Grateful if you can help me with this impossible worm - a VBS varient, perhaps SASAN.D or SLOGOD.M.



* Propogates rapidly through insertion of memory stick (I got it at hotel business centre in Djibouti - it's in my thumbdrives, laptop, and my desktop)
* Every 10 seconds it tries to activate CD-ROM drive (which makes a noise)
* Persistent "Windows - No Disk" Exception Processing Message c0000013 Parameters 75b6bf7c 4 75b6bf7c 75b6bf7c
* Two new hidden files installed on memory stick within a few seconds of re-formatting:
1) C:\WINDOWS\system32/explorer.vbe
2) autorum.inf

Running HijackThis, I can see it:

F2 - REG:system.ini: UserInit=C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe,C:\WINDOWS\system32\wscript.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\explorer.vbe

It may also be the wscript.exe that's running in the background.

What I have tried:

I've scanned with SpyBot S&D, Iobit Security 360, AVG, STOPZilla, and Windows OneCare Safety Scanner - to no avail. On both my laptop and PC. OneCare identified Worm:VBS/Slogod.M in c:/windows/system32/explorer.vbe in both computers, but cannot remove it.

I deactivated the warning messages that were slowing the machine by changing errormode value from 0 to 2 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Windows]. This does not impact the infection though, just palliates the symptoms.

Can't follow directions for disabling the worm, as none of the registry files match those on my computer - http://about-threats.trendmicro.com/Archiv...=VBS_AGENT.AMAF

Please help.

Hello HJT type log analysis is not allowed in this forum. It must be done in the forum here.
You may either post the complete HJT kog along with your inquiry or submit a DDS log.

Please go here....
Preparation Guide ,do steps 6 - 9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9,which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
If Gmer won't run,skip it and move on.

Let me know if that went well.

Hi Boopme,

I reposted in the correct forum (couldn't get it to work last night) together with the DDS and GMER logs.

Thanks a lot for your guidance / assistance.

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic351604.html you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the MRT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the MRT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the MRT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.
