Accidentally visited a hacker site

Q: Accidentally visited a hacker site

I was perusing a site forum, and opened the link to a member's personal webpage, which turns out to be a known hacker site (which I found out after the fact). The site triggered an insane reaction from my browser, which cuased hundreds of pop-ups and audio. The pop ups were halted by my comp/antivirus/etc, causing them to never display any images, but the boxes multipled endlessly until I used ALT+F4 to close the browser. Since then, my comp has been working poorly, and CCLEANER ended up "cleaning" a size of 70 MB the other day when it normally never exceeds 16 MB after a comp restart. Many of the files in the cleanup process were labeled binaries, which may be good or bad. (Right?)Anyway, I've run mrt, defender, and did a mcafee scan (all FULL scans) for the past 2 days but nothing "negative" has been found. But my comp is acting different and I am slightly paranoid, so I ran hijackthis today and was wondering if someone could analyze the results and ease my mind.Any help is GREATLY appreciated.Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2Scan saved at 8:59:52 AM, on 6/24/2009Platform: Windows Vista SP2 (WinNT 6.00.1906)MSIE: Internet Explorer v8.00 (8.00.6001.18702)Boot mode: NormalRunning processes:C:\Windows\system32\Dwm.exeC:\Windows\system32\taskeng.exeC:\Program Files\McAfee.com\Agent\mcagent.exeC:\Program Files\Synaptics\SynTP\SynTPEnh.exeC:\Program Files\SiteAdvisor\6172\SiteAdv.exeC:\Windows\RtHDVCpl.exeC:\Windows\System32\igfxpers.exeC:\Program Files\Toshiba\ConfigFree\NDSTray.exeC:\Windows\System32\igfxtray.exeC:\Windows\System32\hkcmd.exeC:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\jusched.exeC:\Windows\System32\spool\drivers\w32x86\3\EKIJ5000MUI.exeC:\Windows\system32\igfxsrvc.exeC:\Program Files\iTunes\iTunesHelper.exeC:\Program Files\Toshiba\TOSCDSPD\TOSCDSPD.exeC:\Windows\ehome\ehtray.exeC:\Program Files\Windows Sidebar\sidebar.exeC:\Program Files\Windows Media Player\wmpnscfg.exeC:\Windows\ehome\ehmsas.exeC:\Windows\system32\wbem\unsecapp.exeC:\Program Files\Toshiba\ConfigFree\CFSwMgr.exeC:\Program Files\Synaptics\SynTP\SynTPHelper.exeC:\Windows\Explorer.EXEC:\Program Files\Verizon Wireless\VZAccess Manager\VZAccess Manager.exeC:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exeC:\Windows\system32\SearchFilterHost.exeC:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis\HijackThis.exeR1 -

Preferred Solution: Accidentally visited a hacker site

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.)

About a year ago I heard an ad for a free laptop on the radio and it gave a website to look. I started to register but got worried I was going to receive a bunch of spam and "X"ed out without completely regristrating. The problem is, I did not delete my email address before "X"ing out. Ever since then I've been bombarded, at least 20 emails daily, for the past year. Marking them as spam has no effect. Does any body have any idea how I can get the emails to STOP!!!!! Thanks much.

Something is way wrong. I'm getting multiple repeat messeges from Symantec email proxy stating "your emial was unable to be sent" I can persist in closing these windows and after a while they stop. Somewhere along the way I'll get a pop up saying I need to install an "Adobe" product - "Flash Player" I believe. and after a while later I get multiple web pages pop up when I haven't opened my browser.

I visited a web site last night to check if the address had already been taken.

When I arrived at the site I got a pop-up saying I had been hacked and then got a warning from Avira in the mozilla cache folder. I selected the option to deny access.

The offending site's address: hxxp://nexus.webs.com (if I am not allowed to post the address, I'll edit the post) - is there a way for someone here to please tell me what exactly the website did to my computer?

Did it install a keylogger on my computer? I'm on a different computer at the moment just to be safe.

Accumulation of spyware and other junk has seized my workstation.I started killing processes and removing files after Adaware et al. were at least partially ineffective. Random popups when browsing are the major complaint, though I'm concerned there are plenty of other items floating around. NAV reported some Trojan viruses, but it was never clear as to whether or not they were ever cleaned. As I began poking at the bad software, they just seemed to get angrier and multiplied faster. At one point, I was certain that I had won, as no ill effects struck me as I continued working - until I opened a web browser, then the proverbial bleep hit the fan.For a while, I was unable to load Explorer.exe, and thus had little way to use the computer, though I was able to run other programs through the task manager, since the Start bar was missing. I finally renamed the file iuput.dll and was able to start explorer.exe and can now use the computer as normal.I followed some of the procedure listed on this site, but I need to get this computer clean of all active baddies.Here's my HijackThis log file contents:Logfile of HijackThis v1.99.1Scan saved at 4:24:10 PM, on 7/7/2006Platform: Windows XP SP2 (WinNT 5.01.2600)MSIE: Internet Explorer v6.00 SP2 (6.00.2900.2180)Running processes:C:\WINDOWS\System32\smss.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\csrss.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exeC:\WINDOWS\system3...

A:Visited The Wrong Site, Now Infected

Hello there, It is a good idea to print off these instructions - they will be needed later when internet access is not available. You may also like to save these instructions in word/notepad to the desktop where they can be easily found for the same reasons as above. It is important that you complete the following instructions in the correct order, and also that you don't miss anything out! Your system is terribly infected. Problem with these infections nowadays is, it causes a lot of damage. Even if we clean the malware off your system, I can't guarantee that your system will be clean afterwards, because these infections/bundles leave a lot of leftovers behind that most scanners won't even recognise and logs won't show. Also, I can't promise you we can repair all the damage it caused... Even after cleaning the malware, you can still get errors afterwards because of the damage. Solving these is not always possible since it will be searching for a needle in a haystack to find the right cause and solution. So, we can try to clean this up and do what we can, but keep in mind that we can't solve ALL problems this malware already caused. * Go to start > controlpanel > software > add/remove programs and uninstall next if present:SurfSideKick 3OinYazzle by OinPurityscan by OinSnowballwars by OinCowabanga by OIN or anything similar with Oin in it.* Please run the uninstaller by using the tutorial found here:http://www.outerinfo.com/howto.htmlThen Reboot!

You have picked up the WareOut infection.

Please subscribe to this thread to be notified of fixes as soon as they are posted by our Team. To do this, please click the "Thread Tools" button located in the original thread line and selecting "Subscribe to this Thread".

Before you begin, take a read through these instructions and download the programs that I've advised. Save the below instructions in notepad or wordpad, because you also have to work in safe mode without networking support, so this page wouldn't be available then. You should not have any browsers open during the cleaning process unless otherwise prompted.

If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should not have any open browsers when you are carrying out the procedures below.

Please allow yourself a few spare hours. Below are instructions for a virus scan(s) that can take longer then 2 hours.

It is also important you don't miss a step and perform everything in the right order!! .

Hi there
Is it possible in IE8 / IE9 to make the History page show sites in LAST VISITED order. I.e the site you just visited is AT THE TOP of say todays date.

The default alphabetical method IMO is totally useless if you've visited a lot of sites and you want to go back to one you've forgotten the name of but you remember it was probably for example in the last 5 or 6 sites visited.

I can get the info from a server log but I should be able to get it directly in the history page in the browser.


A:IE8 / IE9 History in Site Visited order ?

The history window has a "view by" drop list at the top and one of the choices is "order visited" which does that very thing

Using XP home edition.
I recently joined a Christmas card site to send E-cards and everything went okay.
Today I wanted to send a New Years E-card but upon revisiting the site, I found I couldn't view any of the cards and got a blank screen with a small red 'x' in the top left-hand corner. I refreshed the screen but no joy. Then I altered security levels to minimum to see if that'd fix things - it didn't so I altered them back to default.
Any ideas what could be wrong please?

Thanks in anticipation,

I stepped away from my computer for awhile and when I came back my computer was turned off. Then when I turned it back on I checked HiJackFree. And it showed an open port for an Online Keylogger. I ran a virus scan with no results. But After shutting down for awhile. And coming back. Im very concerned about something still infecting my computer even though I ran HiJackFree again and have found nothing that I can notice. What security hole did they use and how do I patch something that seems to have been able to shutdown my computer remotely. I dont have most of my remote services enabled if not all of them. Some sites are just down right evil.

However, I do not have Java installed but I did install it awhile ago and removed it and I have 2 Browser Helper Objects (BHOs) for Java in my registry I noticed from the HiJackFree logs. I also had javascript running when I visited the site so I really need a run down on what to do.

Following a visit to a site upon which a 'gif' file dodged my popup blocker I decided to do some scans.

When the panda scan is done I'll post more about it.I'm running an A squared scan now also and another Kaspersky scan. When the A squared scan is done, I'll post again about its findings.

How to force IE 11 to ask for saving credentials again for just one web site, after having accidentally sellect not to remember password for that particular site. Please, take into account that:

- I'm totally aware that storing credentials is not a good security practice, but in my particular case this is what I need to do.

- I know that reseting IE or similar approachs will do the job, but doing that I'll lost more tan 70 web sites credentials. I need a solution not involving loose all the web credentials stored.
- I also know that there is way to do the trick "lying" to IE using a modified but similar username, but this only works in some web sites, depending on the kind of login mechanism used. In my particulare case this trick also does not work.
- I also know that there was a registry hack for this particular problem, but this does not work with IE last versions.

I just recieved a new wireless web PC card that was was preactivated by my employeer. is there a way to tell if this way of connecting to the internet is allowing my employeer to view both the sites visited and any other files on my computer? Thank you for any information and help.

A:Web-sites Visited

If your employer has never had access to your computer.. in short ...no.If your employer doesn't know your ip address of your internet connection, ... no.If he has any of the above,.. then theoretically, yes.But from what you explained, it appears that the employer payed for a wireless pc web card, and activated it, probably so he/she can get a rebate back. That's my take on it.If you feel game, just reinstall your os, and you'll know from then on he/she can't be monitoring you.If the computer belongs to them, then yes, they can see everything you do it, if they installed the programs. And when I say everything... that's what I mean. They can install key-loggers and other monitoring software on that computer... and at any given time, all they have to do is hit a button or 2, and they can sit back and watch every-single thing you've done on your computer... all the way down to showing them the web sites in plain view. And they can track you by your keystrokes and mouse clicks. In other words, they can tell everything you typed, all the way down to the capital H and the lowercase h.But if it's a job related computer or it belongs to them,.. just be careful as to what you do on it, because it's not hard to tell what you've been doing on it.

OK, so my girlfriend (really! not me!) had her ex come & stay with her for a couple of days, and he did "a bunch of stuff" on her computer. She is concerned that he did something to it that might make it possible for him to remotely moniter her usage, what sites she visits, maybe even read her email. She knows nothing about the computer except how to turn it on, and he is a serious enthusiast. His personality (imho) is such that he would be gratified in some (sick & perverted) way by having this sort of perceived power over her and he is technically very capable.

How can I check & reassure her? I'll run ad aware but other than that (which I really don't know will do any good either but it won't hurt) I don't have any idea what to look for or what to do.

She has a brand new Dell package deal system and is using AOL for email & internet.

Any suggestions (about the computer issue!) would be greatly appreciated.

You probably need to change the 'cookie' settings. Allow all cookies from that specific forum, it will then automatically 'mark' the threads you have visited, by showing them in a different color (or go from e.g. bold to normal script)

i need to delete all visited sites in my personal computer, also down loaded files

A:delete visited sites

In your browser:

for Mozilla Firefox - go to Tools > Clear private data > check the boxes you need - Browsing History, Download history, Cache, Cookies, Offline website data
You can set your browser to do this after each session of net browsing by going to Tools > Options > Privacy tab > Private data > tick the box for "always clear........" > settings button and check those boxes mentioned above ( browsing history etc.)
This will mean you will have to login to sites requiring passwords each time.

for Internet Explorer - go to Tools > Internet Options > General tab > Browsing History > Delete... and choose either "delete all" if you want all things gone or choose the ones you think you need to be rid of.
You can also go into Start > All programs > accessories > system tools > disk cleanup and tick (among others) Downloaded program files, Temporary internet files, offline webpages, temporary files, thumbnails

Hope this helps

I'm suddenly unable to access my most visited websites - namely AOL Mail, Facebook, and some of the blogs I visit most often. Everything else, even graphic-intensive sites, seem fine. My firewall is not blocking Firefox.

System info:
Intel Core 2 Duo CPU T5750 @ 2.00GHz
32-bit OS
Vista Home Premium
Service Pack 1

A:Can't access most visited websites?

Hmm... Did you tried disableing the firewall and the typing this sites? Do you run an antivir. program? if yes, which?

how I can remove previous visited web sites from the harddrive using win xp-home edition. Thank you

A:removing visited web sites

Hi macleriv

That depends on how deep you want to go

Go to tools\internet options\ click "delete files" and "clear history"
You can also delete cookies from here - but remember to keep a list of website passwords - you'll need to use them again after deleting cookies

I've heard that even after you delete your history on IE a record remains and can be accessed to see your surfing habits. Is this true and if so is there any way to stop it? I also use Firefox - does the same thing apply there?

Hope someone can help.

A:History of Sites Visited

It's true as far as IE is concerned but I don't know about Firefox.

There is a viewer called @Winspy which allows you to see what is being stored, particularly in index.dat files. Scroll down this page and d/l the free viewer referred to there;http://www.acesoft.net/delete_index.dat_files.htm

Index.dat files can't be cleaned/deleted while Windows is running, but various tools, some free, claim to do it at reboot. Javacool's MRU Blaster has an option to clean index.dat, as does CCleaner. Both of them also claim to clear things called User Assist files, which (allegedly) also store similar information to that found in index.dat files.

Have a look at the third item on this page;http://www.utdallas.edu/~jbs024000/software/index.html

Hello, you know how in IE visited links have a different colour to links not clicked, but after a set time, they change back to normal colours. Is there any way to change the length of time they remain as visited links?
