BitMiner, Ping.exe , Alureon and a whole lotta frustration

Recommended Posts

Wow this has just been crazy. It started with Protect.exe and has spiraled into quite the adventure. For example I couldn't even open the dds.scr URL on the infected system. Running MWB Pro, which finds something new all the time (most often BitMiner sitting in Windows\assembly\temp\kwrd.dll) as does MS Security Essentials (Win32/Trafog!rts, Win32/Alureon.EO, Alureon.EN). Ran TDSS Killer which found something that I deleted, ran Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10 which found a bevy of crap that I deleted (have a report if it will help). My Hosts file is absolutely filled with IPs, running MWB Pro protection continues to detect and stop(?) ping.exe from doing whatever it's doing. Finally Content.IE5 folder in the SysWOW directory is running rampant. I watch files, pics, webpages load and fill a bunch of folders. MWB find and removes the baddies but they continue to come back.

UGH. This is as fascinating as it is terrible.

Appreciate any help!
