Virus deleting all files on XP/SP3

Unread postby johnag » August 14th, 2011, 11:33 am

Good day,

*** I have created this a few times but keep pressing the wrong button and loosing everything.
*** My apologies if duplicates have occurred.

I have been attacked by a vicious virus/malware that erases all files on the system (XP/SP3).

1. The first attack was on 28 July.
2. The first phase of the attack deletes the desktop shorcuts in C:\Documents and Settings\username. This is done slowly, one icon at a time. Eventually the entire folder is deleted.
3. Next the virus deletes the files in c:\. Again slowly. Eventually it takes out boot.ini and the other boot files.
4. It then appears to delete the other files and folders in C:\Documents and Settings\username. If I move fast enough I can copy my outlook.pst to another drive. You have gathered by now that I can sit and watch this thing slowly destroy my PC, hence I have called it Reality Virus since it is like watching a reality TV show.
5. Once C: is destroyed the virus moves onto D:
6. Having destroyed all available drives it then creates a .bat file that attempts to erase everything in \system32 and finally the system dies never to be booted again.
7. I recover by restoring from an image of my C drive. However the first time I connected the backup drive to the PC the virus jumped onto the backup drive and also destroyed it. Fortunately I always have 2 backup images.
I now recover by booting Linux and deleteing the MBR on all drives (not sure if this required but decided not to take a chance). The destroyed C drive is re-formatted. I then boot the backup image and copy it across to the "production" C drive.
8. I have run Kaspersky, NOD32, Malwarebytes and BitDefender (evaluation copies) but nothing is found.

That was 2 weeks ago and I thought I had recovered. This past Friday, 12 Aug, I got hit again at 7.00am. By noon I had recovered using the previous night's backup. At 4.00pm I was once again attacked.

I have now recovered, yet again, and have been running for 24 hours. After the recovery I once again did a full scan with Kaspersky and again nothing has been found.

I am waiting for the next attack.... HELP PLEASE

Regards John

Re: Virus deleting all files on XP/SP3

Unread postby johnag » August 14th, 2011, 1:58 pm

I took over the PC when I retired from IBM as a systems engineer 12 years ago (I am 64 years old – the oldest nerd around (X’40’). Since then I have managed to keep the PC going, upgrading from W2K to XP, installing new motherboards and disk drives etc. Currently I use the PC to support community projects (such as mailing lists and contact information for our sector crime watch), hence all the free databases installed (Oracle 10G, Firebird, MSSQL express). Looking at the dds data I see a lot of junk I have tried out over the years and thought I had deleted, such as VNC and Atomic Email Hunter, which looked like a possible spam tool when I used it to try to recover a lost mailing list and then deleted it. It is not even listed in the list of programs in "add or remove programs", but it appears to have left code behind in IE as per the dds report. Has this thing been using my PC as a spam agent?

Hi johnag,

Welcome to the forum.

Please be aware that removing Malware is a potentially 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.

Please note the following:
  • I will be working on your Malware issues, this may or may not, solve other issues you have with your machine.
  • The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for this issue on this machine.
  • Please do not run any scans or make any changes to the system unless I ask you too.
  • Please continue to review my answers until I tell you your machine appears to be clear. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.
  • If after 3 days you have not responded to this topic, it will be closed, and you will need to start a new one.
  • It's often worth reading through these instructions and printing them for ease of reference.
  • If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to say or ask!! It's better to be sure and safe than sorry.
  • Please reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.

The software installed did make me think that the computer is running as some form of spam machine. Let's continue and investigate the problems.

Please let me know what connection you have with the company JAFCAL SOFTWARE and what the FARGO DTC4500 Card Printer is used for.

CKScanner

  • Please download CKScanner from here to your Desktop.
  • Make sure that CKScanner.exe is on the your Desktop before running the application!
  • Double-click on CKScanner.exe and click Search For Files.
  • After a very short time, when the cursor hourglass disappears, click Save List To File.
  • A message box will verify the file saved
  • Double-click on the CKFiles.txt icon on your Desktop and copy/paste the contents in your next reply.

Next

  • Please download this tool from Microsoft.
  • Double click on MGADiag.exe to run it.
  • Click Continue.
  • The program will run. It takes a while to finish the diagnosis, please be patient.
  • Once done, click on Copy.
  • Open Notepad and paste the contents in the window.
  • Save this file and copy/paste it in your next reply.

Please let me know if the computer is used for home or for business use.

Hi Deltalima

I lost the system again yesterday morning. Instead of restoring from a backup image (which I now suspect is also infected) I decided to do a Windows repair. The repair process continually failed when referencing the driver “IBVCM2KU.SYS”, which is an old driver supplied by my previous ISP and no longer required. I then deleted the driver and the repair completed. Whist I was applying the Windows Updates that had been lost, the desktop was again deleted. From searching the web I understand that a worm called VBS.PUB, that uses a polymorphic engine to modify itself, will, on the 6th, 13th, 21st, or 28th of the month, delete all the files from the computer (which is exactly what happened to me). Given that the system on my PC is over 10 years old, and goodness knows where this worm is hiding, I have decided against wasting any more time, yours and mine, in trying to fix XP and instead I will get new hardware, install Windows 7 with IE9 and keep family critical data on a USB3 drive. All existing programs that I still required I will install from their original CD/web images so I know all is clean. Fortunately my data is kept on the D drive, so all of this can be recovered.
Thanks for your help
