My son's machine developed signs of a Trojan. We scanned, found zlob, and removed it with smitfraudfix. However, there's still something left, don't know if it's part of zlob or something else. There's a dll named nnnklifx.dll (Google comes up with nothing, I assume it's a randomly generated name). The dll is installed as a BHO and also as a WinLogon notify component, so it can't be removed (even with a remove-on-boot), and changing registry entries to prevent it from starting up don't work because it just removes any changes to its entries.

The machine is disconnected from the network, but the Trojan (running in the context of windows explorer) seems to want to change the trusted zone every five minutes or so (we're running Threatfire on the machine, which is how we detected the problem in the first place).

SpySweeper, Spybot, Windows Defender, and Microsoft's Malicious Software Removal tool don't see any problem.

I'm a newbie to this web site but I am an experienced computer user (software developer).

Thanks!

Hello

Please visit this web page for instructions for downloading and running ComboFix

http://www.bleepingc...to-use-combofix

This includes installing the Windows XP Recovery Console in case you have not installed it yet.

For more information on the Windows XP Recovery Console read http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314058.

Once you install the Recovery Console, when you reboot your computer, you'll see the option for the Recovery Console now as well. Don't select Recovery Console as we don't need it. By default, your main OS is selected there. The screen stays for 2 seconds and then it proceeds to load Windows. That is normal.

Post the log from ComboFix when you've accomplished that, along with a new HijackThis log.

I am having problems installing the Recovery Console. The instructions on the web site say to drag the file (downloaded from Microsoft's web site) to the ComboFix icon; I've tried this twice but it just seems to start ComboFix -- there's no message saying anything at all about the Recovery Console being installed.

Installing from the XP CD fails because the CD is the original XP (without any service packs) and there's an error about a version mismatch.

If the only reason for installing the Recovery Console is to remove files, I'd like to ask if it would be ok to use an alternative approach: the Trinity Rescue Kit (a Linux Live CD that can be used for similar purposes). I have already tested this and it seems to work and I promise I wouldn't ask you for instructions on how to use it ;-)

Thanks...

No the Recovery Console is just a security backup

Go ahead and run ComboFix.exe

I know I've broken the rules but I decided to take advantage of the Trinty Rescue Kit; I used it to remove the suspicious dll by hand, and after rebooting into windows, I removed the registry entries that referenced it.

If you are still willing to speak to me, I have attached the ComboFix and HijackThis logs (taken after I did the aforementioned cleanup) in the hope that you will tell me how things look.

Thanks for your help!!

The machine has been off the network since the infestation was originally detected.
Do you know if there's a way to download the update to a usb drive (on another machine) and use that to update the Anti-Malware installation?

I found something labelled "latest Database" on Malwarebyte's web site (http://www.malwareby.../mbam-rules.exe) . I've downloaded it and will give it a try tomorrow.

The MBAM log is clean (I've included it below).

The machine's performance was never affected by the infestation (we discovered the problem not because the machine was doing something strange or running slowly, but because Threatfire was reporting suspicious activity).

This looks like a clean bill of health to me; we will plug the machine back into the network tommorrow. Let me know if there's anything else I should do.

Thanks so much for your help and support, we really appreciate it!!

Your logs are clean

Follow these steps to uninstall Combofix and tools used in the removal of malware
  • Click START then RUN
  • Now type Combofix /u in the runbox and click OK. Note the space between the X and the U, it needs to be there.

You now need to update your Java and remove your older versions.

Please follow these steps to remove older version Java components.

* Click Start > Control Panel.
* Click Add/Remove Programs.
* Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE) in the name.
* Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.

Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE), and install it to your computer from
here




Below I have included a number of recommendations for how to protect your computer against malware infections.

* Keep Windows updated by regularly checking their website at :
http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/
This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer.

* To reduce re-infection for malware in the future, I strongly recommend installing these free programs:
SpywareBlaster protects against bad ActiveX
IE-SPYAD puts over 5000 sites in your restricted zone so you'll be protected when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren't actually innocent at all
Have a look at this tutorial for IE-Spyad here

* SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.

Make Internet Explorer more secure
  • Click Start > Run
  • Type Inetcpl.cpl & click OK
  • Click on the Security tab
  • Click Reset all zones to default level
  • Make sure the Internet Zone is selected & Click Custom level
  • In the ActiveX section, set the first two options ("Download signed and unsigned ActiveX controls) to "Prompt", and ("Initialize and Script ActiveX controls not marked as safe") to "Disable".
  • Next Click OK, then Apply button and then OK to exit the Internet Properties page.

* MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well known ad sites and other bad sites. Basically, this prevents your computer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer, meaning it will be difficult to infect yourself in the future.

* 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 pop up
blocker (as an added benefit!) that I have ever seen. If you are interested, Firefox may be downloaded from
Here

* Take a good look at the following suggestions for malware prevention by reading Tony Kleinís article 'How Did I Get Infected In The First Place'
Here

Thank you for your patience, and performing all of the procedures requested.
