Hi. I'm new to this forum. I'm just a regular computer user, not very technical with the computer. So please be patient when you're giving me instruction, it may takes me a couple of try to understand :thumbsup:

Basically, my problem is this:
My computer was making a lot of noises, pop-ups keep popping up even with my pop-up blocker on, and my IE's options under Privacy keep on being override (going back to accept all cookies whenever I've changed to Medium privacy).
So I downloaded and ran Spybot: Search and Destroy. It found some problem and fixed it. My computer worked fine for about a night, then same thing happens again the next day. I re-ran Spybot, the Virtumonde keeps popping up a result.
I'm rerunning Spybot right now so I can post up a screenshot of it. In the meantime, what can I do to get ride of Virtumonde completely? It seems like Spybot can't.

Also, are all Virtumonde's trojans are backdoor trojans? I've read someone's post about having similiar problem as me, and the helper mentioned backdoor trojan. Now, I'm scared.

Thank you in advance.

Welcome to BC.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (v1.34) 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. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.
  • Exit MBAM when done.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with disinfection. 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. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes. Click this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled.

Also when my computer re-started, a screen pop up saying c:/winow/system32/feloyapu.dll_old is not found, or something to that effect. And should I run MBAM again to double check if all that Vundo Trojan are deleted? When I first ran and deleted with Spybot: Search and Destroy, it worked great. But after a night, the vundo trojan re pops up.

Thank you quietman7 for all your help!

Your MBAM log indicates some files will be deleted on reboot. If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you need to restart the computer so the malware can be fully removed. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. If you have not rebooted, make sure you do this. When done, rescan again with MBAM (Quick Scan) in normal mode and check all items found for removal. Don't forgot to check for database updates through the program's interface (preferable way) before scanning. Then click the Logs tab and copy/paste the contents of the new report in your next reply. If you did reboot, then rescan again anyway and post a new log.

It seems like this is what was happening when I ran Spybot S&D too. Every time I rerun the scanner, it'll pick up more infected files. Does that mean I have to rescan my computer daily to make sure all the infected files would be gone? Are there anyways I can protect my computer before the files get infected?

Also, at one point MBAM asked me to "Insert your Window XP Home Edition Service Pack 3 CD." I don't have such CD. Apparantly, the "System and Application Recovery" program is installed straight on my computer; therefore, I was never given any CDs for the operating system.

Once again, thank you so much for helping me.

Why it is every time I run a different scan, it brings up more infected files? Does this mean my computer is not free off all these infected files? What can I do now? Thanks!

There are no shortcuts or guarantees when it comes to malware removal. Sometimes it takes several efforts with different, the same or more powerful tools to do the job. Even then, with some types of malware infections, the task can be arduous.

No single product is 100% foolproof and can detect and remove all threats at any given time. The security community is in a constant state of change as new infections appear. Each vendor has its own definition of what constitutes malware and scanning your computer using different criteria will yield different results. The fact that each program has its own definition files means that some malware may be picked up by one that could be missed by another.

Rescan again with MBAM (Quick Scan) in normal mode and check all items found for removal. Don't forgot to check for database updates through the program's interface (preferable way) before scanning and to reboot afterwards. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. When done, click the Logs tab and copy/paste the contents of the new report in your next reply.

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. 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, then 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.

Tips to protect yourself against malware and reduce the potential for re-infection:Avoid gaming sites, pirated software, cracking tools, keygens, and peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing programs. They are a security risk which can make your computer susceptible to a smörgåsbord of malware infections, remote attacks, exposure of personal information, and identity theft. Many malicious worms and Trojans spread across P2P file sharing networks, gaming and underground sites. Users visiting such pages may see innocuous-looking banner ads containing code which can trigger pop-up ads and malicious Flash ads that install viruses, Trojans and spyware. Ads are a target for hackers because they offer a stealthy way to distribute malware to a wide range of Internet users. The best way to reduce the risk of infection is to avoid these types of web sites and not use any P2P applications. Read P2P Software User Advisories and Risks of File-Sharing Technology.

Keeping Autorun enabled on USB and other removable drives has become a significant security risk due to the increasing number of malware variants that can infect them and transfer the infection to your computer. To learn more about this risk, please read:

quietman7,

I did what you've suggested above. Thank you so much for all your help. You've literally saved my life, since I do all my school and work activities on this computer. I have a few last questions. So are you saying that if I accidently opens up a file that was infected, there's a possible reinfection to manifest again? The new restore point should able to prevent that? I also saw another thread someone asking about similar infection my computer had. The comment of the helper was that the computer is not ever "secure" now and that the user shouldn't use the computer to access any banking or password protected accounts. Is that true in my case?

As I said previously, System Restore will back up the good as well as the bad files so when malware is present on the system it gets included in restore points. If not removed, they sometimes can reinfect your system if you accidentally use an old restore point. You have removed all the old restore points to eliminate that hazard.

Vundo is a Trojan that infects a system with malicious Browser Helper Objects and .dll (Dynamic Link Library) modules attached to Winlogon and Explorer.exe. The infection is responsible for launching unwanted pop ups, advertising for rogue antispyware programs, and downloading more malicious files which hampers system performance. Newer variants of Vundo typically use bogus warning messages and alerts to indicate that your computer is infected with spyware or has critical errors as a scare tactic to goad you into downloading a rogue security application to fix it. The messages can mimic system messages so they appear as if they are generated by the Windows Operating System. The problem with these types of infections is that they can download other malicious files so the extent of the infection can vary to include backdoor Trojans and rootkit component which make it more difficult to remove.

When a backdoor Trojan or rootkit is involved, the PC has likely been compromised and there is no way to be sure the computer can ever be trusted again. It is dangerous and incorrect to assume that because this malware has been removed the computer is now secure. In some instances an infection may have caused so much damage to your system that it cannot be completely cleaned or repaired. The malware may leave so many remnants behind that security tools cannot find them. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of malware, the best course of action is to wipe the drive clean, reformat and reinstall the OS.

For more detail on how these types of rogue programs install themselves, read Anatomy of a malware scam.

Vundo spreads via Internet Relay Chat, by visiting underground web pages, adult, gaming or pirated software sites, and by using peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing programs which are a security risk that can make your computer susceptible to a smörgåsbord of malware infections, remote attacks, exposure of personal information, and identity theft. Many malicious worms and Trojans spread across P2P file sharing networks, gaming and underground sites. Users visiting such sites may see innocuous-looking banner ads containing code which can trigger pop-up ads and malicious Flash ads that install viruses, Trojans and spyware. Ads are a target for hackers because they offer a stealthy way to distribute malware to a wide range of Internet users. The infection also spreads through emails containing links to websites that exploit your web browser’s security holes and by exploiting a vulnerability in exploiting a vulnerability in older versions of Sun Java. When you click on a Vundo laced email link, Internet Explorer launches a site that stealthy installs the Trojan so that it can run every time you startup Windows and download more malicious files.

quietman7,

So let me see if I understand this. Vundo is not a backdoor trojans, but it can allow backdoor trojans onto a computer? Then my question is: can you tell from those scanners logs if my computer got infected by any backdoor trojans? I believe I might have picked up Vundo when I used p2p file sharing on Megaupload. Is it safe to use those files that I downloaded from p2p if they were indeed how I got Vundo in the first place?

What is a good antivirus/antimalware software to use that can continuously scan for harmful files? I currently have Symantec Antivirus Software, is that software sufficient? A friend had recommended AVG, is that any better than Symantec? Also, do you recommend running MBAM and/or SUPERantispyware daily to see if my computer is clean?

Thank you!

Its difficult to tell exactly without having used more advanced tools which create logs that show dates/times. Establishing a timeframe is always more useful when trying to ascertain when you became infected. Some of the bad registry entries (MS Juan) indicate you may have had a more serious form of vundo at some point. Further, any scanning tools used prior to coming here may have removed some of the files which would not show in the logs created by tools used to clean the infected files we found using MBAM. The current crop of Vundo making the rounds often includes a nasty variant of the TDSSSERV rootkit component. I did not see evidence of this infection on your system.

No single product is 100% foolproof and can detect and remove all threats at any given time. The security community is in a constant state of change as new infections appear. Each vendor has its own definition of what constitutes malware and scanning your computer using different criteria will yield different results. The fact that each program has its own definition files means that some malware may be picked up by one that could be missed by another. Thus, a multi-layered defense using several anti-spyware products (including an effective firewall) to supplement your anti-virus combined with common sense and safe surfing habits provides the most complete protection.

I recommend taking advantage of the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Protection Module which uses advanced heuristic scanning technology to monitor your system and provide real-time protection to prevent the installation of most new malware. This technology monitors every process and stops malicious processes before they can infect your computer. The database that defines the heuristics is updated as often as there is something to add to it. Enabling the Protection Module feature requires reqistration and purchase of a license key that includes free lifetime upgrades and support. After activation, Malwarebytes can be set to update itself and schedule scans automatically on a daily basis. The Protection Module is not intrusive as it utilizes few system resources and should not conflict with other scanners or anti-virus programs.

The free version of SAS does not provide real-time protection or scheduled scanning so there is no need for it to run at startup...disable that feature and use it as a separate stand-alone on-demand scanner.

quietman7,

Thank you for your prompt replies, your help, and your recommendations. I only have one last question. I've transferred some movie files from my computer to CDs back when my computer was still infected with trojans. Those files could have been a result from a p2p download, which could have been how I infected the computer with Vundo. My question is that if I insert the CDs and play those movie files on my computer, will that reinfect my computer anyways? I guess what I'm asking is is that are those files safe to play? How can I make sure the files on the CDs are safe?

Regards,
-CC
