Virus/Malware Contracted During Reformatting/Rebuild

Unread postby BurninBK » February 27th, 2009, 11:15 am

At some point in the reformattng/rebuilding/reloading of software, etc. I seem to have contracted a virus and/or malware. I have run AVG (free edition), ESET online scan, and Sasser Worm Removal tool with no luck, results, or change in the symptoms. The symptoms are as follows:
1) after booting up and displaying desktop normally, an error window appears titled "Windows - No Disk" (although before perofrming one of my Windows Update sesssions, it used to be titled "lsass.exe") and basically says there's no disk in the floppy drive. Click options are Cancel, Try Again, Continue. Unless a floppy is inserted (and any of the options selected, including X-ing out the error window), the message keeps appearing or doesn't disappear.
2) as part ofdisplaying the desktop, a small box window appears (non-Windows style) that is titled "Loading Please Wait" and has a circular dot graphic rotating as a indicating of processing/time progression. (It also shows up in the Task Manager with the same title)
3) Start bar/system tray not visible upon Windows start - can access Start menu items by hitting Windows key on keyboard.
4) at some point after all this, will get an error message window titled "sshb" with the message being something like Windows could not confirm string content and ending with some 5 or 6 digit number starting with a 4 (I think).

OS = WinXP Service Pack 2

Re: Virus/Malware Contracted During Reformatting/Rebuild

Unread postby davis » March 4th, 2009, 7:04 am

Hi BurninBK,

I'm afraid i have unpleasant news for you.
Your computer has multiple infections, including Backdoor. A Backdoor gives intruders complete control of your computer, logs your keystrokes, steal personal information, etc. This allows hackers to remotely control your computer, steal critical system information and Download and Execute files

I would counsel you to disconnect this PC from the Internet immediately. If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.

Though the Trojan has been identified and can be killed, because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of Trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the OS. Please read these for more information:

How Do I Handle Possible Identify Theft, Internet Fraud and CC Fraud?
When Should I Format, How Should I Reinstall

We can attempt to clean this machine but i can't guarantee that it will be 100% secure afterwards. If you still want to clean your system, then please follow all instructons and do the following:




Step1


Please print out and follow these instructions: "How to use SDFix". <- This program is for Windows 2000/XP ONLY.
When using this tool, you must use the Administrator's account or an account with "Administrative rights"
  • Disconnect from the Internet and temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any real time protection programs before performing a scan.
  • When done, the SDFix report log will open in notepad and automatically be saved in the SDFix folder as Report.txt.
  • If SDFix is unable to run after rebooting from Safe Mode, run SDFix in either Mode, and type F, then press Enter for it to finish the final stage and produce the report.
  • Please copy and paste the contents of Report.txt in your next reply.
  • Be sure to renable you anti-virus and and other security programs before connecting to the Internet.
-- If the computer has been infected with the VirusAlert! malware warning from the clock and the Start Menu icons or drives are not visible, open the SDFix folder, right-click on either the XP_VirusAlert_Repair.inf or W2K VirusAlert_Repair.inf (depending on your version of Windows) and select Install from the Context menu. Then reboot to apply the changes.


Step2

1.Please run HijackThis! and click "Do a system scan only." Place checks next to the following entries,(if present):


O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Windows Intranet controller] C:\WINDOWS\security\lsass.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Windows Intranet controller] C:\WINDOWS\security\lsass.exe
O4 - HKUS\S-1-5-18\..\Run: [Windows Intranet controller] C:\WINDOWS\security\lsass.exe (User 'SYSTEM')
O4 - HKUS\.DEFAULT\..\Run: [Windows Intranet controller] C:\WINDOWS\security\lsass.exe (User 'Default user')


Close all browsers and other windows except for HijackThis!, and click "Fix Checked".

Restart your pc.


Step3


Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware fromHere or Here


  1. Double Click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  2. Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  3. If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  4. Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Quick Scan", then click Scan.
  5. The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
  6. When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  7. Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  8. When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart.
  9. The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.or you can find from here:
  10. C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\Logs\mbam-log-date (time).txt
  11. You can refer to this tutorial

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.


Step4

  • Download random's system information tool (RSIT) by random/random from here and save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on RSIT.exe to run RSIT.
  • Click Continue at the disclaimer screen.
  • Once it has finished, two logs will open. Please post the contents of both log.txt (<<will be maximized) and info.txt (<<will be minimized)


In you next reply, please post back:


1.MBAM log
2.SDFix log
3.RSIT log.txt and info.txt.

Tell me how your pc is behaving now.

Based on the warning you gave and what looks to be a lot of work to remove/clean the computer (and no assurance of continued cleanliness/security), I'm just going to try another reformat/rebuild (which is how I contracted this virus to begin with). This time, however, I will get an off-the-shelf virus protection that I can load before connecting to the internet for the first time, unless you think I can connect to only the Windows Update webpage without contracting any viruses??
