I am about to rip my hair out. One of the servers I am using has been infected with a virus that I cannot get rid of. I am running Windows Server 2003. 2 of my drives have been infected with a virus, which AVG has picked up as being host.exe, copy.exe, and autorun.inf. AVG cannot remove them, manually deleting them via explorer and cmd prompt does not work, as well as attempting to do the same in safe mode. The files keep coming back upon refresh of the system. Clamwin shows the viruses as the following:

Autorun.inf- w32.perlovga-1
Copy.exe- trojan.small-4214
Host.exe- trojan.dropper-829

Stopzilla detects many issues including, kamsoft.exe (which I could not find in the system32 folder), WMIS trojan, Backdoor.IRCbotAMJF, among others.

I have already tried the following: Malware bytes, flash disinfector (Which apparently does not run on Windows Server 2003), Perlovga remover, among others.

I could not find which process is causing the issue as there are so many svchost.exe's that are legitimate. A few guys I work with could not find anything abnormal in the Hijackthis log, although I am not that familiar with how to use it.

Google searches have yielded many results, although nothing has worked as of yet.

Can anyone help? Please?

Can you post the logs from Malwarebytes?

When you ran the scan was it updated, and did you run a full scan?

It may need a deeper look:

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include the link to this topic in your new topic and a description of your computer issues and what you have done to resolve them.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.

Once you have created the new topic, please reply back here with a link to the new topic.

Unfortunately, I have tried to run the Gmer scan before and it did not run properly. It caused the system to crash on multiple attempts. As for the DDS scan, it could not run. I got an error saying that it could not run on my operating system. (Windows Server 2003)

Hello,

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic381312.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.

Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.
