Posted 05 March 2010 - 01:07 AM

I have been having some problems lately but in the last week or so things have really taken a turn for the worst.

My problem started with mainly error messages popping up when I tried to watch videos. Then firefox started crashing for no particular reason and clicking links would send me to other pages advertising this and that, and then finally today when i started firefox, a message popped up saying "www.google.com says: Are you human?" and wouldn't let me close the message regardless of what was pressed so I went to the task manager and ended task. Ad-aware then started a "smart scan" and found some cookies that were quarantined and then a trojan labeled...

Family: win32trojanfraudpack
Catagory: Malware
Quantity: 2
TAI: 10

File: C:\users\Travis\appd\.\startup\scandisk.dll
Process: C:\users\travis\ntload.dll

When i tried to quarantine the File and Process a error report popped up saying "ad aware has shut down unexpectedly and has generated an error report" and i clicked ok to send the report.

I then found this website and followed the pre-posting guidlines by Disabling my CD Emulator Driver with Defrogger
Downloaded the DDS tool and saved its log....

============= FINISH: 21:50:07.59 ===============

Then I downloaded an ran the gmer log and it crashed my computer once and froze it a second time. I'll try it again once this is posted...
I also uploaded the attach.txt file

I greatly appreciate your help in solving this problem.

Hello TravisJo smile.gif Welcome to the BC HijackThis Log and Analysis forum. I will be assisting you in cleaning up your system.

I ask that you refrain from running tools other than those we suggest while we are cleaning up your computer. The reason for this is so we know what is going on with the machine at any time. Some programs can interfere with others and hamper the recovery process.

In the upper right hand corner of the topic you will see a button called Options. If you click on this in the drop-down menu you can choose Track this topic. By doing this and then choosing Immediate E-Mail notification and then clicking on Proceed you will be advised when we respond the your topic and facilitate the cleaning of your machine.

Please keep in mind that we have a large backlog of users just like yourself waiting to be helped so try to be as timely as possible in your replies. Since we do this on a part-time voluntary basis we are limited on how many logs we can respond to and keep open due to time restraints. If you have to be away or can't answer for some other reason just let me know. Thank you for your understanding.

After 5 days if a topic is not replied to we assume it has been abandoned and it is closed.

Did you have any luck running GMER? If not try running it again but be sure you disable Spybot's TeaTimer which is showing up as running. Instructions HERE. If that doesn't work along with what you unchecked the first time uncheck the following and try it then:

  • Registry
  • Files

If none of this works try running it in Safe Mode.

Note: Please post the log in the reply window and do not make it an attachment. Do this with all subsequent replies unless I ask otherwise.

Due to the large amount of backlogs we have I cannot respond to PMs for help unless I am already working with you

You're welcome!

Please download ComboFix from one of these locations:

Link 1
Link 2

* IMPORTANT !!! Save ComboFix.exe to your Desktop
  • Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools. Instruction can be found HERE
  • Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.

When finished, it will produce a log for you. Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply.

Let's see if we can tie the cause of your infection together. You stated you were watching movies when you started having problems. Notice that ComboFix notified us of a possible bits exploit with the following file:

Note: To anyone reading this it is highly inadvisable to change the url in the links for swarmcast.net so you can visit the site in question. That is unless you just want to see if you can become infected also. smile.gif

----- BITS: Possible infected sites -----


When we check out the file from above we get the following:


Which tell us this:

* Attention! The following threat category was identified:

Threat Category Description
A program that downloads files to the local computer that may represent security ris

And this:

* Heuristically identified capability to use BITS (Background Intelligent Transfer Service) to schedule the following download task:
o hxxp://updates.swarmcast.net/swarmcast/current/autobahnacceleratorinstall.txt

And if you read at the first of the link I supplied you will see the level of security risk is considered high with this.

My suggestion as you might guess is to delete the folder and not use this site anymore.

Let me know if you have any questions and we'll move on along.

I'm sorry but I am unaware on how to remove the folder....or which folder you are speaking of.
The mlb-nextdef was a plug-in I installed upon purchase of my mlb.tv subscription and was to allow the DVR and other special features to the mlb.tv video player. I don't know if thats what is causing the problem now or not, but the plug in was downloaded long after the problems started...with that said I am awaiting your further instructions...

Thanks again

The folder in question is Swarmcast, see the entry below. According to your logs it was created on the 3rd of this month and the file in question was updates.swarmcast.net which I took to be part of the Swarmcast download. It might be the rest of the thing is legit I don't really know but it sure looks suspicious since the file in question has the name it does. If you wish to keep it of course it's up to you but if you want to delete it let me know, it's a fairly simply thing to do.

Sounds good!

Let's run this scan next and the other thing is the Attach.txt from your running of DDS didn't show up in your post. If you still have it you can just post it in the reply window. If you don't you may have to run DDS again.

It's important to run this online scan to search for any remnants. It can take some time, so please be patient and allow it to run it's full course:

Please do a scan with Kaspersky Online Scanner. Please note: Kaspersky requires Java Runtime Environment (JRE) be installed before scanning for malware, as ActiveX is no longer being used.)

If you are using Windows Vista, open your browser by right-clicking on its icon and select 'Run as administrator' to perform this scan.
  • Open the Kaspersky WebScanner
  • Click on the button on the main page.
  • The program will launch and fill in the Information section on the left.
  • Read the "Requirements and Limitations" then press the button.
  • The program will begin downloading the latest program and definition files. It may take a while so please be patient and let it finish.
  • Once the files have been downloaded, click on the ...button.
    In the scan settings make sure the following are selected:
    • Detect malicious programs of the following categories:
      Viruses, Worms, Trojan Horses, Rootkits
      Spyware, Adware, Dialers and other potentially dangerous programs
    • Scan compound files (doesn't apply to the File scan area):
      Mail databases
      By default the above items should already be checked.
    • Click the button, if you made any changes.
  • Now under the Scan section on the left:

    Select My Computer
  • The program will now start and scan your system. This will run for a while, be patient and let it finish.
  • Once the scan is complete, click on View scan report
  • Now, click on the Save Report as button.
  • In the drop down box labeled Files of type change the type to Text file.
  • Save the file to your desktop.
  • Copy and paste that information in your next post.
You can refer to this animation by sundavis if needed.

You can see the two showing in the Kaspersky scan as infected. Using Windows Explorer you should be able to navigate to them and do a deletion. If for some reason they won't delete I can use ComboFix to get them off.

A couple of other things I see in your Add/Remove section:

Please uninstall older version of Adobe Reader before installing the latest version

* Click Start
* Control Panel
* Double clicking on Add/Remove Programs
* Locate older version of Adobe Reader and click on Change/Remove to uninstall it
* Click HERE to download the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader.
* Select your Windows version and click onDownload. If you are using Internet Explorer, you will receive prompts. Allow the installation to be ran and it will be installed automatically for you. If you are using other browsers, it will prompt you to save a file. Save this file to your desktop and run it to install the latest version of Adobe Reader.
* Close your Internet browser and open it again.

Your Java is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system. Please follow these steps to remove older version Java components and update.
  • Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 18 and save it to your desktop.
  • Scroll down to where it says JDK 6 Update 18 (JDK or JRE)
  • Click the Download JRE button to the right
  • Select the Windows platform from the dropdown menu.
  • Read the License Agreement and then check the box that says: "I agree to the Java SE Runtime Environment 6u18 with JavaFX 1 License Agreement". Click on Continue.The page will refresh.
  • Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation and save the file to your desktop.
  • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
  • Go to Start > Control Panel, double-click on Add or Remove Programs and remove all older versions of Java.
  • Check (highlight) any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE or Java™ 6) in the name.
  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
  • 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-6u18-windows-i586-p.exe to install the newest version.
  • After the install is complete, go into the Control Panel (using Classic View) and double-click the Java Icon. (looks like a coffee cup)
    • On the General tab, under Temporary Internet Files, click the Settings button.
    • Next, click on the Delete Files button
    • There are two options in the window to clear the cache - Leave BOTH Checked

I did the required tasks and my computer seems to be running a lot better. Anything else i should do to make sure we're in the clear?

No, that should wrap us up. Glad to hear the computer is running better. smile.gif

We'll clean up out tools and I have some last suggestions for you.

Uninstall Combofix
  • Press the Windows Key + R on your keyboard.
  • Now copy & paste the green bolded text in the run-box and click OK.

    ComboFix /Uninstall

    <Notice the space between the "x" and "/".>

  • The following will implement some very important cleanup procedures as well as reset System Restore points.

You can also go ahead and delete both DDS and GMER from your Desktop if you haven't already done so.

Below are some steps to follow in order to dramatically lower the chances of reinfection
You may have already implemented some of the steps below, however you should follow any steps that you have not already implemented
  1. Make sure you install all the security updates for Windows, Internet explorer & Microsoft Office
    Whenever a security problem in its software is found, Microsoft will usually create a patch for it to that after the patch is installed, attackers can't use the vulnerability to install malicious software on your PC, so keeping up with these patches will help to prevent malicious software being installed on your PC
    Go here to check for & install updates to Microsoft applications
    Note: The update process uses activex, so you will need to use internet explorer for it, and allow the activex control that it wants to install
  2. Keep your non-Microsoft applications updated as well
    Microsoft isn't the only company whose products can contain security vulnerabilities, to check for other vulnerable programs running on your PC that are in need of an update, you can use the Secunia Software Inspector - I suggest that you run it at least once a month
  3. Make Internet Explorer more secure
    Click Start > Run
    Type Inetcpl.cpl & click OK
    Click on the Security tab
    Click Reset all zones to default level
    Make sure the Internet Zone is selected & Click Custom level
    In the ActiveX section, set the first two options ("Download signed and unsigned ActiveX controls) to "Prompt", and ("Initialize and Script ActiveX controls not marked as safe") to "Disable".
    Next Click OK, then Apply button and then OK to exit the Internet Properties page.
  4. Install SpywareBlaster & make sure to update it regularly
    SpywareBlaster sets killbits in the registry to prevent known malicious activex controls from installing themselves on your computer.
    If you don't know what activex controls are, see here
    You can download SpywareBlaster from here
  5. Finally, this is very important. It is absolutely essential to keep all of your security programs up to date

If you have any other questions or issues feel free to ask as I will be checking back on this topic.

Other than that if there is nothing else I can do for you then I wish you good luck in the future and thank you for using our forum. smile.gif
