Hi, my computer was infected recently with the virus that seems to be going around over the past couple weeks. It's a combination of virtumonde, vundo, seneka rootkit and a couple other things tossed in for good measure I suppose. After running malware, combofix, sdfix, lspfix, gmer, goored, and atf cleaner, I THINK I finally got rid of everything. However just to be sure I'd like assistance with reviewing my log and anything else that may be needed. Signs I have the virus were the popup in the lower right side similar to the new updates popup, only this had a red circle with an x in the middle saying my computer had been infected and that I needed to run an antivirus program, very generic in the wording, and later my background changed to black with a warning message in the middle. Spybot worked intially then stopped working after the 3rd time using it, given me an invalid floating pointer pop up message over and over again, so I just uninstalled that completely. For awhile I couldn't even get back on to the desktop, no mouse or keyboard activity, things looked pretty bad. Then finally it began coming around slowly after numerous safe mode reboots, using windows recovery, last known good log in, and some luck and prayers added in. Please let me know if I should try anything else just to be sure this is gone. The rootkit seemed to be the toughest to get rid of since some files kept regenerating. Here's my DDS log. As a sidenote, does ANYONE know how people are getting this??? Seems to be multiplying exponentially but I haven't read one message that mentions how it originated....I personally have no idea how I got it. It just started popping up...the last website I was one was the main page of www.yahoo.com but I don't think it's related to any specific website or browser, since I know it's affecting IE and Mozilla users. Not sure about opera, safari or others though. Thanks for your help!

While it mentions Kaspersky in the above, I don't have access to it's log since that scan was run by the IT support at my workplace. Thanks for your help!
Attached is the attach.txt file as well as the HJT log.

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help. Here at Bleeping Computer we get overwhelmed at times, and we are trying our best to keep up. Please note that your topic was not intentionally overlooked. Our mission is to help everyone in need, but sometimes it takes just a little longer to get to every request for help.

If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know. If not please perform the following steps below so we can have a look at the current condition of your machine. If you have not done so, include a description of your problem, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

Upon completing the steps below another staff member will review and take the steps necessary with you to get your machine back in working order clean and free of malware.

If you have already posted a DDS log, please do so again, as your situation may have changed.
Use the 'Add Reply' and add the new log to this thread.
Also please explain your problem as fully as possible. Each little detail will help in getting your system cleaned up and functional again.

Thanks and again sorry for the delay.

We need to see some information about what is happening in your machine. Please perform the following scans:

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.

* Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links. Save it to your desktop.

* Double click on the DDS icon, allow it to run.
* A small box will open, with an explaination about the tool. No input is needed, the scan is running.
* Notepad will open with the results, click no to the Optional_Scan
* Follow the instructions that pop up for posting the results.
* Close the program window, and delete the program from your desktop.

Please note: You may have to disable any script protection running if the scan fails to run. After downloading the tool, disconnect from the internet and disable all antivirus protection. Run the scan, enable your A/V and reconnect to the internet.
