Hi

Your log shows some very bad trojans on your computer: W32/Agobot-AIW


Important Note: Backdoor/IRCBot Trojans are very dangerous because they provide a means of accessing a computer system that bypasses security mechanisms. Remote attackers use backdoor Trojans as part of an exploit to to gain unauthorized access to a computer and take control of it without your knowledge. When infected by one of them you should disconnect the computer from the Internet until your system is cleaned. If your computer was used for online banking or has credit card information on it, all passwords should be changed immediately to include those used for email, eBay and forums. You should consider them to be compromised. They should be changed by 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 breech.

More info can be found here:

How to report ID theft, fraud, drive-by installs, hijacking and malware?
http://www.dslreports.com/faq/10451

Some further reading:

Security Management - May 2004

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/community...gmt/sm0504.mspx

Security Management - July 2004
Help: I Got Hacked. Now What Do I Do? Part II
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/community...gmt/sm0704.mspx

Though the Trojan has been identified and can be killed, because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of Trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the OS.

When should I re-format? How should I reinstall?
http://www.dslreports.com/faq/10063

If you choose to format and reinstall see this link for instructions:
http://www.cyberwalker.net/faqs/how-tos/reinstall-faq.html

We can attempt to clean this machine but i can't guarantee that it will be 100% secure afterwards.

In your next reply, please let me know if you decided to reformat your PC.

Thanks

I have decided NOT to reformat my PC.

I want to try to clean it. I have a router here at home and I have it secured with a fairly good password (alphanumeric + symbols), as well as the same password-encryption for my windows machine.

I'd like you to help me (if you can) clean this beast. I'd rather not do a reformat.

Thanks,
Friar

Hello,


1. We need to backup the registry before we continue. Registry edits can be potentially dangerous; we can revert to the backup if needed.

Backup Your Registry with ERUNT
  • Please use the following link and scroll down to ERUNT and download it.
    http://aumha.org/freeware/freeware.php
  • For version with the Installer:
    Use the setup program to install ERUNT on your computer
  • For the zipped version:
    Unzip all the files into a folder of your choice.
Click Erunt.exe to backup your registry to the folder of your choice.

Note: to restore your registry, go to the folder and start ERDNT.exe


2. Copy/paste the following quote box into a new notepad (not wordpad) document. Make sure that wordwrap is turned off.

regedit.exe /e "%cd%\ExportAU1.reg" HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU
regedit.exe /e "%cd%\ExportAU2.reg" HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU
type "%cd%\ExportAU1.reg" > "%cd%\ExportAU.txt
type "%cd%\ExportAU2.reg" >> "%cd%\ExportAU.txt
del "%cd%\ExportAU1.reg"
del "%cd%\ExportAU2.reg"


Save it to your Desktop as ExportAU.bat. Save it as:
File Type: All Files (not as a text document or it wont work).
Name: ExportAU.bat

Locate ExportAU.bat on your Desktop and double-click it. A DOS window will open briefly and then close, this is normal

Once it has completed, open the file ExportAU.txt that it created and post the contents as a reply to this topic allong with a new hijackthis log.

Thanks

Thanks for all your help. I've gone ahead and done what you've asked but there is a problem.

I ran the exportAU.bat file (Which I created like you said) and the dos-box opened and closed (like you said it would) and it created the ExportAU.txt file on my desktop (like you said) BUT

There is nothing in the ExportAU.txt file. It's completely blank!

:EDIT: Do you know why Norton didn't pick up on this in the first place? I have it set up to scan EVERY file that I access (read/written) to my computer and it didn't come up with anything until I rebooted my computer the day I made this topic. It came up on the startup scan saying I had a virus with svshost.exe. Why wouldn't it have picked this up before I installed anything? Isn't Norton supposed to do that? Grrr. :/EDIT:

Hi Friar,

There is nothing in the ExportAU.txt file. It's completely blank!


Ok, thats no problem!

Do you know why Norton didn't pick up on this in the first place?

Please read this excelent document wrote by TonyKlein's:

So how did I get infected in the first place?


Please go here to run an online scannner from ESET:
  • Note: You will need to use Internet explorer for this scan
  • Tick the box next to YES, I accept the Terms of Use.
  • Click Start
  • When asked, allow the activex control to install
  • Click Start
  • Make sure that the option Remove found threats is unticked, and the option Scan unwanted applications is checked
  • Click Scan
  • Wait for the scan to finish
  • Use notepad to open the logfile located at C:\Program Files\EsetOnlineScanner\log.txt
  • Copy and paste that log as a reply to this topic, along with a new HijackThis log and a description of any remaining problems
Thanks

Ok, I've gone ahead and ran that ESET Online-Scan (I used to use NOD32, I don't know why I ever switched to Norton. I think I'll buy a new copy of NOD)

Hi Friar,

I think I'll buy a new copy of NOD)


Maybe there are better choices than Norton, for a pay versions. A good choice that i suggest you to buy is:

Does it look like I'm clean? If so, THANKS SO MUCH! thumbup.gif I LOVE people who help others, such as yourself, ESPECIALLY with nasty bugs.


You are very wellcome. Im glad i was able to help you.

Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:
  • Disable and Enable System Restore. - If you are using Windows ME or XP then you should disable and re-enable system restore to make sure there are no infected files found in a restore point.

    You can find instructions on how to enable and reenable system restore here:

    Managing Windows Millenium System Restore

    or

    Windows XP System Restore Guide

    Reenable system restore with instructions from tutorial above

  • Make your Internet Explorer more secure - This can be done by following these simple instructions:
    • From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
    • Click once on the Security tab
    • Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
    • Click once on the Custom Level button.
      • Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
      • Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
      • Change the Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable
      • Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt
      • Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt
      • Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt
      • When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
      • If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
    • Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.
  • Use an AntiVirus Software - It is very important that your computer has an anti-virus software running on your machine. This alone can save you a lot of trouble with malware in the future.

    See this link for a listing of some online & their stand-alone antivirus programs:

    Virus, Spyware, and Malware Protection and Removal Resources

  • Update your AntiVirus Software - It is imperitive that you update your Antivirus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your antivirus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.

  • Use a Firewall - I can not stress how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer. Without a firewall your computer is succeptible to being hacked and taken over. I am very serious about this and see it happen almost every day with my clients. Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly.

    For a tutorial on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones see the link below:

    Understanding and Using Firewalls

  • Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit http://www.windowsupdate.com regularly. This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.

  • Install Spybot - Search and Destroy - Install and download Spybot - Search and Destroy with its TeaTimer option. This will provide realtime spyware & hijacker protection on your computer alongside your virus protection. You should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using Spybot - Search & Destroy to remove Spyware , Malware, and Hijackers

  • Install Ad-Aware - Install and download Ad-Aware. ou should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software in conjunction with Spybot.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using Ad-aware to remove Spyware, Malware, & Hijackers from Your Computer

  • Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will added a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using SpywareBlaster to protect your computer from Spyware and Malware

  • Update all these programs regularly - Make sure you update all the programs I have listed regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.
Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.

here are some additional utilities that will enhance your safety
  • IE/Spyad <= IE/Spyad places over 4000 websites and domains in the IE Restricted list which will severely impair attempts to infect your system. It basically prevents any downloads (Cookies etc) from the sites listed, although you will still be able to connect to the sites.
  • MVPS Hosts file <= The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well know ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your coputer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer
  • Google Toolbar <= Get the free google toolbar to help stop pop up windows.
  • Winpatrol <= Download and install the free version of Winpatrol. a tutorial for this product is located here:
    Using Winpatrol to protect your computer from malicious software
