mezziacodec.chl problem

Unread postby kerol » November 10th, 2006, 2:57 pm

Hi, i have spybot S&D, ad-aware se, spywareblaster, spywareguard and bidefender v10 installed.
i ran scans and detected that trojan name AstaKiller in spybot and bitdefender.

scan results from spybot:

Microsoft.WindowsSecurityCenter.FirewallDisableNotify: Settings (Registry change, nothing done)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Security Center\FirewallDisableNotify!=dword:0

AstaKiller: Root class (Registry key, nothing done)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes\MezziaCodec.Chl

AstaKiller: Class ID (Registry key, nothing done)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes\CLSID\{6BF52A52-394A-11D3-B153-00C04F79FAA6}


--- Spybot - Search & Destroy version: 1.4 (build: 20050523) ---

scan results from bitdefender:

<System>=>HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MEZZIACODEC.CHL Detected: Trojan.Nebuler-G
<System>=>HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MEZZIACODEC.CHL Deleted
<System> Update failed

so both detected mezziacodec.chl. when i fix using spybot, mce showed an error 'specified cast is not valid' when i try to play music or video. after recover the registry, mce is good. (i'm using windows xp media center edition)

bitdefender failed to repair. i am new here.

could someone guide me.

thanks a lot.

Hi kerol and welcome to Malware Removal Forums :)

Sorry for the delay. You posted twice to your topic so helpers searching for 0 reply topics missed your topic...

What is the current state of the SpyBot S&D findings ?
Have you restored those ?

I'm thinking that this might be a false positive from Spybot S&D :
Code: Select all
AstaKiller: Class ID (Registry key, nothing done)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes\CLSID\{6BF52A52-394A-11D3-B153-00C04F79FAA6}


You seem to have disabled some of the startups. I need to see what is disabled in case there is some malware lurking there...

Go to Start >Run and type "Notepad" without the quotes
Copy the text from the quotebox to Notepad.
Go to the menu at the top of the Notepad file and Save as:
  • Name the file peek.bat
  • Save as Type: All files
  • Select the desktop icon on the left to save it on the desktop.

Double click on peek.bat and let it run.
When finished it will open a file in Notepad.
That file will be named startup.txt
Please post the contents of startup.txt into your next reply here.

if not exist Files MkDir Files

regedit /e peek1.txt "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSConfig\startupreg"
regedit /e peek2.txt "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSConfig\startupfolder"
type peek1.txt >> startup.txt
type peek2.txt >> startup.txt
del peek*.txt
start notepad startup.txt

Copy files\*.txt = startup.txt
rmdir /s /q files
Start Notepad startup.txt


Also post a fresh HijackThis log.

Just glad you want to help me. Thanks a lot

Hi again :)

The following is a verified false positive from Spybot S&D (It shouldn't have been removed)
Code: Select all
AstaKiller: Class ID (Registry key, nothing done)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes\CLSID\{6BF52A52-394A-11D3-B153-00C04F79FAA6}


So if you have the entry in quarantine at the moment, restore it. Then update the latest definitions to Spybot S&D, the entry shouldn't be flagged again.

Your HijackThis log looks good but there is this one thing that I want to point out...

The unregistered version of FlashGet serves up Ads in Internet Explorer that are downloaded from Cydoor servers. I would suggest removing it if it is this version. The registered version supposedly does not... so it should be ok. You can find safer alternatives. Please uninstall FlashGet in the Control Panel /Add Remove programs.

Right click the running icon of Spywareguard in the system tray to open the program. Then go to Menu, File, and choose Exit. It will automatically restart at next boot. (otherwise it may interfere with our cleaning process)

These are the items to fix in HijackThis.

O2 - BHO: IeCatch5 Class - {2F364306-AA45-47B5-9F9D-39A8B94E7EF7} - C:\PROGRA~1\FlashGet\jccatch.dll
O3 - Toolbar: FlashGet Bar - {E0E899AB-F487-11D5-8D29-0050BA6940E3} - C:\PROGRA~1\FlashGet\fgiebar.dll
O8 - Extra context menu item: Download All by FlashGet - C:\Program Files\FlashGet\jc_all.htm
O8 - Extra context menu item: Download using FlashGet - C:\Program Files\FlashGet\jc_link.htm


This is the folder to remove - C:\Program Files\FlashGet

==========

Please do an online scan with Kaspersky WebScanner

Click on Kaspersky Online Scanner

You will be promted to install an ActiveX component from Kaspersky, Click Yes.
  • The program will launch and then begin downloading the latest definition files:
  • Once the files have been downloaded click on NEXT
  • Now click on Scan Settings
  • In the scan settings make that the following are selected:
    • Scan using the following Anti-Virus database:
      Extended (if available otherwise Standard)
    • Scan Options:
      Scan Archives
      Scan Mail Bases

  • Click OK
  • Now under select a target to scan:
      Select My Computer
  • This will program will start and scan your system.
  • The scan will take a while so be patient and let it run.
  • Once the scan is complete it will display if your system has been infected.
    • Now click on the Save as Text button:
  • Save the file to your desktop.
  • Copy and paste that information in your next post.


Let me also know how the computer is running :D

kapersky scan report

Unread postby kerol » November 23rd, 2006, 11:16 am

Hi again.

I already remove the flashget and the flashget folder.
When you said fix items in HijackThis, do you mean fix the selected items using the HijackThis, or simply remove the flashget folder.

And this is the Kapersky scan report.

Hi again, looks good now :)

Sorry for the inconvenience. So you have now removed Flashget and it's folder. There might be some leftovers so run HijackThis, click Do a system scan only, and check the box next to each of these entries if still present. You have to disable SpywareGuard from it's icon before fixing any items. Close all other windows and press Fix checked. If something isn't there, please continue with the next entry in the list.

O2 - BHO: IeCatch5 Class - {2F364306-AA45-47B5-9F9D-39A8B94E7EF7} - C:\PROGRA~1\FlashGet\jccatch.dll
O3 - Toolbar: FlashGet Bar - {E0E899AB-F487-11D5-8D29-0050BA6940E3} - C:\PROGRA~1\FlashGet\fgiebar.dll
O8 - Extra context menu item: Download All by FlashGet - C:\Program Files\FlashGet\jc_all.htm
O8 - Extra context menu item: Download using FlashGet - C:\Program Files\FlashGet\jc_link.htm


Seems to me that your BitDefender doesn't include a firewall. You don't seem to a firewall running, you must install one firewall.
NOTE: If you're using Windows XP firewall, I recommend that you install a better firewall. Windows firewall doesn't really provide enough protection.
Disable Windows firewall after installing a new firewall.


These are good (free) firewalls:Now that you seem to be clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:
  • Clear your system restore
    This will clear the system restore folders from possible malware that was left behind during the cleaning process.
  • Use ATF Cleaner
    Download and install ATF Cleaner. Clean your temporary files & folders with it regularly.
  • Use Ad-Aware
    Download and install Ad-Aware. Update it and scan your computer regularly with it.
  • Use AVG Anti-Spyware
    Update it and scan your computer regularly with it.
  • Use Spybot S&D
    Download and install Spybot S&D. Update it and scan your computer regularly with it.
  • Install SpywareBlaster
    SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed.
  • Install MVPS Hosts file
    This prevents your computer from connecting to harmful sites.
  • Use Firefox browser
    Firefox is faster, safer and better browser than Internet Explorer.
  • Keep your systen up-to-date
    Visit Windows Update regularly.
  • Keep your antivirus and firewall up-to-date
    Scan your computer regularly with your antivirus.
  • Read this article by TonyKlein
    So how did I get infected in the first place?
  • Stand Up and Be Counted !
    The site offers people who have been (or are) victims of malware the opportunity to document their story and, in that way, launch a complaint against the malware and the makers of the malware.

Stay clean and be safe ;)

I followed all the instructions and installed all the recommended softwares.
I checked for update in SSD, but no update available. When i ran a scan in SSD again, the astakiller threat still exist.

What should I do.

Would you mind take a look this new HijackThis log.

Hi again :)

I assume that Spybot found this particular entry:
Code: Select all
AstaKiller: Class ID (Registry key, nothing done)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes\CLSID\{6BF52A52-394A-11D3-B153-00C04F79FAA6}

Just ignore that Spybot finding for now. It should be fixed in the following update...

Your HijackThis log looks clean :)

MVPS Hosts file - need help

Unread postby kerol » November 24th, 2006, 3:27 pm

Hi again.

I forgot to ask. The MVPS Hosts file that you recommend to have, do I need to update it. I think it need to be updated, and doing it is by downloading the new version of the host file. Am I correct?

If it is need to be updated, could you tell me how?

Thanks a lot

Hi again and yes, you need to keep the hosts file updated.

The easy way is to just download and extract the latest version of hosts.zip file to your desktop. Then just run the mvps.bat file and it will replace the old hosts file with the new one.

There are also tools for managing hosts file, eg Hostsman is a very easy to use tool...
