Solved Trojan.Zlob.G (hijack this listing inside)

Post by bobu on 6th December 2008, 6:42 pm

Hi, I am receiving the same popup that you are helping others with. The one about security center alert saying windows firewall has detected unauthorized activity and prompting me to enable protection. Then it directs me to the "Perfect Defender 2009" page. My hijack this file is:

By the way, I just installed Stopzilla and ran a scan. That seems to have allowed me to get to my homepage without it wanting to redirect, but it is not a registered copy and once I uninstall it I am afraid it will start the redirection again.

Solved Re: Trojan.Zlob.G (hijack this listing inside)

Post by Belahzur on 6th December 2008, 6:49 pm

Hello.

I notice that you have Spybot's TeaTimer running. While this is normally a wonderful tool to protect against hijackers, it can also interfere with HijackThis fixes. So please disable TeaTimer by doing the following:
1) Run Spybot-S&D
2) Go to the Mode menu, and make sure "Advanced Mode" is selected
3) On the left hand side, choose Tools -> Resident
4) Uncheck "Resident TeaTimer" and OK any prompts
You can reenable TeaTimer once your system is clean.

Please make sure Teatimer is disable before we do this, otherwise this fix will fail.



  • Open HijackThis
  • Choose "Do a system scan only"
  • Check the boxes in front of these lines:

  • Press "Fix Checked"
  • Close Hijack This.



  • Download combofix from here, use the top links - [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
  • 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 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.

Solved Re: Trojan.Zlob.G (hijack this listing inside)

Post by Belahzur on 6th December 2008, 7:22 pm

Hello.
You are running two AV's (Anti-virus),I notice the presense of Norton AND AVG8.
Running two AV's is a bad idea, they conflict and cause more problems than they fix.

Press Start > Control Panel > open "Add/remove programs"
Allow the list to load and uninstall ONLY!! one AV by selecting each presense of whichever one you want to get rid of and pressing the "Remove" button to the right.

Please post back and let me know which one you've got rid of.

Interesting, I removed AVG last night and installed the Norton 2009 30 day trial. It should not be picking up on the AVG still. Anyway, I went ahead and got rid of the Norton trial version just now. I will reinstall AVG later. I will also be removing Stopzilla later as well. Thank you.

Hello.
I think you should install AVG again now!!, because you will be surfing without an AV and you'll get instantly infected again, no point going any further without an AV.

1) [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
-Free anti-virus software for Windows.
-Detects and removes more than 50,000 viruses. Free support.
2) [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
-Anti-virus program for Windows.
-The home edition is freeware for noncommercial user.
3) [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
- Free edition of the AVG anti-virus program for Windows.
- Available for single computer use for home and non commercial use.

It is strongly recommended that you run only one antivirus program at a time. Having more than one antivirus program active in memory uses additional resources and can result in program conflicts and false virus alerts.

Once you have installed an AV, then we'll continue.

Thank you.

Now open a new notepad file.
Input this into the notepad file:

Folder::
c:\documents and settings\Bob\Application Data\AdwareAlert
c:\program files\Perfect Defender 2009

Save this as CFScript.txt, save it to your desktop also.
Then drag and drop CFScript.txt into combofix as seen below:


This will open combofix.exe again, agree to it's terms and allow it to run, it may want to reboot after it's done. Post the resulting log back here.

If you uninstall STOPZilla, delete these folders after it's uninstalled.

c:\documents and settings\All Users\Application Data\Norton
c:\documents and settings\All Users\Application Data\NortonInstaller
c:\program files\STOPzilla!
c:\documents and settings\All Users\Application Data\SITEguard
c:\program files\Common Files\Symantec Shared

Log looks good now though, what problems remain?

Hello.
We accept no donations yet, a simple thank you is enough for us.

Delete this folder in bold:

2. Click the System Restore tab.
3. Click the Turn off System Restore check box (or the Turn off System Restore on all drives check box), and then click OK.
4. Click Yes when you receive the prompt to the turn off System Restore.

Now we need to make a new restore point.
To turn on System Restore, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
2. Click the System Restore tab.
3. Click the Turn off System Restore check box (To turn on System Restore), and then click OK.

Please let me know when you've done that, and I'll post some prevention tips.

Below I have included a number of recommendations for how to protect your computer in order to prevent future malware infections. Please take these recommendations seriously; these few simple steps can stave off the vast majority of spyware problems. As happy as we are to help you, for your sake we would rather not have repeat customers. Goofy

1) Please navigate to [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and download all the "critical updates" for Windows. This can patch many of the security holes through which attackers can gain access to your computer.

Please either enable Automatic Updates under Start -> Control Panel -> Automatic Updates , or get into the habit of checking for Windows updates regularly. I cannot stress enough how important this is.

2) In order to protect yourself against spyware, you should consider installing and running the following free programs:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
A tutorial on using Ad-Aware to remove spyware from your computer 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.]
A tutorial on using Spybot to remove spyware from your computer may be found [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. Please also remember to enable Spybot's "Immunize" and "TeaTimer" features.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
A tutorial on using SpywareBlaster to prevent spyware from ever installing on your computer 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.]
A tutorial on using SpywareGuard for realtime protection against spyware and hijackers may be found [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

Make sure to keep these programs up-to-date and to run them regularly, as this can prevent a great deal of spyware hassle.

3) Please consider using an alternate browser. Mozilla's Firefox browser is fantastic; it is much more secure than Internet Explorer, immune to almost all known browser hijackers, and also has the best built-in popup blocker (as an added benefit!) that I have ever seen. If you are interested, Firefox may be downloaded from here:

I also recommand the following add-ons for Firefox, they will help keep you safe from malicious scripts or activeX exploits.

4) Also make sure to run your antivirus software regularly, and to keep it up-to-date.

5) Finally, consider maintaining a firewall. Some good free firewalls are [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], or

A tutorial on understanding and using firewalls may be found [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

Please also read Tony Klein's excellent article: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Hopefully this should take care of your problems! Good luck. Big Grin
