Posted 20 April 2005 - 08:28 AM

After clearing my computer a few days ago, I think I might have another problem back. Have had Norton and Ad-aware on my PC for a long time; Spybot, Spyware Blaster, and IE-SpyAd since last infection.

Some browser hijacking now occuring. Norton reported stopping Bloodhound 6, but not sure if it is completely gone. Did a check with both Ad-aware and Spybot which found a number of CWS infections. CWS Shredder did not detect them. Needed both Ad-aware and Spybot to seemingly get rid of CWS but not sure if it is all gone.

Found the following suspect files on my pc :
c:\new.exe
c:\eied_s7.cab

Are these indications of a problem ?

Hi Jonat and welcome to the BC forums. After reviewing your log I see now signs of viruses or malware at this time. Your log is clean.

As for the files you mention they may or may not be harmful. Does your antivirus application flag them as infected? You can also submit them to multiple virus engine scans here:

Jotti's malware scan

Fo to teh link above and submit the files for a scan. If they are infected then delete them.

Post back if you have any further questions.

Cheers.

Oldtimer,

Thanks for your link to Jotti's malware scan. It did indeed find a trojan as listed below - interesting that only 3 of the scanning engines found it. And that my Norton Antivirus also doesn't detect it.

The first file was reported as follows :
File: eied_s7.cab

Status: INFECTED/MALWARE (Note: this file has been scanned before. Therefore, this file's scan results will not be stored in the database)
Packers detected: -
Scanner results
AntiVir Found TR/Dldr.Mediket.S.2
Avast Found nothing
AVG Antivirus Found nothing
BitDefender Found nothing
ClamAV Found nothing
Dr.Web Found nothing
F-Prot Antivirus Found nothing
Fortinet Found nothing
Kaspersky Anti-Virus Found Trojan-Downloader.Win32.Mediket.ac
mks_vir Found nothing
NOD32 Found nothing
Norman Virus Control Found nothing
VBA32 Found Trojan-Downloader.Win32.Mediket.1 (probable variant)


The other file was reported upon as follows :
File: new.exe

Status: MIGHT BE INFECTED/MALWARE (Sandbox emulation took a long time and/or runtime packers were found, this is suspicious. Normally programs aren't packed and don't force the sandbox into lengthy emulation. Do realize no scanner issued any warning, the file can very well be harmless. Caution is advised, however.)
Packers detected: PE_PATCH
Scanner results
AntiVir Found nothing
Avast Found nothing
AVG Antivirus Found nothing
BitDefender Found nothing
ClamAV Found nothing
Dr.Web Found nothing
F-Prot Antivirus Found nothing
Fortinet Found nothing
Kaspersky Anti-Virus Found nothing
mks_vir Found nothing
NOD32 Found nothing
Norman Virus Control Found nothing
VBA32 Found nothing


Regards and thanks,

Jonat

Hello Oldtimer,

Further to my previous post, I decided to test a number of other suspicious files on Jotti's Malware site, and found that about 6 of them were infected !

I am left with one file which I cannot get rid of, it refuses to be deleted or moved, being reported as :
"Cannot delete dev32: It is being used by another person or program.
Close any programs that might be using the file and try again"
I have tried this, but still cannot delete it. The file is reported by Jotti's as set out below. I've also posted a new HJT log in case that may help.

Can you help ?

File: dev32.exe
Status: INFECTED/MALWARE (Note: this file has been scanned before. Therefore, this file's scan results will not be stored in the database)
Packers detected: UPX
Scanner results
AntiVir Found nothing
Avast Found nothing
AVG Antivirus Found nothing
BitDefender Found Trojan.Agent.CA
ClamAV Found Trojan.Agent-51
Dr.Web Found Trojan.Pigmail
F-Prot Antivirus Found nothing
Fortinet Found W32/Bagz.DLOAD
Kaspersky Anti-Virus Found Trojan.Win32.Agent.ca
mks_vir Found Trojan.Agent.Ca
NOD32 Found Win32/Bagz.H
Norman Virus Control Found nothing
VBA32 Found Trojan.Win32.Agent.ca


Regards,

Jonat

Hi Jonat. Just to make sure that dev32.exe is the only one Iwould like you to run another scan before we take care of anything.

Download rkfiles.zip and unzip it to its own permanent folder.

Important! Reboot in SAFE MODE !!

Start in Safe Mode Using the F8 method:
  • Restart the computer in Safe Mode.
  • As soon as BIOS is loaded begin tapping the F8 key until the Advanced Options menu appears.
  • Use the arrow keys to select the Safe Mode menu item.
  • Press the Enter key.
Locate the rkfiles.bat file and double-click it to run it. It will start scanning your computer and could take a little while so be patient. When the DOS window closes, reboot back to normal mode.

Post the contents of C:\log.txt back here and I will review it when it comes in.

Hello Oldtimer,

Thanks for picking up.

I had already deleted dev32.exe (by booting into Safe Mode) before picking up your reply. Plus some other files which Jotti's detected. These were :
loader_exe.dll
huyvam.exe
loader32.exe


The results of the scan using RKfiles is :

PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL FILES FOUND BY THIS METHOD ARE NOT BAD FILES, THERE MIGHT BE LEGIT FILES LISTED AND PLEASE BE CAREFUL WHILE FIXING. IF YOU ARE UNSURE OF WHAT IT IS LEAVE THEM ALONE.
Files Found in system Folder............

C:\WINDOWS\system32\dfrg.msc: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAQAAAAAwGpEc213

Hi Jonat. Things are looking better. We have a couple of entries to still clean up so let's do that.

Part 1
  • Click Start>Run, type services.msc into the Open editbox and click the Ok button.
  • Locate the Provides three management service service and click the Stop button.
  • In the Startup type dropdown select Disabled.
  • Click the Apply button and then the Ok button.
  • Close the Services window
Part 2
  • Click Start>Run, type cmd into the Open editbox and click the Ok button.
  • Copy/paste the line below into the Command Prompt window and press the Enter key:
    • sc delete FreeBSD
  • Close the Command Prompt window
OK. Reboot your computer normally, start HijackThis and perform a new scan. Use the Add Reply button to post your new log file back here along with details of any problems you encountered performing the above steps and I will review it when it comes in. This should be our last log and then we can finish up.

Cheers.

OT

Hi Jonat. Now that's a clean looking log. Congratulations! How are things running? Any problems?

We have a couple of last steps to perform and then you're all set.

First, let's reset your hidden/system files and folders. System files are hidden for a reason and we don't want to have them openly available and susceptible to accidental deletion.* Click Start.
* Open My Computer.
* Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
* Select the View tab.
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading UNSELECT Show hidden files and folders.
* CHECK the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Click Yes to confirm.
* Click OK.
Next, let's clean your restore points and set a new one:

Reset and Re-enable your System Restore to remove infected files that have been backed up by Windows. The files in System Restore are protected to prevent any programs from changing those files. This is the only way to clean these files: (You will lose all previous restore points which are likely to be infected)1. Turn off System Restore.On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.
2. Restart your computer.

3. Turn ON System Restore.On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
UN-Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.
[/list]System Restore will now be active again.

Now that you are clean, to help protect your computer in the future I recommend that you get the following free programs:
  • SpywareBlaster to help prevent spyware from installing in the first place.
  • SpywareGuard to catch and block spyware before it can execute.
  • IESpy-Ad to block access to malicious websites so you cannot be redirected to them from an infected site or email.
You should also have a good firewall. Here are 3 free ones available for personal use:and a good antivirus like the one you are currently using. It is critical to have both a firewall and an anti-virus application and to keep them updated.

To keep your operating system up to date visit monthly. And to keep your system clean run these free malware scanners
weekly, and be aware of what emails you open and websites you visit.

To learn more about how to protect yourself while on the internet read this article by Tony Klien: So how did I get infected in the first place?

Have a safe and happy computing day!

OT
