Propagation

A worm can spread via removable drives. It writes its executable and creates "autorun.inf" scripts on all removable drives. The autorun script will execute the Backdoor's file once a user opens a drive's folder in Windows Explorer.


Remove it with Ad-Aware

  1. Click (here) to download and install Ad-Aware Free Antivirus.
  2. Update the definition files.
  3. Run a full scan of your computer.


Manual removal*

  1. Terminate malicious process(es) (How to End a Process With the Task Manager):

    86b508e9c98c483e87fd9b8d8a71dc68.exe:956
    1.exe:1552
    1.exe:332

  2. Delete the original Backdoor file.
  3. Delete or disinfect the following files created/modified by the Backdoor:

    %WinDir%\InstallDir\Server.exe (673 bytes)
    %Documents and Settings%\%current user%\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows\--((Mutex))--.dat (314 bytes)
    D:\Client.exe (17849 bytes)
    D:\ggggg.exe (2039 bytes)
    D:\1.exe (2039 bytes)
    D:\2.jpg (3918 bytes)
    %WinDir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\CONFIG\enterprisesec.config.cch.new (600 bytes)
    %WinDir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\CONFIG\security.config.cch.new (600 bytes)

  4. Delete the following value(s) in the autorun key (How to Work with System Registry):

    [HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
    "HKLM" = "%WinDir%\InstallDir\Server.exe"

    [HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
    "HKCU" = "%WinDir%\InstallDir\Server.exe"

  5. Find and delete all copies of the worm's file together with "autorun.inf" scripts on removable drives.
  6. Reboot the computer.

*Manual removal may cause unexpected system behaviour and should be performed at your own risk.
