Windows 7: Zonemap Domains

Zonemap Domains

In the register I found even hundreds of strings with this kind of links.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains\beautypornpost.com

Also many with "casino"

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains\casino-onlines.net

Since I didn't trust it, I removed them, but some time later again hundreds showed up.
Found out that Spybot may use this strings?
Are they safe or should I destroy these?

If safe, how to restore that list?

ZoneMap\Domains shows the sites set as 'Trusted Sites' in IE (fyi, I only got paypal and my bank in that list). You very probably got some malware that needs to be found and eradicated.

So it is safe to eliminate all further stuff?
I have read that some of that malicous casino's installed a bug to spybot because they detected their malware..
Spybot than replied with legal charges.

Thanks for you reply

Hello, you can delete all these socalled trusted sites. Some hints: full scan with malwarebytes, then your usual antivirus. Then run full scan with this: aswMBR (click 'yes' to include the latest virus definitions), and these junk removers: Junkware Removal Tool | Information about the tool & AdwCleaner Download

After a clearing of this crap, I ran an update and "immunisation" of Spybot,
I got 926 pornsites back in the reg.!
Zonemap/ domains and Zonemep esc.domains????

Plus 754 Casino's, also in Zonemap/ domains plus Zonemap/ esc. domains!!!
See what your suggestion wil change to this.

Think I found the cause.
In Windows/sys32/drivers/etc/hosts there is a list with thousands of pornsites which probably? belongs to Spybot search and destroy.



It contains something like this

127.0.0.1 localhost
# Start of entries inserted by Spybot - Search & Destroy
127.0.0.1 xxokoriq.cn
127.0.0.1 www.xxxallvideo.com

Spybot S&D

Hi,

I haven't used Spybot S&D for some time. Last time was a couple of years ago. As far as I know the Immunize feature adds some websites to the restricted zone in Internet Explorer. That means that they're blocked.

As far as the hosts file entries go - it's nothing to worry about. It just means that connection to the sites listed will not be possible.

The only problem that you'll encounter is when you want to visit a site that's blocked. Or if you use a very large hosts file that contains thousands of entries like the one that I'm using it will drastically slow down the machine. There's a workaround.

I understand your argument, however there are Zone Domains and Esc. domains and I don't know which one is OK?
Thought that Zone Domains contained the bad guys and Esc. Domains the good one's ?
Thanks for your replies.

Zone Map

See the explanations here:

Internet Explorer security zones registry entries for advanced users

Internet Explorer: Enhanced Security Configuration

I suppose that the test is to reset IE to defaults or reset all security zones to default.

Resetting IE will mean needing to re-enable add ons.

Personally I'd only ever use Sybot S&D to scan on demand and then only on rare occasions. It can be configured so that real time protection and immunization is disabled - then it can be used as an on demand scanner. Currently I don't have it installed.

Question: Domains in 7 and even Vista
Hello, I am at a place where we use a CFS domain but also login to this computer itself. In XP, there was a drop down menu to choose between CFS and this local computer. Is there a way to get this or something similar in Windows Vista and most importantly Windows 7? Thanks in advance.
