    Hello, and welcome to the forum.

    My name is Simon V., and I'll be glad to help you with your computer problems.

    HijackThis logs can take some time to research, so please be patient with me. I know that you need your computer working as quickly as possible, and I will work hard to help see that happens.
    I am currently looking over your log. As I am a trainee, everything that I post to you must be checked by an Admin or Moderator. Thus, there may be a tiny bit of a delay between posts, but it shouldn't be too long. I will post back shortly with a potential fix.

    Please be patient and I'd be grateful if you would note the following:

  • I will be working on your Malware issues, this may or may not, solve other issues you have with your machine.
  • The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for this issue on this machine.
  • Please continue to review my answers until I tell you your machine appears to be clear. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.
  • It's often worth reading through these instructions and printing them for ease of reference.
  • If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to say or ask! It's better to be sure and safe than sorry.
  • Please reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.

    Hi,

    Your computer is heavily infected. Please take the following advice very serious.

    Identity Theft

  • I'm afraid I have unpleasant news for you. You have a Very Dangerous infection on this machine.
    The infection is delivered by several backdoor trojans.
    It allows outsiders COMPLETE access to every keystroke, account, and password you use while on this machine, and complete access to any other data present...

    IF this computer has been used for any kind of important data, my best recommendation is to disconnect from the internet, reformat the entire drive and re-install your operating system and applications.

    We can likely clean the infected files off the computer, and if you wish we will attempt to do so, but we cannot be sure that the infection didn't do something to your system to reduce the system security. In that instance, even after removal of the infection, you could be subject to another attack or takeover as soon as you re-connect to the internet.

    The decision whether to reformat or not should be based on:

    • The use of the computer - this is the primary factor in the decision whether to reformat and re-install, or just disinfect.
    • The variety of malware - this influences the decision on whether to re-format and re-install, or just disinfect. IN THIS CASE we have a backdoor worm, the worst kind.

    If the computer has been used for any important data, you are strongly advised to do the following, immediately:

    • Disconnect the infected computer from the internet and from any networked computers until the computer can be cleaned.
    • Back up all important data on the machine. Do not back up any Applications (programs). Those should be re-installed from the original source CDs or websites.
    • If you have ever used this computer for shopping, banking, or any transactions relating to your financial well being:
      Call all of your banks, credit card companies, and financial institutions, informing them that you may be a victim of identity theft, and to put a watch on your accounts or change all your account numbers.
    • From a clean computer, change ALL your online passwords -- for ISP login, email, banks, financial accounts, PayPal, eBay, online companies, and 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 password and transaction information.
    • Take any other steps you think appropriate for an attempted identity theft.

    While you are deciding whether to reformat and re-install, this can be a useful link.

    Please let me know what you decide.
