W32/Hakaglan.worm is a worm written in AutoIT that spreads via Yahoo Messenger, removable drives and network shares


Upon execution the worm drops the following files:
%WINDIR%\SSVICHOSST.exe -> Worm Component
%SYSDIR%\SKCVHOSThk.dll  ->  Keylogger Component
%SYSDIR%\SKCVHOST.exe    ->  Keylogger Component

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\
“Shell” =” Explorer.exe SSVICHOSST.exe”
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\
“Yahoo Messengger”  = “%SYSDIR%\ SSVICHOSST.exe”

The worm creates a job file (At1.job) which schedules to execute itself everyday at 09:00 hrs.

Modifes the following registry keys to hide folder options and disable the taskmanager, registry editing etc.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\
"NofolderOptions"= “1”
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\
"DisableTaskMgr"=”1”
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\
"DisableRegistryTools"=”1”
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Schedule\

cmd.exe

Attempts to delete following registry entries:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run="BkavFw"
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run=”IEProtection"

Downloader Component:

The worm connects to the following domains to download updated variants of itself and additional malware.

http://nhatquan[BLOCKED].t35.com/
http://nhatquan[BLOCKED].t35.com/
http://nhatquan[BLOCKED].t35.com/
http://nhatquan[BLOCKED].t35.com/


At the time of writing this description, variants of KeyLog-Perfect.dll, Keylog-Perfect and Generic ProcKill.c were observed to be downloaded.

Note: As the website being communicated is normally controlled by the malware author, any files being downloaded can be remotely modified and the behavior of these new binaries altered - possibly with every user infection.
Method of Infection -

The worm spreads through passing any of the above links pointing to a hosted copy of the worm to all users listed in infected person’s yahoo buddy list.

Victims typically get infected when they download and execute the spammed copy of the worm.

It also spreads via network shares and removable drives.
Removal -

A combination of the latest DATs and the Engine will be able to detect and remove this threat. AVERT recommends users not to trust seemingly familiar or safe file icons, particularly when received via P2P clients, IRC, email or other media where users can share files.

3. Don't forget to turn off System Restore at your PC.

4. Also here is a solution for "handy" cleaning this Malware:

"Enabling The Registry Editor and Task Manager

This malware disables the Registry Editor. To restore the said system tool, perform the following instructions:

Open Notepad. Click Start>Run, type Notepad, then press Enter.
Copy and paste the following:
On Error Resume Next
Set shl = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set fso = CreateObject("scripting.FileSystemObject")
shl.RegDelete "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\DisableRegistryTools"
shl.RegDelete "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\DisableTaskMgr"
shl.RegDelete
 
Save this file as C:\RESTORE.VBS.
Click Start>Run, type C:\RESTORE.VBS, then press Enter.
Click Yes at the prompt of the message box.
Terminating the Malware Program

This procedure terminates the running malware process.

Open Windows Task Manager.

CTRL+ALT+DELETE
• On Windows NT, 2000, XP, and Server 2003, press
CTRL+SHIFT+ESC, then click the Processes tab.
In the list of running programs*, locate the process:
RVHOST.EXE
Select the malware process, then press either the End Task or the End Process button, depending on the version of Windows on your computer.
To check if the malware process has been terminated, close Task Manager, and then open it again.
Close Task Manager.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*NOTE: On computers running Windows 98 and ME, Windows Task Manager may not show certain processes. You can use a third party process viewer such as Process Explorer to terminate the malware process.
On computers running all Windows platforms, if the process you are looking for is not in the list displayed by Task Manager or Process Explorer, continue with the next solution procedure, noting additional instructions. If the malware process is in the list displayed by either Task Manager or Process Explorer, but you are unable to terminate it, restart your computer in safe mode.

HOW TO: Back Up, Edit, and Restore the Registry in Windows XP and Server 2003
Removing Autostart Entry from the Registry
