Hi!

I have windows vista 32 bit, sp 1.

I have I believe version 1.41 of Malwarebytes and updated this before running this quick scan which found this worm. I use firefox 3.5.3

Right now I have malwarebytes on the screen and showing the file item found called worm.autorun as I am not sure what to do.

Also, malwarebytes says it is still scanning which it isn't. Task manager says it is as well when I tried to exit to run a full scan it said it was scanning.

It did not give me a log as is waiting for me to take action.

This is the file it shows in results. I copied it by hand so hope is accurate.

Vendor: worm.autorun
Category: file
Items: C:\Windows\System32\igfxColn_v1409.dll

I need help please as I don't know what to do. I'm leaving the malwarebytes open showing the infection until someone can help to advise me what to do.

I was online when my dsl dropped. As that seemed unusual to me, when the dsl started working again, seconds later, I ran update on nis2009 and did quick scan there and same on malwarebytes. I don't know if there is any connection with dsl dropping and the infection or not.

I appreciate your help!

Thank you,
Michelle

  • 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. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.
  • Exit MBAM when done.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so MBAM can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

Now rescan again with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, but this time perform a Full Scan in normal mode and check all items found for removal. Don't forgot to check for database definition updates through the program's interface (preferable method) before scanning and to reboot afterwards. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. When done, click the Logs tab and copy/paste the contents of the new report in your next reply.

Lets do another anti-malware scan to see if we find anything else that MBAM may have missed.

Please download TFC by Old Timer and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link
  • Save any unsaved work. TFC will close ALL open programs including your browser!
  • Double-click on TFC.exe to run it. If you are using Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator.
  • Click the Start button to begin the cleaning process and let it run uninterrupted to completion.
  • Important! If TFC prompts you to reboot, please do so immediately. If not prompted, manually reboot the machine anyway to ensure a complete clean.
Please download and scan with SUPERAntiSpyware Free
  • Double-click SUPERAntiSypware.exe and use the default settings for installation.
  • An icon will be created on your desktop. Double-click that icon to launch the program.
  • If it will not start, go to Start > All Prgrams > SUPERAntiSpyware and click on Alternate Start.
  • If asked to update the program definitions, click "Yes". If not, update the definitions before scanning by selecting "Check for Updates". (If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here. Double-click on the hyperlink for Download Installer and save SASDEFINITIONS.EXE to your desktop. Then double-click on SASDEFINITIONS.EXE to install the definitions.)
  • In the Main Menu, click the Preferences... button.
  • Click the "General and Startup" tab, and under Start-up Options, make sure "Start SUPERAntiSpyware when Windows starts" box is unchecked.
  • Click the "Scanning Control" tab, and under Scanner Options, make sure the following are checked (leave all others unchecked):
    • Close browsers before scanning.
    • Scan for tracking cookies.
    • Terminate memory threats before quarantining.
  • Click the "Close" button to leave the control center screen and exit the program.
  • Do not run a scan just 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 SUPERAntiSpyware as follows:
  • Launch the program and back on the main screen, under "Scan for Harmful Software" click Scan your computer.
  • On the left, make sure you check C:\Fixed Drive.
  • On the right, under "Complete Scan", choose Perform Complete Scan and click "Next".
  • After the scan is complete, a Scan Summary box will appear with potentially harmful items that were detected. Click "OK".
  • Make sure everything has a checkmark next to it and click "Next".
  • A notification will appear that "Quarantine and Removal is Complete". Click "OK" and then click the "Finish" button to return to the main menu.
  • If asked if you want to reboot, click "Yes" and reboot normally.
  • To retrieve the removal information after reboot, launch SUPERAntispyware again.
    • Click Preferences, then click the Statistics/Logs tab.
    • Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log.
    • If there are several logs, click the current dated log and press View log. A text file will open in your default text editor.
    • Please copy and paste the Scan Log results in your next reply.
  • Click Close to exit the program.
If you cannot boot into safe mode, then perform your scans in normal mode.

-- Some types of malware will disable SUPERAntiSpyware and other security tools. If SAS will not install, please refer to these instructions for using the SAS Installer (SAS_FREE.EXE). If SAS is already installed but will not run, then follow the instructions for using RUNSAS.EXE to launch the program.

Hi! Just got finished with the scans.

Ran full scan Malwarebytes, log here:

Then I ran TFC which did require a reboot.

Then I set SuperAntispyware as you had said, as well leaving 3 things to scan for, checked in preferences. However, when I got in safe mode, the preferences reset to default, so I just unchecked all and checked the 3 again and ran the full scan. Here is the log below, which I notice doesn't show it removed/quarantined, but it did.

That log here:

I just wanted to add something as I see malwarebytes mentions video.

I noticed yesterday that something didn't look right about my add ons in firefox for Java.

Several weeks back I updated to latest version, I believe se6 16. I noticed yesterday it wasn't in the addons. Only a java toolkit shows, and all others are disabled. The others I had disabled after I last updated.

Anyway, I went to java's site today and it said I have version 15 and need to update. Then below that it said to test Java again and it said Java not working. Java se15 is not enabled. I haven't done anything with this yet as ran into current problem in this thread.

I don't understand anything about Java, but just added the above in case it is relevant.

The cookie that SuperAntispyware found is one which now shows daily since I updated to latest instant messenger (microsoft) about five days ago.

That cookie, plus one called (null) shows up when I run NIS2009 quick scan or ccleaner.

Thanks for your help! :thumbsup:

Cookies are text string messages given to a Web browser by a Web server. Whenever you visit a web page or navigate different pages with your browser, the web site generates a unique ID number which your browser stores in a text (cookie) file that is sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from that server. Cookies allow third-party providers such as ad serving networks, spyware or adware providers to track personal information. The main purpose of cookies is to identify users and prepare customized Web pages for them.
  • Persistent cookies have expiration dates set by the Web server when it passes the cookie and are stored on a user's hard drive until they expire or are deleted. These types of cookies are used to store information between visits to a site and collect identifying information about the user such as surfing behavior or preferences for a specific web site.
  • Session (transient) cookies are not saved to the hard drive, do not collect any information and have no set expiration date. They are used to temporarily hold information in the form of a session identification stored in memory as you browse web pages. These types of cookies are cached only while a user is visiting the Web server issuing the session cookie and are deleted from the cache when the user closes the session.
The type of persistent cookie that is a cause for some concern are "tracking cookies" because they can be considered a privacy risk. These types of cookies are used to track your Web browsing habits (your movement from site to site). Ad companies use them to record your activity on all sites where they have placed ads. They can keep count of how many times you visited a web page, store your username and password so you don't have to log in and retain your custom settings. When you visit one of these sites, a cookie is placed on your computer. Each time you visit another site that hosts one of their ads, that same cookie is read, and soon they have assembled a list of which of their sites you have visited and which of their ads that you have clicked on. They are used all over the Internet and advertisement companies often plant them whenever your browser loads one of their banners. Cookies are NOT a "threat". Cookies cannot be used to run code or to deliver viruses to your computer. As text files they cannot be executed to cause any damage. Cookies do not cause any pop ups or install malware.

As long as you surf the Internet, you are going to get cookies and some of your security programs will flag them for removal. However, you can minimize this by referring to:Please follow these steps to remove older version Java components and update:
  • Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) Version 6 and save it to your desktop.
  • Look for "Java Runtime Environment (JRE)" JRE 6 Update 16.
  • Click the Download button to the right.
  • Select your Platform: "Windows".
  • Select your Language: "Multi-language".
  • Read the License Agreement, and then check the box that says: "Accept License Agreement".
  • Click Continue and the page will refresh.
  • Under Required Files, check the box for Windows Offline Installation, click the link below it and save the file to your desktop.
  • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel, double-click on Add/Remove Programs and remove all older versions of Java.
  • Check (highlight) any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button and follow the onscreen instructions for the Java uninstaller.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java versions.
  • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
  • Then from your desktop double-click on jre-6u16-windows-i586.exe to install the newest version.
-- If using Windows Vista and the installer refuses to launch due to insufficient user permissions, then Run As Administrator.
-- If you choose to update via the Java applet in Control Panel, uncheck the option to install the Toolbar unless you want it.
-- The uninstaller incorporated in this release removes previous Updates 10 and above, but does not remove older versions, so they still need to be removed manually.


Note: The Java Quick Starter (JQS.exe) adds a service to improve the initial startup time of Java applets and applications but it's not necessary.
To disable the JQS service if you don't want to use it:
  • Go to Start > Control Panel > Java > Advanced > Miscellaneous and uncheck the box for Java Quick Starter.
  • Click Ok and reboot your computer.
Other than that, how is your computer running now? Are there any more reports/alerts, signs of infection?

Hi!

Thank you for the information and links on cookies. I have reading and work to do for sure.

At the end of your post you asked if I had anymore alerts/signs of infection.

I didn't know I could run more stuff after what you had given me to do until I heard from you, so after reading your reply here asking if any more problems I ran a quick scan on malwarebytes and superantispyware and the quick scans were clean. yay :thumbsup:

I'll run the full scans later.

Here are a few questions I have for you.

I take it that the 2 additional files malwarebytes had found and quarantined were as far as we needed to go?

Do you know what type of infection the worm.autorun is and anything I can do to avoid it?

On the TFC file that I downloaded, is that something I can run every day?

On the Java, I did the download and have that ready to run, but first wanted to clarify.

On Add/remove it only had an older version 15 and removed that.

RE Java stuff in IE8
I do not use internet explorer 8 except when I have to, but I do keep adobe flash and java up to date on it. No idea what happened with Java stuff on either broswers.

I looked in there in add ons and there is a Java Plug in 2 SSV helper. It says the control name is not available.
It wasn't on add/remove.

Do I remove that and if so how would I do that.

Re Java stuff In Firefox

There is Java Deployment Toolkit 6.0.150.3 in firefox's add ons. That also was not in add/remove, so am also wondering how to remove that as well if need to.

I only view youtubes and hulu videos as well as major news networks and their subsidiary videos. I don't have high needs on graphics etc. So I don't know if I need those not that I know what they are anyway. lol :flowers:

Can you let me know if I need to remove those two before I do the jave 16 install?

I so appreciate all the help and time you've given me. :trumpet:

Thanks..
Michelle :inlove:

Hi there!

I posted a message above for you but wanted to add here that I just ran full scans of malwarebytes and superantispyware and nothing was found!

Thank you so very much for getting rid of that worm or worms! :thumbsup:

I am very thankful for you all here at bleepingcomputer! :flowers:

I looked in there in add ons and there is a Java Plug in 2 SSV helper. It says the control name is not available.
It wasn't on add/remove.

For an explanation, please refer to this Microsoft Communities Newsgroup discussion thread.

In FF, detected plugins are listed in the Add-ons window, accessible via "Tools -> Add-ons (or Add-on Manager) -> Plugins"...

Uninstalling plugins

I have Java Deployment Toolkit 6.0.160.1 showing in my Plugin Tab.
This article will help you install or update your JRE and get it working in Firefox

If there are no more problems or signs of infection, you should Create a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been backed up, renamed and 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 Posted Image > Run... and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "Ok". Disk Cleanup will scan your files for several minutes, then open.
  • Click the "More Options" tab, then 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.
Vista users can refer to these links: Create a New Restore Point in Vista and Disk Cleanup in Vista.

Dear Quietman7,

I created the new restore point and removed all the others as per the links given.

Thank you so much for following through with everything I need to do as I surely wouldn't have known to set a new restore and remove the others.

Thanks also for the links for Java related things.

Again, I am so thankful to you for all your work and help in resolving the problem I had.

Take care
Michelle :thumbsup:

You're welcome.

Tips to protect yourself against malware and reduce the potential for re-infection:Keep Windows and Internet Explorer current with all critical updates from Microsoft which will patch many of the security holes through which attackers can gain access to your computer. If you're not sure how to do this, see Microsoft Update helps keep your computer current.

Avoid gaming sites, porn sites, pirated software, cracking tools, keygens, and peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing programs (i.e. Limewire, eMule, uTorrent). 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. Malicious worms, backdoor Trojans IRCBots, and rootkits spread across P2P file sharing networks, gaming, porn and underground sites. Users visiting such pages may see innocuous-looking banner ads containing code which can trigger pop-up ads and malicious 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.Keeping Autorun enabled on USB (pen, thumb, jump) and other removable drives has become a significant security risk due to the increasing number of malware variants that can infect them and transfer the infection to your computer. To learn more about this risk, please read:Many security experts recommend you disable Autorun asap as a method of prevention. Microsoft recommends doing the same.

...Disabling Autorun functionality can help protect customers from attack vectors that involve the execution of arbitrary code by Autorun when inserting a CD-ROM device, USB device, network shares, or other media containing a file system with an Autorun.inf file...

Microsoft Security Advisory (967940): Update for Windows Autorun
