User accounts for "\\HACKED"; is the name I chose for my pc due to being hacked.

"Administrator Burkard is that you"; is my log on as administrator.

This pc is 32bit so no GMER. What's next?

    • 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.

I was forced to run DDS & GMER in safe mode. When attemping to run in normal mode I was blocked from saving the logs. (The PC is not connected to the internet).
I am convinced that I have been hacked and this is why:
I entered (or was lured by a moderator on a chat site) into Indy Media Circle IRC with the proposition of becoming a Moderator. (Yes, very stupid of me indeed)
*IRC clients are another common way for a hacker to get into a computer or remotely control thousands of computers. If you have never participated in a IRC chat, your computer may have been hacked.*
My PC began acting "beyond strange" very soon after having entered the "IRC" realm of doom. I believe a hacker planted a repropagating program in my BCD, MBR, BOOT SECTOR, etc.. with backdoor/s.
I believe that the timeline of events, in retrospect, is extremely supportive of my assertion.
Please let me know what to do next.
Thank you very much for the help.
If these logs are incomplete in any way, my appologies.

Hello, my name is Elise and I'll assist you with this issue.

COMBOFIX
---------------
Please download ComboFix from one of these locations:
Bleepingcomputer
ForoSpyware
  • Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools. (Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive.)
  • Double click on Combofix.exe and follow the prompts.
  • As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.
  • Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.
**Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, or if you are running Vista, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.

Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:

Posted Image


Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.

When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Please include the C:\Combofix.txt in your next reply.

regards, Elise

I see no evidence of malware here. What problems do you have exactly at this point (as for IRC, depending on the network you're on, it really should be safe, I'm a long-time IRC user and never had any trouble with it).

Please rerun DDS and post me attach.txt (it will be minimized when the scan is done).

regards, Elise

I umderstand why you see no evidence of malware, and appreciate what you have shared with me about IRC(I found something online about hackers exploiting these sites). I just tried to run DDS on my compromised pc (in normal mode; connected to the internet), and attempted to send you the log several times; but each time I received an error message (server busy try again later). I got the same message when I tried sending via my other pc. Upon futher investigation I discovered that my IP protocols were altered (any other site was available except Bleeping Computer), so I reset them via microsoft fix it. Also, previous to this, I had been rebooting so frequently, I.E. reinstalling OS "et cetera", that I became tired of having to enter my password so on my last reinstall I opted to go without one. At that point the password screen came up with my user name (my previous password/s didn't work), and somehow a password protected "Other User" account mysteriously appeared all by itself (so I had to do another OS reinstall at that time and I am now using a password protected logon). I am currently locked out of certain files, (admistrator rights not sufficient, permissions are locked), and 100% CPU usage and system sluggishness are the norm.
Here is the DDS log (I ran DDS in Safe Mode).
Again, thank you for your help.
What is the next step?

In that case lets first have a look at your drive's MBR to see if it is infected.

Try this please. You will need a USB drive.

Download GETxPUD.exe to the desktop of your clean computer
  • Run GETxPUD.exe
  • A new folder will appear on the desktop.
  • Open the GETxPUD folder and click on the get&burn.bat
  • The program will download xpud_0.9.2.iso, and upon finished will open BurnCDCC ready to burn the image.
  • Click on Start and follow the prompts to burn the image to a CD.
  • Remove the USB & CD and insert it in the sick computer
  • Boot the Sick computer with the CD you just burned
  • The computer must be set to boot from the CD
  • Gently tap F12 and choose to boot from the CD
  • Follow the prompts
  • A Welcome to xPUD screen will appear
  • Press File
  • Expand mnt
  • sda1,2...usually corresponds to your HDD
  • sdb1 is likely your USB
  • Click on the folder that represents your USB drive (sdb1 ?)
  • Press Tool at the top
  • Choose Open Terminal
  • Type the following and press enter:

    dd if=/dev/sda of=mbr.bin bs=512 count=1

  • Press Enter
  • After it has finished a file will be located on your USB drive named mbr.bin
  • Remove the USB drive and insert it back in your working computer and navigate to mbr.bin, zip it up and attach it to your next reply.

This will allow me to have a look at the MasterBootRecord of your drive and see if it is infected.

regards, Elise

Elise,
I precisely followed your instructions and this is the result:
No log generated; error message instead:
Can't open "mbr.bin" Input/output error

Elise,
I found a file in C:\ labeled "mbr.bin", not sure if this is the file you need or not?
I tried to upload it here, but got an error message "You are not permitted to upload this type of file".
I was able to open it with notepad.
Here it is:

3ÀŽÐ¼ |ŽÀŽØ¾ |¿ ¹ üó¤PhËû¹ ½¾€~ | …ƒÅâñ͈V UÆFÆF ´A»ªUÍ]rûUªu ÷Á tþFf`€~ t&fh

If this is not the mbr.bin log that should have been generated, or I do not have permission to paste this, my sincere appologies.
In addition, I noticed that this thread has been duplicated? I do not understand how this happened? I can think of nothing I have done that would have caused this.
Please let me know what is needed next. (Also, you have my permission to beat me severely for any violation/s :).)
Again, thank you so much for your help. :)

Why do you think this thread has been duplicated, it shows up only once: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/index.php?app=core&module=search&do=user_activity&mid=742105

That is the file I need, but please read the instructions, you need to zip it and attach it, I cannot use it like this.

regards, Elise

That is clean. Please post me DDS's attach.txt file (it is not the one you posted earlier, you need to post the file that is minimized after the DDS scan is finished).

regards, Elise

I ran xPUD in normal mode this time. Perhaps it will show a different result.
