System Security malware - blocking access to Malwarebytes.org


Recommended Posts

I was sent a link via Facebook that McAfee Security Center flagged as a Koobface worm, but it didn't appear to catch all of it. My browser has now been hijacked - attempts to go to MalwareBytes.org blocks the access, redirects it to an ad, or redirects it to a site that looks like a Virus Scanner (I believe it was called System Security).

I also cannot update Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, and I'm not sure if McAfee is working either. I installed MBAM and the latest updates i could find, but when it runs now it doesn't find anything.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Keith

Hi Keith and welcome to the forums. Sorry for the delay in getting to your post.

Download DDS and save it to your desktop from here or here or here.

Disable any script blocker, and then double click dds.scr to run the tool.

  • When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:
    1. DDS.txt
    2. Attach.txt

    [*]Save both reports to your desktop. Post them back to your topic.

Download This file. Note its name and save it to your root folder, such as C:\.

  • Disconnect from the Internet and close all running programs.
  • Temporarily disable any real-time active protection so your security program drivers will not conflict with this file.
  • Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled.
  • Double-click on the downloaded file to start the program. (If running Vista, right click on it and select "Run as an Administrator")
  • Allow the driver to load if asked.
  • You may be prompted to scan immediately if it detects rootkit activity.
  • If you are prompted to scan your system click "Yes" to begin the scan.
  • If not prompted, click the "Rootkit/Malware" tab.
  • On the right-side, all items to be scanned should be checked by default except for "Show All". Leave that box unchecked.
  • Select all drives that are connected to your system to be scanned.
  • Click the Scan button to begin. (Please be patient as it can take some time to complete)
  • When the scan is finished, click Save to save the scan results to your Desktop.
  • Save the file as Results.log and copy/paste the contents in your next reply.
  • Exit the program and re-enable all active protection when done.
