Gamefly audio pop ups- 1st Hijackthis log posted for help

Unread postby magerac » January 24th, 2009, 1:25 am

Hi,

Its been years since Ive had any malware problems but got this sucker last night. Malewarebytes removed the "Security System" fake alert pop up virus, but left stupid 'gamefly' random audio pop ups behind. By random luck on google I was able to find a thread on your forum that sounded exactly like what I had, just recently, and scanned through the procedures taken to fix it. I know you have more talent at diagnosing the treating these problems than I, so I reach out for your guidance tonight, thanks so much for your honorable work. - Mark

Hello magerac, welcome to MWR
Please take note of the following before we begin the cleaning process:
  • The whole process will usually take at least a week complete, sometimes several weeks depending on the severity of the infection and how promptly you and me are able to reply, so please stay patient
  • Hang in there until I give you the 'All clean'. If you leave prematurely because your computer seems to be back to its old self, the risk of re-infection will be very high
  • Perform all actions in the order given
  • The instructions I give expect that you're using an account with administrator privileges and that the language of your operating system is English.
  • Dont be afraid to ask questions if something is unclear or you run into issues during cleaning steps
  • I recommend you read through each set of instructions before you actually perform them

Create an uninstall list
  • Launch Hijackthis
  • Click the Open the Misc Tools section button
  • Click the Open Uninstall Manager button.
  • Click the Save list button.
  • Include this log in your next reply

Have you run any removal tools other than Malwarebytes Anti-Malware to try and solve this issue?
While you work with me to get this taken care of I need to ask that you dont run any more scans on your own, as this more often than not will be counter productive.

Hi Sharagoz, nice to see you!

Ive busted a few nasty spyware apps in my day, but have had no problems in years. then I got this current sucker, i did some reading and took steps on my own to fix it last night. mbab was able to delete the 'security system' fake popups, then I was getting some random gamefly commercial audio pop ups here and there. computer seems to run ok,but when infected it ran slow and the HD seemed be thinking too much.

Here is the thread I studied - viewtopic.php?f=12&t=38400

I used Ad-aware and my Mcaffe virus scan last night but came up with nothing. After reading through the above link I used OTmoveit to get a scan, and noticed those weird window/tasks/atp1.job files and also found the rogue app entry in window/system32. I used the cut and paste of some previous instructions and used otmoveit3 to run the commands and delete all those suspicious files that got installed at the same point (all .job and the .exe). I believe they were shredded last night after reboot as my comp seems to be ok today. I did the cleanup and deleted the programs and old log files. Here is my recent Hijackthis and uninstall list, let me know if you see anything else in there that shouldnt be. Thanks for the help dude

P2P warning
You have BitComet installed on your computer. This is a peer-to-peer program used to share files between computers.
There are several issues related to this:
  • P2P programs are notorious for being bundled with unwanted adware/spyware programs
  • Poorly configured P2P programs can share more files than you want them too, including personal files
  • Since its impossible to establish the source of which you are copying files from, you will always be at a certan risk every time you download a file. Malware written to spesifically spread through P2P networks are becoming an increasing problem and may be the source of your current infection. Even if you can trust the P2P program itself, you can never trust the sources you download from.

By MWR policy I am forced to ask that you uninstall this program if you wish me to further help you with your malware issues.
For more info, read MWR policy on P2P programs

To uninstall the program, go to Add/Remove Programs and uninstall the following:
BitComet 1.07

If you have uninstalled BitComet and wish to proceed, do the below:

Download and run DDS by sUBs
  • Download DDS from one of the links below and save it to your desktop
    Link1 | Link2 | Link3
  • Right-click on the file and chose Run as administrator to run the tool
  • A black window will stay open while the tool runs
  • Wait for the scan to finish (this will only take a couple of minutes), and two logs to open in notepad
  • Include both these logs in your next reply

Since you ran MBAM before, you should have one or more logs from those scans located here:
C:\Users\<your username>\AppData\Roaming\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\Logs
(You'll have to enable the viewing of hidden folders to see the "AppData" folder)

Post back both of the DDS logs as well as the MBAM log(s)

Your logs are looking pretty good, but there are still a few things that must be taken care of.
I have prepared a fix for you and posted it for approval. As I am only an undergrad at this uni I need to have all my fixed approved by a teacher before they can be posted.
At the top left corner of your opening post there's a link "Subscribe topic". If you click this you will be subscriped to this thread and will receive instant email notification of new replies. For most this works better than periodically checking back for new posts.
Expect me to be back in 48hrs or so.

Windows defender and Ad-Aware needs to be temporarily disabled so that they dont interfere with the fix.

Disable Windows Defender
Open Windows Defender (Start->Control Panel->Security->Windows defender)
Select Tools and then General Settings
Scroll down, and under Real Time Protection Options uncheck Turn on real-time protection
Select Save

Temporarily disable Ad-Aware Ad-Watch
Right click on the Ad-Watch icon in the system tray
At the bottom of the screen, uncheck both Active... and Automatic...

1) Fix bad entries using HiJackThis
  • Launch HiJackThis
  • Click the Do a system scan only button
  • Put a checkmark next to the below lines if they are listed
    O4 - HKUS\S-1-5-18\..\Run: [Cognac] C:\Windows\TEMP\707D.tmp.exe (User 'SYSTEM')
    O4 - HKUS\.DEFAULT\..\Run: [Cognac] C:\Windows\TEMP\707D.tmp.exe (User 'Default user')
  • Click the Fix checked button and close HiJackThis

Restart your computer after this step

2) Delete files
  • Delete these files:
    c:\users\marko\appdata\roaming\mozilla\firefox\profiles\8yb6xm4o.default\extensions\{b042753d-f57e-4e8e-a01b-7379a6d4cefb}\components\IBitCometExtension.dll
    C:\Windows\TEMP\707D.tmp.exe (may not exist anymore)
  • Delete this folder:
    c:\program files\BitComet

3) Emptying trusted zone
You seem to have a couple of sites in Internet Explorers trusted zone:
firsthorizon.com\banking
umonitor.com\www

Having a site in your trusted zone means that every time you visit that site, it has complete access to your computer.
This is not recommended unless it's absolutly necessary, and you trust the site.
If you'd like to remove one or both of these from the trusted zone, do the following:
  • Press the windows key and the R key at the same time to open the Run dialog box
  • Type inetcpl.cpl and press Enter
  • Select the Security tab
  • Select Trusted sites and press the Sites button
  • Select the site(s) you'd like to remove and click the Remove button

4) Download and run SUPERAntiSpyware
  • Download SAS from here (use the link 'from authors site'), and install the program using default settings
  • When prompted about installing updates, click Yes
  • You can skip email registration and homepage protection
  • The program should auto-start after the installation. If it doesnt, there's will be a shortcut on your desktop that you can use to launch it manually
  • In the main window click Preferences to launch the configuration window
  • Under the General and Startup tab uncheck Start SUPERAntiSpyware when windows starts
  • Under the Scanning Control tab, uncheck everything except:
    o Ignore System Restore/Volume Information on ME/XP
    o Close browsers before scanning
    o Scan for tracking cookies
    o Terminate memory threats before quarantining
    o Scan alternate data streams
  • Click the Close button and return to the main window
  • Click the Scan your Computer button
  • Select Perform complete scan, make sure the necessary drives are selected, and click the Next button
  • After the scan is complete, a Scan Summary box will appear with potentially harmful items that were detected. Click OK
  • Make sure everything has a checkmark next to it and click Next
  • A notification will appear saying Quarantine and Removal is Complete.
    (if you are prompted about rebooting the machine to finish the removal, let SAS do so)
  • Now we need to retrieve the log
  • In the main window, Click Preferences, then click the Statistics/Logs tab
  • Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log
  • If there are several logs, click the current dated log and press View log. A text file will open in your default text editor
  • Include this log in your next post

You can now enable Windows Defender and Ad-Watch again, using similar steps as when you disabled them

4) Get a new HiJackThis log
  • Launch Hijackthis
  • Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button
  • HJT will run a scan and a log will open in Notepad
  • Include this log in your next reply

Logs I need:
SAS log
New HJT log

How is the computer behaving? Any more malware issues?

You are right, there are still a couple of entries left.

Disable Windows Defender and Ad-Aware like you did last time before the next step

Fix bad entries using HiJackThis
  • Right-click on HiJackThis.exe and chose Run as administrator to launch HJT
  • Click the Do a system scan only button
  • Put a checkmark next to the below lines if they are listed

    O4 - HKUS\S-1-5-18\..\Run: [Cognac] C:\Windows\TEMP\707D.tmp.exe (User 'SYSTEM')
    O4 - HKUS\.DEFAULT\..\Run: [Cognac] C:\Windows\TEMP\707D.tmp.exe (User 'Default user')
    O8 - Extra context menu item: &D&ownload &with BitComet - res://C:\Program Files\BitComet\BitComet.exe/AddLink.htm
    O8 - Extra context menu item: &D&ownload all video with BitComet - res://C:\Program Files\BitComet\BitComet.exe/AddVideo.htm
    O8 - Extra context menu item: &D&ownload all with BitComet - res://C:\Program Files\BitComet\BitComet.exe/AddAllLink.htm
    O9 - Extra button: BitComet - {D18A0B52-D63C-4ed0-AFC6-C1E3DC1AF43A} - res://C:\Program Files\BitComet\tools\BitCometBHO_1.2.8.7.dll/206 (file missing)

  • IMPORTANT: Do NOT click fix until you exit all browser sessions including the one you are reading in right now
  • Click the Fix checked button and close HiJackThis

Restart your computer after this step

Enable Windows Defender and Ad-Aware again.

Get a new HJT log and post it here.

huh. i ran this scan again just for giggles, and I don't see any of the offenders in the log. also, the log i posted just prior to this was dated incorrectly, that was not the log I had actually run today, as today is the 27th. this log I just made. sorry about the confusion. maybe we killed this rat s.o.b! computer shows no symptoms of any problems any longer, but I really dont want any rogue crap left over.

Unread postby Sharagoz » January 28th, 2009, 8:01 am

Your logs are now clean.
Unless you have discovered new problems its time to do the final steps.

Cleaning up after the removal procedures
  • 1) Uninstall through Add/Remove Programs
    • Locate and uninstall the below program unless you want to keep it for future usage:
      SUPERAntiSpyware
  • 2) Flush system restore
    This is to prevent you from getting reinfected should you ever need to do a system restore
    • Click the start button, right-click on Computer and chose Properties
    • Select the System Protection tab
    • After a few seconds your hard drives will appear. Remove the checkmark next to the system drive.
      (System drive will ususally have a name similar to this: Local Disk (C:) (System) )
    • Click OK and then restart your computer
    • After the computer has restarted, find the System Protection tab again the same way you did before
    • Add a checkmark next to the system drive and press OK
    • System Restore will now be enabled again, and a new restore point will be created
  • 3) Other deletions
    • DDS (on your desktop)
    • Delete any other logs that remain on your desktop.

You can now enable Windows Defender again, using a similar procedure as when you disabled it at the beginning of this post.

2) Taking measures to prevent your computer from being infected again
    Now that your computer is free from malware you may want to know how you can prevent this from happening again.
    Below I'm quoting a tutorial I've written which I post to everybody I help here at MWR.
    It covers the key parts of the software side of computer security. What steps you take or dont take to increase your own computers security is of course up to you.
    The tutorial will take a little while to get through, but I hope you find it to be worth your time.
    If you have any questions beyond this, feel free to ask.

    How to protect yourself from malware
    Over the last few years there has been a dramatic increase in the number of infected computers online.
    If everybody using the internet knew what Im about to go through, this number would be significantly reduced.
    I dont have all the answers, and I cant go through every detail if the size of the tutorial is to be kept fairly short, but I'll do my best to explain the most important parts.

  • 1) Keeping your operating system up to date (windows updates)
    This is the most important security measure. With an unpatched operating system you will be defenseless even with top-notch security software.
    Malware often exploit security holes in your operating system to install itself, and keeping your OS up to date at all times will make sure this risk is at a minimum.
    Visit http://update.microsoft.com/ using Internet Explorer, and get all critical updates.
    You may have to repeat the update procedure several times before you get all updates. Repeat it until there are no more critical updates showing as missing.
    Also, I recommend you turn on automatic updates if you havent already.

  • 2) Keeping applications up to date
    Keeping your operating system up to date is critical, but its also important to keep your applications up to date.
    If security holes are discovered in common applications that most people use, malware writers are sure to try and exploit them to install their malicious content.
    Many applications have automatic updates. If you are asked about installing an update you should do so unless you got a good reason not to.
    There are also several online sites that offer to scan your computer for outdated software.
    One of them is provided by Secunia. This one is quick and easy to use, and will provide links to updates if outdated software is discovered.
    I recommend you go there once in a while and make sure you got your software up to date.
    Secunias Software Inspector is located here:
    http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/online/
    Visit that page, click Start Scanner and the rest should be fairly easy to figure out.

  • 3) Immunization software
    This section covers security measures which doesn't do any realtime scanning. All they do is block sites that hosts malware, sites that advertises for malware, malicious ActiveX objects, malicious browser helpers, and cookies that have been identified as bad.
    These protection measures have proven very effective against "internet related" threats and require virtually no computer resources.
    I recommend you install all of the below, regardless of what real-time scanners you use (i.e anti-virus and such).
    - MVP hosts
      Blocks rougly 25k online domains that hosts or advertises malicious content.
      Will significantly reduce the chance of getting in trouble by accidently visiting the wrong page.
    • Download hosts.zip from here and save the file to your desktop
    • Open hosts.zip and extract the file called HOSTS to the folder C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc
    • Answer Yes if asked about overwriting an existing file
    • Delete hosts.zip
    Notes:
    If you have previously added custom entries to your own hosts file, these will have to be re-added after the new hosts file is installed.
    The MVP hosts file should be downloaded and re-installed every now and then to keep it up to date.
    If you install MVP Hosts you should disable a service called "DNS client".
    If you dont, your browser(s) will use 10-60 seconds longer to start than what you are used to.
    Disabling this service will have no side-effects. Its purpose is to put domains in cache, but there is no noticeable increase in browsing speed.
    To disable the "DNS Client" service, do the following:
    • Press the windows key and the R key at the same time to open the run dialog box
    • Type in services.msc and press Enter to open the control panel for services
    • Right-click on "DNS client" and chose "Stop".
    • After the service has stopped, right-click on it again, chose "Properties" and set "startup type" to "disabled, press "Apply" and "OK".

    - Javacool Spywareblaster
      Multi-purpose blocker of activeX objects, browser helpers and unwanted cookies.
    • Download Spywareblaster from here and install it using default settings
    • Launch Spywareblaster
    • Click "manual updating" (automatic require a subscription)
    • Click "updates"->"check for updates"
    • When the updates are finished downloading, click "protection status" -> "enable all protection"
    Note:
    The last two steps should be repeated from time to time to keep the protection up to date.

    - Spybot immunization
      Multi-purpose blocker of domains, activeX objects, browsers helpers and unwanted cookies.
    • Download Spybot from here
    • When installing spybot, be sure to uncheck "Security center integration", "Separate secure shredder application" and "use system settings protection (teatimer)".
      These features have more cons than pros.
    • Launch Spybot
    • Click "update" -> "check for updates" and install all available updates.
    • Click "Immunize" in the left menu and then "immunize" in the right-hand window to enable the protection. (this may take a couple of minutes to finish)
    Note:
    The last two steps should be repeated from time to time to keep the protection up to date.

    After immunization you will start to notice that on some web sites advertisements are not displayed, instead it shows an icon indicating that an image couldnt be loaded or a small frame saying "the web page could not be displayed".
    The reason for this is that the immunization is blocking the site that are hosting the ads because it has been found to advertise for malicious software.
    If you try to enter a website that is being blocked, the browser will simply say "the web page could not be displayed".

    4) Real-time protection
    This section covers security measures that work in real time and scans computer activity as it is happening (anti-virus/anti-malware scans a file before it allows it to be opened, a firewall controls network traffic and blocks it unless you have allowed it to happen).
    This requires a lot of system resources, so what we are looking for is applications with good detection rate, low resource usage, that dont cause problems for legitimate applications.
    I have divided the real-timer scanners into sub-catergories and listed my recommendation for each catergory.

    - Anti-virusNote:
    Never have more than one Anti-virus application installed. Installing a second one is likely to cause conflicts between the two and apart from making your system unstable it will reduce your security rather than increase it.

    - Anti-malware
      These applications are ment to supplement your antivirus as they are aimed spesifically at detecting malicious programs.
      This can be programs designed to display advertisements (adware), track your internet surfing (spyware), give other people control over your computer (backdoors) and the likes.
      Unfortuntly, in the anti-malware department there arent any great free alternatives like there are in the anti-virus department.
      If you want an anti-malware application worth using you'll need to purchase one. Here are three good alternatives:
    • Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • SUPERAntiSpyware (can be tried for 14 days for free)
    • A-squared Anti-Malware (can be tried for 30 days for free)
    Note:
    You can have more than one of these running at the same time, but I don't recommend it because it only gives a small increase in security while a big increase in usage of system resources.
    These can also be run alongside a security suite.

    - 3rd party Firewall
      Modern operating systems and routers have firewalls built into them that control incoming traffic so the main reason you might want to install a 3rd party firewall is to control outgoing traffic.
      Firewalls are different from other security software as it really is a tool you need to learn how to use, rather than an automatic security solution. An anti-virus application for instance you usually just install and then it runs in the background and only alerts you if something is wrong.
      That is not the case with firewalls. It will alert you whenever something tries to connect to the internet, whether its good or bad, and then its up to you to allow or deny the request. So ultimately you are increasing the security yourself with the help of the firewall.
      If you want to have top notch security you need a 3rd party firewall and the knowledge of how to use it. This will be your last line of defense should something bad get through your immunzation, and anti-virus/anti-malware protection.
      It enables you to prevent a trojan downloader from downloading malware to your computer should you end up with one, or prevent malware from sending personal information after it has collected it.
      However, firewalls can be difficult to use properly. When the firewall prompts you with "should xxx be allowed to connect to the internet?" you need to be able to decide whether xxx is good or bad. Most people who use a 3rd party firewall doesnt know how to do this, and click Yes every time, hence making it fairly useless to have a 3rd party firewall.
      In my opinion, firewalls are for the ones who have an above average need/interest in computer security, but nevertheless it's needed to have top-notch security.
      Here are three good, free alternatives if you desire to have one. They each have their own support forum that can help you learn how setup and use their firewall.
    • Comodo
      (If you chose this one, be sure to uncheck the following alternatives during installation:
      "Install Comodo SafeSurf..", "Make Comodo my default search provider" and "Make Comodo Search my homepage")
    • PCTools Firewall
    • Online Armor

    - Winpatrol
      This program is not strictly a security application, but gives you a lot more control over your computer.
      Like a firewall it's a tool you need to learn how to use.
      Basically it watches your system settings and alerts you if an application tries to change something. Then its up to you to accept or deny this change.
      Its main purpose is to watch programs that add themselfs to auto-start, but it also watches file associations, activeX objects and Internet Explorer helpers.
      Most programs do not need to be on auto-start, and the bad thing about auto-start is that it clogs down system resources.
      With winpatrol you can easily detect and prevent when an unwanted auto-start entry is added, and this becomes an additional security layer because most malware will add itself to auto-start.
      You can download winpatrol from here
      And here's a link to a place where you can get more information on how to use it

    If you managed to read through all of that you're probably asking "do I really need that much security software?".
    That depends on what your computer is used for.
    I'd say that everybody who uses a computer on the internet today really needs the following:
    - Windows updates (having all windows updates is more important than any security software)
    - The immunization software in step 3
    - Anti-virus software
    That's the minimum.
    If you use your computer for financial transactions (online bank, web-shopping, etc) or have sensitive information stored on the computer, you should strongly consider buying an anti-malware application to supplement your anti-virus software. A 3rd party firewall should also be considered.
    If you like to use your computer freely and install a lot of different programs, use file-sharing applications and surf all over the web you should also consider enhancing security as you'll be more at risk for infections.

    5) Safe and sensible online practices
    A book could be written on this subject, but here are some key points:
    - Be carefull about what you download and which programs you install.
    Dont blindly install every program that looks neat. If you're suspicious about a program, do a search online and see what others have to say about it before you install it.
    Be especially cautious about programs ment to "boost" your computer in any way, or programs that claim to make your computer run better.
    Any content given away for free are reason for suspicion.
    - Be carefull about which links you click.
    If somebody sends you a link you didnt expect, ask them about it before you click it.
    Some infections are designed to send messages to everybody on a persons email/messenger contact list, and if one of your contacts are infected, you may recive such messages
    - Be carefull about which email attachments you open.
    Use the same caution with unexpected email attachments as with links.
    - If a site looks shady, it probably is
    Sites that host malicious content often look shady with all types of adds and offers. Just navigate away.


For you I would recommend keeping McAfee, at least until the subscription runs out, and then evaluate whether or not you'd like to have it replaced.
Be sure to do the immunization steps for increased protection. Whether or not you need an Anti-Malware application is up to you to decide. Don't install a 3rd party firewall while you got McAfee installed, unless you disable the firewall built into McAfee.

Thats it.
