Hello,

Well, the starts at 1857 last night, whilst browsing the Internet with Internet Explorer the PC warned that the firewall was down (this was only for a 30 secs max whilst I turned it back on). Then, suddenly the taskbar filled with random Internet Explorer pop-ups (casinos etc) then an "Anti Virus 2009" window appeared as a genuine application window wanting to accept some terms and conditions, yes no. I clicked the red X to close it. So I closed all the pop-ups, then the PC froze completely, ceasing to function then got a BSOD.

I started the PC again and told AVG to do a scan of the whole PC, AVG complained that its update file was missing but did the scan regardless. About 2 mins into the scan AVG......exe stopped working. So i told it to do another scan, the PC froze again and the only thing to do was to hold down the reset button and boot up again. It took several attempts to try and get to a usable desktop, eventually I did and told AVG to do a scan. It found 3 Gadcom.exe and a registry key referencing to it, and a whole load of tracking cookies. The virus deleted all the system restore points as that was one of the first things I was going to do.
AVG freezed up about 9 mins into that scan - I had to manually restart the PC.

So I booted into Safe Mode and told AVG to do a scan, It found another few Gadcom.exe's and something like Sheuj2.CFV. I left that on overnight and woke up, booted into normal mode - It froze on "Windows is starting up...." but on the second attempt it got in, loaded up IE and the virus is still here - every location you try to go to on IE causes a popup to the Anti Virus 2008 or Anti Virus 2009 web sites - and a dialog box asking Yes No to get free Anti Virus or something,

So I download MBAM on my laptop, put it on pen drive and tried to install it on the infected PC, when I run it nothing happens, in Safe Mode and in normal mode. About 10 mins into using the PC it freezes up.

Help Me!!! Please its Christmas and I need the PC!

Hello Rigel and many thanks!

I managed to get MBAM starting by renaming the exe to a .com. It found, in total accross multiple scans 103 trojans and has removed them, although 2 of them (one is Trojan.Vundo) keep reappearing every time they get removed, this has happended about 4 times. I currently have VundoFix running to try and remove them. I will post the logs here If Vundo has not gone after that. AVG scans and does not find Vundo whereas Malwarebytes can find Vundo?

Thanks,

I think what you will need to do in order to remove those last two issues is a two step process:

1. Run in this order MBAM, then SpyBot S&D, then Malwarebytes again.
2. Before running MBAM the second time, disconnect your network cable (disable wireless) and turn off the PC, then turn back on. Run MBAM again after the computer starts up, then restart again.

After the second restart you can reconnect your network connection. The Vundo trojan embeds itself into your registry as a run once entry and will reinstall itself every time you start up if you have an internet connection.
I would never ask a person to do something that I wouldn't do myself.

Please print out and follow these instructions: "How to use SDFix". <- This program is for Windows 2000/XP ONLY.
When using this tool, you must use the Administrator's account or an account with "Administrative rights"
  • Disconnect from the Internet and temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any real time protection programs before performing a scan.
  • When done, the SDFix report log will open in notepad and automatically be saved in the SDFix folder as Report.txt.
  • If SDFix is unable to run after rebooting from Safe Mode, run SDFix in either Mode, and type F, then press Enter for it to finish the final stage and produce the report.
  • Please copy and paste the contents of Report.txt in your next reply.
  • Be sure to renable you anti-virus and and other security programs before connecting to the Internet.
-- If the computer has been infected with the VirusAlert! malware warning from the clock and the Start Menu icons or drives are not visible, open the SDFix folder, right-click on either the XP_VirusAlert_Repair.inf or W2K VirusAlert_Repair.inf (depending on your version of Windows) and select Install from the Context menu. Then reboot to apply the changes.

Tried that and it didnt work both the same infections were found in the same place after SpyBot scan (which said it found and and removed Vundo trojans) and after Malwarebytes with no internet connection. What next :thumbsup:?

Awesome...
AndyNeedHelp, I also need to post a warning for you. The TDSS infection is very nasty.
IMPORTANT NOTE: One or more of the identified infections was related to a rootkit component. Rootkits and backdoor Trojan are very dangerous because they use advanced techniques (backdoors) as a means of accessing a computer system that bypasses security mechanisms and steal sensitive information which they send back to the hacker. Many rootkits can hook into the Windows 32-bit kernel, and patch several APIs to hide new registry keys and files they install. Remote attackers use backdoor Trojans and rootkits as part of an exploit to gain unauthorized access to a computer and take control of it without your knowledge.

If your computer was used for online banking, has credit card information or other sensitive data on it, all passwords should be changed immediately to include those used for banking, email, eBay, paypal and online forums. You should consider them to be compromised. They should be changed by using a different computer and not the infected one. If not, an attacker may get the new passwords and transaction information. Banking and credit card institutions should be notified of the possible security breach. Because your computer was compromised please read How Do I Handle Possible Identify Theft, Internet Fraud and CC Fraud?

Although the rootkit was identified and removed, your PC has likely been compromised and there is no way to be sure the computer can ever be trusted again. It is dangerous and incorrect to assume that because the rootkit has been removed the computer is now secure. In some instances an infection may have caused so much damage to your system that it cannot be completely cleaned or repaired. The malware may leave so many remnants behind that security tools cannot find them. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of malware, the best course of action is to wipe the drive clean, reformat and reinstall the OS. Please read:

"When should I re-format? How should I reinstall?"
"Help: I Got Hacked. Now What Do I Do?"
"Where to draw the line? When to recommend a format and reinstall?"

Should you decide not to follow that advice, we will do our best to help clean the computer of any infections but we cannot guarantee it to be trustworthy or that the removal will be successful.

Let me know how you wish to proceed. If you want to continue, the scans we have done will have you ready for the HJT forum.

Oh Gosh, Malwarebytes reports both infected registry keys present after SDFix. Here is the log, I dont think reformatting and reinstall is an option as I dont think I have the XP install disk. What next?

Then the HJT forum is the best bet...

Please follow this guide from step (6). Post a HJT log to the HJT forum and a Team member will be along to help you as soon as possible. You may wish to post a link back to this topic to see what was discussed thus far.

If you need any help with the guide, please let me know. Best wishes - you are in good hands...

Ok, I have done the HJT and posted it in the other forum. Many thanks for the help over the past few days, I hope it will get all sorted out.

Is this still potencially a very big problem as only registry keys are affected and the actual executable and dll virus files are quarantined and/or deleted? I am I correct in assuming that its only remnants that are left behind?

Also, about TDSS I havnt done any financial or confidential activity on the PC in a few weeks, and not since the PC has become infected, no passwords are set to "Remember Me" or "Auto Fill", does that still me that they are compramised?

Hello AndyNeedHelp,

Also, about TDSS I havnt done any financial or confidential activity on the PC in a few weeks, and not since the PC has become infected, no passwords are set to "Remember Me" or "Auto Fill", does that still me that they are compromised?


I can't say for sure, it would depend on when the infection got aboard. It is best to err on the side of caution and assume all passwords have been compromised.

Now that you have a log posted here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/189037/vundo-infection/ 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 in 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 EXTREMELY 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. Good luck with your log.

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:
