Gents:
Every now and then I decide to run a HiJack this in order to seew hat's in there and make sure all is clean.

Ran this morning and got the following log. I went through and ran the following:
Adaware - CWShredder - TrojanHunter - Bazooka
Cleaned everything as necessary. Compared this log to one from a clean session and did not see anything unwarranted (though I will admit I am stioll learning about the 016 entries)

I try to clean the 01 entries but they return.
Any advice would be appreciated!
Thanks
agavzy

Thanks

Can you try the Symantec removal tool first. I need to see if it's any good :D. That's if you do not mind me experimenting with you?
http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/pf/spyware.look2me.html
Follow the instructions from Symantec.
Once done, please do the following;

Reboot.

Download and run VX2Finder(.exe).
http://www.downloads.subratam.org/VX2Finder.exe

Open the program and click the 'Click to Find VX2.aBetterInternet' button. This will attempt to find all VX2 related files and registry keys and when present display them in its logfile. To create a logfile, click the button named: 'Make Log'. This will open logfile using Notepad. Please post (copy/paste) the results and post them in this topic.

Download these two tools:

http://www.downloads.subratam.org/DllCompare.exe
&
http://www.downloads.subratam.org/KillBox.exe

Run Dllcompare by clicking the "Run Locate.com" then click Compare button... when done post that log here.

Crunchie:

Good to hear from you again - this one has been a real pain in the butt! And the pop-ups are becoming VERY annoying!

Downloaded the Symantic tool and tried to run - it kept getting hung on the mcshield.exe process. Would not let me kill the program and had to reboot so that I could run the others.

Also - I've been to c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts and have found the following entries:
127.0.0.1 www.igetnet.com
127.0.0.1 code.ignphrases.com
127.0.0.1 clear-search.com
127.0.0.1 r1.clrsch.com
127.0.0.1 sds.clrsch.com
127.0.0.1 status.clrsch.com
127.0.0.1 www.clrsch.com
127.0.0.1 clr-sch.com
127.0.0.1 sds-qckads.com
127.0.0.1 status.qckads.com
69.20.16.183 auto.search.msn.com
69.20.16.183 search.netscape.com
69.20.16.183 ieautosearch

Everytime I erase them and then close and open the file - they're baaaacck!

In any event, as promised, here are the VX2Finder and Dllcompare logs.
Also - I did run DllCompare earlier and tried to get rid of some of the files it listed, even tried it under safeboot, but the system would not allow it:
------------------------------------------------------------

Download L2mfix from one of these two locations:

http://www.atribune.org/downloads/l2mfix.exe
http://www.downloads.subratam.org/l2mfix.exe

Save the file to your desktop and double click l2mfix.exe. Click the Install button to extract the files and follow the prompts, then open the newly added l2mfix folder on your desktop.

Close any programs you have open since this step requires a reboot.

From the l2mfix folder on your desktop, double click l2mfix.bat and select option #2 for Run Fix by typing 2 and then pressing enter, then press any key to reboot your computer. After a reboot, your desktop and icons will appear, then disappear (this is normal). L2mfix will continue to scan your computer and when it's finished, notepad will open with a log. Copy the contents of that log and paste it back into this thread, along with a new hijackthis log.

IMPORTANT: Do NOT run any other files in the l2mfix folder until you are asked to do so!

Crunchie:

Did what you had asked (and also did some other things last night).
Last nite - enabled system restore boot. Went in this morning and erased EVERYTHING that had a creation date of 2/03/05 (date of infection). Erased hosts file as well. Did an extra search and finally found gurard.tmp - erased that one too!

Downloaded file as requested, attached are logs from L2Mfix and HJT. By the by - recycle bin now shows files.

Thanks

Run Hijackthis and go to the process viewer by going to Config, Misc Tools, Process Viewer, to unload all instances of the following running processes;
wiwqww.exe

Go to C:\WINDOWS\System32 and delete that file manually.

Go here and download and run Silent Runners.vbs. It generates a log, please post the information back in this thread.

Process killed and deleted. File downloaded and run - here's the log:

By the way - why is it that when you have 'spyware' on your pc, the pop-ups you get are for spyware cleaners? Makes you wonder who put them there in the first place.

Really, though, do you know of a dowload manager that does not come with spy-adware? Curious to see if one exists.

Anyway - here's the log:

I'm looking at the file and it seems to indicate that wiwqww is still there, I've checked, its not.


Also, should I be questioning the existance of hzhxhh.exe as well?
As always - thanks Crunchie

Looks like you have/had the qoologic trojan.

Please go here and download Find_qoologic.zip by baskar1234. Unzip the folder and go to the new qoologic folder and doubleclick on qoologic.bat to run it. It will take a few minutes to scan your drive so be patient. When it has finished, open My Computer, doubleclick on C: and copy and paste the contents of the below logs in this thread.

C:\log.txt
C:\win.txt
C:\start.txt

Go here and download FindIt.zip to your Desktop, unzip it and open the FindIt folder and doubleclick on find.bat. Let it run (please be patient, it will take a few minutes) and when it has finished gathering info, it will generate a file called Output.txt. Please copy it and paste it back in this thread.

Crunchie -

Downloaded and ran as instructed. Qoologic.bat only created one file: log.txt:

Find.bat created a series of files, however none were called 'output.txt'. All are listed here:

That findit log does not look right. Appears to have been cut short. Do this in the meantime, then re-run Findit and post the log. It should only put one log out.

Run Pocket Killbox and paste the full file path of each of the below files in the box and click on Standard File Kill and End Explorer Shell While Killing File. Click on the button with the red circle and an X in the middle after you enter each file (see the files below).

C:\WINDOWS\System32\wiwqww.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\hzhxhh.exe
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\huhfhh.exe

Reboot afterwards if the files are successfully deleted.

If all files are not deleted, do not reboot yet. Run Pocket Killbox again and paste the full file path in the box and click on Delete on Reboot. Next click on the button with the red circle and an X in the middle. You will get a message saying "File with be deleted on next reboot, Process and Reboot now?" Click "Yes" to reboot only after the last file you enter.

Have uploaded a reg fix for you to use once you have rebooted. Unzip the file to your desktop and double click to run it. When asked if you want to merge it with your registry, click yes.

Reboot and post another HJT log and a silent runners log, as well as the Find_it log.

EDIT. Have uploaded the output.txt log from my PC to show you what it should look like.

All done as requested, though the Find-it still created a number of output logs. I did look at the file and you're right, it doesn't look as if it completed - interesting. Also - when I went into my root directory to locate the findit subdirectory. I found a subdirectory called !Submit. Have no idea what this one is, but thought I would mention it.

In any event, here are the logs:

HJT - SilentRunner - FindIt(s)

Man - this one is a PAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!

Will run the FindIt lines 1 at a time if you think it would help under the ms-dos window - no problem - let me know if you think it would help

I know nothing of Dos, so I am no help to you there. If you think you can get better results that way though, by all means, try it :).

Run Hijackthis and go to the process viewer by going to Config, Misc Tools, Process Viewer, to unload all instances of the following running processes;
wiwqww.exe

Please download The Killbox from here: http://www.computercops.biz/zx/phoenix22/KillBox.zip

Unzip the files to a folder, then double-click on Killbox.exe to run it. In the "Paste Full Path of File to Delete" box, copy and paste the following on at a time:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\wiwqww.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\hzhxhh.exe

Place a ckeck in the "End Explorer.exe when killing file" box and hit the "kill file" button. Repeat for both files.

Reboot and check again for those files. If they are still there, try again in safe mode.

Crunchie:

Here's the deal:
I go in an kill all running tasks that include wiwqww, hzhxhh and huhfhh.
I then delete all of these files and the eoesee.dll. I then run adaware se and everything is clean.

I wait a few minutes and: eoesee.dll has returned to system32 as has wiwqww. In addition, a subdirectory - c:\!submit has appeared and it contains both the wiwqww and eoesee. I go into safe mode and kill everything again, reboot into xp and its back.

Adaware se indicates that CoolWebSearch is present due to the eoesee.dll
It also indicates that VX2 is present due to registry keys and wiwqww. I downloaded the vx2 add-on from lava-soft, but it didn't delete anything.

There must be another file in there someplace that is causing all of this, but I can't seem to find it. Is there anyway to prevent the system from executing a command without telling me that it is doing so?

Okay - May have found the culprit but am running some tests to find out. Seems that one of the anti-spyware apps on the next looked at everything running in memory and tells you who created it, if it thinks its malware, etc. Said that wiwqww was being run from a program - get this - called HiJackTHis v1.98 !!! Looked at my ad/remove programs under control panel and it was in there (how did that happen?) Removed it and am running some tests to see what the story is - will let you know what I find out. Will also supply name and link to program if this works - Keep your eyes crossed!

0

Okay - what a nightmare thisone has been.

Finally got a copy off of the MS website of a product called Microsoft-AntiSpyware. I ran it first, then ran the SE addition of AdAware.

Antispyware fopund a number of items and got rid of them - it then STAYS RESIDENT. When I was running AdAware, the Antispyware put up a message indicating that the VX2 was trying to reload itself and asked if I wanted to allow it to do so! What - are they kidding! Told it no way, it removed the last vestiges and then indicated that it needed to reboot. I let AdAware complete and then reboted. Seem to be clean at this point. Good program - go check it out.

Aslo - another hidden gem in HJT v1.99. Go to the config key on the lower right, then go to misc tools (top right) and finally select "open Process Manager". Gives the same info you would get if you hit ctrl-alt-del and asked for the processes under the task manager. Here's the hidden bonus - on the top right of the screen is a checkmark for "Show DLLs". Check the box and the screen splits in half. When you select a process in the top half of the window, you get to see what DLLs it is running in the bottom half! GREAT way to see what nast is running the dll you are trying to get rid of!

In any event - this one is closed
Thanks for the help
