Malware problems - Please Help!

Unread postby Roma_Invicta » December 7th, 2007, 1:26 am

Hi, I wonder if you can help. I'm having problems with various instances of malware. In particular, ad's keep popping up for things such as wixawin, skypoker,

I have installed and run various recommended programs such as Ad-Aware, Spybot, Trojan Hunter, each finding various instances of spyware/viruses but none fully solving the problem. On top of this, it's starting to really affect the performance of my previously trouble-free laptop. The speed of my machine is now much slower, causing issues with typing, browsing etc. Windows will now not open properly when I try and 'restart'; only if I shut down the machine, wait and boot up again. Furthermore, it has refused to open in safe mode when I tried to do so. Furhermore, another minor thing but still extremely annoying, when I am browsing on the net with more than one tab or window open, it repeatedly swaps back and forth between the separate tabs/windows as soon as new data loads up on one of the pages, at which point it pops up over whatever I'm doing. As a result, I am unable to browse effectively in more than one browser window/tab which is very frustrating.

Thanks very much for your help. I have renamed Hijack this. Here is the new log. As you can see I am also having problems such as windows telling me of missing files at startup which was not happening before these malware/trojan problems.

Hello Roma,

Set Your Computer to Show All Files
  • Click Start.
  • Click My Computer.
  • Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
  • Select the View Tab.
  • Under the Hidden files and folders heading, select Show hidden files and folders.
  • Uncheck Hide protected operating system files (recommended).
  • Click Yes to confirm.
  • Uncheck the Hide file extensions for known file types.
  • Click OK.
In addition, go to Start, Search. When you click on 'All files and folders' on the left pane, click on the 'More advanced options' at the bottom.
Make sure that 'Search system folders', 'Search hidden files and folders', and 'Search subfolders' are checked.
------------------------------------------
Upload a File to Jotti
Please visit http://virusscan.jotti.org/
Click on Browse... and navigate to the following file: C:\WINDOWS\system32\sldpj6.exe
Click Open and submit the file.
Please let me know the results.

Repeat the procedure for this file too:C:\WINDOWS\system32\__c00AD900.dat

I could not find the second file you mentioned C:\WINDOWS\system32\__c00AD900.dat anywhere in C:\WINDOWS\system32\ or anywhere in C:\WINDOWS\ for that matter so I couldn't run it through Jotti and am not sure what to do on that one.

I think there are still several problems with malware which are making the computer run slower than normal, paticularly on start up and of course these missing files. I still get the odd ad popping up although not as often as a few days ago. I await your further advice. Thanks.

Hi Roma,

I am afraid i have some bad news for you.

Your computer has multiple infections, including a backdoor. A backdoor gives intruders complete control of your computer, logs your keystrokes, steal personal information, etc.
This allows hackers to remotely control your computer, steal critical system information and Download and Execute files

I would counsel you to disconnect this PC from the Internet immediately. If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.

Though the Trojan has been identified and can be killed, because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of Trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the OS. Please read these for more information:

How Do I Handle Possible Identify Theft, Internet Fraud and CC Fraud?

When Should I Format, How Should I Reinstall

We can attempt to clean this machine but i can't guarantee that it will be 100% secure afterwards.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Please let us know what you have decided to do in your next post.

Hi, yeh If you could tell me how to clean it as far as possible please as well as restore the missing files etc. (if you know how) then I will take my laptop in to a company nearby which I have used before on another machine and which is very reliable to get a second opinion on whether the system is compromised long-term and whether any further action is necessary after that. I haven't used internet banking on the laptop since the problems started and haven't had any indications that someone has been trying to remotely control stuff/execute programs etc. so it may hopefully not be as serious as you suggest. If all else fails and a reformat is the only option, that doesn't worry me too much as long as I am able to copy some files and programs to an external hard drive beforehand. I haven't actually seen any pop-up ad's for days and things are a lot quicker now so if you could direct me as to how to remove the trojan(s) and restore missing files etc. I would be very grateful and I will then make my own decisions from there.

I await your response
Thanks

Hi Roma,

P2P PROGRAMS

IMPORTANT I notice there are signs of one or more P2P (Person to Person) File Sharing Programs on your computer.

BitComet

I'd like you to read the Guidelines for P2P Programs where we explain why it's not a good idea to have them.

Also available here.

My recommendation is you go to Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and uninstall the programs listed above (in red).

If you choose not to remove them, please do not use them until this computer is clean.
-------------------------------------------------
Disable MS Defender until the computer is clean
Microsoft Defender normally provides real-time protection from spyware, however it may interfere with what we need to do. We will disable it until the machine is clean when it can be re-enabled.

- Open Windows Defender
- Select Tools and then General Settings
- Under Real Time Protection Options uncheck Turn on real-time protection
- Select Save
Don't forget to re-enable it, when your computer is clean.
-------------------------------------------------
Disable Trojan Hunter Guard until the computer is clean
Go to TrojanHunter Guard icon in the lower right corner of your screen. It is a light blue icon with a magnifying glass that can be difficult to see, but the handle is red. Right click it and select settings. Uncheck "Load at startup" and "Enabled".
Don't forget to re-enable it, when your computer is clean.
-------------------------------------------------
Disable Spybot's TeaTimer. This is a two step process.

Spybot S&D's tea timer normally provides real-time protection from spyware, however it may interfere with what we need to do. We will disable it until the machine is clean when it can be re-enabled.

First step:
  • Right-click the Spybot Icon in the System Tray (looks like a blue/white calendar with a padlock symbol)
  • If you have the new version 1.5, Click once on Resident Protection, then Right click the Spybot icon again and make sure Resident Protection is now Unchecked. The Spybot icon in the System tray should now be now colorless.
  • If you have Version 1.4, Click on Exit Spybot S&D Resident
Second step, For Either Version :
  • Open Spybot S&D
  • Click Mode, choose Advanced Mode
  • Go To the bottom of the Vertical Panel on the Left, Click Tools
  • then, also in left panel, click Resident shows a red/white shield.
  • If your firewall raises a question, say OK
  • In the Resident protection status frame, Uncheck the box labeled Resident "Tea-Timer"(Protection of over-all system settings) active
  • OK any prompts.
  • Use File, Exit to terminate Spybot
  • Reboot your machine for the changes to take effect.
Don't forget to re-enable it, when your computer is clean.
-------------------------------------------------
COMBOFIX-Script
  • Please open Notepad (Start -> Run -> type notepad in the Open field -> OK) and copy and paste the text present inside the code box below:

  • Save this as CFScript.txt and change the "Save as type" to "All Files" and place it on your desktop.

    Image
  • Referring to the screenshot above, drag CFScript.txt into ComboFix.exe.
  • ComboFix will now run a scan on your system. It may reboot your system when it finishes. This is normal.
  • When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Copy and paste the contents of the log in your next reply.
CAUTION: Do not mouse-click ComboFix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.

Hi chryssi,

I thought I'd un-installed bit comet already as it was through this that I acquired the malware/trojans etc. in the 1st place and I don't plan to use it again. I think I've now managed to delete all files associated with it from my system.

Performed all actions re. disabling scanners/guards etc.

Ran notepad script in combofix. It ran, said it was cleaning, rebooted my computer but did not produce a log file. I tried the process repeatedly, even without running the script but just clicking the combofix icon and the same thing happened. It has also altered my clock settings etc. suggesting the process wasn't fully completed but don't worry I know how to change them back. I looked to see If I could find a log and in the Combofix.txt notepad file this is what I found...

On the plus side, I think we've managed to get rid of all adware, the computer is running much faster (start-up still takes longer than it used to before the problems though this may be due to the amount of scanning/anti-spyware/anti-virus programs I've since installed. Any further advice on or suggestions how to get combofix to complete the cleaning process would be much appreciated.

Thanks again for your continued help.

Hi Roma,

Any further advice on or suggestions how to get combofix to complete the cleaning process would be much appreciated.

The cleaning process finished when you used the script and run Combofix, but we still have some more work to do.

It ran, said it was cleaning, rebooted my computer but did not produce a log file.

The log file it creates is in C:\Combofix.txt. The part you posted is only the script file part.
Combofix shows that you run the tool 3 times. So there must be other reports. Please check again.
If no other reports are found:

Please run Combofix again and post back the report. Don't use the script. You've already done that.
If this doesn't work, please uninstall completely Combofix, and use my links to install it again and follow the prompts, so it will be installed on your Desktop.

Your 1st Combofix report shows that is not running from Desktop.
Running from: C:\Documents and Settings\Adam\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\SEEN10Y0\ComboFix[1].exe

Hi chryssi.

Sorry I haven't posted for a few days but I decided to take the laptop in to the place I mentioned in my previous post to get this seen to and fixed. They have removed all traces of any malware/trojans and I'm satisfied from what they say that the machine is now competely clean and there is no permanent damage. I have been very busy this weekend and haven't had the chance to get to another machine to let you know. Your help and guidance was no doubt important in the cleaning process and was very helpful throughout.

Thank you very much for all your help.

All the best.
