Hotmail account got hijacked and I read that a virus called Confictor could cause the whole thing. To verify I started a batalion of virus and spyware checking. Most my normal stuff detected nothing except for spybots Pinfi.parite and PCtools Murlo (which I cant clean less I buy but no other detectors could find it.

I've scanned and cleaned with Vipre, Spybot 6.2, Malwarebytes, Superantispyware, PCTools, F Secure, and though I wasnt suppose to run without you telling me to I ran Combo Fix.

Of special note when the Combofix ran it said rootkit activity pointing at the LVPrcInj01.dll
PC went a little crasy after PCtools installed I think conflicting with Vipre or something. PC would lock up. The Murlo threats it found had referances to Catchme registry entries so maybe false positives?
Also attached per instructions are the GMER log.

*edit: added DDS.scr log including attach.txt and dds.txt

Think I got missed, know I'm not suppose to bump but its been 6 days and I think I'm on page 20 or so now. I verified LVPrcInj01.dll was a false positive by combofix. It quarantined it so I changed it back to a dll and uploaded to virustotal, also checked file size and signatures and all was good.

That only leaves pinfi.parite worm i found and all my logs if I missed something.
Please look it over and let me know.

EDIT: Please be patient. There are over 250 unanswered topics in this forum at present at the current average wait time to receive help is 5-6 days. You should get a response soon. ~BP

Was fixing for my friend but he has it back now. Was hoping the logs already posted would help indicate there is something I missed because as far as I could tell it was clean except for pinfi.parite which I read does not hijack hotmail accounts.
My friend couldnt access his email account, found his password was changed, his security question was changed, his backup email account changed. He's about 45 years old and works at a church, not exactly high risk activities.
He then had 8 years worth of contacts emailed saying he was in london at a seminar for empowering youth and lost his wallet and needed money sent to him.
8 years worth of church contacts their will probably be more then one that wants to help him in london.

I first told him he was probably "phished" by registering at a non-legit website. But then I read up on Confictor virus and he allowed me to look for a threat that could have done this. As stated above, I found nothing with scanning with every safe program I trusted except pinfi.parite
I went through every page of his 2 week history and found no site he was at that might have stolen his info.

Based on the logs I was hoping you could check to see if anything stands out that I could have missed. But realistically Im looking for something that probably isnt there.

Thanks for your help,
Mike

Hello, sunwolf25
Welcome to the Bleeping Computer Forums. My name is Thomas (Tom is fine), and I will be helping you fixing your problems.

If you do not make a reply in 4-5 days, we will have to close your topic.

You may want to keep the link to this topic in your favourites. Alternatively, you can click the button at the top bar of this topic and Track this Topic. The topics you are tracking can be found here.

Please take note of some guidelines for this fix:
  • Refrain from making any changes to your computer including installing/uninstall programs, deleting files, modifying the registry, and running scanners or tools. Doing so could cause changes to the directions I have to give you and prolong the time required. Further more, you should not be taking any advice relating to this computer from any other source throughout the course of this fix.
  • If you do not understand any step(s) provided, please do not hesitate to ask before continuing. I would much rather clarify instructions or explain them differently than have something important broken.
  • Even if things appear to be better, it might not mean we are finished. Please continue to follow my instructions and reply back until I give you the "all clean". We do not want to clean you part-way, only to have the system re-infect itself.
  • Please reply using the button in the lower right hand corner of your screen. Do not start a new topic. The logs that you post should be pasted directly into the reply. Only attach them if requested or if they do not fit into the post.
  • Old topics are closed after 3 days with no reply, and working topics are closed after 5 days. If for any reason you cannot complete instructions within that time, that's fine, just post back here so that we know you're still here.
  • Please set your system to show all files.
    Click Start, open My Computer, select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
    Select the View Tab. Under the Hidden files and folders heading, select Show hidden files and folders.
    Uncheck: Hide file extensions for known file types
    Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
    Click Yes to confirm.





Please go here and have a look how you can disable your security software.

Download Combofix from any of the links below but rename it to before saving it to your desktop.

Link 1
Link 2



--------------------------------------------------------------------

Double click on the renamed Combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
    When finished, it will produce a report for you.
  • As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.
  • Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.
**Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.



Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:



Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.

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

This tool is not a toy and not for everyday use.
ComboFix SHOULD NOT be used unless requested by a forum helper

Hi,


Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate 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.
  • 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.





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 button.
