Malicious Virus attack!
Dear Forum members;
I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. I contracted a dsc.exe virus yesterday. Solutions I found for removing it did not work – I assume they were written for other OS’s. However, this morning I managed to remove it using MBAM. I quarantined all the viruses, in case of problems, and problems have appeared:
1) There are strange messages on bootup:
On starting up, the system gives two Run DLL reports:
There was a problem starting
C:\Users\Xuyuan\AppData\Local\imanivago.dll
The specified module could not be found.

There was a problem starting
C :\Users\Xuyuan\AppData\Local\kSLexi.dll
The specified module could not be found.

2) Whenever I try to upload or send email, firefox crahes, forcing me to reboot the computer. This happens sending Gmail, and also uploading docs to this forum. It gives the following error, and I cannot access any programs without rebooting. I have unloaded and reinstalled Firefox once already, to no avail.
Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
Runtime Error!
Program: C:\Program Files (86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe
This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an
unusual way.
Please contact the application support team for more information.

I thus don’t see the point in contacting Firefox, as the issue is with something that MBAM removed during the cleanup of dsc.exe.
As per forum instructions, I have already downloaded and run Microsoft® Windows® Malicious Software Removal Tool, which found nothing.
I ran ATF-Cleaner.
When running GMER Rootkit Scanner, it yielded the following message on startup:
C:\Windows\system32configsystem: The system cannot find the file specified.

And when it opened, most of the options were greyed out, apart from Services, Registry, Files and ADS.

On scanning it gave the following error message:
C:\Windows\system32\config\system: The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.

It then reported that it hadn’t found any system modification.
I then ran MBAM once again. With X result.
I’ve attached a picture of all the viruses MBAM picked up, some of which I think I need to clean or reinstall clean versions of to get my system running again, as well as a Hijack this log, and the two DDS scans.

Quite desperate, as Firefox, with all of its bookmarks and extensions, is imperative for my work!

Thanks so much for your help!~

Part of your problem is you are using programs which are not compatible with Windows 7 and/or also not compatible with a 64bit system.
GMER runs only on Windows NT/W2K/XP/VISTA

Malwarebytes's IS compatible with Windows 7 and 64bit systems however, where is the log? We can make no determinations of what is going on if we don't see all the logs and Malwarebytes' is a KEY log we must see, not a Printscreen of Quarantine.We have to see the actual log created when the removals were done. Since you have run this twice it likely would be the second log from the bottom in the Logs Tab of the program. I must see this log.

Please do not attach logs, copy/paste them. This protects others here from the possibility of downloading and infected file to their own computer.
Copy/Paste that Malwarebytes' log here pleas.

You receive the message when starting about the two items noted below because both are serious Trojans and were removed by Malwarebytes'

C:\Users\Xuyuan\AppData\Local\imanivago.dll
C :\Users\Xuyuan\AppData\Local\kSLexi.dll

You are receiving the message because they obviously were set to run at start up but since they were removed, as they should have been, sot therefore they cannot be found. And you most definitely DON'T want them back.

The version of HiJackThis you have used is literally years out of date. Please download the newest version which is 2.0.4 from this link http://free.antivirus.com/hijackthis/

Thanks so much for replying! I've followed your instructions, and describe below what else I have done and found since last post.

Since posting, I found a suspicious add-on in Firefox called "Java String Helper" which wouldn't uninstall or be disabled. I deduced it was responsible for the runtime error through a process of elimination of 1) running Firefox in safemode w/o reproducing the problem and 2) disabling the other add-ons outside of safe mode and still reproducing the issue.

So, I went to the registry editor, found the add-on keys, and traced their connection to a folder in C:\Users\Xuyuan\AppData\Roaming\5005.

I also found two other suspicious folders in the same directory:

C:\Users\Xuyuan\AppData\Roaming\cock which was full of cookies to adsites that had been generated since the time of the infection

and another folder
C:\Users\Xuyuan\AppData\Roaming\xmldm which was full of registry keys and htm files with keystroke records for sites that I'd logged into since the infection.

I've deleted the reg key and all three folders. The add-in has not reappeared since, and the run-time error has gone away.

There is still one suspicious Registry Entry, which refers to C:\Users\Xuyuan\AppData\Local\{05F9B574-645C-4D1A-BB9B-17AE556D87AE}\
This folder contains files called install.rdf, chrome.manifest (I don't run Chrome on my computer), and sub-folders called chrome\content\ with files _cfg.js and overlay.xul. They were all last modified (I think created) at the suspected time of infection. I haven't deleted them yet.

I'm worried, however, that as MBAM didn't catch the keylogger and add-in the first time around, that other variants of it may still be present elsewhere, possibly hidden in IE folders. Being unsure of what to do next, I installed and ran Ad-Aware, which is still scanning (I have 2T worth of data attached to my computer), but so far it's found only 2 items, and the Chrome folders and regkey are still intact.

I append the MBAM log from two days ago, and the recent Hijack this log afterwards. (In my defense, I used the hijack this link from the forum instructions). I assumed the incompatibility with GMER was to do with my OS, thank you for confirming that. I thought it best that you and other readers know that it didn't work.

Thanks again so much for your time and help.

Not that crazy about AdAware frankly. I know it is compatible with Windows 7 but can find no info that it is compatible with Windows 7 64bit.

This is also where you are at of a bit of disadvantage as many of the security programs are not compatible with a 64bit system.
You can try the Sophos Rootkit program, it is compatible with 7.
You will have to fill out an information form in order to download it but be sure you don't say you want info or newsletters.

Hi, thanks for this suggestion.
Adaware still scanning, now 14 hits. Sophos now running too. I'll keep you posted with results.

There is absolutely NO way that an AdAware scan should take 10+ hours! which is what you seem to be saying. Turn it off and Uninstall it. That is 100% wrong. I wouldn't trust anything it supposedly is finding.

You should NEVER run two scans of any kind at the same time! Neither one will do a proper job that way.

It actually took over twenty hours, but like I said, I did a full scan and it was working through 2.5 terabytes of hard drive space. It found a number of items during that time, all of which have been removed.

By the time sophos got to the system, it only found hidden files that it didn't recognise but that it also didn't recommend uninstalling. Some of these were files for software, like Daemon.exe.

Thanks for your feedback and willingness to help and offer advice. It's much appreciated.

I still have to say, AdAware just isn't one of those programs chosen today as a "top of the line" as it once was, no matter how large a drive needed scanning and it also is NOT one of those mentioned as being able to clean out these especially difficult infections that are out there today. Are you still having the problems you noted?

Hi. Your point about Ad-aware noted, thanks. I'll be sure to use Sophos first in the future.

Problems solved once I manually deleted the Registry Entry and the associated folders in the Firefox directory.
But I was quite surprised a) that MBAM didin't find it, and b) that it was possible to do so by manually looking for "suspicious" registry keys. I clearly just got lucky this time.

Maybe dsc.exe has beaten out MBAM? I'm curious if Sophos would find it, but I'm not going to get reinfected just to test it out.

There would be no reason to use Sophos at all unless you suspect a rootkit, that is what that tool does, look for rootkits. It is no way related to anything that AdAware would look for. AdWare basically scans for spyware, not trojans and certainly not rootkits. It, at best, is a very minor removal program, much of which can be taken care of by proper cookie setting and security settings. If you want a better scanner then use SpyBot Search and Destroy.

Frankly am not sure what you mean about MBA-M not finding anything: It clearly found and removed
Memory Processes Infected: 1
Memory Modules Infected: 2
Registry Keys Infected: 8
Registry Values Infected: 6
Registry Data Items Infected: 0
Folders Infected: 0
Files Infected: 16
So how can you say it didn't find and remove anything?
The KEY way these multiple infections work is to disable malware scanners. They LOOK like they are working but in reality they are not. This has been a KNOWN occurrence since the appearance of this family of infections more than a year ago. It isn't new or rare.
When you removed those deterents manually and then re-scanning MBA-M did remove them. What you did was remove the processes that masked the true infected files so that MBA-M could find them.

There is an automatic tool which will do exactly the same thing so that MBA-M and others CAN run, they didn't have to be done manually.

Another thing you say in your first post I find most disconcerting;
I’ve attached a picture of all the viruses MBAM picked up, some of which I think I need to clean or reinstall clean versions of to get my system running again,

Why in the world would you want to reinstall ANY of the files removed by MBA-M? They are clearly infections, not necessary files and registry entries and certainly not ones which should be reinstalled.
