Smitfraud.c and qfind.net problems

I have been infected with smitfraud.c and need help.

After the infection, I ran this spyware removal software called xoftspy I purchased a few days ago online. (I hope this software is the real thing and not like the stinking iGuard software that magically loaded itself on my machine.) It identified several files and I deleted and quarantined them.

I then ran the McAfee virus scanner.

It quarantined some malicious program, which I deleted, and identified a "pup" (whatever that is...) in a file called boot.exe. I tried to delete boot.exe and clean boot.exe and the software would not let me delete it and it said it could not be cleaned. I gather this is a system file I should not mess with.

Then I searched online for smitfraud.c and saw your site postings on this nasty thing. I uninstalled iGuard immediatly and deleted the wp.bmp from the c:\ directory. Now I have a nice black wallpaper!

One thing I noticed right away after the infection is that Internet Explorer redirects itself to Qfind.net and says I have spyware called stealthSWs114.h!dll on port #33299 and absolutly must buy one of their software solutions to fix my problem. I would like to qfind them and....

Needless to say I thought xoftspy and McAfee would intercept this stuff. It really sucks that using the internet has come to this.

I read one posting that said to uninstall virtual maid so I did that. That got rid of a majic toolbar in Internet Explorer that had links to some online dataing service and iGuard.

As someone else recommended, I modified the folders to show hidden files, then ran hijackthis. Here is the results of the scan:

After running hijackthis, I saw all the references to Qfind, but was afraid to go any further deleting stuff on my own. I don't know much about the registry and would hate to damage my machine any worse, since I don't have a very recent backup of my hard drive. Lesson learned!

I haven't tried to run many programs since my infection, and was very happy to see that Outlook worked so I could mail you a posting.

(One program that is not working right is DiskKeeper. When I tried to analyze my hard drive it stopped and gave me some error message I forgot to write down.)

I also read that you can restore XP to an earlier date and it will fix everyting. I presume this would require a backup of xp that I foolishly don't have.

Please help if you can...

P.S.

I imagine Dell is spying on me too, since I am not even the adminstrator of my own machine. This is a sad state of affairs. Would I need to re-format and install all the software to make myself the admin of my own machine?

I do have a data backup that is a few months old, but I would really hate to have to start over with my XPS.

I opened up the McAfee virus scan program and found that the name of the suspect quarantined file was count.jar-6699b1e62dcf2540.zip. It could not be cleaned, so I sent the report on to McAfee and deleted the file. :tazz:

Hi SpamHater and welcome to Geeks to Go

Please read these instructions carefully and print them out! Be sure to follow ALL instructions!

Go to Start > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs and remove the following programs, if found:

Security IGuard
Virtual Maid
Search Maid


Exit Add/Remove Programs.

*IMPORTANT* Be sure you know how to VIEW HIDDEN FILES

Press CTRL ALT DELETE to open Windows Task Manger. Click on the Processes tab and end the following processes:

Security iGuard.exe

Exit Task Manager.

*Click Here to download Killbox by Option^Explicit.
*Extract the program to your desktop and double-click on its folder, then double-click on Killbox.exe to start the program.
*In the killbox program, select the Delete on Reboot option.
*In the field labeled Full Path of File to Delete enter the file paths listed below ONE AT A TIME (EXACTLY as it appears, please double check to make sure! I would just copy each file path and paste it in the field) MAKE SURE TO ENTER ALL FILE PATHS!:

C:\wp.exe
C:\wp.bmp
C:\Windows\sites.ini
C:\Windows\popuper.exe
C:\Windows\System32\helper.exe
C:\Windows\System32\intmonp.exe
C:\Windows\System32\msmsgs.exe
C:\Windows\System32\ole32vbs.exe
C:\Windows\system32\msole32.exe


Press the button that looks like a red circle with a white X in it after each one. When it asks if you would like to delete on reboot, press the YES button, when it asks if you want to reboot now, press the NO button. Do this after each one until you have entered the LAST file path I have listed above. After that LAST file path has been entered press the YES button at both prompts so that your computer restarts. If you recieve an error message "PendingRenameOperation...." and your computer doesn't restart, please restart it manually.

While your computer is restarting, tap the F8 key continually until a menu appears. Use your up arrow key to highlight Safe Mode, then hit enter.

Make sure you can view hidden files.

Using Windows Explorer, delete the following (please do NOT try to find them by "search" because they will not show up that way)

FOLDERS to delete (in bold) if found:

C:\Program Files\Search Maid
C:\Program Files\Virtual Maid
C:\Windows\System32\Log Files <-WILL be there!
C:\Program Files\Security IGuard

Reboot into normal mode.

*Download and install Registrar Lite version 2.00
*Double click the purple Registrar Lite icon on your desktop.
*Copy the line below and paste it into the "Address" field (located at the top) of the program:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies

*Click the "Go" button.
*It will take you into the "Policies" folder.
*Locate the "System" folder (in the right panel)
*If found, right-click on the System folder and go to Delete
*Be very careful that you only delete the System folder that is inside the Policies folder.

Reboot your computer again.

1.) Download the Hoster from HERE Press "Restore Original Hosts" and press "OK". Exit Program.

2.) Download: http://www.mvps.org/.../DelDomains.inf
To use: right-click and select: Install (no need to restart)
Note: This will remove all entries in the "Trusted Zone" and "Ranges" also.

3.) Download, install, and run CleanUp!

4.) Run this online virus scan: ActiveScan - Save the results from the scan!

[*] Create a new folder for HJT please, Go to your C: drive, Right click New, Folder, Name it HJT and move HJT into this folder please

Post a new HiJackThis log.

Thanks for the quick reply Don77, you are much appreciated.

I followed the instructions you provided. One little problem I had was the link to killbox in your instructions was no good. I downloaded it off the web and ran it as you dedesribed. I got the error message you mentioned and rebooted manually.

The only other problem I had was with ActiveScan. It would not download to my machine and I tried it several times. I resorted to scanning my machine with the latest McAfee virus scanner and it came up with no viruses.

    Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis.

  • Reboot into Safe Mode: please see here if you are not sure how to do this.


    Using Windows Explorer, locate the following files/folders, and delete them:

    C:\Windows\System32\msmsgs.exe
    C:\Program Files\Security iGuard\Security iGuard.exe

    Exit Explorer, and reboot as normal afterwards.

    Open kilbox again
    In the killbox program, select the Delete on Reboot option.
    *In the field labeled Full Path of File to Delete enter the file paths listed below ONE AT A TIME (EXACTLY as it appears, please double check to make sure! I would just copy each file path and paste it in the field) MAKE SURE TO ENTER ALL FILE PATHS!:

    C:\Windows\System32\msmsgs.exe

    Press the button that looks like a red circle with a white X in it after each one. When it asks if you would like to delete on reboot, press the YES button, when it asks if you want to reboot now, press the NO button. Do this after each one until you have entered the LAST file path I have listed above. After that LAST file path has been entered press the YES button at both prompts so that your computer restarts. If you recieve an error message "PendingRenameOperation...." and your computer doesn't restart, please restart it manually.
Post back a fresh HijackThis log and we will take another look.

The messenger won't go away, now it opens and prompts me to log in when my machine starts up.

The qfind stuff has gone away and my computer seems normal, except diskkeeper is not working.

Nice job your log is clean !
How is it running ?
Please use the following suggestion to help prevent reinfection

Download the following program, For keeping crap off your system to begin with
Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted pests. Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox. Restrict the actions of potentially dangerous sites in Internet Explorer.
Download Spyware Blaster

Keep Ad-aware and Spybot handy, Check them for updates prior to running and run them weekly
Same with your Anti Virus,

For an added check run an online virus scan, you can use one of the 2 below,
TrendMicro's HouseCall
ActiveScan

Be sure and give the Temp folders a cleaning out now and then as well, Make sure after you clean your Temp files to empty out your Recycle bin as well.
For ease use the following program
Download and install Cleanup
Run "Cleanup" and when it has finished, Reboot

Remeber to Check Windows for updates

Probably a good time to create a new restore point See Here Name it clean or something like that,

Don77-

My machine has been working fine since your last post. The only thing is the stinking windows messenger keeps popping up after a reboot. I unchecked the box that tells it to start up, but it does it anyway.

I made a new restore point as you suggested. Thanks so much for your advice on this. It was quite a procedure to get my machine cleaned but your instructions were straight foreward and easy to understand.

I will conusume an alcoholic beverage in your honor - here's to you and all of the geeks at GTG! ;)
