Posted 17 August 2008 - 08:20 PM

So recently, I've noticed that my computer slowed down and has been buggier than usual. I did my usual scan of Yahoo! Anti-Spy, but I found things called Haxdoor E (Backdoor) and Matcash (Downloader). And 2 new processes showed up on my Task Manager, 17PHolmes and mrofinu. Also, when I logged on any account, the computer would stop responding and explorer.exe would stop responding also, so you could see the desktop and taskbar, but no icons near the clock on the bottom right would load, and the taskbar was always busy (I hovered and it had that hourglass thing over it). The only thing I could do was Ctrl-Alt-Del, and log off. When I logged back on, everything was fine except Windows Security popped up and said if I wanted to keep blocking or to unblock Windows Explorer. I chose unblock and my computer was fine until I turned off, and thus I had to repeat the same process again. I used to have AVG, but it practically considered everything dangerous, so I tried to use Kaspersky, but it wouldn't allow me to install it because it found AVG in my computer somewhere. So here is my HJT log:

Hello. I am PropagandaPanda (Panda or PP for short) and I will be helping you with your log.

I will need some time to look over your computer's log(s). I am still in training, so my responses to you must be checked by a coach.

You may want to keep the link to this topic in your favorites. Alternatively, you can click the Posted Image button at the top bar of this topic and Track this Topic, where you can choose email notifications. The topics you are tracking are shown here.

Please take note of a few guidelines for this fix:
  • Refrain from making any changes to your computer including installing/uninstall programs, deleting files, modifying the registry, and running scanners or tools. Doing so could cause changes to the directions I have to give you and prolong the time required. Further more, you should not be taking any advice relating to this computer from any other source throughout the course of this fix.
  • If you do not understand any step(s) provided, please do not hesitate to ask. I would much rather clarify instructions or explain them differently than have something important broken.
  • Even if things appear to be better, it may not mean we are finished. Please continue to follow my instructions and reply back until I give you the "all clean". We do not want to clean you part-way, only to have the system re-infect itself.
  • Finally, please reply using the Posted Image button in the lower right hand corner of your screen. Do not start a new topic. The logs that you post should be pasted directly into the reply. Only attach them if requested or if they do not fit into the post.
With Regards,
The Panda

Important Note to Other Users Reading this Topic: The instructions provided in this topic are for the original topic starter only. Even if you have similar problems or log entries to those given here, please do not follow the directions, especially those involving specific tools and scripts. Doing so can result in serious damage to your computer. Instead, please start your own topic. Feel free to link to any relevant topics as needed.

I have subscribed to this topic when I started it so all things are a go!

Anyways, I recently installed Kaspersky 2009 on my computer. Soon after, it began finding thousands of files corrupted and scanned all of them. After a couple scans, it seemed to delete the 17PHolmes infection and I didn't have to log off and back on to get my computer working again. But, when I do log on, nothing happens until a window pops up that says WLService has encountered an error and needs to close. After that, everything works fine. The only thing that CA Anti-Spy has found is Haxdoor, which is located at:

hkey_local_machine\system\currentcontrolset\services\sharedaccess\parameters\firewallpolicy\standardprofile\autorizedapplications\list



And that's pretty much it. I'll wait for your response.

Hello ChaosKontrol. Very sorry for the delay.

Posted ImageBackdoor Threat
I'm sorry to say that your computer is infected with one or more backdoor trojans.

This means that sensitive information could have been stolen. I would advise to change any passwords for any accounts that you have accessed with the infected computer using a clean computer ASAP. If you have used this computer for banking, I would strongly suggest that you report the possible stolen information. Please do not use the computer for any further transactions, or to enter any other information, if at all possible, until it is declared clean.

You may want to read this article on how to handle identity theft.
You may also want to read this article regarding preventing of identity theft.

This computer can still be cleaned, however, I cannot guarantee that it will be 100% safe even after disinfection.

Please read When Should I Format, How Should I Reinstall.

I will proceed assuming you wish to disinfect. If you want to do a reinstall, reply back saying so.


View Point Program
Viewpoint Manager and Viewpoint Media Player are considered as foistware instead of malware since it is installed without users approval, but does not have malicious effects. This changed from what we know in 2006 read this article.

I suggest you remove the program(s) through Add and Remove Programs.


Download and Run OTMoveIT
  • Please download OTMoveIt2 by OldTimerto your desktop.
  • Double-click OTMoveIt2.exe to run it. (Note: If you are running on Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator).

    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Browser Helper Objects\{3CA2F312-6F6E-4B53-A66E-4E65E497C8C0}
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Browser Helper Objects\{7E853D72-626A-48EC-A868-BA8D5E23E045}
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\\runner1
    C:\WINDOWS\mrofinu.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\mrofinu1001186.exe

  • Return to OTMoveIt2, right click in the Paste List Of Files/Patterns To Move window (under the yellow bar) and choose Paste.

  • Copy everything in the Results window (under the green bar) to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C (or, after highlighting, right-click and choose copy), and paste it in your next reply.
  • Close OTMoveIt2
Note: If a file or folder cannot be moved immediately you may be asked to reboot the machine to finish the move process. If you are asked to reboot the machine choose Yes. In this case, after the reboot, open Notepad (Start->All Programs->Accessories->Notepad), click File->Open, in the File Name box enter *.log and press the Enter key, navigate to the C:\_OTMoveIt\MovedFiles folder, and open the newest .log file present, and copy/paste the contents of that document back here in your next post.


Update Java to Version 6 Update 7
Your current version of Java is outdated. Malware creators can exploit the lesser security of older versions. Please uninstall your current version through Add/Remove Programs. Remove all instances of Java, J2SE Runtime, Java Runtime, and Java Runtime Environment. Restart your computer after uninstalling.

Please then install the latest Java from this page. Follow the prompts and select the appropriate settings for your machine. Click on the "Required File" jdk-6u7-windows-i586-p.exe to download the installer. Double click the installer to run. Delete the installer after use.


Install Antivirus
An anti-virus is essential in keeping your computer safe while surfing the Internet. I see that you have a couple of antispyware programs, but you still require an antivirus.

Please install a free anti-virus program from one of the trusted venders below:Save Uninstall List with HijackThis
  • Double click the HijackThis icon on your desktop.
  • If you see a while screen, click Main Menu at the middle bottom of the window, otherwise move onto the next step.
  • Click Open the Misc Tools section.
  • Under System tools, select Uninstall Manager....
  • Near the bottom right, click Save list... and save uninstall_list.txt onto your desktop.
  • Close out of HijackThis.
  • Post back with the uninstall list.
Run Scan with Kaspersky
Please do a scan with Kaspersky Online Scanner.

This scan is for Internet Explorer Only.

If you are using Windows Vista, open your browser by right-clicking on its icon and select 'Run as administrator' to perform this scan.
  • Please disable your realtime protection software before proceeding. Refer to this page if you are unsure how.
  • Open the Kaspersky Scanner page.
  • Click on Accept and install any components it needs.
  • The program will install and then begin downloading the latest definition files.
  • After the files have been downloaded on the left side of the page in the Scan section select My Computer
  • This will start the program and scan your system.
  • The scan will take a while, so be patient and let it run.
  • Once the scan is complete, click on View scan report
  • Now, click on the Save Report as button.
  • Save the file to your desktop.
  • Copy and paste that information in your next post.
You can refer to this animation by sundavis.

This scanner will only scan. It does not remove any malware it finds.

---------------
Please post back with:
-the OTMoveIt log
-the uninstall list generated by HijackThis
-the Kaspersky log
-a fresh HijackThis log

With Regards,
The Panda
