Re: Trojan infestation

Unread postby askey127 » February 21st, 2008, 7:30 am

jimhall,
A bit to do here, but it should go fairly smoothly.
Please don't install or disable anything I don't instruct here.
You have more anti-spyware programs than you need.
If you cannot disable Spybot's TeaTimer, I will have you Uninstall Spybot in my next post. It can be re-installed later.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Disable Spybot's TeaTimer. This is a two step process.
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 older version 1.4, Click on Exit Spybot S&D Resident
  • 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.
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.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Disable A-Squared Guard
- Open a-square
- Click on "Configure Background-Guard"
- Deselect "Enable background guard on system startup"
- Close window
- Close a-square
- Reboot your machine for the changes to take effect before running HiJackThis.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Disable Ad-Aware 2007 Service
Go to Start, Run OR Start, Programs, Accessories, Command Prompt and type Services.msc and click OK.
Under the Extended Tab, find this service.
Ad-Aware 2007 Service
Click once on the service to highlight it.
Right-Click on the service. Click on Properties
Select the General tab.
Next to Service Status, click Stop.
Click the Arrow-down tab on the right-hand side of the Start-up Type box.
From the drop-down menu, click on Disabled
Click Apply , then OK
-----------------------------------------------------------
Remove log items with HighjackThis. Start HijackThis (or reveal.exe).
Click Do System Scan Only. When the Scan is complete, Check the following entries:
(Some of these lines may be missing)

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Page_URL = http://www.dell4me.com/myway
R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://www.dell4me.com/myway
R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {02478D38-C3F9-4efb-9B51-7695ECA05670} - (no file)
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [RCAutoLiveUpdate] C:\Program Files\Max Registry Cleaner\MaxLiveUpdateRC.exe -AUTO
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [RCSystemTray] C:\Program Files\Max Registry Cleaner\MaxRCSystemTray.exe

Make sure Every other window except HJT is closed (No other tabs showing in the bottom tray), and Click Fix Checked
Click the "X" in the upper right corner of the HiJackThis window to close it.
----------------------------------------------------------
Download and Install CCleaner
  • Download CCleaner from here . Choose the Slim version.
  • Double click on ccsetupXXX_slim.exe to start the installation of CCleaner. (XXX is the version number)
  • Click OK
  • Click Next
  • Click I agree
  • Click Next
  • Click Install
  • Once the installation has finished, click Finish
-----------------------------------------------------------
Set Options in CCleaner and run Cleaning Scan.
Open CCleaner if it's not already running.
( Do not use the Registry block to clean anything with this program. It is for experts only and it is risky).
  • Select Cleaner Settings.
    Check Internet Explorer, Windows Explorer, and System so that all items are checked. In the Advanced section, have a check only on Old PreFetch Data.
  • Click on the Options block on the left. Select Advanced.
    Uncheck Only delete files in Windows Temp folders older than 48 hours.
  • Set Cookie Retention.
    Click on the Options block on the left, then choose Cookies.
    Under the Cookies to delete pane, highlight any cookies you would like to retain permanently (those companies or sites with which you regularly visit or do business), and click the right arrow > to move them to the Cookies to keep pane.
  • Run Cleaning Scan. Click on the Cleaner block on the left. Choose the Windows tab.
    Click the Run Cleaner button. This process could take a while. When CCleaner shows how much has been removed, cleaning is finished.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Retrieve the Installed Programs List from CCleaner
Open CCleaner if it's not already running.
In the Left Pane, click Tools
Verify that Uninstall is highlighted in color, or click on it.
In the lower Right, click Save to Text File.
Pull down the arrow at the top of the Save dialog and choose Desktop as the location.
You can leave the filename as install.txt
Click Save
Exit CCleaner by clicking on the X button in the upper right of the CCleaner window.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Re: Trojan infestation

askey127:

First: The multiple spyware programs were a result of self-treatment. I meant to remove prior to getting help on my problems but failed to remember. At the appropriate time, please advise and I will remove all or the ones you suggest. I was hesitant to do so during this process.
Second: When this is all said and done, I would appreciate a recommendation on program(s) to run to protect me from this happening again. I currently use McAfee and run Ad-aware and Spybot occassionally.

Thanks again for your continued help,
jimhall

Now to your last instructions:

1. Unable to disable TeaTimer in first step. The icon was not in the system tray. I was able to complete the second step.
2. Unable to disable the A-Square Background Guard. Again, not in system tray. I opened the program, looked at help but nothing to help disable. Apparently, it must be setup on installation. I could be wrong.
3. Everything else I was able to complete. Logs follow:

Unread postby askey127 » February 22nd, 2008, 7:21 am

jimhall,
Be sure to keep Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, update it regularly, and use it for scans.

If you want to keep SuperAnti-Spyware Free, that's OK, but.... they just started a marketing alliance with Sony. No telling what sleaze will come of that.
If you choose to keep it, - DON'T EVER USE SuperAntiSpyware's SAFEBOOT option for any reason.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Remove Program(s) with CCleaner
Open CCleaner. In the Left Pane, click Tools. Verify that Uninstall is highlighted in color, or click on it.
Click and Highlight the Following Programs, one at a time, and click the Run Uninstaller button for each one.
Wait for completion of each one before highlighting and Uninstalling the next.
Adobe Reader 7.0.8
Ad-Aware 2007
a-squared Free 3.1
AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5
J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 10
J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 11
J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 6
Java 2 Runtime Environment, SE v1.4.2_03
Java(TM) 6 Update 2
Java(TM) 6 Update 3
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 6 Update 1
Max Registry Cleaner
Spybot - Search & Destroy
Spybot - Search & Destroy 1.5.2.20
Viewpoint Media Player

Take extra care in answering questions posed by any Uninstaller. Some questions may be worded to deceive you into Keeping the program.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Reset Options in CCleaner for Regular Use.
Open CCleaner if it's not already running.
  • Select Cleaner Settings.
    Check Internet Explorer, Windows Explorer, and System so that all items are checked. Then under Internet Explorer, Uncheck "History". In the Advanced section, have a check only on Old PreFetch Data.
  • Click on the Options block on the left. Select Advanced.
    Check Only delete files in Windows Temp folders older than 48 hours.
  • Set CCleaner to Run When Computer Starts. Click on the Options block on the left, then choose Settings. Check Run CCleaner when computer starts.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Run CCleaner Cleaning Scan.
If it's not already running, Start CCleaner.
Click on the Cleaner block on the left. Choose the Windows tab.
Click the Run Cleaner button. This process could take a while. When CCleaner shows how much has been removed, cleaning is finished.
Exit CCleaner by clicking on the X button in the upper right of the CCleaner window.
----------------------------- -------------------
Issues with Older Adobe Acrobat Programs
It's possible that PC slowdowns can be caused by one of your older Adobe Acrobat versions trying to update itself.
That program (esp Acrobat 5) has a buggy updater which can hang at bootup. It can phone home interminably and slow your PC to a crawl. Anytime after your machine boots and you notice a slowdown, use Ctrl-Alt-Del to bring up task manager.
Click on the Processes tab, and note the names of the process files which are using most of the CPU resources. May be something like Adobeupd.exe
In any case, you should install and use the latest version of the free Acrobat reader to look at web-based PDF files, even if you keep an older Acrobat version for editing.
This will prevent PC infection due to opening a malicious web-based PDF with one of the older, vulnerable, applications.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Install New Adobe Reader and Java
You can download the new version of Free Adobe Reader here: http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html

Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment(JRE), and install it to your computer. It is the 4th one down on the page, called Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update 4
Download it, choose save, and save it to your desktop.Then doubleclick it, and it will install the newest version of Java for you to use.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Post a New HiJackThis Log
Reboot your computer. Start HijackThis.
Click Do System Scan and Save a Log File.
When the Scan is complete, select the whole log (Ctrl-A), copy and paste the log contents in a reply.

Let me know how it's running.
If everything looks good. I will have one or two final recommendations going forward.

Askey 127:

Everything seems to be okay. Nothing unusual booting up. The CClean scan took 2.33 seconds. I was concerned because you said it might take a while.

Looking forward to any recommendations that will keep me from going through this again. I really appreciate your help.

Re: Trojan infestation

Unread postby askey127 » February 23rd, 2008, 8:00 pm

jimhall,
I would keep MalwareBytes Anti-Malware. It's a very good scanner that is easy to update manually.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Reset System Restore Points
  • Click Start > Help and Support
  • Click on ->Undo changes to your computer with System Restore.
  • Click Create A Restore Point then click Next. Give it a name it and then click Create, then Close.
  • Close Help and Support Center.
  • Click Start | Run and type Cleanmgr
  • Select (C: ) then click OK.
  • Click the More Options tab.
  • Click Clean Up in the System Restore Section.
This will remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.
This System Restore sequence is not to be done regularly, but only as a Special Case after the removal of malware.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will add a large list of programs and sites to your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from accidentally running or downloading known malicious programs. Available from http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html
After the installation, click Download Latest Protection Updates. When it finishes, click Enable All Protection.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Download and Install a HOSTS File
A HOSTS file is a big list of bad web sites. The list has a specific format, a specific name, (name is just HOSTS with no file extension), and a specific location. Your machine always looks at that file in that location before connecting to a web site to verify the address. So the HOSTS listing can be used to "short circuit" a request to a bad website by giving it the address of your own machine.

Whatever list your HOSTS file has will be used by your browser. You can open the HOSTS file with Notepad and look at it.
In Windows XP, it is located in this folder ==> C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\

Be sure to disable the service "DNS Client" FIRST to allow the use of large HOSTS files without slowdowns.
If this isn't done first, the next reboot may take a VERY LONG TIME.
This is how to do it. First be sure you are signed in as a user with administrative privileges:
Stop and Disable the DNS Client Service
Go to Start, Run and type Services.msc and click OK.
Under the Extended Tab, Scroll down and find this service.
DNS Client
Right-Click on the DNS Client Service. Choose Properties
Select the General tab. Click on the Stop button.
Click the Arrow-down tab on the right-hand side at the Start-up Type box.
From the drop-down menu, click on Manual
Click the Apply tab, then click OK


Download BlueTack's HOSTS Manager here, using Internet Explorer:
http://www.bluetack.co.uk/forums/index.php?act=dscript&CODE=showdetails&f_id=5
A short distance down the page in the center, click on the Download button. Agree to the license.
On the next page, to the right side of where it says Download Estimates, right click on the underlined word "Hosts Manager" choose "Save Target As" and download the installer Hosts20setup.exe to your desktop.
Double click the Installer on your desktop and let it Install the Hosts Manager

After the installation is complete, click on the Hosts Manager icon on your desktop. (You can delete the Hosts Switch icon).
When the manager comes up, go to the left pane, and click Download.
It will load 70,000 lines or more. When it finishes, also in the left pane, click Replace, and then Save.
You can use this manager to handle your HOSTS file download, edits, and most any other HOSTS issue.

If you have a firewall, you may have to give permissions at various times to Unlock the present default HOSTS file and install the new one.

If you are interested, extra information about HOSTS files :
Read an excellent tutorial about HOSTS files (the Bluetack version) here:
http://www.bluetack.co.uk/forums/index.php?showtopic=8406

There is a very detailed resource for those wanting to spend more time reading up, or to have as a reference:
http://www.bluetack.co.uk/forums/index.php?showtopic=8337

You can see another HOSTS file tutorial here : http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm
and choose to manually download and install the MVPS HOSTS File instead of using the BlueTack HOSTS.
The BlueTack version (70k+ entries) is more aggressive than the mvps (12k + entries), and targets adware sites as well as more dangerous ones.

Install WinPatrol - Download and Install the Free WinPatrol, and view Instructions here: http://www.winpatrol.com/winpatrol.html
- WinPatrol is an active program that drops a "Scotty Dog" icon into the system tray (right click to check/change status), allows you to monitor/edit startups, services, Browser helpers, and prompts for permission if any program tries to change your system. The inexpensive PLUS version is worth it, to give you extra details about the files and processes on your system, and provide incoming protections. You can upgrade from the Free to the PLUS version anytime.

You should be good to go
