Definitely! I'll post updates as I go along.
As for the symptoms, I don't seem to be getting any of the mentioned ones.
1. Browser redirection is still the most noticable symptom
2. All scan results, including dedicated MBR and rootkit scanners come back negative or inconclusive
3. Infects the Windows XP operating system on upward
4. If a user has ESET Smart Security onboard, its resident protection monitor will alert with: "Win32/Olmarik.TDL4 trojan in operating memory unable to clean"
5. Multiple Internet Explorer processes (that were not invoked by the user), persistently run in the background and respawn if they are terminated
6. Executing Bootrec /fixmbr from the Windows Recovery Environment will no longer be effective in removing the rootkit because this new TDL4 variant does not modify the original Windows MBR code
7. Executing Bootrec /fixboot from the Windows Recovery Environment is likely to result in a non-booting system because /fixboot will attempt to repair the TDL4 partition while leaving the malicious entry in the partition table intact.
I haven't been redirected while browsing (using either Internet Explorer or Firefox). There aren't multiple instances of IEXPLORE.EXE (not iexplorer.exe). And ESET has found some viruses but it hasn't finished. I can't understand symptoms 6 or 7, however.
