Fake Antivirus and Porn Popup from Facebook [Solved/Closed]

- - Latest reply:  syr - Jun 13, 2010 at 08:29 PM
Hello,

I somehow got a virus on my other computer running windows vista/firefox. I was surfing facebook and directly after adding my nephew as a friend I got a fake antivirus software popup. Knowing it was some sort of malware or spyware I immediately attempted to close it. The popup wouldnt close. Shortly after multiple fake windows alerts starting popping up saying my computer is infected and I need to run my antivirus software. I was already running a full comprehensive scan with Norton 360 but it was running very slowly. Then mulitple porn popups began opening in internet explorer. So I turned off my wireless switch disabling the internet. Closed all the annoying popups and tryed to continue the scan. All of the popups began opening again. And the "windows" error messages continued. So I attempted to find the .exe file in the task manager to manually stop it and could not find the file. I then rebooted in safe mode and attempted to run a full scan that way but the scan is not working. I am at a loss now. If anyone can help me figure out what virus this is and how to get rid of it that would be great...

Thanks,
Dot

Thank you
Greetings

Your are my 11th patient in the past two weeks.

Here is how to get rid of this scam rogue virus designed to get to your credit card account and it is a good thing you did not fall for it.

Please follow the following procedure carefully and to the letter.

You have a rogue virus Trojan Horse which is self protective, thus it will prevent any antivirus from fonctionning.

You must kill the processes which the virus is presently running. If you don't it will keep reproducing the files for ever.

To kill the processes:

1. Download to your desktop and run Rogue Kill:

http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/grinler/rkill.com

2. You should now see a window that shows all of your desktop icons, including the rkill.com program.

3. Double-click on the rkill.com in order to automatically attempt to stop any processes associated with the Rogue programs. Please be patient while the program looks for various malware programs and ends them. When it has finished, the black window will automatically close and you can continue with the next step.

If you get a message that rkill is an infection, do not be concerned. This message is just a fake warning given by the Horse when it terminates programs that may potentially remove it. If you run into these infections warnings that close Rkill, a trick is to leave the warning on the screen and then run Rkill again. By not closing the warning, this typically will allow you to bypass the malware trying to protect itself so that rkill can terminate the processes . So, please try running Rkill until malware is no longer running.

As a matter of a fact, if you get messages, it is a sign that the virus is agonizing with excrutiating pain, so you can just grin while it is suffering!:)))

Please, DO NOT REBOOT your computer or the processes will come back to haunt you!

Download to your desktop Malwarebyte.

Once on your desktop, we must still outwit the virus.

Right click on the MBAM icon and click on rename. Rename it kioskea.exe.

Install Malwarebyte and launch it. From the second tab, update it.

Pretty please, request a FULL system scan which should take more than hour. Once the scan is finish, delete all of item that were found.

It is very important that you let Malwarebyte run for as long as it takes, in some cases the creators of Malwarebyte suggest that you go do something like watch a rerun of "Gone with the Wind" or read Tolstoy's "War and Peace".

Once your computer is clean and working normally just to be on the safe side
*Turn off system restore and wait 30 seconds,
*Turn it back on and create a new restore point.

This way it gets rid of anything bad that might have gotten saved in a restore point and you have a clean restore point to use in the near future if needed.
Do not turn it off until your computer is clean and working normally because you might need to use it if something goes wrong during the clean-up process.
It is better to go back to an infected restore point if something goes wrong then to not be able to undo changes that were damaging.

(Malwarebyte may reboot your computer, don't be alarmed. Should it happened, relaunch Malwarebyte to complete the FULL scan) You must leave Malwarebyte run no matter how long it takes. The creators of Malwarebyte recommend that you go and do something else like watch a rerun of Gone with the Wind or read Tolstoy's War and Peace.

Once all this is completed, I always suggest to delete Malwarebyte as some people have reported that it may interfere with other antivirus applications.

Please let us know about the results or I may throw a curse on your system which will cause to bark all the time.:)))

Best regards

Because a rogue trojan horse may prevent it from running, hence it is to outwit it.

Thank you
I got it on mine but I found that SpyBot 1.6.2.46 found it and clobbered the thing. Mind you I was running it at the time my PC got infercted but I updated and the immunised and did a full scan and it seems to have fixed the problem. Hope this works for you!
