Pretty sure I'm infected...

Hey all, hope you guys can help me here. Got a winXP machine running for ever and I don't have the software to format and reinstall.

I am pretty sure I'm infected... but I cannot, for the life of me, find by what!

When I do a google search, I get randomly redirected to Film Annex, Canada411, SignalSearch (CheapStuff) or 2-3 other useless advertising website. The funny thing though is that the URL is the one I was trying to visit so just hitting refresh does it. I had Spybot on my system, I ran it and it came back with nothing. I tried downloading, installing and running Malware Byte, Comodo antivirus and Trendmicro House call. They all download and install right but if I try running them, they hang and just disappear (no trace in the Windows task Manager).

Another thing that I think is related, I get this weird process in my windows task manager 123892590:2441911800.exe it takes only 460 K but I've worked with WTM quite a bit before and I've never seen that application.

That might be a little short as a description but that is all I can see from the top of my head. I'll be more than happy to give more details if you have questions.

Thanks in advance

Lotharr

Hello and welcome.

Are you on a router? Are other machines on it,if so are they redirecting?

Do you use Firefox?

Please download MiniToolBox, save it to your desktop and run it.

Checkmark the following checkboxes:
  • Flush DNS
  • Report IE Proxy Settings
  • Reset IE Proxy Settings
  • Report FF Proxy Settings
  • Reset FF Proxy Settings
  • List content of Hosts
  • List IP configuration
  • List Winsock Entries
  • List last 10 Event Viewer log
  • List Installed Programs
  • List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
  • List Minidump Files
Click Go and post the result (Result.txt). A copy of Result.txt will be saved in the same directory the tool is run.

Note: When using "Reset FF Proxy Settings" option Firefox should be closed.



Please download the TDSS Rootkit Removing Tool (TDSSKiller.exe) and save it to your Desktop. <-Important!!!
Be sure to download TDSSKiller.exe (v2.5.6.0) from Kaspersky's website and not TDSSKiller.zip which appears to be an older version 2.3.2.2 of the tool.
  • Double-click on TDSSKiller.exe to run the tool for known TDSS variants.
    Vista/Windows 7 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
  • If TDSSKiller does not run, try renaming it.
  • To do this, right-click on TDSSKiller.exe, select Rename and give it a random name with the .com file extension (i.e. 123abc.com). If you do not see the file extension, please refer to How to change the file extension.
  • Click the Start Scan button.
  • Do not use the computer during the scan
  • If the scan completes with nothing found, click Close to exit.
  • If malicious objects are found, they will show in the Scan results - Select action for found objects and offer three options.
  • Ensure Cure (default) is selected, then click Continue > Reboot now to finish the cleaning process.
  • A log file named TDSSKiller_version_date_time_log.txt (i.e. TDSSKiller.2.4.0.0_27.07.2010_09.o7.26_log.txt) will be created and saved to the root directory (usually Local Disk C:).
  • Copy and paste the contents of that file in your next reply.


If TDSSKiller does not run, try renaming it. To do this, right-click on TDSSKiller.exe, select Rename and give it a random name with the .com file extension (i.e. 123abc.com). If you do not see the file extension, please refer to these[/color] instructions. In some cases it may be necessary to redownload TDSSKiller and randomly rename it before downloading and saving to the computer.



Now try to run MBAM (MalwareBytes) like this:

Open MBAM in normal/regular mode and click Update tab, select Check for Updates,when done
click Scanner tab,select Quick scan and scan (normal mode).
After scan click Remove Selected, [color="#8B0000"]Post new scan log
and Reboot into normal mode.

I'm getting a little confused here, do I follow boopme's instructions and post my reports in the present thread or do I follow Broni's instruction and start a new post???

Boopme, I'm on a router but that is the only machine connected to it (I should check if my laptop is redirecting).
I'll probably run the apps tomorrow and post the reports here.

Thanks for the quick answer!

Hi Boopme,

I got MiniToolBox, ran it and it gave me 2 errors (had them typed yesterday, but my system rebooted and I lost the post, I will re post it tonight, I figure that if I give you the error message and code that might help you) it also hangs in the process of resolving the IP or something. (sorry for the lack of details I'm at the office at the moment. Just posting to let you know that I'm working on it)

However it creates a report but I think it must be incomplete. I'll post it all tonight around 8pm.

Take it easy!
Lotharr

Ok, so according to Broni, I should stop wasting our collective time right now and get in the other section (not in so many words, but his "...is a serious infection" speaks chapters to me.) :o)

Boopme, to finish our business, MiniToolBox spits out 2 errors in 3 screens

First error, one time
netsh.exe - Entry Point Not Found
The procedure entry point MigrateWinsockConfiguration could not be located in the dynamic link library MSWSOCK.dll

and then second error, twice
nslookup.exe - Ordinal Not Found
The ordinal 1108 could not be located in the dynamic link library WSOCK32.sll

Then it seems like it hangs (it's been Getting IpConfig for the last half hour...)

and here is the report that I get.

The rootkit "has low level disk access that allows it to create new volumes that are totally hidden from the victim's operating system and anti-virus," wrote Giuseppe Bonfa, the InfoSec researcher who deconstructed ZeroAccess.

The hidden volume tactic is "unique," and ZeroAccess is currently the only one that is advanced enough to do this, according to Koziol.

Hello,

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic421345.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.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.

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

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