Trojan Horse RUDL.A

  GRANT121 13:56 08 Feb 04

Afternoon people,

AVG has picked up the above trojan in rundll32.exe and is unable to heal it. I've scanned the net for information on this trojan but found nothing at all. I've also downloaded two trojan removal programs but neither have worked. Any recomendations? I'd prefer not to format my drive, but will if need be.
Cheers in advance.

Cheers Proxy Worm,
I gave that a go, but it couldn't find anything.

Thanks VoG,
....but again it found nothing. Any more ideas?

No, I can't find anything either. Is this AVG being a bit over zealous? I have AVG installed but it hasn't flagged this one up on my computer. I usually use McAfee/Virus Information to checkout virii? but nothing is listed on their site about rudl.a

Thanks for the sites mate. Downloaded TDS and it listed the following as an alarm:-
"Scan Control Dumped @ 17:55:21 08-02-04
RegVal Trace: RAT.BlueAdeptz: HKEY_CURRENT_USER
File: Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run [RunDLL32=C:\windows\rundll32.exe]"

However rundll32.exe is always locked by another process, i presume this is why none of the trojan removal programs i've used can detect/destroy it.
A format and re-install is looking more likely then ever. Oh well, at least it teaches me to update AVG more frequently!

Fixed. Rebooted into safe mode and then ran Trojan hunter. Rebooted, ran AVG which then healed the file.
