:thumbsup: Thanks to brillant Grinler I think I may be able to cure a computer that has been infected with the Virtumonde DEL-457 annoyance. I had been trying to delete (unsuccessfuly in the registry the file called C:\WINDOWS\msagent\CHARS\psms.exe rerun) but because of the "rerun" it duplicates itself. If someone could please look at the hijackthis log and let me know which files to delete (I will try to delete the psms.exe files but there might be more I'm not aware of) I SURE WOULD APPRECIATE IT.

You are running HijackThis from a temp directory. Please move HijackThis to it's own, permanent folder, e.g. c:\HJT

Download System Security Suite here:
System Security Suite Download & Tutorial. Unzip it to your desktop.
Install the program. Don't use it yet.

Download KillBox here:
KillBox. Unzip it to your desktop.

Disconnect from the Internet.

Note: please read this carefully, as the steps do repeat a few times, but the last step does change a bit.

Start Killbox.exe

Select the Delete on reboot option.

1. In the field labeled "Full path of file to delete" enter C:\Documents and Settings\johnv_2\Local Settings\Temp\smsp.dat
Then press the button that looks like a red circle with a white X in it.
When it asks if you would like to Reboot now, press the NO button.

2. Next In the field labeled "Full path of file to delete" enter C:\WINDOWS\msagent\CHARS\psms.exe
Then press the button that looks like a red circle with a white X in it.
When it asks if you would like to Reboot now, press the NO button.

3. Next In the field labeled "Full path of file to delete" enter C:\WINDOWS\system32\bkinst.exe
Then press the button that looks like a red circle with a white X in it.
When it asks if you would like to Reboot now, press the NO button.

4. Next In the field labeled "Full path of file to delete" enter C:\WINDOWS\System32\hostx.exe
Then press the button that looks like a red circle with a white X in it.
When it asks if you would like to Reboot now, press the YES button.

Your computer will reboot.

With all windows and browsers closed.
Clean out temporary and Temporary Internet Files.
A. Open System Security Suite.
B. In the Items to Clear tab thick:
- Internet Explorer (left pane): Cookies & Temporary files
- My Computer (right pane): Temporary files
Press the Clear Selected Items button.
Close the program.

Run HijackThis!, press "Scan" and tick the boxes next to all these, close all other windows and browsers, then press "Fix Checked" button.

O4 - HKCU\..\RunOnce: [*MS Setup] C:\WINDOWS\system32\bkinst.exe ren time:1097508407


Fix this if it was not set by you:

Connect to the Internet.

Post a new log please.
Everyday is virus day. Do you know where your recovery CDs are ?
Did you create them yet ?

Cryo:

Thank you so much for your help -- the file was not deleted and it keeps changing it's name. I followed your steps twice thinking I better make sure I do it properly. Now it's called java\tapibak. Who on earth develops this stuff? It's an entirely different world. If I may seek your help once again, please look at the HijackThis log file. Again, your help would much be appreciated.

You are running HijackThis from a temp folder.

You need to unzip HijackThis to a folder other than the Temp directory od Desktop. Unzip HijackThis! to it's own folder, e.g. c:/hjt .

Disconnect from the Internet.

Note: please read this carefully, as the steps do repeat a few times, but the last step does change a bit.

Start Killbox.exe

Select the Delete on reboot option.

1. In the field labeled "Full path of file to delete" enter (copy and paste) C:\Documents and Settings\johnv_2\Local Settings\Temp\kabipat.dat
Then press the button that looks like a red circle with a white X in it.
When it asks if you would like to Reboot now, press the NO button.

2. Next In the field labeled "Full path of file to delete" enter (copy and paste) C:\WINDOWS\java\tapibak.exe
Then press the button that looks like a red circle with a white X in it.
When it asks if you would like to Reboot now, press the NO button.

3. Next In the field labeled "Full path of file to delete" enter (copy and paste) C:\WINDOWS\System32\hostx.exe
Then press the button that looks like a red circle with a white X in it.
When it asks if you would like to Reboot now, press the YES button.

4. Your machine will REBOOT.

5. With all windows and browsers closed.
Clean out temporary and Temporary Internet Files.
A. Open System Security Suite.
B. In the Items to Clear tab thick:
- Internet Explorer (left pane): Cookies & Temporary files
- My Computer (right pane): Temporary files
Press the Clear Selected Items button.
Close the program.

Run HijackThis!, press "Scan" and tick the boxes next to all these, close all other windows and browsers, then press "Fix Checked" button.

O2 - BHO: CATLEvents Object - {6A06CDAD-9D2D-42A0-9C91-C0CF7CB9971B} - C:\DOCUME~1\johnv_2\LOCALS~1\Temp\kabipat.dat

O4 - HKLM\..\RunOnce: [*tapibak] C:\WINDOWS\java\tapibak.exe rerun


Connect to the Internet.

Reboot and post a new log.
Everyday is virus day. Do you know where your recovery CDs are ?
Did you create them yet ?

Cryo, your'e a GENIUS!!! I am so grateful for your help and appreciate your patience and guidance. Wheww!! I do believe you destroyed the nasty intruder. I knew something was going on after I rebooted and the message was: "Windows cannot find 'C:\WINDOWS\java\tapibak.exe.' Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again...." Also, in Hijack This the HKLM\..\RunOnce:[*tapibak] file was gone (and not a *file to replace it).

Thank you for your help o' wise one.

Posted below is the Hijack This log. Again, thank you.

1. Cryo, your'e a GENIUS!!!

2. o' wise one.

What can I say about this ? :thumbsup:

Your log looks clean now :flowers:

Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:
  • Disable and Enable System Restore. - If you are using Windows ME or XP then you should disable and reenable system restore to make sure there are no infected files found in a restore point.

    You can find instructions on how to enable and reenable system restore here:

    Managing Windows Millenium System Restore

    or

    Windows XP System Restore Guide

    Renable system restore with instructions from tutorial above

  • Make your Internet Explorer more secure - This can be done by following these simple instructions:
    • From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
    • Click once on the Security tab
    • Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
    • Click once on the Custom Level button.
      • Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
      • Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
      • Change the Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable
      • Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt
      • Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt
      • Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt
      • When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
      • If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
    • Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.
  • Use an AntiVirus Software - It is very important that your computer has an anti-virus software running on your machine. This alone can save you a lot of trouble with malware in the future.

    See this link for a listing of some online & their stand-alone antivirus programs:

    Virus, Spyware, and Malware Protection and Removal Resources

  • Update your AntiVirus Software - It is imperitive that you update your Antivirus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your antivirus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.

  • Use a Firewall - I can not stress how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer. Without a firewall your computer is succeptible to being hacked and taken over. I am very serious about this and see it happen almost every day with my clients. Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly.

    For a tutorial on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones see the link below:

    Understanding and Using Firewalls

  • Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit http://www.windowsupdate.com regularly. This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.

  • Install Spybot - Search and Destroy - Install and download Spybot - Search and Destroy with its TeaTimer option. This will provide realtime spyware & hijacker protection on your computer alongside your virus protection. You should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using Spybot - Search & Destroy to remove Spyware , Malware, and Hijackers

  • Install Ad-Aware - Install and download Ad-Aware. ou should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software in conjunction with Spybot.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using Ad-aware to remove Spyware, Malware, & Hijackers from Your Computer

  • Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will added a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using SpywareBlaster to protect your computer from Spyware and Malware

  • Update all these programs regularly - Make sure you update all the programs I have listed regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.
Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.

Glad I was able to help.
Everyday is virus day. Do you know where your recovery CDs are ?
Did you create them yet ?
