i was/am infected...previously followed directions at Daniweb (thats how i found Malwarebytes) i am not noticing any problems except when i visit a wordpress site i regularly visit at which time malware blocks a redirection to a malicious site .....prior to malware i got hijacked and the "windows secure kit 2012" pop up.....

previously ran - windows malicious software tool - ATF Cleaner - GMER and mbam.........and i think mbam fixed it...apparently there was nothing to report in GMER

not sure if i am still infected or if it is wordpress sites as i have read about.

note: I do not know what peer2peer is......i assumed i dont have any

note: I could not find anything specific to "script blockers" in my AV program or mbam...i disconnected from internet and turned microsoft security essentials real time protection off prior to DDS scan........included is the DDS logs, I appreciate your time and my goal is to get this clean and include mbam pro to my defenses...

.As far as behavior It seemed in the beginning i had some internet issues like slow loading and even a disconnect once, and it seems to have been better and only at times seems to slow, but i am thinking it could be when mbam is updating..(?)...or somethng is running?.....or isp?..

overall i am not experiencing any problems with programs or the system itself that i have noticed.....One concern is recieving a notice "mbam successfully blocked access to a potentially malicious site...(and gives an ip)"...this occurs each time i go to a specific WordPress site,(which i understand was the primary target for this virus) is like a go to the site and it allows me to view but tries to redirect me to another site and I get the message.....this also occured on two of maybe 20 visits at another major site that should, I would think always updated and secure as possible......I havent done much surfing because of this issue so I cant be more informative....

Thanks again

Lets did deeper and see what we find.

Vista and Windows 7 users:

1. These tools MUST be run from the executable. (.exe) every time you run them

2. With Admin Rights (Right click, choose "Run as Administrator")

Download ComboFix from one of these locations:

Link 1

Link 2 If using this link, Right Click and select Save As.

* IMPORTANT !!! Save ComboFix.exe to your Desktop

  • Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools. Note: If you are having difficulty properly disabling your protective programs, or are unsure as to what programs need to be disabled, please refer to the information available through this link : Protective Programs
  • Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.
    Notes: Combofix will run without the Recovery Console installed. Skip the Recovery Console part if you're running Vista or Windows 7.
    Note: If you have XP SP3, use the XP SP2 package.
    If Vista or Windows 7, skip the Recovery Console part
  • As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.
  • Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.

**Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.


Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:


Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.

.....was behaving great as i was revisiting web sites i have saved for later reference...then i opened one and IE hung for a few seconds and the page didnt load and IE i tried it again and it loaded and i immediately scrolled to the bottom of the page and learned it was a WordPress site, then closed it and deleted the shortcut...(this was not the same wordpress site i suspect is an infected site)......After that It seemed a bit slow, but I cant really say because it may all be in my head at this point..and theres nothing serious or obvious to report....

-Should I be safe from being reinfected now from the same virus? is mbam able to block it now if i happen to come across it again?

-Should i run combofix again just in case?

heres the log from prior to the incident described above..thank you

Should I be safe from being reinfected now from the same virus? is mbam able to block it now if i happen to come across it again?
-Should i run combofix again just in case?

No program is going to stop 100% of everything bad.

You still need to be careful of sites you visit, emails you open or links you click on.

Good job thumbup.gif

The following will implement some cleanup procedures as well as reset System Restore points:

For XP:

  • Click START run
  • Now type ComboFix /Uninstall in the runbox and click OK. Note the space between the X and the /, it needs to be there.

For Vista / Windows 7

  • Click START Search
  • Now type ComboFix /Uninstall in the runbox and click OK. Note the space between the X and the /, it needs to be there.

Here's my usual all clean post

To be on the safe side, I would also change all my passwords.

This infection appears to have been cleaned, but as the malware could be configured to run any program a remote attacker requires, it's impossible to be 100% sure that any machine is clean.

Log looks good :D

  • Update your AntiVirus Software - It is imperative that you update your Antivirus software at least once a week
    (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your antivirus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.
  • Use a Firewall - I can not stress how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer.
    Without a firewall your computer is succeptible to being hacked and taken over.
    I am very serious about this and see it happen almost every day with my clients.
    Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly.

  • Securing Your Web Browser
    This paper will help you configure your web browser for safer internet surfing.
  • Using a secure browser plugin M86 SecureBrowsing makes it safe to search, surf and socialize online. This free browser plug-in displays security icons next to links on search engines and social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, so you'll know which pages are safe and which ones to avoid.
    •Free browser plug-in for Internet Explorer and Firefox
    •Real-time safety ratings
    •Ideal for Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn
  • JAVA Click this link and click on the Free JAVA Download
  • Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit regularly.
    This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer.
    If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site
    until there are no more critical updates.

Only run one Anti-Virus and Firewall program.

I would suggest you read:

PC Safety and Security--What Do I Need?.

How to Prevent Malware:

The full version of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware could have helped protect your computer against this threat.

We use different ways of protecting your computer(s):

  • Dynamically Blocks Malware Sites & Servers
  • Malware Execution Prevention

Save yourself the hassle and get protected.

PC seems to be running fine...Thanks for the expertise..

I just purchased mbam...You stated i should only use one AV program..i thought i read somewhere mbam is designed to work with AV?...(i could be wrong)..

so my question is should I turn off Microsoft security essentials? or even uninstall it?

and is windows firewall satisfactory?

thanks so much, cheers

MBAM is NOT a anti-virus program. It is a anti-malware/spyware program.

You need MBAM and a anti-virus program

I use Windows Firewall myself but everyone has the own choice.
