IdSafe Vault Compromised by zedo.com adware malware

I wished to read the Idaho State Journal at http:// www. idahostatejournal .com/.  I clicked on a topic and following pop-up occurred.

http:// a.aproductmsg. com/asw/pir/305/2193707/5/o.html?cdm=xads.zedo.com&a=2193707&x=3981&g=172&c1=305025351&c2=305025351&i=0&n=305&s=3582&1=4&2=1&tg=1436893788&vr=5&m=108&w=52&os=3&p=6&h=1621245&f=1646186&b=14400&o=20&y=1724&v=1&t=i&u=1tb1IMcXSwKH2Zd9KDQJ5w**~071415&z=0.5211277940381559&mb=141&dm=.zedo.com&pt=Advertisement&q=&sk=&l=&cd=&adm=c13.zedo.com&ldm=l1.zedo.com&exp=0&cm=&tt=0&wm=Transparent&dnt=1&tsad=0&p1=&p2=&p3=&p4=&p5=&ctg=&prfl=&ct=0&awd=axp.zedo.com&cl4=true&ce=UTF-8&pu=http%3A%2F%2Fwww . idahostatejournal.com%2F&tz=-05_00&rc=0&csv=1&atd=1&dtd=1&dct=2067&dmf=&dvm=&dsr=&djs=&dhs=&patt=2&ptg=1436893788993&zpu=&tpu=0

This is adware/malware that installed/modified my PC and under a timer control waited till later (maybe and hour) before it made a request to the IdSafe Software Password Vault and the  Vault Password Export window appeared requesting a password entry "Password Protected Item".

I believe this is a criminal activity attempting to steal my password file.  I believe zedo.com should be indicted for attempt to steal my property.

Hello 55a5916a6a676

Welcome to the Norton Community Forum

1. Please scan your computer with your Norton product. I hope it's the latest version 22.5.0.124.

2 If the full scan doesn't clean up your computer, please visit one of the free malware removal sites. Please do not attempt to clean this up on your own. Please stay with the site until they declare your computer is clean.

Please see this link for an up to date description of these sites plus the addition of a newly listed site formed by one of our successful malware remover users. The new site is listed first in this link.

Re: IdSafe Vault Compromised by zedo.com adware malware

It looks like you are using Norton Security With Backup. There was a scan being done behind the password request windows. Did you initiate this scan? Were you doing any other scans or system maintenance with this scan?

How long have you had NSBU on your system?

How long have you used the online vault in Identity Safe? It is possible that the automatic backup of your vault is asking for the password to secure the backup it is making.

Still, it would be best to ensure your system is safe, and follow floplot's advice to go to one of the free malware removal sites.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.
