I am still tracking down this on the network I admin, but I can tell you what I know so far, maybe it will help you or someone else:

We have a residential (ie: I don't control what is on them) network here of up to 500 computers at any one time. Currently there is a machine doing an ARP-cache poisoning attack against the network. For some unknown reason, it is inserting the string "1^LIBraBBGvB8i~o+Z~UU L5{B~SLIB5C" into HTTP responses just after the HTTP headers. I presume (NOTE: this is speculation, I have not yet been able to examine the machine in question) that this is due to a trojan/worm or other malware on the system performing the attack, possibly trying to spread itself to other computers on the subnet accessing the web running a vulnerable web browser - although I have not yet identified the effect of that string, so it may be for some other purpose.
I suggest you check other machines on your network for possible compromises.
Use a program like wireshark to examine network traffic to see if there are a continuous stream of ARP responses that _appear_ to be from your router to every other IP address in the subnet, but telling them in incorrect MAC - the computer with that MAC will be the culprit - you may use nmap to find the IP address of the machine. Alternatively if you are using a managed switch, you can look for the MAC that maps to just about every IP address on the subnet.

Dear DarkStarSword thanx for ur reply.

I checked other comps on my network, all had the same prob, fortunately next day there was no such prob in all the comps. don't know why this happened, but am happy now that there is no more signs like "1^LIBraBBGvB8i~o+Z~UU L5{B~SLIB5C" . Smile
