Solved zafi.B trojan infection

Post by xiaohui on Wed Jan 07, 2009 3:45 pm

Hello,

I downloaded and ran HijackThis and these are the scan results from the infected computer (I am using my laptop because the other computer's internet access and e-mail doesn't want to work at all). Could you kindly help me to choose what I need to delete? Also, there are several other infections on the system. Should I assume that this thread is only for zafi.B infection? Are there other threads for other infection issues? Thank you so much for your assistance!

Also, perhaps you can give me your opinion on AVG AntiVirus and Ad-ware. Are they good programs, better yet are they good protection? Do you have any suggestions on how to better protect any computer without paying an arm, a leg and half a torso to do so?

Thank you, Belahzur!

Did you reboot after you removed everything?
We'll fix up protection once we make sure this is clean.

  • Please download DDS by sUBs to your Desktop (Important!!) from one of these locations:
    [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
    [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
    [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
  • Double click DDS.scr to run
  • When complete, DDS.txt will open.
  • Click No for Optional Scan.
  • Save the report to your Desktop.
  • Copy and paste DDS.txt back here, I don't need to see attach.txt.

Mmmm, I am downloading, burning to CD/DVD and transferring to the other computer. The internet on the other computer seems to be working now. Yes, I did restart after the removal process. Shall I type one of the links into the browser on the other computer and download directly to that desktop?

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

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
    "vinclock"=-

  • Save this as fix.reg, save it to your desktop.
  • Double click fix.reg to run it.
  • Select yes to the registry merge prompt.


What problems remain now?

Nothing remains that I can see. That is nothing seems to be interfering with the computer's function. Is there anything else you recommend doing just to be sure? If everything is indeed fine, can you recommend ways to protect the computer?

Bow or Thanks

Post by Belahzur on Wed Jan 07, 2009 5:00 pm

You are running two AV's, this is a bad idea as they can conflict and cause problems. I see Symantec and AVG7.
I would recommend that you remove AVG7 to avoid conflict and other future problems.

Go to Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and remove the following programs if present.

  • AVG7


I also see Abode Reader 8. This is an old version and is open to malware attacks, we need to close these holes.
Uninstall Abode Reader 8 like you did AVG7, then once version 8 is gone, please download version 9 from here and install it:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

We need to make a new restore point.

To turn off 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 (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.

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:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
I also recommand the following add-ons for Firefox, they will help keep you safe from malicious scripts or activeX exploits.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

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

To help you keep your software updated, please considering using this free software program that will check for program updates.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

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.].

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

Solved Re: zafi.B trojan infection

Post by xiaohui on Wed Jan 07, 2009 5:10 pm

Sweet! Thank you! Couple more questions though Open Grin

I like Mozilla very much. Can I uninstall Internet Explorer as they are both pretty big programs and it seems like a waste of space to have them both installed and not use one?

Symantec has been outdated for a long time - the owner of the computer I was using does not wish to pay for virus updates, etc. Should I uninstall Symantec all together? If Symantec is not going to be used, is AVG a good alternative? If not, have you a recommendation?

Windows has an onboard firewall (unless I'm mistaken). Is this insufficient? Will running either of the other firewalls you mentioned cause a conflict with Windows?

That's all I can think of at this point. I really appreciate your help. What I've learned from you will go a long way to protecting my personal computer, this other computer and anyone else's I can pass this great stuff on to!

Cheers Mate

Hello.
No, I would recommend you to keep IE, I use Mozilla too, but keep IE because you can access Windows Updates through it.

Okay, please download one of these two AV's:

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.

Then uninstall Norton/Symentec AND AVG, then install either Avira or avast! you downloaded.
DO NOT SURF without an AV active.

Windows Firewall is only basic, running one of the firewalls I recommended will improve your security.

Please delete dds.com from your Desktop.
