I have a home network of 2 PCs. One has become infected with Trojans. I now have reason to believe that the source of the attack was a disc of pirated software (probably the Keygen/crack component). This break in my usual policy is costing me much grief and possible risk.

So far I have:
Identified MS Antispyware 2009 and removed it manually using instructions I found online.
Identified go.google.com
Reason to believe there is a backdoor open allowing trojans to infect.
Reason to believe that malware is preventing installation/updating of legitimate anti-malware

Attempted to update AVG, but the server connection fails on the infected machine. The server connection works fine on the clean machine.
Attempted to install Malwarebytes Anti-Malware but the infected machine will not install the program. My clean computer has installed it successfully
Attempted to download Spybot S & D, but the browser of the infected machine fails to connect to the server hosting Spybot.

The HDD on the infected machine is a SATA drive whereas my clean machine is IDE, and my external HDD cases are all IDE so I haven't been able to use the clean machine to disinfect the bad one.

I have copied essential files across the network to the clean machine for backup purposes.

I'd like to clean the infections without having to resort to a format/re-installation.

Looking forward to your advice.

Hello,
Some types of malware will disable MBAM and other security tools. If MBAM will not install, try renaming it. Right-click on the mbam-setup.exe file and change the .exe extension to .bat, .com, .pif, or .scr and then double-click on it to run.

If after installation, MBAM will not run, open the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder in Program Files, right-click on mbam.exe and change the .exe as noted above. Then double-click on it to run..


***
Another work around is by not using the mouse to install it, Just use the arrow keys, tab, and enter keys.


MBAM instructions:
Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (v1.32) and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
If you have a previous version of MBAM, remove it via Add/Remove Programs and download a fresh copy.
  • 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.

I did have to rename the exe files to make them work.

34 infections found. Copy of log is below.

On re-boot, MBAM was not able to auto-restart as the filename had been changed. I don't know if that's a problem, I'm re-running the quick scan now to see if any debris got left behind.

If so, I'll rename the mbam.exe before re-boot.

Ha, as I'm typing, my son has reported that the scan finished and found one infected object..

During the MBAM scan, I excluded advert.dll which was detected as Adware. Advert.dll is required for CuteFTP to run.

Is the system completely clean now?

I will now reboot and report any unusual behaviour

Thanks in advance.

Hello actualy we need to run 2 -3 more apps. You had a rootkit that deploys other items,so I want to check for them.

Run SDFix, from safe Mode.
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.


Now run A rootkit scan:
Rootkit scanning

Before performing a Anti rootkit scan it is recommended to do the following to ensure more accurate results and avoid common issues that may cause false detections.

Disconnect from the Internet or physically unplug you Internet cable connection.
Close all open programs, scheduling/updating tasks and background processes that might activate during the scan including the screensaver.
Temporarily disable your anti-virus and real-time anti-spyware protection.
After starting the scan, do not use the computer until the scan has completed.
When finished, re-enable your anti-virus/anti-malware (or reboot) and then you can reconnect to the Internet.

Avira AntiRootkit
Please navigate to the download page of Avira AntiRootkit and click on Download to save it to your Destop.
  • You should now find a file called: antivir_rootkit.zip on your Desktop.
  • Extract the file to your Desktop (you may then delete the zip file).
  • You should now have a folder with Setup.exe and some other files within it on your Desktop.
  • Double-click Setup.exe.
  • Click Next.
  • Highlight the radio button to acceppt the license agreement and then click Next.
  • Then click Next and Install to finalise the installation process.
  • Click Finish (you may now also delete the folder with the extracted files from the zip archive)
You successfully installed Avira AntiRootkit!

Looking better,now I want to see if there's been a DNS changer and anything else. So lets''s do Part 1 of S!Ri's SmitfraudFix .

Please download SmitfraudFix

Double-click SmitfraudFix.exe
Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press "Enter"; a text file will appear, which lists infected files (if present).
Please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.

Note : process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.

This is also good, rapport is because SF was written by our French colleague Siri. we should have this now.

Next we need to run Part #2: Cleanning:
You should print out these instructions, or copy them to a Notepad file for reading while in Safe Mode, because you will not be able to connect to the Internet to read from this site.

Please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu with options should appear;
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press "Enter".
  • Choose your usual account.
Once in Safe Mode, double-click SmitfraudFix.exe
Select option #2 - Clean by typing 2 and press "Enter" to delete infected files.

You will be prompted : "Registry cleaning - Do you want to clean the registry ?"; answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter" in order to remove the Desktop background and clean registry keys associated with the infection.

The tool will now check if wininet.dll is infected. You may be prompted to replace the infected file (if found); answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter".

The tool may need to restart your computer to finish the cleaning process; if it doesn't, please restart anyway into normal Windows. A text file will appear onscreen, with results from the cleaning process; please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.
The report can also be found at the root of the system drive, usually at C:\rapport.txt


And once more RERUN MBAM

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.

How is the PC running Now??

Hi, Thanks again. I quoted "rapport" knowing it was due to the French origins of the application. i thought it was kinda cute.

After Smitfraudfix was run in safe mode, on reboot Super Anti-spyware warned me of an attempt to change the homepage of IE to a microsoft URL. I figured the registry changes had paved the way to a reversion to the IE default homepage and blocked the change.

I ran SmitfraudFix twice as the process finished off a little differently than your instructions suggested and I got a little thrown by that. The following report is from the second run, as the first report was overwritten. I don't believe that there was any significant difference between the two reports.

End of Report

I haven't tried running a variety of apps, but the PC has certainly been running well since post #4. It's not hard to see that the PC was still vulnerable at that stage, and I understand the necessity to run the remainder of the applications.

Thanks for all the assistance.

I have three further questions

1) What recommendations do you make for maintaining a clean system? (What apps should be resident or routinely used, aside from avoiding file-sharing and pirate software and other good web practice?). I have children who could easily be tricked into downloading malware as a result of those pop-ups that warn of fake threats...

2) At my workplace, what can I do to check for malware? It seems that no single app sees everything.

3) should I be concerned that my passwords to either secure or unsecure sites, or any other passwords have been harvested or might otherwise be compromized?

Hi glad to see the system clean! I would keep MBam and SAS. Remember to update weekly at least and prior to a scan.
Do Not run Smit or SDFix on your own. As if the malware they remove is not on the machine they can cause trouble.
I would also install Spyware Blaster.
I would also change all passwords and I would even do it from a different machine.
Please read these tips from quietman7 as they are excellent: See post 17 here...
Tips to protect yourself against malware and reduce the potential for re-infection:

Unless you have further problems, we can clear out our tools cand wrap up.

Download and Run OTCleanIt

This program will remove the tools we have used.
Download OTCleanIt by OldTimer to your desktop.
Double click OTCleanIt.exe to start the program.
Click the big CleanUp! button.
When asked if you want to proceed with the cleanup process, click Yes. Restart your computer when prompted.
Delete the file after use, if it did not delete itself.


Now 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. 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.
Vista Users can refer to these links: Create a New Restore Point and Disk Cleanup.

Dang! Please run SDFix again..
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.
