Need help tracking down unknown threat.. trying to reach NukeSploit site

Recommended Posts

We have an XP system that has the SVCHost process trying to reach a foreign IP address of

This site is using the HTTP exploit NukeSploit. SAV 11 is blocking this traffic, but neither MBAM or SAV 11 can detect the files on the machine that are actively trying to reach this site at regular intervals. This particular instance of SVCHost is kicked off at login by an unknown process. Process Explorer gives us the PID of the process that kicks this off, but it is closed by the time we can get a look at it.

Anyone have any suggestions about tracing bootup and login processes to track down the malware on this system. Please do not suggest HiJack-this or similar tools, we have been quite thorough in trying to figure out how this is launching and cannot find any discrepancies in the obvious parts of the registry that those types of tools display. Looking for some more advanced methods at finding this..

I have considered kicking off a command script early in the boot process that dumps the output from tasklist repeatedly to an appended text file in an attempt to catch the PID of the process launching the instance of SVC host....

SVCHost itself appears to be uninfected..
