Trojan Virus - xhost problems

Unread postby jaydubem » June 28th, 2010, 3:13 pm

I have removed some files in c:\commonfiles - xhostr.exe and xhostu.exe among others. I have several problems - can't load Outlook - get installing update message then fails. Also get install message for all Office programs, but they do actuially open eventually - 2003 and 2010 beta.

I had MS Essentials security, but replaced it with Kaspersky, which detected but did not repair the Trojan.

IE is very slow and hard to close. But Firefox runs great.

Also get an svchost.exe illegal memory message sometimes when rebooting, even have to power it off and restart sometimes.

Here are the logs:

If you still require assistance, please post a link to your topic in our Waiting for help with malware removal? forum, and our staff will make an effort to assist you as promptly as possible. Only post a LINK to this topic, DO NOT post your DDS log!

Please do not reply to this topic.

If you haven't posted within two days in the "Waiting for help with malware removal?" forum, we will assume you have been able to get assistance in other ways and this topic will be closed.

Hello jaydubem... welcome to the forum.
My name is Airscape and I'll be helping you with your malware issues.
The logs can take a while to research. Please be patient with me.

Take note of the following before we begin:
  • Post to this thread only and please stick to it until you are given an All Clean. Absence of symptoms does not mean that your computer is clean.
  • The instructions I give are for This computer only and should not be used on any other pc.
  • Do NOT run any tools/scans unless I instruct you to.
  • Try not to install/uninstall any programs while we work. This will add extra time researching your logs.
  • If you have found assistance elsewhere and no longer require our help, please say so, and this topic will be closed.
  • If you have any problems, please stop and ask before proceeding with any fixes.
  • ALL USERS OF THIS FORUM MUST READ THIS FIRST

Note: As I'm still in training here at MRU everything I post must be checked by an expert first. So there may be a slight delay in between posts.

Important:
Please be aware that removing Malware is a hazardous undertaking. I will take care not to knowingly suggest courses of action that might damage your computer. However it is impossible for me to foresee all interactions that may happen between the software on your computer and those we'll use to clear you of infection, and I cannot guarantee the safety of your system. It is possible that we might encounter situations where the only recourse is to re-format and re-install your operating system, or to necessitate you taking your computer to a repair shop.

In light of this it would be wise for you to back up any important files and folders that you don't want to lose before we start.

Hi jaydubem.
Please tell me, is this computer used for business purposes?


Keylogger Warning
I'm afraid I have some bad news. You computer as been infected with a keylogger!
Keyloggers are very dangerous because they sit stealthily on your system, monitor all the keys you press
and can steal sensitive information to include your logins, passwords and private (financial) data.
Please take a minute to review these guidelines:
  • If your computer was used for online banking, has credit card information or other sensitive data on it,
    you should immediately disconnect from the Internet until your system is cleaned.
  • All passwords should be changed immediately to include those used for banking, email, eBay, PayPal and online forums.
    You should consider them to be compromised.
  • Change passwords ... using a different computer and not the infected one.
    If not, an attacker may get the new passwords and transaction information.
  • Banking and credit card institutions should be notified of the possible security breach.
Because your computer was compromised...
Please read "How Do I Handle Possible Identify Theft, Internet Fraud and CC Fraud?"
Although the keylogger can be identified and removed, your PC has likely been compromised and there is no way to be sure the computer can ever be trusted again.
It is dangerous and incorrect to assume that because the keylogger has been removed the computer is now secure.
In some instances, such an infection may download/install other malicious files to your system.
The malware may leave so many remnants behind that security tools cannot find them.

Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of malware,
the best course of action is to wipe the drive clean, reformat and reinstall the OS.
This is a decision that you will have to make. No action will be taken unless you reply that you want to proceed with the removal attempt.

Here are some articles you can read, that may be beneficial:

Please let me know how you wish to proceed. Thanks.

Due to a lack of response, this topic is now closed.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Infected? Virus, malware, adware, ransomware, oh my! forum, include a fresh FRST log, and wait for a new helper.
