Help! Malware trying to get my credit card info!!!

Unread postby BillO » January 9th, 2010, 2:26 am

I use IE8 on Win XP service pack 3 and a router to get to internet. Within the last couple of weeks everytime I go to my bank or other website that requires me to login a window pops up that requests that I enter my credit card, expiration date, zip, etc and will not let me continue unless I enter valid information which I have not done.

Please help.

Here are my Hijack and uninstall files;

Re: Help! Malware trying to get my credit card info!!!

Unread postby melboy » January 12th, 2010, 10:54 am

Hi Billo

I'm afraid I have some bad news for you.

There is evidence of an infection on your computer that is a Password Stealer with remote access (backdoor) functionality.

F2 - REG:system.ini: UserInit=C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe,C:\WINDOWS\system32\sdra64.exe,

These types of infection log your keystrokes, steal personal information and allow the remote control of your computer to steal critical system information and download and execute files

I would advise you to disconnect this PC from the Internet immediately, get to a known clean computer and change ALL your online passwords -- for ISP login, email, banks, financial accounts, PayPal, eBay, online companies, and any online forums or groups you belong to.

It would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.

Your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. As you have already stated you use the PC for online financial purposes, the only responsible course of action I can advise is for you to reformat your computer and reinstall windows, backing up any personal files and important data before you do.


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

How to Reformat and Reinstall your Operating System

Should you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Hi, sorry i couldn't give you better news, bill.

Some advice for when you reformat:

Clean Install Windows XP

Back up any personal files or documents you wish to save before you reformat. (photo's, e-mails etc). Some tutorials that may help are:
XP Backup Using NTBackup Backup or Restore Wizard
How to backup and restore your data using Cobian Backup

After formatting the HDD and reinstalling the OS, Install an antivirus, straight away before connecting to the internet. Have the installer file for your chosen AV handy on a form of removable media (Flash Drive/CD etc) if at all possible.

Once you have installed an AV and when you connect to the internet, check for updates for your AntiVirus straight away and then make getting Windows updates a priority.

=======================================

Antivirus
Anti-virus software are programs that detect, cleanse, and erase harmful virus files on a computer, Web server, or network. Unchecked, virus files can unintentionally be forwarded to others, thereby spreading infection. Because new viruses regularly emerge, anti-virus software should be updated frequently. Anti-virus software can scan the computer memory and disk drives for malicious code. They can alert the user if a virus is present, and will clean, delete (or quarantine) infected files or directories.
Suggestions:
  • Antivir PersonalEdition Classic - Free anti-virus software for Windows. Detects and removes more than 50,000 viruses. Free support.
  • avast! 4 Home Edition - Anti-virus program for Windows. The home edition is freeware for non-commercial users.
  • Microsoft Security Essentials - Microsoft Security Essentials provides real-time protection for your home PC that guards against viruses, spyware, and other malicious software.
[Please note that trial pay is not needed to get any product for free.]
It is strongly recommended that you run only one antivirus program at a time. Having more than one antivirus program active in memory uses additional resources and can result in program conflicts, system instability and false virus alerts.

  • Make sure that you keep your antivirus updated
    New viruses come out every minute, so it is essential that you have the latest signatures for your antivirus program to provide you with the best possible protection from malicious software.
    Note: You should only have one antivirus installed at a time. Having more than one antivirus program installed at once is likely to cause conflicts and may well decrease your overall protection as well as impairing the performance of your PC.
    Uninstall Tools for Major Antivirus Products

Security Updates for Windows, Internet Explorer & Microsoft Office
Whenever a security problem in its software is found, Microsoft will usually create a patch so that after the patch is installed, attackers can't use the vulnerability to install malicious software on your PC. Keeping up with these patches will help to prevent malicious software being installed on your PC. Ensure you are registered for Windows updates via Start > right-click on My Computer > Properties > Automatic Updates tab or visit the Microsoft Update site on a regular basis.
Note: The update process uses ActiveX, so you will need to use internet explorer for it and allow the ActiveX control to install.

  • Update Non-Microsoft Programs
    Microsoft isn't the only company whose products can contain security vulnerabilities. To check whether other programs running on your PC are in need of an update, you can use the Secunia Software Inspector - I suggest that you run it at least once a month.
  • Make Internet Explorer More Secure
    Internet Explorer 8 <<< Recommended Version
    For older versions please read and follow the recommendations at this site
    Internet Explorer7
    Internet Explorer6


Recommended Programs

I would recommend the download and installation of some or all of the following programs, and the updating of them on a regular basis.

  • Install and use a firewall with outbound protection
    The Windows firewall only monitors incoming traffic, NOT outgoing. Using a software firewall in its default configuration to replace the Windows firewall greatly reduces the risk of your computer being hacked. Make sure your firewall is always enabled while your computer is connected to the internet.
    Note: You should only have one firewall installed at a time. Having more than one firewall installed at once is likely to cause conflicts and may well decrease your overall protection as well as seriously impairing the performance of your PC.
    Suggestions:
    [Please note that trial pay is not needed to get any product for free.]
  • WinPatrol
    As a robust security monitor, WinPatrol will alert you to hijackings, malware attacks and critical changes made to your computer without your permission. WinPatrol takes snapshot of your critical system resources and alerts you to any changes that may occur without your knowledge. For more information, please visit HERE.
  • Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware is an anti-malware application that can thoroughly remove even the most advanced malware. It includes a number of features, including a built in protection monitor that blocks malicious processes before they even start.You can download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from HERE. You can find a tutorial HERE.
  • Hosts File
    For added protection you may also like to add a host file. A simple explanation of what a Hosts file does is HERE and for more information regarding host files read HERE.
  • Use an alternative Internet Browser
    Many of the exploits are directed to users of Internet Explorer. Try using a different browser instead:
    Firefox
    Opera


Finally I am trying to make one point very clear. It is absolutely essential to keep all of your security programs up to date.
