Malwarebytes blocked hijack

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

I got a pop up from Malwarebytes a few minutes ago that said it was blocking a hijack. I was on Firefox just getting on Yahoo.com. I also have an ad blocker on. I immediately closed the browser window and ran a regular Malwarebytes scan, then an adwCleaner. Neither of them picked up anything on my computer, but I did download the error log, then I uploaded it here which will give you the details of what it found:

-Website Data-
Category: Hijack
Domain: westerndigitalmeasure.com
IP Address:
Port: [61326]
Type: Outbound
File: C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe

I also deleted any cookies, cache, and any temporary internet files. Please let me know if there's anything else I need to do. Has anyone else reported this?

Thank you.

I also ran a program called RogueKiller which I saw mentioned on this forum and it found some items which I removed, but I don't know if they have any relation to the issues I am having. I have uploaded the log here:
