HELP! Infected With Sdbot Virus Variant CWin32/Rbot,TROJ_...

Unread postby computer_break_down2 » August 19th, 2006, 12:56 am

My computer has been slow, sometimes freezes, and sometimes restarts without notice. I sent a Microsoft report. It told me I have Sdbot Virus Variant CWin32/Rbot,TROJ_ROOTKIT.H,Troj/NtRootK-F

It told me to scan with the Microsoft Worm/ Trojan/ Virus tool thing. So I did. It took out some stuff that seemed to be related. But I'm still having problems. And when I rerun the Microsoft scan it will either find nothing or find those files again. So I think the virus is still in there pretty deep recreating these files and that the Microsoft scan just isn't getting it.

I've scan regularly with Ad-Aware SE and Spy Bot Search And Destroy. They find things from time to time. I also have used suggested online virust scans but they never find anything.

I have a home Windows XP computer. It is a dell (and yes, I'm going through hell...) I have not installed anything lately to make it act funny. If you need to know anything else let me know. I will post my hijack log below and I'll let you know if I think of anything else that might be helpful.

Hi again computer_break_down2,

As you may already know, your infected with the W32/SDBOT Worm, which is a Remote Access Trojan (RAT).

Its very possible that anything could have been installed on your computer by the remote attacker, including opening other backdoors and installing other rootkits. While we can attempt to clean what we see in your logs, we can't guarantee that your computer will be completely in the clear since we have no way of knowing that has been done to the computer. Your computer could be completely compromised at this moment. It may be sensible to backup your information, reformat, and reinstall.

I also recommend that you disconnect this machine from the internet NOW!

1. Disconnect infected computer from the internet and from any networked computers until the computer can be cleaned.

2. Call all of your banks, credit card companies, financial institutions and inform them that you may be a victim of identity theft and to put a watch on your accounts or change all your account numbers.

3. From a clean computer, change *all* your online passwords -- for email, for banks, financial accounts, PayPal, eBay, online companies, any online forums or groups you belong to.

Do NOT change passwords or do any transactions while using the infected computer because the attacker will get the new passwords and transaction information.

If you do wish to try to clean your computer, please follow these instructions:

I don't see any indication of a Firewall in your HijackThis log. This may be because:

(1.) You are using Windows Firewall or a hardware Firewall.
(2.) You are using a Firewall of an unknown vendor.
(3.) You are using a Firewall, but it is disabled for unknown reasons
(4.) You don't use any firewall at all.

In the case you don't have a Firewall, please download one from below - They are Free!

Zone Alarm << I recommend this
Sunbelt Kerio PF
Outpost Firewall

Also, I don't see any Anti-Virus installed. Please choose one from the list below - They are Free!

AVG Free Edition << I recommend this
AntiVir
avast! 4 Home Edition

=====

We need to download some tools to use later.

1) Download ATF (Atribune Temp File) Cleaner© by Atribune to your desktop. Don't do anything with it yet!
