injecting browser helper objects remotely =?
Some system monitoring program gave me this message
which means that it is executing the function whose name is c which is exported by jkhfd.dll
A new startup program has been detected
I dissassembled the file(jkhfd.dll) and found the following list of exported functions-
(the function c, as I suspected, is exported)
Some sysinternals tools told me that the above dll is there(injected?) as the browser helper objects
From the above list of exported functions, most are implemented by the dll creator herself. But the win32 function(s) like LogonUser(which attempts to logon,probably remotely) has aroused my suspicion.
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Browser Helper Objects
What's the prefix LsaAp means ?
Since the dissassembler can't locate the functions in the dissassembly, please suggest some other way of reversing the dll ?
Any further info on this method of attack, that is, how can someone remotely inject BHOs(browser helper objects) ?

If I remember correctly to the machine I was cleaning 2 days ago.... That is the latest incarnation of the virtumonde trojan. If so, your gonna have fun cleaning it out as safe mode isnt enough. It makes copies of itself to programs. ie ccapp.exe would be infected and running but ccapp .exe is the original and not running. Notice the space.
Sysinternals helps to root these out with process mon and autoruns
Before i forget, there should be an exe file with the same name as that dll hiding somewhere probably another dll and its exe too.
Run a virus/spyware scan.

its trying to get your login passwords to root your system.

From what I have seen "Ap" generally means "application"
Here is some more information about your malware:
I looks as if Darksnake is right and this is a new variant that has just surfaced.
I believe that it actually tries to protect itself against dissassembly, which would explain the results you got?

A co-worker of mine cleaned his portable by connecting to it with another PC, because as previously mentioned, it doesn't help by doing it in safe mode. Normally this co-worker wouldn't bother, but he was intrigued on how this happened to him.
Back when I was a boy, we carved our own IC's out of wood.

From what I saw it was looking for network drives?
I would not really want to connect that to another machine............ I guess I would try something like the UBCD as a first shot?..............unless I was using a linux distro on the cleaning device?
