Anybody else experienced that? Is it safe to ignore the threat? (PS: I read here and here that some people had a similar issue a few months ago but at that time the type of alert "BitcoinMiner" and not "Win32:UnwantedSig".)
Ive brought synapse x on our family pc,which holds all our files images etc etc,and downloading synpase is REAL hard since i need to disable safe browsing,allow it in norton security and avast (which is even harder because of all the different files) windows virtual screen and alot more,are you sure it isnt a virus,numerous senarious run through my head as i attempt to download it,what if everyones lien? What if it is a virus? What if its gonna destroy my pc with a bitcoin miner,what if it sells my data or steals my passwords? Not only am i finding it hard to download it because of all the antiviruses,but its also hard because of the fact of how untrustable this thing is,smh 20$ gone down the drain because noone can give me REAL proof that it isnt a virus or how to disable over 30 antiviruses and then whitelist the programme
Overly paranoid about malware, viruses and other nasty stuff
So, well... Will put it straight. I once downloaded like a cheat program for a game, mod menu, I did everything I can to check it for threats, scanned with virustotal, with avast, manually dived into my PC's processes with Process Monitor, and found nothing suspicious even after doing it all again after running the program itself, that, btw, didnt even work so I deleted it. But I'm still scared. Bitcoin miners. Remote acces trojans. Spyware. Unwanted programs. Malware and viruses. That's all I'm scared of. I even taped my webcam after downloading and deleting the program. I dived into scanning my computer again, searching for suspicious things in processes... But nothing. I'm still scared. Of some invisible malware or spyware, undetectable by anything, some ransom secretly encrypting my files while the computer is on and waiting for the right moment to pop up. Can somebody please calm me down? I really dont know what to do.
Dell G3, i5-9300H, GTX 1660 Ti 6GB, 8gbs of DDR4. So. I'll own what I think the cause was. Steam had Fallout 4 on sale for like $30. Went to lunch, thought about it, came back...and it was $60 again. I tried to buy Fallout 4 from Greenman Gaming. They took my money, I didn't get a game, I got pissed. So. I obtained the game through other means. Cough. Please note mods: I'm not advocating piracy. I know what I did is stupid. I'm trying to be honest to get real feedback. Things are fine. Then I start playing GTA online. Game stutters and crashes to the point I can't even run it. I do an anti-virus scan and find 20+ things. Bitcoin miners, the lot. I use Malwarebytes to remove em all. It's my own fault. I remove the culprit. Ended up buying it from Steam summer sale. The root of the problem: The laptop now has a persistent...stutter for lack of a better term. About every 15 minutes, the laptop basically freezes video for 2-3 seconds. Like a pulse. My thermals are fine. My CPU isn't maxed. Ram is usually high but that's been the case even before my stupidity. But it even does this while watching shit through VLC or Youtube. I've used Avast, Hitman Pro, Malwarebytes and none can find anything. What do I do? What's wrong? Where do I start with diagnostics?
So, my Avast has detected a virus for the second time coming from coinhive . com for the second time, which, after searching is a bitcoin mining site with possibly malware on it. The prev. detection was yesterday. While it happaned, Chrome was open with Spotify and Gmail. I never visited that site and I've never haerd of it before, and I didn't see it auto-open when the detection happened. What should I do? Details: Threat name: BV:Miner-T (Trj) URL-Address: https: // coinhive . com / lib / coinhive . min . js (spaces added so you don't click on it accidentally) Process: [chrome.exe's address] Detected by: Web Security Status: Connection aborted
So this has happened to me for a while but sometimes my computer will just spazz out and completely slow down as a result of Service Host DCOM. Here's the screenshots i've made (no idea why this happens and no idea what they mean so hopefully you guys can help me out).
Screenshot 2 when I right click on the offending processes and go to "more details"
Screenshot 3 when I right click on the offending svchost and go to "more details" again
I've ran virus scans(Avast), Malware(Malware Bytes) scans etc and found nothing. This problem has happened to me for ages and it seems completely random. The only time i've had any issues malware wise was a bitcoin miner (SoundMixer) that I got from a torrent I downloaded which has since been resolved but the problem persisted long before I ever had that problem, so I don't think it's the issue. System specs: * Windows 10 * 8GB Ram * 980 GPU * 4690K CPU Thanks in advance
Well, I was curious if I had gotten a virus from 9anime, because my PC has been acting strangely recently. But Avast always said my PC was clear. However, I decided I wanted a second opinion, so I downloaded Sophos and did a scan. It's still at 93% but it found a Bitcoin miner. That's kinda terrifying, given that this is my first PC build and I'm needing it to last me through college with very few upgrades. Does anyone know of any other precautions to take now? I'm scrapping 9anime for good. If the admins are willing to ruin my PC to make an extra buck, I'm more than happy to put another nail in the coffin of what used to be an incredible website. My PC constantly said there is an update ready, but it never updates properly. I've tried updating dozens of times but it never works. I'm hoping once the virus scan completes, all of the problems will be worked out. Like I asked earlier, does anyone have any more advice to make sure my PC is virus free? Edit: So this post is relatively old, but oh man right after I made this post, everything hit the fan. My browsers stopped working (Chrome and Edge wouldn't even start), the PC started slowing down, updates wouldn't install, etc. I did a clean install and the problems still persisted. After formatting everything (and I mean everything) multiple times in command prompt (while booting from my Windows boot disk), I am finally up and running like nothing ever happened. I have considered myself to be generally tech savvy, as most of my friends know if they have a tech question, they can come to me. But I have never really dealt with viruses, let alone on this level. Thankfully I am good friends with several computer scientists, so they helped me get back to normal. But I can't stress enough how done I am with 9anime after what I went through.
On my computer, I had a a Bitcoin Miner malware for nearly a year until I noticed that it was making my computer significantly slower. I ran MalwareBytes, Avast, then I looked up how to get rid of it and downloaded lot of advanced software meant to get rid of it, but my computer was still very slow. I ended up formatting my computer completely and that fixed the problem. Now, I come to find out that my sibling also has it (apparently he never installed any antivirus), so I ran MalwareBytes and removed it, but I really don't think it has been completely removed and I insist on him formatting his computer, but he has a ton of games on his 1TB drive and I wouldn't want him to re-download them all over again. Another reason I want him to reset his computer is because his disk usage often spikes and stays at 100%, and, the hard drive is full, with only 10GB of free space. If I reinstall Windows 10 without deleting his data, will the virus be gone? He also has a 128GB secondary hard drive; how could I remove Windows from his main drive, keep his files there, and install Windows on his second 128GB driver?
Just the weirdest, most inexplicable sht I've ever dealt with in a rig. [PC, blackscreening, semi-random]
Hi all. I'm utterly, utterly baffled. Stumped. Bemused. Befuddled. Bamboozled. I cannot explain this. At all. I crash on my desktop, often (but not always) while opening Chrome. Crash can be 1m after boot, or 4 hours after boot. Machine blackscreens, stops responding, doesn't send anything to the monitor or respond to scroll lock or capslock. Fairly standard - but I do NOT crash if there's a game running. Literally can run GW2 for as long as I need to, or warframe, or Titanfall, and it's solid as a rock. I've arranged an RMA for my GPU as it's the most recent addition to the sytem (25 Feb 2014) and it was blackscreening on wake (but with a responsive PC/keyboard and the media server was still up), but I'm stumped. I've never seen anything like this. What causes a rig to blackscreen when browsing or opening explorer, but doesn't have ANY problems when it's running high end games at max rez? 2500k @ 4.5GHz R9 290 4GB Factory OC 700W Seasoninc PSU 1 SSD (OS + Games) 2 HDD (Stuff) Midrange Gigabyte mobo, nothign special 8GB DDR3 @ 1600MHz Win 8 64 Bit etc etc. EDIT: Memtest results are in.

GW2 is running in the background and it's still not crashed... Ideas anyone? Am thinking about ordering a new CPU/Mobo and seeing if that fixes it - next on the list (after another crash) is going to be a W8 re-install. OS re-installed and BIOS updated, still crashes. Definitely hardware. Definitely not RAM, definitely not storage (SSD or HDD). Crashes still independent of load - but most common when clicking on something (Firefox, Chrome or Evernote for example). So the candicate list as far as I can work out is: CPU (moderately likely, though stressing with linpack or OCCT or prime does not cause crashes, and it's happy while playing GW2) mobo (happy while gaming, unhappy when asked to execute a crappy little prgraom like Chrome. Weird? gotta be unlikely) PSU - Feeling like this is a likely candidate. GPU - but doesn't crash when rendering ~100 players at max res in GW2. Soooooo.... can anyone think of a thing to test next? Final edit: running on the onboard GPU on mah telly. Flawless, no crashes at all. I think it's the GPU, the 2D processing chip or whatever must've been borked. Recap: new GPU, no crashes. All is now good!
Best Antivirus/Malvare for removing bitcoin miner?
So I think I might have gotten bitcoin miners infection. I Scanned my computer 3 times today including all of the drives, with Avast and Malvare bytes. I also did with Hitman Pro but it doesn't search my HDD which is where most my downloads go So what would be the most ideal anti virus/malvare remover to use to detect and remove Bitcoin Miners trojans? I am thinking of Avira. Any recommendations? Reason I ask is because my GPU jumps to 0-80% when doing nothing but idling browising the web etc. http://gpuz.techpowerup.com/15/09/22/kce.png here is a picture with sensors etc. so you can see that it keeps going up and down.
For example I was downloading the latest cgminer and Avast blocked the download saying it was a virus. Is this true or is it a false positive?
