Hijacked Gmail - HJT Log attached

By macx
Nov 11, 2009
  1. Friend of mine with XP who uses MSN and Gmail has found that someone
    has been able to use his email to send emails, and he said he has read other
    Gmail users with the same problem. He says his security is something called
    WebRoot, something I've never heard of.

    About 2 weeks ago we went thru the 8 step process and found very little in
    any of the scans, nothing more than tracking cookies etc, but he has recently found that the email hijacking is still occurring. I don't know enough to tell if anything that came up in HJT might be related.

    I downloaded the latest HJT version last nite and did a scan.
    Thanks for any info!

    Oh, he changed his password last nite, too. I understand that Gmail may
    be vulnerable just thru passwords rather than actually hacking into it?

    I attached the log into the original post "Hijacked Gmail" last nite and
    now the forum won't let me reattach it here, so please go to the
    original post and check it out.

    I had already posted it in the original thread "Hijacked Gmail" and then realized nobody would know there was a log in there, so created this thread and tried to post it again, even with a changed name, but the Forum kept telling me I had already posted it and it wouldn't let me post it again (?)

    So, It's in the original thread a little ways down titled "Hijacked Gmail" -

    Thanks for asking!

    There is a program called Combofix. It is very powerful but you have to be very careful to read the instructions carefully. Here is help:
