Preferred Solution: Chinese Malware?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A Chinese advertising company is responsible for two of the biggest waves of malware for both the Android and iOS ecosystems, a recent Check Point report reveals.

Yingmob, an advertising company based in Chongqing, China, is supposedly the group behind the YiSpecter iOS malware and the HummingBad Android malware.

Both function in the same way, meaning they infect devices to show ads and secretly install other applications, earning their creators money from pay-per-install programs.

Crooks making over $300,000 each month
Check Point estimates that HummingBad alone delivers over 20 million ads per day that achieve a click rate of 12.5 percent, which is the equivalent of 2.5 million clicks per day. Additionally, HummingBad installs over 50,000 fraudulent apps per day.

Putting all these numbers together, Yingmob earns over $3,000 per day from clicks alone and another $7,500 from fraudulent app installs. That's around $300,000 each month, or $3.6 million per year.

Check Point researchers say that HummingBad has managed to infect 85 million devices at the moment, and Yingmob has complete control over these smartphones because it illegally rooted the devices and can push any type of malware or make the devices take any action.

So this is the case: I recently visited a Chinese Website on my Windows XP system. I have to admit that I had no Antivirus or Antispyware software installed on my computer at the time. Any way, with the help of Yahoo' s Antispy Scan I found out that I had quite a lot of Spyware on my system. The're names: Cinmus A, CNNIC downloader, Quiq, Sogou, Cdn helper, pctools.dll, Cinmeng among others. I used Spybot(free version), Zone Alarm Internet Suite Trial, Xcleaner(free), CWShredder, Hijackthis, AVG AntiSpyware Trial, AVG Antivirus Trial, Avast Antivirus (free), Ad-Aware SE (free) & McAfee Internet Security Suite 30 day Trial. They removed most of the junk, but were unsuccessful in removing Cinmus A, pctools.dll and some of the registry keys from those nasty buggers. I'm not sure but it seems like not much of our top rated Antispyware/Antivirus programs can handle Chinese Adware & Spyware. Please HELP! I'm currently using McAfee Internet Suite trial which really does secure my system, but doesn't detect Cinmus A, and I can't delete or shred pctools.dll. Plus, McAfee Trial ends on the 1st Of July 2007 (so if I don't come up with something quick, I'm kinda screwed: cause all that stuff will phone home to China and reinstall themselves). I'm deperate. Please someone, HELP ME!

Half of all malware originating in China during October was designed to steal usernames and passwords, an IT security firm warned today.By analysing the malware, which was written in a simplified version of Chinese, Sophos reported that 45.2 percent aimed to steal online game log-in information.A further 7.5 percent was designed to provide the hackers with username and password details for the popular Chinese QQ instant messaging client."Given the ever growing popularity of online gaming in China, this is a worrying trend," said Carole Theriault, senior security consultant at Sophos."Once hackers have stolen log-in details, they can effectively impersonate the victim in the online world.http://www.itnews.com.au/newsstory.aspx?CI...p;src=site-marq

So, I've heard about this happening before, but never thought it would hit me... I am very careful about adware, etc, and have never had a problem until now. The other day I purchased a new 750Gb Iomega external hard drive. It was mac-formatted, so I plugged it in and turned it on with the intention of reformatting it. However, once it was connected and installed I started getting these full-screen IE (i use firefox for browsing) popups full of advertisements in chinese. I didn't think much of it so i didn't write down the addresses. Immediately the computer started acting odd... slowing down, hanging up at odd times. Then my norton antivirus notified me of a couple viruses in the temp folder. I started to get worried so I stopped everything and did a full virus scan. The scan crashed with a BSOD and when I rebooted the computer I ran every online virus scan I could find, repeatedly, trying to get rid of all of the crap. I found a bunch of trojans, keyloggers, infostealers, rootkits, etc, could not run task manager or HijackThis, and at one point windows would not even fully boot.I've done a lot of work so far, and am almost there, but there are still a few things that keep coming back. It is for this reason that I am forced to finally ask for help.

Hello, Firstly I want to say I have learned my lesson and not downloading anything from pirate bay again.
 
I tried to download a tv show tonight. Only to discover (too late) that it's one of the worst viruses I have personally seen, It all appeared after I deleted the tv show I downloaded and went outside for a smoke, when I came back there's chinese porn, chinese dialog boxes of things I simply cannot read, IE opening by itself, adware, redirects, trojans, browsers, you name it. Fake antivirus programs specifically a fake version of rising anti virus that blocks my real programs like adwcleaner and microsoft security essentials. I have tried other antivirus programs with no effect because of the blocking issue.
 
I am accessing this forum on a different pc, because the infected pc is virtually unusable, I have had viruses in the past but nothing like this, I really need a program that I can download with this clean PC and install onto the infected one via USB.   
 
Should I just buy a 2TB drive and try to salvage what I can before it locks up completely. 
 
I am sorry if this seems a little bit rushed, the infected PC is used for some graphic design stuff I need access to for work. I am stupid I know.
 
Any help greatly appreciated.
 
 
-edit-
 
I just checked it again locked up from infinite chinese porn pages automatically loading in IE, starting to accept I've lost everything on that PC

Hey,

Have any of y'all seen a box that pops up with a blue border, at the top there is a penguin with 4 Chinese characters beside it. Below is another with QQ: then a box with 10000 in it, two or three more characters, another box with 10000 in it, then a small box with the image of a person in it, followed by 8 more characters.
Then below that is a larger box full of Chinese characters and some numbers. After this pops up, things deteriorate rapidly. The first thing we noticed was that the Task manager would not open. Others had other problems, eventually not being able to work at all.

I'm not asking for a solution. We have been looking High and Low, and we know how to use the tools available. I just want to know if anyone out there has come across this and if anyone knows where it came from?

Thanks!!

Hello,
during exploration of various app creators for android I came across beta.appinventor.mit.edu. I'm still using IE8(sadly no more support) but have google chrome as a second option. 
I'm not sure when what happened exactly. I did a defrag, cleaned some old files. I tried to open beta.appinventor in chrome and it displays chinese characters across the screen.
Even when I log-in to my modem (portable wifi router) from chrome it displays chinese characters. Very few sites display adds in chinese the rest of the site would be ok. Also if I open a tab in incognito mode the entire window is filled with chinese characters.
Now the chinese characters are not displayed by opening 'normal' url's.
The puzzling thing is, the speed of the system is good. IE8 has no problems. I can open websites in chrome, no problem. 
I tried ccleaner, norton scan, dr.web scan, uninstalled chrome, re installed, several times, knowing I will not be able to remove all chrome instances in the reg, trying it again with revo uninstaller and re install.
Same problem chinese characters. I don't know what else to do.

A:possible malware in google chrome, displaying Chinese characters

hi everybody,
sorry for my own confusion. I kept on digging and came across a forum. It was suggested to change the encoding in chrome to autodetect, While my chrome showed unicode. Anyway I tried, the result no chinese characters anymore. Allways thought unicode was more or less universal, that would have been the last thing for me to suspect.
Strange was that a new install to my laptop which never had chrome on it came with unicode already in place. Had to change that, too.
Long story, happy ending, problem solved.

Hello, this has been posted already, but perhaps the treatment method may vary depending on my situation and logs etc, so reposting...

XP SP3
IE 8 BETA (although using Firefox mainly)
Tried: Fullscan with KIS 2009 (kaspersky) and Adaware.
It removed some win32trojan downloader agent mkav or so, but problem remains.

Description:
I've been experiencing multiple iexplore.exe processes running freely without my control (I use Firefox mainly). While they run, there's a weird chinese speech in the background which sounds like a commercial, it may repeat itself few times and even overrun itself in sound.

The Problem:
iexplore.exe keeps on running along with the CHINESE talking in the background.

Now, if I run full scan on my system with KIS, it wouldn't detect anything, not to mention updated Lavasoft Ad-Aware 2008...

I just received delivery of a mini camera/voice recorder that has an instruction sheet in both Chinese characters and also broken English...very broken! In fact, it's basically incomprehensible. Is there anyone viewing this that may be able to help me translate the instructions, because I can't get the recorder to work yet. The colors of the light indicators on the recorder and the instructions don't even match. All that I can observe is red and blue, while the instructions refer to a yellow and green in addition to red.....go figure. And yes, I've contacted the seller about this but they haven't responded yet. I strongly suspect they don't have a clue either...they're just merchandisers, not tech folks.

I've attached a copy of of the so-called English instructions, but if you can read Chinese please contact me and I'll send you or post the instructions written in Chinese characters.

Thanks for your interest.

Yesterday, I did a scan of my network with WireShark 3.2.6  Scan was done on my hardwired Ethernet connection. I am somewhat new to advanced wireshark and I do not know everything there is to know but I am in the process of learning.
While looking at the results of a short scan I saw some unsettling IP Addresses that were appearing on my network. I do a lot of schoolwork online and I need to setup Windows 10 Professional's Firewall to block this IP Address or possibly even a range of

Hi jgardner,Welcome to BC HijackThis forum. I am farbar. I am going to assist you with your problem.One or more of the identified infections is a backdoor trojan.A backdoor Trojan can allow an attacker to gain control of the system, log keystrokes, steal passwords, access personal data, send malevolent outgoing traffic, and close the security warning messages displayed by some anti-virus and security programs.I would counsel you to disconnect this PC from the Internet immediately. If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.Though the trojan has been identified and can be killed, because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the Operating System. Please read these for more information:How Do I Handle Possible Identify Theft, Internet Fraud and CC Fraud?When Should I Format, How Should I ReinstallWe can still try to clean this machine but I might not be able to make sure it will be 100% secure afterward.

Hi!
I would like to know if there is any way to see Chinese in Chinese softwares? My english setting are all in English. I know you can change the language setting to Chinese to view softwares that are in Chinese. But I mostly use English softwares. So, it is kinda pointless to change the setting to Chinese since only a few programs I am using are in Chinese. As changing to Chinese setting will also affect fonts in some of the games.
Anyways. here is the problem:
I am able to type Chinese (such as Notepad etc) and I am also able to view Chinese on the webpage.
But, I am not able to see Chinese in softwares that are in Chinese. It will show up messy codse or just ????s marks.

Before I reformated my computer, I was able to see Chinese in Chinese softwares without changing the language setting into English. But after I reformated, I am not able to do it anymore. Can someone please help me out. Thanks a lot!

(P.S. I do not have the installation CD for my desktop (this computer that can't read Chinese in Chinese software. I had to use my laptop's installation CD to reformat the computer.) So, my laptop and desktop both have the same problem: unable to read Chinese in Chinese software.)

Thanks in advance!

Bleeping Computer wants the name of my virus problem before I post it. I don?t know what it?s called. Have searched the forums but don?t find any with a similar description. Here are (some of) the symptoms:

? Frequent blue screen crashes, now sometimes colored screens. Blue screen often says DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_THAN_OR_EQUAL

? Always when I turn off the computer, I get an End Program box for a program that?s not closing, the name of the program is always 3 digits, two letters and a number, and they are a different letter/# combo every time.

? My speakers have started spontaneously playing what sounds like Chinese TV shows, but there is nothing on the monitor. One that has been repeated several times is called My China Journal. A second show I didn?t get the name of but it talked about Chinese people. These two were in English. A third time it was in what I think is Chinese, so I don?t know what was said.
I have many other small problems, including Google redirect which I have not been able to get rid of. I don?t use Google for searches.

I have Avast antivirus, and have run Superantispyware and Malwarebytes many times. They don?t find anything. I tried AVG before Avast and it made my PC run too slow. I have Windows XP on a non branded PC.

Does anyone know what to call this?

A:Anyone Else Get Chinese TV?

I've checked back several times and seen views, but no replies. Thought I add an update.

I've been turning off my DSL, or my DSL and PC when I'm not using it - which is most of the time. So far when I've been using it I haven't had TV coming thru my speakers (not MY TV), nor some of the other problems I had before. I do still get the End Program box for a program that?s not closing, although I noticed the program name had 4 digits one time. Usually it's three seemingly random digits.

I updated some of my drivers and get almost no blue screens now.

I do have the Google redirect virus, which I haven't found anything that will remove. I don't use Google, I use Dogpile, so it's not much of a problem.

Hello cheemooks and welcome to TSG,

Run the following and post the two produced logs:

Download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system (32 bit or 64 bit). If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.

Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
(Windows 8/10 users will be prompted about Windows SmartScreen protection - click More information and Run.)
Make sure Addition.txt and Shortcut.txt are checkmarked under "Optional scans"
Press Scan button to run the tool....
It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
The tool will also make logs named (Addition.txt) and Shortcut.txt Please attach those logs to your reply.

Thank you,

If anyone has any contacts with cable manufacturers in China or Indonesia could you tell them to stop producing IDE cables with connectors facing the wrong way. They've been producing these cables will nilly for the last 8 years or so without considering the geography of the master/slave situation in your average MTower Case.
Consequently, I know most OEM builders connect the HArd Drive as Master using the 'Slave' connection on the cavble because its the ONLY way it will fit.

Ok so this is probably me being dumb with computers, but I have a very annoying problem. Today I logged onto my laptop to find that everything is in Chinese (date, toolbar, everything). So I tried going to the language keyboards and made sure English was at the top, which it still is. I never changed any settings to Chinese (I only use English, German and Russian).
So, difficult as it is with everything in Chinese, I tried to go to control panel to change my settings. To my despair, nothing works. I even put my region to U.S., it was there anyways. So I went to my last resort, resetting the computer to factory settings. Yes, I tried restarting, shutting it off, everything. I googled Windows helped.
But it gets even more annoying. There is no way to reset my laptop. I have done this before with no problem with an older computer I had. I even googled the steps to reset my laptop. I even googled the Chinese word for "reset" to type into the search bar. But I just keep getting sent to Bing, which is really the last site I want to go to. This isn't a virus of sorts, is it? What is going on here??? Can anyone help out a tech handicapped person here? :/

I've been trying Win8 for a few weeks and am just starting to get the hang of things.
Then all of a sudden, yesterday, I start seeing Chinese on the app icons.
Being the sly and resourceful fella that I am....I googled it.
That lead me to a forum post, somewhere, of someone else having the same issue. The recommendation to that similarly afflicted poor soul, was that they should "refresh" their system and that doing so would fix the Chinese without harming any programs files or settings.

By-golly...I needed me some of that cure-all. So I went and done it.
Guess what....
Wiped my system. Me not happy camper. grr ugh!
So Ive spent the past day trying to rebuild everything.

Do you have copies of all the Windows XP Pro drivers needed for your particular computer or motherboard. These would not be included with full retail version of Windows XP.

The region setting of the DVD drive should only affect the playback of region restricted Video DVDs. Assuming you do not want any of the current contents of the hard drive, what happens if you try rebooting with the Windows XP installation disc in the drive?
