Infected with sowar.vbs

Good day!

My pc is infected with sowar.vbs. Everytime I open my IE browser, it automatically directs to redtube.com though I use firefox regularly.

I use this computer for my work so I always insert memory stick (USB flash drive) to my USB port to transfer data and file from other computers. I think that I get this infection through this. In 'My Computer', I cannot open the memory stick using 'double-click' on mouse because it gives error message of " Can not find script file "F:\sowar.vbs"." so I open this through the address bar or auto-play.

How can I keep my PC safe even I insert a memory stick with infections?

Thanks in advance!

Here is my log:

Welcome to the BleepingComputer Forums.

Since it has been a few days since you scanned your computer with HijackThis, we will need a new HijackThis log. If you have not already downloaded Random's System Information Tool (RSIT), please download Random's System Information Tool (RSIT) by random/random which includes a HijackThis log and save it to your desktop. If you have RSIT already on your computer, please run it again.
  • Double click on RSIT.exe to run RSIT.
  • Click Continue at the disclaimer screen.
  • Please post the contents of log.txt.
Thank you for your patience.

Please see Preparation Guide for use before posting about your potential Malware problem.

If you have already posted this log at another forum or if you decide to seek help at another forum, please let us know. There is a shortage of helpers and taking the time of two volunteer helpers means that someone else may not be helped.

While we are working on your HijackThis log, please:
  • Reply to this thread; do not start another!
  • Do not make any changes on your computer during the cleaning process or download/add programs on your computer unless instructed to do so.
  • Do not run any other tool until instructed to do so!
  • Let me know if any of the links do not work or if any of the tools do not work.
  • Tell me about problems or symptoms that occur during the fix.
  • Do not run any other programs or open any other windows while doing a fix.
  • Ask any questions that you have regarding the fix(es), the infection(s), the performance of your computer, etc.

Step 1

Is this a business computer?
If it is, are you the domain administrator? If you are not, have you informed your domain administrator, (business manager, Systems Analyst, or Information Technology (IT) Specialist)?

I ask because I do not help in cleaning business or corporate computers for several reasons:
  • There may be restrictions and modifications installed on such machines that could be damaged or altered by the actions we take to remove Malware.
  • Any infection could jump terminals in a computer network.
  • There may also be legal issues regarding any loss of business data that I do not wish to deal with.
  • Some people who come here use their computers for work, and the computers may contain the patient records of a physician or the financial records of an accountant's clients or credit card and bank account information of their employer's customers.
  • There may be tremendous risks and legal liability for such users for not fully securing the computer. We will not know this unless we ask. We do not want to be accidentally putting those we help in vulnerable positions for law suits.
  • Business factors outweigh technical factors in making the reformat and reinstall decision. Sometimes friends give missing CDs or lack of expertise as a reason for not doing a reformat and reinstall.
  • The cost of replacing missing Windows XP and MS Office CDs and getting an Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer to come in for 3 hours to do the reinstall and apply all the critical updates, is trivial compared with the potential cost of a multi-million dollar lawsuit for breach of trust if confidential client or patient information is disclosed.
  • In specific situations where highly confidential information about others is on the computer, and a backdoor virus or trojan is found, we are helping people more by identifying that they have a backdoor trojan which puts them in a particularly vulnerable situation and sending them to seek local professional help from a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer or Certified Information Systems Security Professional or Global Information Assurance Certification Certified Security Expert or Certified Computing Professional or Internet Service Provider than we would be trying to fully resolve their problems long distance.
Step 2

The item(s) below indicate(s) you have installed BitTorrent DNA.

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [BitTorrent DNA] "C:\Program Files\DNA\btdna.exe"

Since the nature of P2P programs are counter productive to restoring your PC to a healthy state, we ask that you remove P2P file sharing programs prior to our providing you with malware removal assistance. Even the safest P2P file sharing programs that do not contain bundled spyware, still expose you to risks because of the very nature of the P2P file sharing process. By default, most P2P file sharing programs are configured to automatically launch at startup. They are also configured to allow other P2P users on the same network open access to a shared directory on your computer.

The people who design and distribute malware will use any method to infect personal computers to make use of their stored data or machine power for further propagation of the malware files. A popular method is the use of file-sharing tools as a tremendous amount of prospective victims can be reached through it. Many very malicious worms and trojans, such as the Storm Worm, target and spread across P2P files sharing networks because of their known vulnerabilities.
To remove the P2P program:
  • Click Start > Control Panel.
  • In Control Panel, double-click Add or Remove Programs.
  • In Add or Remove Programs, highlight , click Remove.
  • Close the Add or Remove Programs and the Control Panel windows.
  • Using Windows Explorer (Windows key+e), search for the folder. If the program folder is still there, select/highlight . DELETE it. (File > Delete.) If Windows is not installed on the C drive, replace C:\ with the appropriate drive letter.
  • Close Windows Explorer.
There is a Video showing how to uninstall a program (Grinler) detailing how to add or remove program in Windows for those who find a visual aid appealing. NOTE: Take care when answering any questions posed by an uninstaller. Some questions may be worded to deceive you into keeping the program.

I am not asking you to do remove the P2P program(s) without giving you good reasons for doing so.
  • P2P programs form a direct conduit on to your computer.
  • P2P security measures are easily circumvented.
  • Some P2P programs will share everything on the computer with anyone by default. If your P2P program is not configured correctly, you may be sharing more files than you realize.
  • There have been cases where people's passwords, address books and other personal, private, and financial details have been exposed to the file sharing network by a badly configured program.
  • P2P programs have always been a target of malware writers. There are more Viruses, Worms and Trojans being distributed with the downloaded files.
  • P2P programs connected to a network can be used to spread malware, share private documents, or use the file server to both store and forward malware.
  • Many of the files in P2P networks are copyrighted and legal action could result.
  • Pedophiles can use P2P communities to distribute child porn materials or attempt to make contact with children.
  • This article from InfoWorld, Seattle Man Arrested For P To P ID Theft, illustrates perfectly the dangers of a poorly configured P2P program.
  • Many of the programs come bundled with other unwanted programs, but even the ones free of any bundled software are not safe to use.
  • When you use them, you are downloading software from an unknown source directly onto your computer bypassing your Firewall and Anti-Virus software. Many of these Downloads are being targeted to carry infections.
For more information, please read Malware Removal Forum's Policy regarding P2P programs. P2P (peer to peer) file sharing programs must be removed.

References for the risk of these programs are:If you continue to use P2P programs, you will probably get infected again.

Please uninstall all P2P programs and post a new HijackThis log.
