Hotmail contacts erased, dodgy msgs sent out!

Unread postby GGMan » September 3rd, 2008, 7:38 am

Hey
How is going now !
I got a good webiste ,that guys sell electronics,the price is cheap and quality is nice .
Go and check it :www.fugaotc.com


Hi guys, any help would be welcome, the above msg was sent to most but not all of my contacts and when my brother, who is in IT, received it he informed me it was probably a bug of some sort,I checked my email and saw that my entire Contacts list had been erased. I have scanned my computer with the free AVG, AD-Aware and Spybot programs but they turned nothing up. I immediately changed my hotmail password after discovering this.

I just wanted to know if this thing was a one off, or it is still on my computer somewhere, are there any actions I should take now and precautions in the future, once again any feedback would be appreciated, I have pasted the HiJackThis logfile below.
Thanks
GGMan

Re: Hotmail contacts erased, dodgy msgs sent out!

Unread postby silver » September 12th, 2008, 11:19 pm

Hi GGMan,

Good idea to change your Hotmail password, have you noticed any problems since this was done?
There is no malware showing in your log, that's a good sign but it doesn't guarantee your machine is clean. I recommend you do the following:

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

Download F-Secure Blacklight to your Desktop (right-click the link, select Save Target As..., select your Desktop and press Save)
  • Double click fsbl.exe to run it, choose I accept the agreement then press Scan
  • It will create the fsbl-xxxxxxx.log on your desktop containing a list of all items found.
  • Do not choose to rename any because legitimate items can also be present.
  • Exit Blacklight and post the contents of the log in your next reply.

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

Scan with ESET online scanner:
  • Open Internet Explorer by right-clicking the IE icon (on the Start menu or quick launch) and selecting Run as administrator
  • NOTE: Internet Explorer will temporarily have administrator privileges, this is required for the scan but dangerous for normal surfing so do NOT open any other websites in IE until after the scan has finished and this window has been closed.
  • Open the ESET Online Scanner in Internet Explorer
  • Tick the box next to YES, I accept the Terms of Use. and click Start
  • Allow the ActiveX control to be installed by Internet Explorer
  • Once the ActiveX has finished loading click Start to initialize and update the scanner
  • When the Computer scan screen appears, leave Remove found threats UN-checked, but check the box next to Scan unwanted applications. Then click Scan to begin the scan.
  • Once complete and the summary page appears, press Start, copy/paste the following command into the search box and press Enter:
    notepad "C:\Program Files\EsetOnlineScanner\log.txt"
  • The log file should now appear in Notepad, copy and paste the contents in your next response.
  • Please be sure to close this Internet Explorer window before continuing.

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

Download RSIT by random/random to your Desktop (right-click the link, select Save Target As..., select your Desktop and press Save)

  • Double click RSIT.exe to start the program, and click Continue at the disclaimer screen.
  • When the scan is complete, two text files will open - log.txt <- this one will be maximized and info.txt <-this one will be minimized
  • Make sure Format->Word Wrap is unchecked
  • Copy (Ctrl+A then Ctrl+C) and paste (Ctrl+V) the contents of log.txt and info.txt in your reply

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

Once complete, please post the Blacklight report, the Eset scan log and both RSIT logs, you won't need to produce a new HijackThis log as RSIT produces one for you.

Thank you very much for your help, I will follow your instructions out ASAP, which will be in the next week or so, as I work away from home, don't have acces to the net etc.
Thanks Again

Due to lack of activity, this topic is now closed.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Infected? Virus, malware, adware, ransomware, oh my! forum, include a fresh FRST log, and wait for a new helper.
