Hi,
 
I started up my desktop today, to be notified by ESET NOD32 Antivirus 8 (legitimate paid version) that I have a trojan.

Doing a smart scan did not remove it.
 
I also found this topic on the matter on this very forum: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/579945/infected-with-a-variant-of-msilinjectoryt-trojan/
It seems that particular user also only recently have gotten this malware.
The start post's date is June 19th 2015.
 
Also, check ESET Virus Radar: http://www.virusradar.com/en/MSIL_Injector.YT/chart/history
It's trending worldwide!
Is this normal behaviour, that trend?
 
edit1: Here another report in Swedish: http://www.sweclockers.com/forum/trad/1374364-msil-injector-yt-trojan
Note the date of the start post June 20th 2015.
Wtf is going on, widespread infection?!
 
Also ran the latest updated Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Home.
It did not detect anything.
 
For the time being the desktop I removed the ethernet cable of said desktop.
 
 
Kind regards,
Asgaro
 

 
But I will try Kaspersky TDSSKiller and others later today. Edit: will first try http://kb.eset.com/esetkb/index?page=content&id=SOLN2505
 
 
 
edit3: I now enabled the free trail for the Premium version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. (Had to connect very shortly to the internet to enable it.)
Since the Premium version provides real-time protection, I hope the software will show some popups eventually about this malware.
Update: no popups from Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium so far.
 
 
edit4: Very bad showing from ESET NOD32!
Even though on start-up there are 3 popups telling me there is a trojan in memory, the actual user interface of ESET doesn't show any issues!
It says "Maximum protection" with a green "OK sign".
Only when I go in the log files from within the user interface, I can see red lines stating the malware.
 
 
edit5: The Swedish article states the HOSTS file could be modified by the trojan.
However, I checked mine at %SystemRoot%\System32\drivers\etc\hosts and there are no modifications.
 
 
edit6: This Russian NOD32 support forum also talks about the trojan: http://forum.esetnod32.ru/forum6/topic12104/

An Injector Trojan is a serious issue.. To remove it properly, repost this info with the log from here in a new topic. Do last 2 steps.

Please follow this Preparation Guide and post in a new topic.
Let me know if all went well.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

Good they will find it.

Now that your log is properly posted, 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 Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it 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 Malware Removal 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 Malware Removal Team members are very 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 Malware Removal 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 MRL Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.
The current wait time is 1 - 3 days and ALL logs are answered.
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.
