Summary:

Banker. Steals data relating to online banking systems, e-payment systems and credit card systems.
Backdoor. Malware that enables a remote control of victim's machine.
WormAutorun. A worm spreads via removable drives. It writes its executable and creates "autorun.inf" scripts on all removable drives. The autorun script will execute the Trojan's file once a user opens a drive's folder in Windows Explorer.
IRCBot. A bot communicates with command and control servers via IRC channel.
MSNWorm. A worm spreads its copies through the MSN Messanger.
DNSBlocker. A program blocks designated DNS servers for making it difficult for users to locate specific domains or web sites on the Internet.
UDPFlooder. This program can make a UDP flood. A UDP flood attack is a denial-of-service attack using the User Datagram Protocol (UDP). It can be initiated by sending a large number of UDP packets to random ports on a remote host.
SYNFlooder. This program can make a SYN flood. It is a form of denial-of-service attack in which an attacker sends a succession of SYN requests to a target's system in an attempt to consume enough server resources to make the system unresponsive to legitimate traffic.
Trojan-Proxy. This program can launch a proxy server (SOCKS4) on a designated TCP port.
USBInfector. A program registers a device notification with the help of RegisterDeviceNotification so it is notified when a USB device is plugged and then the worm copies itself to the USB device plugged into the affected computer.

Propagation

A worm spreads via removable drives. It writes its executable and creates "autorun.inf" scripts on all removable drives. The autorun script will execute the Trojan's file once a user opens a drive's folder in Windows Explorer.
A program registers a device notification with the help of RegisterDeviceNotification so it is notified when a USB device is plugged and then the worm copies itself to the USB device plugged into the affected computer.
A worm spreads its copies through the MSN Messanger.


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. Scan a system with an anti-rootkit tool.
  2. Terminate malicious process(es) (How to End a Process With the Task Manager):

    1.exe:1768
    1.exe:188
    1.exe:1864
    wuauclt.exe:344
    sms.exe:1572
    sms.exe:1784
    15e141c65c8f87040ba7410b2b2ced70.exe:2008
    netsh.exe:204
    netsh.exe:240

  3. Delete the original Trojan file.
  4. Delete or disinfect the following files created/modified by the Trojan:

    %WinDir%\sms.exe (7386 bytes)
    %WinDir%\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore\Logs\edb.chk (100 bytes)
    %WinDir%\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore\Logs\edb.log (3576 bytes)
    %WinDir%\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore\DataStore.edb (100 bytes)
    %Documents and Settings%\%current user%\Local Settings\Temp\jusched.log (347 bytes)

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

    [HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Terminal Server\Install\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
    "Windows Messages Controler" = "c:\windows\sms.exe"

    [HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
    "Windows Messages Controler" = "c:\windows\sms.exe"

    [HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
    "Windows Messages Controler" = "c:\windows\sms.exe"

  6. Clean the Temporary Internet Files folder, which may contain infected files (How to clean Temporary Internet Files folder).
  7. Find and delete all copies of the worm's file together with "autorun.inf" scripts on removable drives.
  8. Reboot the computer.

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