Trojan.JS.Obfjs.Y (v) on latest version of Opera.

  • I recently thinking of coming back to Malwarebites and to see what it will tell...
    If about Opera cache I haven't it tried it yet - thanks for this idea! BUT I have CCleaner who cleans (?) all the temporary files and cache at the end of every session (I am doing it manually).
    If about logs then I've been advised by Vipre technicians to find some hidden folder on C:\ProgramData\VIPRE\ tough I couldn't find such. Unfortunate!
    Anyways I am so glad by your responsiveness and willingness to help me,guys!
    Blessings!

  • If about logs then I've been advised by Vipre technicians to find some hidden folder on C:\ProgramData\VIPRE\ tough I couldn't find such

    Maybe you have to change Explorer settings to show hidden folders.

    I have CCleaner who cleans (?) all the temporary files and cache at the end of every session (I am doing it manually).

    And does your AV finds anything just after that cleanup?

  • #1 Thanks! I'll check it later on!
    #2 Yes! If I am opening opera after cleaning the story is always the same - AV finds the same Trojan.
    Thank you so much!

  • 2 Yes! If I am opening opera after cleaning the story is always the same - AV finds the same Trojan.

    Could you please try to check if Opera's cache is really empty when the scan is being done?

    If your AV finds the infected file in the cache then it's more likely that the file is coming from a page.

  • If you clean the temp files and cache using CCleaner with Opera off and Vipre produces no error messages, what happens if you then unhook the computer's Internet connection and turn on Opera? That is, do you get a malware alert from Vipre after Opera comes alive (ignoring any protests Opera may make about no connection present)?

    Also, when you start Opera normally with a good Internet connection, what pages (URLs) is its Speed Dial set to load or display?

  • @ leoch:
    When I click on Opera icon on the top left of the page and on the drop down menu chosing Developer-Developer Tools and then go to Cache storage - it is totally clean.
    @ blackbird71:
    When I unhook the internet I simply can't open a browser (I think it is logical). AV doesn't finds nothing in any scenario used - machine itself is clean. I recently installed Malwarebites and did a full scan on C drive and it is clean. Perfectly clean!
    If about Speed Dial than I am using it like a mini bookmark page for quick access of mostly used links on everyday basis. So as I told there were no any problems never ever what so ever,but they started some couple of weeks ago without my interaction with the system settings-I do not touch what is working perfectly and do not push my nose into the holes where my head doesn't fits into,so saying.
    I think I must leave it on self flow - whatever will come! More over because I am not happy to abuse (and to waste) a time of other people unnecessarily. I am very grateful to all of you,guys who have showed a good will to help me in this situation! I really appreciate it from all of my heart!
    If something new will follow I will update this thread.
    Blessings!

  • One of the possibilities for causing an almost-immediate AV warning message (especially if related to JavaScript) is if the browser is set, upon being started up with an active Internet connection, to automatically refresh or retrieve website data from a specific site which happens to be hosting infected code. That could occur upon browser opening via a speed dial entry refresh, a session restore, or a homepage refresh (in those browsers or extensions supporting homepage options). The infected code could be buried directly within the referenced site's code or could be obtained via a coding 'call' to some other infected websites' code (especially 3rd-party ads) from within the referenced site code. Regardless, as soon as the infected code is loaded into the browser cache, the AV will sound an alarm. An alternative, yet related problem, occurs if malware has somehow hijacked a browser to cause it to automatically attempt to access a malicious site each time the browser is opened, in which case the AV will sound an alarm when the malicious site's code is loaded.

    The usual method of cross-checking questionable files by uploading a copy to VirusTotal or Jotti for free analysis by a host of other AV programs only can be used if one can identify the questionable file in the first place. It appears that Vipre doesn't have an easily-accessible way to identify or obtain copies of the file(s) it's blocking.

  • @blackbird71:
    I thank you very much for your (especially yours) contribution in solving the problem I currently meet since you brought an information what makes me think about broadening my horizons in computer related field!
    Even if I naturally have no given gift of cyber thinking it seems like one way or another it comes as a necessity in modern world! Therefore I will carefully read all what you wrote and will try to activate the left part of my brain for getting closer to the machine world and to understand it a little bit more than just pressing certain buttons! 🙂
    I do apology again for possibly wasting your time as well as for your willingness to help someone you even do not know in tough situation!
    My blessings!

    Extensions, or - RSS?

    Some sites may also install their elements into the browser - like Yandex did. Such might get considered malicious by AVs as well. (Those can appear listed as plug-ins.)

  • 🙂 I've been working on this stuff all day long today. Tried all possible options and recommendations what people have been giving me here and at the end when there were no progress of any kind I decided to go the simplest way-the way of dummies! I uninstalled my Vipre and intalled different anti virus. After the full scan was done and machine was restarted I opened Opera and there were no nasty warning about Trojan any more! Maybe by doing so I am fooling myself,but scan results were absolutely positive which means that there were no any conflicts of threats found on machine which brings some peace of mind for now. One way or another I have invaluable experience after I visited this forum and gained more understanding. Thanks a mill! ☕
