Infected by a facebook virus

Unread postby Roamy » May 25th, 2009, 5:40 pm

First off: Hello all. I got pointed in your direction by an acquaintance on another forum, with only the highest of acclaims. :)

In any case, why I've posted:I had a sudden but terrible attack of the "stupid" when I decided to click on a facebook link of an old girlfriend that, at a second glance, was blatantly unsecure.

The site in question seemed to be a video sharing site that told me my flash player was out of date and asking to update it.

After a long day at work and BEING AN IDIOT I clicked accept, without even considering the repercussions. Now, I've been working with computers for a long time now and am "internet savvy" enough that I never have virus/spyware/etc troubles, but clearly I really screwed up this time by installing this "flash update". Obviously no flash player update happened and I decided to take a closer look at the link and noticed it referred to an unknown and therefore incredibly dubious IP address. Ouch.

In short: I've got a virus/trojan/something.

I immediately did the obvious (Virus scan, spyware/key logger scan etc), send out a message to my friends not to open any links I may happen to post in the near future etc, but while AVG clearly spotted something, it didn't actually get rid of it according to my hijackthis log. Aforementioned mate from another forum informed me that I still had things of a dubious nature on my logs, and that I should come here to seek help to correctly purge this atrocious virus thing from my computer.

In any case, here's my log file:

I may add, I'm running vista 64 bit and used the following programs immediately after I noticed the infection (all in safe mode):

-Spybot S&D
-AVG Full system scan

Thank you very much in advance, hope that you can help me. :)

Hi Roamy,

Unfortunately up until very recently we did not have tools that gave reliable information for x64 systems. Because of that we were unable to properly diagnose and analyse infections on x64 systems.

We do now have a very limited number of tools, and are currently developing strategies for working on x64 machines, but these are not yet in place, and until we have a number of helpers fully cognisant of the peculiarities of the x64 operating system, the risks of causing damage to an x64 machine by inappropriate action are still deemed to be unacceptable.

Because of this, we do not at this time offer support for 64 bit operating systems.

Sorry we can't be of help to you.
