After plugging in my external HDD the other day, AVG immediately came up with an alert that there was a security threat present called: Worm/Generic_c.ZS. I'm viewing the name of the file in the resident shield detection history. The obect in question is an "autorun.inf" file which AVG says is in the E: drive (I don't use an E: drive, that was the HDD's drive name, perhaps meaning that it didn't infect my computer? I'm not sure.)

The main thing is that, I'm not sure if the threat is gone or if it is worth risking. I've done a full scan and AVG now says my computer is clean (except for some tracking cookies, as usual, but no immediate threats) and I've searched my C: drive for the autorun.inf file, which inside contains the text

"
action=BitLocker To Go Reader
icon=BitLockerToGo.exe,-1
ShellExecute=BitLockerToGo.exe
UseAutoPlay=1
"
but I still don't know if it could be hiding anywhere or if it is a major threat. The resident shield contains two actions, one saying that the obect is inacessible and one saying it was moved to virus vault. These are for the same virus. I'll provide an image here.

http://img25.imageshack.us/img25/9676/wormj.jpg

However, when I go into my event history log there is nothing saying that a virus was moved, all that's in the list is a bunch of updates being started and regular things like that.

If anyone can provide me with some help that would be much appreciated. I'm not sure how big of a threat this is and one of my main concerns is, if resident shield detected it, does that mean it stopped it from the source and I'm safe? What other precautions should I go through if any are necessary? I'm also using Windows 7. Thanks for your help.

:S I don't know why this is all the way down to page 4... I guess I'll bump it. I really need some help here. Could anyone spare a moment to help me out with my issue?

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.Download Link 1
Download Link 2
MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
    For instructions with screenshots, please refer to the How to use Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Guide.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the definition updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen:
  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.
  • Exit MBAM when done.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so MBAM can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

Let's double check:

Please download and scan with SUPERAntiSpyware Free
  • Double-click SUPERAntiSypware.exe and use the default settings for installation.
  • An icon will be created on your desktop. Double-click that icon to launch the program.
  • If it will not start, go to Start > All Prgrams > SUPERAntiSpyware and click on Alternate Start.
  • If asked to update the program definitions, click "Yes". If not, update the definitions before scanning by selecting "Check for Updates". (If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here. Double-click on the hyperlink for Download Installer and save SASDEFINITIONS.EXE to your desktop. Then double-click on SASDEFINITIONS.EXE to install the definitions.)
  • In the Main Menu, click the Preferences... button.
  • Click the "General and Startup" tab, and under Start-up Options, make sure "Start SUPERAntiSpyware when Windows starts" box is unchecked.
  • Click the "Scanning Control" tab, and under Scanner Options, make sure the following are checked (leave all others unchecked):
    • Close browsers before scanning.
    • Scan for tracking cookies.
    • Terminate memory threats before quarantining.
  • Click the "Close" button to leave the control center screen and exit the program.
  • Do not run a scan just yet.
Reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".

Scan with SUPERAntiSpyware as follows:
  • Launch the program and back on the main screen, under "Scan for Harmful Software" click Scan your computer.
  • On the left, make sure you check C:\Fixed Drive.
  • On the right, under "Complete Scan", choose Perform Complete Scan and click "Next".
  • After the scan is complete, a Scan Summary box will appear with potentially harmful items that were detected. Click "OK".
  • Make sure everything has a checkmark next to it and click "Next".
  • A notification will appear that "Quarantine and Removal is Complete". Click "OK" and then click the "Finish" button to return to the main menu.
  • If asked if you want to reboot, click "Yes" and reboot normally.
  • To retrieve the removal information after reboot, launch SUPERAntispyware again.
    • Click Preferences, then click the Statistics/Logs tab.
    • Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log.
    • If there are several logs, click the current dated log and press View log. A text file will open in your default text editor.
    • Please copy and paste the Scan Log results in your next reply.
  • Click Close to exit the program.
If you have a problem downloading, installing or getting SAS to run, try downloading and using the SUPERAntiSpyware Portable Scanner instead. Save the randomly named file (i.e. SAS_1710895.COM) to a usb drive or CD and transfer to the infected computer. Then double-click on it to launch and scan. The file is randomly named to help keep malware from blocking the scanner.

Okay, just as a heads up I went into Safe Mode WITH networking, so I could pull up this page and read the instructions properly. Hopefully that doesn't change anything. Anyways, here's the log.

That Trojan is rather peculiar. I've searched online and I've heard it is often classified as a false positive? I don't know. :S I didn't think I'd be infected with anything else other than the worm! (If that.)
Anyway, thanks so much for your help, I really appreciate it. Any further input you can provide would be much appreciated.

It seems like a false positive to me also. I would say that you are clean. You can run this scan as a triple-check if you like:

I'd like us to scan your machine with ESET OnlineScan
  • Hold down Control and click on the following link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
    ESET OnlineScan
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
    • Click on Posted Image to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
    • Double click on the Posted Image icon on your desktop.
  • Check Posted Image
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Check Posted Image
  • Push the Start button.
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  • When the scan completes, push Posted Image
  • Push Posted Image, and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
  • Push the Posted Image button.
  • Push Posted Image

There were no threats found and as such I did not have the option of clicking "List of found threats".

Does this mean that I am clean or are there any more tests (of which I would be more than willing to do) that I need to perform?

I've heard of things like worms infecting .exe's and making themselves invisible as well as other sneaky methods so I am concerned is all. Once again thanks for your help and any further input is appreciated!

I don't think any more scans are required. You seem clean to me.

Ok well I have a few questions if that's okay.

1. So you dont think its possible for the worm to be hiding itself or anything?
2. What should I do with all these programs you instructed me to install now that we're done? Do they conflict with any other programs I'm using? (Currently AVG and Spybot S&D)
3. Let's say in a worst case cenario, the worm was able to hide itself in certain files - if I did a system format, what files would I safely be able to keep without risk of a worm somehow covertly infecting them? (Images, Videos, Bookmarks etc.)

To answer your questions:

1. I think this is highly unlikely. One of the scans we ran would have picked it up.
2. You can delete them all if you like. Although, personally I would keep Malwarebytes and run a weekly scan with it. I think it is a much better scanner than Spybot.
3. It is possible for image and video files to become infected, however one of the scans we ran would almost certainly have flagged it as infected.

Okay well thanks so much for helping me out. It's good to know there are people out there that are willing to lend a helping hand to strangers when it comes to these kinds of situations. :thumbsup: Thanks so much once again!

Sorry I have another question :S

I just went to http://www.superantispyware.com/supportfaq...lay.html?faq=47 to try and uninstall Super Anti Spy Ware
It gave me an Uninstaller EXE to run, which I did, and followed all instructions, but SAS is still on my PC? Is the .exe I downloaded legit?

The download is okay. Did you try the "Alternate Uninstallation Method"?

Yeah I tried the one at the bottom of their instruction page and it seemed to work.

Is it okay to keep both Spybot and Malwarebyte's? They won't conflict with each other won't they?

Okay then I suppose that's all I'll be needing help with. Thanks so much for all your help.
