Google Redirect

June 17, 2009 at 11:37:04
Specs: Windows XP
It seems that people are getting this virus recently. I was looking through some older posts and it didn't really match so I decided to post. Google and Yahoo seem to both redirect randomly to Shopzilla and websites that don't match the original website. But after a few tries, I can get to the original which is good but still very annoying. I've scanned with Maleware and full scan showed a infected file. I got rid of it but it's still happening. Please help? Thank you very much.

Manually would be great. What else do you need?

Note: I can help you remove malware manually. Please avoid installing/uninstalling or updating any programs and attempting any unsupervised fixes or scans. This can make helping you impossible. First Track this topic. Then follow:

1) Can you please post your AVZ log:
Note: Run AVZ in windows normal mode. If avz.exe doesn't start, then try to rename the file avz.exe to something else and try to run it again. Make sure you have your web browser open in background before following the steps below.

i) To create the log file, download AVZ by clicking HERE. Please save this file to your desktop or "My Documents" folder.

ii) Next, unpack the file to a new folder using the Compressed (zipped) folders wizard built into Windows XP/Vista, or a zip utility of your choice.

iii) Once you have unpacked the contents of the zip archive, please launch the file AVZ.exe by double clicking on it or right clicking and selecting Open.
Note: If you are running Windows vista launch AVZ.exe by right clicking and selecting Run as Administrator.

You should now see the main window of the AVZ utility. Please navigate to File->Custom Scripts. Copy the script below by using the keyboard shortcut CTRL+C or the corresponding option via right click.

begin
ExecuteStdScr(3);
RebootWindows(true);
end.


Paste the script into the execution window by using CTRL+V keyboard shortcut, or the "paste" option via the right click menu. Click on Run to run the script, the PC will reboot. After the reboot the LOG subfolder is created in the folder with AVZ, with a file called virusinfo_syscure.zip inside. Upload that file to rapidshare.com and paste the link here.

2) Download and Run DDS which will create a Pseudo HJT Report as part of its log: DDS Tool Download Link. When done, DDS will open two (2) logs

   1. DDS.txt
   2. Attach.txt

Upload the logs to rapidshare.com and paste download link in your next reply.
Note: Disable any script-blocking programs and then double-click on the DDS.scr icon to start the program. If you did not disable a script-blocker that may be part of your antimalware program, you may receive a warning from your antimalware product asking if you would like DDS.scr to run. Please allow it to do so.

Follow these Steps in order numbered. Don't proceed to next step unless you have sucessfully completed previous step:

1)Try to uninstall:
SearchAssist
Viewpoint Media Player

2) Run this script in AVZ like before, your computer will reboot:

begin
SetAVZGuardStatus(True);
SearchRootkit(true, true);
 QuarantineFile('C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\vekyzato.sys','');
BC_ImportDeletedList;
ExecuteSysClean;
BC_Activate;
RebootWindows(true);
end.

3) After reboot execute following script in AVZ:

begin
CreateQurantineArchive('C:\quarantine1.zip');    
end.


A file called quarantine1.zip should be created in C:\. Upload that file to rapidshare.com and private message me download link.

1) I do not recommend that you have more than one anti virus product installed and running on your computer at a time. The reason for this is that if both products have their automatic (Real-Time) protection switched on, then those products which do not encrypt the virus strings within them can cause other anti virus products to cause "false alarms". It can also lead to a clash as both products fight for access to files which are opened again this is the resident/automatic protection. In general terms, the two programs may conflict and cause:
1) False Alarms: When the anti virus software tells you that your PC has a virus when it actually doesn't.
2) System Performance Problems: Your system may lock up due to both products attempting to access the same file at the same time.
Therefore please go to add/remove in the control panel and remove either CyberDefender Internet Security or AVG.

2) Run complete scan with: http://onecare.live.com/site/en-Us/...

Err. Sorry. I meant the website redirection.

The files are SKYNETpaxrnwhc.dll, SKYNETowboetea.dll, and the driver/ SKYNETbprqlxdj.sys. The two viruses are: Trojan: Win32/Sudiet.B and VirTool: Win32/Obfuscator.ET

And the program deleted it but it's still happening.

Attach a Combofix log, please review and follow these instructions carefully.

Download it here -> http://download.bleepingcomputer.co...

Before Saving it to Desktop, please rename it to something like 123.exe to stop malware from disabling it.

Now, please make sure no other programs are running, close all other windows and pause Antivirus/Sypware programs (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic114351.html Programs to disable) until after the scanning and removal process has taken place.

Please double click on the file you downloaded. Follow the onscreen prompts to start the scan. Once the scanning process has started please DO NOT click on the Combofix window or attempt to use your computer as this can cause the scanning process to stall. It may take a while to complete scanning and this is normal.

You will be disconnected from the internet and your desktop icons/toolbars will disappear during scanning, do not worry, this is normal and it will be restored after scanning has completed.

Combofix will create a logfile and display it after your computer has rebooted. Usually located in c:\combofix.txt, please upload that file to rapidshare.com and paste the link here.

It is probably some hind of browser hijacker. You should scan your computer with Spyware Doctor. This program is good at removing browser's hijackers. http://www.2-spyware.com/review-spy...

Thanks for all the help! But, I have to bother you with one thing. When I started my computer, an error screen came up and said that something (I'll find it again) couldn't find the exe. Once I find it again, then I'll inform you, but should I be worried about this?

Don't know once you post more info... Stop all other steps and run this first:

Download and run Kaspersky AVP tool: http://devbuilds.kaspersky-labs.com...
Once you download and start the tool:

# Check below options:

    * Select all the objects/places to be scanned. 
    * Settings > Customize > Heuristic analyzer > Enable deep rootkit search

# Click Scan
# Fix what it detects
# Attach Scan log/Summary to your next message.

PS: If you can't download it use usb to transfer it via different computer. Remember to keep usb attached to infected computer while scanning with AVP tool.
