Threaded View
I get hijacked every now and then to qksrv website.  I've used norton AV,
the scanner from symantecs website. Nothing shows up as wrong. I can't find
any reference to qksrv when checking my puter? Anyone have any similiar
experience?
Thanks,
Dave

If you are using any version of Sun Java that is prior to JRE Version 5.0 update
5,
then you are strongly urged to remove any/all versions that are prior to JRE/JSE
Version 5.0 update 5.  There are vulnerabilities in them and they are actively
being
exploited.  It is possible that is how you got infected with malware.

Therefore, it is highly suggested that if there are any prior versions of Sun
Java
to Version 5 on the PC that they be removed and Sun Java JRE/JSE Version 5.0
Update 6
be installed ASAP.

Simple check, look under...
C:\Program Files\Java

The only folder under that folder should be the latest version...

C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.5.0_06

For non-viral malware...

Please download, install and update the following software...

* Ad-aware SE v1.06
  http://www.lavasoft.de /
  http://www.lavasoftusa.com /
  http://www.lavasoft.de/ms/index.htm

* SpyBot Search and Destroy v1.4
  http://security.kolla.de /
  http://www.safer-networking.org/microsoft.en.html

* SuperAntiSpyware
  http://www.superantispyware.com/superantispywarefreevspro.html

After the software is updated, I suggest scanning the system in Safe Mode.

I also suggest downloading, installing and updating BHODemon for any Browser
Helper Objects
that may be on the PC.

* BHODemon

For viral malware...

* Download MULTI_AV.EXE from the URL --
  http://www.ik-cs.com/programs/virtools/Multi_AV.exe

To use this utility, perform the following...
Execute; Multi_AV.exe { Note: You must use the default folder C:\AV-CLS }
Choose; Unzip
Choose; Close

Execute; C:\AV-CLS\StartMenu.BAT
{ or Double-click on 'Start Menu' in C:\AV-CLS }

NOTE: You may have to disable your software FireWall or allow WGET.EXE to go
through your
FireWall to allow it to download the needed AV vendor related files.

C:\AV-CLS\StartMenu.BAT -- { or Double-click on 'Start Menu' in C:\AV-CLS}
This will bring up the initial menu of choices and should be executed in Normal
Mode.
This way all the components can be downloaded from each AV vendor's web site.
The choices are; Sophos, Trend, McAfee, Kaspersky, Exit this menu and Reboot the
PC.

You can choose to go to each menu item and just download the needed files or you
can
download the files and perform a scan in Normal Mode. Once you have downloaded
the files
needed for each scanner you want to use, you should reboot the PC into Safe Mode
[F8 key
during boot] and re-run the menu again and choose which scanner you want to run
in Safe
Mode.  It is suggested to run the scanners in both Safe Mode and Normal Mode.

When the menu is displayed hitting 'H' or 'h' will bring up a more comprehensive
PDF help
file.  http://www.ik-cs.com/multi-av.htm

Hi Jim:

Its a weird saga.

Version 5 update 7 was offered but seemd to have been pulled so I changed my
template to v5
update 6.

Now the field has changed again since v5 update 8 has been released  :-)

If there's anything wrong with the version they pulled you would have
thought they would try to resolve the situation for those who
downloaded and installed it.

I had to download the latest version manually again. v7 didn't feel
the need to update to v8 just as v6-b05 wouldn't update to v7 last
time. :(
