linkedin.com redirects to referral.com

Specs: Windows 7
I tried logging on to LinkedIn.com today, and it redirected me to a site called "referrals.com." The page looked similar to LinkedIn.com's login site, so I put in my username and password, but nothing happened. Then I realized that I had been hacked. Referrals.com now has my username and password to Linkedin.com, and will no doubt try that same username and password combination on other accounts that I have. Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

As we dismantle the infection bit by bit, that may allow the repeat use of programs, which may in turn pick up more.
Removal of infected parts of the system, may cause other parts to stop working, such as your Internet connection or Services. These then we have to repair later.

If any program won't run ( due to the infection ) let me know. Post the log/logs after each run.
Screenshots ( SS ) may also requested, or if you want to illustrate a point yourself, use the uploader.
If any of the logs are too large, upload them to a site of your choosing or, all can be done with this. I use Imgur.com

If you are concerned I would also change the other passwords, I would not use the same Id/password combination for more than one site. This could prevent this same issue from happening again. It looks like that site is using your linked-in password to log in, that doesn't mean that you will be hacked. I would say that it is just as likely that linked in would be hacked as referrals.com

if you want more information contact the site

Or contact linked-in and complain that you are concerned.

First off, Referrals.com is a completely different site than LinkedIn. We just own Linked.com which I think is the one you went into. So I think this is a user problem and not ours. Also whatever you input there is discussed in our terms and policies. Your information when you signed up with Referrals.com is deemed confidential and will not be served or manipulated in any way.
