worldnaturenet.xyz constant notifications

Recommended Posts

Whenever I sign into protonmail, I get notified of MWB blocking worldnaturenet.xyz at least three times. It pops up elsewhere too, but this only happens on my chrome.

I've reset and reinstalled my chrome, done numerous deep scans, blocked cookies, removed extensions and whatnot, and still naught. I don't know what's going on.

I don't see any more popups, but I still see trafficvalidation.tools in my ublock pro, should I be worried? is anything causing it to be there? Is it safe to put my flash drives back in?

Hello @BreadmanYan and :welcome:

Often these are caused by old, outdated plugins or setting in the browser. Please try the following and see if that helps.

If you're still having issues after that then let me know.

Thanks

Ron

When I used chrome in incognito mode, it didn't appear, yet here it still does, even after I removed it from my filters. Sync disabled, of course.

I have all these filters on and i'm not sure if they're responsible for all the blocked stuff.

Let's go ahead then and scan for anything else that might be causing an issue.

 

Please run the following steps and post back the logs as an attachment when ready.

  • If you're already running Malwarebytes 3 then open Malwarebytes and check for updates. Then click on the Scan tab and select Threat Scan and click on Start Scan button.
  • If you don't have Malwarebytes 3 installed yet please download it from here and install it.
  • Once installed then open Malwarebytes and check for updates. Then click on the Scan tab and select Threat Scan and click on Start Scan button.
  • Once the scan is completed click on the Export Summary button and save the file as a Text file to your desktop or other location you can find, and attach that log on your next reply.
  • If Malwarebytes won't run then please skip to the next step and let me know on your next reply.

STEP 02

Please download AdwCleaner by Malwarebytes and save the file to your Desktop.

  • Right-click on the program and select RunAsAdmin.jpg Run as Administrator to start the tool.
  • Accept the Terms of use.
  • Wait until the database is updated.
  • Click Scan.
  • When finished, please click Clean.
  • Your PC should reboot now if any items were found.
  • After reboot, a log file will be opened. Copy its content into your next reply.

 

RESTART THE COMPUTER Before running Step 3

STEP 03
Please download the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. You can check here if you're not sure if your computer is 32-bit or 64-bit

  • Double-click to run it. When the tool opens, click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press the Scan button.
  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please attach it to your reply.

Let me have you do the following. Temporarily uninstall your McAfee antivirus and reboot. Then run the following.

 

Please visit this web page and read the ComboFix User's Guide:

  • Once you've read the article and are ready to use the program you can download it directly from the link below.
  • Important! - Please make sure you save combofix to your desktop and do not run it from your browser
  • Direct download link for: ComboFix.exe
  • Please make sure you disable your security applications before running ComboFix.
  • Once Combofix has completed it will produce and open a log file.  Please be patient as it can take some time to load.
  • Please attach that log file to your next reply.
  • If needed the file can be located here:  C:\combofix.txt
  • NOTE: If you receive the message "illegal operation has been attempted on a registry key that has been marked for deletion", just reboot the computer.

 

Thanks

Ron

I'm running it now with security options totally off, and it's been preparing the log report for over 30 minutes - don't know if this is normal or not.

I see worldnaturenet.xyz back and trafficvalidation.tools hijacked one of my search results - they're back, and I just ran a scan with Combofix!

Sorry for the multiple posts, but if I go and open chrome on my affected computer, even to fully disable all of the syncs, would it still sync the taint to the other clean computers or just be isolated on the affected one? I don't know the scope of worldnaturenet.xyz/trafficvalidation.tools' infection.

Okay, so Avast still shows some entries in the log but it looks like you possibly removed it already? Is that correct?

The network has a lot of persistent routes set which is not very common or normal especially for a home user. Did you set those routes on purpose?

The logs also still show entries for McAfee. Did you remove it?

I hope this doesn't get worse, my sync is turned off but I still see this when I log into my protonmail. I've removed avast now, yes. My house has three networks since there was three people using it once, and as for mcafee I hadn't because I was afraid that more PUPs would sneak on the moment I did, but i'll do it now.

Please attach new FRST logs once you remove McAfee.

Also, please reply about the persistent routes. Did you setup all those routes on purpose to other networks in the house? Are they still there or is it still needed? If not I'd suggest resetting the network stack.

Honestly, I didn't set up the routes, nor would I know why. I'm not very tech proficient, but I will try to get someone to fix the network stack.

Here are the other logs as you've requested.

Also got this too, looks like McAfee didn't remove it. Nor did anything else for that matter, seeing that nothing came up.

That is a setting in your browser. Is that in Firefox or Chrome or ???

I can reset the network for you and do some other clean up. Give me a few minutes to write you a fix script.

I almost exclusively use chrome. As for the routes, they're still used regularly. 

The browser hijacker that I got when avast first notified me of a phishing attempt is search323892.xyz, It hasn't shown up on any antivirus scan at all. I don't know where worldnaturenet.xyz and trafficvalidation.tools came from either, nor did they show up on any logs. 

Alternatively, a few PUPs have been detected and removed in the past, but I don't think those have anything to do with it. Is it safe to change my passwords on my afflicted computer, even if the hijacker URLs are blocked by uBlock origin? Has it affected and/or got onto my google profile? 

Wait, setting? What do you mean by that?

If you look deeply at your Chrome settings it will be there in the Search Engine area

 

You mean this? I'm not sure.
