[Win. XP Home SP3]SMTP connections from services.exe

Unread postby tgp1994 » October 24th, 2010, 12:51 pm

About a week ago, it seems like I was hit by a drive by download using Mozilla Firefox 3.6.11. A bunch of windows attempting to install their malicious versions of anti virus popped up, and I knew right away I was hit.

So I shut down the computer, and eventually got it up to the point where most of the malware was gone.

However, it seems I'm still infected. I am seeing tons of outgoing SMTP connections from services.exe (most of which are fortunately either being blocked by ESET NOD32 or PeerBlock).

If anyone can possibly help me finish cleaning up without having me do a reformat, that would be great.

Re: [Win. XP Home SP3]SMTP connections from services.exe

Unread postby tgp1994 » October 24th, 2010, 2:35 pm

I just thought I'd run Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware for kicks and grins. It turns out I was much more infected that I originally thought. So, I cleaned up most of the infection, but one file wouldn't go away... one stored in C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\peubkaf.sys. I honestly have no idea what it does, but I didn't really care anyways.

However, it's impossible to remove or rename it, whether you're in safe mode or not. So I burned Puppy Linux to a cd, booted that up, then renamed the file. No more mysterious connections going out of services.exe! Yay!

My method used there is extremely dangerous, although it worked where MBAM wouldn't. I'm not completely sure if I'm clean yet, anyways.

Please familiarize yourself with the forum rules: >Forum Posting Rules - Please Read<

We're sorry, but it is necessary to close your topic because you have replied to it prior to receiving a response from a helper.

Due to adding on to your topic with your second post it is highly unlikely that you would have received a response. Our helpers are looking for topics with zero responses. When you post replies to your own topic, it no longer has zero responses, and so it appears that you have received help when in fact, you have not.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Malware Removal forum and wait for assistance. Please do not run additional programs and/or post additional logs. Just your HijackThis log to start with, and an Uninstall List, is adequate. Your helper will ask for additional logs as needed. DO NOT reply to your own topic until you have received a response from a helper. Be patient. There are others who have been waiting longer than you, so do not expect an immediate reply.
