Hi there;

I sent a message a couple of weeks ago -

I haven't had a reply, yet, so I wonder if I can re-post my log and maybe one of your helpers might be free to have a look at it.
Any help is much appreciated.

Thank you,

Andreas




Problem summary:

I use a shared computer

My part, i.e. Administrator part, is infected with following warning message:

"Windows warning message
Warning! Spyware detected on your computer!
Warning!Win32/Adware.Virtumonde detected on your computer
Warning! Win32/Privacy/Remover.M64 detected on your computer
Install an antivirus or spyware remover to clean your computer
Please activate your antivirus software to clean your computer"

I contact you from my partners unaffected part of the computer (no administrator rights, so can't install programs from there) where internet works as normal !

I have been able to download the latest Hijackthis software onto my partners part of the computer, then move it to an USB stick, log off as my partner, log on as myself, and then uninstall an older ( 2005 ) version of Hijackthis and install the current version of Hijackthis from the USB stick...

...I have then been able to create a Log from my infected part of the computer (previously my part appeared completely locked, but apart from the internet it seems to be functioning sufficiently now to uninstall/install programs and create the log.

But the Internet access is not working, so I'm sending this from my partners login. Hope this makes sense.

Here's the Log taken from the infected/administrator part of the computer:

Hello Andreas G

Welcome to BleepingComputer :thumbsup:
========================
I am closing your original topic and we will stay with this one.
But in the future please do not post multiple topics. :)

Before running a new scan let's clean out the temporary folders.

Download ATF Cleaner to your Desktop.
  • Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
  • Click Select All found at the bottom of the list.
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
If you use Firefox browser, do this also:
  • Click Firefox at the top and choose Select All from the list.
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
  • NOTE : If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
If you use Opera browser, do this also:
  • Click Opera at the top and choose Select All from the list.
  • Close ALL Internet browsers (very important).
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
  • NOTE : If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.
===========================================
Download OTScanIt.exe to your Desktop and double-click on it to extract the files. It will create a folder named OTScanIt on your desktop.

Note: You must be logged on to the system with an account that has Administrator privileges to run this program.
  • Close ALL OTHER PROGRAMS.
  • Open the OTScanIt folder and double-click on OTScanIt.exe to start the program (if you are running on Vista then right-click the program and choose Run as Administrator).
  • In the Drivers section click on Non-Microsoft.
  • Under Additional Scans click the checkboxes in front of the following items to select them:
    • Reg - BotCheck
      File - Additional Folder Scans
      FIle - Lop check
      File - Purity Scan
      Rootkit Search -Yes
      Drivers -Non Microsoft
  • Do not change any other settings.
  • Now click the Run Scan button on the toolbar.
  • Let it run unhindered until it finishes.
  • When the scan is complete Notepad will open with the report file loaded in it.
  • Click the Format menu and make sure that Wordwrap is not checked. If it is then click on it to uncheck it.
Use the Add Reply button and Copy/Paste the information back here. I will review it when it comes in. Make sure that the first line is code with brackets around it [] and that the last line is /code with brackets around it [].

If, after posting, the last line is not <End of Report> then the log is too big to fit into a single post and you will need to split it into multiple posts or attach it as a file.
Please do not pm for help, post it in the forums instead.

If I am helping you and have not responded for 48 hours please send me a pm as I don't always get notifications.

My help is always free, however, if you would like to make a donation to me for the help I have provided please click here Posted Image

Start OTScanIt. Copy/Paste the information in the codebox below into the pane where it says "Paste fix here" and then click the Run Fix button.


[Kill Explorer]
[Unregister Dlls]
[Registry - Non-Microsoft Only]
< Run [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\] > -> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
YN -> sysrest32.exe -> %SystemRoot%\system32\sysrest32.exe [C:\WINDOWS\system32\sysrest32.exe]
[Files/Folders - Created Within 30 days]
NY -> tdssinit.dll -> %SystemRoot%\System32\tdssinit.dll
NY -> tdssservers.dat -> %SystemRoot%\System32\tdssservers.dat
[Files/Folders - Modified Within 30 days]
NY -> tdssinit.dll -> %SystemRoot%\System32\tdssinit.dll
NY -> tdssservers.dat -> %SystemRoot%\System32\tdssservers.dat
[Empty Temp Folders]
[Start Explorer]

The fix should only take a very short time. When the fix is completed a message box will popup either telling you that it is finished, or that a reboot is needed to complete the fix. If the fix is complete, click the Ok button and Notepad will open with a log of actions taken during the fix. Post that log back here in your next reply.
If a reboot is required, click the "Yes" button to reboot the machine. After the reboot, OTScanIt will finish moving any files that could not be moved during the fix and NotePad will open with the final results at that time. Post that log back here in your next reply.
========================================================
AFter that Please visit this webpage for download links, and instructions for running the tool:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix


Please ensure you read this guide carefully and install the Recovery Console first.

The Windows Recovery Console will allow you to boot up into a special recovery (repair) mode. This allows us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware. It is a simple procedure that will only take a few moments of your time.

Once installed, you should see a blue screen prompt that says:

The Recovery Console was successfully installed.

Please continue as follows:
  • Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.

  • Click Yes to allow ComboFix to continue scanning for malware.
When the tool is finished, it will produce a report for you.

Please include the following reports for further review, and so we may continue cleansing the system:

C:\ComboFix.txt
New HijackThis log.

Please do not pm for help, post it in the forums instead.

Hi Kahdah

I attach 2 Hijack this logs, one from the 11th and one from the 16th (today) even though I haven't spent much time using the computer over recent days - maybe you notice any changes. I also used Norton Anti Virus and Ad-Aware to check computer in between, Ad-Aware found about a 100 privacy threats each time - but maybe that's normal (?) and 2 major threats which it said it removed successfully.

I wonder whether I should run the ATF Cleaner and/or MALWAREBYTES from time to time in the future to keep the computer clean.

Generally, the computer seems to be fully functional again, if a bit slow (but that could be related to fluctuations in connection speed which we experience in London anyway).
When the computer got infected my background theme had changed from black to blue ...and I always had the "Warning ..." window on top, the moment I logged on - I have now changed the background back to black and it stays that way when I switch on/off. The warning message does not appear any more.

What do you think ?

Your logs look clean. :)

Use a Firewall:

Install and use a firewall with outbound protection
While the firewall built into Windows XP is adequate to protect you from incoming attacks, it will not be much help in alerting you to programs already on your PC attempting to connect to remote servers
I therefore strongly recommend that you install one of the following free firewalls: Sunbelt Free Firewall or Zonealarm
See Bleepingcomputer's excellent tutorial to help using and understanding a firewall here
Note: You should only have one firewall installed at a time. Having more than one antivirus program installed at once is likely to cause conflicts and may well decrease your overall protection as well as seriously impairing the performance of your PC.


=============================
Delete\uninstall anything else that we have used.

System Restore
Then I will need you to reset your System Restore points.
The link below shows how to create a clean restore point.

=====================================
After that your log is clean. :thumbsup:
