Er......this really sucks. Help, please?
« on: October 18, 2007, 10:56:25 PM »
Greetings,
I will be very happy and grateful if anyone can help me get rid of this thing...
Info, as accurate as I can make it:
I recently (a few days ago) reformatted my hard drive (let's call it D since I have another partition called C which I did not make any changes to.) So this means I reinstalled WinXP Pro on it; the reason why I reformatted was because I was having severe issues with booting my PC.
The next day I installed avast Home Edition, 3 hours later it tells me I have a trojan horse associated with the lsass.exe file.
The day after, it tells me of another Trojan.
Today, yet another.
Now I do not remember the names it gave me and they do not seem to be in the avast log even though I didn't erase it. All times it recommended me to 'move to chest' and so that's what I did in all cases.
Yesterday while I was browsing the net with my beloved MSIE v.6 I started getting random browser windows opening to various sites: some porn, some dating sites, etc. So I did some research and found out some stuff about BHOs which I did find running as processes, so I disabled them in IE. Upgrading to IE7 did not solve the problems. So I installed Firefox. The windows do not pop up in Firefox browsing windows. But, they still popped up in IE windows even when I did not have any IE windows running. I haven't yet discerned a pattern to when they do appear.
This still happened today. However, the big problem of today is that all of a sudden I started getting stuff that you see in the screenshot. Obviously, these messages are fake and not alerts from my OS but are caused by the virus/trojan/worm/whatever that I have. The messages that they bring up are persistent and varied and involve notifying me of infection and the need to download software to fix it (software which undoubtedly leads to more infection. No I have not downloaded any of it.) Also, I see I have two new icons on my desktop as you see.
So I ran avast virus cleaner and made sure I closed programs, disabled on-access protection. It found nothing.
Er.......also the problem I had prior to reformatting about not being able to boot up Windows with any amount of ease persists though it is definitely better than before. However, I do not know if this is related to this virus/trojan/worm/whatever or just some hardware issue.
Help, please. I have tried to be as detailed as I can. Yes it is messing up some of my programs.

Welcome to the forum.

The virus cleaning tool is for certain specific viruses, and is not intended for general scanning puposes.

Schedule a boottime scan. Open the avast interface and from the menu select schedule boottime scan. Move anything found to the chest.

You can run these also avg antispyware http://www.ewido.net/en/ , and superantispyware http://www.superantispyware.com/

And

Click here to download HJTsetup.exe



Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.
Doubleclick on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.

Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.

Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.

Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.

Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

The hjt log will probably have to be broken into multiple posts.[/list]

Hello, thanks for the quick responses.
I cannot find an option for a boottime scan for avast.
AVG tells me I have a bunch of Tracking cookies.
The superantispyware tells me it found 42 Tracking cookie adware items and 6 items called Trojan.WinFixer (4 of which in my registry keys, and one of these is a BHO). It gives me the option to quarantine, should I do this? This is the log:

Re you HJT log.

First you don't appear to have an active firewall, what is your firewall ?

Upload both of the files below, vopijige.dll and skthcmav.dll to VirusTotal (VirusTotal - Multi engine on-line virus scanner) and report the results. If as suspected multiple scanners report infection, send the samples to avast, see below. A google search on the above filenames returns zero hits, which in itself is suspicious

This one appears to be Vundo/Virtumonde
O3 - Toolbar: Security Toolbar - {11A69AE4-FBED-4832-A2BF-45AF82825583} - D:\WINDOWS\system32\vopijige.dll
See VundoFix below.

This one is suspect.
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SearchIndexer] rundll32.exe "D:\WINDOWS\system32\skthcmav.dll",sitypnow

If the above items are confirmed as infected at VirusTotal, then run HJT again and fix both the entries.

####
Send the sample to virus@avast.com zipped and password protected with password in email body and false positive/undetected malware in the subject.

Or you can also add the file to the User Files (File, Add) section of the avast chest where it can do no harm and send it from there (select the file, right click, email to Alwil Software). No need to zip and PW protect when the sample is sent from chest. A copy of the file/s will remain in the original location, so any further action you take can remove that.
####

VunodFix
Here are the cleansing instructions for Virtumonde: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic18610.html

Download VundoFix.exe to your desktop.

Ran it and all it found was one of the icon .lnk files that's been created on my desktop by this thing.

Also as far as I know I have the Windows Firewall on (just checked it), though I have exceptions enabled for Windows Live Messenger, µtorrent and Remote Assistance.

I'm going to wait to hear your opinions on the results before I take any action. The second file seems to be that Vundo thing you mentioned.

Windows XP's firewall is better than no firewall but, it lulls you into a false sense of protection, it doesn't provide outbound protection. Whilst the windows XP firewall is usually good at keeping your ports stealthed (hidden) it provides no outbound protection and you should consider a third party firewall.

Any malware that manages to get past your defences will have free reign to connect to the internet to either download more of the same, pass your personal data (sensitive or otherwise, user names, passwords, keylogger retrieved data, etc.) or open a backdoor to your computer, so outbound protection is essential.

Send samples of both the files to avast (I would suggest you add them to the user files section of the avast chest and send from there), before you download Read and print the VundoFix instructions so you can follow them and then run VundoFix.

Once you have done that run HJT and check if these entries that I mentioned before have gone, if not, tick the fix box to the left of the entry and click the Fix button.

The first file would seem to be a toolbar also related to vundo so hopefully that too will be picked up when you run vundofix.

Okay, is there a good firewall you recommend?

I ran VundoFix.exe and the alerts are now gone! WOoot! I still got a few pop up ads in IE but then I found yet another BHO add-on, disabled it and so far it seems to be alright. I think I've just been converted to Firefox.

As well, I suppose I should have sent the two files to avast before I ran the fix, now I don't think I can send them so sorry about that.

Also I ran Hijack and did not find these two entries:

Hopefully it is gone, thanks to all of you for your help, especially DavidR. And hopefully I won't have the misfortune to come back for more help...you guys were very quick and efficient, nice to know some people give their time and skills to help people they don't even know, especially considering that others only use their time and skills to screw over people they also don't even know. ::)

@ alex1234

This needs fixed as it is a remnant of having cleaned out Vundo.
O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {11A69AE4-FBED-4832-A2BF-45AF82825583} - (no file)

This isn't really needed to run on boot, but also see my comments below.
O4 - HKLM\..\RunOnce: [RunOnceEx] rundll32.exe D:\WINDOWS\system32\iernonce.dll,RunOnceExProcess

I'm assuming that IE opens automatically after boot (?) for me I don't feel this is a good idea, especially if your considering Firefox as your default browser. I hate things loading automatically on or after boot unless they are absolutely essential.

The strange thing about this is it is supposed to be related to IE 5.5, the other strange thing is it wasn't on your first HJT log and being a suspicious sod. I would suggest you upload iernonce.dll to VirusTotal for checking also, though this file should be a legit in that system32 folder.

Other than that I don't see anything else obvious in your HJT log.

It is a shame that you didn't send the files to avast to help improve detections, but it is hard to think logically when your a** is in the fire.

Comodo firewall as Tech mentions works well with avast.

In my view firefox is much less susceptible to these pop-ups, etc. as for one it doesn't have BHOs that can blight IE. There are also many, many, extensions that can improve your browser experience and make you more secure, NoScript should be a mandatory pick for an extension.

We're glad that we could help, welcome to the forums.
Stick around and browse the forums, especially the sticky topics at the top of each of the forums, not to mention the avast help file. They provide a wealth of information to help you get the best from avast.

It doesn't.

Done and it came out clear.

Er, just as I typed the above, I started to get the fake alerts that appear in the taskbar again. I can almost laugh. Never mind, I am laughing. Ah well, at least I can send the files to avast this time. I believe that this started at about the same time of day as yesterday. Coincidence?

Well, I ran Hijack This again and found another suspicious file that VirusTotal tells me is bad (O3 - Toolbar: Security Toolbar - {11A69AE4-FBED-4832-A2BF-45AF82825583} - D:\WINDOWS\system32\ixnnajpv.dll) so I guess I'll run VundoFix again; if that doesn't work there's always the VirtumundoBeGone.
