I wasn't sure if I should post a new thread or post in the old one.
I have 2 computers on a home network. My dsl modem seems affected. I have it set to bridge mode, and in that mode the lights should not blink, they do. In bridge mode the router becomes the gateway to the inet.
After my previous posts, I wiped all infected computers, reinstalled OS's.
Reset the dsl modem, reconfigured, new account password. Reset the router, reconfigured. Reset router 2, reconfigured. After doing all this the modem wasn't acting right, was blinking and shouldn't.
I have wiped this computer a second time, a laptop. I wanted to put xp pro on it instead of vista. Could not install xp. Now I am back to vista.
I am having problems. I may have a rootkit. Kaspersky 7 shows nothing.
I was curious because of minor issues, so I used Rootkit Revealer. It acted weird. I get, Interactive Services Dialog Detection, the screen blanks out and the scan is performed in a different environment, finding 285,000+ discrepencies.
Gmer says there is an ntdll.dll issue.
Rootkit hook analyzer worked on initial install but subsequently does not work.
F-Secure blacklight used but found nothing.
Avz has some difficulties, but staes there is a problem.
HiJackThis will not save a log file.
Bat1 will not save a log file.
I used to use Netscape on the previous installs and on downloads, 7.5mb file in less than 1 second. I don't have a T1 and I don't have fios(fiber optic service). I can't explain 1200kb to 2000kb downloads unless I'm pipelined through somebody elses connection.
Is it possible that my ISP is the infection point or my account from the ISP?
Could the flash in my modem be infected? Would reseting it delete the infection?
I am just getting frustrated. No matter what I do or how often I wipe the problems return. On this latest install I have not used any outside media of old saved files. If I became infected it was because of the connection. If I stayed infected then it was embeded in the system.
Potential Rootkit, affects Gmer, RKR, HJT, IE, AVZ, RKhookAnalyzer...
