Yesterday, I walked out of the room, and when I returned my main laptop computer was essentially under siege from the System Restore malware. I did a hard shut down before it could do too much, switched to my netbook and got enough information to restart my main computer in safe mode, install and run Malwarebytes (which I've run several times at this point) and also ran a MS Forefront (my primary A/V software) fullscan after having used rkill.exe to kill any hostile processes. I seem to have largely removed the System Restore infection, and unhide has restored my start menu data, as far as I can tell.

However, I still receive Google redirects in IE, Firefox (primary browser) and Opera.

The TDSS rootkit tool hasn't shown anything, and MBR.exe won't work because I am running a 64-bit OS. I have checked the hosts file, and it's empty of any entries whatsoever. None of the browser or OS settings show any proxy servers.

MBM has removed files relating to a Trojan.FakeAlert infection:
Registry Values Infected:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\oaSRmPRWaGOlTAC.exe (Trojan.FakeAlert) -> Value: oaSRmPRWaGOlTAC.exe -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

Registry Data Items Infected:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Start_ShowMyComputer (PUM.Hijack.StartMenu) -> Bad: (0) Good: (1) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Start_ShowSearch (PUM.Hijack.StartMenu) -> Bad: (0) Good: (1) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

Folders Infected:
(No malicious items detected)

Files Infected:
c:\programdata\oasrmprwagoltac.exe (Trojan.FakeAlert) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.
c:\programdata\g6kcukvzur8r3l.exe (Trojan.FakeAlert) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

MS Forefront Security removed a fairly large number of Java/Blacole, Java/Rowindal and Java/CVE-XXXX-XXXX variants, and Spybot-Search and Destroy found one program but doesn't seem to have logged exactly what it found, and it seemed possible minor.

I thought that out of date Java might have been an issue, especially since the updater program is pretty terrible and leaves old versions lying around. I have removed Java from both my laptop and my netbook. Nonetheless, I think my netbook may have been hit as well (about 24 hours after my main laptop, though the fake anti-malware had a different name - something "Oneclick" but I shut down the computer ASAP), though I am running scans now in safe mode with MBM to check. The primary contact between the two computers has been a flashdrive, and they are both on the same Homegroup.

My laptop is a Lenovo T60 w/Core 2 T7200 (64-bit) running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, 3GB RAM. MS Forefront Security is my main realtime A/V protection, and Windows Firewall is on, with rules set to allow outgoing unknown connections, but block unknown incoming connections. After eliminating the infection as far as possible, I updated Windows with the latest updates from Tuesday 11/8. I did this on my netbook also, but it seems like that is not a sufficient guard against infection.

Here is my DDS log (no GMER - running 64bit):

I would like to add that periodically Internet Explorer opens to random sites, similar to the ones redirected to. Internet Explorer is not the default browser. This happens fairly infrequently.

To the rest of the internet: I believe I have resolved the problem.

In addition to the steps I outlined above, I also ran combofix (yeah yeah, in spite of the advice against doing anything till I received help, but that seems to be a boilerplate step for this issue). It didn't appear to resolve anything. Tried updating my A/V software (both MWB and MS Forefront) and rerunning scans, nothing.

Finally I burned (on the infected computer, but it's my only computer with a burner) Kaspersky's Rescue Disk (link for those of us who are now suspicious of search results), and booted to that. It found a rootkit almost instantly, though I let it scan the entire computer. I had "Rootkit.Boot.SST.b"

Note that I'd used TDDS Kill multiple times with various file names, and it hadn't succeeded. I recommend the boot disk because it allows it to boot clean with no chance for the rootkits to start.

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer!

I am HelpBot: an automated program designed to help the Bleeping Computer Staff better assist you! This message contains very important information, so please read through all of it before doing anything.

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.

To help Bleeping Computer better assist you please perform the following steps:


Posted Image In order to continue receiving help at BleepingComputer.com, YOU MUST tell me if you still need help or if your issue has already been resolved on your own or through another resource! To tell me this, please click on the following link and follow the instructions there.

CLICK THIS LINK >>> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/logreply/427089 <<< CLICK THIS LINK

If you no longer need help, then all you needed to do was the previous instructions of telling me so. You can skip the rest of this post. If you do need help please continue with Step 2 below.


Posted Image If you still need help, I would like you to post a Reply to this topic (click the "Add Reply" button in the lower right hand of this page). In that reply, please include the following information:

  • If you have not done so already, include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.
  • A new DDS and GMER log. For your convenience, you will find the instructions for generating these logs repeated at the bottom of this post.
    • Please do this even if you have previously posted logs for us.
    • If you were unable to produce the logs originally please try once more.
    • If you are unable to create a log please provide detailed information about your installed Windows Operating System including the Version, Edition and if it is a 32bit or a 64bit system.
    • If you are unsure about any of these characteristics just post what you can and we will guide you.
  • Please tell us if you have your original Windows CD/DVD available.
  • Upon completing the above steps and posting a reply, another staff member will review your topic and do their best to resolve your issues.

Thank you for your patience, and again sorry for the delay.


We need to see some information about what is happening in your machine. Please perform the following scan again:

  • Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links if you no longer have it available. Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the DDS icon, allow it to run.
  • A small box will open, with an explanation 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 note that if you are running a 64-bit version of Windows you will not be able to run GMER and you may skip this step.

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

As I am just a silly little program running on the BleepingComputer.com servers, please do not send me private messages as I do not know how to read and reply to them! Thanks!

You have stated that you no longer need help with this issue, therefore I am closing this topic. If that is not the case and you need or wish to continue with this topic, please send any Moderator a Personal Message (PM) that you would like this topic re-opened.
