Hi all,

I found the forum after researching my symptoms and it's been extremely helpful so far! But now I think this has gotten beyond a DIY repair job and I'm hoping the experts here can do their magic.


I've been dealing with a google redirect problem for the past few days. I knew something was wrong immediately because those fake antivirus ads popped up and then firefox crashed. I went through the standard cleanup protocol - rkill, malwarebytes - and that seemed to get rid of most of the fake antivirus popups. However, even after all that, I noticed that firefox would redirect me to ad sites when I clicked on certain google links. Eventually, I must have picked up additional malware from those redirect websites because I've been experiencing intermittent flareups with fake antivirus ads. Malwarebytes catches the new stuff but I suspect there's a deeper rootkit problem.

I've run TDSSkiller and it says atapi.sys is infected but the file isn't cleaned up after reboot. My research so far leads me to suspect this is some kind of TDSS/TDL3 variant - this is just my self-diagnosis so I hope I can get a second opinion and possibly some help removing this!

This is only a problem with firefox, I'm redirect and popup free with k-meleon, which I'm using now.

I should also note that, just a few minutes ago, lsass.exe starting eating up 100% of my CPU so I had to do a hard restart, after which the Windows logon page was changed and I seem to have lost the ability to fast switch users - and fast user switching service is running...?

I'm using SP3 with the latest updates, although I read that microsoft will not be updating rootkit-infected machines with the latest updates so I might not have received some patches sad.gif

I've also tried SuperAntiSpyware, Hitman Pro, Sophos anti-rootkit (which says I'm clean)

Gmer says this:

GMER 1.0.15.15281 - http://www.gmer.net

That's from when I first open up GMER and it does its initial quick scan. I tried the full scan but my computer crashes halfway through.


Here is my DDS.txt:

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help. Here at Bleeping Computer we get overwhelmed at times, and we are trying our best to keep up. Please note that your topic was not intentionally overlooked. Our mission is to help everyone in need, but sometimes it takes just a little longer to get to every request for help. No one is ignored here.

If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know. If not please perform the following steps below so we can have a look at the current condition of your machine.

If you have not done so, include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

Upon completing the steps below another staff member will review and take the steps necessary with you to get your machine back in working order clean and free of malware.

If you have already posted a DDS log, please do so again, as your situation may have changed.
Use the 'Add Reply' and add the new log to this thread.


Thanks and again sorry for the delay.

We need to see some information about what is happening in your machine. Please perform the following scan:
  • Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links. Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the DDS icon, allow it to run.
  • A small box will open, with an explaination about the tool. No input is needed, the scan is running.
  • Notepad will open with the results.
  • Follow the instructions that pop up for posting the results.
  • Close the program window, and delete the program from your desktop.
Please note: You may have to disable any script protection running if the scan fails to run. After downloading the tool, disconnect from the internet and disable all antivirus protection. Run the scan, enable your A/V and reconnect to the internet.

Information on A/V control HERE



Please download GMER from one of the following locations and save it to your desktop:
  • Main Mirror
    This version will download a randomly named file (Recommended)
  • Zipped Mirror
    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.
  • Disconnect from the Internet and close all running programs.
  • Temporarily disable any real-time active protection so your security programs will not conflict with gmer's driver.
  • Double-click on the randomly named GMER file (i.e. n7gmo46c.exe) and allow the gmer.sys driver to load if asked.
  • Note: If you downloaded the zipped version, extract the file to its own folder such as C:\gmer and then double-click on gmer.exe.


  • GMER will open to the Rootkit/Malware tab and perform an automatic quick scan when first run. (do not use the computer while the scan is in progress)
  • If you receive a WARNING!!! about rootkit activity and are asked to fully scan your system...click NO.
  • Now click the Scan button. If you see a rootkit warning window, click OK.
  • When the scan is finished, click the Save... button to save the scan results to your Desktop. Save the file as gmer.log.
  • Click the Copy button and paste the results into your next reply.
  • Exit GMER and re-enable all active protection when done.
-- If you encounter any problems, try running GMER in Safe Mode.
regards,
schrauber
