Hello. My workstation recently became infected with an odd piece of adware/spyware that I can not seem to get rid of.

This program is running in the background and hidden, it does not even show up in windows task manager.

The program is called shaosk.exe

So far I have been unsuccessful at locating any information on this program on the net. If I load up security task manager, it will show up listed as an un named process id. This program spawns popus even without a browser window open. When a popup is spawned, cpu usage for this process jumps from o% to 10% and adds a few megs onto its memory usage. The process uses UDP to listen on a port (dynamic every time it starts). When I shut down the process, it starts its self back up after a few minutes.

So far I have found no references to it in the registry. My diagnosis indicates that it resides in c:\program files\comndows\shaosk.exe but that directory does not seem exist.

When searching the hard drive for "shaosk", it finds a file called SHAOSK.EXE-068C1EF3.pf in c:\windows\prefetch. When I delete this file, it turns up again after a few minutes.

I have scanned my system many times with Spybot, Adaware SE, and MS Anti Spyware beta and none of them will pick it up. My anti-virus program does not pick it up either.

All the other process running on my machine are legit as near as I have been able to discover.

Has anyone ever seen this before or know what it is?

Here is the HijackThis log. I do not see anything abnormal. Perhaps I am missing somthing?

I also just found another process wpal3dv2.exe
My system is indicating that it is in c:\windows\system32\wpal3dv2.exe but that file does not seem to exist. Similar to the Shaosk.exe. It also does not show up on any scanner. I can however see them both in STM and Active Ports. Both of them are activally listening on UDP ports (random port each time the process spawns).

Hi and welcome to GeeksToGo! My name is Sam and I will be helping you. :tazz:

Let's see what we can turn up.

Download and save backlight to your desktop. Doubleclick blbeta.exe, accept the agreement, leave [X]scan through Windows Explorer checked, click scan > next.

You'll see a list of all the items it found. There will also be a log on your desktop with the name fsbl.xxxxxxx.log (where xxxxxxx represents numbers). The application finds both bad files and legitimate ones such as "wbemtest.exe", so don't choose the rename option yet! Copy and paste the log it generated in your next reply.


=========


Please download DLLCompare

*Save it to your desktop and run it.
*Click 'Run Locate.com'to scan.
*When the scan has completed, click 'Compare'.
*When completed, click "Make a Log of What Was Found".
*Please Copy/Paste the entire contents of the logfile to this thread.

Note: If you get an error after pressing Run Locate.com:
copy autoexec.nt from c:\windows\repair\ folder to c:\windows\system32\ folder.

You may want to print out these instructions for reference, since you will have to restart your computer during the fix.

Please download AproposFix from here:
http://swandog46.gee.../aproposfix.exe

Save it to your desktop but do NOT run it yet.

Then please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following:
1) Restart your computer
2) After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
3) Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
4) Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.


Once in Safe Mode, please double-click aproposfix.exe and unzip it to the desktop. Open the aproposfix folder on your desktop and run RunThis.bat. Follow the prompts.

When the tool is finished, please reboot back into normal mode, and post a new HijackThis log, along with the entire contents of the log.txt file in the aproposfix folder.

Sam,
Aproposfix came up with some networking errors when I ran it. I was not sure if I should boot into safe with networking and run it again. networking was disabled when I ran it. If you need me to run it again with networking enabled, let me know. Here is the logs.

Your log looks clean to me! :tazz:

Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:
  • Disable and Enable System Restore. - If you are using Windows ME or XP then you should disable and reenable system restore to make sure there are no infected files found in a restore point left over from what we have just cleaned.

    You can find instructions on how to enable and reenable system restore here:

    Managing Windows Millenium System Restore

    or

    Windows XP System Restore Guide

    Renable system restore with instructions from tutorial above

  • Make your Internet Explorer more secure - This can be done by following these simple instructions:
    • From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
    • Click once on the Security tab
    • Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
    • Click once on the Custom Level button.
      • Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
      • Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
      • Change the Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable
      • Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt
      • Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt
      • Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt
      • When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
      • If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
    • Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.
  • Use an AntiVirus Software - It is very important that your computer has an anti-virus software running on your machine. This alone can save you a lot of trouble with malware in the future.

    See this link for a listing of some online & their stand-alone antivirus programs:

    Virus, Spyware, and Malware Protection and Removal Resources

  • Update your AntiVirus Software - It is imperitive that you update your Antivirus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your antivirus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.

  • Use a Firewall - I can not stress how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer. Without a firewall your computer is succeptible to being hacked and taken over. I am very serious about this and see it happen almost every day with my clients. Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly.

    For a tutorial on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones see the link below:

    Understanding and Using Firewalls

  • Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit http://www.windowsupdate.com regularly. This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.

  • Install Spybot - Search and Destroy - Install and download Spybot - Search and Destroy with its TeaTimer option. This will provide realtime spyware & hijacker protection on your computer alongside your virus protection. You should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using Spybot - Search & Destroy to remove Spyware , Malware, and Hijackers

  • Install Ad-Aware - Install and download Ad-Aware. ou should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software in conjunction with Spybot.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using Ad-aware to remove Spyware, Malware, & Hijackers from Your Computer

  • Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will added a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using SpywareBlaster to protect your computer from Spyware and Malware

  • Update all these programs regularly - Make sure you update all the programs I have listed regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.
Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.

:) :)
