Still infected with Vundo.gen.i?

Hi all,

I am new here and trying to follow all the rules, please advise if this is the wrong place for this topic.

My computer has been infected with Vundo.gen.i and possibly others. McAfee has been fairly useless in fixing the issue, it let this thing waltz right in and update my registry and then it was not really on the ball about identifying all the processes spawned by the original trojan, and then once it finally found the original offender (long after me as a dumb human had figured out what the problem file was) it just kept quarantining it. This caused massive issues on start up because the trojan was still present on my system and was connecting itself as a module to winlogon.exe, explorer.exe, and jusched.exe and causing explorer to be all corrupted and crash.

I am at wits end with this thing. Being at wits end caused me to do a bad, I ran Combofix without being told to do so. I know now you're not supposed to do that, but at the time I was distressed and about 5 minutes away from simply re-imaging my drive.

The infection appears to be gone. The awful original trojan file is gone out of my system32 folder and I've been using this browser now for at least 15 minutes without one of those hideous fake antispyware or casino ads popping up. However, I just heard the noise that accompanies an error box, but I don't see an error box. This scares me, because it is suggesting that some rogue process is still doing evil things in the background.

Would it be possible to get some help to figure out whether this thing is really gone or not?

Thanks,
Lisa

Hi Lisa, please run Mbam and post the scan log,..

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. Alternatively, you can update through MBAM's interface from a clean computer, copy the definitions (rules.ref) located in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from that system to a usb stick or CD and then copy it to the infected machine.
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. MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.

Hello Lisa, we are going to do 3 scans next. ATF,SAS and MBam
ATF
Please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune & save it to your desktop.
  • Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
  • Under Main "Select Files to Delete" choose: Select All.
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
  • If you use Firefox browser click Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
    If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
  • If you use Opera browser click Opera at the top and choose: Select All
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
    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.
Note: On Vista, "Windows Temp" is disabled. To empty "Windows Temp" ATF-Cleaner must be "Run as an Administrator".


SAS this one will probably be long.
Please download and scan with SUPERAntiSpyware Free
  • Double-click SUPERAntiSypware.exe and use the default settings for installation.
  • An icon will be created on your desktop. Double-click that icon to launch the program.
  • If asked to update the program definitions, click "Yes". If not, update the definitions before scanning by selecting "Check for Updates". (If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here. Double-click on the hyperlink for Download Installer and save SASDEFINITIONS.EXE to your desktop. Then double-click on SASDEFINITIONS.EXE to install the definitions.)
  • In the Main Menu, click the Preferences... button.
  • Click the "General and Startup" tab, and under Start-up Options, make sure "Start SUPERAntiSpyware when Windows starts" box is unchecked.
  • Click the "Scanning Control" tab, and under Scanner Options, make sure the following are checked (leave all others unchecked):
    • Close browsers before scanning.
    • Scan for tracking cookies.
    • Terminate memory threats before quarantining.
  • Click the "Close" button to leave the control center screen and exit the program.
  • Do not run a scan just yet.
Reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".

Scan with SUPERAntiSpyware as follows:
  • Launch the program and back on the main screen, under "Scan for Harmful Software" click Scan your computer.
  • On the left, make sure you check C:\Fixed Drive.
  • On the right, under "Complete Scan", choose Perform Complete Scan and click "Next".
  • After the scan is complete, a Scan Summary box will appear with potentially harmful items that were detected. Click "OK".
  • Make sure everything has a checkmark next to it and click "Next".
  • A notification will appear that "Quarantine and Removal is Complete". Click "OK" and then click the "Finish" button to return to the main menu.
  • If asked if you want to reboot, click "Yes" and reboot normally.
  • To retrieve the removal information after reboot, launch SUPERAntispyware again.
    • Click Preferences, then click the Statistics/Logs tab.
    • Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log.
    • If there are several logs, click the current dated log and press View log. A text file will open in your default text editor.
    • Please copy and paste the Scan Log results in your next reply.
  • Click Close to exit the program.

Now MBam like this
Open MBAM in normal mode and click Update tab, select Check for Updates,when done
click Scanner tab,select Quick scan and scan.
After scan click Remove Selected, Post new scan log and Reboot.

Post back 2 logs and tell me how the PC is running now.

Hi again.

Right after I posted the log in my previous reply, I heard the error window sound again but didn't see an error window. This happened yesterday as well. Then I immediately rebooted as the directions stated.

When I had run the MBAM I set my McAfee to simply log registry changes and not alert. I went to go reinstate the alerts after the reboot, and I saw an entry in the log that occured about the same time I heard the error window sound.

The rule type was "File" and the process that changed this was svchost, and the version was C:\WINDOWS\Tasks\camjdqmw.job'C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32

I checked out that camjdqmw.job task and it's set to run every hour and the task is run C:\WINDOWS\system32\byXPJcya.dll''AddRefActCtx.
I don't have that byXPJcya.dll anymore. Is this something normal? Or is this stuff all some leftover from a previous infection? It looks suspicious.

Sorry if I'm being paranoid, but everything looks suspicious these days.

Thanks for the help, boopme.
Lisa

Hi boopme,

I ran the ATF and then the SAS. I ran SAS in Safe Mode and it found 8 infected registry keys and a slew of tracking cookies which it said it removed. I rebooted normally when it asked me to, and then I restarted it to go retrieve the log. Unfortunately there are no logs listed as available. When I look at the main page of the console where it states when the last scan occured it says 00/00/0000 at 00:00 AM. It doesn't have a record of the scan that I just completed.

What should I do from here? Should I just continue and run the MBam script?

Thanks,
Lisa

I found the SAS log. I had ended up logged in as a different user when I went to Safe Mode and the log was in that users directory. Here it is, I will run the MBam now and post in the next reply.

One additional thing,

When I ran ComboFix without having been told to do so, it created a Windows Recovery Console. Is it OK to leave this as is?

Thanks,
Lisa

The computer is running fine now and everything appears OK.

I'm not seeing any of the symptoms of the Vundo infection.

The only item that seems to be awry is this scheduled task.

C:\WINDOWS\Tasks\camjdqmw.job'C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32
I checked out that camjdqmw.job task and it's set to run every hour and the task is run C:\WINDOWS\system32\byXPJcya.dll''AddRefActCtx.

The byXPJcya dll is no longer present so it can't run it, but it does try every hour and it is trying to change something in the registry. Can this just be deleted? None of the 6 scans I performed identified it as dangerous.

Thanks,
Lisa

Hi Lisa.. Yes that can be deleted. it was where the malware was hiding. Let me know.

If it's giving you an error message you may remove it this way.
Its not unusual to receive such an error after using specialized fix tools.

A "Cannot find...", "Could not run...", "Error loading... or "specific module could not be found" message is usually related to malware that was set to run at startup but has been deleted. Windows is trying to load this file but cannot locate it since the file was mostly likely removed during an anti-virus or anti-malware scan. However, an associated orphaned registry entry remains and is telling Windows to load the file when you boot up. Since the file no longer exists, Windows will display an error message. You need to remove this registry entry so Windows stops searching for the file when it loads.

To resolve this, download Autoruns, search for the related entry and then delete it.
Create a new folder on your hard drive called AutoRuns (C:\AutoRuns) and extract (unzip) the file there. (click here if you're not sure how to do this.)
Open the folder and double-click on autoruns.exe to launch it.
Please be patient as it scans and populates the entries.
When done scanning, it will say Ready at the bottom.
Scroll through the list and look for a startup entry related to the file(s) in the error message.
Right-click on the entry and choose delete.
Reboot your computer and see if the startup error returns.

This wasn't a startup error, this was a task that ran on the hour.

I don't think it matters anymore as I just checked back in the tasks folder and it's not there anymore. It's gone now.

Computer is still working fine. As far as I can tell, I'm OK now.

Thank you again for all your help. I truly appreciate your efforts and quick response.
