Multiple iexplore.exe (hijackthis log)

Unread postby jdavis99 » April 6th, 2009, 11:35 am

Hi guys,

Took over my sister's computer, who was savvy enough to run it for 2 years, with no AV or malware protection, clicking and downloading anything and everything ever sent to her by random emailers with no vowels in their name.

The main problem, evident one at least is multiple IEXPLORE.exe's (as many as 12) open, even when IE is not really open. (I'm a firefox user, so not against uninstalling IE altogether anyway, but I suspect its something more than that).

Thanks in advance.

James

Hi jdavis99

Please do not attach your logs to your post. Instead, copy and paste it into your post.

IMPORTANT I notice there are signs of one or more P2P (Peer to Peer) File Sharing Programs on your computer.

Limewire

I'd like you to read the MRU policy for P2P Programs.

Please go to Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and uninstall the programs listed above (in red).NOW

Make an uninstall list using HijackThis

To access the Uninstall Manager you would do the following:

1. Start HijackThis
2. Click on the Config button
3. Click on the Misc Tools button
4. Click on the Open Uninstall Manager button.

You will now be presented with a screen similar to the one below:

Image

5. Click on the Save list... button and specify where you would like to save this file. When you press Save button a notepad will open with the contents of that file. Simply copy and paste the contents of that notepad here on your next reply

Thanks peku006

Hi jdavis99

I'm afraid I have some bad news for you. Your computer is infected with BACKDOOR TROJAN. A backdoor gives intruders complete control of your computer, logs your keystrokes, steal personal information, etc.

You are strongly advised to do the following:

  • Disconnect the computer from the Internet and from any networked computers until it is cleaned.
  • Back up all your important data except programs. The programs can be reinstalled back from the original disc or from the Net.
  • Call all your banks, financial institutions, credit card companies and inform them that you may be a victim of identity theft and put a watch on your accounts. If you don't mind the hassle, change all youraccount numbers.
  • From a clean computer, change all your passwords (ISP login password, your email address(es) passwords, financial accounts, PayPal, eBay, Amazon, online groups and forums and any other online activities you carry out which require a username and password).

Do NOT change your passwords from this computer as the attacker will be able to get all the new passwords and transaction records.

Due to its backdoor functionality, your computer is very likely to have been compromised and there is no way that it can be trusted again. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of Trojan, the best course of action would be to do a reformat and reinstallation of the operating system (OS). However, if you do not have the resources to reinstall your OS and would like me to attempt to clean your machine, I will be happy to do so. As long as you remember this: I can offer no assurances that the system will be secure afterwards.

To help you understand more, please take some time to read the following articles:

What are Remote Access Trojans and why are they dangerous
How do I respond to a possible identity theft and how do I prevent it
When should do a reformat and reinstallation of my OS
Where to backup your files

Should you have any questions please feel free to ask.

Please let me know what you have decided to do in your next post.
