Trojan Connection Outbound

Recommended Posts

Hello @davegreb and :welcome:

That site was blocked due to a Trojan downloader. I would recommend resetting Google Chrome following the guide below. 

 

Please let me know if that corrects the block or not

Thank you

Ron

Hello,

 

I used the adware cleaner and they found PUP.Optional.legacy and removed it.

 

Thanks,

Okay, please run these steps again in the provided order. Don't forget the reboot in the middle.

 

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

STEP 01

  • 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 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

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.
  • 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.

 

Thanks

Ron

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.

fixlist.txt

Thanks

Ron

I have a similar problem as this person. Except the pop up is marked as a Trojan. It only also pops up when I play that specific game which is rust.

I've asked the team to double-check this IP. It would not seem to come from a game as the IP range looks to be from a College. The block was put in place last year. Checking to see if the block is still valid as well. But, again, does not seem right that launching a game would cause this specific block.

Maybe if someone was hosting the game server from there and was also deploying bogus content from the same IP.

Thanks, I'm waiting to hear back from the team on this one.

Does the game still work even though this IP is blocked?

Can you please change your default browser to Microsoft Edge temporarily. Then reboot and test again if this still happens
