# Win32/Nuqel.E & Bankerfox

## Win32/Nuqel.E & Bankerfox

I'm fairly sure I've got nuqel.e and bankerfox. The fake Antivirus Systme Pro alert pop ups are occuring all the time.

Windows says the system is infected and won't let me run any programs. I have Malwarebytes but I can't run it because it gets a windows security alert bubble and a security warming pop up that says "file mbam.exe is infected. Do you want to activate your antivirucs softwear now?". If I say "yes" to this pop up it takes me to the Win-Guard 2009 website to purchase softwear.

I also have something called Antivirus System Pro coming up when the Windows security bubble is clicked. It is also bringing up the IE browser for the sites like adult.org. and viagra.com

Adobe and Java should have all been up to date. I'm running windows XP. I can run HijackThis but I can not get the log file because the same security pop up warning of an infected file won't allow wordpad to open. I tried screen capping but the same problem happened.

I've currently disconnected the computer from the internet by unplugging the cable.

Rename ComboFix.exe to commy.exe before you save it to your Desktop
• Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools A guide to do this can be found [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
• Click Start>Run then copy paste the following command into the Run box & click OK "%userprofile%\desktop\commy.exe" /stepdel
• 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:

• Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.
• When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Please include the contents of C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply.

## Re: Win32/Nuqel.E & Bankerfox

Sorry for the tardy response. I tried to follow the instructions but I couldn't.

I downloaded combofix and renamed it to commy.exe when the save to screen came up. I then stopped avast, pasted the above line into the run box and hit enter. When I did this a security balloon came up saying commy.exe was infected. There were also pop up boxes that said n.pif, rundll32.exe and pev.cfxxe were infected.

I tried double clicking on the icon but that did nothing. Trying to go through the run box again after a reboot I got a screen with an agreement for comboxfix which I accepted but the security balloons and pop up boxes came up again and the combofix stopped working. Also my computer made a high pitched beeping noise. I tried downloading it again after a reboot but the same thing happened.

Your computer is infected with a dangerous infection:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

We have hit a dead end. Please tell me when you have completed a reformat and reinstall.

I am sorry for the bad news. I do not understand why these mean people make such harsh viruses, and I wish there was a way to clean your system without everything being damaged. But, the problem is, cleaning the system, most files will be damaged. It is like trying to clean up a city that just had a tornado or hurricane run through it. Takes rebuilding, and time to set back up.

## Re: Win32/Nuqel.E & Bankerfox

That is really bad news indeed but thank you for trying to help. I assume this means it's pointless to try and save any files on that computer or create any of the back ups in the beginning of the reformat tutorial? Also my other problem is that when I got this computer it did not come with an OS disk or any motherboard driver disks.

## Re: Win32/Nuqel.E & Bankerfox

We can try to cure it, can't be sure it will work, but it is worth a try:

• Double-click on drweb-cureit.exe to start the program.
An Express Scan of your PC notice will appear.
• Under Start the Express Scan Now, Click OK to start the scan.
This is a short scan that will scan the files currently running in memory.
If something is found, click the Yes button when it asks you if you want to cure it.
• Once the short scan has finished, Click Options > Change settings
• Choose the Scan tab and UNcheck Heuristic analysis
• Back at the main window, click Custom Scan, then Select drives (a red dot will show which drives have been chosen).
• Then click the Start/Stop Scanning button (green arrow on the right, and the scan will start.
• When finished, a message will be displayed at the bottom advising if any viruses were found.
• Click Yes to all if it asks if you want to cure/move the file.
• When the scan has finished, look if you can see the icon next to the files found.
If so, click it, then click the next icon right below and select Move incurable.
(This will move it to the C:\Documents and Settings\userprofile\DoctorWeb\Quarantine folder if it can't be cured)
• Next, in the Dr.Web CureIt menu on top, click file and choose save report list.
• Save the DrWeb.csv report to your Desktop.
• Exit Dr.Web Cureit when you have finished.
• Important! Reboot your computer because it could be possible that files in use will be moved/deleted during reboot.
• After reboot, post the contents of the log from Dr.Web in your next reply. (You can use Notepad to open the DrWeb.cvs report)

## Re: Win32/Nuqel.E & Bankerfox

Thank you for suggesting a cure. I understand that it's risky but I'd rather try it than just give up.

Just one question:
Would it be better to download DrWeb-CureIt on a different machine, then burn it to CD and move it from the CD to the desktop of the infected machine then run it?

## Re: Win32/Nuqel.E & Bankerfox

I tried downloading directly onto the infected machine first. I couldn't get it to run - the security pop up box came up with the file infected warning. I rebooted and tried it again. This time it did work. I did the express scan. It said the host files needed fȋxed. I said yes. At the end of the scan it said no virus had been found. I then did the driver scan and it also came with the message that there were no virus on the machine. On the menu it would not give me the option to generate a report.

I got a pop up offering me a free trial version of professional edition DrWeb-CureIt as well as one saying that no suspicious or infected files had been found on the computer. I am still getting the Antivirus System Pro pop ups warning that attacks using nuquel.e and bankerfox.a are occuring. I also get the spywear pop up, Internet Explore opening to porno.org, viagra.com, etc., and Windows Security balloons saying that files are infected and can not be run.

At this point it's upsetting that I can't get my doc, pdf, and jpeg files off the machine without them being infected but I think this is probably the time to accept that they are lost and there is nothing left but to do the reformat and reinstall as per the other instructions you linked to.

My concern now is can I plug the monitor, keyboard (microsoft DIN6 connection), mouse (microsoft - usb connection), speakers (jack connector), and printer (HP 1000 usb connection) that are on the infected machine into a clean system without fear of spreading the infection?

Thank you very much to taking the time to try and help me. I really appreciate it.

## Re: Win32/Nuqel.E & Bankerfox

Those devices are fine to transfer. It is just your hard drive (or flash drive or external drive) that are vulnerable.

Are you saying you will go with the reformat and reinstall?

## Re: Win32/Nuqel.E & Bankerfox

I will do the reformat and reinstall as soon as I can. I never got any disks with it. All the information for the OS and motherboard drivers is on the G drive (this is supposed to be a seperate partition but I don't know if it's a physically seprate drive) according to the specs that came with the computer. I am wondering if this is going to cause enough problems that I'll end up writing this tower off as an expensive lesson.

I had an external drive and a flash drive on the infected machine. The external drive was unplugged minutes before it became apparent I had problem but I don't know if it was infected or not. I tried moving a clean copy of malwarebytes over on the flashdrive so I suspect it's almost certain that it's infected. Can you recommend any way to safely check them?

I know this is very strange but before I began the reformate/reinstal I thought I'd try everything once more just in case. I got Malwarebytes to run and it's currently doing a quick scan. If I can get a log I will post it. The trick seemed to be opening Malwarebytes during the start up sequence so whatever is causing the infection hadn't activated itself yet. When it did come up it didn't seem to cause any problems with Malwarebytes.

## Re: Win32/Nuqel.E & Bankerfox

I'm not sure if it's relevant but to get at the log I had to double click the file icon where I'd saved in multiple times because the file would open then disappear very quickly. It was only after about six attempts that the file would stay open long enough for me to copy the text. I also can't open malwarebytes now that I've closed it. I tried rebooting and opening it quickly like the first time but it didn't work. I also still can't run HijackThis. Maybe this is a sign that the reformat and reinstall is still the fastest way to deal with the problem.

## Re: Win32/Nuqel.E & Bankerfox

Sorry for the slow response. I've been away for a few days. When I booted the machine up it froze and I had to reboot it three times before it would finish. Once it had successfully booted up the usual antivirus system pro warnings and security pop ups did not come up as they have been which was unexpected.

## Re: Win32/Nuqel.E & Bankerfox

I'm glad of the note on the run time otherwise I would have been a lot more worried when it took hours to do the scan. Thanks for keeping going with this.

## Re: Win32/Nuqel.E & Bankerfox

Now to get you off to a good start we will clean your restore points so that all the bad stuff is gone for good. Then if you need to restore at some stage you will be clean. There are several ways to reset your restore points, but this is my method:
• Select Start > All Programs > Accessories > System tools > System Restore.
• On the dialogue box that appears select Create a Restore Point
• Click NEXT
• Enter a name e.g. Clean
• Click CREATE

You now have a clean restore point, to get rid of the bad ones:
• Select Start > All Programs > Accessories > System tools > Disk Cleanup.
• In the Drop down box that appears select your main drive e.g. C
• Click OK
• The System will do some calculation and the display a dialogue box with TABS
• Select the More Options Tab.
• At the bottom will be a system restore box with a CLEANUP button click this
• Accept the Warning and select OK again, the program will close and you are done

==

Download Security Check by screen317 from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] or [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].
• Save it to your Desktop.
• Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
• A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.

## Re: Win32/Nuqel.E & Bankerfox

When I tried to run this the first time Norton's Sonar protection setting caught it as a virus and removed it so I had to download it again and disable Norton before running it. I hope this isn't a problem. Here's the log.

## Re: Win32/Nuqel.E & Bankerfox

I'm sorry I just realized that it was probably stupid to run it with Norton completely disabled. I reran it with just the Sonar protection setting turned off. Here's that log just in case it makes a different. Sorry about that.

## Re: Win32/Nuqel.E & Bankerfox

No big deal. Norton always detects that tool. It is not a bad tool, I trained with the author of it.

Please read the following information that I have provided, which will help you prevent malicious software in the future. Please keep in mind, malware is a continuous danger on the Internet. It is highly important to stay safe while browsing, to prevent re-infection.

Software recommendations

AntiSpyware

• [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
SpywareBlaster is a program that prevents spyware from installing on your computer. A tutorial on using SpywareBlaster may be found [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].
• [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].
Spybot - Search & Destroy is a spyware and adware removal program. It also has realtime protection, TeaTimer to help safeguard your computer against spyware. (The link for Spybot - Search & Destroy contains a tutorial that will help you download, install, and begin using Spybot).

NOTE: Please keep ALL of these programs up-to-date and run them whenever you suspect a problem to prevent malware problems.

Resident Protection help
A number of programs have resident protection and it is a good idea to run the resident protection of one of each type of program to maintain protection. However, it is important to run only one resident program of each type since they can conflict and become less effective. That means only one antivirus, firewall, and scanning anti-spyware program at a time. Passive protectors such as SpywareBlaster can be run with any of them.

Rogue programs help
There are a lot of rogue programs out there that want to scare you into giving them your money and some malware actually claims to be security programs. If you get a popup for a security program that you did not install yourself, do NOT click on it and ask for help immediately. It is very important to run an antivirus and firewall, but you can't always rely on reviews and ads for information. Ask in a security forum that you trust if you are not sure. If you are unsure and looking for anti-spyware programs, you can find out if it is a rogue here:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

• [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] - It is very important to make sure that both Internet Explorer and Windows are kept current with the latest critical security patches from Microsoft. To do this just start Internet Explorer and select Tools > Windows Update, and follow the online instructions from there.
• [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well known ad sites and other bad sites. This prevents your computer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1, which is your local computer's loopback address, meaning it will be difficult to infect your computer in the future.

Please consider using an alternate browser
Mozilla's Firefox browser is a very good alternative. In addition to being generally more secure than Internet Explorer, it has a very good built-in popup blocker and add-ons, like NoScript, can make it even more secure. Opera is another good option.

If you are interested:

Thank you for choosing GeekPolice. Please see [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] if you would like to leave feedback or contribute to our site. Do you have any more questions?

## Re: Win32/Nuqel.E & Bankerfox

I figured I should probably ignore Norton since you wouldn't want to make more work for youself. *g* I almost feel like I'll be jinxing it to say I'm grateful it's fȋxed. Thank you very much for the help. I'm happy to donate. I assume that I should run one of the antispyware programs in conjunction with Norton? On the subject of Norton what do you think of its internet security suite? Last question, should I remove Combox Fix, DrWeb-CureIt, and Security Check?

## Re: Win32/Nuqel.E & Bankerfox

Norton seems to be ok. Sometimes it has its problems, but it will help prevent malware and remove it. It is not bad, but not everyone likes it.

You can safely ignore the antispyware message up there.

To remove all of the tools we used and the files and folders they created, please do the following:

• Save it to your Desktop.
• Double click OTC.exe.
• Click the CleanUp! button.
• If you are prompted to Reboot during the cleanup, select Yes.
• The tool will delete itself once it finishes.

Note: If any tool, file or folder (belonging to the program we have used) hasn't been deleted, please delete it manually.
