Hello all...

Well, this is the problem: My little Sister infected her new Vostro 1400 LapTop when she tryed to install a pirated version of "McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.5i".

There was a single "Setup.exe", plus instructions to just "double click it and follow the wizard..."

Well, I was watching this and, just for curiosity, I opened that "Setup.exe" file with 7-Zip, and I found another big "Setup.exe" file inside, along with a little "is154343.exe" file (93.184 Bytes in size).

When I opened the 2nd "Setup.exe" file, I realized the software was there, but encrypted ("ZipCrypto Deflate"), and so I realized my sister was fooled by some "script kiddie" (or the like), as the only possible option to install the software forces the execution of "is154343.exe".

Then, I researched a little, and found a thread in this forum about it: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/149117/virtumonde/

And well, now (after having told my Sis to NOT USE PIRATED SOTWARE anymore) I'm asking for help to get rid of this. I'm a computer professional, very handy in "Windows" matters, but this nasty parasite goes beyond my knowledge.

What do I need to do / post here in order to get help analysing this? Please, help me...

(Thanks a lot... Great forum.) :thumbsup:

Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log in the thread titled "Haven't Had A Reply In Five Days?".

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
