Cleaning up after Trojan.Ransom

7 posts in this topic

(Oops; misposted in the General Forum.)

Howdy, y'all,

One of my neighbors has an HP laptop running Win 7 Pro SP1 x64. Somehow it became infected with the Trojan.Ransom virus that took control of the machine and demanded "200$" from the "FBI" because of "illegal" downloading, etc. I ran the Windows Defender Offline utility in full-scan mode from a bootable USB stick. WDO didn't seem to work the first time; I ran it again, followed by a full scan with MBAM with the latest signatures.

MBAM reported 0 objects detected. I then ran RogueKiller that detected ZeroAccess, but registry entries and folders and files only. Lastly, I ran Gmer that found Bluetooth registry entries only, but didn't actually name a virus.

Here's the output from RogueKiller:

Can I manually delete everything that is reported here? Otherwise, the system is operating as expected.

I discovered an older Java JRE that's known to be vulnerable, so I uninstalled it. And I installed all of the pending Windows critical updates, including the latest Cumulative Update for IE8 discussed in Security Bulletin MS12-063.

Thanks for your suggestions.

Run RogueKiller again and click Files

When the scan completes > click on the Registry tab

Put a check next to all of these and uncheck the rest: (if found)

[ZeroAccess][FOLDER] U : C:\Windows\Installer\{f155b85a-2c95-0ef8-5a24-11478d872d34}\U --> FOUND

    2012081517h0349.png

    67776163.jpg
    Any entries like this: \Device\Harddisk0\DR0 ( TDSS File System ) - please choose Skip.
  • If malicious objects are found, they will show in the Scan results - Select action for found objects and offer three options.
    Ensure Cure (default) is selected, then click Continue > Reboot now to finish the cleaning process.
    62117367.jpg
    Note: If Cure is not available, please choose Skip instead, do not choose Delete unless instructed.
  • A report will be created in your root directory, (usually C:\ folder) in the form of "TDSSKiller.[Version]_[Date]_[Time]_log.txt". Please copy and paste the contents of that file here. There may be 3 logs > so post or attach all of them.
  • Sometimes these logs can be very large, in that case please attach it or zip it up and attach it.

Here's a summary of what to do if you would like to print it out:

If a suspicious object is detected, the default action will be Skip, click on Continue

If you get the warning about a file UnsignedFile.Multi.Generic or LockedFile.Multi.Generic please choose

Skip and click on Continue

Any entries like this: \Device\Harddisk0\DR0 ( TDSS File System ) - please choose Skip.

If malicious objects are found, they will show in the Scan results and offer three (3) options.

Ensure Cure is selected, then click Continue => Reboot now to finish the cleaning process.

Note: If Cure is not available, please choose Skip instead, do not choose Delete unless instructed.

Good news, Mr. Chalee: Kaspersky TDSSKiller reports "No threats found."

I appreciate your assistance. I'll run TDSSKiller periodically on my own systems, and will recommend it to my friends.

I'll also try to find out why MS Security Essentials didn't detect the Trojan.Ransom.Gen when it was pushed to the laptop in question.

Nice-looking dogs.
