Trojan:win32/EyeStye.N and Trojan:Win32/EyeStye.C!cfg

Post by ☠ ~ Aɳɳ ~ ☠ on Wed 11 Jan 2012, 08:32

Hello,
These were just removed from my computer. By Windows malicious software removal tool.
Which is what its there for I suppose but I never EVER have virusses! So now I'm thinking, how did it get there? Is it possible that they for instance traveled on one of the screenshots I downloaded to have a look at? Or should I turn my eye on whatever I'm downloading with Utorrent.
Are there any steps I should take to make sure there's no lasting damage? I suppose change my passwords since its a keylogger. Though I don't know what anyone would want with my passwords.

Hello Lady!
I can say that I had this problem, too.

It can be from uTorrent, because some people may upload something with viruses (But you know that a lot of viruses are invisible)
Or from screenshots. Since there is a way to hide files in a screenshot (Like you open the screenshot and a file is executing then, without you to know)

So I suggest you to change your passwords from your personal files until is not too late. Because that keylogger is just a door for a lot of viruses. If you don't take action imediately, they can play with your System files, and then your computer will be unuseable; And you should get a strong anti-virus, like BitDefender Total Protection 2012.

Hope that your problem will be solved I love you

Hello,

Well, the best and strongest Anti-Virus at the moment is, without doubt, G-Data.

Try these scans one by one, just to be sure (These are not full AV software, just virus removal tools);

Bitdefender: http://www.bitdefender.com/scanner/online/free.html
Kaspersky: http://www.kaspersky.com/antivirus-removal-tool-register

Hello,

Thanks to you both.

I'm not downloading much with Utorrent. Mostly G4TW stuff. Though I have recently (= a few weeks ago) downloaded some tv series, but I imagine this infection would've been spotted sooner if that were source, which makes me wonder if it possibly came from one of the many screenshot I opened here.
I really do prefer them by URL rather than as an attachment.

Fortunately I haven't accessed my digital banking account in weeks. I'm always logged on automatically to everything else, so the keylogger couldn't have gotten much information from me. But I'll change my passwords nonetheless.

So far Bitdefender came up clean, now waiting for Kapersky to finish its scan.

Hello,

How do you know it's a keylogger?
I doubt it's a screenshot uploaded on the Forum, since only the following files are allowed for uploading (Note there's no .exe file):

Pictures : .bmp - .png - .jpg - .gif - .tif
Sounds : .mp3 - .m4a - .wma
Videos : .mp4 - .mov - .m4v - .mpg - .3gp - .3g2 - .wmv
Documents : .txt - .doc - .docm - .docx - .pps - .ppt - .pptm - .pptx - .xls - .xlsb - .xlsm - .xlsx - .pdf
Misc : .zip - .swf

Hello,

That's for sure. That's why I (especially not me) never use torrented Anti-Viruses.
And at the time I got my G-Data license, they had this special offer: 3 PC's for 3 year, just €50,- (!). So I didn't hesitate a second. Wink

By the way, I really, really recommend Spybot Search & Destroy (Free) too! It's a very clever program and sometimes finds viruses and/or malware that your Anti-Virus doesn't find. You can use it in combination with all Anti-Viruses safely.

Thanks Admin, I'll try that at once.
I'm not into torrented antivirus either, but I've always used free AVG or AVAST in the past.

I've found that both AVG and AVAST have gotten weaker recently, as they seem to pick up on strong viruses less often than they used to. While I still use AVG it's simply because I haven't found any other antiviruses that work well.

I know this post is old, but you can easily change a filetype to a .jpeg and when you open it, it opens a hole in your firewall for backdoor trojans to get in and place things in your pc. (when you open a normal picture, it executes the windows photo viewer, so writing a script to change that to a script that closes fast so you cant see anything change is really easy)

Ive always used microsoft security essentials, and malwarebytes. CCleaner to move temporary junk out the way, alonside disk cleanup. Ive hardly ever been let down by these programs, and if all else fails, norton power eraser gets rid of rootkits

Norton power eraser will do the job.
By the way, there is so much path for virus to get into our system. Sometime it's not a virus, but our antivirus detect it as a virus.

Just make sure, you know what are you downloading.

I would definitely pair Malewarebytes CCleaner with your Antivirus as above poster mentioned, Also in Services.msc disable "Remote Registry" it can also be used for an attack etc. It's a HUGE security issue. After you download ANY thing such as games, shows, music and movies from torrents to zip and rar files+ scan them even though it might do it on it's own scan anyways, Also during virii removal turn off system restore. It helps when doing this so the virii can't hide there. Because you will if at anytime need to do a system restore and those are lurking in there, you will end up having them all over again.

Downside is you won't have any more restore points, yet it's worth not being re-infected...Unhide system files aswell during your scan helps as well. Best of luck!
