Powershell.exe


Recommended Posts

Hi, this is my first post here and I'd love for this to get resolved without me having to format my whole system again. I'm pretty sure (like 94%) that my system has been infected (not a false positive) and I'm quite sure it's a mining virus.

And it blocks me from posting so I'll try to post this first and then add the rest as a comment. I'm so done with all this bullshit.

Hello  and  :welcome:     @TheJAXi

 

My screen name is AdvancedSetup and I will assist you with your system issues.
 

Let's keep these principles as we proceed. Make sure to read the entire post below first.

  • Please follow all steps in the provided order and post back all requested logs
  • Please attach all log files to your post, unless otherwise requested
  • Temporarily disable your antivirus or other security software first. Make sure to turn it back on once the scans have been completed.
  • Temporarily disable Microsoft SmartScreen to download the software below if needed. Make sure to turn it back on once the scans are completed.
  • Searching, detecting, and removing malware isn't instantaneous and there is no guarantee to repair every system.
  • Before we start, please make sure that you have an external backup, not connected to this system, of all private data.
  • Do not run online games while the case is ongoing. Do not do any free-wheeling or risky web-surfing.
  • Only run the tools I guide you to use. Please don't run any other scans, download, install or uninstall any programs while I'm working with you.
  • Cracked, Hacked, or Pirated programs are not only illegal but also can make a computer a malware victim. Having such programs installed is the easiest way to get infected. It is the leading cause of ransomware encryption. It is at times also a big source of current Trojan infections. If there are any on the system you should uninstall them before we proceed.
  • Please be patient and stick with me until I give you the "all clear". We don't want to waste your time, please don't waste ours.
  • If your system is running Discord, please be sure to Exit it while this case is ongoing.

 

[ 1 ]

Please go to Control Panel, Programs, Programs and Features and uninstall the following

Java(TM) 7 Update 3 (64-bit)
Java(TM) SE Development Kit 19.0.1 (64-bit)


[ 2 ]

Then disable all Torrent programs from running for now.

Please run the following fix

Once the fix has been completed, please attach the file FIXLOG.TXT to your next reply

Farbar program location:    C:\Users\jaakk\Downloads\FRSTEnglish.exe

 

Please download the attached fixlist.txt file and save it to C:\Users\jaakk\Downloads\
NOTE. It's important that both files, C:\Users\jaakk\Downloads\FRSTEnglish.exe, and fixlist.txt are in the same location or the fix will not work.

Please make sure you disable any real-time antivirus or security software before running this script. Once completed, make sure you re-enable it.

NOTICE: This script was written specifically for this user, for use on this particular machine. Running this on another machine may cause damage to your operating system that cannot be undone.

Run the Farbar program with Admin rights.  C:\Users\jaakk\Downloads\FRSTEnglish.exe  Then click on the FIX button and wait for the clean process to complete.
If the tool needs a restart please make sure you let the system restart normally and let the tool complete its run after restart.
The tool will make a log named (Fixlog.txt) in the folder C:\Users\jaakk\Downloads   Please attach that log on your next reply

 

NOTE-1:  This fix will run a scan to check that all Microsoft operating system files are valid and not corrupt and attempt to correct any invalid files. It will also run a disk check on the restart to ensure disk integrity. Depending on the speed of your computer this fix may take 30 minutes or more.

NOTE-2: As part of this fix all temporary files will be removed. If you have any open web pages that have not been bookmarked please make sure you bookmark them now as all open applications will be automatically closed. Also, make sure you know the passwords for all websites as cookies will also be removed. The use of an external password manager is highly recommended instead of using your browser to store passwords.

NOTE-3: As part of this fix it will also reset the network to default settings including the firewall. If you have custom firewall rules you need to save please export or save them first before running this fix.

The following directories are emptied:

  • Windows Temp
  • Users Temp folders
  • Edge, IE, FF, Chrome, and Opera caches, HTML5 storages, Cookies and History
  • Recently opened files cache
  • Discord cache
  • Java cache
  • Steam HTML cache
  • Explorer thumbnail and icon cache
  • BITS transfer queue (qmgr*.dat files)
  • Recycle Bin

Important: items are permanently deleted. They are not moved to quarantine. If you have any questions or concerns please ask before running this fix.

The system will be rebooted after the fix has run.

Thanks

Few things. 1. Why do I have to uninstall my Java dev kits? They have nothing to do with anything & I need them for work. 2. I don't have any torrent programs running 3. Yes, except for the last one, which is the stupid docs extension I tried to tell you about, but you blocked me from posting. It's part of the virus. I keep deleting it and it comes back. 4. Yes I want, I obviously know how to run my browser & system.

 

5. What else does that script do? I have my computer set-up specifically and it has a lot of custom tweaks and such. I'd rather not it cancel out all the work I've done. If it just clears temp files why can't I do that myself? My system files aren't corrupted, but I have made some specific changes. From theming, custom block stuff, firewall stuff, regedit stuff, gpedit stuff and some replacements on core files. I do not want to lose those as it takes days to set them up again. I need to be working on Sunday ~5.50AM sharp. 

 

I'm at the moment running a new scan with different "anti-malware" scanner. I obviously don't trust any of this crap software, and I'll wipe them all out afterwards (even yours).

 

Also. It seems that I'm not the only one with this problem. Can you permit me to post the whole thing about my problem (as it says it's spam and doesn't allow me to, which it ain't). I also got a link with some information (not sure how reliable).

That is my recommendation to clean the computer. You're welcome to go elsewhere and ask for assistance. We'd love to help you but we clean how we feel things should be cleaned but obviously it's your computer, so your choice on how you clean it.

Just read through a bit of the script. It seems to delete regedit values. Those task ones seem suspicious (which I also mentioned in the post that "you" didn't allow me to post). Nothing else on my PC is infected / isn't a false positive than the weird powershell stuff. Is there a way to look into those weird powershell scripts? One of them seems to be from Huion (which probably is a false positive) and I'd like not to remove those. Can I talk to you in DMs? Does it allow posting the text I tried to post here before?

There is nothing in the fix that is going to break your computer. If you truly cannot deal with losing some cookies and cache in your browsers than I'd suggest you invest in continuous backup as many things could come along (just like these powershell and vb script tasks) that break your browsers and settings.

I have had hundreds of users run very similar clean up scripts and not a single one has broken the computer.

The Java Development Kit is up to date but the other is way out of date. Out of date Java can be the one that allowed this to happen as it is exploitable.

Here's everything. Those all tasks that I posted photos of are gone with the quarantine. It seems that they were all flagged as viruses. The image from Malwarebytes is the weird spam I was talking about. And uhm. I had a few more flagged ones in the scan, but I ignored them as I'm pretty sure they're just from cracks (which are 150% safe, been using only from trusted source, I know nothin is sure but I trust them more than I trust your program.) I think the "virus" is from one of my projects more likely than any software.

I don't know the exact specific launch mechanism for the Google Docs extension reinstalling. If you look at other posts on the forums or the web different clean up solutions have been suggested. Most include the type of clean up I've suggested.

You don't trust us or our program so again I don't really have a solution for you except to remove the tasks as you have and research it more if it continues.

Those trojan.tasker.generic and trojan.tasker.decoder ones are the weird stuff. Rest are pretty much just KMS & some plugins to software (like C4D). I'll just wait & see. Hopefully nothing too important was lost & hopefully I'm at least 10% cleaner than when I started. Hopefully someone adds this "virus" to their database so it'll get caught quicker. Wouldn't have noticed it if I hadn't had checked the weird outgoing connections through my router interface & then through MalwareBytes. I linked the weird blog about the trojan, not sure if it's the same as I don't have any "commander" programs or that'd control everything. Just those tasks. Might've been already wiped out by Windows Defender / myself and all that was left was those scripts.

And one more thing, I meant no bad with the trust thing. I just don't trust antiviruses. I get why people use them, but I just personally stay away. But in this case a scanner is good and Malwarebytes is the only one after Windows defender that I "trust". I obviously don't like Microsoft either and mostly disable their defender too (or at least did when still had my VM's running, now baremetal I need somethin to keep a watch, but mostly I do that by keeping a track on what I install/use/download and on my traffic on my router).

 

Sorry for all the trouble. I'll finish this scan and update this post one more time if it finds anything. Also, in your fix file you had Wellbia thing highlighted. I'm aware that it's not "good" to have these anti-cheats as they're literal spyware but I need it to play some games. This PC only has few games & I have a business laptop for important stuff. Just don't like using Windows at all. Back with Linux I could just wipe everything and make a new VM any time. It felt so good. I might even go back to Linux at some point. Already missing it. 

 

Also uhm. I'll try to do the tasks in your fix file myself. Like clearing out all caches & stuff. I usually do that kinda stuff once a month/once every 3-6 months. But might make a deep one now. Thanks for the file & everything.

SecurityCheck by glax24              

I would like you to run a tool named SecurityCheck to inquire about the current security update status of some applications.

  • Download SecurityCheck by glax24: https://tools.safezone.cc/glax24/SecurityCheck/SecurityCheck.exe
  • If Microsoft SmartScreen blocks the download, click through to save the file
  • This tool is safe.   Smartscreen is overly sensitive.
  • If SmartScreen blocks the file from running click on More info and Run anyway
  • Right-click  with your mouse on the Securitycheck.exe  and select "Run as administrator"  and reply YES to allow to run & go forward
  • Wait for the scan to finish. It will open a text file named SecurityCheck.txt Close the file.  Attach it with your next reply.
  • You can find this file in a folder called SecurityCheck, C:\SecurityCheck\SecurityCheck.txt

I'm not sure how this quoting thing works, but I'm running it now. Also uhm. I have a script like that in my task scheduler with those locations and few extra ones including my temp drive. Mine looks a bit different but I think it does the same thing (deletes files older than 30 days and then lists them to a file for me to keep date on what it deletes)
