"spyware protect 2009 alert"

Post by havick on Sat Apr 04, 2009 3:57 am

Yes, my computer has this accursed virus. A friend of mine recommended you folks - said you did a hell of a job helping him out when he had a virus problem. So... here I am; hope you can help out. You've probably heard of this virus before but just in case, it's causing multiple windows to pop up and inform me of the problem, no doubt to get me to buy these peoples' program. "spyware protect 2009 alert" is what one window says, along with "attack from 84.62.211.20, port 43284 attacked port: 48641 threat: bankerFox.A Do you want to block this attack?" Another window gives a bogus "windows security alert" with a few obvious misspellings in it. A third window opens to say "spyware alert!" and under that, "vulnerabilities found."

Here's the hijackthis log:

The malware isn't all gone, a few things left to clean up.
First, I want to see what's installed.

  • Open HijackThis.
  • When Hijack This opens, click "Open the Misc Tools section"
  • Then select "Open Uninstall Manager"
  • Click on "Save List..." (generates uninstall_list.txt)
  • Click Save, copy and paste the results in your next post.

Please download the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

  • Save it to your desktop.
  • Please double-click OTMoveIt3.exe to run it.
  • Copy the bolded text below to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C (or, after highlighting, right-click and choose CopyCrying


    :files
    C:\WINDOWS\Tasks\At*.job
    C:\Documents and Settings\Walt\Desktop\dds.scr

    :reg
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\system\currentcontrolset\control\lsa]
    "Notification Packages"=hex(7):73,63,65,63,6c,69,00,00


  • Return to OTMoveIt3, right click in the "Paste instructions for items to be Moved" window (under the light blue bar) and choose Paste.

Re: "spyware protect 2009 alert"

Post by Belahzur on Tue Apr 07, 2009 10:35 pm

Hello.

I see that you are running Limewire.
P2P(Peer to peer) applications are designed to help you easily share and distribute files between you and a group of people. But they can also be used to distribute malware, and thus are not considered safe.
The removal of these programs is optional, but highly recommended.

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

  • Adobe Reader 7.1.0
  • J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 6
  • LimeWire 4.16.6
  • LiveUpdate 3.0 (Symantec Corporation)
  • Symantec KB-DocID:2003093015493306
  • Viewpoint Media Player
  • WildTangent Web Driver

Now lets clean up the tools we have used.

  • Please double-click OTMoveIt3.exe to run it again.
  • Press the green CleanUp! button.
  • Press Yes cleanup process prompt, do the same for the reboot prompt.

How is the machine running now?

I did have a question for you - I could see how limewire or torrent could bring in malware, but how is adobe reader dangerous? Also, I thought the symantec stuff was supposed to help keep malware out? Guess I'm just confused - appreciate the help!

Hello.
Adobe Reader isn't dangerous, but it's an old version and malware can abuse these holes, I'll link you to download the new version (version 9.1) soon.

I ask that you remove Symantec because you already have AVG installed. Running two AV's, this is a bad idea as they can conflict and cause problems and result in false virus alerts.

Please download and install Adobe Reader version 9.1 from here:

okay...

Post by havick on Tue Apr 07, 2009 11:38 pm

Did all the stuff you asked (except removing Symantec - when I looked, it was already gone). Thanks also for answering the question... I appreciate it. Do you think AVG is a pretty good one to be running? It seemed that hijackthis was more effective.

Everything seems to be running well - thanks again!

To be honest, I found AVG's detection rating quite week in 8.0, they have updated to 8.5. But still, I wouldn't go back to AVG.

I think you'd be better with with Avira, much better detection rating and defense.

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

  • AVG 7.5


Please install Avira antivirus otherwise you won't be protected.

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.

As soon as it's installed, right click the umberella icon in the corner tray > Start update.

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.

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.

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 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.
