    Packets in are 10x packets out

    Hello all:

    I am extremely new to both computers and security. unfortunately, the web doesnt wait for one to become familiar with things before getting hit... I am running Microsoft XP, and surf the web with Internet Explorer.

    I was surfing the web a few days ago, and one of the pages that came up was a trojan. i caught it (i thought) before it got into my comp, and I thought I deleted it. But now my packets out are 10 times my packets in, in my network connection status.

    I have AVG, and have run it 3 times, once in safe mode. I have ad aware and spybot, and have run those as well. Finally, I have kerio firewall, and have always had that running.

    I checked my Kerio intrusions, and have found several things:

    BACKDOOR trojan active trojancow
    trojan probe orifice
    trojan backdoor construction
    DDOS shaft synflood incoming

    a bunch of SCAN things, from nmap to webtrends

    a plethora of BACKDOOR trojans, from yetanother to Voodoo to portalofdoom.
    finally, there were severa attempts to remote activation bind.

    in the vast majority of things, the reference URL was www.whitehats.com/info/ID####
    the other common reference URL was www.cve.mitre.org
    there were several 4 digit numbers used.

    Aside from the incoming packet thing, my comp has no problems. I did not have the latest updates from Microsoft, but I have them now.

    updating was a very good start. You may want to try housecall.trendmicro.com It is one of the best virus scanners I know of. Also download stinger (just google it, it is a mcafee product that has saved me tons of time and agrovation in the past) both are free and both are awesome. Make sure all your anti malware software is up to date and run thoe two scanners. run stinger in safe mode and re run adaware and spybot in safe mode also. After all that is done, if the problem still continues download hijackthis and post the log here and some of us can help you out with what to delete.
    Everyone is going to die, I am just as good of a reason as any.

    As long as the intrusions have been logged by Kerio, you have nothing to worry about - it's the ones that Kerio didn't detect you should worry about

    The reference URL is just a link to more information on the attack.

    In your case, what I would do first is delete all Kerio rules, and start all over. Any time something requests a connection, look it up or ask for advice (look at what it's trying to connect to - look up the IP address). In addition to that, follow XTC46's advice

    And run a trojan scanner (http://www.agnitum.com/tauscan for example).

    Use Firefox

    ...surf the web with Internet Explorer...
    Hi RamsestheGreat, have u checked out Firefox at http://********firefox.com or somebody recommended you using IE

    Use firefox and get rid of most of spyware/malware problems.

    Yes, it certainly sounds as if "ET is phoning home"

    Get Ewido, and the Microsoft anti-spyware beta.

    Update everything then re-boot into safe mode and run them.

    Be warned, AVG, in common with a lot of AVs is not very good at detecting spyware and trojans. Hence the need to run specialist products in safe mode.

    Good luck

    If your machine is compromised you need to reinstall it and restore carefully from backups.

    If you don't have a hardware firewall, be sure to install the updates before connecting to the internet; this is tricky if you have to connect to the internet to obtain them - ask a friend (who has not had their machine compromised) to burn the SP2 and latest updates on to a CD for you, so you can install them after you reinstall but before you connect to the internet (of course, run Windows Update too, once connected, to get any more recent ones).

    OK, SO here's an update.

    I did all of the above suggestions. The only thing found was something that dealtwith Internet Explorer. I fixed that, but the problem persists.

    I guess I will download the hackerlog and see if that provides any illumination...

    Thanks for the advice, everyone. It was very appreciated.

    you hijackthis log looks clean to me except 1 entry

    Extra context menu item: &eurekster Toolbar search - res://C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files\eurekster-2.10.dll/SEARCH.HTML

    This search bar has been identified as nasty. Anyway looking at your hijackthis log it looks good except this i would advise you too creat new rules for your firewall something what negative said.

    I have saved analysis of your log at
    Parth Maniar,

    *Thank you GOD*

    Greater the Difficulty, SWEETER the Victory.

    Believe in yourself.
