The return of Whitesmoke virus


Recommended Posts

Previously, thanks to the heroic efforts of moderator LDTate, I was able to defeat the Whitesmoke virus on my machine. Tonight, about two weeks later, I came home and the computer was on and the disk drive grinding...my son had been playing a game, I think one he found on a game hub website. Sure enough, the Whitesmoke virus had returned!

I got the notice claiming the Whietesmoke program had been installed on my computer (and asking for my email address, which of course I did not give). I rebooted in safe mode, and ran Kaspersky rootkill off an emergency disk I'd prepared last time. Then I rebooted and used the control panel add/remove programs to remove Whitesmoke translator. Then I ran Malwarebytes (only had time for the quick scan), which found 677 infected files! Almost all of the files had whitesmoke in the name. I directed the program to quarantine and remove the files, and got a message said it was successful, although not for all files. I then rebooted.

One more thing. Before I removed all these infected files I noticed that, on my internet explorer, there was a Bing toolbar that was not there before...once I got rid of the infected files, the Bing toolbar left with it.

So now...all seems quiet..."too quiet" as they say in the movies. I seem to have regain control over my computer -- the hard drive has even gone quiet -- but I'm worried there are still nasty things waiting to attack. For the time being, I've been able to post this message, which is better than where we were at an hour and a half ago.

I'd be very grateful for any help. And I'm installing Operating System 2.0 on my son so that he will never again go to any but the specific websites I allow him on!

Thanks!

I would suggest you purchase MalwareBytes Pro to help prevent those.

Post a DDS log scan and I'll have a look.

Please download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links and save it to your desktop.

[*]Disable any script blocking protection (How to Disable your Security Programs)

[*]Double click DDS icon to run the tool (may take up to 3 minutes to run)

[*]When done, DDS.txt will open.

[*]After a few moments, attach.txt will open in a second window.

[*]Save both reports to your desktop.

---------------------------------------------------

  • Post the contents of the DDS.txt report in your next reply
  • Attach the Attach.txt report to your post by scroling down to the Attachments area and then clicking Browse. Browse to where you saved the file, and click Open and then click UPLOAD.

LDTate -- [sigh of relief] Thanks SO much for replying. I feel hopeful already!

And...yes, by all means, as soon as my computer is clean, it's Malwarebytes Pro for me!

Things here are still calm, cool, and collected. The disk drive may be whirring a little more than usual, but not that incessant cranking that sounds to me like the epochal war between good and evil! So I was able to log onto the internet like a regular human being, things took a little longer maybe but nothing crazy.

I have followed your instructions. I have posted below the first DDS log scan. I will attach the one that said "attach."

I can't close without saying one more time -- THANK YOU!!

Here's the first log:

Greetings from a very snowy New York!

I have followed your instructions. Surprise number one was, when I went to uncheck the "proxy server for your LAN" box...it was already un-checked. I toggled it back and forth just to make sure I wasn't seeing things...anyway, it's unchecked.

Everything happened just as you predicted with the fixme.bat file (DOS screen flashed). The surprise here was, when I was done, I found on my desktop a notebook file titled "resetlog." Don't know if that has anything to do with the fixme.bat file, or just coincidence...anyway, I HAVE NOT attached it but I still have it saved in case you want to see it.

Then...I updated Malwarebytes, and that went just fine. I ran a quick scan, and it found zero infected items. I HAVE NOT attached the log, but again I have saved it in case you want to see it.

Everything remains quiet...no scarey grinding of the hard drive, no sight of whitesmoke...although there was one anomaly this morning, which was that it took forever for internet explorer to find its way to connect to my homepage (which is Yahoo), but just now, when I rebooted, it went more quickly.

Can't close without thanking you again for all of your help...you can't imagine what a relief it is. I tell my wife and son about everything you've done to help us -- you're a genuine family hero!

Thanks once more for the speedy response.

Things here remain calm, everything seems to be working fine but for the unusually long time it takes to get to my home page (Yahoo) when I boot internet explorer...nothing I can't live with!

As per your instructions, I turned off the virus scan and firewall protection, and ran DDS. Below is the first notepad scan log; I have attached the second one as a txt. file.

looks like you have combofix already..

Run it like this and post the results.

  • Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools. Note: If you are having difficulty properly disabling your protective programs, or are unsure as to what programs need to be disabled, please refer to the information available through this link : Protective Programs
  • Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.
    Notes: Combofix will run without the Recovery Console installed. Skip the Recovery Console part if you're running Vista or Windows 7.
    Note: If you have SP3, use the SP2 package.
    If Vista or Windows 7, skip the Recovery Console part
  • As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.
  • Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.

**Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.

RC1.png

Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:

RC2-1.png

Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.

When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt using Copy / Paste in your next reply.

Notes:

1.Do not mouse-click Combofix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.

2. ComboFix may reset a number of Internet Explorer's settings, including making I-E the default browser.

3. Combofix prevents autorun of ALL CD, floppy and USB devices to assist with malware removal & increase security. If this is an issue or makes it difficult for you -- please tell your helper.

4. CF disconnects your machine from the internet. The connection is automatically restored before CF completes its run. If CF runs into difficulty and terminates prematurely, the connection can be manually restored by restarting your machine.

Give it atleast 20-30 minutes to finish if needed.

Please do not attach the scan results from Combofx. Use copy/paste.

Also please describe how your computer behaves at the moment.

Thanks for your advice. This time you are rewarded by a reply that is, unfortunately, not nearly so dull as my last few!

Problem one was, I kept turning off my firewall protection, and combofix kept reporting it was on. And sure enough it was. So I'd turn it back off, and it would immediately come back on. But you'd be proud of me, I think I figured out the problem. I had foolishly selected the McAfee option to turn off the firewall for one-half hour. I remembered that combofix messes with the internal clock. So the program must have figured it was time to turn it back on...finally I got it off for good.

Problem number two: My internet explorer kept not recognizing addresses. This, I think, was my own fault. I wanted to put Malwarebytes on my "favorites" list, but my favorites list was nowhere to be found...so I checked "menu bar," and the menu bar came back, and so did the "favorites" option, but so, also, alas, did the problems with the browser. I fixed this by going to the control panel, internet options, and restoring default settings. So I'm learning, I'm learning (although I am curious if I will ever be able to put the menu bar back up without inviting trouble...). Anyway, I was able to get back up on ie, which I am using now to post this reply.

Problem number three: As I ran combofix, Windows kept telling me it was shutting down a program...except the program it was shutting down was internet explorer, which (I thought) wasn't running. Was this because the virus was trying to activate ie to download some programs? Or was it because I had simply left my cable wire plugged to my modem (previously, when running combofix, I had pulled that wire, because YOU CAN NEVER BE TOO SURE!). Anyway, I pulled the wire, and after an eternity...I got the following combofix log. I attach it, once again with my eternal thanks:

looks like you have combofix already..

Run it like this and post the results.

  • Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools. Note: If you are having difficulty properly disabling your protective programs, or are unsure as to what programs need to be disabled, please refer to the information available through this link : Protective Programs
  • Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.
    Notes: Combofix will run without the Recovery Console installed. Skip the Recovery Console part if you're running Vista or Windows 7.
    Note: If you have SP3, use the SP2 package.
    If Vista or Windows 7, skip the Recovery Console part
  • As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.
  • Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.

**Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.

Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:

RC2-1.png

Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.

When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt using Copy / Paste in your next reply.

Notes:

1.Do not mouse-click Combofix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.

2. ComboFix may reset a number of Internet Explorer's settings, including making I-E the default browser.

3. Combofix prevents autorun of ALL CD, floppy and USB devices to assist with malware removal & increase security. If this is an issue or makes it difficult for you -- please tell your helper.

4. CF disconnects your machine from the internet. The connection is automatically restored before CF completes its run. If CF runs into difficulty and terminates prematurely, the connection can be manually restored by restarting your machine.

Give it atleast 20-30 minutes to finish if needed.

Please do not attach the scan results from Combofx. Use copy/paste.

Also please describe how your computer behaves at the moment.

(Addendum to last reply): I forgot to add one more thing. After the combofix log popped up, McAfee notified me "New internet connection detected -- your PC is connected to a new network" It asked me whether I wanted to assign public, home, or work sercurity levels to it. It isted a gateway number and a mask number. Could this be simply that I had replugged the cable back to the cable modem? Or is this a remote computer trying to control mine?

I have no idea what the IP and gateway is. Is it from your ISP provider?

You might want to write down the numbers and contact your ISP.

Thanks!

Don't know if you saw the message below (reporting the results of my running combofix), which I posted just before the one to which you responded. It was a dramatic night last night in my computer room! Here's the recap:

Thanks for your advice. This time you are rewarded by a reply that is, unfortunately, not nearly so dull as my last few!

Problem one was, I kept turning off my firewall protection, and combofix kept reporting it was on. And sure enough it was. So I'd turn it back off, and it would immediately come back on. But you'd be proud of me, I think I figured out the problem. I had foolishly selected the McAfee option to turn off the firewall for one-half hour. I remembered that combofix messes with the internal clock. So the program must have figured it was time to turn it back on...finally I got it off for good.

Problem number two: My internet explorer kept not recognizing addresses. This, I think, was my own fault. I wanted to put Malwarebytes on my "favorites" list, but my favorites list was nowhere to be found...so I checked "menu bar," and the menu bar came back, and so did the "favorites" option, but so, also, alas, did the problems with the browser. I fixed this by going to the control panel, internet options, and restoring default settings. So I'm learning, I'm learning (although I am curious if I will ever be able to put the menu bar back up without inviting trouble...). Anyway, I was able to get back up on ie, which I am using now to post this reply.

Problem number three: As I ran combofix, Windows kept telling me it was shutting down a program...except the program it was shutting down was internet explorer, which (I thought) wasn't running. Was this because the virus was trying to activate ie to download some programs? Or was it because I had simply left my cable wire plugged to my modem (previously, when running combofix, I had pulled that wire, because YOU CAN NEVER BE TOO SURE!). Anyway, I pulled the wire, and after an eternity...I got the following combofix log. I attach it, once again with my eternal thanks:

I have no idea what the IP and gateway is. Is it from your ISP provider?

You might want to write down the numbers and contact your ISP.

Problem number three: As I ran combofix, Windows kept telling me it was shutting down a program...except the program it was shutting down was internet explorer, which (I thought) wasn't running. Was this because the virus was trying to activate ie to download some programs? Or was it because I had simply left my cable wire plugged to my modem (previously, when running combofix, I had pulled that wire, because YOU CAN NEVER BE TOO SURE!). Anyway, I pulled the wire, and after an eternity...I got the following combofix log. I attach it, once again with my eternal thanks:
When CF runs it likes to check to see if there's a update, so that would be my guess.

So does that mean...I'm all done? Virus vanquished?

If so...eternal gratitude, and promises that I shall be of the highest vigilance in preventing future infections!

I've learned a lot, and you have my thanks.

The following will implement some cleanup procedures as well as reset System Restore points:

For XP:

  • Click START run
  • Now type ComboFix /Uninstall in the runbox and click OK. Note the space between the X and the U, it needs to be there.

For Vista / Windows 7

  • Click START Search
  • Now type ComboFix /Uninstall in the runbox and click OK. Note the space between the X and the U, it needs to be there.

If you used DeFogger

To re-enable your Emulation drivers, double click DeFogger to run the tool.

  • The application window will appear
  • Click the Re-enable button to re-enable your CD Emulation drivers
  • Click Yes to continue
  • A 'Finished!' message will appear
  • Click OK
  • DeFogger will now ask to reboot the machine - click OK

IMPORTANT! If you receive an error message while running DeFogger, please post the log defogger_enable which will appear on your desktop.

Your Emulation drivers are now re-enabled.

Here's my usual all clean post

To be on the safe side, I would also change all my passwords.

This infection appears to have been cleaned, but as the malware could be configured to run any program a remote attacker requires, it's impossible to be 100% sure that any machine is clean.

Log looks good :)

  • Make your Internet Explorer more secure - This can be done by following these simple instructions:
    1. From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
    2. Click once on the Security tab
    3. Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
    4. Click once on the Custom Level button.
    5. Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
    6. Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
    7. Change the Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable
    8. Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt
    9. Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt
    10. Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt
    11. When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
    12. If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
    13. Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.

    [*]Update your AntiVirus Software - It is imperative that you update your Antivirus software at least once a week

    (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your antivirus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.

    [*]Use a Firewall - I can not stress how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer.

    Without a firewall your computer is succeptible to being hacked and taken over.

    I am very serious about this and see it happen almost every day with my clients.

    Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly.

    [*] JAVA Click this link and click on the Free JAVA Download

    [*]Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit http://www.windowsupdate.com regularly.

    This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer.

    If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site

    until there are no more critical updates.

Only run one Anti-Virus and Firewall program.

Thank you so much. There are few sights in this world more welcome than your thumbs-up icon! I am very grateful.

Yesterday morning on my commuter train, a fellow had forgotten his wallet, and the lady next to him paid his fare and told him, "pay it forward." She explained that someone had once done the same good deed for her. So I hope somehow to "pay forward" the very kind and capable help you have so patiently given me.

Be assured that I have executed each of the recommendations in your "all clear" message. And I'm about to install Malewarebytes Pro.

Hope you won't be seeing me back on this particular board!

Thanks again -

Unclepete
