Solved ServImg.com Apparently Infected with Ransomware

Post by Tim Sullivan on December 4th 2015, 5:46 am

Technical Details


Forum version : #phpBB3
Position : Administrator
Concerned browser(s) : Internet Explorer
Who the problem concerns : All members
When the problem appeared : First Noticed 3 December 2015
Forum link : ( link is hidden, you must reply to see )

Description of problem

When attempting to access ServImg.com directly (not through forumotion image hosting routines), IE is redirected to a ransomware page. As is typical for such things, one cannot exit the infected page without performing a hard shutdown (through Task Manager) of the browser.

Anyone else notice this or experience this problem?

To clarify, the problem occurs only when accessing ServImg.com through the homepage address: https://servimg.com

Forum image uploading/display functionality is not affected.

It loaded fine for me.

Is this happening to all your members who use IE?

Hello,
Your forum and servimg loading fine I tested them now, have you tried other web browsers? Maybe you have infected by malware or hijacker as these redirections symptoms looks like. Use an anti-malware software to scan your computer.

I think Black-Shadow is true. You probably have a malware on your computer. You can read this tutorial about How to delete virus and malware ?

Thanks for your responses. As of 4 December 2015 (0658 local), the page no longer displays the ransomware message. This morning's scan of my machine turned up no problems. Don't know what the problem was, but it is apparently resolved. Thanks again.
