posible new redirect virus.

Recommended Posts

3 days ago, i googled how to do something, i forget what it was, but i found a link, and clicked it. 

It redirected me to a plain ip site, that then constantly redirected me. causing chrome to freeze, i could do anything else on my comp, just not use chrome. 

I managed to close it, and when i oped and went to history, it showed like 2 thousand different addresses, when it was only open for probably 3-4 mins cuz closing it took a while

i thought it was a bad link, but scanned with malwarebytes anyways, it found nothing. About an hour ago, i was googling a leveling guide for black desert online, and found one. it was top, and a website i've been on before, and it redirected me again to a website, that did the same thing, few screenshots of the history is attached.

the website that redirected me, i went back to and could go to it, so i don't think the website is compromised.

again, malware bytes found nothing, RKill found nothing, there are no chrome extensions i didn't add, the only things i've installed recently are games from the steam summer sale. 

i googled each time, and all i found is the old popup scam. i could find nothing about this online.

as far as i can tell, its not doing anything bad, its just annoying. 

if it happens again, ill try and get some screenshots of the webpage - first one was something about windows defender found the zeus virus, it can do this, call this number to get it removed, the 2nd one was just a white page, and a voice say once that something was detected.

since i found nothing online, and malware bytes detected nothing, i figured it could be a new virus, but i dont have the knowledge to make a call like that.

sorry if this isn't where something like this should go as well.

Hi n1ght5aw8:)

My name is Aura and I'll be assisting you with your malware issue. Since we'll be working together, you can call me Aura or Yoan, which is my real name, it's up to you! Now that we've broke the ice, I'll just ask you a few things during the time we'll be working together to clean your system and get it back to an operational state.

  • As you'll notice, the logs we are asking for here are quite lenghty, so it's normal for me to not reply exactly after you post them. This is because I need some time to analyse them and then act accordingly. However, I'll always reply within 24 hours, 48 hours at most if something unexpected happens
  • As long as I'm assisting you on Malwarebytes Forums, in this thread, I'll ask you to not seek assistance anywhere else for any issue related to the system we are working on. If you have an issue, question, etc. about your computer, please ask it in this thread and I'll assist you
  • The same principle applies to any modifications you make to your system, I would like you to ask me before you do any manipulations that aren't in the instructions I posted. This is to ensure that we are operating in sync and I know exactly what's happening on your system
  • If you aren't sure about an instruction I'm giving you, ask me about it. This is to ensure that the clean-up process goes without any issue. I'll answer you and even give you more precise instructions/explanations if you need. There's no shame in asking questions here, better be safe than sorry!
  • If you don't reply to your thread within 3 days, I'll bump this thread to let you know that I'm waiting for you. If you don't reply after 5 days, it'll be closed. If you return after that period, you can send me a PM to get it unlocked and we'll continue where we left off;
  • Since malware can work quickly, we want to get rid of them as fast as we can, before they make unknown changes to the system. This being said, I would appreciate if you could reply to this thread within 24 hours of me posting. This way, we'll have a good clean-up rhythm and the chances of complications will be reduced
  • I'm against any form of pirated, illegal and counterfeit software and material. So if you have any installed on your system, I'll ask you to uninstall them right now. You don't have to tell me if you indeed had some or not, I'll give you the benefit of the doubt. Plus, this would be against Malwarebytes Forums's rules
  • In the end, you are the one asking for assistance here. So if you wish to go a different way during the clean-up, like format and reinstall Windows, you are free to do so. I would appreciate you to let me know about it first, and if you need, I can also assist you in the process
  • I would appreciate if you were to stay with me until the end, which means, until I declare your system clean. Just because your system isn't behaving weirdly anymore, or is running better than before, it doesn't mean that the infection is completely gone
    This being said, I have a full time job so sometimes it'll take longer for me to reply to you. Don't worry, you'll be my first priority as soon as I get home and have time to look at your thread

This being said, it's time to clean-up some malware, so let's get started, shall we? :)

Do you still need assistance with your issue?

Since this thread has been up for a while, I'll be closing it in 3 days if you do not reply. If you see my post after that, feel free to send me a PM to get it re-opened.

mark it closed - figured out the problem. completely forgot i posted this as well.. black desert foundry was the site - i'm not sure if its an ad they show, or the site is just garbage. but once i stopped using that website, no more redirects. in the months to come, i've seen some people saying how the site is not to be used, because of this reason.
