Hi,
Can anyone help on a few problems that I've got...

Got a program thats kinda morphing (?), noticed an odd file name in task manager (a random combination of 6 or so letters) and saw that the details were all: TODO: <Product Name>
in the directory c:\windows\system32

I end the task and then a new file name (6 different letters) loads with the same details. Been hunting around all day, with no luck, but have got winpatrol running which keeps detecting that this thing is 'morphing' every 5 minutes or so!


Other problem:
Keep getting a popup called Aurora.
Dunno much about it (becaue I close it when its loading up!), but it may be connected to the last problem that I have got and that is that I've had a trogen/spy/adware of some sort disconnecting me from my connection and the dialing a premium rate number!
Got caught once (cost me nealy £1 for 14 seconds connected! and pulled the plug out the wal the other time that it was trying to connect)

I'm running xp home, SP2, got adaware, spybot, avast antivirus running with spyblaster and winpartol (as of today).

Got a feeling all problems may be connected as they all started last night!

Any suggestions?

Thanks
Adrian

Hi Adrian,

Many of these infections do "morph", and because of that, they can be rather difficult to weed out.

Please do this to start with:

Download HijackThis:

http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html

Once downloaded::

A) Create a folder outside of any Temp/Temporary folders for HJT and move it there now. A folder such such as C:\HijackThis or C:\Spyware Tools\HijackThis will do.
One of the normal steps in eliminating malicious programs is to entirely delete the contents of all Temp folders. Given that, if HijackThis (and other data that you care about) is living in those Temp folders, it will be erased along with everything else!

B) Run HijackThis, but do not have HJT fix anything yet; only have it scan your system! Once the scan is complete, the "Scan" button will turn into an option to "Save log...". Save the log in the folder you created for HiajckThis, open the log in Windows Notepad, and cut-n-paste the entire contents of the log here. The log contents will tell us a lot about what "nasties" have crept into your system, and once we analyse the log we can tell you what to do from there.

Heres my Hijack This log:

Having a quick scan through myself, what is the new.net thing?
an example of the file that is morphing or doing whatever its doing is currently,
c:\windows\system32\fpixbja.exe
well is it was when I did the log! just having a look in task manager now its now, nxqqkb.exe !!!

Please download the Ewido Security Suite from http://www.ewido.net/en/
Install it and update it online.
Boot into safe mode and run Ewido, allowing it to clean up what it finds.
Boot back into normal mode when done and post another log please.

Followed instructions. New Log below. Error message when I boot up (obviously connected to the scan!):

RUNDLL
Error loading C:\Progra~1\NEWDOT~3.DLL
The specified Module could not be found
OK

Scan seems to have removed that morphing program (6/7 random letters.exe!) Nail.exe still seems to be there (ewido picked it out as a problem?)

Thanks for your help so far
Adrian

- If you do see newdotnet6_38-1.dll listed in the "Keep" window, put a check in the "I know what I'm doing" box, hilight newdotnet6_38-1.dll, and click the ">>" button to move newdotnet6_38-1.dll to the "Remove" window. Click Finish and then OK to complete the fix.

b) Run HijackThis again and have it fix:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [New.net Startup] rundll32 C:\PROGRA~1\NEWDOT~1\NEWDOT~3.DLL,NewDotNetStartup -s
O10 - Broken Internet access because of LSP provider 'c:\program files\newdotnet\newdotnet6_38-1.dll' missing
(<-- if still present)

2. For the "Nail.exe" infection, reboot into Safe Mode (you get to the safe mode boot option by hitting the F8 key as your computer is starting up) and:

a) In your Start menu, click the "Run..." option, type the following command in the "Open:" box, and click OK:
services.msc

When the Services console opens, locate "System Startup Service",
right-click on it, and choose "Properties". On the "General" tab under "Service Status" click the "Stop" button to stop the service. Beside "Startup Type" in the dropdown menu select "Disabled". Click Apply then OK. Exit the Services console.

b) Run HJT and have it fix the following (don't close HJT after the fixes are done though):

F2 - REG:system.ini: Shell=Explorer.exe C:\WINDOWS\Nail.exe
O23 - Service: System Startup Service - Unknown - C:\WINDOWS\svcproc.exe
Once HJT completes the fixes:

- Click on the "Config" button in the lower right corner. In the next window click on the "Misc Tools" button at the top then click the "Delete an NT service" button. Type the following in the box and click OK:

svcproc


- Again in the "Misc Tools" window, click on "Delete a file on reboot". In the Explorer windows that opens, navigate to C:\WINDOWS\Nail.exe and double-click on it. Click "Yes" in the resulting reboot confirmation dialog box and allow the system to reboot normally.


3. Run HJT and post a fresh log.

0

Ok, followed again, log below.
couple of things:
Your instruction 2b) 023 - service..... wasn't there, so didn't do anything
and couldn't find "Delete an NT service", so again didn't do anything!

Also, new error message on startup:

C:\WINDOWS\NAIL.EXE
Windows cannot find 'C:\Windows\Nail.exe'. Make sure that you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the start button, and then click search.
OK

Oh, winpatrol has not detected this morphing program - GREAT!- and the Aurora popup seems to have gone, and haven't had a dialer interfering either. Guess its just the niggly things left???

Also, new error message on startup:

C:\WINDOWS\NAIL.EXE
Windows cannot find 'C:\Windows\Nail.exe'...

Have HJT fix this one again and let's see if it takes this time:

F2 - REG:system.ini: Shell=Explorer.exe C:\WINDOWS\Nail.exe


2 .

Your instruction 2b) 023 - service..... wasn't there...and couldn't find "Delete an NT service"...

Ah- thanks for that info; it alerted me to something I missed before:

You are running a slightly older version of HiajckThis. Please download the latest version (1.99.1) from here, run it, and post the log that new version generates.

Ok, downloaded new version, new log:
Nail error message has gone (and disappered from the log I notice!)

No nasties that I can see in your lastest log, although the following entries indicate that your install of Avast! may have taken a hit in the process:

O23 - Service: avast! Mail Scanner - Unknown owner - C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4\ashMaiSv.exe" /service (file missing)
O23 - Service: avast! Web Scanner - Unknown owner - C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4\ashWebSv.exe" /service (file missing)

You might want to uninstall and reinstall Avast! just to be on the safe side.

How are things behaving now; still seeing any signs of malicious activity?

Everything seems to be working ok. No popups, no error messages, and no odd/unknown programs displayed in task manager.

I'll uninstal and the reinstall Avast, and see if everything is working ok!

Thanks alot for your help
(I see that I wasn't the only one with an older version of HJT this evening!)

Now all I've got to do is get my email account back up an running again!
<trying to log on this evening I'm getting a message saying that the account is being locked! I can't think why, so I've got to go through the hassel of contacting the uni to sort it out in the morning!> Not everything can be perfect can it!

Thanks again

OK- do that, and let us know how it goes. If everything still appears to be cool I'll mark this one as solved.

Groan- I hope they haven't mistaken you for a spammer (and that you have paid your bill)...

Thanks again

You're welcome.
Yeah, we're busy little beavers around here- we try to munch on as many HJT logs as humanly possible (although I think for crunchie, a few hundred logs a day only counts as a snack). :)

Seems like I can have it all my way tonight afterall.
Uninstalled and reinstalled avast, updated and all is fine, HJT log looks ok now.

And my email seems to be up and running again!

Hi macdaddyjfg,

First of all- welcome to TechTalk!

We ask that members not tag their questions on to a thread previously started by another member (regardless of how similar your problem might seem). Not only does it divert the focus of the thread away from the original poster's problem, but it also makes it less likely that you yourself will get the individual attention that you need.

That being the case, I've split your post into its own separate thread, which you can find here.

For a full description of our posting guidelines and general rules of conduct, please see this page:
