"Reppoflag" VIRUS issue


Go to solution Solved by ForumName,

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I too, have the same issue with Reppoflag. Malwarebytes is blocking it from connecting but it launches every time I connect to Google using Chrome.

I've followed all the steps in this thread up to Adwcleaner. (I haven't run the custom script, obviously)

I've run a number of scanners on my computer but nothing is showing up.

I would be grateful for some help with this. It is making me nervous.

Thanks.

Hello @ForumName

Please check on Spybot Anti-Beacon as Windows Defender is detecting it as a threat.

 

 

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

Please make sure you disable any real-time antivirus or security software before running this script. Once completed make sure you re-enable it.

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 that cannot be undone.

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) or wherever you ran FRST from. 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Note: If the tool warned you about an outdated version please download and run the updated version.

NOTE-1:  This fix will run a scan to check that all Microsoft operating system files are valid and not corrupt and attempt to correct any invalid files. It will also run a disk check on the restart to ensure disk integrity. Depending on the speed of your computer this fix may take 30 minutes or more.

NOTE-2: As part of this fix all temporary files will be removed. If you have any open web pages that have not been bookmarked please make sure you bookmark them now as all open applications will be automatically closed. Also, make sure you know the passwords for all websites as cookies will also be removed. The use of an external password manager is highly recommended instead of using your browser to store passwords.

The following directories are emptied:

  • Windows Temp
  • Users Temp folders
  • Edge, IE, FF, Chrome and Opera caches, HTML5 storages, Cookies and History
  • Recently opened files cache
  • Flash Player cache
  • Java cache
  • Steam HTML cache
  • Explorer thumbnail and icon cache
  • BITS transfer queue (qmgr*.dat files)
  • Recycle Bin

Important: items are permanently deleted. They are not moved to quarantine. If you have any questions or concerns please ask before running this fix.

The system will be rebooted after the fix has run.

fixlist.txt

Thanks

Thanks. M$ altered their detections to include anything that writes to hosts file, which Anti-beacon does, hence the threat detection.

So, I've ran FRST64 and reppoflag is still activating whenever I go to Google. 😕

So I had a thought and looked at Chrome extensions...

I was running these (have done for years):

  • Adblock Plus
  • Cookie AutoDelete
  • Ghostery – Privacy Ad Blocker
  • uBlock - AdBlock Tool for Chrome

Tried turning them off, etc. Nope, still coming up when I went on Google. So I deleted all of them, restarted Chrome, them reinstalled them. 

So far, so good.

Excellent, glad you were able to get this portion resolved by removal and reinstall of your extensions. Now if we can just get you off of the Marketing giant 🙂

Anyways... this was from the logs which was also good for your system.

Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files and successfully repaired them.

How is the computer running now?

Is there anything else I can assist you with?

I'm guessing malware exploited a vulnerability on one of the extensions and was able to hook itself into their processes although I'm not sure which one. Seems to be completely resolved now thankfully.
