Real simple. I have randomly named processes (like
gk5odre.exe) popping up, and when I kill them, another one
takes their place. *Something* has to be the parent than
controls this. I can delete an entire registry key and watch
it be recreated in less than a second. I can delete a
directory with three dlls in it and watch it be recreated
right before my eyes. I can kill the randomly named process
and watch it reappear using the same name or a completely
different name. I can delete the executable after killing the
process, and it will be recreated in no time. So *something*
has to be controlling it, yet when I look at the process tree,
the randomly named process appears to be the parent.
Probably a rootkit.
Give a look to klister and patchfinder2, from www.rootkit.com ...
