Posted 11 December 2009 - 10:04 AM

My Windows 2008 Standard Terminal Server has a hijack. User are being redirected to r9237242.cn. Searches for this issue indicate the TDSS.y Rootkit. There is nothing unusual in the HJT log. Other references to this issue identified atapi.sys as the corrupted file by Esage Labs' Rootkit.Win32.TDSS remover. In my case it identified HPCISSs.sys as the culprit.

I compared the file to other versions on other systems I support, and submitted it to VirusTotal, and found nothing abnormal. I'm thinking it may be a false positive.

I also tried GMER. It initially identified HPCISSs.sys as a suspicious file, but when I started the scan it locked up the server requiring a reboot.

Some other common programs do not work on server platforms (ComboFix). Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware found nothing.

Does anyone have suggestions?

Here is the DDS log:
