Unread postby theglobal » March 2nd, 2005, 2:44 am

For the life of me, how could someone like Search Miracle ever think anyone would use their search engine.... Anyway, I followed the suggestions on things to do before posting the highjackthis log. Thanks in advance for your help. I'm sure I must have other stuff running that is using resources. You advice is most appreciated.

Mike

Register to Remove

Unread postby ChrisRLG » March 2nd, 2005, 5:05 am

Hello! and welcome to the Malware Removal forums.

----------
Go to Add/Remove programs and remove(uninstall) the following, if present:

Elite Sidebar
Elite Toolbar

The above could appear anywhere within the entry. Be careful not to remove any personal or system software.

----------
Run HiJackThis then:

1. Click "Config..."
2. Click "Misc Tools"
3. Click "Open Process manager"

-

Next, while holding down the CTRL key, locate (if present) and click on (highlight) each of the following:

C:\WINNT\system32\wscntfy.exe

Now double-check and make sure that only those item(s) above are highlighted, then click "Kill process". Now, click "Refresh", check again, and repeat this step if any remain.

----------
Now, let's open a command prompt and unregister the dll(s) we're going to remove, by entering the following:

(to get the command prompt - find the program in your menu or use start> run> cmd.exe - then type or copy these two lines One at a time pressing enter after each.)

regsvr32 /u EliteToolBar version 59.dll
regsvr32 /u EliteSideBar 08.dll

It's ok, if these aren't found or 'error' out. If you want, just copy and paste the individual lines to the command prompt to save on the typing.


----------
Before we begin, let's move HiJackThis to it's own folder; like c:\HJT. When we're done 'cleaning' off your system, we're going to 'flush' the temporary folders which, with HiJackThis in it's current location, we'll lose both the program and the backups it creates. These backups are important in case we need to restore any 'fixed' entry(s) later.

Also move the "Backups" folder, for HiJackThis, if present.

----------
Run HiJackThis and click "Scan", then check(tick) the following, if present:

Now, with all windows closed except HiJackThis, click "Fix checked".

----------
Locate and delete the following item(s), if present. Make sure your able to view system and hidden files/ folders:

folders...

C:\WINNT\EliteToolBar
C:\WINNT\EliteSideBar

files...

C:\WINNT\system32\wscntfy.exe
C:\winnt\system32\elitedpe32.exe
c:\temp\salm.exe

-

Note that some of these file(s) may or may not be present. If present, and cannot be deleted because they're 'in use', try deleting them from "Safe Mode".

----------
Post back a new log, and let me know how everything goes.

Chris,

All Clean up instructions followed. However, wscntfy.exe continues to run. It could not be stopped in the process manager or Task Manager. Upon connecting to the Internet, C:\winnt\system32\elitedpe32.exe attempted to access the Internet using a file called dl1.exe. The firewall would not let it execute. I went in a second time and ran Ad Ware and Spy Bot... restarting the computer each time. At one point when trying to kill wscntry.exe, I received a notice from HijackThis that that process might be a service. I did not see that process name when I looked at services.msc. I am receiving popups from SearchMiracle.com, valueclick.com, partypoker.com and others.

I await further advice and instructions, and sincerely appreciate your help.

Mike

Hi there,

Lets do this part of the fix - completely in safe mode.

Please set your system to show all files; see here for how to do this if you're unsure.

Use taskmanager to endtask the following process if running.
C:\winnt\system32\elitedpe32.exe

Close all programs down, leaving only HijackThis running.
Place a check against the following items:

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyServer = proxy:80
(This may be legit - part of norton perhaps - BUT some malware use this too. - so we will fix for safety sake)
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [antiware] C:\winnt\system32\elitedpe32.exe


Click on Fix Checked and exit HijackThis.

Stay in Safe Mode: see here if you don't know how to do this.

Using Windows Explorer, locate the following files/folders, and delete them:

C:\winnt\system32\elitedpe32.exe

Exit Explorer, and reboot as normal afterwards.

Post back a fresh HijackThis log and we'll take another look.

New info - has been passed to me about this new infection that is going round - one that you probably have.

It actually alters the explorer.exe file itself.

So :-

You have a infection that needs a 'process' to remove.

It is described here in a Post by CalamityJane

Please follow that - and then post back here with a new hijackthis log please.

More issues

Unread postby theglobal » March 8th, 2005, 3:19 pm

Sorry, I've been out of town... however, as a have done some pre-work on this issue, I found the following:

I cannot back up the registry, even in Safe Mode. Also, I cannot turn off System Restore. I guess I could try to make the repairs as suggested and take my chances. Any thoughts?

I believe the fix that Jane has posted is good.

She is a very experianced malware fighter, she appeared in an webcast interview for with MS.

So I trust her judgement on that fix.

I would not expect anything from her fix to cause you to need to restore. BUT as always with dealing with malware the unexpected can happen.

Ensure you have backups of data at the minimum - dont forget favorites and email.

To the best of my knowledge, I followed the insturctions posted by Calamity Jane. When I run KAV now, it comes up clean. However, for some reason, I can not get out to the Internet. I show connected with packets going out, but not in. I diconnected firewalls and still no connection. Also, memory is running so slow, it's unbelievable. I started up with Safe Mode and diagnostic startup and still cannot get out to the Internet. While the machine ran faster, I still have memory problems when I open up something like Word or other certain other programs. I re-loaded XP Professional, but still with no changes. I checked with the DSL provider and they are properly connected to my modem.

I also ran SpyBot and Ad-Aware and they are now clean. I removed the Spybot program, and also Norton Internet software. So, it appears, at least on the surface, that I have eliminated the virus... maybe not??? I am posting my Hijack log below. Please let me know if you have any suggestions, and thank you for your help.
Mike

Well your log now look clean.

Your current problem may be because you have Norton and KAV running.

Uninstall KAV - it has done its job - and see if that helps.

Post back with a new HJT and try to explain how your system in behaving then.

I unloaded the KAV and everything appears to be working fine, except that my MSN Explorer errors out (requires closing MSN) on a random basis for no apparent reason.

This has been a most rewarding effort. I sincerely appreciate the work you and others are doing to fight the MalWare problem.

You have one line for KAV still in your log.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [KAVPersonal50] "C:\Program Files\Kaspersky Lab\Kaspersky Anti-Virus Personal\kav.exe" /minimize

You could fix that with HJT now that you have uninstalled that program.

You could also consider the O4 lines in your LOG, they are the programs that start every time you turn on your machine. If you do not use that program every time, consider turning off the auto startup of that program. You can use spybots startup list (from the advanced mode) to check or uncheck for starting at the next boot to try out what works best.

The MSN explorer problem - is not now malware for what I can see.

Many thanks for the donation (only the second one I have had) it is appreciated.

==========================

This is my normal post for when you are clear - which you now are - or seem to be. Please advise of any problems you still have :-

Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:

  1. Disable and Enable System Restore. - If you are using Windows ME or XP then you should disable and re-enable system restore to make sure there are no infected files found in a restore point.
    You can find instructions on how to enable and re enable system restore here:
    Managing Windows Millennium System Restore
    or
    Windows XP System Restore Guide
    re-enable system restore with instructions from tutorial above
  2. Make your Internet Explorer more secure - This can be done by following these simple instructions:

    1. From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
    2. Click once on the Security tab
    3. Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
    4. Click once on the Custom Level button.

      1. Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
      2. Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
      3. Change the Initialise and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable
      4. Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt
      5. Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt
      6. Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt
      7. When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
      8. If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
    5. Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.
  3. Use an Anti Virus Software - It is very important that your computer has an anti-virus software running on your machine. This alone can save you a lot of trouble with malware in the future. See this link for a listing of some on line & their stand-alone anti virus programs:
    Computer Safety On line - Anti-Virus
  4. Update your Anti Virus Software - It is imperitive that you update your Anti virus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your anti virus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.
  5. Use a Firewall - I can not stress how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer. Without a firewall your computer is susceptible to being hacked and taken over. Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly. For an article on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones see the link below:
    Computer Safety On line - Software Firewalls
  6. Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit http://www.windowsupdate.com regularly. This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.
  7. Install Spybot - Search and Destroy - Install and download Spybot - Search and Destroy with its TeaTimer option.
    This will provide real-time spyware & hijacker protection on your computer alongside your virus protection. You should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an anti virus software. A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:
    Instructions for - Spybot S & D and Ad-aware
  8. Install Ad-Aware - Install and download Ad-Aware. You should also scan your computer with the program on a regular basis just as you would an anti virus software in conjunction with Spybot. A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:
    Instructions for - Spybot S & D and Ad-aware
  9. Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will added a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs. A article on anti-malware products with links for this program and others can be found here:
    Computer Safety on line - Anti-Malware
  10. Update all these programs regularly - Make sure you update all the programs I have listed regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.
Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.

May your God go with you..

Thanks for everything. I really appreciate it. As a followup, I thought you would be interested in the following: I ran Norton AV and it came up with 4 items. They included included Adware.BargainBuddy at C:/WINNT/System32/mac80ex.idf and at the same path another file called netut80ex.vxd. Also, Norton noted BargainBuddy was included in the kav5.0.227_personalenexe file... rather odd, I would say. It also noted that BargainBuddy was included within the file located at C:/Program Files/BullsEye Network/Uninstall.exe. However, Norton would not clean the items up. I did a little Internet research and there were many references to the mac80ex.idf and netut80ex.vxd files. Several references pointed to the Microsoft AntiSpyware Bata software and indicated good results in removing the problem. I downloaded the program and ran it and it yielded some rather interesting results. I am including the results of the scan for your review. The software removed the two files just noted. I will run Norton again to see what it picks up with regards to the 4 items originally noted.

As you will see, the Microsoft AntiSpyware program came up with a bunch of threats (Spy Bot and Ad-Aware did not fine these problems) ...a majority of which are related to the SearchMiracle problem that started this whole thing in the first place... The moral seems to point to a multi-pronged attack using more than one tool. At any rate, I would be interested in your thoughts about what you see here.

The M$ beta program MAY have removed some immunization that either spybot S&D or spywareblaster had installed.

It is currently seeing them as if they are the actual infection. A type of false positive.

So if you had Spybot &/or spywareblaster installed - re-do the immunizations and then re run M$ to see if they have returned. If so you will understand why we do not yet recommend the M$ tool.

A multi program approach is most certainly the way to go.

I use :-

Spywareblaster - immunizations.
Spybot - immunizations
IE-Spyad - restricted zones addition
AVG7 - Active anti Virus (paid version)
Trojan Hunter - active Trojan scanner
Spybot - Teatimer Function - active Malware Scanner
Winpatrol - active Malware Scanner.
NAT Router - in place of a firewall.
HJT - take a snapshot - use to monitor changes.

BUT I do need to go to bad sites to check details of victims logs - so am MORE likely to be attacked than most.

With those installed I have never (unless on purpose) been infected.

As you suggested, I ran SpyBot again and it said all Spyware definitions were being protected. I agian ran M$ AntiSpyware and I kept getting new spyware infections. In particular I got eXact.Downloader, which came back every time a ran M$ Antispyware. In addition, I got new spyware threats...some different form the earlier ones. The next thing I did was to turn off System Restore, open Explorer in Safe Mode, along with Task Manager and M$ AntiSpyware. I then turned off explorer and ran the scan agian.

I got the following scan results:

Detected Spyware Cookies
No spyware cookies were found during this scan.
------------------------
The program cleaned all exceptions above. This time everything was cleaned off. I ran SpyBot, Ad-aware, and a-squared, and except for a few tracking cookies, everything was clean. I ran M$ AntiSpyware again and it showed 0 items.

So, the M$ product may have done the trick. I will post again if anything unusual happens.
