MSN Virus Link: Is this you in pic? facebook & email address in URL

By Jessiw
Jul 31, 2010
  1. Yesterday on MSN someone sent my brother a virus link asking if it was him in a picture, followed by a URL containing his email address and and something about facebook. When he clicked on it, an executable file downloaded to his computer that had a series of numbers in the name, followed by facebook.exe.jpg or something along those lines. It seems that everytime he logs into MSN, the link is spammed out to any of his contacts who are online.
    Also, blank messenger windows keep popping up, and eventually it says MSN is not responding.
    There don't seem to be any other symptoms that we've noticed so far.
    He's running Windows Vista 32 bit, and Windows Live Suite Beta for MSN and such.
    We've scanned fir viruses with Trend Micro Internet Security Pro, and the only things that came up were a few cookies, which were automatically deleted.
    We will run the preliminary 8-step removal thing soon, once he's finished what he's doing and post the relevant logs.
    Any help would be much appreciated, because I am at a loss as to what to do. :)

    We completed the preliminary 8-step removal instructions, and will attach the logs below.
    We did have a couple of issues - when we ran the GMER we encountered a blue screen error each time, in both safe mode and normal.
    The other issue we had was that DDS only produced one .txt file; the Attach.txt did not show up.
    Here's the MalwareBytes log:

    Please download ComboFix from Here or Here to your Desktop.

    **Note: In the event you already have Combofix, this is a new version that I need you to download. It is important that it is saved directly to your desktop**
    1. Please, never rename Combofix unless instructed.
    2. Close any open browsers.
    3. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.
      • Very Important! Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan. They can interfere with ComboFix or remove some of its embedded files which may cause "unpredictable results".
      • Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive. If yours is not listed and you don't know how to disable it, please ask.
      NOTE1. If Combofix asks you to install Recovery Console, please allow it.
      NOTE 2. If Combofix asks you to update the program, always do so.
      • Close any open browsers.
      • WARNING: Combofix will disconnect your machine from the Internet as soon as it starts
      • Please do not attempt to re-connect your machine back to the Internet until Combofix has completely finished.
      • If there is no internet connection after running Combofix, then restart your computer to restore back your connection.
    4. Double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
    5. When finished, it will produce a report for you.
    6. Please post the "C:\ComboFix.txt"
    **Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall**

    Make sure, you re-enable your security programs, when you're done with Combofix.

    DO NOT make any other changes to your computer (like installing programs, using other cleaning tools, etc.), until it's officially declared clean!!!
