Redirected to fake Google, Bing, Yahoo Search

Unread postby Schnelk » June 1st, 2010, 3:58 pm

Hello,

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide. As of this morning I am being redirected to fake google, bing and yahoo search pages in all browsers (IE, Firefox and Chrome). Pinging www.google.com, www.bing.com or search.yahoo.com returns the same IP (86.16.244.15) and there is a hosts file in my windows/system32/drivers/etc folder that is locked by rundll32.exe. At one point I killed the rundll32.exe process and verified entries for all of the above with the IP listed above. Deleting the file temporarily resolved my symptoms but they returned upon restart.

No other computers on my subnet are affected.

Here is are the relevant logfiles:

Hi Schnelk,

Welcome to the forum.

My nickname is deltalima and I will be helping you with your computer problems.

The logs can take some time to research, so please be patient with me.

Please be aware that removing Malware is a potentially hazardous undertaking. I will take care not to knowingly suggest courses of action that might damage your computer. However it is impossible for me to foresee all interactions that may happen between the software on your computer and those we'll use to clear you of infection, and I cannot guarantee the safety of your system. It is possible that we might encounter situations where the only recourse is to re-format and re-install your operating system, or to necessitate you taking your computer to a repair shop.


Please note the following:
  • I will working be on your Malware issues, this may or may not, solve other issues you have with your machine.
  • The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for this issue on this machine.
  • Please continue to review my answers until I tell you your machine appears to be clear. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.
  • If after 3 days you have not responded to this topic, it will be closed, and you will need to start a new one.
  • It's often worth reading through these instructions and printing them for ease of reference.
  • If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to say or ask!! It's better to be sure and safe than sorry.
  • Please reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.


Please let me know if this computer is used for business purposes.

Hi deltalima,

First off, thanks for replying to my message. In the intervening time I have discovered how this virus was loading itself at boot time and I have removed it.

Secondly, after seeing your question re: business computer I re-read the forum rules and I see that business computers are not supported by this forum (even in the case of a small enterprise like myself). Sorry to have wasted your time.

Please close this thread.

Keep up the good work!

Best Regards,
Steve
