Life in the Malware Trenches – Killing Worm.Win32.NetSky and Internet-Security 2010

Guest writer PJ Liberatore (aka as Cappydawg, to many of my fellow bloggers), takes you into the real world of virus removal, by relating her successful experience in removing Worm.Win32.NetSky, a component of the insidious scareware application, Internet Security 2010.

Recently, I had the experience of helping a co-worker with a virus on his Netbook.  He had mentioned to me, that his Netbook was popping up all kinds of strange messages, stating he was infected with numerous Trojans – so he was going to take it to the “geek people”.  I offered to take a look at it for him instead, and maybe save him some money.

When I turned on the Netbook, right away I noticed it took much too long to boot.  I made sure I had turned off the WIFI connection so that it wouldn’t go out to the net, and attempt to download more suspicious files. When it finally reached the desktop, it told me:

Security Warning! Worm.Win32.NetSky detected on your machine.

Immediately, another screen popped up listing more Trojans! This screen looked suspicious to me, since my co-worker had McAfee Antivirus installed and yet, the screen read “Internet Security 2010“.

At this point, I had 3 screens open, all of them warning me of these potential hazards on this Netbook.  One of these screens started up Internet Explorer (I wasn’t worried, since I had WIFI off), and I noticed the web address read: buyinternet-security 2010.com. I knew then, I had a bugger of a virus staring at me.

Before I show you how I got this cleared up, let me tell you a little bit about this virus.

Internet Security 2010 gets installed via malware, and will quickly setup to start every time Windows is booted.  It will also load a number of Trojans on your computer.  Once infected, the next time you boot up your computer you will be notified that you are infected with Worm.Win32.Netsky. This is exactly what happened on the computer I was trying to fix.

What makes the virus a real bugger is, it blocks certain applications and when that happens, you get the warning “File is infected”. It will then recommend that you activate your antivirus.

But it is really trying to get you to buy Internet Security 2010.  DON’T DO IT! Second, another Trojan that comes with this virus warns you to purchase a codec called, VSCoded Pro.  DON’T DO IT!  All this virus wants is your credit card number, and whoever is behind it, will have a field day with it.

Now that you have a little information about this virus, let me tell you what I did to remove it.

My first step was to research this on the internet using my own Laptop. I began my search with “buy internet security 2010.com”.  I choose a few articles from the results, and read through them to get some advice on squishing this bugger.

It recommended in the articles, that I download a program called Rkill.  Rkill is a small, freeware program, developed by Microsoft MVP, Lawrence Abrams, that helps stop malware processes; it’s also portable.

It’s available in four file formats; .exe, .com, .scr and .pif.  If you are wondering why four different formats, it’s because malware is getting smarter all the time – some malware can block the execution of an anti-malware tool executable file. For more information on this tool, check out Technibble’s write up.

I ran Rkill first, to stop the process of this virus. It took a while, but it did stop the process. I then pulled out my little USB tool drive, where I keep some of my favorite antispyware and malware tools, and downloaded the latest free versions of SuperAnti-spyware, and MalwareBytes Antimalware.

Next, I ran MalwareBytes in quick scan mode, and sure enough it found about 40 different Trojans. I cleared those, and then ran SuperAnti-Spyware in full scan mode.  It also found a few, so I proceeded with the removal process thru SuperAnti-Spyware. I then decided to run MalwareBytes again, but in full system scan, just to make sure nothing was missed in the quick scan. It found nothing.

Now feeling pretty confident that it was under control, I rebooted the machine. It booted quicker, and had no messages stating that Worm.Win32.NetSky was on the machine, or any other annoying pop ups. For added protection I ran Dr. Web Antivirus and it found nothing. One more re-boot, and all was good.

Since I was at it, I updated his antivirus definitions, and installed the free edition of SuperAntispyware.

It’s been 2 weeks now, and all is going well.

By doing a little research on the web, and taking it step by step, I was successful in removing this virus and, helped a co-worker save a little money.

PC Tools Internet Security 2010 Review:

It’s now more difficult than ever, to enjoy the benefits of the Internet as it was designed to be experienced. Unfortunately, the present Internet is a world that is full of cyber criminals, scam and fraud artists, and worse. A world that reeks of tainted search engine results, malware infected legitimate websites, drive-by downloads and bogus security software.

Regular readers of Tech Thoughts are familiar with this advice: “To ensure maximum safety on the Internet, it’s important to have layered defenses in the ongoing fight against malware”.

For example, layered defenses on one of my home Windows 7 machines, until recently, consisted of the following PC Tools free applications – Firewall  Plus, ThreatFire, Spyware Doctor , and Free AntiVirus. So, when I was given the opportunity to test drive PC Tools Internet Security 2010, which combines all of these antimalware tools, I jumped at the chance.

I’ve been testing PC Tools Internet Security 2010 since early December 2009, in order to get to the heart of the matter – does this application work in the “real world?”

I’m pleased to report that PC Tools Internet Security 2010 does work in the “real world”. By combining the highly regarded technologies of Spyware Doctor, a highly efficient Firewall, an antivirus engine, and ThreatFire’s heuristic detection engine, PC Tools has built a suite of applications that provides powerful Anti-Spyware, Anti-Virus, Firewall and Spam protection.

Experience has taught me that typical computer users require a simple, intuitive, and easy to use interface in order to get the most out of a security suite, and PC Tools Internet Security provides that. The application is straightforward to setup, customize and run as the following graphics illustrate.

You’ll notice that the install applet recognized existing PC Tools software already on the test machine.

Safety Antispyware and Internet Security 2010 – Panda Security Takes a Look

Courtesy of Panda Security: This week’s PandaLabs report looks at two new fake antiviruses and a Trojan.

Safety Antispyware and Internet Security 2010 are malicious programs that try to pass themselves off as legitimate software applications in order to steal users’ money by tricking them into believing that they will eliminate threats that actually do not exist.

Safety Antispyware: Safety Antispyware tricks users by warning them their computers are infected by (non-existent) threats, prompting them to buy a program to remove them.

This program can be downloaded from the vendor’s site. The link can also reach users through spam messages, fraudulent Web pages, etc. The fake antivirus shows an icon similar to that of real antivirus programs. Once installed, the program interface opens and runs a full system scan looking for malware.

image

Then, it shows a series of messages prompting the targeted user to buy the product. If the user decides to follow the program instructions to get rid of the
‘threats’, they will be asked to enter an activation code and be redirected to a website to buy the product.

image

Internet Security 2010: Once run, Internet Security 2010 scans the computer for malware. However, this is a fake scan that always reports that the computer is infected. Then, it offers users the possibility of disinfecting the computer.

image

As the fake antivirus version is supposedly a trial version, users are first requested to buy the antivirus license. To this end, the malware opens the user’s Internet browser on the fake antivirus purchase page.

To reassure users that the purchase is safe and the antivirus is legitimate, it shows certificates of authenticity and claims to have been tested by McAfee. It even offers the antivirus license for a long time, apparently at a good price.

image

If the user decides not to purchase the antivirus, it will keep running and displaying warnings about the threats the user is exposed to if they remain infected and do not update the antivirus. These warnings are displayed in two ways: through warnings on the toolbar or on-screen pop-up messages.

For more information about this type of malware read “The Business of Rogueware“, a report on fake antivirus programs written by Luis Corrons and Sean-Paul Correll, PandaLabs researchers.

Banker.MAI: Banker.MAI is banker malware aimed at stealing banking data, credentials and/or credit card details when users try to log in to their online banking services.

This malware goes memory resident and does not show any symptoms that warn of its presence on the affected computer. The malware works in the background, waiting to be run, and send or receive data.

Banker.MAI arrives as a self-extracting RAR file attached to an email message, usually with the subject “Comprovante Deposito-29092009”. This email message appears to come from a legitimate banking institution, and asks the user to open the attached file to enter some necessary data. If the user opens the file they will become infected. The malware creator is notified via email whenever a computer is successfully infected.

More information about these and other malicious codes is available in the Panda Security Encyclopedia. You can also follow Panda Security’s online activity on its Twitter and PandaLabs blog.

Safety Antispyware and Internet Security 2010 removal Instructions:

If you feel you have the necessary skills, and you want to try your hand at removal, then by all means do so.

The following free resources can provide tools and the advice you will need to attempt removal.

411 Spyware – a site that specializes in malware removal. I highly recommend this site.

Bleeping Computer – a web site where help is available for many computer related problems, including the removal of rogue software. This is another site I highly recommend.

Malwarebytes, a very reliable anti-malware company, offers a free version of Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware, a highly rated anti-malware application which is capable of removing many newer rogue applications.

SmitFraudFix, available for download at Geekstogo is a free tool that is continuously updated to assist victims of rogue security applications.

What you can do to reduce the chances of infecting your system with rogue, or malicious, software.

Be careful in downloading freeware or shareware programs. Spyware is occasionally concealed in these programs. Download this type of program only through reputable web sites such as Download.com, or sites that you know to be safe.

Consider carefully the inherent risks attached to peer-to-peer (P2P), or file sharing applications.

Install an Internet Browser add-on that provides protection against questionable or unsafe websites. My personal favorite is Web of Trust, an Internet Explorer/FireFox add-on, that offers substantial protection against questionable, or unsafe websites.

Do not click on unsolicited invitations to download software of any kind.
