Poprock b.exe virus, blocking McAfee & other anti-viral/malware progs

Post by Demosthenes on Wed Sep 30, 2009 7:39 pm

As many others apparently have, I've become infected with this nasty, nasty little virus. Unfortunately, I tried browsing the web for advice before finding this place, and I did a little tinkering myself before realizing what and how tenacious the problem was. I may have made things all screwy for you guys, because I'm apparently in way over my head... please bear with me, and thanks in advance for any help you can give!

When I tried using HijackThis, it started the scan but immediately shut down before writing a log file for me to save. It now blocks HijackThis as well; I double-click and it does absoƖute nothing. This is also happening with my web browser. Spybot S&D and MBAM both hang when I start them up; I'm sure they'd behave similarly if I renamed the files, as that seems to be a hallmark of this virus.

McAfee opens, and in fact may have some useful information; here's a copy of the registry modification log for the last day. I'm fairly certain that the lower entry is when I was infected.

Rule type: Registry
Process: C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe
Process description: Internet Explorer
Process publisher: Microsoft Corporation
Process version: 6.00.2900.5512 (xpsp.080413-2015) \S- 1-5-21-2952863008219731660-4116829282-1005\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar\WebBrowser\{OE5CBF21-D1SF-11D0-8301-00AA005B4383} \CLSID\{OE5CBF21-D1SF-11D0-8301-00AA005B4383} \InProcServer32C:\WINDOWS\system32\shell32.dll

Rule type: Registry
Process: C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Temp\b.exe \S- 1-5-21-2952863008219731660-4116829282-1005\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\PopRockC:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Temp\b.exe

I already went into safe mode and deleted a.exe, b.exe, c.exe, d.exe, e.exe, and f.exe from the above directory (all were the same size, 147k, with the same creaton/modification date), and also the following from the registry:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\NordBull
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\poprock
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\XML
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\poprock
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar\WebBrowser\{OE5CBF21-D1SF-11D0-8301-00AA005B4383}
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{OE5CBF21-D1SF-11D0-8301-00AA005B4383}

According to another post I found regarding what appears to be the same virus, I should now be running SystemLook and reporting the results, but I'll wait on word from you guys before I accidentally screw myself further.

As I said, thanks in advance; I'm fairly stumped, and was contemplating whether to just format and get it over with.

Please download the current version of HijackThis from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

  • Double click and run the installer.
  • It will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis\hijackthis.exe
  • After installing, you should get the user agreement, press accept and Hijack This will run.
  • Select Do a system scan and save a log file. This will open a notepad file of everything Hijack This found, copy and paste it back here.

Done. It begins a scan, then closes without outputting anything. I try to start it up again, and it gives the error message "Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item." I'm on an administrator account. I've tried renaming the HijackThis executable to winlogon.exe as suggested in [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] with no luck. Should I continue with the advice you've provided this other lost soul by running SystemLook?

Hello.
Yep, that's the next step.

1. Copy all the text contained in the code box below to your Clipboard by highlighting it and pressing (Ctrl+CCrying


Files to delete:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\eventlog.dll

Note: the above code was created specifically for this user. If you are not this user, do NOT follow these directions as they could damage the workings of your system.


2. Now, start The Avenger program by clicking on its icon on your desktop.

  • Under "Input script here:", paste in the script from the quote box above.
  • Leave the ticked box "Scan for rootkit" ticked.
  • Then tick "Disable any rootkits found"
  • Now click on the Execute to begin execution of the script.
  • Answer "Yes" twice when prompted.

    The Avenger will automatically do the following:

  • It will Restart your computer.
  • On reboot, it will briefly open a black command window on your desktop, this is normal.
  • After the restart, it creates a log file that should open with the results of Avengerís actions. This log file will be located at C:\avenger.txt
  • The Avenger will also have backed up all the files, etc., that you asked it to delete, and will have zipped them and moved the zip archives to C:\avenger\backup.zip.
3. Please copy/paste the content of c:\avenger.txt into your reply.

Re: Poprock b.exe virus, blocking McAfee & other anti-viral/malware progs

Hello.

  • Download combofix from here
    [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
    [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

    1. If you are using Firefox, make sure that your download settings are as follows:

    * Tools->Options->Main tab
    * Set to "Always ask me where to Save the files".

    2. During the download, rename Combofix to Combo-Fix as follows:





    3. It is important you rename Combofix during the download, but not after.
    4. Please do not rename Combofix to other names, but only to the one indicated.
    5. Close any open browsers.
    6. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.

  • We need to disable your local AV (Anti-virus) before running Combofix.
  • See [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] for how to disable your AV.
  • Double click on ComboFix.exe.
  • Follow the prompts. NOTE:
  • ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed.
    ***It's strongly recommended to have the Recovery Console installed before doing any malware removal.***

    **Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will automatically proceed with its scan.


  • The Recovery Console provides a recovery/repair mode should a problem occur during a Combofix run.



  • Allow ComboFix to download the Recovery Console.
  • Accept the End-User License Agreement.
  • The Recovery Console will be installed.
  • You will then get this next prompt that asks if you want to continue the malware scan, select yes



  • Allow combofix to run
  • Post C:\combofix.txt back here.

    Note:
    Do not mouseclick combofix's window whilst it's running. That may cause it to stall.

Re: Poprock b.exe virus, blocking McAfee & other anti-viral/malware progs

Post by Belahzur on Sun Oct 04, 2009 2:47 pm

Click Start > Run and copy/paste the following bolded text into the Run box and click OK:

ComboFix /u



This will also reset your restore points.

How is the machine running now?

Re: Poprock b.exe virus, blocking McAfee & other anti-viral/malware progs

Post by Demosthenes on Sun Oct 04, 2009 4:33 pm

Hmm... I tried that, but didn't think to disable McAfee beforehand, and I'm getting tons of error messages. First, McAfee popped up a Potentially Unwanted Program alert: name Tool-NirCmd, location C:\32788P22FWJFW\n.pif. Then I got repetitive error messages saying that I didn't have access to the specified file name or path, and finally a message from ComboFix saying that the contents of ComboFix may have been compromised, and I may be infected with a file patching virus "Virut". Hopefully this is just because I forgot to disable McAfee, and I should disable it and repeat this last step...? Or is this virus actually still around?

Re: Poprock b.exe virus, blocking McAfee & other anti-viral/malware progs

Post by Belahzur on Sun Oct 04, 2009 10:51 pm

I'm afraid I have bad news.

Your system is infected with a polymorphic file infector called Virut. Virut is capable of infecting all the machine's executable files (.exe) and screensaver files (.scr). However, the problem is that the virus has a number of bugs in its code, and as a result, it may misinfect a proportion of executable files and therefore, the files are corrupted beyond repair. As of now, security experts suggest that a format and clean install, or destructive recovery if you have an OEM recovery partition, is the best way to clean the infection and it is the best and safest way to return the machine to its normal working state.

Backup all your documents and important items (personal data, work documents, etc) only. DO NOT backup any executable files (softwares) and screensavers (*.scr). It attempts to infect any accessed .exe or .scr files by appending itself to the executable.

Also, avoid backing up compressed files (zip/cab/rar) files that have .exe or .scr files inside them. Virut can penetrate and infect .exe files inside compressed files too.

Recent variants also modify htm, html, asp and php files.

Do not back up to another machine, as it may become compromised. Burn to DVD/CD, or to an external drive which has nothing else on it, and which you can format should it happen to become infected from the backups.

Post by Demosthenes on Wed Oct 07, 2009 1:12 pm

Gah. I didn't notice this reply for several days, and was starting to wonder what the deal was. I think I'd rather have had no reply, no offense to you; this is definitely not welcome news. Oh well, before I get on with the business of backing-up and reformatting, a few more questions for you...

  • I'm assuming that if I don't know what an OEM recovery partition is, it doesn't apply to me. Is this correct, that I probably don't have one and can't take advantage of this option?

  • I have another computer connected to this one via LAN, and before I realized what I was dealing with I copied several directories over for backup. I expect the executable files in those directories were compromised; is it possible for them to have had any effect on the other computer, if they were merely stored on that computer & never accessed?

  • I have some older programs that I'll have extreme difficulty finding to re-install. Is there a way to check and possibly disinfect only these? nȯne of them are integral to system function, mainly just games in fact, but I'd be disappointed to lose them forever.

  • On the same note, is it possible for the virus to infect anything else besides .exe and .scr files? The blog page you directed me to suggested that HTML and PHP files could be compromised, but were quite easy to clean; have mine already been cleaned, or should I avoid backing those up as well?

  • You also mentioned archives; are all archives vulnerable, or merely the executable files within those archives? Will any archive with an executable file be compromised in itself, or will deleting the executables within my archives help?

  • Is there any potential for this virus to replicate in document files, mp3s, videos, saved game files, etc., and if so do I have any recourse for them?


Again, thanks for all your help; despite the end result being slightly less than ideal, I really appreciate it. Smile

Hello.

I'll try to answer your quests now.

I'm assuming that if I don't know what an OEM recovery partition is, it doesn't apply to me. Is this correct, that I probably don't have one and can't take advantage of this option?

Not really, depends who the machine was made by, was/is it Dell?

I have another computer connected to this one via LAN, and before I realized what I was dealing with I copied several directories over for backup. I expect the executable files in those directories were compromised; is it possible for them to have had any effect on the other computer, if they were merely stored on that computer & never accessed?

The files will be compromised, but as long as you haven't run them, they wont effect your other machine.

I have some older programs that I'll have extreme difficulty finding to re-install. Is there a way to check and possibly disinfect only these? nȯne of them are integral to system function, mainly just games in fact, but I'd be disappointed to lose them forever.

There is a way we can do online scans and see what the scanners report, but that depends if the scanner see anything. If they are infect, they CANNOT be cleaned, Virut is an extremely buggy piece of malware.

On the same note, is it possible for the virus to infect anything else besides .exe and .scr files? The blog page you directed me to suggested that HTML and PHP files could be compromised, but were quite easy to clean; have mine already been cleaned, or should I avoid backing those up as well?

If you have edited your php/html files to remove any code you didn't put there, then they should be okay.

You also mentioned archives; are all archives vulnerable, or merely the executable files within those archives? Will any archive with an executable file be compromised in itself, or will deleting the executables within my archives help?

The exe file INSIDE the archive is infected, but the archive file itself (.zip/.rar) are okay.

Is there any potential for this virus to replicate in document files, mp3s, videos, saved game files, etc., and if so do I have any recourse for them?

Yes, if you run a patched file, it will re-infect your machine again, many experts now suggest that you drop everything and make a fresh start, because as I said above, it will just spread like wild fire if it returns again.

Yep, it's a Dell Inspiron 530.

Think you could direct me towards those online scanners? I'd like to save what I can of my older programs, if possible.

Is there any potential for this virus to replicate in document files, mp3s, videos, saved game files, etc., and if so do I have any recourse for them?
Yes, if you run a patched file, it will re-infect your machine again, many experts now suggest that you drop everything and make a fresh start, because as I said above, it will just spread like wild fire if it returns again.
I think either you misunderstood this last question, or I misunderstood your answer... I was asking about data files such as documents, spreadsheets, mp3s, videos, saved games, etc. These aren't runnable per se, they're opened by programs, so they should be safe as I understand it. Just trying to confirm that the programs themselves can be, and probably are, compromised - but a file that I've opened with a compromised program isn't ruined and can be safely backed up.

Yep, it's a Dell Inspiron 530.

Hopefully, it MIGHT have a recovery partition, we'll check soon.

Think you could direct me towards those online scanners? I'd like to save what I can of my older programs, if possible.

I think there might have been a misunderstanding on both our behalfs, see this topic too:

Virut is now spreading through mp3 files also (I know my speech needs updating!), and even though mp3 files are opened via WMP and not an executable file per se, but they can still trigger the infection all over again.

I've been reluctant to format, since as I said I have lots of files on here that aren't properly backed up and would be difficult to replace. Since your last post I've basically been biding my time to see if any more symptoms pop up, and haven't seen anything wrong. My virus scanners are working again; I scanned the computer with the MS Safety Scan, and it didn't find anything wrong; port 65520 is showing no activity; I've also been uploading files to the 3 scanning sites you provided, and nȯne of them have found anything in any of my files, aside from likely false positives (e.g. 2/41 virus-scanners showing a result that looks nothing like Virut). I've gotta say, for a virus that infects every file on the computer, this looks like a bit of a dud from where I'm sitting... Is it possible that ComboFix gave me a false positive?

It's possible it's a false positive, yes, but Combofix is widely trusted and your the person behind the screen, not me, I can't see what is happening personally.

Virut is a horrible infection, and weighing up the options of formatting or leave it, formatting would be the best option as leaving it lets the bad guys use your machine to spread the infection to other people, and if caught, YOU would be held responsible for it. That's why were here, to put a stop to that.

Ok. Do you think I can be at all confident about doing an online scan of the files that I'm most concerned about keeping? I'd be copying them to an external hard drive, then scanning them with the sites you recommended from another, uncompromised computer. I'm just leery of doing a full format and losing all my data if there's a good chance that I don't need to, and it seems very odd if ComboFix is the ONLY virus scanner out there that can find any trace of this virus. From all the information I've seen, the last release of this virus was in Feb 2009. Is it really likely that the 41 virus scanners virustotal.com runs, all updated within the last few days, are missing this while ComboFix catches it?

Virut can infect legit system files though, it's not every day that people upload their system files for a scan, or just run a regular scan with their AV either.

You can upload the files you want to keep and see if anything gets flagged, and if nȯne of the scanners say anything, you can keep them on an external hardrive as you wished. Smile
