Posted 24 December 2007 - 07:38 PM

I have MLB.com as my home page. It has been hijacked by a site called "hxxxttp://www.hqtube.com/?5519000000". I am running "Norton Protection Centre" and it is active at all times. I have run "Spybot - Search and Destroy", "HijackThis" and "AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5". and only partially solved the problem. I have run "regedit" and removed two suspicious entries, so now the homepage "MLB.com" will start, but never completely finishes loading. When I try to load a sub page / assocaited page i.e. a team site or news item from MLB.com it will initally load, and then after a few seconds the page is diverted "hxxxttp://www.hqtube.com/?5519000000" again.

Can anyone advise how to fix this problem? The HJT log file is attached.

Your machine is not infected (at least, if it is, its not what's causing the redirects). This has been happening for me since around xmas eve - though I've not seen it for a day or so now, so I guess the offending ad has been pulled. It seems to be a manifestation of a problem which affected DoubleClick's DART network (an advertising platform) whereby a company well-known for hosting malware ads bought some space (presumably without DoubleClick doing any verification on them) and has been, since around October this year, serving up redirects to Malware sites and now, even more memorably, hardcore porn. Until MLB.com pull their fingers offensive comment removed the problem will remain - if it happens for you, just close your browser down from the taskbar and you should be fine.

Family friendly forum. Watch the colorful language zebulebu!

Hello,

Print this topic it will make it easier for you to follow the instructions and complete all of the necessary steps.

Nothing suspicious was found on your log.

Lets clean your caches.

Go start > run type cmd and hit OK
type
ipconfig /flushdns <-- (The space between g and / is needed)

Then hit Enter, type Exit, hit Enter
*/*

If still being redirected,

Launch Notepad, and copy/paste all the blue instructions below to it.
Save in: Desktop
File Name: fixme.reg
Save as Type: All files
Click: Save

REGEDIT4

Then, disconnect from the Internet!
Next,
Back on the Desktop, double-click on the fixme.reg file you just saved and click on Yes when asked to merge the information.
Optional if the following programs are in your computer.
Note that since the Domains are deleted SpywareBlaster protection must be re-enabled. Spybot's Immunize feature must be used again, also you have to re-install IE-SpyAd if installed.

Keep me posted on the results.

Thanks for your help. Your fix worked successfully on my laptop computer, but only partially so on my Desktop computer. On the desktop I can read the MLB.com home page OK. If I go to a sub page I am randomly diverted to the Porn Site (i.e. not from every subpage or news item). I also note now that when going to the MLB.com website or sub pages that the revolving icon in each Tab is continuous, ie the IE7 logo never appears and the bottom bar is always waiting.

I have attached a revise Hijack This log for your review. I have noted the item 17 as follows "O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{F7240573-437C-4006-8F28-8168F0D3F60D}: NameServer = 203.0.178.191 203.215.29.191" as suspicious and tried to "Check" & "Fix It", to no avail. When I reboot the desktop, this item always returns! Could this be the problem???

Thanks again.

Thanks again for your continued help!

I have downloaded and run "HostsXpert". When I run the "Restore MS Hosts File" I get an error message and the program stops.
The message says "Cannot find file C:\Windows\system32\Drivers\ETC\hosts"

Also you refer to the 023 item above. Did you mean the 017 item as this is the one that keeps re-appearing when I check and Fix in "HiJack This"?

Under a default installation of Windows there should be a hosts file in the ETC subfolder.
It may have been deleted somehow.

Download the hosts.zip file from this site.
http://www.mvps.org/...p2002/hosts.htm

Extract the file in to this folder.
C:\Windows\system32\Drivers\ETC\
*/*

You can open this host file with note pad.
The file is big and will strart with this.

What I would like you to do is add this line at the bottom of the file.

127.0.0.1 www.hqtube.com/

Save the file.

Search your computer for this file hosts (no extention)
If you find a copy at any other location delete it.

Yes I'm sorry I was referreing to the O17 item. If this IP address is from your internet provider it will be recreated.

But I do not think this has anything to do with your redirection. This is generated by some malware program at hqtube.com or some other sites you visit. To stop it you may have to disable your flash activeX. Will see later.

Let me know we we stand.

Thanks for your continued support. I think the problem is solved.

I downloaded the Host.zip file as requested and extracted it the specified location. I found a smaller hosts file in another directory on both computers created by something or other called "....icalendar/" I have deleted this file on both computers.

When I rebooted my laptop and desktop ( several TIMES EACH to make sure) the hijack to the porn site no longer occurs! Phew!

I have noted that on the desktop computer, the revolver icon in the tab for the MLB.com homepage never stops, unlike sub pages or other homepages where the site icon or an IE7 icon appear when the page has finished downloading. This is not a problem on my laptop though, where the MLB icon appears when the homepage is loaded. Is this occuring on the Desktop due to Trend Internet Security, preventing the ads from Doubleclick downloading to the MLB.com homepage? Is this continuing revolver icon a problem or can I ignore ??

Thanks again - your knowledge was invaluable.

It's not a problem.

If and when MLB stop patronizing doubleclick you will have to live with it.

The hosts file you installed stops a lot of doubleclick sites. What happens when you let Trend Internet security allow doubleclik ?

The only way to stop it is possibly disable you flash activeX. If you do you may loose some other flash activities that you want.

p.s. I use that hosts file and update it every month. I suggest you do the same.

Thanks,
I will remember to add this line everytime I update the hosts file!

Is this something that "HostsExpert" should consider adding as well to their hosts file download?
