Infested with Sirefef-ZT Trojan
« on: October 12, 2012, 12:01:43 AM »
My Windows 7 has just infested with Sirefef-ZT trojan detected by avast
And I couldn't find any cure online.
Is there any tools available to delete this?

The file it's affecting is c:\Windows\System32\service.exe   if i remembered it correctly

Thanks

hi chanwhk,

services.exe is a necessary windows system file.  It is needed even if it is infected, so do not delete it, quarantine it, or rename it in any way, shape, or form.

Running the programs recommended by adotd is the proper way to go, as is attaching the resulting logs in your next reply.  That way, no damage should ever occur to your system.

Yes.  Unfortunately, that is par for the course.  Rootkits are often designed to download additional malware, the more the better.  Ugh!

You might want to consider using another computer until this one is given the all clear.  Maximize cleansing time, and reduce the chance of re-infection while the cleansing is ongoing.

[b]EDIT:[/b]  Use "Attachments and other options" below the reply text box to attach your resulting logs.  Will save you a considerable amount of time and work to get this done.  Click that link below to open, then attach your logs.  It is much easier than copy/paste operation.  Only takes a second or two to perform.

AdwCleaner is one of many anti-malware tools your malware cleaning expert has access to.  Would not worry overmuch about AdwCleaner crashing atm.  This issue may well be addressed when your expert comes in to assist you.
