Firefox Crashes [@ shlwapi
.dll@0x2c4d8 ] and other addresses
currently ranked #54 for firefox 3.6.2 but climbing. stacks and comments look like http://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/69f1c4b7-893b-464a-aa10-15cb22100330 well nothing happened..then all of a sudden my computer said i had viruses then mozzila crashed All I have to do is attempt to open something on the same link or go to another site and CRASH! believe I got the Google Redirect Virus...despite repeated attempts to purge it using Spybot Search & Destory, it has persisted, and has made using the internet with Firefox very difficult.

But it sounds like attacks have been seen where shlwapi.dll is part of malware packages and replacement DLL's load from non-standard locations.
up about 30% from earlier in march, and sharp uptick starting after march 14.

If we can figure out a defense for this, or a recommended virus remover, a support doc's might be the only thing we can do. Not sure any of our blocking tools would work against this if it is in fact a imposter .dll getting loaded from a non-standard location.

preventing LSPs or locking out non signed libraries should work. i need to figure out what ms's status was wrt signing some libraries....
still 100% winXP

Re: user-doc-needed So the cause of this is some sort of virus, and we don't have a link for a specific remedy, correct?
some possible hits here on: where to find the .dll, -> %System%\acespy\Shlwapi.dll what packages it comes with (Sypyare.AceSpy) , and an indication that symantec might provide protection for some varitions of the problem. http://greatis.com/appdata/d/SysDir/a/acespy_shlwapi.dll.htm http://www.symantec.com/security_response/writeup.jsp?docid=2004-062111-2932-99 it also looks a .dll by that name comes with windows so malware might be replacing the copy that normally loads from C:\WINDOWS\system32\shlwapi.dll http://www.filename.info/f/shlwapi.dll.html
chofmann: it's fairly unlikely that it's that creature. based on its age. it's much more likely that something from: 2 @0x1b3ca4 is calling into the standards windows system library by this name.
in the past week merely one crash each of shlwapi.dll@0x145bd bp-a839e416-187e-4e62-b4b8-a5b022130615 shlwapi.dll@0xc2a4 bp-589f5982-df36-4eb1-9bd7-438682130616
Severity: normal → critical
I'm marking this bug as WORKSFORME as bug crashlog signature didn't appear from a long time (over half year).
