Under-Search.com Malware

Unread postby SashaGorelik » December 15th, 2008, 1:02 am

Hi.

I've been having a problem with my computer that has previously been mentioned by another person earlier.

My computer seems to have some form of malware installed. When I enter search text into a Google search form or a Yahoo search form, it opens the results in that window, and opens an additional tab in her browser. The additional tab seems to go through under-search.com then redirect to somewhere else (apparently at random).

The same behavior was seen on Internet Explorer 7, Firefox 3, and Google Chrome on the computer. Firefox and Chrome were both installed after the initial problem was discovered.

The following is my HiJackThis file:
