Recently hijacked WoW account

By punkerex
Mar 23, 2010
  1. Hello, 1st post and here by recommendation of my sister :)

    I believe I have recently been 'keylogged' and had to have my WoW account re-instated. I immediately had passwords/names/etc. changed and now have an authenticator to help future actions; yet I still thought this was not enough. Per my sisters guidance, she sent me here and I have done the steps required from the 8-steps to help and see if anything else may be out of my non-tech eye.

    I want to thank all now for any future help and words of advice/guidance.

    Cheers! :grinthumb

    I don't see any security issues here, but let's double check....

    Please download ComboFix from Here or Here to your Desktop.

    **Note: In the event you already have Combofix, this is a new version that I need you to download. It is important that it is saved directly to your desktop**
    1. Please, never rename Combofix unless instructed.
    2. Close any open browsers.
    3. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.
      • Very Important! Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan. They can interfere with ComboFix or remove some of its embedded files which may cause "unpredictable results".
      • Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive. If yours is not listed and you don't know how to disable it, please ask.
      NOTE1. If Combofix asks you to install Recovery Console, please allow it.
      NOTE 2. If Combofix asks you to update the program, always do so.
      • Close any open browsers.
      • WARNING: Combofix will disconnect your machine from the Internet as soon as it starts
      • Please do not attempt to re-connect your machine back to the Internet until Combofix has completely finished.
      • If there is no internet connection after running Combofix, then restart your computer to restore back your connection.
    4. Double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
    5. When finished, it will produce a report for you.
    6. Please post the "C:\ComboFix.txt" along with a new HijackThis log for further review.
    **Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall**

    Make sure, you re-enable your security programs, when you're done with Combofix.

    DO NOT make any other changes to your computer (like installing programs, using other cleaning tools, etc.), until it's officially declared clean!!!

    Not much here, either.

    Uninstall Combofix:
    Go Start > Run [Vista users, go Start>"Start search"]
    Type in:
    Combofix /Uninstall
    Note the space between the "Combofix" and the "/Uninstall"
    Click OK (Vista users - press Enter).
    Restart computer.

    ========================================================================

    Please run a BitDefender Online Scan

    • Disable your antivirus program.
    • Click Start Scanner button.
    • Click Start scan button
    • Allow browser plug-in to be installed when prompted.
    • Click I Agree to agree to the EULA.
    • Please refrain from using the computer until the scan is finished.
    • When the scan is finished, click on View log.
    • Notepad will open with scan results.
    • Save the report to your desktop and post its content in your next reply.

    Post fresh HijackThis log as well.

    Ok so update.

    So far all is running well. Thank goodness! The only anomaly i saw was that after i downloaded the Java update, once in a while it says an error has happened and it shuts it down. I had one minor problem where all of a sudden i was seeing 'the Matrix' while i was playing WoW' but that only happened once.

    Besides that, all running smooth!

    Cheers! :grinthumb

    Glad to hear it :)

    It shuts down what?

    Java says it has a runtime error and Java shuts down, then asks to send the generic report to Microsoft. I don't know if that has to do with anything else, as the computer seems to be running smooth for now.

    When does it happen? While using browser? Which one?

    This only happens while playing WoW, thus far it has not happened while using a browser (I use Firefox, latest version 3.5.9). I just recently (about 30 seconds ago from this post) downloaded the new Java updates (6.0.190). I will see if this affects it any.

    Cheers! :grinthumb

    Well, in that case, I suggest, you start new topic in appropriate forum.
    I'd like avoid mixing malware issues with some other issues.
