Web Technologies Malware - Try Again

Unread postby st00rmy2006 » July 30th, 2008, 6:10 pm

This is a follow-up to an earlier topic, "Web Technologies Malware", link as follows:

http://malwareremoval.com/forum/viewtop ... a&start=15

My apologies for not following-up sooner. I was out of town. I will continue as if I were responding to the earlier instructions (I didn't notice that the topic was closed until after I had followed the instructions anyway to the point of starting the Kaspersky scan. I've done the scans and gotten logs.

NOTE: I also started a new topic, also "Web Technologies Malware", but replied to my own first post, thereby breaking formum rules (ouch!) So I'm trying again.

Kaspersky report is attached and latest HiJackThis log follows:

Welcome to the Malware removal Forums. Since it has been a few days, please post a new HijackThis Log. Thank you for your patience.

If you have already posted this log at another forum or if you decide to seek help at another forum, please let us know. There is a shortage of helpers and taking the time of two volunteer helpers means that someone else may not be helped.

A few things you may do prior to cleaning:
  1. Backup any important data first!!
  2. There are several online backup storage websites available. Some require a fee; some offer free backup storage.
  3. Review the instructions on starting your computer in Safe Mode. (without networking support !). If you don’t know how to boot in Safe Mode, use this tutorial, How To Start Windows in Safe Mode.
  4. Review the instructions on configuring Windows Explorer to Show All Hidden Files and Folders.
  5. Perform all actions in the order given.
  6. If you are unsure of any procedure, stop and ask!
  7. Please reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.
  8. Complete all the steps. ABSENCE OF SYMPTOMS DOES NOT ALWAYS MEAN A CLEAN COMPUTER!!
During the cleaning process, if any other issues appear, please let us know. Please do not make any changes on your computer during the cleaning process or download and add programs on your computer unless instructed to do so. Thanks.

Re: Web Technologies Malware - Try Again

Unread postby suebaby41 » August 10th, 2008, 3:12 pm

I did not see any obvious signs of malware. I have a few suggestions for general cleaning.

You may want to print this page. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding.

Step 1

I noticed that you "Adobe Reader" is out of date.
You may want to download the latest version, Adobe® Reader® 9.

Step 2

In normal mode, run an online antivirus check from at least two and preferably three of the following sites
BitDefender
Computer Associates Online Virus Scan
Panda's ActiveScan
Trend Micro Housecall
Windows Live Safety Center Free Online Scan
This scanner from Trend does not require an Active X to run.
  1. Detects and removes malware ( viruses, worms, trojans, etc. )
  2. Detects and removes grayware and spyware
  3. Restores damage caused by malware to your system.
  4. Notifies about vulnerabilities in installed programs and connected network services.
  5. Multi-platform support for: Windows, Linux, Solaris.
  6. Easy-to-use with the Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.
When you have completed the scans, if you get a report of files that can’t be cleaned / deleted, make a note of the file location of anything that cannot be deleted so you can delete it yourself. Please post that list in your next reply.

Step 3

Please download Spybot-S&D.
Please check this link, Using Spybot- Search and Destroy To Remove Spyware From Your Computer, for instructions on how to download, install and use Spybot-S&D. Run this program as soon as possible.

Step 4

Please download Ad-Aware 2008.
Please check this link, Ad-Aware 2007/ 2008 for instructions on how to download, install and use Ad-Aware. Run this program as soon as possible.

Step 5

I recommend using Spyware Blaster.
Please download SpywareBlaster. SpywareBlaster helps to:
  1. Prevent the installation of Active X-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted software.
  2. Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.
  3. Restrict the actions of potentially unwanted sites in Internet Explorer.
Please see Using SpywareBlaster to protect your computer from Spyware, Hijackers, and Malware for instructions on how to download, install, and use SpywareBlaster.

Step 6

Windows Defender is a free program that helps protect your computer against pop-ups, slow performance, and security threats caused by spyware and other unwanted software. It features Real-Time Protection, a monitoring system that recommends actions against spyware when it is detected and minimizes interruptions and helps you stay productive.

Please download and install Windows Defender.
  1. Confirm that your computer meets the minimum system requirements to install Windows Defender.
  2. Visit the Windows Defender page in the Microsoft Download Center. Click the Continue button and follow the directions on the succeeding pages to download the program and start the Installation Wizard.
  3. Follow the steps in the Installation Wizard. You will be asked if you want to participate in the Microsoft SpyNet online community. We suggest you choose the first option,
  4. Use recommended settings.
  5. Click Next to continue.
  6. Click Install to begin installing Windows Defender.
  7. When installation is complete, click Finish. Windows Defender will begin to scan your computer.
  8. For more information, See How to install and set up Windows Defender
Step 7

The ATF-Cleaner program is for XP and Windows 2000 only.
ATF-Cleaner features include:
  • Cleaning of all user temp folders, administrator only can use this feature.
  • Cleaning of the Java cache, which seems to be harboring more and more malware.
  • Cleaning the cache, cookies, history, download history, visited links and saved passwords. You have the option of checking no if you want to save your passwords.
Please download the ATF-Cleaner by Atribune.
Instructions:
  • Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
  • Check the boxes to the left of:
    • Windows Temp
    • Current User Temp
    • All Users Temp
    • Temporary Internet Files
    • Prefetch (Windows XP) only
    • Java Cache
  • The rest are optional - if you want to remove them all, check Select All.
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
  • When you get the Done Cleaning message, click OK.
If you use the Firefox browser:
  • Click Firefox at the top and choose: Select All.
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
  • When you get the Done Cleaning message, click OK.
  • NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
If you use the Opera browser:
  • Click Opera at the top and choose: Select All.
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
  • When you get the Done Cleaning message, click OK.
  • NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.
If needed, Tutorial on ATF Cleaner with pictures.
Do not run it yet.

Step 8

Optional Fixes is the name that we use for fixes for unnecessary programs that load during startup and run in the background. These programs are not required to start automatically as you can start them manually if you need them. You would be removing the program from your startup but you would not be removing the program itself.

Your computer may be sluggish due to the many programs loading during startup and running in the background that are not necessary. Windows has a facility for starting programs at startup time. Some of these programs are required for your computer and the applications installed on it to run correctly. A good example of such a program is a virus-checking application that must always run, constantly checking for and isolating or removing files with viruses. Other such programs are not strictly required, or are optional. In some cases, you can gain significant performance enhancements by disabling the automatic startup of these programs. In many cases, the functionality offered by the programs is still available by starting the programs manually by, for example, starting the program from the Windows Start->Programs menu. Media players and instant messaging programs often fall into this category. In fact, it is common for many modern software applications, when installed, to add programs at startup that add items to the system tray or shortcut (context) menus in Windows Explorer to provide quick access to the features and functions of these applications. While they may be useful, they do increase boot time and consume system resources. It is advised that you disable these programs so that they do not take up necessary resources or slow the boot time.

Other than ScanRegistry, SystemTray, StateMgr, antivirus program entries, and firewall program entries, very few others need to load and run.

Step 10

Please run HijackThis in Normal Mode and post a new HijackThis log.

Please post the list of file names and locations for any files that can’t be cleaned / deleted that were reported after you completed the online scans.

Please advise me of any problems you still have.

I haven't been ignoring the instructions. The scans take a long time to run and I've had some difficulties.
Step 1, Updating Adobe Reader was easy.
Per Step 2, I ran BitDefender. I have attached the log file which it saved as an html file. I'm not sure if there are malware issues or not. The log indicates that several Java files could not be updated. That may relate to some difficulties I had with the Trend Scanner.

I was not able to make the Trend Scanner run as a Java program under Firefox. I was able to get it to run almost to completion as an Active-X under Internet Explorer. I say "almost" because it found and was able to delete 13 http cookies, and also found a file which it described as "Spyware_gator.f", though the actual file name was "C:\old c drive data\My Download Files\DivXProAdware.exe". It apparently hung while trying to delete it. (At least it was still running 12 hours after the "clean" process had started, but the file is still there. I closed the Trend application.) I have not attempted to delete the file manually.

Please advise. Thanks in advance!

Skip the online scans that you have trouble running. I have heard that there have been some problems with The Trend Micro Scan.

Step 1

I was not able to make the Trend Scanner run as a Java program under Firefox. I was able to get it to run almost to completion as an Active-X under Internet Explorer. I say "almost" because it found and was able to delete 13 http cookies, and also found a file which it described as "Spyware_gator.f", though the actual file name was "C:\old c drive data\My Download Files\DivXProAdware.exe". It apparently hung while trying to delete it. (At least it was still running 12 hours after the "clean" process had started, but the file is still there. I closed the Trend application.) I have not attempted to delete the file manually.


C:\old c drive data\My Download Files\DivXProAdware.exe What is old c drive data?

Step 2

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware is FREEWARE, however you may upgrade to the PRO version which contains realtime protection, scheduled scanning and updating.

  1. Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (MBAM). Alternate download link
  2. Double-click on Download_mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  3. When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  4. When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  5. Click Finish.
  6. MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing scan. If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself.
  7. Press the OK button to close that box and continue. If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from the Malware Bytes Web site. Scroll down the page until you see Latest Database; click Download from GT500.org
  8. Double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  9. On the Scanner tab, make sure the Perform Quick Scan option is selected.
  10. Click on the Scan button.
  11. If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  12. The scan will begin and Scan in progress will show at the top. It may take some time to complete; please be patient.
  13. When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully.
  14. At the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  15. Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  16. When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to restart your computer. (see Note below)
  17. The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  18. Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
  19. Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts. Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.
Is the file still there?

C:\old c drive data\My Download Files\DivXProAdware.exe What is old c drive data?

The answer to you question is that "old c drive data" is just a directory. A long time ago, I had a disk drive which was partitioned into several logical drives. One was C and one was D. When I put in a larger disk (and had Windows completely re-installed), I kept various files (including, I see, old junk!) from the former C and D drives in directories called ... you guessed it!

I just noticed that the directory was flagged as "read only", which may have contributed the problem Trend had deleting the file in question. I have changed the property and would be glad to try to delete the questionable file or even the entire directory before proceeding if you think that is wise. I don't have time to start the MBAM process right now, but I will do so tonight or tomorrow morning. I won't attempt a manual file delete as described above before scanning unless I hear from you in the meantime. BTW, I have been disabling my Windows Defender and McAfee on-access scans while running the other scans. I presume I should continue to do so.

Thanks again!

Good job! Deleting your "old c drive data" is strictly up to you. I suggest that you wait until you have finished the MalwareBytes scan before we try to manually delete anything.

Make sure you are NOT on the Internet when you disable the McAfee on access scans. That is your antivirus program and you should never get online without it being active.

Suebaby-

I ran the MalwareBytes program successfully (using the Quckscan option as directed) It found and successfully cleaned/deleted them (log file below). It did not notice the divXProAdware.exe file, so I went ahead and manually deleted that file without any apparent problem.

Let me know if I should proceed with your earlier instructions regarding SpyBot, Ad-Aware, etc.

Good job!

Ad-Aware and Spybot Search and Destroy are two good programs to use to scan your computer for spyware. It is your decision whether you use them or not. I recommend both programs.

Please post a new HijackThis log and post your HijackThis log as a reply to this thread and not as an attachment. I am always leery of opening attachments so I always request that HijackThis logs are to be posted as a reply to the thread. I don't think that you are attaching anything scary but others may do so. Thanks.

BTW, the Yellow Shield Symbol in the icon set in the lower right corner of my display is prompting me to install updates. I think it is legit microsoft stuff -- either a Service Pack or Defender update, but how can I be sure? As usual, thanks!

The Microsoft Windows updates are legitimate. If you want more control over the updates, you can change the setting to "Download updates, but let me choose when to install them". Click Start > Control Panel > Automatic Updates.

Another alternative would be to turn off Automatic Updates. If you turn off Automatic Updates, you can control what is downloaded and installed. It would be very important that you visit Microsoft Windows Update regularly to ensure your computer has the latest security updates available installed on your computer. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.

You still have many programs loading during startup and running in the background that are not necessary. Remember you would be removing the program from your startup but you would not be removing the program itself. ]Other than that your log looks good. How is your computer behaving now?

The computer is not displaying any obvious malware problems. I downloaded the spybot and ad-aware programs anyway and will run them shortly. Can you tell me how to stop some of the programs (photoshop, etc.) that load at startup?
