atapi.sys and cdrom.sys infected by Packed.Protector.C

Post by LadyNRed on 27th December 2009, 7:20 pm

As the subject says both atapi.sys and cdrom.sys are infected by Packed.Protector.C

AVG is constantlt popping up saying they are infected and that it has added them to the white list because they are essential system files. I have run several adware malware and virus programs and nȯne of them have fixed it. Please help Sad tearing Here is my HiJackThis log.

Re: atapi.sys and cdrom.sys infected by Packed.Protector.C

Post by Dr Jay on 28th December 2009, 4:37 am

Re-running ComboFix to remove infections:

  1. Close any open browsers.
  2. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.
  3. Open notepad and copy/paste the text in the quotebox below into it:

    Folder::
    c:\documents and settings\LocalService\Local Settings\Application Data\bwkwmy
    c:\documents and settings\LocalService\Local Settings\Application Data\dkualf
    c:\documents and settings\LocalService\Local Settings\Application Data\gsioss
    c:\documents and settings\LocalService\Local Settings\Application Data\ekhumd
    c:\documents and settings\LocalService\Local Settings\Application Data\srhdew
    c:\documents and settings\LocalService\Local Settings\Application Data\kmlytu
    c:\documents and settings\LocalService\Local Settings\Application Data\bpeijq

    File::
    c:\windows\Unubalikoqat.bin
    c:\windows\Xdiwujepopep.dat
    c:\windows\system32\fjhdyfhsn.bat
    c:\windows\system32\config\systemprofile\Application Data\fvgqad.dat

    DDS::
    uStart Page = about:blank
    uInternet Settings,ProxyServer = http=localhost:8080

  4. Save this as CFScript.txt, in the same location as ComboFix.exe



  5. Referring to the picture above, drag CFScript into ComboFix.exe
  6. When finished, it shall produce a log for you at C:\ComboFix.txt
  7. Please post the contents of the log in your next reply.

I have tried and tried to get the BitDefender Online scan to work but it won't. Everytime it will run for an hour or 2 and then for some reason just stop and say the scan failed. What should I do?

Re: atapi.sys and cdrom.sys infected by Packed.Protector.C

Post by Dr Jay on 1st January 2010, 4:47 am

Do you skip Windows Updates, or are you not able to get them? One of the main reasons you got infected was because of so many vulnerabilities, that could have gotten patched by Microsoft Windows Updates.

Please download the latest version of Kaspersky GetSystemInfo (GSI) from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and save it to your Desktop.
  • Please close all other applications running on your system.
  • Please double click GetSystemInfo.exe to open it.
  • Click the Settings button.
  • Set it to Maximum
  • IMPORTANT! Then please click Customize - choose Driver / Ports tab and
  • Uncheck Scan Ports.
  • Click Create Report to run it.
  • It will create a zip folder called GetSystemInfo_XXXXXXXXXXXXXX.zip on your Desktop. Please upload the folder to [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and click the Submit button.

Please copy and paste the url of the GSI Parser report (not the log) in your next reply.

I thought I had automatic updates on but apparently not. Should I go ahead and start downloading the updates now or should I wait until we get this all fixed? Here is the link you asked for.

Please upgrade to Windows XP SP3, because it includes all previously released updates. It also includes a small number of new functionalities. Some of the updates that Service Pack 3 provides, you may not have. It is now available via [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

Please download the newest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Before installing: it is important to remove older versions of Acrobat Reader since it does not do so automatically and old versions still leave you vulnerable.
Go to the Control Panel and enter Add or Remove Programs.
Search in the list for all previous installed versions of Adobe Acrobat Reader. Uninstall/Remove each of them.

Once old versions are gone, please install the newest version.

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:

Securing your computer

  • [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.
