Hi m0le,

My girlfriend's netbook gave an error on startup:
RUNDLL Error loading c:docu~1\eve\locals~1\temp\wehvs.dll The specified module could not be found. Then, MSE realtime found and removed
Medfos.A in file:C:\Documents and Settings\Eve\Local Settings\temp\wehvs.dll and file:C:\DOCUME~1\Eve\LOCALS~1\temp\wehvs.dll. I ran a full system scan and it found and removed
Medfos.B in file:C:\Documents and Settings\Eve\Local Settings\temp\derkr.dll process:pid:3976, and the items
regkey:HKLM\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\RUN\\derkr
runkey:HKLM\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\RUN\\derkr

The netbook continues to give the same error at startup.

I am moderately tecno-literate up to a point, but beyond that point lies the registry and any real virus damage repair, so I need help with anything registry and virus damage repair.

Thank you very much for any assistance you can provide. I will also start a topic for my own laptop, which was also damaged, in a seperate incident, by different viruses, and is in much worse condition.

If you don't find attach.txt and ark.txt it is because I wasn't sure if I needed to create placeholders, just let me know and I will do so.

Thank you again,
Solaron

Hi,

Welcome to Bleeping Computer. My name is m0le and I will be helping you with your log.
  • Please subscribe to this topic, if you haven't already. Click the Watch This Topic button at the top on the right.

  • Please avoid installing/uninstalling or updating any programs and attempting any unsupervised fixes or scans. This can make helping you impossible.

  • Please reply to this post so I know you are there.
The forum is busy and we need to have replies as soon as possible. If I haven't had a reply after 3 days I will bump the topic and if you do not reply by the following day after that then I will close the topic.

----------------------------------------------

It's tempting to go in and blast the items that have been found but the malware does appear to be regenerating so we'd better calm down a bit :lol: and run a rootkit scanner

Please download aswMBR ( 511KB ) to your desktop.
  • Double click the aswMBR.exe icon to run it
  • Click the Scan button to start the scan
  • On completion of the scan, click the save log button, save it to your desktop and post it in your next reply.

I agree m0le, if I had stayed calm, I migh have less damage to my own laptop, but back to this one, my girlfriends netbook:

aswMBR
definitions updated
Quick Scan
Log attached
Note: the line of text in the log at 19:32:27 was printed in yellow by aswMBR.

Solaron

That's a Microsoft file but aswMBR might flag it as suspicious because it's got malware capability - being a malware remover might have something to do with that.


Medfos doesn't look to be a nasty infection and no other rootkit activity exists so we will try and remove the problems. We'll start by finding all the instances of medfos A and B

Please download SystemLook from one of the links below and save it to your Desktop.
Download Mirror #1
Download Mirror #2

  • Double-click SystemLook.exe to run it.
  • Copy the content of the following codebox into the main textfield:
    :filefind
    wehvs
    derkr
    :regfile
    wehvs
    derkr
    
  • Click the Look button to start the scan.
  • When finished, a notepad window will open with the results of the scan. Please post this log in your next reply.
Note: The log can also be found on your Desktop entitled SystemLook.txt

It looks like this is just a trace of malware remaining.

We need to execute an OTM script
  • Please download OTM by OldTimer and save it to your desktop.
  • Double click the Posted Image icon on your desktop.
  • Paste the following code under the Posted Image area.
    :Reg
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
    "wehvs"=-
    
  • Push the large Posted Image button.
  • OTM may ask to reboot the machine. Please do so if asked.
  • Copy/Paste the contents under the Posted Image line here in your next reply.
  • If you are unable to copy/paste from this window (as will be the case if the machine was rebooted), open Notepad (Start->All Programs->Accessories->Notepad), click File->Open, in the File Name box enter *.log and press the Enter key, navigate to the C:\_OTM\MovedFiles folder, and open the newest .log file present, and copy/paste the contents of that document back here in your next post.
Post the OTM log.

This should stop the error message


Now download and run MBAM


Please download Posted Image Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application or, if you are using Vista, right-click and select Run As Administrator on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
  • MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan. If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
    If MBAM won't update then download and update MBAM on a clean computer then save the rules.ref folder to a memory stick. This file is found here: 'C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware' then transfer it across to the infected computer.
  • On the Scanner tab:
    • Make sure the "Perform Full Scan" option is selected.
    • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
  • Back at the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes, they may alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please permit the program to allow the changes.


Finally rerun DDS and post a fresh log.

We look about done here. Just a quick sweep with ESET - I say quick but they can take time on machines with a lot on them.

I'd like us to scan your machine with ESET OnlineScan
  • Hold down Control and click on the following link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
    ESET OnlineScan
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
    • Click on Posted Image to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
    • Double click on the Posted Image icon on your desktop.
  • Check Posted Image
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Under scan settings, check Posted Image and check Remove found threats
  • Click Advanced settings and select the following:
    • Scan potentially unwanted applications
    • Scan for potentially unsafe applications
    • Enable Anti-Stealth technology
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  • Copy and paste the resulting log in your next reply
If no log is generated that means nothing was found. Please let me know if this happens.

If you think a log should have been generated then go to C:\Program Files\ESET\ESET Online Scanner\log.txt to find it.

ESET found no threats on the netbook and it is functioning properly. I'm glad to have some good news!

I have not logged on to any secure websites as a precaution. Could something still be hiding itself, waiting to steal my log on info?

Rootkits and things in your kernels and boot partitions sound sneaky. (As you can tell, an amateur has started to read about malware and barely understands anything yet.)

Not really. The scans we have carried out cover the areas of the machine where those malware types hide.

I take it that the PC is now functioning perfectly?

Yes! Its functioning perfectly!

Mole, you are awesome! Thank you for helping both me and my girlfriend. I will definitely show my appreciation to UNITE.

Is there anything else I should do?

You're very welcome, Solaron.

You just need to follow the final instructions

You're clean. Good stuff! :thumbup2:

Let's do some clearing up

If you used DeFogger now is the time to enable your CD emulation software again.

We Need to Clean Up our Mess
Download and Run OTC

We will now remove the tools we used during this fix using OTC.

  • Download OTC by OldTimer and save it to your desktop.
  • Double click Posted Image icon to start the program. If you are using Vista, please right-click and choose run as administrator
  • Then Click the big Posted Image button.
  • You will get a prompt saying "Being Cleanup Process". Please select Yes.
  • Restart your computer when prompted.
If you still have any tools or logs leftover on your computer you can go ahead and delete those off of your computer now.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here's some advice on how you can keep your PC clean


Use and update your AntiVirus Software

You must have a good antivirus. There are plenty to choose from but I personally recommend the free options of Avast and Avira Antivir - though if you choose Avira you should make sure that you uncheck the box offering to install the Ask toolbar. If you want to purchase a security program then I recommend any of the following: AVG, Norton, McAfee, Kaspersky and ESET Nod32.

It is imperative that you update your Antivirus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your antivirus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out. If you use a commercial antivirus program you must make sure you keep renewing your subscription. Otherwise, once your subscription runs out, you may not be able to update the programs virus definitions.


Make sure your applications have all of their updates

Use this next program to check for updates for programs already on your system. Download Security Check by screen317 from here or here.

  • Save it to your Desktop.
  • Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
  • A Notepad document should open automatically, make sure that updates on any that are flagged are carried out as soon as possible

It is also possible for other programs on your computer to have security vulnerability that can allow malware to infect you. Therefore, it is also a good idea to check for the latest versions of commonly installed applications that are regularly patched to fix vulnerabilities. You can check these by visiting Secunia Software Inspector and Calendar of Updates.


Install an AntiSpyware Program

A highly recommended AntiSpyware program is SuperAntiSpyware. You can download the free Home Version. or the Pro version for a 15 day trial period.

Installing this or another recommended program will provide spyware & hijacker protection on your computer alongside your virus protection. You should scan your computer with an AntiSpyware program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software.


Finally, here's a treasure trove of antivirus, antimalware and antispyware resources


That's it, happy surfing!

Cheers.

Everything is going great right now. I have run OTC and still have a few things to delete. I have one question:

1) I found two ark.txt on my desktop. I didn't think it was possible to have two files with the same name and location. They both contain:

Running: gmer.exe; Driver: C:\DOCUME~1\Eve\LOCALS~1\Temp\pgriqpog.sys


---- Kernel code sections - GMER 1.0.15 ----

? System32\Drivers\hiber_WMILIB.SYS The system cannot find the path specified. !
? C:\DOCUME~1\Eve\LOCALS~1\Temp\mbr.sys The system cannot find the file specified. !

...
and:


---- Registry - GMER 1.0.15 ----

Reg HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SystemRestore@DisableSR \t 1

...
They look identical to me but with "Rootkit scan 2012-03-31 17:56:26" in one and "Rootkit scan 2012-03-31 17:56:45" in the other.

I guess my question is, how can they have the same name, and do the contents look normal?

The contents are normal and are text files from the rootkit scanner Gmer. They show nothing untoward.

Two files cannot be identically named in the same location so you'll find that one or both are actually located elsewhere but show on the desktop for ease of use in Gmer's case. Check Properties by right clicking the file and see.

I found the difference between the two idetincal looking ark files. Properties idetifies them both as Text Documents, but my girlfriend's OS hides the actual file extensions.

It may be that in the past I told my girlfried's Windwos to open .log files with Notepad by default, and now Windows just calls them all "Text Document" regardless of the file extension. I don't specifically remember doing that on her netbook, but it's the kind of thing I've done in years past.

I discovered the difference in the file extensions quite by accident because I trusted that a Text Document is a Text Document and didn't deliberately go looking for the hidden file extensions.
