TDSS Infection


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

My mother's computer seems to have been infected with TDSS. I told her to follow the instructions on this page: http://community.norton.com/t5/Norton-Inte...SServ/m-p/46674 and run SDFix. She never was able to find the drivers in step 1 but she went through the instructions twice and after doing, programs that used to not open (like symantec) would now work. So she ran symantec antivirus, malwarebytes and super antispyware. Symantec was unhelpful in deleting anything but the other two programs found and deleted many different issues she said; however, she ran them multiple times and each time they would find something new. She also got symantec endpoint and installed ran that and that did a little better than her older symantec program The main issue she's having now is certain sites are being blocked/redirected and the malware programs continue to find new issues. Below is the dds.txt contents and I've attached ark.txt and attach.txt.

My first question is, is there anything we can do from here? Also, she's thinking of formatting and installing windows 7, would this be any better? And finally, if in the end she does reformat and goes back to XP or gets Windows 7, should she change all of her passwords on sites, get new credit cards, etc. or is that taking it too far? She's also wary because she has a few doc files on her comp with passwords, credit card numbers, maybe even SSN's...

Thanks a bunch for any help,

It would the safest in the long term to wipe the HD and install Windows as a fresh (new) install, unless your mom has a recent backup from before this current infection. Find out if she has that backup.

It would be a very good idea for her to change all her login passwords for online accounts -using a clean pc / not this one- You never know what co-infectors came with or after TDSS.

Thanks Maurice for the quick reply.

I'll definitely let her know to format and install a new os -- I set up cobian to backup her user directory to another drive in the computer but it's not a full mirror so the format would be the best option -- the backups have been running since she got the rootkit, however, so do you think this would be an issue when I format the C: and move her documents, pics etc. back to the C: from the E:?

As for the logins, I let her know to change those all today from another computer -- is that enough? Should she be worried about any of the other information in her doc files?

Thanks again,

You mom should be on the lookout for possible theft of her credit card & bank information if they were used online or even if she stored her numbers in a document or other. It's up to her if she wishes to advise her CC companies & bank that the accounts may have been compromised. Certainly she should really watch her card & bank statements.

If you only have a partial backup, then you must be extremely carefull about how & when you copy back documents.

The Windows o.s. must be re-installed first, an up-to-date antvirus setup next, and next a full visit to Windows Updates.

Any old documents & files restored must first be thoroughly scanned by the antivirus program.

Keep this handy for fresh install of Windows:

Make sure you have at hand the Windows XP CD and also, a fresh new copy of your antivirus that is downloaded from a clean pc and saved on transportable-media (CD-DVD or clean thumb drive).

When you are at point of re-installing o.s., I'd recommend you have the pc disconnected from internet until after the o.s. is installed, plus the antivirus is fully setup and running.

See Windows XP Clean Installation - Partitioning and Formatting using Windows XP CD by Ramesh Srinivasan, MS-MVP

Also Clean Install Windows by Michael Stevens, MS-MVP

I would urge you to follow the directions very carefully.

You will loose your documents so if you have some to save, offload them to a separate offline media. And later on insure you do a full scan of them by running your antivirus.
