Redirect Malware on Google links using Firefox and WinXP

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I am a PC user, WinXP, Firefox. I would like to get some help from the users of this forum as It has been 3 days since I have been redirected to random websites each time I click on on a google link. Looking at few forums I now understand that it is a 'Redirect Malware'.

I ran a few scans with my antivirus 'Avira'. Useless.

Then I the did a scan, in a safe mode, via 'SuperAntispy' - nothing got fixed either.

Then I downlodaded FREE SuperAntispyware. Tried a few times to do a full scan:

Attempt # 1 (normal mode) - the scan froze before being fully complete - duration of the scan 6 hours, 56000 files scanned!

Attempt # 2 (normal mode) - the scan froze before being complete - duration of the scan 4 hours, 48,000 files scanned .

Attempt # 3 (normal mode) - After looking on few forums, I unchecked the DDA option in the Control Scanning section. I then ran another scan and it froze again after not being completed - duration of the scan 2 hours 48,000 fils scanned.

Attempt # 4 (normal mode) - Launched another scan before going to bed. I noticed in the morning that my scan froze again in the middle of the night - duration of the scan 7 hours, file scanned 49,000.

Attempt # 5(safe mode) - I just finished to scan my computer in Safe mode using Superantispyware, leaving the DDA option unchecked.

Results: the scan stopped after it scan aprox 16,000 files, and quarantined 69 viruses.... ;) So, I rebooted. Then I noticed that online NOTHING CHANGED! Sigh... ;(

So I will do an ultimate attempt with Superantispyware, on safe mode, but this time I will make sure the DDA option is checked.

Help please!

Hi Seth,

Thanks for your help. I did a full scan with SAS on safe mode. Here is the Scan log:

By the way I quarantined the 69 infected files from the scan in safe mode BUT the DDA option was unchecked. That was yeasterday afternoon.

However, I ran another scan yesterday evening but with the DDA option checked. It founds 40 intected files, and that's the scan log I posted above.

Not sure if this clarifiaction is helpful, but I thought I should tell you.

You're welcome.

The log helped a great deal, and I see what's going on now.

Unfortunately, I only have a minute to post right now, but I'll be back later with some suggestions.

Ok, I'm sneaking this in...

Some infections are in your System Restore folder. It's difficult for any antimalware program to remove those infections, as that folder is protected by Windows. I suggest you clear the restore points by disabling then enabling System Restore.

The other "infections" are cookies, and technically not threats. In fact, many (including myself) turn off cookie detection. This is SAS's official response in regards to cookies:

This subject has been the debate of many newsgroups and online forums. Cookies are simply text files stored on your hard drive and cannot themselves harm your computer in any way. Typically cookies are used to remember logins and keep track of user settings on web-sites.

Cookies can be used to track your movement on the Internet ONLY if a site is aware of the cookies and is designed to use the specific cookies. Because of their use in tracking, many feel that this constitutes spyware.

We do not consider cookies to be threats of anywhere near the same level of severity as actual malware threats that can steal real personal information, serve ads, or render a computer unusable.

SUPERAntiSpyware will detect tracking cookies as "Adware.Tracking Cookies" and you can choose to remove them or leave them on your system. You may turn off this feature in the Preferences -> Scanning Control tab of SUPERAntiSpyware should you not wish cookies to be scanned, detected and removed.

I'll be back later to discuss your scan time and DDA.

Hi Seth,

I am sorry I couldn't reply to you earlier. Thanks a lot for your messages.

So here is what I did:

1) I deleted the restore points following these instructions from Windows.com.

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Delete-a-restore-point

Although the instructions are for Windows Vista, I suspected this would still apply for the Windows XP version I am on.

2) Then, in order to make sure I really cleared these restore points I found another way to do it (precisely for Windows XP) on this link i.e. Disabled and enabled them.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310405

3) I restarted the computer in Safe mode and ran a scan with the DDA checked and "Scan tracking cookies" checked. Here is the scan

5) Finally, I am still redirected. Nothing changed unfortunately... ;(

What do you think of this scan?

Is there anyhthing else you can think of?

I guess, I will also check the link you posted to see if Customer Support Request and SAS can run diagnostics on my system.

Thanks,

R

While I am waiting for more instruction from you end Seth, I have also sent a full diagnostic to the SAS team following the instruction of your link.

You did clear the restore points successfully, and your complete scan time of 59 minutes is within range. Good job.

I suspect that if you re-enabled DDA, the scan time won't increase significantly. It seems as though your previous System restore points were giving DDA a problem.

Did you read the comments on cookies? Note that cookies are created as soon as you open web pages.

The Customer Support Request will allow the SAS team to find out why you're getting the redirects.

Hi Seth,

Thank you for you reply and you encouraging comment!

Yes I did read the note on the cookies. Next times I won't include them in the scan.

Is there anything else I can do in between, or should I let the SAS team get back to me?

I would also like to inform you and the SAS team of a few other types of symptoms:

1) My computer is a bit slower than it use to be.

2) Over the last 2 or 3 days I noticed that it took much more time to switch on the computer and get my windows desktop loaded. Similarly, the lack of speed is the same when I want to switch the computer off.

3) In fact, between yesterday and today I had to do a 'hard switch it off' (excuse my english on this one - I don't know the expression! ;) ) I mean switch off by pressing the ON/OFF button of my CPU. I know this is not good.

4) It just happened a 20 mins ago, when starting the computer, during he launching phase of Windows ( with the logo etc) my computer got stuck 3 times on the blue page where the mention 'Welcome' is displayed. Once again I had to reboot in hard 3 times.

5) Over the last two days, while surfing on the web, Firefox just randomly open a brand new web page on a random website. This occurred perhaps 3 times.

That's it you know everything. Let me know I can do anything else while waiting for the SAS team.

Thanks

R

Once SAS determines and rectifies the infection that's causing the redirects, we can address those issues if they continue.

Hi again Seth,

I am still waiting for the SAS team to get back to me. Over the week-end and especially the situation worsened a little more: the computer is slower, I can't swith it off unless in Hard, more pop up etc... This morning and had a recurrent warning from my Antivrus (i.e. Antivir) telling me that a Trojan needs to be quaratined ...

So I did another scan in safe mode (as you recommended, I didn't scan the cookies) ;)

Here is my Scan log:
