PostSubject: Trojan horse Gneric10.tyx -- Ctfmona   Sun May 11, 2008 4:16 am

Brief:

This virus I have latley come accross srewed my computer.
This virus is the Ctfmona virus and is in the form of Generic10 Trojan.

This Virus can be picked up quickly by simply clicking a link that has the virus activex.

Popup blockers do nothing against this and neither do the activex warnings.

How it acts and is it dangerous:

Yes this virus is pretty damn well dangerous, If caught, The virus automatically disables your firewall making it unusable, It then quickly duplicates hundreds of more viruses on to the infected pc,
After this the virus makes a backup copy of itself to your BIOS meaning a simple reformat of your hardrive will not do the trick.
This copy is done by another virus duplicated by the original virus, I have belive it was a virus named : count[1].php.
After about 10 minuets after infection you get messages popping up stating the following:

Pornographic content detected on your pc download {x} removal program to remove

or

Illigall pornographic content detected on your computer please download {name here} porn remover to protect you and maybe even your marrage.

These are just 2 of hundreds of popups that popup every 3 or so minuets.
Oh and just as you think this is as bad as it can get theres more, It uses its copy in the BIOS that I told you about earlier to edit the Bios to make
your computer unbootable.

The acctual ctfmona virus itself is not doing any of this, the ctfmona virus downloads all the other viruses, causing the other problems, while allowing remote access to your computer allowing the hacker to take personal information from your PC.

So how can I get rid of it

Well there is no point in even trying anti-virus, anti-spyware or antimalware programs to try and remove it, I tryed running 4 at the same time I ran:

AVG Free
Spybot search and destroy
Nortan free scan
malware-remover

These all picked uparound about 100 or so all together I told them all to remove all of the viruses they found they all siad it had been competed successfully but still the problem continued.

So I used 3 simple steps to remove the virus this inclued having to reformat my comp.

Step:

1. Backup any information that has not come form your windows foler onto a pendrive oor external harddrive (This one is an abvious)

2.Restart your Pc pressing [F2] Default to go into setup menu, Now search around on the dell bios there should be a button to reset to defaults and if there is you just click this and save changes, if not then you will need to flash your bios, sreach up on google for this as I do not have the time to explain this.

3. After you have done this do not boot back into windows as the virsu will just copy itself straight back onto the BIOS you just reset, You need to insert your windows XP cd and chosse the option install windows (or somthink along this line), then choose the option to intall frsh copy.
After this you will get a box will some partitions in it, format the partitions unless there is one that seems to be small size that does not have the extention "unpartitioned space"

After you have done this just follow the steps and reinstall windows and everything should work as good as new.

Nasty. Funny though; Trojan Horses aren't normally used to be freakin' annoying, just to, you know, be there pretending not to be there and just like transmitting passwords etc back to the people who sent it.

Hmm. well, okay , i just hope i don't get it 'cuz like, I have a few things that i dont want to put back on my pc.. I.e. Wow ARRGHH soo many patches xD

Oh, are you using XP or Vista? because it might affect what you're using, XP viruses don't work on vista as far as i know.

Alot of newer Xp viruses do work on vista no matter what people say.
The reason some viruses don't woek is beacuse the vista's tempory file, windows files ect... are in differant places.

LoL, that virus is troublesome but firstly you should not download anything you dont know about and secondly anything that is downloaded should instantly be detected by your Internet protection system and immediately quarantined, if that doesnt happen then your "Internet protection System" is pathetic and should be changed with a better one. I have encountered this virus before once on my computer which thanks to my Internet protection system was no problem whatsoever and I have also encountered this virus on my friends computer, he decided not to install an antivirus program and i simply destroyed the virus by deleting the viruses registry values and program files, only took me an hour......................................

Ok,
You may of made a mistake or may be just stupid if you had read my post I clearly stated that this is a --->boot sector virus<--- now if you know your computers you would know that these type of virues are basicly undetectable! And secondly the active X on the web page it was encoded on bypassed the windows XP authent service and pop-up blocker.
So please read up on you facts before you post

Thanks

Kieron

P.s - I am using AVG a well known safe virus scanner and resident protector, Now surly you should know that AVG can pick up most viruses APART FROM BOOT SECTORS!
