Hi, all. I had malware break through a sandboxed browser the other day. But what happened was that I got a couple of emails from a relative's email address in two email accounts of mine. And usually, my relatives send me email that consists of jokes and information, etc., and vice versa. Well, these two emails that I received from my one relative had links in them, which I thought were jokes or a funny pictures or whatever, therefore, I clicked on each link. Now for the first link, IE wouldn't open it's browser for that link. Plus, I first tried clicking on that link at the library and the library's computer wouldn't allow that page to be opened either. Oh, and BTW, for those who like to collect and test malware, here is the URL for the first link with the literal dot being replaced by "(dot)"...if I'm allowed to do that here: -http://rupa.vndv(dot)com/google.php- Now for the second link, when I clicked on it at home and at the library, it changed or was redirected to a Viagra/Cialis advertisment site. Now this is the one that I believe had the malware in it, although it could have been both links: -http://ontheflygsm(dot)com/google.php- But anyway, even after I deleted the Sandboxie session, my computer started to act funny...and it got to the point where I couldn't launch my anti-malware programs or my IE browser....sandboxed or unsandboxed. However, I did go into Safemode and tried scanning with the various anti-malware programs that I had, but to no avail. Plus, those programs had not been updated. But anyway, the only other course that I knew to do was to reformat my hard drive and now everything is back to normal. But if anyone would like to test those URLs(and replace the "(dot)" with a literal dot), feel free to do so and I would appreciate it if you came back and posted in this thread what you found from those URLs. Thanks. P.S. And BTW, I think that someone hacked my relative's email account and is sending out malware to their contacts, but I haven't talked to this relative yet to ask them about this.
