Hope this is in the right thread.

My firewall (ZA) occasionally warns me that 401.12.344.221 is trying to access internet/trusted zone
(this number changes with each warning).
The application on the ZA warning is "localtest3.exe"

I've googled it and found only one result at Prevx .com, which describes it as a worm.

Any info appreciated, should I post a HJT log? I know those guys are extremely busy
and don't want to increase their workload unnecessarily.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
  • 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 or here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  • 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 you're using other security programs that detect registry changes, they may alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please permit the program to allow the changes.

Please include the following in your reply:

Thanks for the reply :thumbsup:

After I posted yesterday I downloaded updated and ran Malwarebytes as it is
highly recommended by this site, the the only difference to your instructions was
I ran a full scan which I've added below, with another quick scan I ran this morning.

Restart your computer, update MBAM and run another quick scan and post the log.

Threat name Trojan horse Agent_r.NP

Once again thanks for your time and patience.

I don't know if it's relevant, but out of curiosity I ran MBAM after a reboot with no internet connection,
needless to say no infections, then I ran MBAM with a connection but without opening my browser, infected again.
Hope this helps, the log is below.

I notice some of the threats are for online gaming which I don't do, the game I played was a free poker site to
simply learn the game, I uninstalled it way before Christmas.

Since you have posted a Hijackthis log, please refrain from making any changes to your PC and from posting in this topic, a moderator will come along to close this topic as you are only supposed to have 1 topic per infected machine.

You are very welcome :thumbsup: Happy to help. I suspect you have a rootkit but I could be wrong, the HJT team will be able to find out way more that I could :flowers:

Hello Shwmai,

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/227022/persistent-trojans/ you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond. Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:
Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.
