Apparently this is a very recent variant, as only Kaspersky even appears to acknowledge its existence under the name I cited. It got into my system despite a fully functional up-to-date McAfee virus scan engine running. I suspect it may have entered via a recently reported vulnerability in Shockwave Flash player, because the symptoms began to appear after viewing some videos within an IE browser.

Symptoms include:

IE connections are blocked and IE randomly crashes
Firefox will not start at all
McAfee On Demand scanner fails to initialize
Neither of the scanning tools (DDS and RootRepeal) will run to completion

I installed Earthlink Protection Center (Kaspersky engine) and got the following report for a critical areas scan:

detected: Trojan program Trojan-Spy.Win32.Agent.azpj Running module: svchost.exe\4DAEA68A.x86.dll

detected: Trojan program Trojan-Spy.Win32.Agent.azpj Running module: alg.exe\4DAEA68A.x86.dll

No disinfecting options are available. Complete scan is in progress that I will save for reference if needed.

System is running XP Home Edition, up-to-date.

Please HELP!!

Install RootRepeal

Click here - Official Rootrepeal Site, and download RootRepeal.zip. I recommend downloading to your desktop.
Fatdcuk at Malwarebytes posted a comprehensive tutorial - Self Help guide can be found here if needed.: Malwarebytes Removal and Self Help Guides.
Click RootRepeal.exe to open the scanner.
Click the Report tab, now click on Scan. A Window will open asking what to include in the scan.
Check the following items:
Drivers
Files
Processes
SSDT
Stealth Objects
Hidden Services

Click OK
Scan your C Drive (Or your current system drive) and click OK. The scan will begin. This my take a moment, so please be patient. When the scan completes, click Save Report.
Name the log RootRepeal.txt and save it to your Documents folder - (Default folder).
Paste the log into your next reply.

Please note: If Rootrepeal fails to run, try this step: Click Settings - Options. Set the Disk Access slider to High

No success with RootRepeal - same as previous attempt. The program unzips OK and initializes, I set the scan parameters and the scan begins and appears to progress, but the program crashes before a log is produced. The program cannot be restarted after that.

Try running it with only the drivers and processes section being checked. Let us know how that goes. If it runs, please post a log.

Thanks

Scanning only drivers and processes produced the following report (seems a bit short and sketchy):

You have indications of a newer rootkit. We need to get you moved over to the HJT/Malware removal forum.
  • Please download System Repair Engineer from here
  • Unzip/extract sreng2.zip to a folder on your desktop
  • Double-click on SREngLdr.EXE to launch System Repair Engineer
  • Click the Smart Scan Icon
  • Click Scan
  • Wait for the scan to finish
  • Click on the Save Reports button
  • Save it to your desktop, using the recommended name of SREngLOG.log
  • Close System Repair Engineer
  • Use notepad to open the SREngLOG.log file
  • Note: The log may be long, and you may need several posts to post all of it
  • If you are using a custom HOSTS file, please leave out the HOSTS File section, as it will make the log far too long
Post a your SREngLOG log to the HJT forum and a Team member will be along to help you as soon as possible.

If you need any help with the guide, please let me know.

Hello,

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/256355/newer-rootkit-trojan-spywin32agentazpj/ 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 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 several days, up to two weeks perhaps less, to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

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

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:
