Malware in Chrome Mac not getting detected by Malwarebytes


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have been facing a lot of redirecting problems on my google chrome for Mac OS X El Captain 10.11.2 on an iMac. 

1. If I type to search any parameter in the omnibox with google, no redirection occurs and google search results appear normally

2. If I click on any of the link in the search results, the website first opens and then gets redirected

3. If I visit a particular website by entering the URL in the omnibox, the website opens and then gets redirected.

4. However if I click on "Stop/X" before the entire page loads, it does not get redirected and browsing on the website normally works just fine, with other links on the page opening without any redirection

5. Sites such as those for flights etc, open a new tab with some russian porn sites etc.

 

In most cases the redirection first goes to: hxxps://repmbuycurl.com/v/c8480152-a938-11e5-93e6-01506583babe/c/77da5c6f-980d-11e5-b565-02f6361de079/?i=1&s=af5399fa-a86a-11e5-833a-1150407b5816&r=repmbuycurl.com&rcid=5FRy4hbTzbu_HJvp86sJ-Qc_i7PGKJpj_fKatOmC1t9xKwSV4XNWsDJ0FB7F8PiWhfube7DAgkI&d=1|0|-330|0|1|1|||2560x1440|74-d8cbb4b0|1|0|10

 

Followed by hxxp://topoffers.click/r/d3f6ec66-a938-11e5-a707-115062c5523a/1/

 

and finally lands on facebook.com with my profile page opening up

 

I have done the following

1. Installed malwarebytes, run a scan - it did show some malware, which was cleaned and the iMac was restarted

2. Chrome browser settings were reset (after resetting for that period the browser worked just fine, however next day it was back)

3. Malwarebytes shows there is NO more malware

4. I deleted chrome and all the .plist and other entries from my library, and reinstalled chrome but the same matter exists

5. Safari is not affected by the same and I can browse normally on safari

6. I isolated the router and firewall to check if they have an internal problem, and used another internet connection, however the problem is still there

7. It occurs with authentic websites such as mailchimp etc.

8. Even ran an antivirus scan with avast but the results were all negative.

9. Please note all extensions have been removed as well.

 

Please advise how can I solve this problem?

I don't see anything malicious installed on your system, although I do see a couple concerning things that indicate behavior that could result in something malicious being installed. You've got BitTorrent installed, and you've been using a pirated copy of at least one Adobe app. This can cause problems, so I'd advise not dabbling in such areas in the future.

 

As for the problem, though, I'm not sure what could be causing it. You've only got Google extensions installed in Chrome, and it sounds like you have tried deleting Chrome and all its support files, which pretty well rules out any kind of malicious extension or hack of Chrome itself.

 

What are your DNS settings? Go to System Preferences and click on the Network icon. Then, click on the Advanced button in the lower right corner of that preference pane. In the window that drops down, switch to the DNS tab. What is shown in the DNS servers list?

Hi Thomas,

 

The DNS server list has 2 servers, that are assigned by the DHCP server

 

37.48.108.142 (I guess this is from the ISP) & 8.8.8.8 (which is google I believe).

 

Each time i delete all my internet data and cookies etc, it works just fine on that particular day, next day it is back to where it was, and redirections begin again.

That first DNS server has been reported for being involved in network hardware hacks. See:

 

http://www.abuseipdb.com/report-history/37.48.108.142

 

Now, I don't necessarily put a lot of faith in such things, as I have owned a legit site that was, at one point, blocked by some anti-virus software due to being falsely flagged as a malware site. False positives do happen, and this could be one. But hacked network hardware also could be the source of your problem. It's also possible that this is a legit DNS server from your ISP, but that server has been hacked.

 

See the following page for more info on how to proceed from here:

 

https://support.malwarebytes.org/customer/portal/articles/2049288-?b_id=9511

 

You could also try manually changing the DNS server settings:
