A few days ago I noticed I still had a persistent spy-/malware problem.
I'm unsure how to move on next. As buying a new harddisk is apparently the only way.
I changed harddisks four times now and it apparently installed itself as a rootkit on all of my harddisks and USB-sticks.
No scanner can find it, so I'm unsure what to do now.
I infected two other systems with this, which were first offline, but when I put it online, it also showed the same strange logs that my pc produced.
I'm throwing away the usb-stick as a precaution.
I'll include a logfile that I mined with Microsoft Network Monitor.
It also shows some other data, which is or might be privacy sensitive.
I don't censor them, because it might be related.
In the logfile you'll see a bunch of lines with DNS:QueryId = 0x1AF5, QUERY (Standard query)
They all go to websites that keep track of IP's and the visitor's time/amount.
There is no doubt about it, it's malware, written to visit websites to produce fake views.
I already scanned with every software you could image and I am willing to try each new program.
But if nobody can come up with something that fights new-age spy-/malware, then I would need to do buy a new harddisk.
