Posted 24 October 2007 - 08:12 AM

It continually amazes me, how dangerous the internet has become these days.

My computer currently has a pretty ugly infection. It slows everything down, and has impeded my cable internet connection, forcing me to do this post and upload my log data at work. It seems to have an affect also on the ability of System32/services.exe to perform normal operations. McAfee gave a message about a buffer overflow error, and a restart produced an error dialog box that cited the same pathway and failed to finish startup.

I have and have run:
Spybot
Adaware
Spyware Doctor
McAfee virus scan
Super-Antispyware
Cleanup


Here is my HijackThis log:

Hello,

Welcome to BleepingComputer Forums and thanks for your patience.

You might want to save this page on your favorites, so you can find it again when you return.


Your log shows some very bad trojans on your computer: Troj/VB-DXP

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:

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:

I 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

Lusitano,
Thank you for your advice, and for taking the time to review my log and situation, and make your recommendations. At this time, due to the long-term security concerns involved, I have decided to reformat my disc, and have obtained the assistance of someone local to ensure the process is completed correctly.

Thank you again for your time, energy, and effort. Bleepingcomputer is a powerful asset to the computer/internet community!

Have a great weekend,
Aaron
