Suspected Malware-Home Page Changes on it's own.

Have ran Norton AntiVirus. It's not picking up anything else. My homepage will change to some foreign page that I have no idea what it is. Computer is very slow. Attached is the log of hijackthis. Thanks for any help you can give.

Hi! Welcome to the forums.
My name is Scotty. I would be glad to take a look at your log and help you with solving any malware problems. HijackThis logs can take a while to research.
Please be patient.

Please make a uninstall list using HijackThis
To access the Uninstall Manager you would do the following:

1. Start HijackThis
2. Click on the Config button
3. Click on the Misc Tools button
4. Click on the Open Uninstall Manager button.
5. Click on the Save list... button and specify where you would like to save this file. When you press Save button a notepad will open with the contents of that file. Simply copy and paste the contents of that notepad here in a reply.

Scotty,

Thanks for getting back to me. :) This is a friend's computer that I'm trying to fix. She did not have any antivirus program on it that was up to date. I installed NortonAntivirus 2008 on it and it detected and cleared 20 viruses but is still very slow. It's a 3 year old comuter with and Celeron Processor and not much memory so I don't expect any speed records with it but it should still do better than taking 2-3 minutes to load a web page or application. I am trying to decide whether to just erase the hard drive and reload everything. If I do that is there still the chance that if it has malware on it that it would still be there even if I do that?

Thanks,

Terry

Re: Suspected Malware-Home Page Changes on it's own.

Unread postby Scotty » October 1st, 2008, 5:28 pm

Hi

I'm afraid I have unpleasant news for you. You have a Dangerous infection on this machine.
The infection is delivered by a Backdoor Trojan.
It allows outsiders COMPLETE access to every keystroke, account, and password you use while on this machine, and complete access to any other data present...
IF this computer has been used for any kind of important data, my best recommendation is to Disconnect from Internet, Re-Format the entire drive and re-install your Operating system and Applications.

We can likely clean the infected files off the computer, and if you wish we will attempt to do so, but we cannot be sure that the infection didn't do something to your system to reduce the system security. In that instance, even after removal of the infection, you could be subject to another attack or takeover as soon as you re-connect to the Internet.

The Decision Whether to ReFormat or Not should be based on:
  • The use of the computer - this is the primary factor in the decision whether to re-format and re-install, or just disinfect.
  • The variety of malware - this influences the decision on whether to re-format and re-install, or just disinfect.
If the Computer has been used for any important data, you are strongly advised to do the following, immediately:
  • Disconnect the infected computer from the internet and from any networked computers until the computer can be cleaned.
  • Back up all important data on the machine. Do not back up any Applications (programs). Those should be re-installed from the original source CDs or websites.
  • If you have ever used this computer for shopping, banking, or any transactions relating to your financial well being:
    Call all of your banks, credit card companies, and financial institutions, informing them that you may be a victim of identity theft, and to put a watch on your accounts or change all your account numbers.
  • From a clean computer, change ALL your online passwords -- for ISP login, email, banks, financial accounts, PayPal, eBay, online companies, and any online forums or groups you belong to.
  • DO NOT change passwords or do any transactions while using the infected computer because the attacker will get the new password and transaction information.
  • Take any other steps you think appropriate for an attempted identity theft.
While you are deciding whether to ReFormat and Re-Install, a useful link is here: http://www.dslreports.com/faq/10063
Please let me know what you decide.

:o Thanks for getting back to me so quick. I had decided that was what I was going to do with the computer anyhow and I had already backed up the information. I knew from previous experience not to back up the programs but to re-install. I told the owner of the computer this in unfortunately a good example of what happens if you don't keep the antivirus etc. up to date. I guess I won't need your assistance on anything else at this time but I am definitely keeping this website in my favorites and will recommend it to anyone with problems.
Many thanks again!
