On a secondary computer, I noticed a few weeks ago that there was internet activity, even when the computer was idle and all major applications closed. I noticed the issue because the DSL modem light for that connection was blinking, and the connection was slowed on other computers (to the point that I would receive a time-out error, "Page Load Error" in Firefox, maybe 40% of the time when that secondary computer was connected to the network, and those issues would go away if the computer was turned off or the network cable unplugged). I did a bit more research and saw lsass.exe and services.exe were the applications that were active, using 2-3% CPU usage in the background when the network cable was plugged in, and stopping when unplugged. I also noticed that it seemed like these applications were trying to connect to random webpages, when I viewed the active connections through a small app whose name escapes me.

I ran spybot, which found 3 issues: "Zlob.Downloader" at system32/crypts.dll "Win32Exchanger.ch" at system32/CbEvtSvc.exe and in the registry and "Win32.Injecter.adv" in the registry. I then ran ad-aware which found "WIN32.TROJANDROPPER" at LocalService\Application Data\638097440.exe and \Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\UAZHWDRL\ftp[1].exe and at a restore point, "FAKEALERT" at system32\config\systemprofile\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Desktop.htt "WIN32.TROJAN.AGENT" at system32\n.ini, Program Files\Internet Explorer\setupapi.dll, in the registry, and at a restore point. Everything scans clean now, I believe, and I'm not sure this phantom internet activity is necessarily malicious. So how can I find out if this is malicious or not? How can I find out what service is trying to make these connections and for what purpose? Thanks for any help, info!

We can do a few scans and take a look at your traffic.

The process of cleaning your computer may require temporarily disabliling some security programs. If you are using SpyBot Search and Destroy, please refer to Note 2 at the bottom of this page.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself.
  • Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen:
  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note:
-- If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

Note 2:
-- MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes (like Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere with the fix or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please disable such programs until disinfection is complete or permit them to allow the changes. To disable these programs, please view this topic: How To Temporarily Disable Your Anti-virus, Firewall And Anti-malware Programs

Do you use a firewall? If so, which one? What version of Windows are you using?

My OS is XP SP2. I am running windows firewall and have a DSL router. The program ran, found maybe 49 infected items, and reboot. On reboot, scan disk ran and deleted 3 files (desktop.ini, a0134794.ini) and at this moment I am no longer getting the unknown background internet connectivity stuff. That's clearly a good sign so far. Thanks for your time and help you've already put into this. Here is the log:

Progress is good! Let's continue...

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.

Please update and rerun malwarebytes and post a fresh log.

Create a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore. Since this is a protected directory your tools cannot access to delete these files, they sometimes can reinfect your system if you accidentally use an old restore point. Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will help prevent this and enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name, then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point.
  • Go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "Ok"
  • Disk Cleanup will scan your files for several minutes, then open.
  • Click the "More Options" Tab.
  • Click the "Clean up" button under System Restore.
  • Click Ok. You will be prompted with "Are you sure you want to delete all but the most recent restore point?"
  • Click Yes, then click Ok.
  • Click Yes again when prompted with "Are you sure you want to perform these actions?"
  • Disk Cleanup will remove the files and close automatically.
Please rerun suoerantispyware... post a fresh log.

Let me know how things are running

Everything seems to be running fine, but I said that after the first scan as well ;) Thanks a lot for your help so far. Here is that log:

I think we got it! :thumbsup:

If there are no more problems or signs of infection, you should Create a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore. Since this is a protected directory your tools cannot access to delete these files, they sometimes can reinfect your system if you accidentally use an old restore point.

Great, thanks so very much. It's odd that it takes so many programs to find it all, but I'm sure it is worth it in the long run. Thanks again.

One more thing. I'm sure this is a frequently asked question, so perhaps there is just a link you could direct me to, but I'm wondering what I can do to keep myself clean. Here is what I was doing: using spyware blaster, blocking pages directly via the hosts file from MVPS, and running ad-aware and spybot. Obviously that wasn't enough (and it might have something to do with who else uses this computer). Should I forget about ad-aware and spybot and instead run SUPERAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes regularly?
