Posted 06 March 2009 - 10:10 PM

Every 10 minutes or so, I get a pop up from Windows Defender telling me I have win32.backdoor-DNM (sorry i switched the letters around in the topic) on my computer and to enable protection. The link leads to a site that wants you to download their scan. It won't let me go to any other pages. Most of the time now, my browser won't even open or will crash pretty quickly. One of my scans with spyware terminator caught it but said it couldn't get rid of it, restart the computer, and scan again. The 2nd scan didn't pick up anything but I still have the problems. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Welcome to the BleepingComputer Forums.

Since it has been a few days since you scanned your computer with HijackThis, we will need a new HijackThis log. Please download Trend Micro - HijackThis. Do a new scan with Trend Micro - HijackThis and post it in your next reply. Thank you for your patience.

Please see Preparation Guide for use before posting about your potential Malware problem.

If you have already posted this log at another forum or if you decide to seek help at another forum, please let us know. There is a shortage of helpers and taking the time of two volunteer helpers means that someone else may not be helped.

Please post your HijackThis log as a reply to this thread and not as an attachment. I am always leery of opening attachments so I always request that HijackThis logs are to be posted as a reply to the thread. I do not think that you are attaching anything scary but others may do so.

While we are working on your HijackThis log, please:
  • Reply to this thread; do not start another!
  • Do not make any changes on your computer during the cleaning process or download/add programs on your computer unless instructed to do so.

I have some bad news for you. Since you mentioned win32.backdoor-DMN, I need to give you this warning.

Rootkits, backdoor Trojans, Botnets, and IRCBots are very dangerous because they use advanced techniques (backdoors) as a means of accessing a computer system that bypasses security mechanisms and steal sensitive information which they send back to the hacker. These trojans leave a backdoor open on the system that can allow hacker total and complete access to your computer. Hackers can operate your computer just as if he were sitting in front of it. Hackers can watch everything you are doing on the computer, play tricks, do screenshots, log passwords, start and stop programs. Backdoor trojans send your identity information to a third party who may use that information for their own purposes such as identity theft, stolen bank funds, stealing credit card information etc.

Before deciding whether your computer needs cleaning or reformatting, you need to ask yourself some very serious questions.

Do you use your computer for any of the following?
  • Online banking/Business purposes
  • storing sensitive or very personal information
If you answered yes to any of those questions, you should disconnect your computer from the Internet and do a complete format and reinstall. If you use online banking, then you should contact your bank and arrange to have your password changed immediately. You should change any other passwords you use as these may have been compromised.

David Bach's Six Ways to Avoid Identity Theft

Here are six things you need to know to fight back against identity theft:

1. Keep your private information private.

Half of all identity theft in which the thief is identified is committed by a friend, coworker, neighbor, in-home employee, or relative of the victim. So make it a habit not to leave things lying around at home or in the office -- specifically your wallet, checkbook, or anything else containing private or financial information, including your mail.

Also, before you toss anything in the trash containing your private information, be sure to shred it. This isn't new advice, but I'd be remiss not to mention it.

2. Get a copy of your credit reports.

Often, victims of identity theft have no idea their credit is being used or destroyed until they apply for a loan and pull their credit score. So pull your credit report now, and make a plan to check it regularly.

By law, you're entitled to a free credit report from each of the three major credit bureaus -- Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion -- once every year. Go to AnnualCreditReport.com and stagger your requests so that you'll receive one report from each credit bureau every four months. Put the dates on your calendar so you don't forget. Keep in mind that this is for your free credit report only, not your credit score.

For your credit score, you'll need to go to myFICO. While you're there, you may want to check out their Identity Theft Security Deluxe product, which monitors your credit score and credit report automatically for $49.95 a year.

3. Find out if your state has a credit freeze law.

Here's a virtually foolproof way to prevent a thief from stealing your identity and using your personal data to get approved for credit. With this new law you're able to block ("freeze") all access to your credit report and credit score.

It's not necessarily the most convenient solution to protect yourself from fraud. Anytime you need to have your credit checked -- for instance, if you're buying a car or cell phone or even interviewing for a job -- you'll need to lift the block ("thaw" your record), which takes about three days. But if you have real concerns about identity theft or perhaps are already a victim, this is an option you may want to consider.

Some states will only grant a credit freeze if you're already a victim of identity theft. Find out if your state has a credit freeze law, including what it costs, by visiting FinancialPrivacyNow.org.

4. Check your bank statements weekly.

One of the great things about online banking is that you can log on and check your account at any time. Make a point of checking your bank statement weekly to be sure there aren't any red flags.

The same goes for your credit card statements. In fact, you may want to consider canceling your paper statements altogether and opting for online statements. After all, you're more likely to have personal information stolen from your mail than from the Internet.

That said, be sure to always use a secure computer. Using a public computer, like one at your local library, is risky due to tracking software that thieves can use to steal your passwords.

5. Be computer savvy.

Even though a relatively small percentage of identity theft occurs online, you should still take necessary precautions.

In addition to being careful about surfing the web on public computers, you should also be aware of the risks involved when using a wireless connection. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are becoming increasingly popular, and as a result, there is bound to be an increase in wireless hacking.

Wireless connectivity is the perfect platform for thieves to get your personal data. If you have a wireless network at home or work, make sure you are incorporating password-protection and encryption. When accessing public hotspots, use a personal firewall.

Also, keep your computer safe by updating your antivirus and anti-spyware programs regularly. Use passwords so that others can't log on to your computer, laptop, or even your PDA, and be sure to change your passwords often.

Be smart about phishing scams, too. That's when you're sent an email that requests your personal or financial information, or that prompts you to click a link to provide your personal or financial information. If you're unsure of the legitimacy of such a request, call the company that it was supposedly sent from. If an email seems suspicious, it usually is.

6. Be aware of "deleted" data.

The Washington Post recently ran an article on mobile phones -- specifically "smartphones" like the Palm Treo and BlackBerry -- that was quite an eye-opener.

According to the story, resetting your phone to wipe out personal data doesn't exactly delete information. It turns out that your phone's operating system never actually deletes data, only the pointers to where the data is located. Anyone with the right software can recover information that was stored on your phone once you sell or discard it

You need to do is contact the device manufacturer for complete instructions on what to do to wipe your data clean. You can also visit WirelessRecycling.com for instructions. And think twice about what information you store on your device in case it's ever lost or stolen.

If Your Identity Is Stolen

Take the above steps and -- should you ever find yourself in the unfortunate position of having had your identity stolen -- you'll commend yourself for being proactive enough to identify a problem before too much damage was done.

Don't waste a minute once you've discovered suspicious activity -- go directly to the website of the Federal Trade Commission to file a complaint and access their comprehensive guide on the steps you'll need to follow to resolve the situation.

I recommend backing up your important files and reinstalling everything from scratch. There are so many changes that could have been done if that backdoor was used. Even if we cleaned the infections, it would not help to recover the information that has been compromised and there is no guarantee that your computer would be safe to use. Some infections are difficult to remove completely because of their morphing characteristics which allows the malware to regenerate itself. Sometimes there is another hidden piece of malware which has not been detected by your security tools that protects malicious files and registry keys (which have been detected) so they cannot be permanently deleted. Disinfection will probably require the use of more powerful tools than we recommend in this forum.

If you only use your computer for music/games etc, your better option would be to clean it of infections rather than do a reformat. The decision must be made by you.

Here are some informative links to use to help you make a decision:

Danger: Remote Access Trojans

Consumers – Identity Theft

When should I re-format? How should I reinstall?

How Do I Handle Possible Identify Theft, Internet Fraud and CC Fraud?

Rootkits: The Obscure Hacker Attack

Help: I Got Hacked. Now What Do I Do?

Microsoft Says Recovery from Malware Becoming Impossible

How to report ID theft, fraud, drive-by installs, hijacking and malware? (#10451)

However, if you do not have the resources to reformat your computer and reinstall your operating system and programs, I will be happy to attempt to clean it.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Please let me know what you have decided to do in your next post.

I had a feeling I would have to reformat and reinstall. I just wanted to make sure before I started the process. So that is what I'll do. Thank you for your help :thumbup2:
