    (win 7) downloaded a possible rat, help :(
    « on: February 16, 2021, 05:06:56 PM »
    here's a scan of the files that were having fun on my pc https://www.hybrid-analysis.com/sample/8072e21d2d48c739e7537144820e4985e815e7c1b29fb83f5ba17fc6272f0fc1 not sure if they're actually malware or not, but it's lookin like it. i just want to mention that i was using that program to get an extra day out of trial software from 2001 that isn't available for purchase anymore.

    i'm using windows 7 (yes) and microsoft security essentials (yes), i generally don't need to use my antivirus because i don't tend to download random things and run them, but i haven't had the best judgement lately. mse told me three whole days later that it found and stopped 2 trojans (Skeeyah and Dynamer), i had no idea but malwarebytes didn't really pick up anything related to it.

    i dont think ive noticed anything too weird happening on my pc although the other day my pc hardcore lagged and took its sweet time signing me in, and it messed my desktop icons up in the process

    i attached the logs to this post, i'm putting the original malwarebytes log i did last night although i ran malwarebytes a second time afterwards with rootkits enabled but it didn't find anything.

    Hello and welcome to Computer Hope Forum. My name is Dave. I will be helping you out with your particular problem on your computer.

    1. I will be working on your Malware issues. This may or may not solve other issues you have with your machine.
    2. The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for this issue on this machine.
    3. If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to ask.
    4. Please DO NOT run any other tools or scans while I am helping you.
    5. It is important that you reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.
    6. Your security programs may give warnings for some of the tools I will ask you to use. Be assured, any links I give are safe.
    7. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.

    If you can't access the internet with your infected computer you will have to download and transfer any programs to the computer you're using now and transfer them to the infected computer with a CD-RW or a USB storage device. I prefer a CD because a storage device can get infected. If you use a storage device hold the shift key down while inserting the USB storage device for about 10 secs. You will also have to transfer the logs you receive back to the good computer using the same method until we can get the computer back on-line.

      Hello and welcome to Computer Hope Forum. My name is Dave. I will be helping you out with your particular problem on your computer.

      hi and thank you for replying, i had already ran all three of those and uploaded them as attachments but it looks like they never got approved. i'll paste those attachments below, but i want to add a few things that might help give more info since i think this might be a rootkit, which i've never dealt with before. i'm hoping my files can be saved if that's the case.

      first off, between the time i posted this and now, i had installed kaspersky internet cloud on my infected computer and it found that the remote registry service was enabled, but i dont know if thats a normal thing. i had also checked through my chrome extensions since antivirus programs were flagging my chrome folder despite never before doing so, and i found 'google docs offline' had been added by a third party with the permissions to read and modify all data that i copy and paste. i am certain i did not have this extension in the past but i'm not able to see the date it was added, though it's possible that could be unrelated to this specifically, the id is ghbmnnjooekpmoecnnnilnnbdlolhkhi.

      i also ran it through app.any.run and noticed under events that it had accessed files in system directories, and read their attributes before overwriting them, which you can see here if you click on process 2212 https://app.any.run/tasks/f87cff4b-f529-4d4a-80cc-b37faa33daba/. i then went through my pc to collect a couple of these files to upload it to virustotal, and while virustotal would claim they're whitelisted by microsoft, all of the related files would be malware. i then went onto a clean windows 7 virtual machine and collected the same files, which then gave me conflicting info.
      the file from my infected machine: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/83dfd0c119b20aedb07114c9d1cf9ce2dfa938d0f1070256b0591a9e2c3997fa/relations
      the file from the virtual machine: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/099177552db8cf6fd0997fa4f5eaa670c3305967feee2b6f0d160c611202a99b/detection

      anyways, here's the logs. sorry they never uploaded in my original post. adwcleaner had also claimed the chrome extension under "djflhoibgkdhkhhcedjiklpkjnoahfmg" was potentially unwanted, although i removed it at a different time.

        quick update since i was feeling unsure if i really had an issue or not, after poking around a bit i figured some things looked out of place, a lot of remote desktop/procedure services running and remote desktop/procedure dlls were injected into nearly, if not all processes. i checked wireshark and saw something was repeatedly attempting to establish and request something to transfer to a server on ftp related ports, so i checked my ports and among a slew of shady ports being open, i also find 1337 and 13337, although i guess whats especially telling is one shows its foreign address as ingreslock, which is on the same port that keeps requesting a reply in wireshark.

        i had also tested more files on my computer vs known good ones, the scan i linked in my last post as the "clean" was a slight mistake however its the same scenario with a valid signed file. other things i've found had changed were files like notepad, dism, etc. sfc seems to have been tampered with, on a virtual machine it refused to work at all and on my pc it claims things are fine.

        at this point i know there is a definite infection and every scanner i have previously tried has been unable to detect a thing. i'm not sure exactly what data it's been trying to get and what it mightve possibly gotten already in the span of 3 days, not sure what i should do or if i should even bother doing anything. i haven't been in a situation like this since i was a small kid lol

        There is no evidence that your computer is infected. Can you please run a scan with MSE?

        Research how the software you downloaded to reset the trial works, it does open ports on the computer to allow their server to make changes each time you run the software.

        So if you have already un installed the program and the ports are still open. Then I would use system  restore to take the computer  back before you installed the program.

        Then do another test with wire shark or Gibsons research "shields up" and check those ports are closed.
         
        You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.
        ― John Bunyan
