infected with bedep... I think [Solved]

roughly a week ago, the computer tried to run a .exe.tmp  file, I believe it was marked 780*.exe.tmp   or something of that nature,   after  canceling it (10+ times)   I restarted the computer.   I did a quick scan, a full scan, and a power eraser scan.
the power eraser deleted that given file.

last night,  The same behavior started,   although this time marked as |Microsoft verification something.   I let it in.

I have done a quick scan, a full scan and a power erase.   Nothing but cookies detected as a threat.
However while scanning  Norton blocked   about  100+   intrusion attempts, page redirects, and had marked outgoing data.

One of the redirects was  listed as a Bedep Trojan.   Norton lists it as low risk, and claims to remove it with powereraser.

I am not seeing any headway,   the computer has been slowed to a crawl,    and I see no sign that it is working.

Norton just continuously stops intrusions, and page redirects.(6-8 / hour)  about 1/10 states bedep Trojan.

I think I am in trouble.    Thank you all.   I am on the alternate computer right now.

 

I am in the process of creating a Norton recovery disk.  to see if that works.


If there is any more information I can provide,  I am happy to do so.   I appreciate any help I can get.

Hi lets have a look see

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your Desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
  • Right click to run as administrator (XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File). When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Select additions at the bottom
  • Press Scan button.
    frst.JPG
  • It will produce a log called FRST.txt in the same directory the tool is run from.
  • Please post both logs generated.
THEN

Download aswMBR.exe ( 4.5mb ) to your desktop.
Double click the aswMBR.exe to run it.
You may be offered the option of using virtualisation, accept that
When it offers to download the virus database allow that as well
Click the "Scan" button to start scan

AswMBR%20scan.JPG


On completion of the scan click save log, save it to your desktop and post in your next reply

I have performed the fix as described.
I had also rescanned prior to the fix under fears or the first additions being incorrect
.
I will include all 3 files,   including the post fix log

 

The 2 files were created   pre fix,   the fixlog was created post fix log.
 

The 2 files    contain a LOT   of information.  like a scary amount of information.

Following the last reboot,   I have not seen a single redirect/incursion attempt.
It is going to take me a very long time looking at that fix you wrote   to figure out how it worked.
 

I am not counting the chickens yet, but I have not seen an attempt since the reboot.   you are amazing.

As I am still using two computers,   copy to clip board was not a viable option.

 

I did the scan,   it found    I think 6 items "non malware" all registry keys

 

I am cynical, and and question the risk of the keys,   but still let it delete them.
also was quite worried about it not playing nice with my other antivirus.
 

it looks like it did hat it was intended to do,  and here is the log file.

I do not think I can thank you enough.  Do you find malware works well enough as an antivirus?

MBAM is designed purely for adware type programmes, although the line between adware and virus is becoming a bit blurred

Use MBAM as a backup scanner, no need to have it running all the time


Any further problems before I tidy up ?

Glad to be of assistance :)

Subject to no further problems :)

I will remove my tools now and give some recommendations, but, I would like you to run for 24 hours or so and come back if you have any problems

Now the best part of the day ----- Your log now appears clean :thumbsup:

A good workman always cleans up after himself so..The following will implement some cleanup procedures as well as reset System Restore points:

Remove tools

Download and run Delfix
Select the options as shown
delfix.JPG


: Keep Java Updated :

WARNING: Java is the #1 exploited program at this time. The Department of Homeland Security recommends that computer users disable Java
See this article

I would recommend that you completely uninstall Java unless you need it to run an important software.
In that instance I would recommend that you disable Java in your browsers until you need it for that software and then enable it. (See How to diasble Java in your web browser and How to unplug Java from the browser)

If you do need to keep Java then download JavaRa
Run the programme and select Remove Java Runtime. Uninstall all versions of Java present
Once done then run it again and select Update Java runtime > Download and install Latest version
javara.JPG


Now that you are clean, to help protect your computer in the future I recommend that you get the following free programmes:

CryptoPrevent install this programme to lock down and prevent crypto ransome ware

CryptoPrevent.JPG

Malwarebytes

Update and run weekly to keep your system clean

Unchecky

Click on the link above to be taken to Unchecky.com
click the very large Download button.
click Save
Click Open folder
Right click on the Unchecky_setup and choose to Run as Administrator
Once open click the Install button.
Then click on Finish
Unchecky is now installed and will help you keep unwanted check boxes unchecked, this is a fire and forget programme ;)

It is critical to have both a firewall and anti virus to protect your system and to keep them updated.
