U.Z.A O/S Eliminator

I was infected by UZA O/S and my Antivirus Software could not detect it. It does nasty things like changing your wallpaper, disabling Taskmanager and Disabling Properties tabs.
UZA OSAfter analyzing the activity of the U.Z.A O/S on my computer I wrote a little utility to help you remove this virus/trojan or whatever it is. Get the utility from here.. It works on Windows XP. I don't have time to write more.. Let me know of any issues. It worked for me somehow! Cheers!

Update: The Link is Fixed now!
Make sure that you disinfect all your thumb drives. This trojan spreads through removable media. As soon as you connect an infected removable media to a PC, It'll get infected.. Therefore its important that you disinfect all the thumb drives/ removable media that is used with the PCs in your office/home. If the thumb drive has an application called 'My_personal_data' which looks like a folder (its icon is the same as a default folder icon in XP), then the pen drive/removable media is infected.

Thank You.Shaamil... I tried your UZA_ eliminator. and it worked like easy. Thanks man. I am a IT student and am curious on how you built UZA o/s eliminator. If this is not against your policy can you give me some pointers as to how this tool came to life. You can reach me at shamoon@takaful.mv . also if you post it to this site it will be ok. cause i will be checking this site for any updates.

THANK YOU

thank u

Shaamil said...

hey shamoon,
Building it is easy though you may need to analyze the activities of the virus/Trojan under a virtual environment first to avoid any damages to your computer. Gather in depth information about its activities using a registry monitor and a file monitor. Then you can use any programming language or scripting utility or even a DOS batch file to undo the changes it made and delete its files.
Have a good day!

Abdul Kader Anwar said...

Hai Shaamil
This is Anwar. Still i didnt check ur sw. Just i want to is if we delete the file and if restart means it will be in th regisrty r in someotherplace. I think UOS.exe is not the source. if we delete also it will automatically generate next time rebooted. Is it possible to open the exe file using sofwares.

hey shaamil, thank you so much.. you save my day. the black desktop turned my day gloomy. now that you have cheered everyone of us up:) heart felt thank you*

Shaamil said...

Abdul Kader Anwar,
You can use a hex editor to open any file including applications.. And resource hacker is also a useful application if you want to see what's inside the executable.

Cheers everyone. :)

Shahid said...

Hi shaamil, When your progrum is run the scan button remains greyed out... could you please help,

Anonymous said...

hello.. thanks for this great util.

I was able to eliminate it from one account.. but when i loged on to the other account and tried it., the scan button is grayed out.. is there a way to remove it from this account as well.. thanks

Shaamil said...

Shahid, anonymous,
If the scan button is grayed out that means the trojan is not present in memory (not currently running). If you have problems removing from other accounts try this modified version. I am not aware if there are other versions of this trojan. This trojan spreads through removable media such as thumb drives..

Anonymous said...

you are awesome shaamil.. this new one worked for me.. clock at the bottom looks fine and all.. however now i can press scan the next time after a reboot.. does this mean the virus is still present??
thanks again

Shaamil said...

When you scan with the utility from any account with sufficient rights the u.z.a O/S is eliminated from the whole system. But since this is a quick utility it isn't dynamic. It undoes all the changes done to the system for the account in which the utility is run. In the modified version which I linked in the comment, the scan button is not disabled even if the utility could not find u.z.a O/S in memory. In the original version the scan button will be disabled if it could not find u.z.a O/S in memory. That's the only difference.

thank your your UZA_ eliminator works like a charm.

Shahid said...

Thanks shhamil! IT works fine now.... It leaves a green screen after scan is run and the virus ges cleared. One thing i noticed that after tha even after plugging in an infected pendrive, when it is double clicked the system gets the virus in the memory: the uos.exe file in the system directory and also the in the taskmanager it is running , also the visloader is also there but it never affects the system, the wallpaper never changes to the the horrible black scree... Has it devoloped an immunity to the virus I mean with you tool remaining as a TSR.... also I wonder if you would care to tell me from in an infected system from which folder does the virus actually load itself during the startup...I mean the UOS.exe in the taskmanager thanks ...hoping to get an answer from you...as i am too inquisitive

Shaamil said...

hello Shahid,
UZA_Eliminator tool does not remain resident in memory nor it leaves any traces in registry. If uos.exe is running then you are infected.. Its a common behavior among trojans and viruses that they doesn't do anything bad for sometime. The payload is activated by a trigger, sometimes it is the number of infections or a specified date etc.. Eliminate the trojan as soon as possible. Most trojans load from the registry. Some of them attach themselves to executables, so that whenever you run the infected executable the malicious code is also executed.
Have a good day.

Shahid said...

Thanks for the info. shaamil, Will do that. Thats great work form you.

Cheeers! This is a Great and Useful Work shaamil, you have great programing skills..( I still cant understand a reason why this crazy Douche Bag who created this U.Z.A didnt try to make his own OS, instead of pretending to brand something else which he didnt and cause others trouble. Lamer!! )

:) thanks a lot. you´re a whiz.

The virus is a malware..its hard for scanners to find them and normally the removing tools are made by the one that actualy created the malware..since they cant take the credit for the malware infecting your pc they go around making a cleaner to take the credit :) my bet is that our little friend Shaamil is the author of this malicious code..
