Smart engine (fake anti-virus) hijacking browser

Unread postby hthjones » October 21st, 2010, 3:33 pm

I have a fake anti-virus window which reads as follows: warning! virus detected. Threat detected: trojan-spy.THML.bayfraud.hn

This thing does not allow me to open task mangager, it attempts to change my default browser and hijacks my broswer windows. I had to use a separate laptop to enter this post. whenever I tried on my laptop it would lose connection when I attempted to submit the post.

when i ran hijackthis and ran the scan, I got the following message:

for some reson your system denied write access to the hosts file. if any hijacked domains are int this file, hijackthis may not be able to fix this. if that happens, you need to edit the file yourself. to do this, click start, run and type: notepad C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
and press Enter. Find the line(s) hijackthis reports and delete them. save the file as 'hosts'. (with quotes), and reboot. For vista: simply, exit hijacthis right click on the HijackThis icon, choose 'run as administrator'.

Hi hthjones,
-----------------------------------------------------------
Remove Registry items with HijackThis. Start HijackThis.
Click Do System Scan Only. When the Scan is complete, Check the following entries:
(Some of these lines may be missing)
Unless you set this proxy server yourself, check this line:
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyServer = http=127.0.0.1:25482

Check all of these:
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {02478D38-C3F9-4efb-9B51-7695ECA05670} - (no file)
O2 - BHO: Search Toolbar - {9D425283-D487-4337-BAB6-AB8354A81457} - C:\Program Files\Search Toolbar\SearchToolbar.dll
O2 - BHO: Google Toolbar Notifier BHO - {AF69DE43-7D58-4638-B6FA-CE66B5AD205D} - C:\Program Files\Google\GoogleToolbarNotifier\5.6.5612.1312\swg.dll
O3 - Toolbar: Search Toolbar - {9D425283-D487-4337-BAB6-AB8354A81457} - C:\Program Files\Search Toolbar\SearchToolbar.dll
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Smart Engine] "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\09f3f0\SM09f_2180.exe" /s /d
O23 - Service: Application Updater - Spigot, Inc. - C:\Program Files\Application Updater\ApplicationUpdater.exe

Make sure Every other window except HJT is closed (No other tabs showing in the bottom tray), and Click Fix Checked
Click the "X" in the upper right corner of the HiJackThis window to close it.
-----------------------------------------------------------
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 :
Google Update Helper
Search Toolbar

Take extra care in answering questions posed by any Uninstaller.
-----------------------------------------------------------
REBOOT (RESTART) Your Machine
---------------------------------------------
Show All Files
Open Windows Explorer (My Computer)
In the top menu, choose Tools, Folder Options
Click on the View tab
In the list, under Hidden Files and folders, Check Show hidden files and folders
Uncheck Hide extensions for known file types
Uncheck Hide protected operating system files (recommended)
Click OK
-----------------------------------------------------------
Folder and File Deletions
In Windows Explorer (My Computer), navigate to each file or folder shown below, highlight each one in turn shown in red, if found, and press Delete.

C:\Program Files\Search Toolbar\ <== this folder only
C:\Program Files\Application Updater\ <== this folder only
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\09f3f0\ <== this folder only
C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\HOSTS <== this FILE only; it will probably be set as "read-only" (See below).

In the case of removing a folder, you may have to first open the folder, choose View, Details, and delete all the underlying files and folders before the entire folder can be deleted.
These folders contain malware. be careful not to activate any files you are attempting to remove.
If you need to delete underlying files in a folder and are unable to do so:
Right click the file set for deletion, and check Properties to see if it's read-only. Uncheck the read-only box, click Apply and OK. Then retry Delete.
If a message pops up saying "File in use", or something like that,, note the name of the file, hit Ctrl-Alt-Delete and look under the Processes tab. If the exact filename is in there, highlight it and click End Process, then retry Delete.
Please Note the name and location of any item you cannot delete, or not found.
-----------------------------------------------------------
REBOOT (RESTART) Your Machine
-----------------------------------------------------------
We will be needing the following downloads.
If there is still no Internet connection, download them onto a clean machine and save them to a flash drive. Then copy them to the desktop of the infected machine.
Don't do anything with them yet.
RKill
Rkill Two in case the first one doesn't work.
TDSSKiller.exe
ComboFix <== rename this one as zzz.exe when you download it.

Let me know how it goes, and if the machine behaves any differently.

Due to 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.
