Upon boot-up to desktop, a dial-up dialoge box prompting me to hit "yes"
or "no" would appear - I would hit "no" before it would try to dial up
and connect to this p.free-proxy.net malserver - this using an NT
4.0/sp6a system - Pentium 2 MMX 266 MHz, 56K dial-up - finally had to
ditch this aging system becuz of this trojan horse. I found this thread
via google.

There are TWO other malservers - a third server name in gibberish, but
this one too(!):

HOME.PLAYED.CO.UK
a second prompt, appearing after the first prompt for the p.free-proxy
.net server mentioned above.

Once connected, the PC would slow to molassas - processes showing 98%
taken up by the malware behind the connection to one of more of the
aforementioned servers, and lots of data would come in and out - this
began early 2005.

Google shows no hits for the home.played.co.uk malserver above. Wierd.

Thanks for the help Dave -

Steve M.

I have a system that won't browse properly,, pings to the DNS servers
are successful only half the time, sites time out, system shuts down
due to RPC service termination (but have run tools which show no Sasser
or Blaster worms).

I have run full scans with current updates of Spybot S&D, AdAware and
Microsoft Antispyware. All 3 came out completely clean.

I too have a message on bootup saying a prog has asked for
home.played.co.uk.

I am currently trying to troubleshoot it.

Any ideas?
