Hijacked shortcut??

Unread postby Stonyrock » February 24th, 2008, 2:21 pm

am cleaning for a friend of mine. Ad aware and Avast are coming up clean I did get rid ANTI -Spyware Shield with great difficulty. My problem is my internet connection through the router seems good, but when thye connect direct to DSL they get an annoying amount of Pop-Ups. I suspect there is a redirect on thier Shortcut, but am not sure. I am posting the Hi-Jack this log and am very suspect of item O17

Hi,
You have a couple of infections going on here.

Firstly, I believe we have some files hiding from us, I'm going to flush them out.

Please go to the C:\Program Files\HijackThis folder. Right click on the HijackThis.exe file and select "Rename". Rename it removal.exe,

Then run HijackThis again and post a new log please.

Thanks dan

OK, since that time I have connected to the internet and indeed a constant barrage of pop-ups were appearing. I removed the cs1\service through Hijack this and now noticed a wierd dll appearing called vofissta in the hijack this log and in the start-up using msconfig. I checked off vofissta in the start-up and it appeared that on the first internet start-up that pop-ups were gone, but on the second start-up, they re-appeared. I did a little more research and ran combo-fix and found it removed a Help folder in in the Programs folder and included with that was vofissta and a lot of other files that I had not seen. I have run the Hi-Jack this log ( sorry I don't have it to post here) and it appeared to be OK. I restarted computer and the internet numerous times and pop-ups were not occuring. I had left the internet on for 1 hour and all seems Ok. If I get a chance I will post the newest Hi-Jack this log, but I think that the Combo-fIx may have done the trick.

Re: Hijacked shortcut??

Unread postby dan12 » February 25th, 2008, 8:15 pm

Hi, you have done a good job, there are a few bits that need attention and I would like to run a couple of scans to pickup the loose ends.

Make a uninstall list using HijackThis
To access the Uninstall Manager you would do the following:

1. Start HijackThis
2. Click on the Config button
3. Click on the Misc Tools button
4. Click on the Open Uninstall Manager button.

You will now be presented with a screen similar to the one below:

Image

5. Click on the Save list... button and specify where you would like to save this file. When you press Save button a notepad will open with the contents of that file. Simply copy and paste the contents of that notepad here on your next reply.

----------------------------


1. Close any open browsers.

2. Open notepad and copy/paste the text in the quotebox below into it:

Code: Select all
    File::
C:\WINDOWS\system32\mljgfcy.dll
C:\DelUS.bat
    Folder::

    Registry::
[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\shared tools\msconfig\startupreg\609548a5]

    Driver::

    


Save this as CFScript.txt, in the same location as ComboFix.exe


Image

Refering to the picture above, drag CFScript into ComboFix.exe

When finished, it shall produce a log for you at "C:\ComboFix.txt"

Note:
Do not mouseclick combofix's window whilst it's running. That may cause it to stall




: Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware :

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to your desktop.

  • Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
  • At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select Perform full scan, then click Scan.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When completed, a log will open in Notepad. please copy and paste the log into your next reply
    • If you accidently close it, the log file is saved here and will be named like this:
    • C:\\Documents and Settings\\Username\\Application Data\\Malwarebytes\\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\\Logs\\mbam-log-date (time).txt

please do an online scan with Kaspersky Online Scanner

Click on Kaspersky Online Scanner

You will be prompted to install an ActiveX component from Kaspersky, Click Yes.
  • The program will launch and then start to download the latest definition files.
  • Once the scanner is installed and the definitions downloaded, click Next.
  • Now click on Scan Settings
  • In the scan settings make that the following are selected:
  • Scan using the following Anti-Virus database:
  • Extended (If available otherwise Standard)
  • Scan Options:
  • Scan Archives
  • Scan Mail Bases
  • Click OK
  • Now under select a target to scan select My Computer
  • The scan will take a while so be patient and let it run. Once the scan is complete it will display if your system has been infected.
  • Now click on the Save as Text button:
  • Save the file to your desktop.
  • Copy and paste that information in your next post.

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%.

Thanks, so much for the help. Unfortunately I don't have the computer available to me after the last post, but the next time I do see it I will repeat the steps and include your last suggestions. We can close this for now and I will repost when I start up again. Again thanks !!

Thanks for letting me know, we haven't finished just yet, just because symptoms have cleared doesn't mean your system is clean.
So I will leave the thread open a few days to see if you get back, other wise you will have to make a fresh post into the forum again.
regards dan :)

Due to lack of response this topic is now closed.

If you still need help open a new thread in the Malware Removal forum and wait for a new helper.

If you have been helped and wish to donate to help with the costs of this volunteer site, please read Donations For Malware Removal
