    (?)'s about Bubbel

    I have this trojan in my computer called Bubbel!
    I'm guessing someone sent it through ICQ to me before i was familuar with formats. Well anyway i just found it using
    http://scan.sygatetech.com/pretrojanscan.html which was recommented by Victorkaum (thanks).
    Is this easy to remove?
    If it is, could you give a simple instruction?
    How concerned should i be?
    I guess thats it.
    Any other comments about this are welcome.
    Thank you.

    Thanks but it seems i have another problem!
    It tells me to Remove the windows key in the registry located at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Runservices
    but the windows key isnt there, but there is one there that looked very suspicious. Its says it is a scheduling Agent
    and under the data it just says "mstask.exe" Where as all the others data is longer and more descriptive .
    Does anyone know if this is supposed to be there?

    then it looks like you aren't infected by bubbel
    but I must say that I did't see this trojan so all my information are from some inet sites (use google.com to find more about it if you want)

    And are you using scheduling or not?

    See...I scanned my pc for trojans at
    http://scan.sygatetech.com/pretrojanscan.html
    and it said i had it, bbut then i looked in the registry and the windows key wasnt there....so i was thinking maybe it had disguised
    itself or it had been renamed to mstask.exe
    but i figured out that that has nothing to do with it.
    No i dont used scheduling, well i dont think i do.
    Thanks for your help.

    Yes I see. But I don't think that this trojan is able to do such things as you described. And is bubbel.exe in your windows system directory? Mayby you could also try some other scan.

    But again I have only read about it and never seen it. So maybe I can't help you

    yeah i will try more scans......no it isnt in the directory
    maybe it was just the scan and from what i hear this trojan isnt really anything to worry about. Anyway, Zonealarm keeps it from being accessed so i should be ok
    thanks....and yes you helped....thanks alot sun7dots

    Hey 7raviz^~ ,

    the scan at sygatetech only checks for open ports... so it could be that behind that open port a trojan is listening or it could be something else. Most of the time SK's use the default ports from the trojan but it could be that the SK did not...so it could be another trojan modified to be recognized as Bubbel. However that's not very common...

    I recommend that you try to close all ports you don't need and that you do some virusscan.

    registry etims to search for:

    HK_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

    HK_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce

    HK_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices

    HK_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServicesOnce

    HK_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

    HK_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce

    HK_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices

    HK_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServicesOnce

    I have forgotten something:

    Bubbel is written in visual basic and shipped with a standard installer, it has the following files
    Files:
    bubbel.exe
    bubbel.bl_
    bubbel.sck
    bubbel.the
    bubbel.bbl
    readme.txt

    After infection, the files are renamed and placed in windows\sys\
    bubbel.bbl to msvbvm50.dll
    bubbel.bl_ to msinet.ocx
    bubbel.the to bubbel.exe
    bubbel.sck to mswinsck.ocx
