Can't remove Virtumonde varient

Unread postby Donners » December 20th, 2007, 5:46 am

I've ran into a frustrating situation, and would appreciate help.

Spybot detected a BHO and reg entry of "Virtumonde.Generic", and purportedly removed it. However, on the next restart, it was back.

I've tried both Spybot and SUPERAntiSpyware, which found a few more registry entries, and still the BHO keeps coming back. I've tried all the specialised removal tools, and they don't pick it up, and the values listed in step-by-step removals aren't present. I've even manually deleted all the registry entries that refer to its ID, without any difference. As the log shows, the problem is that the detection doesn't refer to a file which I can delete, but there's something that keeps it coming back.

HijackThis log as follows (with Virtumonde BHO in bold):

Hi Donners,

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.
-------------------------------------------------
FIX HIJACKTHIS ENTRIES

Open up Hijackthis.
Click on do a system scan only.
Place a checkmark next to these lines(if still present).

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {9A072AA0-A30B-4717-A573-4511BB05F6AC} - (no file)
O6 - HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel present << fix this only if you didn't set these policies yourself.
O15 - Trusted Zone: http://www.ripitdownloads.com << again fix this if you didn't add this site in your Trusted Zone.


Then close all windows except Hijackthis and click Fix Checked
Close HijackThis.
-------------------------------------------------
Run Kaspersky Online AV Scanner
Using Internet Explorer Go to http://www.kaspersky.com/kos/eng/partner/default/kavwebscan.html and click the Accept button at the end of the page.
Note for Internet Explorer 7 users: If at any time you have trouble with the accept button of the licence, click on the Zoom tool located at the right bottom of the IE window and set the zoom to 75 %. Once the license accepted, reset to 100%.
  • Read the Requirements and limitations before you click Accept.
  • Allow the ActiveX download if necessary.
  • Once the database has downloaded, click Next.
  • Click Scan Settings and change the "Scan using the following antivirus database" from standard to extended and then click OK.
  • Click on "My Computer" and then put the kettle on!
  • When the scan has completed, click Save Report As...
  • Enter a name for the file in the Filename: text box and then click the down arrow to the right of Save as type: and select text file (*.txt)
  • Click Save - by default the file will be saved to your Desktop, but you can change this if you wish.
Copy and paste the report into your next reply along with a fresh HJT log and a description of how your PC is behaving.

I'm not quite sure what it was, whether one of the items you listed for deletion was responsible for it coming back or if HijackThis is simply a more effective remover of the BHO than SpyBot and SUPERAntiSpyware, but the BHo has not returned since I followed your suggestions. Oddly, Kaspersky picked up nothing before or after removing the entries, SpyBot picked up one remaining Registry stats entry (which hasn't re-appeared since), and I've had no further problems.

Thanks for your help! It was clear, concise and apparently effective.

If it's of any interest, I've included the reports you requested:

Re: Can't remove Virtumonde varient

Unread postby chryssi2001 » December 25th, 2007, 10:11 am

Hello Donners,

I am glad, that BHO didn't return. "Virtumonde.Generic" is a very stubborn infection.
----------------------------------------------
Do you use Zone alarm firewall or Windows Firewall? You should have only 1 firewall.
I can see evidence of Zone alarm Firewall in your log, but is it active?
Have a read below regarding Firewalls.

FIREWALL
Without a firewall your computer is susceptible to being hacked and taken over. If you use the Windows Firewall you might think that's sufficient but it only controls one way of the traffic (inbound). Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly. It's preferable to install one of the suggested firewalls.

FREE FIREWALLS
Tutorial about Firewalls can be found here
----------------------------------------------
Congratulations you are clean! :)
Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:

This is a good time to clear your existing system restore points and establish a new clean restore point:
  • Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore
  • Select Create a restore point, and Ok it.
  • Next, go to Start > Run and type in cleanmgr
  • Select the More options tab
  • Choose the option to clean up system restore and OK it.
This will remove all restore points except the new one you just created.

Here are some free programs I recommend that could help you improve your computer's security.
