Vundo trouble

Unread postby Shorty_sx » August 31st, 2008, 11:34 am

Hello!

Well, I've recently been using my uncle's computer which was recently attacked by a vundo trojan. As I tried dealing with it, and installed a few things that were missing before and Windows Defender 'accidently' stumbled upon an Rbot.

Anyway, although I think* I got rid of the vundo dlls and the rbot was supposedly removed, (computer's running at a decent speed) the pc seems to be having trouble opening flash drives and external hard drives. When the Vundo first appeared my external hd was connected (no idea if any of the malware could affect it), but ever since flash drives would not open and same goes for my external hd. For example, if I just enter a folder containing a movie (which worked fine before) I get a 'Data Execution Prevention' for windows explorer (codecs and everything needed for the files is installed) and crash, sometimes even needing a reboot.

Help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Shorty_sx,

I don't see a lot in your log. Lets get a quick Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware log and see what kind of nasties it finds.

Before we begin, I need to stress some important points to you.
  • Some of the instructions I will provide may get quite long. I highly recommend that you print a copy of them off or copy them into Notepad.
  • If at any time you have questions, please DON'T hesitate to ask!
  • Please keep in mind that the instructions I give are specific to your current problem and should not be used on other systems.
  • Also, please remember that there may be multiple issues with your system, please continue to follow this thread until I have given you an "All Clean!"

Ready? Lets go....

*==============================================*

Step #1: Remove malware lines using Hijack This

Place a checkmark in the boxes to the left of the following entries by clicking on them:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Alcmtr] ALCMTR.EXE

CLOSE ALL OPEN WINDOWS AND BROWSERS - EXCEPT HIJACKTHIS and click on "Fix Checked".

Once complete, please exit HiJackThis.

*==============================================*

Step #2: Download and Run 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
    • 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\<your username>\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\Logs\mbam-log-date (time).txt


*===============================================*

Step #3: Things to put in your next reply

Please post the following in your next reply:

Thanks,
Ken

Re: Vundo trouble

Hey Ken :)

Congratz on your graduation by the way, noticed the color change! Right well I fixed the point in HJT, ran Anti-Malware and you can see the logs below. As you can see Anti-Mal. found some remains from the Vundo, however did not fix the problem (or main/only visible problem I have at the moment) - my external hd is still having problems. To help with this, let me explain the whole problem in detail.

If I open (or just open the folder of) any movie file (more or less the only files I have on my hd), I get the following msgs and results:

-Data Execution Prevention - Microsoft Windows
-Name: Windows Explorer
-Mircrosoft Corporation

----------------------> I press "Close Message" and:

-Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry ...
-Error Report: EventType : BEX P1 : explorer.exe P2 : 6.0.2900.3156 P3 : 466fd448
P4 : unknown P5 : 0.0.0.0 P6 : 00000000 P7 : 00000000
P8 : c0000005 P9 : 00000008

-"The following files will be included in this error report:"
-C:\DOCUME~1\homeuser\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER85f0.dir00\explorer.exe.mdmp
C:\DOCUME~1\homeuser\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER85f0.dir00\appcompat.txt


Following that I usually have to spend 5 min in a very slow task manager to end task the opened folder, or quit explorer.exe all together and start it again. I know the things i added above are mainly compressed files to be sent to microsoft, but I'm trying to provide any info possible.

Hi Shorty,

Thank you.. :)

Unfortunately, I am still not seeing much that might lend a better idea of what's going on. Malwarebytes' did find a couple of things, however I don't see how those could be related to the explorer.exe issue. I did a little Google searching, and did find a couple of examples where bad or incorrect video codecs were to blame. Lets make sure no other malware is hiding, and then I will be happy to refer you to a General Troubleshooting forum were they might be able to help you a little better. Please do the following:

Step #1: Run Kaspersky Online Scan

Please go to Kaspersky website to perform an online antivirus scan.
  • Read through the requirements and privacy statement and click on Accept button.
  • It will start downloading and installing the scanner and virus definitions. You will be prompted to install an application from Kaspersky. Click Run.
  • When the downloads have finished, click on Settings.
  • Make sure these boxes are checked (ticked). If they are not, please tick them and click on the Save button:
    • Spyware, Adware, Dialers, and other potentially dangerous programs
    • Archives
    • Mail databases
  • Click on My Computer under Scan.
  • Once the scan is complete, it will display the results. Click on View Scan Report.
  • You will see a list of infected items there. Click on Save Report As....
  • Save this report to your desktop by changing the Files of type to Text file (.txt) before clicking on the Save button.
  • Now close the window.

*===============================================*

Step #2: Things to put in your next reply

Please post the following in your next reply:
  • A New Hijack This Log
  • Contents of the Kaspersky Online Scan Log

Thanks,
Ken

Good news!

I figured out what was the problem with my external hd and other flash drives! Those explorer crashing errors do occur when you lack the proper video codecs, but as I stated in my first post I had them all properly installed. However, now that you mentioned them I realized 'who says the trojan didnt mess them up somehow?'. So I uninstalled all the codecs, reinstalled them and walaa! Works fine!

As for the other scans here you go:

Hi Shorty,

Great! I am glad that you got that problem sorted.....

Congratulations, Your log appears to be clean! Image

How is your system running? Are you still having problems? Please let me know if any problems still exist before moving on.

Kaspersky found a bunch of stuff that has been quarantined. It found nasties in both the Eset (Nod32) Infected folder and also in the back-up Symantec Quarantine folder. It would be a good idea to go ahead and empty both of those Quarantines so you get get rid of those once and for all. Otherwise the Kaspersky log looks good.

Now that you are clean, I got some tips & tricks for you to keep your computer clean and secure. The first few (like Windows Update) have to be done, the others are optional.

It may seem like your system will be too much protected with all these things installed, but a lot of programs aren't running always on the background so don't slow down your computer. Please take a look at the following things:

Create a new, clean System Restore point which you can use in case of future system problems:
Press Start->All Programs->Accessories->System Tools->System Restore
Select Create a restore point, then Next, type a name like All Clean then press the Create button and once it's done press Close

Now remove old, infected System Restore points:
Next click Start->Run and type cleanmgr in the box and press OK
Ensure the boxes for Recycle Bin, Temporary Files and Temporary Internet Files are checked, you can choose to check other boxes if you wish but they are not required.
Select the More Options tab, under System Restore press Clean up... and say Yes to the prompt
Press OK and Yes to confirm

Update your Anti Virus Software - I would highly recommend that you set your Anti-Virus software to update automatically. Most Anti-Virus programs will update at least once a day, and frequently more than once a day. If you notice that it isn't updating itself regularly and frequently, you should check to make sure your anti-virus subscription has not expired (if it's a paid subscription) or that your settings have not spontaneously changed.

Turn on "Automatic Updates" - In order to make sure your system stays up to date, I recommend that you turn on the "Automatic Updates" feature. To turn on the "Automatic Updates" feature please do the following:
  • Click Start and choose Control Panel
  • In the control panel double click "Automatic Updates"
  • Make sure "Automatic (recommended)" is ticked
  • set the time that you would like to check for updates
  • Click "OK"

Install WinPatrol - As a robust security monitor, WinPatrol will alert you to hijackings, malware attacks and critical changes made to your computer without your permission. WinPatrol takes snapshot of your critical system resources and alerts you to any changes that may occur without your knowledge. You can download it from this website:
WinPatrol
The developer is a well-known man in the MalWare Removal business. If you really like WinPatrol think about upgrading to the PLUS version. It will give you additional features and you will only have to pay once, for your whole malware-free life.

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.

Download BlueTack's HOSTS Manager here, using Internet Explorer (Firefox won't work):
http://www.bluetack.co.uk/forums/index. ... ils&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 right click/delete the other Hosts Switch icon from your desktop).
When the Hosts Manager comes up, click the small down arrows on the Right side of the bar labeled "Options and Tools",
Click Disable DNS Service. This is important
In the Left Pane, click Download.
It will load 80,000 lines or more. When it finishes, also in the left pane, click Replace, and then click Save.
You can use this manager to handle your HOSTS file download, edits, and most any other HOSTS issue.

If you have a separate third party Firewall or Winpatrol, you may have to give permissions at various times to Unlock the present default HOSTS file and install the new one.

Use an alternative Internet Browser - Many of the exploits are directed to users of Internet Explorer. Try using a different browser instead:
Firefox << Most used, I use this one myself.
Opera

Bookmark general cleanup links - It could be that your computer is becoming slower and slower. This is not always the cause of malware. Most of the times it's malware when you're computer is suddenly getting slow or doing strange. When the slowdown increases slowly check (so now bookmark) these links for tips & tricks:
Help! My computer is slow
Slow Computer? Check here first; it may not be malware

Update all these programs regularly - Make sure you update all the programs I have listed regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.
Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.

Stand Up and Be Counted!
Please take the time to tell us what you would like to be done about the people who are behind all the problems you have had. We can only get something done about this if the people that we help, like you, are prepared to complain. We have a dedicated forum for collecting these complaints called Malware Complaints. Please register there first!

Have a happy computing day!!
