Hi , I think I have been Infected with the Worm.VBS.Sasan.a . I have run my Karspersky Internet Security full scan and found many files infected (around 7). I saw on a thread where sUBs helped ( http://forum.lowyat.net/topic/539224 ) someone else that had the same problem. My first question is: should I disinfect all these files with Kaspersky before using the Flash_disinfector, as it is advised on the thread? or shall I just use it after the scanning finished before disinfecting all? Sorry I'm not a professional but I can follow the instructions you will give me and I think we can solve the problem. I just wanted to live the pc like this until I asked the question on the site. Moreover, if you think I should use a different procedure, please tell me and I will follow your instructions. Thank you in advance for your help.
Regards Falucio

The process of cleaning your computer may require you to temporarily disable some security programs. If you are using SpyBot Search and Destroy, please refer to Note 2 at the bottom of this page.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
  • 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.
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.

Note 2:
-- MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes (like Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere with the fix or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please disable such programs until disinfection is complete or permit them to allow the changes. To disable these programs, please view this topic: How To Temporarily Disable Your Anti-virus, Firewall And Anti-malware Programs

Hi Germanma,
I've followed your instruction and performed the Quick Scan, but it came out that there is no infection. Maybe the Kaspersky has removed the infected files. I hav also re-done it after having disactivated the Kaspersky. Please let me know else I can do. The Karspesky had found the files and eliminates them because it couldn't disinfect them. Now for example, if I try to click on my computer and then D drive or C drive, it comes out a window called Windows - No Disk, and inside is written Exception Processing Message c0000013 Paramenters 75b6bf7c 4 75b6b7c 75b6bf7c , and then there are 3 options: Cancel or Try Again, or Continue.
The log from Malwarebytes came out like this:

Dear Germama,

sorry but I stayed up until 7am waiting for the SUPERAntiSpam to do the scanning in safe mode and it took 8 hours. At the end it found only one file infected, but nothing to do with the Warm.VBS.Sasan.a . Anyhow, I followed your instructions and the program deleted it.
I can see from my Kaspersky that there are 6 files Deleted (in italian "Eliminati", i say this because unfortunately the report that I will attach from kaspersky is in italian). The files are :

C:\WINDOWS\Boot.ini
C:\.MS32DLL.dll.vbs
D:\.MS32DLL.dll.vbs
C:\WINDOWS.MS32DLL.dll.vbs
H:\.MS32DLL.dll.vbs (this is from my USB who is the one who got me the virus. I performed the scan with the USB inserted)
I:\.MS32DLL.dll.vbs (this is from my USB who is the one who got me the virus. I performed the scan with the USB inserted)

The Karspesky says that the virus are eliminated/ deleted, but I think that the files above are deleted together with the viruses, so I have problems to open folders such as D: or C: when I double click on them, says file missing such as C:\.MS32DLL.dll.vbs or D:\.MS32DLL.dll.vbs, and when I reboot for example when windows is loading I get Boot.ini missing. But for example if I right click and then > explore, then it opens them.

I will attach the report from SUPERAntiSpam and from kaspersky. Bearing in mind that when i scanned with SUPERAntiSpam, i completely switched off Kasperky, but I guess SUPERAntiSpam did not find the infected files written above because probably karspersky put them in some folder or eliminated them completely. Hhowver when i go onto kasperky, and see the report of the files infected and deleted, it gives me the option to reinstall them back. but these files are infected. What shall I do? maybe I should find those files from internet and re install them. But where? In which folder ? please let me know. Thanks for helping.

how do I attach the .txt file to submit it?

Just copy/paste the log to the message box

Go ahead and run Flash Disinfector

Please download
Flash_Disinfector.exe by sUBs and save it to your desktop.
  • Double-click Flash_Disinfector.exe to run it and follow any prompts that may appear.
  • The utility may ask you to insert your flash drive and/or other removable drives. Please do so and allow the utility to clean up those drives as well.
  • Hold down the Shift key when inserting the drive until Windows detects it to keep autorun.inf from executing if it is present.
  • Wait until it has finished scanning and then exit the program.
  • Reboot your computer when done.
Note: As part of its routine, Flash_Disinfector will create a hidden folder named autorun.inf in each partition and every USB drive that was plugged in when you ran it. Do not delete this folder...it will help protect your drives from future infection by keeping the autorun file from being installed on the root drive and running other malicious files.
------------------------------------------------------



Also try DR. Web CureIt



Please download Dr.Web CureIt, the free version & save it to your desktop. DO NOT perform a scan yet.

Reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".

Scan with Dr.Web CureIt as follows:
  • Double-click on launch.exe to open the program and click Start. (There is no need to update if you just downloaded the most current version
  • Read the Virus check by DrWeb scanner prompt and click Ok where asked to Start scan now? Allow the setup.exe to load if asked by any of your security programs.
  • The Express scan will automatically begin.
    (This is a short scan of files currently running in memory, boot sectors, and targeted folders).
  • If prompted to dowload the Full version Free Trial, ignore and click the X to close the window.
  • If an infected object is found, you will be prompted to move anything that cannot be cured. Click Yes to All.
  • When complete, click Select All, then choose Cure > Move incurable.
    (This will move any detected files to the C:\Documents and Settings\userprofile\DoctorWeb\Quarantine folder if they can't be cured)
  • Now put a check next to Complete scan to scan all local disks and removable media.
  • In the top menu, click Settings > Change settings, and UNcheck "Heuristic analysis" under the "Scanning" tab, then click Ok.
  • Back at the main window, click the green arrow "Start Scanning" button on the right under the Dr.Web logo.
  • When the scan is complete, a message will be displayed at the bottom indicating if any viruses were found.
  • Click "Yes to all" if asked to cure or move the file(s) and select "Move incurable".
  • In the top menu, click file and choose save report list.
  • Save the DrWeb.csv report to your desktop.
  • Exit Dr.Web Cureit when done.
  • Important! Reboot your computer because it could be possible that files in use will be moved/deleted during reboot.
  • After reboot, post the contents of the log from Dr.Web in your next reply. (You can use Notepad to open the DrWeb.cvs report)

I'm going to ask some questions and I'll get back with you

Hi Garmanma,
thank you for your instructions. I've donethe Flash_disinfector and after the quisck scan with the Dr.Web which found No Viruses. Now I'm doing the full scan but it is taking time and at present it is not finding any viruses. At the moment I'm writing from another PC.
The fact is that Kaspersky is finding the virus , but these programs I've been running for some reasons are not . Please tell me what else do you advise me to do. I thank you again for your support. Regards,Falucio

Two things we can do
----------------------------


Please download Sysclean Package and the latest Virus Pattern Files - (Pattern files are usually named lptxxx.zip, where xxx is the pattern file number) and save them to your desktop.
  • Be sure to print out and follow the instructions provided in the How to Use System Cleaner for performing a scan.
  • If you get a message that "required files are missing", click Ok and wait for sysclean.com to unpack them.
  • This tool generates a log file (sysclean.log) in the same folder where you ran it - C:\Sysclean.
-- When using Sysclean its best to use the Administrator's account or an account with Administrative rights otherwise you will not have access rights to scan some locations. You can Use the "Run As" Command to Start a Program as an Administrator. Even when doing that, the scanning process may result in "Access Denied" messages for some files. This is normal because ..these files are protected by the system.

-- Some anti-virus programs will alert you of a virus attack when running sysclean so it's best to disable them before performing a scan.


------------------------------------------------------------

If Kaspersky still shows those files, try File Assassin


Malwarebytes Anti-Malware has a built-in FileAssassin feature for removing stubborn malware files.
  • Go to the "More Tools" tab and click on the "Run Tool" button
  • Browse to the location of the file to remove using the drop down box next to "Look in:" at the top.
    • C:\.MS32DLL.dll.vbs <- this file
  • When you find the file, click on it to highlight, then select Open.
  • You will be prompted with a message warning: This file will be permanently deleted. Are you sure you want to continue?. Click Yes.
  • If removal did not require a reboot, you will receive a message indicating the file was deleted successfully.
  • Click Ok.
  • If prompted to reboot, then do so immediately.
  • Repeat the above steps to find and remove:
    D:\.MS32DLL.dll.vbs <- this file
    C:\Windows\.MS32DLL.dll.vbs <- this file
    H:\.MS32DLL.dll.vbs <- this file
    I:\.MS32DLL.dll.vbs <- this file

Caution: Be careful what you delete. FileAssassin is a powerful program, designed to move highly persistent files. Using it incorrectly could lead to serious problems with your operating system.

Dear Garmanma,
thak you so much for your precious help. I think the PC is now ok. It seems like the I have gotten rid of the virus. I think actually it worked when I used the DrWeb. Thank you again and I hope somehow I can pay the favour back one day.
Regards,
Andrea "Falucio"

If there are no longer signs of malware then please....

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.

Tips to protect yourself against malware and reduce the potential for re-infection:
• "Simple and easy ways to keep your computer safe".
• "How did I get infected?, With steps so it does not happen again!".
• "Hardening Windows Security - Part 1 & Part 2".
• "IE Recommended Minimal Security Settings" - "How to Secure Your Web Browser".

• Avoid gaming sites, underground web pages, pirated software, crack sites, 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 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.
