Remove the Brontok worm

Brontok is a computer worm which spreads through emails and USB drives. There are so many variants of brontok but they basically work similarly.
How do I know if my system is infected?

  • You can’t start Regedit.exe
  • When trying to start any other registry editor, the system restarts
  • The system also restarts when executing certain EXE files
  • The presence of the following files:
    %UserProfile%\\Local Settings\\Application Data\\smss.exe
    %UserProfile%\\Local Settings\\Application Data\\services.exe
    %UserProfile%\\Local Settings\\Application Data\\lsass.exe
    %UserProfile%\\Local Settings\\Application Data\\csrss.exe
    %UserProfile%\\Local Settings\\Application Data\\inetinfo.exe
    %UserProfile%\\Local Settings\\Application Data\\winlogon.exe
    %UserProfile%\\Start Menu\\Programs\\Startup\\Empty.pif
    %WINDIR%\\%CURRENT_USER%’s Setting.scr
    All these files have the size of the worm’s main executable: 42,028 bytes(About 42 KB).

What does it do?

  • Disable Folder Options
  • Disable Registry Editor
  • Installs itself in the startup
  • When in memory, it will restart the system if any program involving the registry is started

    I am a victim of Brontok worm: I used the above mentioned tool but did not kill it compeletely; I still cannot run cmd.exe: XP just re-boots!

  8. Anchal

    I have all the above mentioned processes running, my regedit wouldn’t open, my task manager was disabled, but the processes’ size isn’t 42KB. A few processes have greater size, and a few have less. I have an Antivirus that just shows up Worm.Win32.Autorun virus many times though I delete it each time. I’m unable to make out if i’ve been infected with Brontok. I even scanned with the Brontok removal tool, but nothing happened. But one thing did happen, I got a stop error screen that says BAD_POOL_CALLER. With this the no. of stop error screen messages increased to two. Please help!

    I have a about.Brontok.A virus on my system (Vista Home Premium) and every time that I try to download a virus removal or any kind of program the computer restarts by itself. What should I do?
    Thanks in advance for your help.

  15. Novato

    Albert, this is what I did,
    Right click and Save as….
    Rename the exe file with a new extension before you download the file (for example: AntiBrontokAen.EXA ) and then in your Hard Disk rename again the file to .exe an voila !!
    The restart happens only when you try to download .exe files because of the damn brontok worm.
