Yes, there are several toolkits like this floating around. I'll give  
you a couple of things to check for..

Check to see if you have an "update.exe" in the root of your C drive,  
there will also probably be an update folder with the MS RPC Patch  
files in it.
If this file/folder exists, do a netstat -an from a command prompt. You  
will more than likely see a high port listening, download fport  
navigation.htm&subcontent=/resources/proddesc/fport.htm) and run it  
piping the output to a file "fport.exe > fport.txt" this will create a  
text file with the output of the fport program. Open the fport.txt file  
in notepad and look for the high port, this should map what application  
has the port open. If the port does not appear in the fport output then  
map the drive from a remote computer "\\IP.OF.INFECTED.HOST\c$"

Once you have the C drive mounted on a different system, do a search  
for "csr*" on the file system, you should see CSRSS.exe this is a legit  
system file, you will probably see more files though csrsrv.exe and  
csrsx.exe or csrsu.exe (the last letter of this file often changes).

If you do see these files on the system when the drive is mounted on a  
different system, go back to the local infected machine and search for  
them, chances are they will be hidden/stealthed so you can't see them.

The csrsrv.exe file is the exe stealth program from webtoolmaster.com  
and the csrs[a-z].exe is a backdoor that is hidden by the exe stealther.

Basically what this stealth program is doing is hiding any  
files/registry keys that begin with the string csr.

We removed this by booting into Windows PE and removing the registry  
entries and files from the system, however booting into safe mode and  
doing the same may work, we've not tested it.

The Registry keys that this toolset created are below.

"ImagePath"=(REG_EXPAND_SZ)"C:\\WINNT\\system32\\csrsrv -k csrspx"



"Description"=(REG_SZ)"CSRS Windows NT"
"DisplayName"=(REG_SZ)"CSRS Windows NT"
