malwarebytes (and all others...) can't detect a botnet....

Recommended Posts

I suspect new variant of rustock botnet to be invisible to many anti-virus softwares...

i try on 28/03/10 : malwarebytes, eset nod32, online bitdefender, online trendmicro, hijackthis logs normal ... none of them find any virus files ... all is ok they said .... Ok BUT ...

when i use wireshark to see what happens on networks ... when pc startup... it sends encrypted mails, make dns MX queries, and downloads something on a mysterious "forum"...

My only hope now to find this xxx is to use GMER ... i hope it find something (i'll try maybe next weeks...).

For now the only things i see it's a system32/processes.exe (microsoft process) who open/close rapidly and use ports tcp 1035-1040 to send ecnrypted mails..

i think it's an hidden services who cheat antivirus softwares... gmer maybe help ...

I founds theses links with sames captures... and i think it's ruskov botnet...




Here links who talks about ruskov botnet ...



So i post this only to says .... BE CARREFUL AND DON'T TRUST "BLINDLY" YOUR MANY ANTIVIRUS SOFTWARE .... in this cases... they all says "all is fine brother !" !

For now i'am going to always recommend the use of wireshark or another packet sniffing sotware to make SURE you have no virus ... and i hope found this xxxx botnet...

have nice days :rolleyes:

oups sorry the process involved is system32/services.exe and not processes.exe ... anyways a legal microsoft process...

Of course i have .pcap ... but i thinks they don't be helpfull ... this virus may know billions ip adress to contact... and my captures are quite sames with thoses on the link "superuser.com"....

i can send them by email to an admin if it can help detection of this thing... but i don't thinks it help so much...

if you see referer like this in tcp stream ...

POST /download.php?file=66dd7fe9e8b101980ed55b170532fc24 HTTP/1.1

if you see DNS MX queries ... and smtp TCP 25 grey encrypted streams ... and if of course you are not sending emails... surely somethings is going wrong... (and the best is watching at startup of the pc )...

my next move is the use of gmer maybe i found something .... for know i have nothing to send ... all is fine on this pc .... :rolleyes: it's just sends encrypted mails without my consent ....

have nice days ...
