Hello to the tech team and members of this forum.Can't ignore it...Great job guys,keep up both of you!

I post here because of a virut problem...

Two days ago,foolishly, I downloaded a file which contained the malicious application.I had NO internet protection or any anti-virus program except an ad-aware version of 2007 never updated(please don't ban me!!!!!!).
So how i learned about virut?
I noticed that pc performance decreased rapidly and that puted me into concerns.I ran an ad-aware scan (the ancient one...) and found a trojan called win32.spamtool.agent.I removed it but it kept coming over and over.So i decided go to norton homepage for a full scan but guess what...site would never load.At that time weird processes started in task manager and my decision was to shut down the system and from another pc, figure out what's going on.

Site by site,my research showed a high possibillity of this Virut thing infection, so i decided to take the test.I downloaded: -DrWeb cureit -AVG -ATF -Comodo
These were resolved as best combination (IN THEORY) to cure my pc as some other guys on the net did it,as they say with these.But do I have Virut?
I put these in a USB and plugged it in the infected PC.DrWeb was accurate, confirmed the existence of win32.Virut 56 and some other trojans i cant recall now.Cleaned a lot of stuff and also I cleaned all temporary folders in C: with ATF.
BUT at that time my internet connection is overrun.I could view none of the pages now,taken over by Virut and it's followers.So I unpluged the router and turned Bluetooth Off.

In state of emergency,I decided to download DrWeb live CD from the other PC and perform a full scan but that would never complete as it stucks in some files and needs reboot:(
I recorded which files caused it to stuck and deleted each one of them (around 5 till now, nothing serious yet) until it got a file in C:/WINDOWS/Installer...
That final stroke me as I wouldn't want it deleted since it has to do with instal/uninstall of programms.

DrWeb CD live won't complete a scan.What am I going to do?I need to install anti-virus programms on a first POV clean machine.But I can't.I wonder wether I can install anything right now...

The virus party is supported by: a.exe,b.exe,c.exe,sofatnet.exe,dvdpaly.exe and many others... I deleted the first three and all their substances at first place,before I learned anything about virut.And Safe Mode=Blue Screen of death (i entered once today but never again...)

My PC is an:
HP Pavilion dv9000, Windows XP SP3

Looking forward for any kind of help as soon as possible.
Thank you!

I need you to do this so we can tell exactly what you have here.
Please search your drive for ctfmon.exe
Next upload the file(s) to Virus Total
Post their reply here,thanks.

THanks for the really fast answer:)

Are you asking to find the ctfmon.exe, transfer it to the other pc(from which i write now)?
Because that's the only choice i see since the infected pc has no internet anymore.

A glimpse of light on the horizon though,DrWeb live CD completed it's scan.
Still do what you asked?

Hi, OK I wanted to confirm Virut and have.. http://www.virustotal.com/analisis/2b23874...62ba-1250617541

I'm afraid I have very bad news.

Your system is infected with a nasty variant of Virut, a polymorphic file infector with IRCBot functionality which infects .exe, .scr files, downloads more malicious files to your system, and opens a back door that compromises your computer. According to this Norman White Paper Assessment of W32/Virut, some variants can infect the HOSTS file and block access to security related web sites. Other variants of virut can even penetrate and infect .exe files within compressed files (.zip, .cab, rar). Virux is an even more complex file infector which can embed an iframe into the body of web-related files and infect script files (.php, .asp, .htm, .html, .xml). When Virut creates infected files, it also creates non-functional files that are corrupted beyond repair and in some instances can disable Windows File Protection. In many cases the infected files cannot be disinfected properly by your anti-virus. When disinfection is attempted, the files become corrupted and the system may become irreparable. The longer virut remains on a computer, the more critical system files will become infected and corrupt so the degree of infection can vary.

The virus disables Windows File Protection by injecting code into the "winlogon.exe" process that patches system code in memory.

CA Virus detail of W32/Virut

The virus has a number of bugs in its code, and as a result it may misinfect a proportion of executable files....some W32/Virut.h infections are corrupted beyond repair.

McAfee Risk Assessment and Overview of W32/Virut

There are bugs in the viral code. When the virus produces infected files, it also creates non-functional files that also contain the virus...Due to the damaged caused to files by virut it's possible to find repaired but corrupted files. They became corrupted by the incorrect writing of the viral code during the process of infection. undetected, corrupted files (possibly still containing part of the viral code) can also be found. this is caused by incorrectly written and non-function viral code present in these files.

AVG Overview of W32/VirutThis kind of infection is contracted and spread by visiting remote, crack and keygen sites. These type of sites are infested with a smörgåsbord of malware and an increasing source of system infection. However, the CA Security Advisor Research Blog says they have found MySpace user pages carrying the malicious Virut URL. Either way you can end up with a computer system so badly damaged that recovery is not possible and it cannot be repaired. When that happens there is nothing you can do besides reformatting and reinstalling the OS.

...warez and crack web pages are being used by cybercriminals as download sites for malware related to VIRUT and VIRUX. Searches for serial numbers, cracks, and even antivirus products like Trend Micro yield malcodes that come in the form of executables or self-extracting files...quick links in these sites also lead to malicious files. Ads and banners are also infection vectors...

Keygen and Crack Sites Distribute VIRUX and FakeAV

If your computer was used for online banking, has credit card information or other sensitive data on it, you should disconnect from the Internet until your system is cleaned. All passwords should be changed immediately to include those used for banking, email, eBay, paypal and online forums. You should consider them to be compromised. You should change each password using a clean computer and not the infected one. If not, an attacker may get the new passwords and transaction information. If using a router, you need to reset it with a strong logon/password so the malware cannot gain control before connect again. Banking and credit card institutions should be notified of the possible security breach. Because your computer was compromised please read:Virut is not effectively disinfectable. Your best option is to perform a full reformat as there is no guarantee this infection can be completely removed. In most instances it may have caused so much damage to your system files that it cannot be completely cleaned or repaired. In many cases the infected files cannot be deleted and anti-malware scanners cannot disinfect them properly. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of malware, the best course of action is to wipe the drive clean, reformat and reinstall the OS. Reinstalling Windows without first wiping the entire hard drive with a repartition and/or format will not remove the infection. The reinstall will only overwrite the Windows files. Any malware on the system will still be there afterwards. Please read:

Just these?C'mon Virut gimme some more :thumbsup: grrrrrrrrrrrrr

This virus is driving me crazy.And impressed as well.Never seen anything like that.I recall 10 years ago when I said : "Trojan?What the heck is this..."
And now it's the rootkit...

Anyway EVEN more bad news....Safe Mode was always ending on a blue screen of death,and I decided to run "msconfig" and in BOOT.ini choose
Safe Boot/MINIMAL choices from windows to give it a shot.

But after reboot...

All safe modes AND normall startup will conclude in a blue screen of death...Can't enter windows...

Seems to me that FORMAT and windows REINSTAL is the only choice...I'm free with the format idea as it was a secondary pc to me and that's why I ignored internet protection and antivirus stuff.But not again.

Now 2 very important QUESTIONS:

-1) Is it safe to install my modem on another pc to use the same internet connection i had on the infected one in the same house?It has located my IP hasn't it?I'm really terrified with this virut and if it reaches by any means my primary pc then I shall truly go to Poland and beat these two kids they created it....

-2) I used to make transfer with USB flash drive and i guess it is propably infected.How can I check that without risk?

ohhh....the first link you posted http://www.virustotal.com/analisis/2b23874...ba-1250617541... i can't view it.

Thanks in advance

Not an unwise decision to make. In some instances an infection may have caused so much damage to your system that it cannot be completely cleaned or repaired. Wiping your drive, reformatting, and performing a clean install of the OS or doing a factory restore removes everything and is the safest action but I cannot make that decision for you.

Reformatting a hard disk deletes all data. If you decide to reformat, you can back up all your important documents, data files and photos. The safest practice is not to backup any autorun.ini or .exe files because they may be infected. Some types of malware may disguise itself by adding and hiding its extension to the existing extension of files so be sure you take a close look at the full name. After reformatting, as a precaution, make sure you scan these files with your anti-virus prior to copying them back to your hard drive.

The best proceedure is a low level format. This completely wipes the drive. Then reinstall the OS.
Use the free version of Active@ KillDisk.
Or Darik's Boot And Nuke

The best sources of Information on this are
Reformatting Windows XP
Michael Stevens Tech

Of course also feel free to ask anything on this in the XP forum. They'd be glad to help.

==============================

2 guidelines/rules when backing up

1) Backup all your important data files, pictures, music, work etc... and save it onto an external hard-drive. These files usually include .doc, .txt, .mp3, .jpg etc...
2) Do not backup any executables files or any window files. These include .exe/.scr/.htm/.html/.xml/.zip/.rar files as they may contain traces of malware. Also, .html or .htm files that are webpages should also be avoided.

Download Belarc Advisor - builds a detailed profile of your installed software and hardware, including Microsoft Hotfixes, and displays the results in your Web browser.
Run it and then print out the results, they may be handy.

Since we don't know exactly which infections we're dealing with here, we should take some precautions before we attempt to move files from the infected machine. Run the following on your clean computer, and make sure you insert your flash drives at the prompt.
Download and Run FlashDisinfector

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.


Reinstall Windows Vista
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
VIRUT
Caution: If you are considering reformatting and backing up your data, keep in mind, with a Virut infection, there is always a chance of backed up data reinfecting your system. If the data is that important to you, then you can try to salvage some of it but there is no guarantee so be forewarned that you may have to start over again afterwards if reinfected by attempting to recover your data. Only back up your important documents, personal data files, photos to a CD or DVD drive, not a flash drive or external hard drive as they may become compromised in the process. The safest practice is not to backup any executable files (*.exe), screensavers (*.scr), autorun (.ini) or script files (.php, .asp, and .html) files because they may be infected by malware. Avoid backing up compressed files (.zip, .cab, .rar) that have executable files inside them as some types of malware can penetrate and infect .exe files within compressed files too. Other types of malware may even disguise itself by adding and hiding its extension to the existing extension of file(s) so be sure you look closely at the full file name. After reformatting, scan the backed up data with your anti-virus prior to to copying it back to your hard drive.

Run flash disinfector on your flash drive and all PC's

Explain... HijackTaskManger
Do you mean this in an MBAM log
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\DisableTaskMgr (HijackTaskManager) -> Bad: (1) Good: (0) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

Or do you get a message
Task Manager has been disabled by your administrator"

I get both of them....
Task manager is disabled as well as regedit,but i manage to open them by "gpedit.msc" settings.
Mbam always delete Hijacktaskmanager and Hijackregedit but they always come back on startup.\
And what comes next is a C:/Windows/System32/drivers/rpsolm.sys which is considered as malware and deleted.

However,in every start up it comes back.

Comodo finds nothing(safe from rpsolm.sys) but prevents some to files to connect to the internet which in my opinion want to perform a backdoor connection.

Last,i downloaded cureit,but it says it is not a win32 application :thumbsup:

What now...
Thx

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\DisableRegistryTools HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\DisableTaskMgr

they both have a value of 1 in regedit
Thx

Ok try this on the Task Manager. NOTE:Modifying the registry can be dangerous (and can render your system unbootable) so it's advisable that you make a backup of the registry before proceeding.
Modification of the registry can be EXTREMELY dangerous if you do not know exactly what you are doing so follow the steps that are listed below EXACTLY. if you cannot perform some of these steps or if you have ANY questions please ask BEFORE proceeding.

Backing Up Your Registry
  • Go Here and download ERUNT
    (ERUNT (Emergency Recovery Utility NT) is a free program that allows you to keep a complete backup of your registry and restore it when needed.)
  • Install ERUNT by following the prompts
    (use the default install settings but say no to the portion that asks you to add ERUNT to the start-up folder, if you like you can enable this option later)
  • Start ERUNT
    (either by double clicking on the desktop icon or choosing to start the program at the end of the setup)
  • Choose a location for the backup
    (the default location is C:\WINDOWS\ERDNT which is acceptable).
  • Make sure that at least the first two check boxes are ticked
  • Press OK
  • Press YES to create the folder.
Registry Modifications

For more information about modifying the registry, see this Microsoft article: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/256986


There are 4 methods of repair here,.. Task Manager has been disabled by your administrator

I do have a question.

I managed to download DrWeb cureit under the name Combo-Fix.exe.
However I wasnt able to enter safe mode so I scanned in normal start up.Many files,all infected with win32.Sector.17 (think it's sality).
Then I rebooted and run a malwarebytes quick scan.Nothing found and task manager was ok from reboot...

But in a while it went off again(as well as reg) and that pissed me off a little.

-Is it ok to dwnl this registry backuper?

After scans trojan alert by Comodo pop up,always removing them.(in either internet or off it)...

Yes ERunt is totally safe,
That is the problem with Virut. It is always morhing and hitting all the >exe files.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
