BankerFox.a & Win32.nugel.e....maybe?

Post by macmanetz on 24th February 2010, 3:54 am

I seem to have similar symptoms for the BankerFox.a & Win32.nugel.e virus as posted by others: IE popping up with porn, numberous Security Warnings that say:
"Application cannot be executed. file_________.exe is infected. Do you want to activate your anti-virus software now?", Anti-virus System Pro Alert self-installed in the systray and trying to sell me anti-virus, yellow MS new update shields duplicating in the systray and when moused over, disappear. Word documents won't open and the warnings say they are infected. Notepad flickers and closes. Works won't open...haven't tried Word.

I am running XP w/3rd package, and Panda Antivirus, which after updating data files and then scanning 3 times says that no malicious software or virus found. MS Security Center says that Panda is out of date but it is not, current as of yesterday & then again today. FireFox is working fine for now which is what I am using.

Last night when this started, after reading around on the net, I downloaded Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware in safe mode but could not install it in any mode. Security Warning said the file mbam.exe is infected.

I tried to download HighjackThis from your site to post a log and be a step ahead, but FireFox download gave this message: "Winlogon.scr-this download has been blocked by your Security Zone Policy-rapidshare.com". I have no idea where to look to change this.

In thie midst of all of this both IE & FireFox have new updates ( both browsers are fairly current) but I don't know if I should do this while the computer is in this state.

Could you help me get this computer back in working order? This is my first posting and appreciate any help and guidance. Thanks! Can't Believe It

PS: I just found that Malwarebytes runs in safe mode but only with data from 01/07/2010 as I cannot get the internet to work in safe mode. Also Notepad works in safemode. :smile2:

I downloaded ComboFix but when trying to double click on it to get it going, was told "The file combofix.exe is infected." So I rebooted in Safe Mode. Then, I was given a choice to enter Administrator or MyName (I never log in by name-my desktop just auto comes up). I chose Administrator but when the desktop came up, none of the familiar icons came up and neither did Combofix. It wasn't in the program files either. So, I logged out and reentered under the MyName option. My regular desktop w/icons along with ComboFix (all in Safe Mode)came up. I double clicked on it and started the whole process. When done I saved a copy of the log to the desktop for easy find, rebooted and saw no evidence (so far) of the virus/malware problems that I was having. Notepad easily opened (remember, it wouldn't open) and here is the ComboFix log:

I ran a scan with Panda and it found 2 viruses and deleted them:

Virus detected:Trj/CI.A Path: C:\Qoobox\Quarantine\C\Documents and settings\HP_Owner\Local Settings\Application Data\tsxlqv\xpwwsftav.exe.vir

Virus detected:Trj/CI.A Path: C:\System Volume Information\_restore{DDE3EB95-4B24-44D8-AD38-1F974B96C2F0}\RP1090
A0103659.exe

Won't do any more until I hear from you. Everything still seems to be working fine ....

Looks good to me. Let's clean up.

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


To remove all of the tools we used and the files and folders they created, please do the following:
Please download [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] by OldTimer:

  • 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.

==

Please download [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] to your desktop
  • Please double-click TFC.exe to run it. (Note: If you are running on Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator).
  • It will close all programs when run, so make sure you have saved all your work before you begin.
  • Click the Start
    button to begin the process. Depending on how often you clean temp
    files, execution time should be anywhere from a few seconds to a minute
    or two. Let it run uninterrupted to completion.
  • Once it's finished it should reboot your machine. If it does not, please manually reboot the machine yourself to ensure a complete clean.


==

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.

Going to System Restore makes me nervous Can't Believe It ! I backed up everything in December or January but whatever has been created in the last month has not yet been backedup. Please reassure me that I\'m not going to lose any documents, photos, files & folders that I\'ve created to work with before I proceed!
Thanks..

You will not lose anything.

Your computer is clean, and now it is time to fix the damages.

If you do not delete the old restore points, and you restore back to that time, your computer will be re-infected. By resetting System Restore, and creating a new Restore Point, you are ensuring your computer totally clean and the ability to restore to a spot that is totally assured to be clean.

Also, in this last set of instructions, you said:
"Note: If any tool, file or folder (belonging to the program we have used) hasn\'t been deleted, please delete it manually."
In other words, I will be deleting all the programs you had me download-ComboFix, TFC, Malwarebytes, Superanti-spyware & ESET (and their logs), AND do this by the end of running OTC...and then redownload a fresh version of TFC (to continue on with the instructions)?? No way!

Should I delete Panda (since it supposedly deleted 2 Trojans) and freshly reinstall it??

Thanks so much!

Do the OTC step last. Just do the System Restore, TFC, and Security Check. Post the log for Security Check, then run OTC.

If you would like to keep SuperAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes, go ahead. Panda should be fine the way it is.

After seeing the Security Check log and trying to keep programs current to keep hackers out, I updated AdobeReader to 9.3 as well as Java to 6.17 ...and I deleted SpySweeper which has been expired for a few years. So I ran Security Check again and am reposting the log. The only thing is now when I boot up, it seems to take extra long for the system to load and settle down as though there are a ton of programs opening. I went into MSconfig>Startup and unchecked AdobeReader, Adobe ARM (whatever that is) and SuperAntiSpyware (I plan to run this on demand). I still saw SpySweeper listed at Startup in MSconfig even though I deleted it thru Control Panel-Add/remove. I'd turn off more startup items but I don't know what some of the things listed are. It still seems long at booting...got any ideas or did I mess something up?

It is probably an "orphan" in the Registry. Harmless and of very little size.

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.

A couple of questions:
1. an orphan? in the registry? This is what takes the computer long to boot? Operates fine but slow to boot...Could you direct me to a way to clean it up? or direct me somewhere to take moves to speed up the booting or how can I find out what to illuminate at start up?

2. During all the above fixing of my computer, I downloaded Superantispyware....should I delete it for Spywareblaster or Spybot? or just go with it?

3.Is there a difference between "anti-spyware program" and "passive protectors"? or are they the same in one?

4. I clicked on the hpHosts file and looked over the site, but I don't understand what I'm suppose to do with it, other than check out if a site has a category. I don't understand the "hpHosts file replaces your current HOSTS file" part. Could you please clarify?

Am using FireFox.

Started using the computer on a normal basis today. After being on Adobe Reader for some 10 minutes a sign came up saying that Adobe had an error and it was damaged.....I guess I should download again...otherwise, everything is working fine...Thanks so much!

Did you read about what I said about an orphan?
It is probably an "orphan" in the Registry. Harmless and of very little size.
Has nothing to do with boot.

Your computer boots up slow, because of all the components to start up and be warm so the computer can work properly. I recommend to leave your computer in a low power mode, instead of turning it off all the time. Doing this will improve the life of your computer. To access Standby, which is a low power mode, click Start > Shutdown, and choose Standby.

To access Hibernate, a no-power mode, can be accessed by Start > Shutdown. Then hold down Shift and click Hibernate. Hibernate can resume the computer faster, by pressing the power button on the computer.

SuperAntiSpyware free edition is ok to have if you want to scan your computer with it from time to time. Just like Malwarebytes. As long as you do not buy those, they can be saved as just scanners.

SpywareBlaster is a passive anti-spyware. Which means that it protects your files and other data from anti-spyware installation. However, it does not work like Spybot or any other real-time protection. So it can be paired with any realtime protection.

Since you have Panda Antivirus Pro 2010, forget Spybot. Because, Panda has enough protection for antispyware.

hpHosts is a driver that helps to prevent you to go to bad sites. The installer replaces the sample HOSTS file you already have located at C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc

Download for it is here: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Uninstall Adobe Reader here: Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs.
Then reinstall it, by downloading and installing the new one from Adobe.com.

=====

This is just a secondary recommendation, and a potential investment you should choose to make in the future. Consider upgrading your Operating System from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. The new Operating System by Microsoft, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], is the most secure version of Windows yet, and has very good security features that can help you stay safe from hackers.

It is a fast, simple, version of Windows, and highly recommended. You would be doing yourself a favor, because malware prevention was not this easy before. Windows XP is the most insecure, and most vulnerable to an attack by hackers and identity theft. I would recommend upgrading as soon as possible, but that investment is up to you.
