Posted 21 January 2010 - 09:03 PM

I have been fighting with some viruses for the past week or so. The viruses were doing a couple things:
1) Every time I would click on a google link I would be redirected to some random website
2) Random audio clips would play through my computer (i think through an IEXPLORER.exe process)
3) I couldn't open up any anti-virus programs
4) My computer would lock up at random times

Three days ago I took my computer into a school run anti-virus place and the guys there did some work on it. My computer came out much better on the other end (all of the above symptoms were gone), but my security system (eTrust Antivirus) keeps popping up messages about a Win32/TDSS virus and so I'm not sure its all clean. Here are the messages:

The Win32/TDSS!packed was detected in C:\SYSTEM VOLUME INFORMATION\_RESTORE{4B1AEA...\A0122829.DLL.0.AVB. Machine: HAL9000, User: HAL9000\Nancy. Status: No cure for this infection.

The Win32/TDSS!packed was detected in C:\SYSTEM VOLUME INFORMATION\_RESTORE{4B1AEA...\A0122828.DLL.0.AVB. Machine: HAL9000, User: HAL9000\Nancy. Status: No cure for this infection.

The Win32/TDSS!packed was detected in C:\QOOBOX\QUARANTINE\C\WINDOWS\SY...\H8SRTQIAPJIDWAM.DLL.VIR.0.AVB. Machine: HAL9000, User: HAL9000\Nancy. Status: No cure for this infection.

The Win32/TDSS!packed was detected in C:\QOOBOX\QUARANTINE\C\WINDOWS\SY...\H8SRTISQOJOSRIG.DLL.VIR.0.AVB. Machine: HAL9000, User: HAL9000\Nancy. Status: No cure for this infection.

They all had a "code 14" and were classified as critical. The "No cure for this infection" is what really worries me. Any help would be greatly appreciated smile.gif

Here is the DDS.txt:

Hello.

IT appears you ran Combofix. Can you see if the C:\Combofix.txt file is there. If so, please post it. I hope you acknowledge the warning of Combofix's Disclaimer.

Also, please give me an update of the condition of your system. What problems does the system still have?

Download and Run GMER

We will use GMER to scan for rootkits.
  • Please download GMER from one of the following locations, and save it to your desktop:This version will download a zip file you will need to extract first. If you use this mirror, please extract the zip file to your desktop. Unzip/extract the file to its own folder. (Click here for information on how to do this if not sure. Win 2000 users click here.
  • Close any and all open programs, as this process may crash your computer.
  • Double click or on your desktop.
  • When you have done this, close all running programs.
    There is a small chance this application may crash your computer so save any work you have open.
  • Double-click on Gmer.exe to start the program. Right-click and select Run As Administrator... if you are using Vista
  • Allow the gmer.sys driver to load if asked.

    If you receive a WARNING!!! about rootkit activity and are asked to fully scan your system... Click NO.
  • In the right panel, you will see several boxes that have been checked. Please UNCHECK the following:
    • Sections
    • Registry
    • Drives/Partition other than Systemdrive (typically C:\)
    • Show all (Don't miss this one!)
  • Click on and wait for the scan to finish.
  • If you see a rootkit warning window, click OK.
  • Push and save the logfile to your desktop.
  • Copy and Paste the contents of that file in your next post.

If GMER doesn't work in Normal Mode try running it in Safe Mode

Note: Do Not run any program while GMER is running
*Note*: Rootkit scans often produce false positives. Do NOT take any actions on "<--- ROOKIT" entries

~EB
Note: Please do not PM me asking for help, instead please post it in the correct forum requesting for help. Help requests via the PM system will be ignored.

If I'm helping you and I don't reply within 48 hours please feel free to send me a PM.

The help you receive here is always free but if you wish to show your appreciation, you may wish to Posted Image.

Thanks for letting me know.

Preventing Infections in the Future


Please also have a look at the following links, giving some advice and Tips to protect yourself against malware and reduce the potential for re-infection:

Some of the main things you should consider to perform/read are:
  • Having ONE Anti-Virus installed and running with real-time protection
  • Disabling Autorun/Play on Flash-Drive/Removable Drives
  • Avoid gaming sites, underground web pages, pirated software sites, and Peer to Peer Programs
  • Keep Windows Updated through going to Windows Updates
  • Updating Non-Microsoft Programs
  • Keeping Security softwares updated

It is also a good idea to check for the latest versions of commonly installed applications that are regularly patched to fix vulnerabilities. You can check these by visiting Secunia Software Inspector and Calendar of Updates.

Update all programs regularly - Make sure you update all the programs you have installed regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.

Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.
