    So I will try to help in advance. My main question is If I do have the Virut virus
 do I have to format all of my drives ? or just my Operating System ? My OS is on a
OCZ 128 SSD and I also have one 2TG and two 1TG drives all of which have important
information on them. Here is a copy ( http://speccy.piriform.com/results/
FinKY34kHaKNmj4mzZLDcp3 ). I have used rKill in Safe mode and also used Combofix which
 gave me the "Virut" error message. Here is also the Bluescreen download info as well.

    • 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 tried to post a zip file but was unable. Here are the results (copy & paste). My "H" harddrive is failing and I am in the process of

transfering everything and then I will replace it with another harddrive.

I'm afraid I have very bad news.

Your system is infected with a nasty variant of Virut, a dangerous polymorphic file infector with IRCBot functionality which infects .exe, .scr files, and opens a back door that compromises your computer. Using this backdoor, a remote attacker can access and instruct the infected computer to download and execute more malicious files.

-- Note: As with most malware infections, the threat name may be different depending on the anti-virus or anti-malware program which detected it. Each security vendor uses their own naming conventions to identify various types of malware.With this particular infection, the safest solution and only sure way to remove it effectively is to reformat and reinstall the OS.

Why? According to this Norman White Paper Assessment of W32/Virut, some variants can infect the HOSTS file and block access to security related web sites. Other variants of virut can even penetrate and infect .exe files within compressed files (.zip, .cab, rar). The Virux and Win32/Virut.17408 variants are an even more complex file infectors which can embed an iframe into the body of web-related files and infect script files (.php, .asp, .htm, .html, .xml). When Virut creates infected files, it also creates non-functional files that are corrupted beyond repair and in some instances can disable Windows File Protection. In many cases the infected files cannot be disinfected properly by your anti-virus. When disinfection is attempted, the files become corrupted and the system may become irreparable. The longer virut remains on a computer, the more critical system files will become infected and corrupt so the degree of damage can vary.

The virus disables Windows File Protection by injecting code into the "winlogon.exe" process that patches system code in memory.

CA Virus detail of W32/Virut

The virus has a number of bugs in its code, and as a result it may misinfect a proportion of executable files....some W32/Virut.h infections are corrupted beyond repair.

McAfee Risk Assessment and Overview of W32/Virut

There are bugs in the viral code. When the virus produces infected files, it also creates non-functional files that also contain the virus...Due to the damaged caused to files by virut it's possible to find repaired but corrupted files. They became corrupted by the incorrect writing of the viral code during the process of infection. undetected, corrupted files (possibly still containing part of the viral code) can also be found. this is caused by incorrectly written and non-function viral code present in these files.

AVG Overview of W32/Virut

Virut is commonly spread via a flash drive (usb, pen, thumb, jump) infection using RUNDLL32.EXE and other malicious files. It is often contracted by visiting remote, crack and keygen sites. These type of sites are infested with a smörgåsbord of malware and a major source of system infection.

...warez and crack web pages are being used by cybercriminals as download sites for malware related to VIRUT and VIRUX. Searches for serial numbers, cracks, and even antivirus products like Trend Micro yield malcodes that come in the form of executables or self-extracting files...quick links in these sites also lead to malicious files. Ads and banners are also infection vectors...

Keygen and Crack Sites Distribute VIRUX and FakeAV

However, the CA Security Advisor Research Blog have found MySpace user pages carrying the malicious Virut URL. Either way you can end up with a computer system so badly damaged that recovery is not possible and it cannot be repaired. When that happens there is nothing you can do besides reformatting and reinstalling the OS.

Since virut is not effectively disinfectable, your best option is to perform a full reformat as there is no guarantee this infection can be completely removed. In most instances it may have caused so much damage to your system files that it cannot be completely cleaned or repaired. In many cases the infected files (which could number in the thousands) cannot be deleted and anti-malware scanners cannot disinfect them properly. Security vendors that claim to be able to remove file infectors cannot guarantee that all traces of it will be removed as they may not find all the remnants. If something goes awry during the malware removal process there is always a risk the computer may become unstable or unbootable and you could loose access to all your data.

Further, your machine has likely been compromised by the backdoor Trojan and there is no way to be sure the computer can ever be trusted again. It is dangerous and incorrect to assume the computer is secure even if your anti-virus reports that the malware appears to have been removed.

Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of malware, the best course of action is to reformat and reinstall the OS. Reinstalling Windows without first wiping the entire hard drive with a repartition and/or format will not remove the infection. The reinstall will only overwrite the Windows files. Any malware on the system will still be there afterwards. Please read:

Whenever a system has been compromised by a backdoor payload, it is impossible to know if or how much the backdoor has been used to affect your system...There are only a few ways to return a compromised system to a confident security configuration. These include:
Reimaging the system
Restoring the entire system using a full system backup from before the backdoor infection
Reformatting and reinstalling the system

The only way to clean a compromised system is to flatten and rebuild. Thats right. If you have a system that has been completely compromised, the only thing you can do is to flatten the system (reformat the system disk) and rebuild it from scratch (reinstall Windows and your applications).   "  Only reformat the system disk ? or do I also have to format the addition hdd I have installed as well ? Where do I draw the line ? I have a disk that has the "Ultimate Boot" which I have used "HDD/Disk Wiping" tools before on Xp machines. Do you suggest I use any of these programs such as "Darik's Boot and Nuke" to wipe clean of the hdds ? Any and all Help is more than welcome.

 Since all of my hdds are WD I can download the "Acronis True Image WD Edition" and use that. (http://wdc.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1211/p/85,206/c/0/session/L3RpbWUvMTM4MzgzNTAyOC9zaWQvRGszQ0NMRWw%3D). Also is there a chance that it can save itself directly onto the Mobo somehow ?



My question is where is this virus stored ? I do have some files that need to be kept. I just removed the bad 1TB hdd last night and replaced it with two 2TB hdds but if the infection is still there do I need to format  all of my WD hdds (thats 4 of them) plus reformat the ssd and re-install the OS again ? I have a few custom video files that I have for clients is it possible for the virus to hide inside of the video as well ? Here is a snap shot using Speccy (http://speccy.piriform.com/results/yVn7PQdB6b7gg0AYYPi0NqS).

 Can the Virut hide in the memory of the gpu as well ?

Virut may be within several file types, as you can se at the top of my last post.
It spreads through usb devices, so the only way to be 100% sure is backing up important files to CD/DVD (excluding the "critical" file types) and wiping the place.

Depending on the type of your hard drives, your freshly installed system will become reinfected in the moment you attach one of them.

You cannot say where the virus is stored´- it doesn´t have its own, locatable files as other viruses. It injects its malicious code into other files and this is what it makes almost impossible to remove by guarantee.

video files, sound files and other user data like this may be backed up and restored to the reinstalled system, but don´t backup any:

.exe, .scr, .zip, .cab, rar, .php, .asp, .htm, .html, .xml or other script files.

I guess I should be asking if just the windows format is enough ? or should I go with an after market wiping tool from "Ultimate Boot" ?

These wiping tools are only neccessary if a fornesic restore of any data on this drive shall be impossible.

A normal format run will fit - do NOT select "quick format"!

Just to let you know I am still here. I ended up using a Windows home 7 64bit disk to do two slow formats. Then went ahead and used ("copywipe"1.14) 5 passes. Took most of the night just on the OCZ SSD 128GB which my OS is on and will slowly start to add my four WD 2TB drives too one at a time. They just have video on them nothing else.

Right now my main concern is random Blue Screen of Death running on Windows 7 64bit. Which has plagued me from the start.Could be in either MIE-10 or Firefox 25 both seem to be the latest editions. Could also be just idling or doing some minor video editing.
