Infected Registry Key or something else?

Recommended Posts


I've been a long time user of MalwareBytes and it's saved me on numerous occasions. This time though after doing full scans, quick scans, etc. and coming up clean, this came up:

Registry Keys Infected:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\Root\LEGACY_STISVC32 (Trojan.Tracur) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

I scan at startup, that registry key is found and the above action is taken. I reboot and it's gone. However when I shutdown and startup later it's back. The whole process ends up repeating.

I've been hunting down what it may be related to & so far the only thing close is W32/Agobot-TX worm. None of the exe.'s or startup issues related to that are on my system though.

Doing a search online for the exact key bring up another users log file oddly enough but little else, can't figure out if this may be a false positive or something deeper?

Everything else comes up clean, virus scans, etc.

Early in the weekend my system did get hit with something but my security software kicked in to prevent any real damage. The only issue was I did have to manually delete the malicious exe's AFTER the scans (easy enough to find since they all had the same DATE CREATED timestamp). Subsequent full system scans however have proved clean & no threats. (the log for this event is mbam-log-2011-06-18 (16-46-29)
