

HijackThis Installer:
http://downloads.malwareremoval.com/HJTInstall.exe
RSIT:
http://images.malwareremoval.com/random/RSIT.exe
Dr Web CureIt:
ftp://ftp.drweb.com/pub/drweb/cureit/launch.exe
Blacklight:
ftp://ftp.f-secure.com/anti-virus/tools/fsbl.exe

When you have these tools copied onto your computer please run scans exactly as follows. Please ensure you take a copy of these instructions because they are important:

Scan with Blacklight:
  • Double click fsbl.exe to run it, choose I accept the agreement then press Scan
  • It will create the fsbl-xxxxxxx.log on your desktop containing a list of all items found.
  • Do not choose to rename any because legitimate items can also be present.
  • Exit Blacklight and post the contents of the log in your next reply.

Scan with Dr Web CureIt:
  • Double-click launch.exe to start the program.
  • Press Start and then OK to start the Express scan
  • The Express scan takes just a few moments to finish, if something is found, click Yes to cure it
  • Once the short scan has finished, Click Options->Change settings
  • Choose the Scan tab and UN-CHECK Heuristic analysis
  • Choose the Actions tab and make these changes:
    • Next to Infected objects select Report
    • Next to Incurable objects select Report
    • Next to Infected containers select Report
  • At the bottom-left, UN-CHECK Prompt on action, then press OK to close the settings box.
  • Note: These settings changes are IMPORTANT, please ensure you have made them before scanning
  • Then select Complete scan and press the green arrow to start the scan
  • When the scan is complete, click File-> Save report list, save the report to your desktop and close Dr Web CureIt

Install HijackThis:
Run the HijackThis installer HJTInstall.exe and follow the prompts.
After installing, HijackThis will open automatically, close the program for now.

Scan with RSIT:
  • Double click RSIT.exe to start the program, and click Continue at the disclaimer screen.
  • When the scan is complete, two text files will open - log.txt <- this one will be maximized and info.txt <-this one will be minimized
  • Make sure Format->Word Wrap is unchecked
  • Copy (Ctrl+A then Ctrl+C) and paste (Ctrl+V) the contents of log.txt and info.txt in your reply

Please transfer all the reports for posting in your next response, you should have:
Blacklight report
CureIt report
RSIT log.txt
RSIT info.txt

You won't need to produce a new HijackThis log as RSIT produces one for you.
If you have any difficulties please let me know.
