Specs:
Dell Dimension 4600
Windows XP, SP 3
Internet Explorer v 7.0.5730.11
Windows Live OneCare
Lavasoft Ad-Aware Free v 8.0.3

Last night I was reading posts at Powerline, a popular political blog, and I also had an IE tab open with Yahoo's homepage and another with an article at Slate.com. (I doubt the infection came from any of these reputable sites, so I suspect it resurfaced from two years ago when I thought I had cleaned out a Vundo infection.) Suddenly OneCare gave me a message saying it had detected malware and asked me if I wanted to remove it, so I told it to do so. When it was done, it said it had successfully removed Yazzle.? (I don't remember the extension). That is when the pop-up ads started to appear.

I don't remember if OneCare prompted me to restart or if I did so on my own, but when Windows rebooted it gave me an error message saying it could not find muribabi.dll. I looked up that filename online and learned it is malware that OneCare probably removed, so I ran msconfig to prevent Windows from trying to launch it every time I boot up. That worked, but I still got the pop-ups and a subsequent OneCare full scan (software and definitions are up to date) detected no viruses or spyware. I then ran an Ad-Aware scan and it "detected" three registry entries, which are listed in the log as follows:

Skipped items:
Description: HKLM:HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{dc05c27c-e7fd-482b-980f-dce44469064e}: Family Name: unknown Clean status: Success Item ID: 1 Family ID: 0
Description: HKLM:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ShellServiceObjectDelayLoad:mohubukon Family Name: unknown Clean status: Success Item ID: 1 Family ID: 0
Description: HKLM:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\SharedTaskScheduler:{dc05c27c-e7fd-482b-980f-dce44469064e} Family Name: unknown Clean status: Success Item ID: 1 Family ID: 0


After running the Ad-Aware scan and taking the action it recommended, I still get the pop-up ads. The pop-ups only appear when I navigate from one web page to another, but not every time I do so, and they usually appear 10-20 seconds after the navigation.

I'd appreciate any help you can provide.

Hello and welcome please run these next. If you have Spybot installed temporarily disable it.
Next run ATF:
Note: On Vista, "Windows Temp" is disabled. To empty "Windows Temp" ATF-Cleaner must be "Run as an Administrator".

Please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune & save it to your desktop.
  • Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
  • Under Main "Select Files to Delete" choose: Select All.
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
  • If you use Firefox browser click Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
    If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
  • If you use Opera browser click Opera at the top and choose: Select All
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
    If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
  • Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.

Next run MBAM (MalwareBytes):

NOTE: Before saving MBAM please rename it to zztoy.exe....now save it to your desktop.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.

alternate download link

MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.
  • 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 definition 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. 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.

Wow, thanks; that was a quick reply! And I like your sig with 2 Tim 4:3.

I followed all your instructions and Anti-Malware produced the log at the end of this post. But before I did so I corrected my clock's display from 24-hour format to AM/PM. That's the only change I made between my previous post and downloading ATF Cleaner.

Anti-Malware required a reboot to remove lewiyidi.dll and zawetuba.dll. When Windows rebooted, it gave me repeated error messages similar to the following:

Title bar: BCMSMMSG.exe - Bad image

Message: The application or DLL C:\WINDOWS\system32\lewiyidi.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette.


Each time, the error box had a different 'filename'.exe in the title bar. The message also alternated between lewiyidi.dll and zawetuba.dll. I also get these messages whenever I open an application, such as Notepad and Internet Explorer, with notepad.exe and iexplore.exe in the title bar.

On the positive side, I no longer get the pop-up ads.

Finally, here's the log:

Then double-click on SASDEFINITIONS.EXE to install the definitions.)
  • In the Main Menu, click the Preferences... button.

  • 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.

  • 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.

I ran SUPERAntiSpyware just as instructed. When I use Autoruns, I'm still showing c:\windows\system32\lewiyidi.dll twice under HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows\Appinit_Dlls, and both with check marks next to them. It looks like c:\windows\system32\zawetuba.dll is still there, too, under HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run and a few other categories, but there are no check marks beside any of those. And, of course, I still get the error messages regarding those two files every time I open an app.

Here's the SUPERAntiSpyware log:

Hi, I was trying to find why Super did not remove this. It's on their list.

Let's try an Online scanner
.
I'd like us to scan your machine with ESET OnlineScan
  • Hold down Control and click on the following link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
    ESET OnlineScan
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
    • Click on Posted Image to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
    • Double click on the Posted Image icon on your desktop.
  • Check Posted Image
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Check Posted Image
  • Push the Start button.
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  • When the scan completes, push Posted Image
  • Push Posted Image, and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
  • Push the Posted Image button.
  • Push Posted Image

Now run Drweb-cureit
Before we start fixing anything you should print out these instructions or copy them to a NotePad file so they will be accessible. Some steps will require you to disconnect from the Internet or use Safe Mode and you will not have access to this page.

Please download Dr.Web CureIt and save it to your desktop. DO NOT perform a scan yet.
alternate download link
Note: The file will be randomly named (i.e. 5mkuvc4z.exe).

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 the randomly named file 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. (This will move any detected files to the C:\Documents and Settings\userprofile\DoctorWeb\Quarantine folder if they can't be cured)
  • After the Express Scan is finished, 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 Apply, Ok.
  • Back at the main window, click the green arrow "Start Scanning" button on the right under the Dr.Web logo.
  • Please be patient as this scan could take a long time to complete.
  • When the scan has finished, a message will be displayed at the bottom indicating if any viruses were found.
  • Click Select All, then choose Cure > 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 followed your instructions to use ESET, but cannot get past bullet 5. When I click start, the pop-up window goes blank except for what looks like the empty frame of a picture that cannot download. In the upper-left corner of the "empty frame" there is a small (~14x16 pixels) white rectangle containing tiny shapes: red square, a blue triangle, and a green pentagon. There were no security warnings from my browser (IE7). I even tried turning off OneCare, but I still couldn't get the scan to run. I read all the FAQ, but I just can't get it to work.

Wow, those were some long downloads and scans! I followed all your instructions and I still get the following error message twice every time I open an app, plus a dozen times at bootup:

"The application or DLL C:\WINDOWS\system32\lewiyidi.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette."

No more zawetuba.dll, though. The file is still there, according to AutoRuns, but unchecking it managed to stop it from autoloading. At the same time I stopped zawetuba from autoloading, lewiyidi showed up twice in the Appinit_Dlls key.

Thanks for the heads up. I didn't find anything related to Yazzle in Add/Remove Programs.

Here's the ESET scan log:

And DrWeb:

Is it appropriate that DrWeb removed SmitfraudFix from my desktop? I thought DrWeb was just detecting malware that SmitfraudFix had quarantined, but the log seems to suggest that SmitfraudFix itself is malware (a hacker tool). Is that just a false positive?

Ok ,yes that is normal for some tools to remove Smitfraud. They don't know it's a good tool, only that it is invading.
But I see nothing else I can remove here. I and you know it is still there so we will need to move to the HJT forum.

ou will need to run HJT/DDS.
Please follow this guide. go and do steps 6 thru 8 ,, Preparation Guide For Use Before Using Hijackthis. Then go here HijackThis Logs and Virus/Trojan/Spyware/Malware Removal ,click New Topic,give it a relevant Title and post that complete log.

Let me know if it went OK.

Hello,

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/267785/infected-with-virtumondevundo-yazzle-possibly-more/ 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:
Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.
