Trojan.Utanioz? And Conduit problems


Recommended Posts

I had installed the latest Utorrent the day before and noticed it added a bunch of toolbar stuff 

 

to my browsers as well as changed my homepage.

I googled how to remove these things and did so. I also uninstalled Utorrent and the Conduit 

 

Super Search or whatever it was.

 

I noticed a few days ago when playing a game that I was getting serious FPS lag.So I closed out 

 

all my programs and checked task manager.

 

I noticed that at idle my system was using 30-40% of my 6GB of RAM.

Then I noticed some processes that I'd never seen there before:

1. winlogon.exe

2. csrss.exe

3. nvvsvc.exe

4. nvxdsync.exe

 

None of these programs have any description, cannot have the properties viewed, nor can they be 

 

ended.

 

So I immediately ran Malwarebytes, Spybot, NOD32. None of them turned up anything and the 

 

processes persisted. Then I rebooted, and noticed after logging in that Malwarebytes had not 

 

loaded with windows.

 

I then followed the process found on this forum for removing malware, etc.

I made sure all my anti malware programs were up to date. I ran CCleaner and cleaned thoroughly 

 

including registry. I booted into safe mode and ran all Malwarebytes, which came up with 3 

 

threats:

1. Trojan.Utanioz

2. Two instances of PUP.Optional.Conduit.A

 

I cleaned these items then ran SuperAntiSpyware, which found nothing.

I then ran Spybot which found nothing.

I then ran a full scan with MS Security Essentials, nothing

I rebooted and ran CCleaner again.

 

Checked Task Manager and found that the processes were still there.

 

So I decided I would reinstall windows 7.

I downloaded all my drivers, and the newest versions of anti malware programs.

I booted to Win7 disk, went to repair, opened command prompt, cleaned the 2 partitions of my 

 

SSD that I had windows installed to. Removed the partitions, created a new partition, formatted 

 

it.

Then I booted to disk again, went through Win7 install, formatted the partition again and 

 

installed to it.

 

As soon as I got to my desktop I checked task manager again, and there were the two processes 

 

again, with no description, no properties and unable to be ended.

1. winlogon.exe

2. csrss.exe

My RAM usage was lower at idle, but still using 10-12%.

 

Now I don't know how this problem persisted through a clean install of windows but it seems to 

 

have found a way.

 

I have 2 other Hardrives in my system that I install 99% of my programs to, including my 

 

antimalware programs, games, multimedia programs, etc.

 

Is it possible that the trojan or whatever it is somehow got rooted on one of these other 

 

drives, then infiltrates windows from there?

 

I attached my two DDS logs to this post.

I have attached the logs from the Anti-Rootkit.

 

I have also confirmed that the following are in working order:

Internet Access

Windows Update

Windows Firewall

 

System seems to be operating ok.

My main concern remains that 45% of my Physical Memory (6GB total) is in use when my system is at idle. (only MS Security Essentials running)

Well I take back my previous post.

 

I was poking around my hard drives, and I noticed a $RECYCLE.BIN folder on multiple drives.

 

Also a Config.Msi folder. 

 

Neither of which were there this morning and I have been at work all day.

A quick google on $RECYCLE.BIN leads me to believe I may be infected with the Zero Access Rootkit/Trojan

Just another quick update.

 

When I turned on my system this morning, before it got to the logon screen this occured:

 

Stage 1 of 2

Configuring Service Pack, Shutting Down

 

It rebooted then did the same thing

It rebooted then Stage 2 of 2 Assembling Service Pack

It stayed in this stage for a good 4 to 5 mins, then it rebooted

Then again Configuring Service Pack, then rebooted

Then finally it took me to the logon screen.

 

I wouldn't find this odd if I'd just installed some windows updates, however I had already installed all updates.

Alright, I just noticed a shortcut on my desktop named:

Continue Zip Opener Installation

It has a generic, unidentified file type icon.

No idea where that came from either..

 

Delete it.

------------------------------------

tage 1 of 2

Configuring Service Pack, Shutting Down

It rebooted then did the same thing

It rebooted then Stage 2 of 2 Assembling Service Pack

It stayed in this stage for a good 4 to 5 mins, then it rebooted

Then again Configuring Service Pack, then rebooted

Then finally it took me to the logon screen.

 

Sounds like the installation isn't or was not complete.

---------------------------------

One more scan and we'll see how it is.....

Please run a free online scan with the ESET Online Scanner

Note: You will need to use Internet Explorer for this scan.

http://www.eset.eu/online-scanner

Tick the box next to YES, I accept the Terms of Use.

Click Start

When asked, allow the ActiveX control to install

Click Start

Make sure that the options Remove found threats and the option Scan unwanted applications is checked

Click Advanced settings and select the following:

  • Scan potentially unwanted applications
  • Scan for potentially unsafe applications
  • Enable Anti-Stealth technology

Click Start

Wait for the scan to finish

Use Notepad to open the logfile located at C:\Program Files\EsetOnlineScanner\log.txt

Copy and paste that log as a reply to this topic

All drives should have a recycle bin.

Uninstall ComboFix:

Please Uninstall ComboFix: (if you used it)

Press the Windows logo key + R to bring up the "run box"

Copy and paste next command in the field:

ComboFix /uninstall

Make sure there's a space between Combofix and /

cf2.jpg

Then hit enter.

This will uninstall Combofix, delete its related folders and files, hide file extensions, hide the system/hidden files and clears System Restore cache and create new Restore point

(If that doesn't work.....you can simply rename ComboFix.exe to Uninstall.exe and double click it to complete the uninstall or download and run the uninstaller)

Double check to ensure that your files are hidden, go to the link below and make sure all the boxes to hide files, folders etc. are checked:

Did the Qoobox folder disappear and recycle.bin folders and other items become hidden again?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Lets check your computers security before you go and we have a little cleanup to do also:

Download Security Check by screen317 from HERE or HERE.

  • Save it to your Desktop.
  • Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
  • If you get Unsupported operating system. Aborting now, just reboot and try again.
  • A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt.
  • Please Post the contents of that document.
  • Do Not Attach It!!!

Qoobox is gone.

 

$recycle.bin and config.msi folders are still visible on one of my non-OS drives. (I deleted the $recycle.bin folder on the other because I thought it was placed there by a virus)
