Hi all,

I really hope you can help me here. I want to check if the root kit nasty I discovered last week is really off my machine. I have some doubts as i still see some odd behaviour occasionally.

First, let me give you some history.

My machine is about 4 years old and ran XP SP3. In the summer my HD fried and I had to get a new one. On this new HD I asked the engineers to partition it so I could have basically my old computer running XP on one partition and a 'new' computer running Win7 on a different partition. They put in a boot choice screen on starting up so I can choose the OS. This I did as things like the webcam and some other stuff would not run on 7 and I liked my old XP machine! When I am using 7 that partition is labelled C. When I am using XP that is labelled C.

So, I saw some strage activity happening when in Win7. Browser (FF) started to open a new windo by itself - usually to Google or to Yahoo but then to a fake malware scanning site. I had installed WSE on the XP side and had Avira Free on 7. I ran Avira and nothing showed. So I ran windows security essentials from the XP partition and it's discovered and dealt with the following items.

Results of Windows Security Essentials Scans:

1st scan:

These 3 Instances of Virus:Win32/Alureon.H All 'Disinfected'
file:G:\Windows\System32\drivers\nsiproxy.sys
file:G:\System Volume Information\_restore{3A579F61-82CF-4117-919A-DB7B394CD5BC}\RP509\A0109950.sys
file:G:\Windows\winsxs\x86_microsoft-windows-usermodensi_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_none_7238790328c77613\nsiproxy.sys

Trojan:Alureon.M found in these 3 files and was 'Removed'
file:G:\Windows\Temp\A79317.sys
file:G:\Windows\Temp\E7a3kU.sys
file:G:\Windows\Temp\Y5c5s.sys

Exploit:Java/CVE-2009-387.IG Removed


Second scan a few days later:

These 4 were all 'Removed'

TrojanDownloader:Java/OpenConnection.CX
Exploit:java/CVE-2008-5353.BS
Exploit:java/CVE-2008-5353.AX
Exploit:java/CVE-2008-3867.CL

A scan last night came up clean. But I still see the occasional browser window opening.

Fearing that my router had been dns compromised I switched the dns to use Google Public DNS on my computer and on the router. Don't know if this will help at all.

I have this bad feeling that there is still something lurking around. Can someone here help me find out & deal with it once & for all please?

Hello the most positive way to be certain is to repost this question with 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.

Hello,

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic353831.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.

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:
