Outbound Trojan Blocked and Removed keylogger

Recommended Posts

Hello, so I have a couple of problems I found out about today.

I reïnstalled Malwarebytes today after a half a year. I ran a scan and found out there was a keylogger on my system for about 30 days and let Malwarebytes immediately remove it. I have attached the log from that scan below. It is removed from my pc and it doesn't come up in the scans anymore. Is it gone now?  Keylogger scan.txt

I'm a little bit worried if there is maybe more wrong on my system. I resumed my work and after 2 hours I restarted my pc. When I did that malwarebytes notified me it had blocked three outbound connections. I can't remember exactly what I did after that, I just know I did some cleaning and restarted my pc again. Now instead of 3 outbound connections blocked, only one was left. And that's the only connection it blocks after restarting my pc, the other two are gone.

The connection that still gets blocked is a

Connection 1: Trojan Horse in the file C:\Windows\SysWOW64\wscript.exe Connection 1.txt

The the connections that were blocked before and are not right now are:

Connection 2: Trojan Horse in C:\Program Files (x84)\Google Chrome\Application\chrome.exe Connection 2.txt

Connection 3: Malware in C:\Windows\SysWOW64\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe Connection 3.txt

I have attached all the scan report files too.

Should I be worried? I hope someone can help me that would be great. I have also attached the FRST scan files from the scan I just did.

Hello @RedCat and :welcome:


Please download the attached fixlist.txt file and save it to the Desktop.
NOTE. It's important that both files, FRST or FRST64 and fixlist.txt are in the same location or the fix will not work.

NOTICE: This script was written specifically for this user, for use on this particular machine. Running this on another machine may cause damage to your operating system.

Run FRST or FRST64 and press the Fix button just once and wait.
If the tool needs a restart please make sure you let the system restart normally and let the tool complete its run after restart.
The tool will make a log on the Desktop (Fixlog.txt). Please attach or post it to your next reply.

Note: If the tool warned you about an outdated version please download and run the updated version.

Yes, unfortunately, it takes a bit of work to clean the computer but we'll get you fixed up.

Let me have you run the following to get new scans and logs. If anything is found make sure you have Malwarebytes or AdwCleaner remove what it finds.



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.


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 Now.
  • When finished, please click Clean & Repair.
  • 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

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.
  • The first time the tool is run, it also makes another log (Addition.txt). If you've, run the tool before you need to place a check mark here.
  • Please attach the Additions.txt log to your reply as well.

Hi, I ran the Kaspersky virus removal tool and found this:


After the scan my pc had to restart and it performed another bigger scan and found this:


I clicked on neutralize all, but a couple of the files are still in quarantine now even though I wanted to delete them.

Hope you can help with this :)

Being in quarantine is okay. Files are encrypted and cannot get out or affect the computer from there.

That's great. That is actually what I was looking for that I was not seeing in the other logs.

Let me get a new set of Malwarebytes, AdwCleaner, and FRST logs please.


How is the computer running now?
Are you still seeing any signs of an infection?

Overall the logs look good. I would recommend you reset Chrome to ensure all is good.

Please follow the directions from the topic below.


After resetting Chrome look at the following information.
