Win32 MBRoot - J[Trj] detected
« on: May 20, 2011, 01:01:24 PM »
greetings

i have recently needed to start using my desktop again after around 18 months (it is running win xp sp3). when i first started it all of my anti virus software was out of date, so i down loaded avast and comodo firewall.

after installation an avast detection popup appeared saying there was a rootkit on the system:

ROOTKIT INFORMATION
MBR: \\.\PHYSICALDRIVE0

i choose Delete Now and OK and was asked to run a boot-time scan, which i did.

during that process a second threat was discovered

Win32: MBRoot - J [Trj]

the thing is the location of the file was

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\ AVAST Software\Avast\arpot

so, as i wasnt sure if that meant the file had been moved to that location when detected or if in fact that avast file was infected, i chose to move it the virus chest.

now i continually get a repetation of this chain of events. should i re-run the boot-time scan and choose to delete the files?

also something else that has started happening is that whenever i turn the computer on it's bios settings are reset, so the clock is 1 jan 1970 etc.


i have run a Malwarebytes quickscan and it detected 5 infected registry keys which were quarantined and deleted successfully.

the log is as follows:

This C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\ AVAST Software\Avast\arpot is the location of the AntiRootkit Protection arpot folder, it has a temp folder but other than that it should be empty. So I don't know if this is just temporary data whilst the anti-rootkit scan is running.

The C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\AVAST Software\Avast\log\arpot.log file contains any anti-rootkit detection information. Check that file for more information.

Try running this tool to confirm if you actually have an MBR rootkit:
Quote from: essexboy
Download aswMBR.exe ( 575KB ) to your desktop.

Double click the aswMBR.exe to run it

Click the "Scan" button to start scan

 
On completion of the scan click save log, save it to your desktop and post in your next reply

Sounds like the CMOS battery is dying on your Motherboard.....

I believe it is Fix and not fixmbr.

If an MDR Rootkit found (confirmed):
* scan again then click "FIX" and reboot
* after reboot, scan again. then click "Save log" and post it in your next reply.
After the fix, if the second report/log comes up clean, then MBAM (update before the scan) and avast may find other things that were previously hidden. So run those scans again.

I once said someone to choose fix and then asyn and essexboy told me that Fix is only for TDL.Anyway

ok thanks i'll run the MBAM and Avast scans again and let you know

one thing that did happen on reboot was a small windows error pop up entitled 'SRY #001' with the error message 'CLED ERROR' - any idea what that might be or if it's related?

Do you Cubase installed?IOpen up task manager and close the application cled.exe if it is there.
Start->Run>type "msconfig",and under the startup tab uncheck the cled.exe process.

hi thank you all for your help so far  :)

however i appear to still have a further complication.

one of the reasons i was alerted to the fact my desktop had an infection is that i have been experiencing connection timeouts when trying to access a specific website and it's corresponding ftp (which i can view and connect to on my laptop using the same net connection). i contacted the webhost of the site and they have informed me that their security system had detected malware on my desktop and therefore were blocking it.

so after running all the scans suggested in this post i have tried to access the site again. my desktop still will not load the site, and when i contacted the host to explain that i had cleaned the infection they replied saying that they still detected a malware threat.

have you any further suggestions on what might be causing this please?
