# I Need Malware

## Recommended Posts

I have an clean xp computer, currently unused, that I would love to infect. I would like to fill it up with as much crap as possible, then practice cleaning it. Any suggestions to where I can find some nasty stuff would be appreciated. I am to impatient to surf the web using bad practices, that is probably what I will end up having to do.

lol hi shanenin. This is something that lots of people (including myself) face. Its even harder when you are looking for a specific infection! Anyway, there are people/places that have access to many malware files, but they only open their databases to people they know and trust. I don't even have access to most of them. Shoot me a PM and I can give you some sites to hit that should infect you right up.

I have been installing anything and everything like a crazed mad man. I am still not getting any popups. grrr.

I came up with a great plan. I am going to let my kids use this computer to do anything. I am going to keep IE on low security settings, and let them install whatever they like. They won't know what to do with themselves.

This will be a big treat for them. I currently donot let them use IE, firefox only. The are running on limited accounts. I pretty much do not let them install anything, even with my approval.

My only thought about not doing this is, they might forget when they are on the "good" computer.

Oh, yeah, Shanenin! Didn't know you had kids. That's the ticket!

And Limewire, too. But, MommaLiz says you have to tell the kids, no pron!

Sweepstakes.com comes up on a Google Search I've read that Poker Party is a nasty. Oh! Gator and Wild Tangent.

Of course,remove all protection first.

A Google search for warez would work.

I disabled all of spysweeper shields which prevent infections. I did let spy sweeper run, but this is what I have left over. This is kind of a before hjt log.

The log isn't too infected. Be careful with new.net thought, if you remove it wrong, it can kill your internet connection. It appears the file I sent you isn't in there.. One of your scans must have killed it.

##### Share on other sites

spy sweeper needed to rid that one(the one you sent) at reboot. It seems to be a pretty good program.

##### Share on other sites

Yep, SpySweeper is great!

##### Share on other sites

When I try and clean a clients computer I usually run spy sweeper first. It normally is not able to remove a lot of stuff.

For testing on my home machine it has done well. It only has not been able to remove stareware, plus a few things it did not even detect.

I reinstalled the trojan then just did a before and after of my hjt log. I noticed this new entry

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [oyspwe] C:\WINDOWS\system32\ziqfcw.exe r

this must be from the trojan. Would you say any 04 that is in the system32 directory would be suspicious?

Suspicious, Yes. Definately bad? NO. Any legit program could drop something there - however, they usually use their own folder.

I pretty much just used add/remove progrmas to dleete a bunch of stuff. Just curious, if epolvy always changes its name, you can you tell if you have it?

Would you what for changed 04s at reboot?

This is the trojan. It is a random named O4 with a random named file attached. There will also be a random process (sme name as the file) running in the process list. These all change on reboot. there is also a stary r that appears at the end of the line.

as of now, is the preferred way to remove this trojan adaware the the vx2 plugin? Are you trying to make a simple tool that does not have the need to install adaware and the plugin?

##### Share on other sites

Actually shane, this tool is more of a learning experience for myself. As you saw, this trojan can be easily removed with SpySweeper. Ewido will also get it, and yes, AdAware with the VX2 plugin also get it. I'm just doing this to understand how the infection works, and what methods are done (whether by scan or manually) to remove it.

I also like a project to learn. cool :-)

by the way, what method do you use to suspend a process?

##### Share on other sites

I include the file process.exe with the batch file. What this process.exe does is adds the ability to the command prompt the execute process actions. For example,

process -s wordpad.exe

Matt

that sounds easy enough

##### Share on other sites

when I try and run that command using cmd.exe(xp commmand line), it says the command "process" is not available. Are you sure that will work in a batch file?

##### Share on other sites

you need process.exe for it to work, I can send it to you if youd like
