Driverpack-17 malicious code, wasn't cleared up by MB


Recommended Posts

Hi, I've installed new system and I'm struggling with drivers, so I was stupid and  downloaded a program named DriverPack Solution 17 ,because someone on forum advised it (and because I was so stupid). After some time I realised that program isn't very helpfull and it has problems installing any driver, so I went to Google for solutions and I found that this program is malicious.  Then I just deleted an exe file ( this program didnt have any instalation process, so I thought it's just one-file-program).

And some time later after I rebooted computer prior to installing one driver, something unexpected and shocking happened:

Firstly at the start appeared cmd.exe window with 3 second countdown. I ignored it, because I thought it's a part of driver instalation process. But 5 minutes later window with Driverpack-17 icon appeared out of nowhere and it was in the middle of installation ! It was installing some fishy distribution of Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable - fishy, because there was a lot of strings in arabic or hindu and lots of strange characters passing in the log of installation (I regret I didn't make a screenshot,because you can't image something more virus-like). There was no way to stop it, to cancel the process, killing it by Process Manager didnt work. And at the end when it finished massage in German popped up !



I freaked out and restored system to the last restore point (just before the reboot). I installed Malwarebyte and it deleted C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\DPRsu\ and many register entries.

However it didn't remove everything. Everytime I start the system then that litte cmd.exe shows up, acompanied with error massage that "C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\DPRsu\PROGRAMS\DotNet.exe" cannot be found...

I've checked details in Process Explorer and it seems that cmd.exe is started by svchost with parameters:

/c start /min cmd /c bitsadmin /complete drp_bits_job && timeout 3 && start "" "C:\Users\User\AppData\Roaming\DRPsu\PROGRAMS\DotNet.exe"  


Does it mean my svchost is infected? Malwarebyte didn't even detect that issues. How to stop that script from executing at the start of system ? Is it still dangerous or it's just a leftover?
