  1. Hi. Like others who have posted on this forum recently I am trying to remove abebot trojan downloader from my mother in laws laptop. The symptoms are exactly as others have described - pop up security windows, yellow triange in bottom right hand corner etc.

    I am the only person my mother in law knows who might be able to help, but I am not that technical. It is a new laptop with windows vista. From what I can tell it is running the latest version of Java and AVG virus software is all up to date.

    I have managed to download and run highjack this and the log is attached (I think).

    I would appreciate any help. I am desperate!

    Many thanks,
    Katie

    Please can someone help?

    I am now really desperate.

    Kritius - you seem to be a genius at getting rid of this thing. I know you are probably really backlogged right now but can you help at all?

    Thanks in advance,
    Katie

    Hi katieanne,

    Download and Install SDFix
    • Download SDFix and save it to your Desktop.
    • Double click SDFix.exe and it will extract the files to %systemdrive%

    Run SDFix
    • Open the extracted SDFix folder and double click RunThis.bat to start the script.
    • Type Y to begin the cleanup process.
    • It will remove any Trojan Services and Registry Entries that it finds then prompt you to press any key to Reboot.
    • Press any Key and it will restart the PC.
    • When the PC restarts the Fixtool will run again and complete the removal process then display Finished, press any key to end the script and load your desktop icons.
    • Once the desktop icons load the SDFix report will open on screen and also save into the SDFix folder as Report.txt
    • Attach Report.txt back here

    • Once the program has loaded, select Perform full scan, then click Scan.
    • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
    • Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
    • When completed, a log will open in Notepad. please copy and paste the log into your next reply
      • If you accidently close it, the log file is saved here and will be named like this:
      • C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\Logs\mbam-log-date (time).txt

    Afterwards please run a fresh Hijackthis scan

    Attach all 3 logs back here

    Hi Blind Dragon
    I've fallen at the first hurdle. It says to run SDFix in safe mode on vista, but in safe mode it does nothing when i click on 'runthis'. Any ideas? I have checked i have administrator settings on user.
    Thank you,
    Katie

    Sorry about that, SDFix currently wont work with Vista.

    Go ahead and run the MBAM instructions and I will see if I can find a vista compatible alternative.

    Ok, as you can see your system is heavily infected. Lets try one more thing then you need to go through the preliminary removal instructions. I will walk you through all of it.

    I just wrote these instructions up today so if something seems off please let me know

    Step 1
    a. Click Start button
    b. In the Start Search box, type timedata.cpl, and then press ENTER. The Date and Time dialog box opens.
    c. On the Date and Time tab, click Change date and time. If the User Account Control dialog box opens, click Continue.
    d. If you are prompted to type an administrator password, and you see administrator account names listed, you are not logged on with a computer administrator account. Type the administrator password and press ENTER. If you do not know the administrator password, you may have to ask the administrator of your computer for help.

    Otherwise, if you are not prompted to type an administrator password, you are already logged on with a computer administrator account. Click Cancel, and then click Cancel again to close the Date and Time dialog box. Go to step 2.

    Step 2
    a. Click Start button, point to All Programs, and then click Windows Update.
    b. In the left pane, click Change settings.
    c. Click to select Install updates automatically (recommended).
    d. Under Recommended updates, click to select the Include recommended updates when downloading, installing, or notifying me about updates check box, and then click OK. If you are prompted for an administrative password or for confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation. Go to step 3.

    Step 3
    Download the Malicious Software Removal Tool. Click Download then You must accept the Microsoft Software License Terms. The license terms are only displayed for the first time that you access Automatic Updates.

    Step 4
    Right click the icon on your desktop and select Run As Administrator
    Click Next
    Click Full Scan then click Next
    Let the tool run
    And post if it finds anything here

    After that you can please follow these Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions and post back in this thread with the requested logs. There should be at least 3.

    1)AVG log
    2)Combofix log
    3)Hijackthis log (Step 15)

    This thread is for the use of katieanne only. Please don't post your own virus/spyware problems in this thread. Instead, open a new thread in our security and the web forum.

    No problem, I have 2 of my own so know how that goes, I actually stayed up through the night trying to find a fix for this as so many people have this same infection.

    I think I have it down on XP, now just have to come up with something for Vista

    By the time you get the logs up it should be sorted. ;)

    Hi again Blind Dragon.

    I followed steps 1-4 as advised. I then started following the 'Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions'.

    I am up to step 10 of these and have just run tool 1 (smitfraudfix). I have run it, but not yet re-booted in safe mode to delete the files. The report seemed to suggest I might be deleting files that were ok so I wasn't sure...should I go ahead?

    Anyway, i then realised that since I did steps 1-4 early this morning I haven't had any pop-ups at all and the warning triangle has disappeared. Do you think it's possible that abebot has been destroyed?

    Should I continue with tools 2 and 3 and then steps 11-15? Or should I just do the AVG, Combofix and HJT logs and send them to you?

    I'll await your advice. Thank you so much,

    Katie

    Lets try the non give up way first.

    Keep on with the steps and post the logs, it has a habit of coming back.

    For step 10, attach report.txt from smitfraud here and I'll advise you what to do from there.

    Run tool 2 and tool 3 then continue the instructions and attach those logs as well. With smitfraud you don't delete anything until you run option 2 so no worries there.

    Good to hear about the pop ups going away

    Hi Blind Dragon - sorry!
    As I am running vista i didn't run Panda, but instead tried to run AVG antirootkit but the link isn't working and i tried searching their site but couldn't find it. Should i just go to next step and run combo fix?
    Thank you! Katie

    Hi Blind Dragon.
    I think I have completed every step as best I can. AVG, Combifix and HJT logs attached.
    I'd appreciate your advice about how it's looking! Thank you so much.

    ***DO NOT USE MSCONFIG TO BOOT INTO SAFE MODE***

    I would like you to do an online scan so that we can what else may be in your system,
    Run Kaspersky online scanner
    With the exception of Internet Explorer, which must be used for this scan, keep ALL programs closed
    Note: It is recommended to disable onboard antivirus program and antispyware programs while performing scans to speed up scan time and to make sure there are no conflicts.
    Do not go surfing while your resident protection is disabled!
    Once the scan is finished remember to re-enable resident antivirus protection along with whatever antispyware application you use.


    Do an online scan with Kaspersky Online Scanner in Internet Explorer. You will be prompted to install and run an ActiveX component from Kaspersky, Click Yes.
    Note for Internet Explorer 7 users: If at any time you have trouble with the accept button of the licence, click on the Zoom tool located at the right bottom of the IE window and set the zoom to 75%. Once the licence accepted, reset to 100%.
    • The program will launch and then start to download the latest definition files.
    • Once the scanner is installed and the definitions downloaded, click Next.
    • Now click on Scan Settings
    • In the scan settings make sure that the following are selected:
      o Scan using the following Anti-Virus database:
      o Extended (If available, otherwise use standard)
      o Scan Options:
      o Scan Archives
      o Scan Mail Bases
    • Click OK
    • Under select a target to scan, select My Computer
    • The scan will take a while so be patient and let it run.
    • Please do not use your computer while the scan is running. Once the scan is complete it will display if your system has been infected.
    • Click the Save Report As... button (see red arrow below)

      [​IMG]
    • In the Save as... prompt, select Desktop
    • In the File name box, name the file
    • In the Save as type prompt, select Text file (see below)

      [​IMG]
    • Attach the report in your next post.

    Run HijackThis again and post a fresh log.

    Computer still running ok for you?

    You should post next with,
    1)Kaspersky report
    2)Fresh HijackThis log

    Hi Katie,

    Everything above sounds good, only other thing I want you to check while in windows explorer ->
    C:\ProgramData\wxknopgd (delete folder if it is there)

    Hopefully it has already been removed, but if not just delete it as well
