Apparent IP Attack.

Recommended Posts



I have MB Premium and yesterday I began getting Blocked (Malicious) Website popups for, rk5-joint8.biz.  These pop-ups typically begin shortly after I turn on my PC, and continue to pop up about every 20 seconds, each time advancing the Port number.  After a while, the popups will stop, but will then resume after another 10-15 minutes or so.   I've made certain that MB has the latest database and have run a full threat scan, but the results indicate that no malicious items were detected.  


I suppose the good news is that MB is blocking the site, but I'm guessing the bad news is that my system is infected.  I know how to disable the popups, but that would seem to be only fixing the symptom and not the problem. 


Any advice?

Hi Kevin.


Thanks for the reply.  Attached are the three logs that you requested.


However, it's probably worth mentioning that since I posted the problem a short while ago, I've managed to get the popups to stop.  After posting my message, I found a post on another site that referenced the same IP address, albeit with a different domain name.  In that post, the op mentioned that through other software, he/she had managed to identify the offending file as being in "C:\ProgramData\{9a88e103-a20a-4ea5-8636-c73b709a5bf8}\" .   On a whim, I searched my program data directory and sure enough, found a new folder of exactly that UID name that was created just about at the time that I started noticing the pop-ups.    There were three files inside, all of which were locked due to being in use.  So, although I normally don't take chances, I do have numerous backups of that drive and thus decided to use a file deletion tool to remove those files (and the folder) upon re-boot.  I then used a registry cleaner to make certain all references to that folder were removed.  It's now been about an hour and I've seen no popups. 


Regardless, I'm responding with the logs, just in case the malware has not truly been removed.  Note that these logs were created *after* I removed the files noted above whereas that operation was performed before you responded.

Have you XXXXX out the user name or is that correct name:



If you have made that change I cannot give a fix to remove problem entries from your system

Yes, sorry.  Whereas these logs appear to be publicly viewable, I substituted my user name for the XXXXX.  If that is required, I can certain re-run the utilities and generated new, unedited logs.

Download attached fixlist.txt file (end of reply) and save it to the Desktop, or the folder you saved FRST into.

NOTE. It's important that both FRST and fixlist.txt are in the same location or the fix will not work.


Run FRST and press the Fix button just once and wait.

The tool will make a log on the Desktop (Fixlog.txt) or the folder it was ran from. Please post it to your reply.

Hi Kevin.  Thanks again for you assistance.   I followed your instructions and ran the various utilities.  The logs from each are attached.  I noticed that MB and the Windows Malicious Software removal tool both came up clean, but I've included those logs anyway.  


The only concern I have is that upon running FRST (with your provided fixlist file in the same folder), it immediately launched and starting writing a log however it seemed to stall after that.   After about 45 minutes, it was still saying "Fixing", but there had been no disk activity for quite a while, and the log file had not been appended or updated in any way since the application was first started. I eventually terminated the process however, the log seems to indicate that it actually did was it supposed to .. it just didn't shut down properly at the end.  Should I be concerned?  


Other than that, everything else seems to be fine and I haven't seen any more pop-ups since earlier today.

The issue you mention with FRST has repeated in a couple of other threads i`ve worked today. I`ll mention this issue to the developer, as it produces a log and follows the script I would not be concerned...


Run the following to clean up:


Download "Delfix by Xplode" and save it to your desktop.


Or use the following if first link is down:


"Delfix link mirror"


Double Click to start the program. If you are using Vista or higher, please right-click and choose run as administrator


Make Sure the following items are checked:


    Activate UAC
    Remove disinfection tools
    Create registry backup
    Purge System Restore
    Reset system settings


Now click on "Run" and wait patiently until the tool has completed.


The tool will create a log when it has completed. We don't need you to post this.


Part of the routine will be to create a registry back up with ERUNT,  the back up will be created here:




When all is known to be well with your system you can delete that back up folder if you consider it as not needed...

Any remnant files/logs from tools we have used can be deleted…




Read the following link to fully understand PC security and best practices, you may find it useful....




Let me know if you still need assistance, if not are we ok to close out...
