Posted 12 March 2007 - 10:17 PM

I became infected with the Win32.pipeline worm back in january, courtesy of a link sent to me on AIM. The worm downloaded several trojans, many which I know I got rid of, however I'm not sure if I ever got rid of the one named Shuckbot (or something like that). I thought my computer was clear, but then yesterday, the weekly Trend Micro PC-Cillin scan detected a "generic" trojan, which I think I quarantined/deleted. However, I know that my computer is probably still infected because the windows firewall settings say that they cannot be changed because they are being controlled by Group Policy settings, which I did not set and cannot change. Also, whenever I manually direct for trend micro to scan my computer, nothing happens--it says that it's scanning, however it will say that for hours and no progress will be made. Below is my logfile from HijackThis, which I just downloaded as a last ditch effort since I have scanned my computer with every virus/spyware scanner I've heard of and have not been able to get to the bottom of this. Please help me! Thank you.

also, I forgot to mention that a file appeared on my computer called 0.log when I first got the worm. The longer it remains on my computer, the more memory it will gather. Whenever I run CCleaner, it always deletes the 0.log file, but it never leaves the machine (it just starts to gain memory all over again). Please, please help me with this--I'm really afraid that my computer is going to become a zombie.

Hi Westernisbest,

Welcome to Bleeping Computer. :thumbsup:

Sorry for the delay, this forum is swamped right now.

I understand your concern, you have had a nasty infection and it's not clear whether it's gone now.

Since this worm is an SDBot variant it can allow a remote user to control your computer. I advise you to immediately change all your online passwords -- e-mail, banking, credit cards, student records, forums, everything -- from a clean computer. Not this one! Also please check your bank and credit card records for any unauthorized activity. Finally, keep this computer offline as much as possible until we are sure it is clean.

Among the scans you did, did you run across and use Lavasoft's Pipeline Removal Tool?

If not, please do the following:

Go here to download the tool. Select your Desktop as the destination.

Double Click the file icon to run it. Read the license agreement and click I agree. A new screen will appear, click Scan. The tool will inform you if it finds any files and will quarantine them.

As far as I can tell, the tool makes no logfile of its activity. You will have to write down the information on the screen before you close the program. Please do this, I would like to see it.

I would also like you to run an online scan.

First go to the Kaspersky online scanner. Accept the terms, let it install an ActiveX program (since you have XP SP2 this is blocked by default, you must allow it), then accept the terms again, let it download the files (about 8 MB total). Click Next, and select "My Computer" as the scan area. Kaspersky takes a long time but it is very thorough. When it is finished, save the report as a text file (easier to work with than an HTML file) to your desktop.

Finally, run a fresh HijackThis scan and save the log. Post it, along with the Kaspersky report and your notes on the results of the Pipeline Remover, to a reply here.

Good luck,

Dave

Also, is there a way that I would know if any of my passwords had been stolen/copied during the time the worm was on my machine?


Thank you so, so, so much!

Hi again,

Also, is there a way that I would know if any of my passwords had been stolen/copied during the time the worm was on my machine?



As far as I know the only way you would know is by finding (for example) that there are unauthorized charges on your credit card, that someone else has been using your e-mail account, or whatever -- depending on the password in question. This is why you should change all of those passwords and check all your accounts and monitor them.

So far, the scans show that you are clean. Before I give you the all clear I would like to run a few more, especially since a rootkit was part of this infection; also there is some cleanup to do with HijackThis. However, before we go on with that I would like to know about this 0.log file that CCleaner keeps removing.

Every Windows XP computer (as far as I can tell) has a 0.log file located in the C:\Windows folder. It is always zero bytes, at least on the machines I have checked. Is this the file you are referring to? Whether it is or not -- and there may be other 0.log files on your machine in addition to this normal one-- Please look at your last CCleaner log and find the full file path (e.g. C:\Windows\0.log.) to the file you are concerned about. Make a note of it.

I would like you to attach that file to your next reply here, so I can download it and take a look at it. The "file attachments" box down below the "Post Options" works pretty much like an e-mail attachment box. If you need detailed instructions just ask.

Now, let's go ahead and do a little cleanup.

Open HijackThis and run a scan. Place a check mark next to the following lines:

O23 - Service: DCOM Server Process Admin - Unknown owner - c:\recycler\comser.exe (file missing)
O23 - Service: Primary Disk Manager (pdman) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\system32\pman32.exe (file missing)


Make sure all other windows on your Deskto are closed, and no other programs are listed in your taskbar. Then click fix checked. Confirm the fix and close HijackThis.

Next, reboot into Safe Mode:
  • Restart your computer.
  • When the machine first starts again it will generally list some equipment that is installed in your machine, amount of memory, hard drives installed etc. At this point you should gently tap the F8 key repeatedly until you are presented with a menu.
  • When you have the menu on the screen. Use the arrow keys to move to the line that says Safe Mode.
  • Then press <Enter> on your keyboard to boot into Safe Mode.
Now, Unhide files and folders:

1. Close all programs so that you are at your desktop.
2. Click Start, My Computer.
3. Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
4. After the new window appears select the View tab.
5. Under the Hidden files and folders section select the radio button labeled Show hidden files and folders.
6. Remove the checkmark from the checkbox labeled Hide file extensions for known file types.
7. Remove the checkmark from the checkbox labeled Hide protected operating system files.
8. Press the Apply button and then the OK button and close out My Computer.
9. Now your computer is configured to show all hidden files.
Now, using Explorer, navigate to C:\Windows\system32 and search for the file pman32.exe. If you find it, delete it. Do not be concerned if you cannot find it, but let me know either way.

Now reboot the computer, it will boot into Normal Mode automatically.

Run a frsh HijackThis scan. Post that log to a reply here, along with your observations and any problems you may have encountered. And, of course, the location of that 0.log file, which you should attach.

Good luck,

Dave

The full file path of the 0.log file is the one that you mentioned: C:\Windows\0.log. I attached the CCleaner log anyway.

I did not find the pman32 file when I was in safe mode, however I see that it's still in the log, so I will try and remove it again with Hijack This. (In safe mode, should I have attempted to remove it under the Administrator login name? because that's what I did.)

Also, I notice that my Windows Firewall still says "some settings are controlled by group policy" (or something to that effect) which is not a setting that I engaged. How do I fix this/is this a bad sign?

Also, after I removed the two things from Hijack This and restarted the computer in safe mode and then rebooted into normal mode again, a folder had appeared on my desktop entitled Backups; it has two files in it, both 1 KB, which say that they were created at the exact time at which I deleted the two items from hijack this. What do I do about this?


Thank you so much for all of your help.

I rescanned with Hijack This just now, and
O23 - Service: Primary Disk Manager (pdman) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\system32\pman32.exe (file missing)
still showed up in the log, even though I checked it and the clicked "fix checked." I did this twice, yet this does not seem to go away. Is this a serious problem?

Hi again,

Those backup folders appeared because you are running HijackThis from your desktop. HijackThis creates backup folders in the same folder where it its located.

Sorry about that -- I forgot to tell you that HJT needs to be moved. Here's my standard canned speech for that:

You are running HijackThis from your desktop. This is dangerous because backups can get accidentally deleted. Please install a copy in its own folder, as follows:First, delete the HijackThis file currently on your computer.

Then, download the self-extracting installation file here. Save it to your desktop.

Next, double-click the HijackThis_SFX.exe file icon. A window will open. Accept the default installation folder by clicking Unzip on the right side of the window.

Navigate to the program by clicking Start, My Computer, then double clicking C:, Program Files. Find the HijackThis folder and double-click it to open.

If you would like to make a shortcut for your Desktop so it's more easily accessible, right click the HijackThis icon (it looks like a detonator with some dynamite sticks) and choose Send To > Desktop (create shortcut) .
That 0.log file CCleaner deleted was zero bytes as it should be. So there is nothing amiss there. It is normal for many programs to create temp files as part of their operation, so as a general rule, the fact that CCleaner keeps finding them is not a worry. It is a reason to run such a cleaning program on a regular basis.

Let's take a different approach to getting rid of that pman.exe line in Hijack this.

Open Notepad, then copy and paste the text in the Code box into Notepad:

REGEDIT4

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\pdman]

Press <Enter> to add a blank line.

Make sure the "Save as Type" field says "All Files." Save the text file pasted into notepad to the desktop as fix.reg. Close Notepad and then re-open it.

In a similar way, cut and paste the content of this code box:

attrib -s -h -r c:\windows\system32\pman32.exe
del  c:\windows\system32\pman32.exe
pause
exit

As before, save this file to your desktop as type "All Files," but name it delete.bat.

Next, you may want to print off the rest of these instructions, as we will be working in Safe Mode.

Now reboot the computer into Safe Mode.

Then please go to the desktop and double-click on fix.reg, and click Yes to merge it with the registry. You should get a message confirming that it was merged successfully. If you get an error message make a note of it.

Then run the delete.bat file. A black DOS box will appear with a prompt to "press any key." Before you do so, look to the lines above to see if there is an error message. If there is, write it down. If there is no error message that means the file existed and was deleted successfully. Then press a key and the window will close.

Now reboot into normal mode. Run a fresh HijackThis scan. Copy and paste it into your next reply, along with your observations on how the reg file and batch file worked.

The group policy changes to the XP firewall settings are undoubtedly a result of the infection you had. We can reverse them, but I would suggest you install a third-party two-way firewall program instead. The Windows firewall only blocks incoming traffic; if a trojan gets onto the computer, the XP firewall cannot prevent it from "phoning home." So I would suggest you disable the Windows firewall and install one of these instead:

Zone Alarm

Sygate

Outpost Firewall Free

Kerio personal firewall

For more information about firewalls, please read this tutorial.

In safe mode, I couldn't make these changes under the administrator name; I had to do it under my login name. Does that matter?

The reg. file worked successfully, however the batch file gave the error message that said that the pman32.exe file could not be found.

Assuming that everything is fine now, do I delete the backup files that hijack this made originally, which are currently saved on my desktop? also, do I delete the reg. and batch files I just used? Also, under my computer and then the C drive, a hidden folder entitled RECYCLER shows up--it has some stuff in it, none of which I know what it actually is, but I know that the recycler name had something to do with the infection I got; should I delete this folder?


As far as firewalls go, I have Trend Micro PCCillin protecting my computer; can I use this firewall only, or do I need to download one of the ones you listed? I thought having multiple firewalls was a bad idea... Also, will the group policy settings inhibit any other firewall's ability to protect my pc? Is it really okay for me to not bother trying to reverse the group policy changes?


Thanks so much!

Hi Westernisbest,

Sorry, I missed the Trend Micro firewall. You don't need or want any others, what you have heard is correct. Don't worry about the group policy, as long as you have a working firewall that is all that matters.

Working under your normal login account in safe mode was OK.

The fact that the batch file returned an error is fine. I just wanted to make sure that file was really gone. HijackThis sometimes reports a missing file in error, i.e. the file is really still there.

Assuming that everything is fine now, do I delete the backup files that hijack this made originally, which are currently saved on my desktop? also, do I delete the reg. and batch files I just used?



Yes.

Also, under my computer and then the C drive, a hidden folder entitled RECYCLER shows up--it has some stuff in it, none of which I know what it actually is, but I know that the recycler name had something to do with the infection I got; should I delete this folder?



Don't worry about the Recycler folder, I have one on my computer as well. Here is an article that explains what it is. We will be purging those files when we do final cleanup. First however I have another question --

Is your Trend Micro Antivirus now working correctly?

I think trend micro is working properly; the firewall is definitely fine (it comes up with those little spyware warning popups when I go to particular websites, so I know that is good). The scanner only works when it does its scheduled scan, so if I click for it to scan, nothing happens. I already asked tech support at trend micro about that problem, and they said I ought to reinstall the program, but I thought I should wait to do that until I was sure that my computer was no longer infected. But should I reinstall it now?

I deleted the backups and the two programs that were on the desktop, but I didn't touch the recycler folder.

Hi again,

I think you can try removing and reinstalling Trend Micro antivirus now, but first let's do some cleanup.

Let's get rid of temporary files and folders:

Get ATF Cleaner here . It does not require installation, just download it to your desktop.
Double-click the ATFCleaner icon on your desktop to launch the program. For this first run, check the select all box on the main page, then click Empty selected. Then, if you use Firefox or Opera, click on the appropriate tab and repeat the same drill.

After doing this, try your reinstallation of the Trend Micro AV and see if it now functions properly. Suggestion: If you have an installation disk for this program do the reinstall with the computer disconnected from the internet. Then, once the program is reinstalled, go back online and make your very first stop the Trend Micro Updates page.

Let me know how it goes.

Dave

I haven't had a chance to do anything that you suggested in your last post because this has been an unusually hectic last few days, but I was about to do the temp file cleanup now when I came back to the computer and saw these results of my trend micro virus scan (the scheduled weekly one):

Virus Name Status File Name
TROJ_Generic Quarantine C:\Documents and Settings\LocalService\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\41YNA183\nu.[1].exe
TROJ_Generic Quarantine C:\RECYCLER\dc02.exe

What does this mean? I guess I'll wait for your response before I do the cleanup, just in case. Thank you!

Hi again,

Trend Micro says TROJ_GENERIC is their generic name for low-threat trojans. Maybe nothing to worry about, but apparently they were not found before. How often does your PC_Cillin do a scheduled scan?

Go ahead and run the cleanup. Then run a fresh HijackThis scan and post the log here.

Dave
