Trojan popups - redfunchicken

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I have had what looks like a trojan virus on my website, I went to log-in to my wordpress account but at the wp-admin log in page it quickly goes into pop-up notifications from redfunchicken.com which means I can't log-in to my website. 

I installed the free Malwarebytes trial and thankfully it allows me to log-in but when I navigate my website I get a popup from Malwarebytes saying website blocked due to Trojan, so I would like to know how to remove this annoying pop up from redfunchicken.com, is it on my system or just attached to my website :/

  • Root Admin

Hello @wayne0881


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


  • 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.


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

Hi - 

I tried the above instructions and did 1 and 2 succesfully but Malwarebytes blocked the Farbar Recovery Tool and said it was Ransomware which was odd.

Anyway I reset all my browsers and factory reset my phone and it has seemed to do the trick!

so far so good
