    Default Click.Giftload April 2, 2011

    Spybot reveals Click.Giftload on my computer. I have read "what to do before posting" and have followed the suggestions. I have Spybot, Malwarebytes, Sophos, and Combofix loaded and have used them all in an effort to clean up my computer previously. Nothing works.
    I have Windows Vista Home, Service Pack 2. I have tried to update Windows, but it will won't let me.

    I used ERUNT to back up my computer.
    Here is my DDS log from 4-2-11:

    Click.GiftLoad: [SBI $89783858] User settings (Registry value, nothing done)

    Hi Val,

    Welcome to Safer Networking. My name is Blottedisk and I will be helping you with your malware issues.

    • Please subscribe to this topic, if you haven't already. You can subscribe by clicking the Thread Tools box to the top right of your topic title and then choosing Suscribe to this Thread (then choose Instant Notification by email). If the button says Unsuscribe from this Thread, then you are already subscribed.
    • Please avoid installing/uninstalling or updating any programs and attempting any unsupervised fixes or scans. This can make helping you impossible.

    The forum is busy and we need to have replies as soon as possible. If I haven't had a reply after 3 days I will bump the topic and if you do not reply by the following day after that then the thread will be locked due to inactivity. However, if you will be away, let us know and we will be sure to keep the thread open.

    Please follow these steps in order:

    Step 1 | Download DDS from any of the links below:

    Link 1
    Link 2
    Link 2

    • Save it to your desktop.
    • Please disable any anti-malware program that will block scripts from running before running DDS.
    • Double-Click on dds and a command window will appear. This is normal.
    • Shortly after two logs will appear:
      • DDS.txt
      • Attach.txt
    • A window will open instructing you save & post the logs.
    • Save the logs to a convenient place such as your desktop.
    • Post the contents of the DDS.txt report in your next reply.
    • Attach the Attach.txt report to your post by scroling down to the Attachments area and then clicking Browse. Browse to where you saved the file, and click Open and then click UPLOAD.

    Step 2 | Please download aswMBR to your desktop.

    • Double click the aswMBR icon to run it.
      Vista and Windows 7 users right click the icon and choose "Run as administrator".
    • Click the Scan button to start scan.
    • When it finishes, press the save log button, save the logfile to your desktop and post its contents in your next reply.

    Step 3 | Please download GMER from one of the following locations and save it to your desktop:

    Main Mirror - This version will download a randomly named file (Recommended)
    Zipped Mirror - This version will download a zip file you will need to extract first. If you use this mirror, please extract the zip file to your desktop.


    • Disconnect from the Internet and close all running programs.
    • Temporarily disable any real-time active protection so your security programs will not conflict with gmer's driver.
    • Double-click on the randomly named GMER file (i.e. n7gmo46c.exe) and allow the gmer.sys driver to load if asked.

    Note: If you downloaded the zipped version, extract the file to its own folder such as C:\gmer and then double-click on gmer.exe.

    • GMER will open to the Rootkit/Malware tab and perform an automatic quick scan when first run. (do not use the computer while the scan is in progress)
    • If you receive a WARNING!!! about rootkit activity and are asked to fully scan your NO.
    • Make sure all options are checked except:
      • IAT/EAT
      • Drives/Partition other than Systemdrive, which is typically C:\
      • Show All (This is important, so do not miss it.)

    Click the image to enlarge it

    • Now click the Scan button. If you see a rootkit warning window, click OK.
    • When the scan is finished, click the Save... button to save the scan results to your Desktop. Save the file as gmer.log.
    • Click the Copy button and paste the results into your next reply.
    • Exit GMER and re-enable all active protection when done.

    -- If you encounter any problems, try running GMER in Safe Mode.

    Thanks for your assistance. I appreciate it.

    I've attached the DDS zipped attach and the aswMBR text. I will post this and then disconnect my internet and get the GMER.
    Here is my DDS log:

    Hi Val,

    Unfortunately your machine appears to have been infected by the TDSS rootkit/backdoor infection. These kind of malwares are very dangerous. Backdoor Trojans provide a means of accessing a computer system that bypasses security mechanisms and steal sensitive information like passwords, personal and financial data which they send back to the hacker. Rootkits can hook into the Windows 32-bit kernel, and patch several APIs to hide new registry keys and files they install. Remote attackers use backdoor Trojans and rootkits as part of an exploit to to gain unauthorized access to a computer and take control of it without your knowledge.

    If you use your computer for sensitive purposes such as internet banking then I recommend you take the following steps immediately:

    • Use another, uninfected computer to change all your internet passwords, especially ones with financial implications such as banks,
      paypal, ebay, etc. You should also change the passwords for any other site you use.
    • Call your bank(s), credit card company or any other institution which may be affected and advise them that your login/password or
      credit card information may have been stolen and ask what steps to take with regard to your account.
    • Consider what other private information could possibly have been taken from your computer and take appropriate steps

    Please read the following for more information:

    How Do I Handle Possible Identify Theft, Internet Fraud and CC Fraud?
    What Should I Do If I've Become A Victim Of Identity Theft?
    Identity Theft Victims Guide - What to do

    Although the TDSS infection can be identified and removed, your PC has likely been compromised and there is no way to be sure the computer can ever be trusted again. It is dangerous and incorrect to assume that if this type of malware has been removed the computer is now secure. In some instances an infection may have caused so much damage to your system that it cannot be completely cleaned or repaired. The malware may leave so many remnants behind that security tools cannot find them. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of malware, the best course of action is to wipe the drive clean, reformat and reinstall the OS. Please read:

    When should I re-format? How should I reinstall?
    Where to draw the line? When to recommend a format and reinstall?

    Note: Attempting to reinstall Windows (repair install) without first wiping the entire hard drive with a repartition/reformat will not remove the infection. The reinstall will only overwrite the Windows files. Any malware on the system causing problems will still be there afterwards and a Repair will NOT help.

    Should you have any questions, please feel free to ask. Please let me know what you have decided to do in your next post. If you decide you want to try and clean your PC then please continue with the following instructions:

    Please double click the aswMBR icon to run it.
    Vista and Windows 7 users right click the icon and choose "Run as administrator".

    • Click the Scan button to start scan.
    • When scan finishes, press the Fix Button. Once the Fix is done, press the Save Log button and save the log to your desktop. You need to reboot your computer when its done before you do anything else, then post the log that will be on your desktop.

    Default Internet questions

    Thank you for all of the information. Looks like I've got trouble on my hands.

    I will take your advice and change all of my passwords and alert all financial institutes.

    How did the "backdoor" hacker get access and how can I prevent it from happening again, whether I clean this computer or get a new one?

    I have Sophos Anti-Virus on and it runs daily.

    I brought home my work laptop and hooked up to my home wireless. It started acting similar, redirecting my searches on the internet and booting me off. My son complains of the same thing when he visits and uses his computer.
    Makes me think my problem may start with my internet provider. My system is secured.

    I'd like to backup some of my files before I wipe out my OS and Windows. Will the virus follow my files to a jumpdrive?

    After I save a few files, I think I'd like to go ahead and try cleaning the system. I don't have anything to lose. However, I do worry about trusting this computer again with secure information.

    Thanks for your time,

    Hi Val,

    How did the "backdoor" hacker get access and how can I prevent it from happening again, whether I clean this computer or get a new one?

    Here's a good read on how to prevent infections:

    How did I get infected in the first place?

    I'd like to backup some of my files before I wipe out my OS and Windows. Will the virus follow my files to a jumpdrive?

    It depends on which files, but it is possible. If you backup your documents, pictures, spreadsheets, etc it will be ok. In any case, If you want to give it a try and clean the machine, I would recommend you to do the backup once we finish.

    After I save a few files, I think I'd like to go ahead and try cleaning the system. I don't have anything to lose. However, I do worry about trusting this computer again with secure information.

    When you feel ready to start, please create a new restore point and then go ahead with the instructions from my previous post (aswMBR).

    To create a new restore point:

    • Click Start
    • Right click on My Computer
    • Select Properties
    • From the tasks pane on the left, click System Protection
    • Select a disk (place check mark in box if it is not already checked) from the list, usually C:, and click on the Create button.
    • Type a name to describe this restore point (ex. "Before malware removal")
    • Click Create button
    • When finished, Windows opens a window stating that the restore point was created successfully.

    Remember to create a restore point before starting with aswMBR.

    Default Thank you

    Thank you for your advice. I will be out of town for the next two weeks on business and will not have time to work on my computer. If I need further assistance I will begin a new post to you. Thank you.
