Search engines are redirecting me

Unread postby AussiePaul » June 20th, 2010, 6:51 am

Hi. I have noticed recently that when I click on a link in my search engine of choice (Google),most times, instead of being taken to the site I expect to be taken to, I am instead being taken to a different non related site. As an example if I do a Google search for "Rope splicing Guide". The top listing is to the site "w w w .samsonrope
.com/index.cfm?page=28" If I click on that listing the new page loads initially with this URL
"hxxp://vistanumbers.com/x2s/click?ou=hxxp%3A%2F

After some seconds another redirect occurs that ends up delivering me to this page
"hxxp://w w w.wisdomtips.com/?xcmpx=1085"

I can manually load the samson rope page so I know that it is not being redirected due to that page not being available.

I normally use Firefox as my browser but I have tested this in IE 6 and it is doing the same thing. I have tried to use yahoo.com.au search engine and the results are still the same.
Below are my Hijack this log and my Uninstall list logs.
Thank you for your assistance in this matter.
Kind regards,
Paul

Hi AussiePaul,
---------------------------------------------------------
Please Note Our Policy on the Use of P2P (Person to Person / Peer to Peer) file sharing programs
It is posted here: http://malwareremoval.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=33112
As a condition of receiving our help, I have included the P2P programs utorrent and LimeWire 5.5.8 in the removal instructions below, so we are not wasting our time.
If you have used these, you can be fairly confident this is a principal reason your computer is infected

It's really important, if you value your PC at all, to stay away from P2P file sharing programs, like utorrent, Bittorrent, Azureus, Limewire, Vuze.
Criminals have "planted" thousands upon thousands of infections in the "free" shared files. Some of the recent infections can turn your machine into a doorstop.
It's also very important to avoid any "cracks" or "Keygens" that allow unauthorized use of programs. Besides being illegal, these files also are loaded with "planted" malware.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Remove Programs Using Control Panel
From Start, Settings, Control Panel or Start, Control Panel, click Add/Remove Programs.
Highlight each Entry, as follows, one by one, if it exists, and choose Remove :
Spybot S&D
µTorrent
LimeWire 5.5.8

Take extra care in answering questions posed by any Uninstaller.
You can re-install Spybot after we are done, if you wish.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Run CKScanner
Download CKScanner from HERE
Important - Save it to your desktop.
Doubleclick CKScanner.exe and click Search For Files.
After a couple minutes or less, when the cursor hourglass disappears, click Save List To File.
A message box will verify the file saved.
Double-click the CKFiles.txt icon on your desktop and copy/paste the contents in your next reply.
------------------------------------------------------------
Please download the GMER Rootkit Scanner from Here.
  • XP : Double click the .exe file. If asked to allow gmer.sys driver to load, please consent
  • VISTA/Win7: Right click the .exe file and chose Run as Administrator. If asked to allow gmer.sys driver to load, please consent
  • If it gives you a warning about rootkit activity and asks if you want to run scan...click on NO
  • In the right panel, you will see several boxes that have been checked. Uncheck the following ...
    • IAT/EAT
    • Drives/Partition other than the System drive (which is typically C:\)
    • Show All (don't miss this one)
      See image below
      Image
  • Then click the Scan button & wait for it to finish
    **Caution** Rootkit scans often produce false positives. Do NOT take any action on any "<--- ROOKIT" entries
  • Once done click on the [Save..] button, and in the File name area, type in "Gmer.txt" or it will save as a .log file
  • Save it where you can easily find it, such as your desktop, and post it in your next reply
Note: Do not run any other programs while Gmer is running.

So we are looking for the results from CKFiles.txt and the Gmer log. Use separate posts if it's more convenient.

Due to a 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.
