I enter a search phrase in Google (e.g. Cheese Making).
Within 0.2 seconds Google shows several thousand search results.
The first result has a URL of www. cheesemaking.co.uk, so I click on this.
What opens up is K-directory.co.uk, showing a list of ten sites each selling Will-Making services.
I hit the browser Back button to return to Google’s page of search results, then again click on www. cheesemaking .co.uk: this time the correct page opens – www. cheesemaking.co.uk.
If I click the arrow next to the browser’s (IE) Back button, the words Jump, and Redirect, are there.
The first click on a Google page of search results always results in an unwanted page opening that is not the page shown by Google – I have frequently had a page from The Free Dictionary by Farlex, half of which is a mixture of adverts for a diversity of products.
Installed on the computer is Norton Internet Security, which includes Norton Antivirus; Webroot Spysweeper; MIS TrojanHunter; and Microsoft Windows Defender. Running these programs has not removed the problem with Google.
As you can well imagine, if you can give me some hope and help to stop these unwanted advertising pages, I shall be very grateful.

Hi,

Welcome to Malware Removal.

I'm researching your log now and will get back to you in a moment.

Thank you for your patience. :)

Hi again,

I've some bad news for you. :(

One of the infections identified is a backdoor. It allows an attacker to steal Windows products licenses and popular games licenses.

It also allows an attacker to gain full access to your computer, thus there's also a risk of identity theft as well.

You are strongly advised to do the following:

  • Disconnect the computer from the Internet and from any networked computers until it is cleaned.
  • Back up all your important data except programs. The programs can be reinstalled back from the original disc or from the Net.
  • Call all your banks, financial institutions, credit card companies and inform them that you may be a victim of identity theft and put a watch on your accounts. If you don't mind the hassle, change all your account numbers.
  • From a clean computer, change all your passwords (ISP login password, your email address(es) passwords, financial accounts, PayPal, eBay, Amazon, online groups and forums and any other online activities you carry out which require a username and password).

Do NOT change your passwords from this computer as the attacker will be able to get all the new passwords and transaction records.

Due to its backdoor functionality, your computer is very likely to have been compromised and there is no way that it can be trusted again. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of Trojan, the best course of action would be to do a reformat and reinstallation of the operating system (OS). However, if you do not have the resources to reinstall your OS and would like me to attempt to clean your machine, I will be happy to do so.

To help you understand more, please take some time to read the following articles:

How do I respond to a possible identity theft and how do I prevent it
When should do a reformat and reinstallation of my OS
Where to backup your files
How to backup your files in Windows XP
Restoring your backups

Please let me know your decision.

Hi,
I have a Norton Ghost Backup of C:, on which is my operating system. Plus a separate Ghost backup of my data which is on drive D:.

The C: backup was made two weeks ago. Is it a good idea to use Ghost to restore C:, and see if the infection is no longer present?

I suggest not. 2 weeks ago you could have already been infected. Backdoor infections don't use much system resources so you can't tell if you were infected. The only way to notice that is through a firewall, when a program makes outgoing communications. That's only if the firewall isn't shut down by the backdoor.

You should also preferably Ghost your hard drive right after you have installed all updates and programs needed. That way, it would ensure that the Ghost backup is a clean copy.

Hello,

I found a Ghost image of my C: (on which is the operating system) that was dated four months earlier, when the computer seemed to be clear of any malware. So I have restored this Ghost image of four months ago, and done most of the subsequent software updating.

I am providing a fresh HijackThis log, should you be kind enough to see whether or not it looks clean; the problem I had with Google search results, mentioned in my original post, has now gone.

Best wishes,

Anode.

4 months ago, your computer isn't clean either. Those entries are bad.

Here's a description of what it does - http://www.trendmicro.com/vinfo/virusen ... CC&VSect=T

I suggest you reformat and re-install Windows instead. If you choose not to, I will try my best to help you out.

Hello,

Right.
I shall do as you suggest and have a go at reinstalling WindowsXP and all my programs.
It may be the weekend before I can start, then it will take several days; I shall report back to you when it is completed.
Thank you for your continuing help, without which I should not have known I had an infected computer.

Best wishes

Anode.

Hello,

A point has arisen about which I should like your advice, please.

I wonder how you would like me to deal with the infected Ghost images.
My computer has hard disc 0, and hard disk 1. Hard disk 0 is partitioned into C and D. The operating system is on C, and data is on D.
Hard disk 1 is partitioned into K and L. On K are Ghost images of C. On L are Ghost images of D (data).

As you have discovered for me, the Ghost images of C that are stored on K are infected. Would it be sufficient to go into Ghost and select ‘Delete’ to get rid of these infected images? Or is something else wanted? Would using a 'file shredder' that overwrites the Ghost images several times be satisfactory?

Kind regards,

Anode.

Yes.

Are the files on Drive D just data? No other programs are installed?

D is data only, no programs.

Okie. Then reformatting and re-installing on C drive will be OK. Just don't delete the partitions during installing or you will wipe out everything.

Hello,
I am in great trouble with my computer at the moment. It turns out that although the computer manufacturer repeatedly told me before purchase he supplied a full Microsoft WindowsXP installation disk, in fact when I now come to run this disk it is some kind of a restore disk.

I thought I would try running it to see if it would overwrite any malware; but what it did was to add a second Windows folder, this time to the second HDD. So I disconnected the second HDD, and ran the recovery disk again on the first HDD. This time it added another Windows folder to another partition on the first HDD – there is no choice of where you want it to install, and I am left with three Windows folders, which will not delete because they are system folders.

The above is just to indicate I have some problems to be going on with. I do not know yet what the solution is going to be.

With regard to my backdoor infection, I notice that one sign of it is the dropping of files called ms.exe in specified specific registry keys. If an ms.exe file is in other registry keys than those specified, is this also bad? I ask because my Hijack log shows ms.exe files in two registry keys, but not the keys specified in the item you gave me a reference to.

At one point, after running my Windows recovery disk, a search of my registry produced no ms.exe entries. But a later search showed the two ms.exe entries to be back again, and all I was aware that had happened in the meantime was that I had downloaded some Windows updates from the Microsoft web site.

I ask my question because as I am doing whatever it is I am going to do, to get my computer back into a useable condition, I could monitor whether a bad ms.exe was present or not.

I am going to get this sorted, but I have explained why it is going to take some time.

I am sending another log; I should be interested to know if you think things are any better, or worse, or just the same.

Regards

Anode.

Hi,

Is this log taken before or after you ran the Restore Disc?

With regard to my backdoor infection, I notice that one sign of it is the dropping of files called ms.exe in specified specific registry keys. If an ms.exe file is in other registry keys than those specified, is this also bad?


ms.exe is not a Microsoft file, wherever it's dropped and wherever it's found in the Registry, it's bad.

After running the restore disk.

And thank you for the information about ms.exe, which I see is still present.
