Something fishy

Recommended Posts

I've got some experience in cleaning infections for family members etc, but I'm outa my depth here :)

In essence, MSE has popped up 3 detected JS exploits (Exploit:JS/Blacole.A) and some other stuff over the past couple of days. In addition, I've seen several Windows error boxes for something like mshtml.dll

There are a few JS script engine errors in event viewer (I suspect these are related, although it doesn't give any modules).

Have run scans with MSE which detected several more JS exploits in the tempoary internet files, and MBAM which detected this:

e:\Users\christopher\AppData\Local\Temp\pws_cdk.bss (Stolen.Data) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.
e:\Users\christopher\AppData\Local\Temp\pws_mail.bss (Stolen.Data) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.
e:\Users\christopher\AppData\Local\Temp\pws_mess.bss (Stolen.Data) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.
e:\Users\christopher\AppData\Roaming\srhost.exe (Trojan.Dropper) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

Not convinced I'm clean, could someone take a look please?

Logs attached.

Hi and welcome to Malwarebytes.

Stolen.Data detections mean those files contain information which may include passwords or other sensitive information.

Please update MBAM, run a Quick Scan, and post its log.

Don't attach any logs unless otherwise specified.

Next, please visit this webpage for instructions for running ComboFix:


  • When the tool is finished, it will produce a report for you.
  • Please post the contents of C:\ComboFix.txt along with a new DDS log so we may continue cleaning the system.
