After bringing up www.msn.ca and viewing for a short period of time, tab is completely grabbed by another url and display having a popup; I've seen two different urls so far; they follow:

https://visitormedicalinsurance.xyz/f28b2078b2c876bc56d518909c6777ed/index.html?ip=192.243.79.131&trackid=20200321231120551

https://mconsumerdefinition.xyz/f28b2078b2c876bc56d518909c6777ed/index.html 

(this one had an ip and track id parameters as well)

After answering some user survey questions and clicking through some windows, the user selects a prize they have one (e.g., Samsung Galaxy phone) and then the user is asked to supply credit card information for shipping. Scam displays the user's service provider name and branding in the header to fool the user. Close inspection of text reveals odd, but not necessarily incorrect grammar. Scam appears very professional and could fool lots of folks. 

Please have a look so others are not inconvenienced or worse yet taken advantage of.

I have the latest version of Malwarebytes premium installed and it did not detect this malware. Neither did my most recent version of Norton Internet Security.

Hello @HoosierBoy

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

STEP 01

  • If you're already running Malwarebytes 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 installed yet please download it from here and install it.
  • Once installed then open Malwarebytes and select Scan and let it run.
  • Once the scan is completed click on the View Report button, then the Export 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 in 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.

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 checkmark here.
  • Please attach the Additions.txt log to your reply as well.

 

Thanks
