How to remove a Trojan.BitCoinMiner Miner Infection

LPT: If you run Windows, check your task manager for "WDF.exe". If you see it, it's a virus, using your CPU as a bitcoin miner. It's surprisingly common on people's computers and most people who have it never realize, they just think their computer got slower.

Tip #12 if the rom came in this order rom.rar.exe don't think to open it and if you hide the extension file from showing from the file name it will show like rom.rar but it's actually a .exe or .dmg etc.

Tip #13 if you have a linux pc or a mac that doesn't mean you will not get infected even Temple OS have malwares ( if you don't what's a malware is just search )​.

Heres some proof about sigma not being a trojan and omikron client proof from the sigma creator andro

The high GPU usage is due to the GPU acceleration or the UIs. And this is not comparable to other person's GPU usage since every GPU behave differently. You can compare this usage with vanilla 1.15.2's GPU usage. In my personal case, it's about +1~8% higher.
And the overall performance loss over the 1.8 clients is due to the 1.15 itself, the heavy UI, the missing optimisations (performance update soon), the obfuscation, etc
Some people are saying that "conhost.exe" is a malware... It's actually the console process spawned by java.exe which is used by Sigma (instead of the javaw.exe, the window version of java.exe without the console, that is mostly used for Minecraft).
Fun fact: Badlion client and Lunar client are also spawning conhost, and they aren't getting called out as malwares.
Here's a great explanation of what it is: https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/4996/what-is-conhost.exe-and-why-is-it-running/

And Omikron client was not a bitcoin miner, here's the copypasta :
Omikron client didn't have any btc miner / rat / botnet or whatever. The thing running in background was a system to validate the usage of the auto alt / proxy from other computers. Therefore, if you used auto alt / auto proxy, your computer among others validated in some sort of P2P the usage of alts / proxies. If >50% of computers says that a "transaction" is good, it was validated. Omikron decided to do that to counter the abuse of auto alt / auto proxy.
But ofc you could disable that autorun in Omikron Client's setting. And it was clearly written in the client that it would autorun (but no body really read it) if you use auto alts / auto proxy.
Edit, another copypasta:
I know, this is missleading. In the code, finding alts is refenrenced as "mining" them because you have this usepass combo and sometime yay ! Its a working minecraft alt ! The whole problem about all this drama is that its old code written when the client was "ghost client" and putting it in a .m file intead of .minecraft, having the package not named omikron, not using omikron domain name in the code was a good idear to prevent memory scanning cheating software such as BLSquad to find "omikron" but as you can tell it has bring more trouble that anything. You shoudn't be scared, your cpu isn't and wont be used to mine crypto or any unwanted activity and you will soon be able to chose if you want the service to run. In the next release, beside the fact that all of this was moved to .minecraft/Omikron, using proper domain name etc, you will be able to choose if you are using the client and want the background service running to find alts or if you have the client installed but not using it you will be able to disable the background service.
The video that is spreading about Omikron client is only proving that it downloads an autorun, and runs it in the background, which is intended.

Be careful of people trying to spread that Sigma could be a virus. Most of the time, they're made up by people who are clueless and don't know about what they're talking about (ex: conhost).

What important crypto events happened last week?
Cryptocurrencies
Monero Presents New Legal Framework In Defense Of Privacy Coins
Riccardo Spagni presented the result of more than a year's work. A whitepaper titled "Anti-Money Laundering Regulation of Privacy-Enabling Cryptocurrencies" has been published. The document was conceived as a new legal framework to protect confidential coins such as Monero, Zcash, Dash, Komodo, and others.
Tether Is Moving 1 Billion More USDT Coins From TRON To Ethereum Blockchain
The total supply of coins will not change. The company carried out the swap on September 15, coordinating its actions "with a third party". In recent weeks, this is the second such stablecoin transfer between blockchains — on August 20, the issuer also moved USDT 1 billion from Tron to Ethereum. Another piece of news about Tether: USDT capitalization exceeded $15 billion, having increased by $3 billion in just a month.
Projects and Updates
Kraken Receives Licence To Establish First U.S Digital Assets Bank
The Kraken Bitcoin exchange was the first in the United States to receive the status of a special purpose depository institution (SPDI), giving it the functions of a traditional financial institution. The corresponding application of the Californian company was approved by the Wyoming Banking Council. This will allow Kraken to opt-out of third-party vendors to perform certain banking functions on its own.
Official Ethereum Proof-of-Stake Algorithm Proposal Published
Ethereum Foundation Lead Developer Danny Ryan has published the official proposal EIP-2982, which suggests the launch of Ethereum 2.0 and the transition from the Proof-of-Work consensus algorithm to Proof-of-Stake. If approved by other leading developers, it will be possible to launch Serenity, Ethereum 2.0 phase zero. Within its framework, the Beacon Chain will be activated, which will use Proof-of-Stake.
Uniswap Provides All Its Users With $1.200
Leading decentralized exchange (DEX) Uniswap has released the UNI governance token. It was listed on the Binance exchange almost immediately. About 13000 Uniswap users have already requested tokens.
Regulations
New Draft Law Suggests The European Union Is Set To Regulate Cryptocurrencies
The European Commission proposed to establish a legal framework for cryptocurrencies, security tokens, and stablecoins by analogy with the requirements for traditional financial instruments. This is stated in the Cryptocurrency Asset Markets Bill. The bill proposes to treat cryptocurrency assets like any other financial instrument. According to the European Commission, this will provide legal clarity.
Digital Assets Recognized As Securities In Nigeria
The regulator clarified that cryptocurrencies offer public alternative investment opportunities. Digital assets can be used as a medium of exchange, settlement, and accumulation. In order to protect investors from risks and not violate the integrity of the market, crypto assets must be controlled on an equal basis with securities. The main task of regulation is not to discourage the development of new technologies, but to ensure fair market competition and adherence to ethical standards.
Hacking
Japanese Crypto Exchange Sues Binance for Role in $63 Million Bitcoin Hack
The Japanese company Fisco Cryptocurrency Exchange, Inc has filed a US lawsuit against Binance Holdings Ltd., accusing it of providing a service to launder cryptocurrency stolen from the Zaif exchange in 2018. Fisco acquired Zaif in 2018 shortly after the hack. Over $9 million in stolen assets could have been funneled through Binance. The company notes that analysts were able to track the movement of all stolen $63 million to one bitcoin address. Subsequently, 1,451.7 BTC were sent from it to Binance addresses.
New Virus Attacks Microsoft SQL Database Servers For Monero Mining
Tencent's cybersecurity division has discovered a new miner virus called MrbMiner. The tactics of the virus are quite simple — the botnet scans the available IP addresses in search of Microsoft SQL servers, and if it detects such, it tries to log in under the administrator account using a brute-force password. If successful, the virus downloads the assm.exe file, which implements a reboot mechanism and creates a special account for hackers to access the server. After that, MrbMiner downloads a miner for mining the anonymous cryptocurrency Monero (XMR).
Mass adoption
Bahamas Geared to Launch Central Bank Digital Currency
The Bahamas wants to be the first country in the world to roll out a government-backed virtual currency nationwide and announced they will launch a central bank-issued cryptocurrency (CBDC) in October.

In addition to Nomadic Labs, several technology service providers and consultants will participate in the testing.
Kazakhstan Will Develop A Blockchain Service For Ensuring The Security Of Personal Data
It will allow citizens of the country to control the use of their personal data. The service is planned to be introduced by the end of this year.
People
Kiss Rock Group Member Is Ready To Buy Bitcoin
Gene Simmons supported Cameron Winklevoss's request to use bank accounts to buy Bitcoin and Ether.

Malwerebytes blocks notepad.exe from connecting to many IPs (Bitcoin Miner)

Hello, I have this bitcoin mining virus that may be disguising as dllHost.exe and opening notepad.exe to connect to pool-fr.supportxmr.com (that site is just a text saying "Mining Pool Online") and many french IPs. This virus is not that bad, by that I mean that I can just open Process Explorer and just kill the dllHost.exe -> notepad.exe tree and the issue is solved, but obviously its not good to keep a trojan on your pc even if you can manually contain it. I have done some research and many people have this processes called dllHost.exe*32 that use 100% of the CPU and RAM, but mine doesn't thanks to Malwerebytes blocking it. Process Explorer can't see the directory of the bitcoin miner because the acces is denied. I also have done some system scans but nothing really seems to pop up. Later I will do a full system scan (with rootkit scanning enabled) and hopefully it detects it. If not, any help would be brilliant.

MoneroOcean pool owner supports botnets

Hi guys,
As of late my vps that was running Microsoft's RDP got hacked. The attacker ran a malware miner named system.exe that was using 99% CPU. I'm gonna post a screenshot of all of it right here so he gets publicly exposed for his deeds.

I've scanned everything on VirusTotal and upon visiting the pool I've noticed that the miner has a hefty 50 KH/s. I've also contacted the pool owner via Discord and can post the whole discussion if anyone is willing to see it. He doesn't want to ban the miner, shortly.
I'm not so familiar with Monero but I had Bitcoins and I fully support the mining community. I understand that people with botnets increase difficulty for normal people to make a profit. I've also reported this guy to his ISP by examining the IP found in Event Viewer, since he didn't use a VPN (the IP isn't detected as proxy). I won't post the IP's publicly.
What more can I do? The pool owner also threatened me to report another XMR wallet address to SupportXMR pool because he thought I was a competitive attacker. I can also give that address aswell.
Thank you for reading and stay safe :)

Are FitGirl Repacks safe? CPU 100% ove 95 degree celsius for 4:30 hours

I have an i5 2300 2.80 Ghz

I'm trying to unpack AC Odyssey, I let it run for 1:20 hours and it's still 29% installed, it tells me it needs 3 more hours to complete.
Just out of curiosity I checked my cpu with MSI Afterburner and it said my cpus were around 94 to 98 degrees celsius, but if I touch my pc I can't feel any sign of overheating.

Is this legit? First thing I thought of was that this repack is a bitcoin miner virus, how can it take so long to unpack a game? maybe it's just prolonging the installation while using my pc to mine cryptocurrencies.

Even supposing that this repack is just ultracompressed and needs all that power to be decompressed, isn't it going to melt my pc?
I tried to set my maximum cpu usage rate to 85% and 70% from the control panel but it doesn't change anything.

Has anybody had any similar experience? Found anything suspicious? Task manager says my cpu is getting vandalized by this process "oo2recm.exe".

ProxyGate

ProxyGate
Hello reddit, I was playing games yesterday, when I realised my cpu and memory usage was extremely high. I was looking through task manager, and saw a substantial amount was due PG COMPONENT 32. I did some research and apparently, it ties into something called cloud.exe. Most sites are telling me that its a virus, and I want to remove it. I have attached the folder of said Cloud.exe (part of PROXYGATE), and was about to delete it. However, I am not sure what to do. Alarmingly, malwarebytes reported some sort of bitcoin miner, along with the cloud. Please help me finding a solution and also tell me about a good (and free) AV, I can use to protect myself in the future
Edit: I would like to post an update here. I downloaded MalwareBytes, and tried to delete the files this time. Not only that, it detected 100s of malware, bitcoin miners etc on my system. I removed them all, and my computer has never been faster; my cpu usage, ram have gone down by more that 80%. Thank you guys for the help and advice.

[PSA] If you use ARMA 3 launcher, uninstall it and run a malwarebytes scan - CONTAINS BITCOIN MINER

Malwarebytes just completed a scan and has found a bitcoin miner (runs under issch.exe) which hogs your computer resources for another person to profit from. I recommend uninstalling ARMA 3 launcher and remove any files it may have left behind. I don't know if it was added by the developers of ARMA 3 launcher, or somebody hacked their servers and included their bitcoin miner somehow. Proof from scan: https://puu.sh/qyd3l/17fc8a0b61.png
EDIT: Sorry for the false alarm, A3 launcher is indeed clean. I hope some people did manage to find something from a scan by coincidence and had it removed from their computer, nevertheless I don't think this harmed anyone. Again, sorry my mistake.

Is it a virus?

So, basically, my anti-virus (norton) have been telling me that an attack called "miner.bitcoinminer activity 7" is coming from "\DEVICE\HARDDISCVOLUME3\PROGRAM FILES\VIRTUALBOX\VBOXHEADLESS.EXE". I have noticed that vbox have been using a lot more cpu power and ram memory than usual. What should I do? Do you think deleting vbox will solve this problem or is there another way? btw i get like one bitcoin miner warning from this source every ten seconds.

Keep Your Eyes Out For Bitcoin Miners | Windows (R) Contacts Import Tool [wabmig.exe]

Even though this is a specific case, hopefully it serves nonetheless as a reminder for those of you who sail the high seas. Check your GPU and CPU usage for any strange activity (Bitcoin miners), as sometimes scans from Windows Defender and even Malwarebytes can miss them.
Noticed your games and PC in general performing slowly lately? For me, it was a decrease in frames and stuttering exactly every second, for my friend it decreased her performance significantly and put her GPU usage up to 90% constantly.
It appeared as a process in Task Manager using 30% of my CPU: Microsoft (R) Contacts Import Tool. Upon killing it our GPU usage went down to idle and as did our CPU usage. Upon further investigation I found it as a file (wabmig.exe) in a folder called Windows Mail. Now here's the weird thing, it was in my Riot Games folder in AppData, right alongside League of Legends. The removal is fairly simple: kill the process and delete the folder (empty your recycle bin too!).
Now of course this just screams Bitcoin miner, so I scanned it with Malwarebytes and Defender... nothing. However, scanning it with VirusTotal revealed this. Here you can see an analysis of the entire Windows Mail folder we found. We had been installing things from the high seas, so to speak, so it most certainly came from that. I couldn't pinpoint which installer contained the miner but they were all fairly popular things. If you're flying the black flag, keep an eye on your usages.
I understand this might be a strange place to post something like this, and no, I'm not going to sit here and say "oh I didn't do anything dangerous" etc., however I've had a lot of experience at sea and yet I still got caught out. I think it's important for everyone to remember that Bitcoin miners can happen to even the more secure of us.
tl;dr - If your games have become sluggish out of nowhere, you could have a Bitcoin miner. Be safe when sailing the seven seas.
Edit: If anyone wants to disect the folder, PM me for a link to it. Just be careful obviously.
Edit 2: As a few people have suggested, Process Explorer is a great way to check your CPU and GPU usage.

Found Tor running in task manager after deleting the exe a while ago. has my computer been compromised?

here is a screenshot of task manager and another one of the folder with the exe in it. I found this a few months ago and forgot about it but it appeared again in my task anger after deleting it before. is it a virus? how can i stop it from coming back https://imgur.com/NI9tXyn
https://imgur.com/l4boIK7
Edit: i never once installed Tor myself which is why its so suspicious. deleted everything in temp and scanned with lots of antivirus software. It did find what it said was a bitcoin miner so the Tor.exe could be something to do with that?
thanks again for the help

At my wit's end with virus removal

So I have at least one virus on my computer. The one I know of is some sort of bitcoin miner, I know this because my gpu usage is constantly at 100% and the fan goes crazy as well as hitmanpro categorizing files with names like bitcoinminer.
I have managed to remove every suspicious file I could find and ran antivirus and antimalware until they couldn't detect anything else but the virus keeps coming back.
The main places I think the virus is focused around are the ~C:\Users\Tony\AppData\Local\Temp~ and ~C:\Users\Tony\AppData\Local\WinSXS~ folders.
I have booted into safe mode, deleted everything in the temp folder, and gave myself permission to delete the WinSXS folder. Every time I boot normally the WinSXS folder just comes back. I know something is up with this folder because rkill always terminates it as well as the other antimalware not liking it.
When I normally boot there is a folder in the temp folder with a name that's just random strings of numbers and letters that I can't delete. It says it's open in another program. I searched the folder name is the resource monitor cpu tab and it was associated with svchost.exe and a couple other things. I'm wondering is the virus is somehow tied to svchost.
So here's a rundown of the steps I've been taking (repeatedly) to try to take care of this.
  1. Boot into safe mode (by switching my psu off then on to get to the boot menu)
  2. Show hidden files and folders
  3. Delete everything from the local\temp folder
  4. Delete unknown files from C:\\ProgramData and C:\Users\User\AppData\Roaming
  5. Remove any weird keys from HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
  6. Empty Recycle Bin
  7. Run rkill
  8. Run adwcleaner
  9. Run malwarebytes (with rootkit checker)
  10. Run Hitmanpro
  11. Run combofix
  12. Run the trojan remover from https://www.simplysup.com/
  13. Reboot computer normally
  14. Run malwarebytes, watch as it finds the same walwares as a million times before
  15. Listen to my fan speed fluctuate like crazy
  16. Run rkill, it kills a WinSXS process, which does nothing
  17. Cry uncontrollably
So uh, what the hell should I do?

JC3 XL SEYTER has bitcoin miner!

Installation took about 8 hours on my pc. I was sleeping, anyways it looks like try to install these files when directx and other visual thing came up. Be carefull you dont want your pc to be victim.
Im suggesting to *scan your computer if you installed any SEYTER repack*, scan with Avira Free or Malwarebytes Free. Both working nice.

HOW TO REMOVE IT
  1. Download and install Malwarebytes, Avira or AVG from their site.
  2. Scan your C:(Windows) drive and wait for it to find Miner files.
  3. If there is check folder name and go manually there or delete from antivirus-antimalware.
  4. You should really delete that folder.

F.A.Q.
Q: DELETING GAME CLEANS MY PC?
A: NO.
Q: IS ALL ISSCH FILES BITCOIN MINEMALWARE?
A:NO, CHECK CREATION DATES.
Q: I DIDNT DOWNLOAD FROM RUSTORKA, DO I HAVE BTCMINEMALWARE?
A: YOU PROBABLY HAVE IT.
**MakeItYours9** Check your "Task Scheduler" I've found an ISSCH reference there and deleted it. 
QUOTE FROM FITGIRL
I can confirm that at least early RotTR Seyter's repack contained malware. I've put an investigation on rutor. And magnet links for rustorka (magnet:?xt=urn:btih:e41e3e6b8ce4701792f1b3a4ca4f5c43034626ae) and rutor (magnet:?xt=urn:btih:112b33845accf5d39ed92d2bee58bb2d2b307d66) are still active, so anyone can make sure, that game-7.bin contains the virus installer, while EXEs are different for two magnets. Why exactly Seyter made it and not some other uploader? It's simple. Seyter uses modified FreeArc, made by this tool: http://krinkels.org/threads/fa_protect.1873/ When you generate a new FreeArc copy with FA_Protect, you enter the password, it's unique. And the archives, created with your version of FreeArc won't be compatible with original FreeArc. And game-7.bin can ONLY be extracted by using unarc.dll in Seyter's repack. As all other his archives. So only Seyter could create that bin. One more thing. Both setup.exe's have the same size. But if you make byte-comparision, you'll see that they are different. First I've made xdelta between them, and xdelta file was ~16 KB. Then I ran both installers and made memory dumps with Process Explorer. Then looked for installer section (Inno Setup leaved many traces in memory). I've checked the number of unpacked archiees, and found out, that game-7.bin is only unpacked in rutor (not rustorka) version. Then I've found the password for that archive (555, while other bins use 9im6rXzBCM0zAAfnfesw). You can download the unpacker here: http://www35.zippyshare.com/v/D3x1w1cy/file.html When you extract setup.exe from game-7.bin - DO NOT RUN IT, until you know what you're doing. If you have friends who can deal with such stuff - hand the file to them. When I knew that setup.exe resides in game-7.bin, I searched for it in rutor setup memory dump. And have found that it extracts to user local app data folder and then silently runs. ISSCH.exe install in pretty random folder, so it can be anywhere. So yes. It's 100% positive, that it was the Seyter, who did the infected repack. His idea was to blame others for infecting his reuploads, cause Rustorka installer CONTAINS the bin-file, but never runs it. He's a moderator on Rustorka and a friend of Rustorka's admin, Markus. And that's why he don't shit at home, but feels comfortabe to infect his uploads for other sites. After my investigation (and CPY crack release) he updated his repack on Rustorka, and removed notorius game-7.bin. But Internet remembers everything, and the magnets are alive. Avoid any Seyter repacks in the future. If you don't like my repacks, stick to one of those: RG Mechanics RG Revenants Xatab RG Catalyst As myself, they never put malware in repacks and you'll be safe. Now, when I registered on Reddit, you can ask questions about my repacks if you have some.

Bitcoin Miner malware, detected with Malware Bytes but I believe it's still hidden somewhere.

so a few days ago I did something stupid and tried to torrent a game for the first time and ended up installing a Bitcoin Miner onto my PC :/ It was very obvious that it was malware as it quickly seemed to hijack Google Chrome. I scanned with Windows Defender but nothing was found so I checked out the sticky post on here and got a trial of Malware Bytes, which detected the malware and quarantined it, then I removed it. I really thought it was that simple but I think it's still there. I had Spotify playing music on idle and got curious, did CTRL + ALT + DELETE to open up Task Manager and quickly saw my CPU % shoot down from 100% to 2% - %5, which is what it's been sitting at when I'm using it right now.
Other than that, there are a couple of weird things that make me think the virus is still there:
  1. Programs keep getting Suspended status in Task Manager (this is happening to Malware Bytes and Google Chrome), which never used to happen before. This a brand new PC I built in January so it shouldn't be doing this that often. I tried to open Malware Bytes now to scan again and it just froze on "Not Responding" and I can't seem to close it...
  2. There is a strange "Suspended" background process in Task Manager that uses up 3.6MB of memory. Here's a screenshot of what it looks like: http://prntscr.com/lchp1w :(
  3. When I right click ^ "open file location" on the suspended process and the 2 others below it, the location I get is C:\Windows\SysWOW64 and it's titled svchost.exe, which I read is a normal Windows process but there are A LOT of them running in my Task Manager right now
  4. All the other svchost.exes are under C:\Windows\System32, which I read is fine. Does this mean that the one in SysWOW64 is malware/infected?
As per the stickied thread, I ran rkill.com and turned on "scan for rootkits" in my Malware Bytes trial, and also ran the ADWCleaner. I did all of the above after I had originally removed the malware with Malware Bytes, so all these second scans didn't detect anything. Is there anything else I could do to actually detect the malware and remove it?
EDIT: Google Chrome keeps not responding, same with Malware Bytes. Can't uninstall Malware Bytes and Firefox stopped responding too. Writing this on my phone since I turned everything off briefly after writing this post, since my mouse started moving extremely slow and a repetitive beeping sound started coming out of my speakers. I swear it was like whatever infected me detected whenever I looked up information on malware removal and visited this subreddit ...
