Trojan.Win32.Patched.hg Infection

Unread postby bhaenke » April 7th, 2010, 11:09 pm

Description of Problem:
My PC has been infected with Trojan.Win32.Patched.hg. The security software provided by my (old) ISP detects it upon startup: "Malicious code found in file C:\WINDOWS\syst...\ws2_32.dll Infection: Trojan.Win32.Patched.hg". Once booted I can use local applications, but network access is blocked. When I try to open Firefox I get "firefox.exe Application Error: The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000022) Click on OK to terminate the application." I get the same message when I try to ping from the command prompt (ping.exe Application Error....). I can launch IE, but I just get the generic "The page cannot be displayed" response. Finally, I tried to install another malware tool suggested by one of your counterparts (I think the tool was MGTools?), but found that Patched.hg detected this and would consistently change the file extension from .exe to .ex0 (or similar), preventing installation. I know I'm out of date on my MS updates. I get to that as soon as I get clean. Here's the HJT output as instructed:

Hi bhaenke,
I am not terribly optimistic about the chances to fix this without a reformat and re-install.
The unpatched Windows XP and the hidden folders make this nearly impossible to troubleshoot.
The resident infections may have corrupted your system files beyond repair.
If the procedures outlined below are unacceptable or unmanageable to you, I understand, but in that case cannot help further.

If you want to try, i would suggest the following:
You have a program called "Advanced Hide Folders" installed on the machine. You need to first use it to Unhide all the effected folders.
Then you need to Uninstall "Advanced Hide Folders" and "Spybot - Search and Destroy"
Use Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs to do so.
If Spybot asks whether you want to remove all settings, answer YES.
------------------------------------------------
REBOOT(RESTART) Your Machine
------------------------------------------------
You may need to download some of the following from a clean machine to a flash drive, and copy them to your machine.
First delete any file on the flash named autorun.inf, and create a FOLDER by that name on the flash. This just minimizes the prospect of a file by that name being copied to the flash as a cross-infection vector.
------------------------------------------------
Download and Run Rkill
Please download Rkill from one of the following links and save to your Desktop (you may want to download several and use whichever one works. They have different extensions):
One, Two,Three or Four
  • Double click on Rkill.
  • A command window will open then disappear upon completion, this is normal.
  • Please leave Rkill on the Desktop until otherwise advised.
Note: If your security software warns about Rkill, please ignore and allow the download to continue.
If you cannot get Rkill to run without being stopped, tell me about it in your reply.
-----------------------------------------------
Run the RSIT Scanner
Please download the scanner from here and save it to your desktop. The icon will be named RSIT.exe
Doubleclick the RSIT icon.
When the scan is complete, two text files will open
log.txt <- this one will be maximized
info.txt <- this one will be minimized
( Both files will be saved here -> C:\rsit\ )
Copy/Paste the contents of both log.txt and info.txt into your next post please. Use two posts if you prefer.
Communicate with the forum here from another machine if necessary.

Let me know how it goes

Hi askey127,

First, thanks for your response. I followed your instructions and captured the tool output on the afflicted machine. I also removed some other non-essential applications.

This log file is located at C:\rkill.log.
Please post this only if requested to by the person helping you.
Otherwise you can close this log when you wish.

-----------------EOF-----------------

A couple of new developments: After booting up the machine today and clearing out some initial warning messages about the Patched, they didn't reappear. Typically my AV warns me as soon as I boot up, and several times during the session, but this time the message didn't appear, even after rebooting several times. I didn't try, but I assume that Patched would reappear if I tried to access the network.
However, in the AV log I noticed a single appearance of two new (or old) offenders on 4/7/10: Trojan-Dropper.Win32.Agent and Packed:W32/Tibs.gen!A.

If after your analysis you strongly recommend that I re-image, I will. Thank you.

bhaenke,
I general, the charter Anti-virus is excellent, but F-Secure is a very heavy load for an older, slower machine.
If we can get this cleaned up, when we are done I would suggest you Uninstall all the Charter(F-Secure) antivirus applications and install either Avira Antivir or Microsoft Security Essentials.
They are both light on resources. The Microsoft AV requires your Windows to pass validation first.
----------------------------------------------
Run Temp File Cleaner
Download Temp File Cleaner and save it to your desktop.
Double click to run it. (Right click and Run as Administrator in Vista)
If it asks to Reboot, choose to do so. This will remove files that could not be removed while Windows was running.
After Restart, log back in to your usual account.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Download and Run MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware
Please go here to the Download Location, click on Download.
  • After clicking on the download and choosing Save, the "Save to location" dialog will come up.
  • Choose Desktop as the location to save the installer and click Save again.
  • You should now have a desktop icon named mbam-setup.exe. Double-click it.
  • Let it install the program where it wants to, with the default settings, and click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • If necessary, start Malwarebytes Anti-Malware again.
  • Once the program is running, select Perform Quick Scan, then click Scan.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • If it found any malware items. Check all items except items in the C:\System Volume Information folder... and click Remove Selected.
  • When completed, a log will open in Notepad. Please save it to a convenient location, and post the contents in your reply.
  • The log can also be found using the "Logs" tab in the program. You can click any log listed to open its contents.
  • Recent logs are named by time/date stamp in this format : mbam-log-2010-mm-dd(hour-min-sec).txt
  • You can now delete the installer icon, named mbam-setup.exe from your desktop.

I will run the tests as instructed. BTW, I ran the Charter (F-secure) AV scan and another anomaly showed up: Server-FTP.Win32.SFH.cu.

bhaenke,
Spybot's Teatimer attempt to prevent changes to your system. In doing so, it can prevent proper removal of spyware.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Remove Programs Using Control Panel
From Start, Settings, Control Panel or Start, Control Panel, click Add/Remove Programs.
Highlight each Entry, as follows, one by one, if it exists, and choose Remove :

Spybot Search & Destroy

Take extra care in answering questions posed by any Uninstaller.
You can re-install it after we are done, if you wish.
If the Uninstaller asks whether you want to remove all the settings, answer YES.
-----------------------------------------------------------
IMPORTANT - REBOOT(RESTART) Your Machine
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We need to do this again in case Spybot prevented removals the first time. It should be a bit quicker.
Run MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware
  • Start Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware.
  • Click on The Update tab. Choose Check for Updates.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • If necessary, start Malwarebytes Anti-Malware again.
  • Once the program is running, select Perform Quick Scan, then click Scan.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • If it found any malware items. Check all items except items in the C:\System Volume Information folder... and click Remove Selected

Let me know when you are done, and tell me if you have a broadband internet connection, like Cable.

askey,

I followed your instructions and it appears that I'm clean. F-Secure did find one virus in a data backup file and I deleted that folder. I have a cable modem and I'm downloading and installing SP3 right now. I'm not too concerned about performance and F-secure seems to be working for me, but I'll consider switching to one of the other AV programs you suggested.

It doesn't do justice, but... thank you again for your expert assistance!!
