At the direction of a contributer on another site, I did post this to the SCU forum, along with logs of all the programs we're asked to run. I'm not sure why this was moved to the Comcast forum and the logs were all deleted.
I've already verified that this is a redirect malware and not fat fingered. As I said, it's supposed to go to Google and it does not.
Is there any way to get this moved back to where I originally posted it and have the logs re-posted? I'm not at my infected machine at the moment.
I spent hours on this last night, so this is a bit disappointing.
Why your thread was moved to the Comcast HSI forum (and getting it moved back to the SCU forum) would be something you would need to discuss privately with the respective forum moderators.
However, being redirected to search.comcast.net is not something that would typically by done by malware since that is a legitimate Comcast search page. Do you perchance have the Comcast toolbar installed on your PC? Or perhaps the Comcast Comstant Guard application (which might have installed a toolbar, or modified your default search engine)?
My guess is that possibly someone in the SCU forum saw evidence of the Comcast toolbar in the log entries that were deleted, and that was why your thread was moved to the Comcast HSI forum. But, without being able to see those logs, that is pure speculation.--
