Cleaning up after DNSChanger and Agent trojans found

Posted 13 June 2009 - 08:15 AM

On Tuesday I realized my computer had been infected by a trojan. What tipped me off was that when I tried to run Microsoft updates, IE kept getting redirected to Google. I found that my DNS server addresses had been changed. I also found I was unable to get valid updates to my antivirus program, Avast!, and another security program.

I took the machine off the Internet immediately. Now that I know the symptoms I realize DNSChanger had been running for at least two days before I found it.

I use this computer for financial transactions. Obviously I am very concerned by this attack. I have called all my financial institutions and changed all my passwords.

To address the problem, so far I've done these things:
  • Malwarebytes scan - found and quarantined:
    • trojan.DNSChanger
    • trojan.Agent
  • Microsoft Updates - successfully installed all recent patches.
Installed and ran these online scanners:
  • TrendMicro Housecall - found & deleted several instances of malware on first scan; clean on second scan
  • BitDefender - found multiple instances of these threats:
  • Gen:Rootkit.Heur.7017E8B8B8
  • Gen:Trojan.Heur.VB.90C43B0B0B
  • Backdoor.Generic.148045
  • JS.Kak.Gen@mm
I manually deleted all files in which these were found. (Most of these files were several years old.)
Installed and ran these spyware scanners:
  • Ad Aware - quick scan - found & deleted 66 tracking cookies
  • SpybotS&D - full scan - found 1 tracking cookie.
  • SUPERAntiSpyware - found 32 registry threats, 463 file threats. Registry threats included entries for Rootkit.Agent/Gen-GXServ which blocked a number of antivirus progams. SAS deleted all these threats.
Note that I downloaded all of the above programs onto a Mac and then copied them to a CD (Malwarebytes) or across the LAN (all the others) to get them to the infected PC. I did this just to make sure that they were not corrupted by something lurking on the infected PC.

I also closely examined the contents of my router (a Dynex DX-E402) and could find no signs that it had been infected. It still had the correct DNS addresses (for OpenDNS) and I couldn't find anything else that had been changed. Also, all of the other computers on the LAN still have the correct OpenDNS addresses.

My intention is to dismantle this computer and copy the data from its hard drive to a new computer via a USB dock. I want to be sure this machine is as clean as possible before I do this.

I've run DDS.scr, pasted the contents of DDS.txt file to the bottom of this message, and attached the log. I appreciate any advice or help you can give me to help ensure I've cleaned this machine as thoroughly as I can.

Thank you!

I also use an external drive for additional backups. The above scans included the internal backup drive but not the external, which is not attached.

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. No one is ignored here

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 clear description of the problems you're having, 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.

Thanks and again sorry for the delay


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

Thank you for reopening this topic. I am sorry I did not reply sooner.

Unfortunately, I am not able to produce new DDS logs. As I said in my original post, my plan was to dismantle this computer to ensure the infection was eliminated.

I waited for six days for a response to my original post, but I did not receive any response in that time. Eventually I decided that I had to go ahead with the dismantling so I could build a new computer. The machine in question is my main computer and I could not continue to do without it for an indefinite period of time.

Since the computer no longer exists, I cannot produce any more DDS logs or perform any additional diagnostic procedures.

If you can report anything of value by inspecting my original DDS log, I would very much appreciate it. If there are further measures which I can take to ensure that my data, which I copied off the infected machine after cleaning it as thoroughly as I knew how, I would be very glad to know about them.

I want to say that despite the fact that I did not receive a response before I was forced to dismantle the infected computer, I am very appreciative of the volunteer support provided here, and I am glad this is available as a resource.

Thank you!

Hi Alisonnic,

I will take a look at your DDS logs and see what I can find.

Be aware that not all infections will show in a log like that though. I'll do my best for you. :thumbup2:

Hi alisonnic,

Nothing in the DDS log I'm afraid.

The error messages in the attach.txt seem to be non-malware related though.

Not much to go on there really. :thumbup2:

Thank you so much for checking, m0le. I this is actually good news, because it helps confirm that my cleanup efforts were successful. I now have higher confidence that the data I retrieved from this machine after the cleanup is free of infections.

Thanks again!

You're welcome.

Just remember that some malware wouldn't show up on DDS logs. For example, DNSChanger trojan which was in your list would be one of those.

Ok, thanks. As I mentioned in the OP, I did run two programs which do detect DNSChanger (MalwareBytes Anti-Malware and SUPERAntiSpyware) before producing these DDS logs. MBAM detected and quarantined DNSChanger, and after that, SAS couldn't find it. So I'm fairly confident it was eliminated.

Thanks again!
