Hello,

I consistemy get a message from Norton SecurityCtre stating "A recent attemt to attack your computer was blocked. Looking at the details pane for more info tells me "An intrususion attempt by Risk Name - HTTP Trojan Vundo Activity" and the the "Destination - Volokol.com (82.98.235.154.80)" and that "Traffic Description - TCP 49164"

Othe symtoms that some thing isn't right are
+ a "sticky keyboard that doesn't respond to th key. This appears t b random and not th saekeys.
+ I can hear what I think is my hard drive ctinuously churnng away despite a CPU monitor only showing intermittent activity
+ incredibly slow web browsing using IE 7

My Norton Antivirus is up to date but doesn't report anything. I've run Adaware and Spybot but they found nothing but cookies. Tried loading and running the Housecall Antivirus, BitDefendr and MacAfee AVERT Stinger but each one would just hang and do nothing...

Any help you could give would be much appreciated .......

Hello,

I believe I was infected with a Trojan but I think I've fixed the problem now. However, I would just like to have this confirmed. Could someone please look at the HiJackThis log listed below and let me know if it looks ok and that my laptop is clean.

I know everyone is busy on this site so I appreciate any help I may be given ......

MAny thanks

I apologize for the delay in responding, but as you can probably see the forums are quite busy.
Unfortunately there are far more people needing help than there are helpers.

Your latest log looks fine, are there any problems still ?

Hey ... thanks for taking the time to check out the Hijack This log. I'm glad to hear that the log looks clear. My machine is working fine and, thanks to the forums on this site, I've been able to put some extra measures in place that i hope will help to stop getting any more infections or pop ups. Thanks again for your help.

Cheers

Tim

The only thing I would caution you about, is P2P (Filesharing) programs

I'd like you to read the Guidelines for P2P Programs where we explain why it's not a good idea to have them.

Also available here.






The following is some info to help you stay safe and clean.
( Vista users must ensure that any programs are Vista compatible BEFORE installing )

You may already have some of the following programs, but I include the full list for the benefit of all the other people who will be reading this thread in the future.

Online Scanners
I would recommend a scan at one or more of the following sites at least once a month.

!!! Make sure that all your programs are updated !!!
Secunia Software Inspector does all the work for you, .... see HERE for details

AntiSpyware
  • AntiSpyware is not the same thing as Antivirus.
    Different AntiSpyware programs detect different things, so in this case it is recommended that you have more than one.
    You should only have one running all the time, the other/s should be used "on demand" on a regular basis.
    Most of the programs in this list have a free (for Home Users ) and paid versions,
    it is worth paying for one and having "realtime" protection, unless you intend to do a manual scan often.
  • Spybot - Search & Destroy <<< A must have program
    • It includes host protection and registry protection
    • A hosts file is a bit like a phone book, it points to the actual numeric address (i.e. the IP address) from the human friendly name of a website. This feature can be used to block malicious websites
  • MalwareBytes Anti-malware <<< A New and effective program
  • a-squared Free <<< A good "realtime" or "on demand" scanner
  • AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 <<< A good "on demand" scanner
  • superantispyware <<< A good "realtime" or "on demand" scanner
Prevention
  • These programs don't detect malware, they help stop it getting on your machine in the first place.
    Each does a different job, so you can have more than one
  • Winpatrol
    • An excellent startup manager and then some !!
    • Notifies you if programs are added to startup
    • Allows delayed startup
    • A must have addition
  • SpywareBlaster 4.0
    • SpywareBlaster sets killbits in the registry to prevent known malicious activex controls from installing themselves on your computer.
  • SpywareGuard 2.2
    • SpywareGuard provides real-time protection against spyware.
    • Not required if you have other "realtime" antispyware or Winpatrol
  • ZonedOut
    • Formerly known as IE-SPYAD, adds a long list of sites and domains associated with known advertisers and marketers to the Restricted sites zone of Internet Explorer.
  • MVPS HOSTS
    • This little program packs a powerful punch as it blocks ads, banners, 3rd party Cookies, 3rd party page counters, web bugs, and many hijackers.
    • For information on how to download and install, please read this tutorial by WinHelp2002.
    • Not required if you are using other host file protections
Internet Browsers
  • Microsoft has worked hard to make IE.7 a more secure browser, unfortunately whilst it is still the leading browser of choice it will always be under attack from the bad guys.
    Using a different web browser can help stop malware getting on your machine.
    • 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 Initialise 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.
If you are still using IE6 then either update, or get one of the following.
  • FireFox
    • With many addons available that make customization easy this is a very popular choice
    • NoScript and AdBlockPlus addons are essential
  • Opera
    • Another popular alternative
  • Netscape
    • Another popular alternative
    • Also has Addons available
[/list]Cleaning Temporary Internet Files and Tracking Cookies
  • Temporary Internet Files are mainly the files that are downloaded when you open a web page.
    Unfortunately, if the site you visit is of a dubious nature or has been hacked, they can also be an entry point for malware.
    It is a good idea to empty the Temporary Internet Files folder on a regular basis.

    Tracking Cookies are files that websites use to monitor which sites you visit and how often.
    A lot of Antispyware scanners pick up these tracking cookies and flag them as unwanted.
    CAUTION :- If you delete all your cookies you will lose any autologin information for sites that you visit, and will need your passwords

    Both of these can be cleaned manually, but a quicker option is to use a program
  • ATF Cleaner
    • Free and very simple to use
  • CCleaner
    • Free and very flexible, you can chose which cookies to keep
Also PLEASE read this article.....So How Did I Get Infected In The First Place

The last and most important thing I can tell you is UPDATE.
If you don't update your security programs (Antivirus, Antispyware even Windows) then you are at risk.
Malware changes on a day to day basis. You should update every week at the very least.

If you follow this advice then (with a bit of luck) you will never have to hear from me again :thumbsup:

Happy surfing K'
