malware responsible for yahoo hack?

Q: malware responsible for yahoo hack?

although i have scanned like crazy and found nothing, recently my wife's yahoo profile was hacked/changed by someone else. i was concerned for trojan/keylogger (less likely phishing scam as my wife hasn't done anything like that) and have changed all my important pw's on another offsite computer. however, yesterday IE closed and a new browser window made to look like windows security alert for trojans popped up. it did imitate a win defender-like window which was in fact part of the html as well as a popup yellow box in lower left to imitate win msg popup. Suggestions? i have run malwarebytes, norton, adware, spybot. looked at my hijack log(though i am fairly novice to it, but uploaded for analysis).

i am dl;ing combofix. Any suggestions? i am now also concerned... about identity theft?!?>

Preferred Solution: malware responsible for yahoo hack?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Important!! HijackThis and GMER are also affected so I CAN NOT include a HijackThis or GMER log with my post.

This morning everything seemed to be working fine, I left for a couple hours and when I came back a few things had gone screwy and I assumed that some virus had taken hold while I was gone so I went to scan and discovered that all my security programs were dead. They ran for a few seconds before they closed. Upon trying to open them again I get the message that Windows can not access the specified device, path or file.

This is affecting Spyware Terminator, MalwareBytes and HijackThis.

I have no idea what is causing the problem as the virus didn't make itself known like the others I've dealt with. Only clue that something is wrong is the different problems that arose (open windows losing focus (solved), Aero theme being deactivated (mostly solved), security being broken)

Searching hasn't produced anything useful so I'm hoping I can find some help here.

My wife has had a instance happen where Yahoo Said that she was signed into another computer when she does not have Yahoo Messenger installed on any of our other computers. Then, Yahoo automatically signed her out. Also, while on multiple websites we are frequently redirected to mywebsearch, which is not set as the homepage nor do we visit this site. A week after this all started happening, my wife was stalked online by a male who's profile stated that he was from India. This individual had already gathered bits of information before contacting my wife online. I have run netstat with many of its extensions and found 4 unknown protocols including one unknown firefox executable. The netstat reports do not show any open ports while the internet connection is open within a questionable or suspicious range. The information that we have on the stalker points to the possibility that he found my wife on Yahoo and then searched for her on Facebook and Her Blog.

YAHOO IS REMAINING RELEVANT by continuing to release information about the hack on the company's systems in 2012 which has only recently come to light.
The hack was a big one, and Yahoo has tackled it publically for some time. We know, more or less, how many people were affected, and we know that a lot of them used passwords that deserve a shovel to the back of the head.
Now, thanks to a filing with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), we know that Yahoo is concerned that the hackers left some bad cookies that might still be a source of concern.
"Forensic experts are currently investigating certain evidence and activity that indicates an intruder, believed to be the same state-sponsored actor responsible for the security incident, created cookies that could have enabled the intruder to bypass the need for a password to access certain users' accounts or account information," the company said.

It was a pain but I finally dumped Yahoo mail and haven't looked back.

A:Yahoo admits that 2012 breach might include a post-hack cookie problem

LOL @ this
"Forensic experts are currently investigating certain evidence and activity that indicates an intruder, believed to be the same state-sponsored actor responsible for the security incident, created cookies that could have enabled the intruder to bypass the need for a password to access certain users' accounts or account information," the company said.

This was well known and incredibly easy to achieve, it was also common for a lot of people to create a text file and dump the cookies in there for later use because when you created a booter/chat client for yahoo's YMSG, you would save a huge amount of time through the login process by already having the cookie in a file so the only thing you validated was the cookie (No username && password needed).
manipulating the T= would allow you to set the time and date to 1/1/1970 (Convert to epoch) and login with out a password! I was doing this well before 2012 :|

I have two issues, and I want to know which one I should try to solve first.
1.   I am concerned that I may have been hacked. ( *.exe files -that seemingly are not in the right file location- connected to a local port).
2.   I believe I have malware on my PC. (Windows update not working properly, Microsoft Safety Scanner not recognized as a valid application, etc...)

A:possible malware or hack

Try doing a system restore.
System Restore helps you restore your computer's system files to an earlier point in time. Typically, you want to restore your computer to a restore point that was created just before the date and time when you started noticing problems. The descriptions of the restore points that are created automatically correspond with the name of an event, such as Windows Update installing an update. System Restore returns your computer to the state that it was in before the restore point that you choose.
To restore system files and settings using a specific restore point
Open System Restore by clicking the Start button . In the search box, type System Restore, and then, in the list of results, click System Restore.‍  If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

Do one of the following:

If there is a recommended restore point, click Choose a different restore point, and then click Next.

If there isn't a recommended restore point, click Next.

Click the restore point that you want, and then click Next.
To view the programs and drivers that will be affected (which could include programs that will be deleted), click Scan for affected programs.

Review the restore point, and then click Finish.

Hey sixwheeler2011,

If you are worried about it being a virus or something give this a go:

Do a full scan of your system using: Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows

Afterwards: Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware download

If nothing pops up for both of those,

try: Windows Defender Offline

This is what I found on the file:

But i do have a clue, because i received a msn request to add contact, and normally, i do not add, but this time, the name looked a little familiar, so i decided to add, however, after i added, the name did not appear on my msn list nor was the email anywhere to be found. so im thinking that this could be either a virus, or that someone hacked my account. but i really have no clue how to fix this, so can someone pls help me! thanks.

Tor Developer Created Malware for FBI To Hack Tor Users « Antiwar.com Blog

Tor Developer Created Malware for FBI To Hack Tor Users

Peter Van Buren, May 05, 2016
Print This | Share This | Comment
Espionage works like this: identify a target who has the info you need. Determine what he wants to cooperate (usually money.) Be sure to appeal to his vanity and/or patriotism. Create a situation where he can never go back to his old life, and give him a path forward where it favors his ongoing cooperation in a new life. Recruit him, because you own him.

The FBI appears to have run a very successful, very classic, textbook recruitment on the guy above, Matt Edman, to use his insider-knowledge to defeat one of the best encryption/privacy software tools available. Aloha, privacy, and f*ck you, Fourth Amendment rights against unwarranted search and seizure.

Edman is a former Tor Project developer who created malware for the FBI that allows agents to unmask users of the anonymity software.

I've been hacked by whatever's going around this week, (http://www.slate.com/blogs/future_tense/2012/09/24/twitter_direct_message_hack_facebook_youtube_video_links_lead_to_malware.html) and yes, by clicking a link and logging into what I thought was a twitpic app from facebook from a trusted friend who often sends me such things. Here's the problem. I did it on my phone, and yes on my mac using chrome. I never downloaded any .exe files, only gave this facebook app what I thought were my facebook credentials. When I realized what was happening, I changed passwords for both accounts, and revoked app permissions for both as well. Problem solved, right?

48 hours later I appear to be reinfected, and my twitter account is sending direct messages again with spam links. I can only guess two things: 1) it's a chrome extension that's perpetuating the thing or 2) it's the windows partition of my mac (which I haven't been using at all lately) since I run bootcamp on it.

Any suggestions, criticisms (yes I'm a f*g idiot this time and not usually prone to such stupidity), or solutions are welcome.

I have noticed some strange behavior on my computer as of late, and I couldn't really figure out what was going on. Some previously-reliable programs would close immediately upon running them, strange pop-ups showing up while I wasn't at the computer, general stuff like this. Today, I noticed something bizarre. Poking around in the task manager I saw 2 programs running that I don't usually see there.


Typically when I see a program that is unfamiliar in the task manager I just do a google search. Virtually every program, malicious or legit, will return some hits from a basic google search, but not these. As a matter of fact, I could never even get a google search to work. As soon as I hit enter with either of the programs as my search parameters Firefox closes. Same thing with IE. If I remove the .exe from the search then it doesn't close, but the search still came up fruitless. This had me very perplexed and frustrated, of course.

My next course of action was to do a basic Windows Search function for either program, doing grwwxgp.exe first. The only thing it came up with was...


That is located in C:\Windows\Prefatch. I decided to open the file with Notepad to see if I could find any clues, and there is a TON of stuff there. Most of the text in the body was foreign looking characters with solid black blocks mixed in, but there was some interesting stuff in the middle.

Hello everyone. I was reading an MSNBC news article about hacking to which they linked to this site. Stupid me I clicked it and it was loading a lot of crap. I closed the browser, but it opened up like 3 times everytime I tried to close it before finally closing...It wasn't pop ups either. The site itself was opening back up.Did I just get hacked? And why would MSNBC freakin' link to it? Btw, here's the news article, (legit, it isn't malware or anything):http://technolog.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2011/05/24/6706778-hackers-stupid-sony-so-very-stupidThey have the link in there and now I'm paranoid...I did two different virus scans, one using Malwarebytes, another with Symantec. Neither found anything. So what happened? I appreciate any help.Edit: Moved topic from XP to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

A:Is thehackernews.com a legit site or was I tricked? Malware/hack?

If you have had no problems since rebooting your machine, and your Malwarebytes and antivirus runs clean, you are probably OK.

Hello. I have been scanning my PC almost nonstop for the past 5 days trying to get rid of the invasions. I will try to be as descriptive as possible as this started a few days ago and I've been trying to get rid of the pests myself. Last Thursday evening, while browsing the web in Firefox Portable, my Norton firewall pops up with a warning of a blocked intrusion, Low or Medium risk. A moment later, a Windows prompt says that some file [?] could not be found. Suspicious, I close the prompt with the "X" rather than "OK". I get more popups, little empty windows, with the title Form1 and they pop up repeatedly. I also remember seeing the word DDE. I suppose 'DDE' and 'Form1' are related. Then, something called, 'internet speed monitor' starts opening up in IE. Norton now pops ups with a red alert saying that I have a virus. I immediately begin scanning with Avast and searching forums for solutions. I was able to uninstall Internet Speed Monitor with Add/Remove programs, but the intrusion doesn't end there.

I booted into safe mode and scanned with Combofix, Dr. Web, and various anti-spyware programs. Thinking I could fix this myself, I deleted whatever was found to be malicious, which probably wasn't the best thing to do. At the moment, the strange popups have ceased and everything seems normal, but every Dr. Web scan shows more of the same or similar objects, such as A000xxxxx.exe. or A0000073.exe, Tool.Prockill, Tool.ShutDown.11, and other hack tools.

The US government has charged hackers over the largest ever hacking case in financial history.
The US Court of the Southern District of New York has charged three men accused of hacking into many financial institutions, including JPMorgan Chase that, according to the officials, was "the largest theft of user data from a U.S. financial institution in history."
JPMorgan Chase is one of the world's biggest banks that controls total assets worth more than $2.59 Trillion.
The three men, including Gery Shalon, Ziv Orenstein, and Joshua Samuel Aaron were charged with 23 counts, including hacking, identity theft, securities fraud, and money laundering, among others.

A week ago, I made the mistake of visiting a website for video game cheats - I think I picked up some malware or (gulp) a rootkit during my time there. Especially distressing, because I tend to make surfing in paranoid mode an art form. Shortly afterwards, my PC would keep running for minutes on end. When I tried to shut it off, I got a small windows pop up that popped away so quickly I couldn't read it. Shortly afterward, I noticed that the process 604BC32A-9680-40D1-9AC6-E06B23A1BA4C was running, and sucking down up to 2-3 gigabytes a run. I've terminated it, and since got back over ten GB of storage, and no further drains. I then ran a defrag, which temporarily sped up the computer. I noticed afterward that my Instant Messenger software was missing my buddy icon until I logged on, and some of my permissions were gone (I chalked that up to the defrag). Next time I logged on, everything was as it should have been. The computer became severely slow after running SuperAntiSpyware, Malware Bytes and two Norton scans in a row, but this is typical of the unit. Otherwise, no problems, except when I type there is occasionally a slight dragCurrently, my main problems are all video and audio related:On youtube and streaming video sites, the video quality has suddenly become very poor.

hello all,

I have recieved from yahoo to my gmail account, a 'work from home' ( newslocal15 ) spam email that was sent by a biz partner's yahoo account. Unfortunately, it looked just like an email that this person would send concerning various news and such ( otherwise I would have never clicked the link ). So I saw the page, and deemed it immediately to be spam. I closed the page. However, soon after, one of my secondary accounts ( this one is yahoo ) started sending out the same spam mail.

My initial question is: does anyone here have previous experience with this? Is it a hack on the yahoo servers, a hack on my account, or is it from a downloaded virus?

I have good AV. I ran a scan and found nothing. However, i realize that this isnt 100%. I have already changed my account passwords at yahoo, and I dont allow my PC to save passwords.

I have not added any logs at this point, because I dont want to waste anyones time if the TSG experts already know it is not an issue with my PC. However, I will of course add a log here if it is needed. I have researched it for many hours and so far no one seems to agree, so I came here since my past experience is that the people who help on these forums are top notch.

Thanks in advance for any available help in this matter!

I am the IT manager in my company.

I have a co-worker, his computer has search redirect issue. That means most likely it has malware.
Then i installed some major malware removal: Spybot Search & Destroy, SUPERAntiSpyware, Malwarebytes

After i installed them, i cannot launch them(That definitely means it has some kind of malwares)
I needed to rename their .exe files, after i can run them and scan my computer.

SUPERAntiSpyware, Malwarebytes found something, but didn't solve the problem, search redirect and
blocking malware removal software are still there. Now i am running Spybot Search & Destroy will see what happened.

By the way, i run them in safe mode because when i logon window to normal mode, it is slow (like it takes a long time to explore hard drive, etc). I suspect the malware slow down my pc. hopefully not registry corrupted or something, but works smoothly in safe mode.

So you guys have any suggestions? or you need a log file from combofix?

Part of our strategy to do the right thing for our teenage offspring is to try and limit the amount of time they spend glued to the computer screen playing online games etc. We've tried parental management functions in our router to put time limits on IP leases but it turns out our isp has disabled those functions in the router. So I've tried setting up user accounts with password access. Waste of time because a 2 second search of Google finds 15 ways to circumvent account passwords. I know there must be a way to lock it down so the devious little blighters can't discover the passwords. I also want to know how to block access to a certain IP address so they can't log in to the router and find or change the Wi-Fi password. Can somebody give me some pointers at all?

...Perhaps you are copying a 14 GIG file (not actually applicable) ....more or less.... within/on the same hard drive. That will take some effort and time. What component is responsible for its speed in doing so.

My guess is the GHtz of the motherboard.

A:What Component Of The System Is Responsible.........

Since this sounds very much like a school type question. You also ask for links to support the answer so you can add them as resource when you answer this question.

I'll answer it this way. There are multiple factors that control the speed of file transfer. Processor speed is not the major factor. But I'll say this, one of the major factors that affects file transfer speed on a HDD is the quantity of HDD cache.

The rest you'll have to google. And you'll find a lot of information and some links you can honestly say you found on your own.

Hi all,

i have some trouble on my machine with Windows 8.1 (non pro version) - let's call it "server". I just bought new antivirus program with firewall (BitDefender Total Security 2017). On "server" side i have few shares with WebDAV protocol
(on SSL). With firewall off i can easy connect via SSL and map network drives via WebDAV protocol on clients machines. Problem occurs when i turn on firewall from BitDefender. Then i can't connect. So i need to create rule that will pass WebDAV traffic. And
here is a problem - BitDefender software can create rules only for specific *.exe file. I talked with BitdDefender staff about this problem for few weeks for now, but they solve (for now, only 1!) doesn't work and they told me that in that AV i can't open
port for non *.exe file... 

So this is my question - which file (specific exe, application) in Windows 8.1 x64 non pro are responsible for webdav communication on SSL, and where i can find it (path)?  I need to add firewall this exe file with 443 port to work ... I will be very
grateful for any answers ... :)

Firefox has been having sudden frequent crashes. Internet Explorer shuts down and gives me the message "runtime error." These crashes most often happen on the three main websites we use most frequently (Yahoo, Facebook, and a weather website). There is no warning when the crashes happen.

I've tried all the Firefox crash troubleshooting suggestions, with no satisfactory results. I regularly run scans with Malwarebytes, SUPERAntiSpyware Free, and AVG Free. AVG does pick up something called STDRT.EXE whenever I run a Super Mario game that we downloaded. AVG gives me the option of sending to virus vault, or "allowing". I've done both. I'm fairly sure that STDRT.EXE is not the culprit, since we've been playing Mario for a couple months, and the crashes have just happened in the last couple days. I'm no expert of course, which is why I'm here for help. Since the crashes started happening, I have dumped the Mario game onto a cd and uninstalled it from the computer.

I've also tried to do a system restore to a few dates previous to when this problem started, but it says "unable to restore" or something of that nature.....

Well, this is the first time that I have had to post here despite the numerous virus and malware infections I have had to deal with. For the first time the combination of CA AntiVirus and MalwareBytes has failed to clear a problem. CA Antivirus reports an infection of Vundo.CEH in a file "C:\Windows\system32\cyzystno.dll", and I cannot get this file deleted. CA-AV cannot quarintine the file, MWB cannot deal with it, Killbox cannot touch it (Rename function over-ridden by a system process), etc. There are no other viruses detected by the antivirus scan. I come waving my white flag and posting my log file. I consider myself an expert PC user, programmer and system builder, but I confess I am beat. I'm planning on having a backup boot partition from now on to better facilitate the deletion of such files in the future. <sigh>...I remember when Vundo was easy.

So here is a weird problem, that I probably caused myself. While I had a bluescreen problem I googled several things and tried possible solutions, that was a month ago, so I don't know exactly what I did, and I just started using this computer again.

I think I disabled sideshow or sideshow gadgets. Now, I can't install my Logitech G15 Keyboard anymore (Blue backlight version). It says installed but the program is not on the harddrive and the functionality of the keyboards LCD and media keys is not given. I can use the volume wheel but not play/pause, skip, stop etc. The display also shows no information, just the logitech logo like it does when its not installed. I think I uninstalled the driver/gamepanel software when it gave an error about sideshow. I already tried reenabling it, but that does nothing.

Windows also says a USB driver is not installed, like for the port it seems. Other USB things work fine.

The weird thing is that it doesn't even install the program, it is not in the folder on the HDD, and the install wizard completes in like one second.
Already tried downloading different versions of it, but no luck.

Using Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

So how do I get it working again? What could be the thing causing this? Thankful for everyone trying to help

A:Sideshow gadgets responsible for not installing G15 software?

Because your running the keyboard through a USB port it's power consumption is controlled by the CPU. When you plug in the keyboard to the computer it should send a report to the CPU telling it how much power it consumes (max). The controller chip then decides how much of the "pool" of power gets distributed to which device and how much (per cycle).
Rant Simply put in another way - lets say your mother\father sent you out to get a bucket of water every day from the water hole. This hole every day fills up to exactly six litres, you ask the water controller this is my bucket it holds exactly five litres of water may I have this much water please? It would reply yes, but the water controller knows it has others wanting to share the remaining litre so your request gets queued, you still get your five litres per day just not all in one refill.
So what be happening is that there are too many devices trying to consume too much of a single resource. Depending what else you may be using your USB ports for maybe try this drivercleanup thread#post875300 by @LookinAround

How can I determine exactly what firewall rule is blocking particular data?
I have an application that gets all the way through opening an FTP connection and logging onto the FTP server, but then stalls on mput (the actual upload command), leaving a zero-byte file on the FTP server. The log reveals that the FW is blocking port 20
(the FTP data port) even though it is not blocking port 21 (the command port). That explains why it stalls only when it gets to the actual file upload. Here is a sample DROP line from the log:
 2016-03-24 22:19:06 DROP TCP [FTP server address] [Workstation address] 20 49432 60 S 2753606402 0 29200 - - - RECEIVE
I added an explicit TCP Allow rule for remote port 20, and this allowed the process to complete the upload correctly. But then I disabled it for further testing and then re-enabled it--and now the process is again stalling on the FTP data transfer.
I cannot understand is why this process is not blocked on other stations not having explicit port 20 rules. But it seems that it would be most useful to somehow trace all of this to what (rule), explicitly, is blocking port 20 on this workstation and/or
allowing it on other workstations.
