Question: Security Warning for Google Typo -...

NAME: Googkle
ALIAS: Googkle.com

Summary


F-Secure staff has found a malicious website that utilizes a spelling error when typing the name of the popular search engine - 'Google.com'. If a user opens a malicious website, his/her computer gets hijacked - a lot of different malware gets automatically downloaded and installed: trojan droppers, trojan downloaders, backdoors, a proxy trojan and a spying trojan. Also a few adware-related files are installed.

The name of the malicious website is 'Googkle.com'. PLEASE DO NOT GO TO THIS WEBSITE! Otherwise your computer will get infected! We have reported the case to the authorities.

Detailed Description


Our investigation revealed that the whole infection starts from the 'googkle.com' website. This website, as well as a few related websites are owned by people with Russian names. Also several malicious files that are downloaded from these websites have Russian texts.

When the 'googkle.com' is opened in a browser, it shows 2 popup windows that are linked to the following websites:


www ntsearch.com
toolbarpartner.com

The 'ntsearch.com' website downloads and runs the 'pop.chm' file and the 'toolbarpartner.com' website downloads and runs the 'ddfs.chm' file. Both files are downloaded using exploits and they contain exploits themselves to run embedded executable files. One of the webpages of the 'toolbarpartner.com' website downloads a file named 'pic10.jpg' using an exploit. This JPG file is actually an executable that replaces Windows Media Player application.

In addition these websites launch a stream of webpages with different exploits than end up in downloading and running 2 files from the 'daosearch.com' website:


web.exe
classload.jar

See the description of these files below.

As far as the JAR archive is concerned. the actual malware functionality is in Installer.class, which downloads file from the same location as the JAR file is being loaded.

First the applet looks for filename to download from Applet parameter ModulePath (is specified in the HTML tag). If the parameter is not specified the applet defaults to msxmidi.dat.

After the file is downloaded the applet gets the location of Windows directory with GetWindowsDirectory() and saves the downloaded executable as 'web.exe' and executes it.

As said above, two CHM files get downloaded and activated on a computer. The 'pop.chm' file drops the 'sp.exe' file and runs it. The dropped 'sp.exe' file is detected as 'Trojan.Win32.Spooner.f'.

The 'ddfs.chm' file drops the 'frame.exe' file and runs it. The 'frame.exe' file is a trojan downloader that is detected as 'Trojan-Downloader.Win32.Small.apf'. It has the functionality to automatically reply to security questions asked by Windows to ensure that its process has connection to Internet. This downloader downloads and runs the following files from the 'toolbarpartner.com' website:


xz.exe
ggl.exe

The 'xz.exe' file is a trojan dropper that is detected as 'Trojan-Dropper.Win32.Small.vv'. It drops a DLL named 'winloadhh.dll', detected as 'Trojan-Downloader.Win32.Small.anu' to the root folder of C: drive. This DLL is another downloader that connects to 2 different websites to get the list of files to download:


toolbarpartner.com
sturfajtn.com

Last time we checked these sites, they contained the following list of files to download:

The 'sturfajtn.com' website:


next3.exe
next1.exe
next2.exe

The 'toolbarpartner.com' website:


ggl.exe
svchosts.exe
proxyrnd.exe
ldr.exe
toolbar.exe
inst.exe
winran.exe

These files are currently detected as follows:


next1.exe: Trojan-Spy.Win32.Banker.jk
next2.exe: Trojan-Proxy.Win32.Small.bh
next3.exe: Backdoor.Win32.Zins.c
ggl.exe: Trojan-Dropper.Win32.Small.vn
inst.exe: Trojan-Dropper.Win32.Small.wp
ldr.exe: Trojan-Downloader.Win32.Agent.lv
proxyrnd.exe: Backdoor.Win32.Jeemp.c

So as you see, a nice malware package get installed on an affected computer: 2 backdoors, 2 trojan droppers, a proxy trojan, a spying trojan (that steals bank-related information) and a trojan downloader.

The 'winran.exe' file that is downloaded from 'pillz.info' website is a trojan dropper. It copies itself to Windows System folder with a random name and drops a DLL also with a random name to the same folder. The DLL modifies HOSTS file to block connection to the following websites:


downloads1.kaspersky-labs.com
downloads2.kaspersky-labs.com
downloads3.kaspersky-labs.com
downloads4.kaspersky-labs.com
download.mcafee.com
liveupdate.symantecliveupdate.com
liveupdate.symantec.com
update.symantec.com

The 'svchosts.exe' file is a trojan dropper. It drops a DLL named 'svchosts.dll' into Windows System folder. This DLL places a fake virus alert on a desktop. The alert looks like that (original spelling preserved):


VIRUS ALERT!
YOUR PC IS INFECTED!


IT HAS BEEN DETECTED THAT YOUR PC HAS AT LEAST 3 DANGEROUS VIRUSES!
TO KNOW FOR SURE YOU URGENTLY NEED TO RUN AN ANTIVIRUS TEST ON YOUR PC!


The consequences of spyware and virus presence on your pc might belike:
loosing all the data, data might be stolen, your secrets might beexposed.


PROTECT YOUR PC!
REMOVE ALL VIRUSES NOW!

This fake alert is created by placing the HTML file on a desktop, so a user could click on the alert and go to a pre-defined website. The link from this fake alert points to the following website:


topantivirus.biz

This website offers links to different websites that offer anti-virus and spyware cleaners for download. The motto of this site is 'Top Antivirus - We help people.'. Unfortunately the way people are directed to that website is somewhat deceptional.

The 'toolbar.exe' is an adware installer, that installs an adware toolbar known as 'Perez'.

The 'pic10.jpg' file is a trojan dropper similar to 'frame.exe'. It also drops a DLL named 'winloadhh.dll' to the root of C: drive. This DLL has the same functionality as the DLL, detected as 'Trojan-Downloader.Win32.Small.anu' mentioned above.

The 'web.exe' file is also a trojan downloader that is identical to the 'pic10.jpg' file described above.

Preferred Solution: Security Warning for Google Typo -...

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I was trying out a freeware security suite and i encountered this typo that might make you laugh or not
 

Answer:security suite typo

Looks like an application I would have been involved with judging by the typo! dependant on where the app was developed it depends on the native language and who translated it possibily as I noticed many strange word in manuals translated to engwish over the years.

BTW what is the app you trying "swift"???

for your information:

Spyware authors and phishing fraudsters yanked an old scam out of the playbook Wednesday by directing malicious code at Internet users who may be prone to typing or spelling deficiencies, according to security researchers.

Finnish security firm F-Secure said they discovered an attack aimed at Web surfers attempting to land on Google's (Quote, Chart) homepage, but who may have mistyped the Web address.

Internet users who punch in "Googkle.com" are treated to a host malicious code, as the computer gets slammed with a heap of the unwanted software that is automatically downloaded and installed. The malware includes: Trojan droppers, Trojan downloaders, backdoors, a proxy Trojan and a spying Trojan. A few adware-related files are also installed, the firm said.

Hi all. Great forum. I've been lurking and reading so far and now I need to ask for some help. It sounds like some people here have figured it out which is great news, so I would really appreciate a hand.

Dummy me, surfing and searching I clicked on a bad bad link. And I allowed some trojan on my computer. Yes, my mom always told me to watch where I was sticking my fingers, but after a few beers I quickly forgot that rule.

Now I'm getting this crappy icon in my system tray and stupid pop-ups all over the place. I've got SpySweeper installed, which said it had gotten rid of the problem, but it still is coming up. Norton also had a problem fixing it. Basically, the problem was that it won't fix it.

So I d/l'd HiJackThis and did the system scan and save log file. Here is what I have:

I mistyped a url earlier (I believe i typed 'radiosahck' instead of radioshack) and was redirected to a strange website (something about internet surveys I believe) I closed it right away and did a quick scan with malwarebytes to make sure nothing was wrong, and it came up empty. I'm probably being a bit paranoid here, but is this anything to really worry about?

Answer:Odd URL typo redirect...

Redirects can be something to worry about, as you have no idea what content is being hosted on the re-direct. Most popular anti virus programs, have real-time scanning, where it's constantly scanning your computer, and as soon as you're redirected to a bad website, it will block any content that's harmful to your computer. I use Eset and it does this.

Question: Microsoft Typo

Microsoft made a typo in their WinSAT application, How can we let them know about it?

Answer:Microsoft Typo

Hi Steven,

You can try contacting them by following the link below. Whether or not you will get a response I cannot say. I have managed to locate the error in the 'WinSAT.exe' file (notice the space between the letters), and you can edit it to replace the erroneous 'o' with an 'i', however by doing so you will probably cause it to fail an SFC scan. In my opinion, it is such a minor error that it is probably best left ignored.

So I was browsing around in Windows Defender (Windows Settings > Update & Security > Windows Defender > Open Windows Defender Security Center > Virus & threat protection > Virus & threat protection settings, then scroll down to Controlled folder access.)

The sentence "Protect your files and folders from unauthorized changed by unfriendly applications" has a typo in it.
(Refer to the attached picture)

Either:
? The word "changed" has a typo in it and should be the word "changes" (with an 's' instead of a 'd'), or
? There is at least one missing word in between the words "unauthorized" & "changed"
Somebody should inform Microsoft about this typo.

But Also: I noticed that this is a new option, since the last time I was browsing around in there. What does this option exactly do? It was originally off, but I turned it On. Yet I must say that I have seen a few messages pop up in the right corner of the screen, stating that Windows Defender blocked some programs from making changes. One of them showed explorer.exe from modifying the Favorites folder without me doing anything with Favorites. Exactly what does this option do? Is it kind of like some sort of strict "Firewall"? Because if so, then I like that.

Blocks access to your files and documents by unknown apps (malware/ransomware). It's off by default because not all 'good' apps are in it's 'trusted' list. It takes a bit of fiddling to get all your apps to work after you turn it on.

Hello everyone,

I am experiencing the red typo lines when there are no typos. This happens on occasion when I'm typing emails and posting or responding to forums. It seems to occur when there is an actually typo and I correct the error. After that the entire post/email from that point on will have the red typo lines.

For example it is happening now... I'll try to post a pic for a better understanding.

Has anyone experience this as well and most importantly does anyone know of a solutions to this?

My unit is new and I have yet to DL Office 365 so I don't have Word. Not sure if that will matter.

Any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks

Hi can someone please help clear up my concerns because I accidentally interned the wrong DNS address on my new router.
After entering this typo I almost immediately that my connection was unstable especially on Linux and yesterday evening when I logged back into my router the DNS settings were set to there defaults. But I was able to surf the web kinda in Windows though it timed out often and certain webpages wouldn't even open, and now when ever I enter the correct DNS settings it disconnects from the internet.  
 
Here's what I entered
 
222.67.222.222
220.67.220.220
 
Instead of
 
208.67.222.222
208.67.220.220
 
I'm really feeling uneasy and stressed about this, any advice?
 
 
 
Why does stuff like this happen whenever your in poor health or any other of life's trials and complications?

Answer:Open DNS typo on router

Two things you might check:
 
1. In Windows, do your Network Properties have a DNS Server entry(s) that point(s) to your router (probably 192.168.1.1 or close) or do they point to the published OpenDNS IP addresses? Easy check: From an Elevated Command Prompt: ipconfig /all
 
2. After you corrected the DNS router entries, did you have the router do a cold reboot?
 
I believe you shouldn't overly stress yourself over this if you didn't make any financial transactions. But new passwords could be needed.

Question: Security Warning

During my usual microsoft updates I got the new Internet Explorer 8 and I was ok with that at first. however lately I have been getting an irritating secutity warning that shows up every time I try and open an e mail.
It asks: "Do you want to view only the webpage content that was delivered securely ? "
" This webpage contains content that will not be delivered using a secure HTTPS connection, which could
compromise the security of the entire webpage. "
Is there any way to clear this warning so that it dosent pop up every time I go to open an e-mail ? I have tried to change various settings, to no avail. And it shows up on both my XP and Vista operating systems. It seems to be tied in with the smartscreen filter some how. I just can't seem to be able to remove it
Any thoughts would be helpful.

Answer:Security Warning

It is not related to the smart screen filter.

I've receivec it before and I don't have such enabled.

I've recently upgraded to Windows 10 and have been using Microsoft Edge with no issues.

Recently the browser has turned blue and I have a message pop up stating, "This site says... WAIT! Your personal photos, Facebook and other personal information and passwords can be at risk. This require immediate action. Contact Tech Support Immediately. 020-3514-0756).

If I click OK then the message goes but comes straight back. I can't even close Microsoft Edge without switching off my laptop.

As a result of this I now use a different browser but would like to rectify this on Microsoft Edge.

Has anybody else experienced this and what can I do to rectify it?

Security Warning

Do you want to view only the webpage content that was delivered securely?
This webpage contains content that will not be delivered using a secure
HTTPS connection which could compromise the security on the entire webpage.

Then I'm suppose to check "yes" or "no" ... Ever since this warning box has poped up I have had nothing but problems getting to webpages I look at every single day ... I am running SUPER antiSpyware and Advast Antivirus ... I also run CCleaner once a day ...

I recently installed a trial version of Kaspersky Internet Security 2012. When I tried to use my IE 8 browser, I would get a pop-up security warning that said, ?Do you want to view only the webpage content that was delivered securely?? I already check the known fix for this pop up by going to IE Tools-> Internet Options-> Security, and in the Miscellaneous section changing the display mixed content to Enable. That value was already set to enable, and I was still having the problem.

Regretfully I had to uninstall the Kaspersky program, which cured the problem. I am not experiencing this problem with my Firefox which works fine.

I really wanted to purchase the Kaspersky program after the trial runs out, but now I don?t think I can use it because of this problem,

Can you help?

Answer:Security Warning from IE 8

You have to set Kaspersky protection similarly to what you did in IE or use their defaults. If you're set on buying the program, talk to their tech dept. first before risking $$$. Personally, I would go with a free AV like Avast and in addition to the firewall at your router, a free firewall in the computer.

Well, every warning about unsigned drivers I ever remember seeing went more along the lines of "Windows can't verify the publisher ......." etc. So offhand I'd agree with you about it being a malware trick. Have you ran your malware and A/V scans yet?

The exact words in the box are theseSecurity Warning Do you want to view only the webpage content that was delivered securely? This webpage contains content that will not be delivered using a secure HTTPS connection which could compromise the security on the entire webpage.Then I'm suppose to check "yes" or "no" ... Ever since this warning box has poped up I have had nothing but problems getting to webpages I look at every single day ... I am running SUPER antiSpyware and Advast Antivirus ...

About a month ago, I started having these IE security warnings popping up everytime I use IE. Some warnings went away when I clicked Don't Allow, but one particular warning came up with the Program named as Adobe flash player and the publisher being Adobe Systems Inc. This warning would come up at 3 times when I went on IE. Even when I clicked Allow or don't allow, the warning would come back up. So I thought the issue a Flash related problem and posted for help on Tech Support Guy. However, the thread I posted there seemed to have grown stagnant. I also realized that the problems aren't Flash-related, but either an IE issue or malware, because warnings come up for things like Java, and even just Microsoft Windows. I first thought that something got messed in my Internet Options, but I don't remember ever tampering with it. So I grew so tired and just checked "Do not show me the warning for this program again". I know the problem still exists though, because very rarely warnings still pop up. Please help me get rid of this annoying problem.

Answer:IE Security Warning

Hi

What version of IE are you running?

You can download the newest version of IE from here
You can download the newest version of Flash here
You can download the newest version of Java here. (You should uninstall older versions of Java before loading new versions. You can do this by going to Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs)

Some web sites require minimum versions to display correctly. So if you do not have the minimum version it will request that you update the version you have.

What other warning are popping up?
Let us know if the popups are still displayed once you have run the above 3 programs. Also let us know the exact error/message that is displayed and the web site if possible.

I am getting this message: Windows has blocked this software because it cannot verify publisher. I have 2 computers set exactly the same. I can open page on one computer and not the other.

I've gone into Tools, IE, etc. etc, unchecking anything to do with ActiveX, but nothing is working.

I am trying to open a virtual tour of a hotel. I've disabled pop ups. I can't download ActiveX. Everytime the ActiveX bar comes up, the Windows blocked software message comes appears.

I checked the subject in the other forums but cannot find the answer.
When I pin a program (imaging program, dictionary etc) to the taskbar it opens normally. When I create a shortcut in my links toolbar to the same program I receive the Security Warning...Do you want to open this file? How to disable this warning?

The interesting thing is that when I drag the icon from the links toolbar (which gives me the warning after I click on it) to the taskbar and click on the same icon in the taskbar, it opens normally.

Thank you

Answer:Security warning Help!

It's probably because Windows considers all executables (exe files) in the Links as files from Internet, So it gives them label as potential dangerous (As they are from internet), so it warns you before opening.

I have experimented putting Windows native paint there and it gives the same warning (so it considers all programs in links as from Internet and potential danger)

Solution:
1. Create New folder anywhere in your disk, (put your Favourite programms and links there)
2. Go to toolbars and click new toolbar. And choose the folder you created.

There should be no more warnings.
Hope it works for you

Hi guys, I have a laptop running Win XP and for a few weeks now, whenever I boot up, the following warning from Windows Security Centre appears with the icons on the bottom-right of my desktop:"No firewall is turned on. Antivirus software might not be installed."I use the free Comodo firewall, which is turned on, fully updated and I've been using it for well over a year on this laptop. I also use the free Avast anti-virus, which is also fully updated, running in real time and a full scan shows no virus present. I have been using this prog for over a year as well. I also run regular full scans with both Superantispyware and Malwarebytes, both of which show no malware present on my HD. When I first installed the Comodo firewall, the Win Security Centre detected it, I did not get any warnings.and it's only in the last few weeks that I've been getting them, without me changing anything.Also, when I run Task Manager, it shows that wscntfy.exe is running, which I believe is the .exe for Win Security Centre. This is no biggie really (at least, I hope not) but is just becoming slightly annoying, so if anyone has any idea what the cause is, I'd be grateful. Thanks.

Answer:Why do I keep getting Win XP security warning?

I noticed when doing sp updates for XP that they would reset the security center to default, which is to give the warnings. In addition Malwarebytes scans would also detect that the warnings were disabled and if I let it make the suggested fixes it would turn them back on. It's possible a virus or malware scan by your software may have done the same thing.DAVEINCAPS - Made with REAL high fructose corn syrup.

That is most definitely a scam, whatever you do don't call that number, don't allow that page open pop-ups!

You said that page will open every time you open Edge. That might be because the site has added it to the list of pages that opens whenever Edge is launched. I've see this happen when user has accidentally visited a not too safe site. Check that list first, if the page is there remove it by clicking the X after the site address. See screenshot:

Question: Security Warning

Just verified with my bank that the popup window I got after entering my username/password was not their doing. As soon as I submitted my Username/Password to my online banking site, a pop-up window had a message that "the computer you're using is not recognized...." and there is an option on another one of my banking sites to check a box, if you intend to log in with this particular computer in the future. What popped up was prompting me for Credit Card #, CVC #, etc that was linked to the account, so it could verify me. This was the first time in a long time that I had not used this PC to log in to do my banking, so it wouldn't be surprising if the computer I was using was not recognized. Well fortunately I did not enter anything, and called the bank this morning.

The concerning thing is that what ever is on my PC is not getting picked up by MalwareBytes or Super AntiSpyware - so I'm not sure what to do. Does anyone have any idea of what other program to run to get to the bottom of whatever is running? Also, I noticed that Super AntiSpyware would not run - so I reinstalled it, did the updates and ran a full scan. Zero threats were found, but then I attempted to run Super AntiSpyware again, and it would not run - no error, nadah. So something is disregarding the user prompt to run the Super AntiSpyware software.

I do not believe there is a way to shut this off but if there is it is a Firefox settings. In address bar you type about:config. I would research what function is performed under the setting network.websocket.allowInsecureFromHttps

You are in a secure page from Virgin and you are asking for a search on Web. The browser detects the data will be sent from Virgin in clear text and warns. You might try searching from the very top search bar in Firefox. That or set Google as your home page. If you search from Firefox bar you can set the default search engine in "Options" to be your engine of choice.

Personally I would not defeat this warning. Hope this helps a little.

Question: Security Warning!

When I restart my computer and my desktop is loading I get an error that says :

The security information is invalid or has been modified. This program will be terminated.

Once I hit ok (my only option) I don't see anything shut down. There is no program name so I have no clue to what it is referring too. The only problem I am having is with Incredimail but not too sure if the two are related. I will post about my incredimail problem in the correct forum but figured I should mention it just in case.

Hopeing someone has seen that error and can help!

Thanks
 

Answer:Security Warning!

I've not seen this error, but you might try this:
When the error message appears, open tast manager and switch to processes tab. Look for the process that disappears from the list when you hit OK in the warning window. This might get you an idea of the application that generates the message.

Answer:IE7 Security Warning

When the warning box comes up there is usually a little box that says something to the effect that don't show this no more. Put a tick mark in it and click yes I believe and it should not open any more.

I remember in Win NT you could add text to a registry setting so that when anyone logged on a text box appeared with a warning or whatever text you had put in the registry. Does anyone know if this can be done in XP Pro and if so how do you do it?Thanks in advance.

Question: Security Warning

I keep getting the security warning reading "Do you want to view only the content that was delivered securely" message for every page that I go to when this used to never happen. Is there a way to stop this warning from popping up?

Answer:Security Warning

Does this happen in your web browser when you are loading a page, or from within Windows? A screenshot perhaps?

Question: Security Warning

Hey,

I have a coldfusion application that contains links to some Microsoft Access files. I would like to have Microsoft Access launch when the user clicks on the links. I have the correct syntax, but the problem is that Internet Explorer is displaying the Security Warning stating "The publisher could not be verified. Are you sure you want to run this software". The user attempts to click on the "Run" button, but Access does not launce Access - basically nothing happens - Being in a very secure environment, I would like to disable this warning message altogether for all files. Does anyone have an answer to how this can be accomplished?

Thanks,

Craig
 

Answer:Security Warning

Sounds like an IE advanced tick box choice ???





This message is shown when you download an application from the Internet and the publisher of the software has not digitally signed the application. This does not necessarily mean the file is a fake or virus but files which come from large companies such as Microsoft should be signed so you can be certain of their origin.Click to expand...
