Problem: Malicious website blocked, inbound, due to svchost.exe


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I have a problem with different websites (didn´t check, where the IPs are actually located) being blocked

by malwarebytes (svchost.exe). Have already tried some stuff, but the problem still shows, although ordinary virus and rootkit-scans are negative. But my IT-skills are by far not good enough for trying further without advice. I would really appreciate some help. Thank you!

Hello,
    
 
They call me TwinHeadedEagle around here, and I'll be working with you.
 
    
 
    
Before we start please read and note the following:
    
Limit your internet access to posting here, some infections just wait to steal typed-in passwords.
Please be patient. I know it is frustrating when your PC isn't working properly, but malware removal takes time.
Don't run any scripts or tools on your own, unsupervised usage may cause more harm than good.
Do not paste the logs in your posts, attachments make my work easier. There is a Attach Files option below which you can use to attach your reports. Always attach reports from all tools.
Stay with me to the end, the absence of symptoms doesn't mean that your machine is fully operational.
Note that we may live in totally different time zones, what may cause some delays between answers.
Do not ask for help for your business PC. Companies are making revenue via computers, so it is good thing to pay someone to repair it.
If I don't hear from you within 3 days from this initial or any subsequent post, then this thread will be closed.
    
icon_idea.gif I can't foresee everything, so if anything unexpected happens, please stop and inform me!
icon_idea.gif There are no silly questions. Never be afraid to ask if in doubt!
 
 
 
 
P2P/Piracy Warning:

  • If you're using Peer 2 Peer software such as uTorrent, BitTorrent or similar you must either fully uninstall them or completely disable them from running while being assisted here.

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.
 
Note: You need to run the version compatibale with your system. 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 attach it to your reply.
  • The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply.

FRST.gif Fix with Farbar Recovery Scan Tool
 

icon_exclaim.gif This fix was created for this user for use on that particular machine. icon_exclaim.gif
icon_exclaim.gif Running it on another one may cause damage and render the system unstable. icon_exclaim.gif

 
Download attached fixlist.txt file and save it to the Desktop:
 
Both files, FRST and fixlist.txt have to be in the same location or the fix will not work!

  • Right-click on FRST.gif icon and select RunAsAdmin.jpg Run as Administrator to start the tool.
    (XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File).
  • Press the Fix button just once and wait.
  • If for some reason the tool needs a restart, please make sure you let the system restart normally. After that let the tool complete its run.
  • When finished FRST will generate a log on the Desktop, called Fixlog.txt.

Please attach it to your reply.

That was what I meant with "tried some stuff". It was not the smartest thing, I know.

I also had an Adwcleaner-run yesterday.

So both logs are attached.

In addition I attach the Adwcleaner run from just a few minutes ago.

Plus the Fixlog.

Sorry if my actions yesterday make it more difficult for you... I will not do something like

this again without assistance or really knowing what I´m doing... hope I did not destroy 

something.

Sorry to step in but please post your MBAM protection logs from the past couple of days. Inbound IP blocks are not an infection and typically not much one can do to stop them except ensure the firewall is working well and if wanted specifically add those IPs to the firewall block list. But unrequested inbound IP probes should already be blocked in most cases by the firewall.
