Hi, I have a system that is infected with (most likely) a rootkit. It will not allow any scanners or most antimalware programs to run. So far I have successfully run DDS and gotten a log,rkill (iexplore version) which finds and kills 2-3 process' but they get recreated instantly and process names change each time. Renaming other scanner's exe's does not work.

What will not run or gets killed shortly after starting: combofix, mbam, superantispyware, hitman pro, catchme, mbr.

Safe mode produces the same results, no obvious bad files created recently, pulling the hard drive and scanning on another pc with mbam, eset and most of the others above does not find any infected files.

Can you provide any further insight? Much appreciation in advance. Gmer also shuts down after clicking on scan. DDS logs are attached

I know I'm not supposed to reply to my own thread to keep replies at 0 but its been awhile with 102 views but no replies. Is this a stumper? Or just the pro's havn't gotten to it? I hate giving up and just doing a fresh install, it just feels so...... cheap. One update also, mbam now when scanning the drive from another PC is finding a random named .exe file that gets recreated at boot. Someone else cleared the find so I'm running another to see what mbam thinks its infected with.

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help. Here at Bleeping Computer we get overwhelmed at times, and we are trying our best to keep up. Please note that your topic was not intentionally overlooked. Our mission is to help everyone in need, but sometimes it takes just a little longer to get to every request for help. No one is ignored here.

If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know. If not please perform the following steps below so we can have a look at the current condition of your machine.

If you have not done so, include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

Upon completing the steps below another staff member will review your topic an do their best to resolve your issues.

If you have already posted a DDS log, please do so again, as your situation may have changed.
Use the 'Add Reply' and add the new log to this thread.

Thanks and again sorry for the delay.

We need to see some information about what is happening in your machine. Please perform the following scan:
  • Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links. Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the DDS icon, allow it to run.
  • A small box will open, with an explaination about the tool. No input is needed, the scan is running.
  • Notepad will open with the results.
  • Follow the instructions that pop up for posting the results.
  • Close the program window, and delete the program from your desktop.
Please note: You may have to disable any script protection running if the scan fails to run. After downloading the tool, disconnect from the internet and disable all antivirus protection. Run the scan, enable your A/V and reconnect to the internet.

Information on A/V control HERE

We also need a new log from the GMER anti-rootkit scanner. Please first disable any CD emulation programs using the steps found in this topic:

Why we request you disable CD Emulation when receiving Malware Removal Advice


Then create another GMER log and post it as an attachment to the reply where you post your new DDS log. Instructions on how to properly create a GMER log can be found here:

How to create a GMER log


Thanks.

Situation and DDS logs are the same as before with the following additional info. Scans of the HDD on another pc have found 3 infected files in the windows\system32\drivers\ folder 2 of which were of the sirefef.b/g variety and another was called win32rootkit.agent.nsf. Files were deleted but the infection remains and will not allow gmer or any other antimalware scanner to operate. Thanks Again.

Edit: TDSS killer will run and always finds a windows driver file (varies) infected and changes as well as a constant file in the same directory vbmaf29c.sys that is always recreated. I have deleted it on reboot, from another pc, and dropped a dummy file with the same name in its place. None of which is effective.

Seems that I got it. I added a dummy folder with the same name as the vbmaf29c.sys file with the \\.\ prefix and marked it +s +h +r. this did not allow the virus to recreate its worker(?) file and interrupted its actions enough to run other malware software and clean the rootkits out. I'll post if the rest of my scans can't complete but at this point it looks to be under control. Props to Ninja Pendisk authors for showing me how to make a undeletable file with the \\.\ syntax. Now to replace all the Windows driver files that got deleted in the process of figuring it out. Best of luck to all with these devious virus's.

Definatly all set, after eliminating the one that was blocking malware apps from running there was still another rootkit causing a browser hijack but the rest was easy enough to fix once I could run a plethora of tools. Thanks again for the resources available here.
