Infected... and confused.


Recommended Posts

Hi. I have been having problems with my search engine being 'hijacked' for the past 4 days, whenever I click on a link it would redirect me to 'clickover.cn' and then quickly redirect me again to some random site. While attempting to figure out why this was happening to me I downloaded and ran CCleaner, and SuperAntiSpyware which found yet another surprise on my computer: skynet.dll & .dat files in my system32 files with strange letter combos after the skynet part. Ex: system32\skynetbdriuymn.dll. I ran Malwarebytes which also discovered these files and then wanted to remove them. I had them removed & had to restart my computer for it to complete.

Upon restarting my computer I received a long string of error messages that appeared to be connected to every start up item on my task manager list. The message goes like this: globalroot\systemroot\system32\skynetbdriuymn.dll is not a valid windows image. Please check against your installation diskette. This message also pops up when I try to open any program such as IE or MalwareBytes. I ran McAfee virus scan & found this: NTOSKRNL-HOOK. McAfee appeared to be stuck there unable to remove or quarantine the trojan or move beyond it. I rebooted in safe mode (the error messages persisted) and then ran virus scan again & removed 2 instances of the virus from the computer. I then rebooted in normal mode (error messages still there).

I am at my wits end. I don't know what to do! The clickover.cn thing appears not to be doing any redirecting anymore. I reran malware bytes & it found nothing, but obviously I am still having issues. I have included a HijackThis Log and the new MalwareBytes log. Any help you can offer as to how to get rid of this skynet thing would be greatly appreciated!

Why won't it let me upload my HijackThis? It keeps saying 'upload failed. You are not permitted to upload this type of file' which doesn't make sense since it is a txt file just like the mbam log.

Hi,

Please download ComboFix from Here or Here to your Desktop.

**Note: In the event you already have Combofix, this is a new version that I need you to download. It is important that it is saved and renamed following this process directly to your desktop**

  1. If you are using Firefox, make sure that your download settings are as follows:
    • Tools->Options->Main tab
    • Set to "Always ask me where to Save the files".

[*]During the download, rename Combofix to Combo-Fix as follows:

CF_download_FF.gif

CF_download_rename.gif

[*]It is important you rename Combofix during the download, but not after.

[*]Please do not rename Combofix to other names, but only to the one indicated.

[*]Close any open browsers.

[*]Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.

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

  • Very Important! Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan. They can interfere with ComboFix or remove some of its embedded files which may cause "unpredictable results".
  • Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive. If yours is not listed and you don't know how to disable it, please ask.

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


  • Close any open browsers.
  • WARNING: Combofix will disconnect your machine from the Internet as soon as it starts
  • Please do not attempt to re-connect your machine back to the Internet until Combofix has completely finished.
  • If there is no internet connection after running Combofix, then restart your computer to restore back your connection.

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

[*]Double click on combo-Fix.exe & follow the prompts.

[*]When finished, it will produce a report for you.

[*]Please post the "C:\Combo-Fix.txt" along with a new HijackThis log for further review.

**Note: Do not mouseclick combo-fix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall**

If you still cannot get this to run, try booting into Safe Mode, and run it there.

To boot into Safe Mode, tap F8 after BIOS, and just before the Windows logo appears. A list of options will appear, select "Safe Mode."

If this doesn't work either, try the same method (above method), but name Combofix.exe to iexplore.exe instead, or winlogon.exe..

This because It also happens in some cases that malware blocks EVERY process except for what is in its own whitelist, so this whitelist also includes system important processes such as iexplore.exe, explorer.exe, winlogon.exe...

Extra note... Extra note: The combofix tutorial recommends to disable your Antivirus, in your case McAfee. For McAfee, I rather recommend to temporary uninstall it, because Mcafee causes a lot of problems with Combofix after reboot, this because McAfee enables again after reboot. So please temporary uninstall McAfee first, then reboot and then scan with Combofix.

That's ok. Please don't use this severly infected computer in a meanwhile, because malware downloads and installs more malware all the time + it damages a lot in a meanwhile + is responsible for infecting other computers as well. So please perform the steps I posted asap before using your computer for other stuff.

Thanks.
