Hi

My son's laptop became infected with the rootkit.tdss... and possibly other malware. It was running very slow, and then got to a point where it froze whenever you tried to access a program on bootup.

He is at uni, so I can't get my hands on the machine, but I have got him to boot into safe mode and run first Adaware, Spybot and Kaspersky antivirus which identified problems. I then asked him to boot into safe mode with networking and download Malwarebytes. This identified problems as follows:
Memory Processes Infected: 0
Memory Modules Infected: 0
Registry Keys Infected: 21
Registry Values Infected: 2
Registry Data Items Infected: 4
Folders Infected: 2
Files Infected: 19

With some of these marked for deletion on reboot, he rebooted and reran Malwarebytes with result:
Memory Processes Infected: 0
Memory Modules Infected: 0
Registry Keys Infected: 0
Registry Values Infected: 1
Registry Data Items Infected: 1
Folders Infected: 0
Files Infected: 2

Registry Values Infected:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Network\uid (Malware.Trace) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

Registry Data Items Infected:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Userinit (Hijack.Userinit) -> Bad: (C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe,C:\WINDOWS\system32\sdra64.exe,) Good: (Userinit.exe) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

Files Infected:
C:\Avenger\sdra64.exe (Trojan.Zbot) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.
C:\System Volume Information\_restore{9E67248A-F152-4710-A4B8-745CD4FFE586}\RP635\A0646211.sys (Rootkit.TDSS) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

With all the infected items marked as deleted successfully on this second run, I then got him to run a HiJackThis log, which is as follows:

Is it possible to tell from this if the nasty little bug is gone? I know how difficult they are to get rid of, and am worried it will reinfect. At the moment, having undergone a lecture on how to practice safe computing (!), he is worried enough to want to stay in safe mode until he can be sure the machine is clean.

Many thanks in advance for all advice and assistance smile.gif

Hello Sorrow-Miss 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.



In order to better assist you I will need the following and I will need for it to be run in Normal Mode if at all possible.




Download DDS and save it to your desktop from here or here.
Disable any script blocker, and then double click dds.scr to run the tool.
  • When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:
    1. DDS.txt
    2. Attach.txt
  • Save both reports to your desktop, post the DDS.txt in the reply window and attach the Attach.txt









  • If you have any CD emulation software such as Daemon or Alcohol please run the following before you run GMER. If you do not skip DeFogger and go right on to GMER. If you do use it let me know so we can reenable when we finish up.



    Disable:


    Please download DeFogger to your desktop.

    Double click DeFogger to run the tool.
    • The application window will appear
    • Click the Disable button to disable your CD Emulation drivers.
    • Click Yes to continue
    • A 'Finished!' message will appear
    • Click OK
    • DeFogger will now ask to reboot the machine - click OK
    IMPORTANT! If you receive an error message while running DeFogger, please post the log defogger_disable which will appear on your desktop.

    Do not re-enable these drivers until otherwise instructed.



    Disable your antivirus along with other security programs such as Windows Defender or TeaTimer before running the following. Instructions can be found Here.



    Download GMER Rootkit Scanner from here to your desktop.
    • Double click the exe file.
    • If it gives you a warning about rootkit activity and asks if you want to run scan...click on NO, then use the following settings for a more complete scan.



      Click the image to enlarge it


    • In the right panel, you will see several boxes that have been checked. Uncheck the following ...
      • Sections
      • IAT/EAT
      • Drives/Partition other than Systemdrive (typically C:\)
      • Show All (don't miss this one)
    • Then click the Scan button & wait for it to finish.
    • Once done click on the [Save..] button, and in the File name area, type in "Gmer.txt" or it will save as a .log file which cannot be uploaded to your post.
    Save it where you can easily find it, such as your desktop, and post it in reply.

    **Caution**
    Rootkit scans often produce false positives. Do NOT take any action on any "<--- ROOKIT" entries




    If GMER does not want to run add the following to those that you unchecked and try it again:

    • Registry
    • Files












    Note: Please make only the Attach.txt from DDS an attachment, post the other logs directly into the reply window.



    Thanks,
