Avast ANTIROOTKIT
« on: January 15, 2017, 07:52:10 PM »
Hello all
I downloaded Avast Antirootkit 0.9.6 and it executed it on my Windows 2008 R2 VPS server.
It found 29 items on HDD and masive amount of items in the registry, more then 5000 and it still works ...
Is it safe to Delete all those items?
Thank you.

Impossible to answer without the log

avast have a rootkits scanner (gmer) integrated in the AV engine and will perform a rootkit scan 8min after computer start

Hello
thank you for your answer.
I downloaded it from http://files.avast.com/files/beta/aswar.exe
and executed in the temp directory and it still running.
I see aswar.log file in program directory (it is currently about 2 MB) - do you need that file?
I did not restarted my server, just executed aswar.exe and clicked on Start scanning.
Thank you.

To answer your question, yes

OK I will upload a log once scanning is finished.
Before few days I saw that Google Chrome will not run any more (it displayed sad face so I asked Google for help.
They answered I need to try run some malware software.
I tried many of them and noticed that some of them want to install specific driver by Windows boot - to test the system - but they failed.
Then I was 99% sure that I have something but only Avast Antirootkit actually said there are Rootkits.
It runs now for more then hour and found more then 8000 items so I'm waiting it to finish.
I suppose I need to purchase some license to remove them?
Could you please give me any info about that?
Thank you.

No

when scan is finish, attach log, dont remove anything

also see here  >  https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=194892.0
Scroll down to second picture > Farbar recovery scan tool
Follow instructions and attach the two diagnostic logs

Then a expert will assist you tomorrow

There are searchengines  ;)

If you are running a server and need to ask the things you did here, I suggest you hire a real admin.

Hello
I did try other rootkit scanners but they can not run because they can not install some driver when booting. Only Avast was able to find them..
What real admin I need to hire? Could you please give me more info's?
Thank you.

I think the question is, why are you running Windows Server 2008?  Are you providing services to users or just running a no-cost OS?
