Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise Service Pack 1 (X64)

This is a pretty expensive server to let users be browsing the web with it.

As this is a Server and it does not have System Restore like a workstation does this error is probably invalid, but you should confirm that the winmgmt service is running okay.

ATTENTION: System Restore is disabled
Check "winmgmt" service or repair WMI.

This IP restriction is probably valid, but just making you aware so you can check on it

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\IPSec\Policy\Local: [ActivePolicy] SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\IPSEC\Policy\Local\ipsecPolicy{b2e62bcf-8fbb-44c3-828d-7b6518e00534} <==== ATTENTION (Restriction - IP)


This is a relatively new infection.


I did not see any batch or links helping it in the logs, but probably need to check all of your scheduled tasks and make sure nothing wrong with one of them. Are you a System Admin and know how to check on that?

I did not see anything in task scheduler that looked like it did not belong. Although there are quite a few subfolders in the Microsoft folder there. Not sure how to go through all of those to determine anything out of place. Running tasks looks fine.

The only remnants from this infection seem to be that MalwareBytes blocks an outbound connection attempt to wmi.mykings.top  3 or 4 times a day.

Strange that a MalwareBytes scan does not detect and remove.

I ran Zemana on it, it detected the WMI f**kyoumm2_consumer and removed it. Is there anything else you might recommend? Otherwise I'll just wait to see if any more outbound connection attempts to mykings occurs.


Thank you again for all of your help here.

Yes, we could have removed the wmi consumer entry, but from looking at some other systems it seems to come back. But, since this is a server and works a bit differently than a workstation it's possible the file process that restores it has been removed already or was not able to get itself implanted onto the system.

Keep an eye on it and let me know.

Don't forget good backups of the system. Running browsers and such on a server is not recommended and the same tools and methods used to clean a workstation don't always work on a server.
