Malicious URL Block http://3300cc.com/...

Recommended Posts

I have been fighting to remove some sort of malware/rootkit that my antivirus program (Avast!) is blocking.


Avast is constantly popping up a "Malicious URL Blocked" message.  The attached Capture.PNG is an image of the popup.


I have tried many tools like Combofix, MalwareBytes, MalwareBytes Anti Rootkit, OTL, Hijackthis etc.  I will include those logs.  Hopefully there is something in there useful to help identify the source of my problems.


Any assistance you can give would be much appreciated.

Can you zip up this file and attach to your reply C:\Users\Kevin\Desktop\ScanLogs\MBR.dat




Download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.


Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system (32 bit or 64 bit). If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.

  • Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press Scan button.
  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
  • The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply.

Excellent.... If all is ok with no issues here are some tips to reduce the potential for malware infection in the future:


Make proper use of your antivirus and firewall


Antivirus and Firewall programs are integral to your computer security. However, just having them installed isn't enough. The definitions of these programs are frequently updated to detect the latest malware, if you don't keep up with these updates then you'll be vulnerable to infection. Many antivirus and firewall programs have automatic update features, make use of those if you can. If your program doesn't, then get in the habit of routinely performing manual updates, because it's important.


You should keep your antivirus and firewall guard enabled at all times, NEVER turn them off unless there's a specific reason to do so. Also, regularly performing a full system scan with your antivirus program is a good idea to make sure you're system remains clean. Once a week should be adequate. You can set the scan to run during a time when you don't plan to use the computer and just leave it to complete on its own.


Install and use WinPatrol from here http://www.winpatrol.com/download.html  This will inform you of any attempted unauthorized changes to your system.


WinPatrol features explained here http://www.winpatrol.com/features.html


Go here http://www.filehippo.com/updatechecker/ run the FileHippo Update Checker, update all applications as suggested by the Update Checker. Ignore any Beta updates. (Use stand alone version, not a full install)

If Java or Adobe are updated please check under Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs, ensure any old versions are removed. <--- Very important


Use a safer web browser


Internet Explorer is not the most secure tool for browsing the web. It has been known to be very susceptible to infection, and there are a few good free alternatives:


FireFox http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/,


Opera http://www.opera.com/, and


Chrome http://www.google.com/chrome.


All of these are excellent faster, safer, more powerful and functional free alternatives to Internet Explorer. It's definitely worth the short period of adjustment to start using one of these. If you wish to continue using Internet Explorer, it would be a good idea to follow the tutorial here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/tutorial102.html which will help you to make IE MUCH safer.


These browser add-ons will help to make your browser safer:


Web of Trust warns you about risky websites that try to scam visitors, deliver malware or send spam. WOT's color-coded icons show you ratings for 21 million websites, helping you avoid the dangerous ones:


Available for Firefox and Internet Explorer.


Green to go,

Yellow for caution, and

Red to stop.



Available for Firefox only. NoScript helps to block malicious scripts and in general gives you much better control over what types of things webpages can do to your computer while you're browsing.


These are just a couple of the most popular add-ons, if you're interested in more, take a look at this article:



Here a couple of links by two security experts that will give some excellent tips and advice.


So how did I get infected in the first place by Tony Klein from here: http://www.spywareinfoforum.com/index.php?/topic/60955-so-how-did-i-get-infected-in-the-first-place/


How to prevent Malware by Miekiemoes from here: http://users.telenet.be/bluepatchy/miekiemoes/prevention.html


Finally this link http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/topic/38-free-antivirus-and-antispyware-software will give a comprehensive upto date list of free Security programs. To include - Antivirus, Antispyware, Firewall, Antimalware, Online scanners and rescue CD`s.


Don`t forget, the best form of defense is common sense. If you don`t recognize it, don`t open it. If something looks to good to be true, then it aint.


Let me know when its OK to close out your thread....


Take care,
