  1. What is Taskhostw Miner? The Malwarebytes research team has determined that Taskhostw Miner is a Monero miner. These miners earn money for the threat actor by using your system resources. This one uses so many resources you will notice a very slow system plus it opens an ad-rotator in your default browser. How do I know if my computer is affected by Taskhostw Miner? You may notice a process called taskhostw.exe using up almost all your CPU cycles: How did Taskhostw Miner get on my computer? Miners use different methods for distributing themselves. This particular one was offered as a Flash player update. How do I remove Taskhostw Miner? Our program Malwarebytes can detect and remove this Monero miner. Please download Malwarebytes to your desktop. Double-click mb3-setup-consumer-{version}.exe and follow the prompts to install the program. Then click Finish. Once the program has fully updated, select Scan Now on the Dashboard. Or select the Threat Scan from the Scan menu. If another update of the definitions is available, it will be implemented before the rest of the scanning procedure. When the scan is complete, make sure that all Threats are selected, and click Remove Selected. Restart your computer when prompted to do so. Is there anything else I need to do to get rid of Taskhostw Miner? No, Malwarebytes removes Taskhostw Miner completely. How would the full version of Malwarebytes help protect me? We hope our application and this guide have helped you remove this miner. As you can see below the full version of Malwarebytes would have protected you against the Taskhostw Miner. It would have warned you before the miner could install itself, giving you a chance to stop it before it became too late. The web protection module also blocks the ad-rotator the miner opens.

  4. I recently downloaded Malwarebytes after Norton 360 kept telling me that I was getting attacked by a worm. I thought with Norton 360 I was protected from everything, but it appears not. After downloading Malwarebytes I ran a few scans and had to restart my computer a few times. I have run into 8 files that keep coming up on the scan. Here is the log: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.61.0.1400 www.malwarebytes.org Database version: v2012.05.25.09 Windows 7 Service Pack 1 x64 NTFS Internet Explorer 8.0.7601.17514 Owner :: OWNER-PC [administrator] 26/05/2012 3:07:26 PM 1.txt Scan type: Quick scan Scan options enabled: Memory | Startup | Registry | File System | Heuristics/Extra | Heuristics/Shuriken | PUP | PUM Scan options disabled: P2P Objects scanned: 207390 Time elapsed: 2 minute(s), 22 second(s) Memory Processes Detected: 3 C:\Windows\Temp\svchost.exe (Trojan.Agent) -> 3412 -> No action taken.

Is there anything I can do to stop this? I had problems before with a file called update.exe appearing in my Roaming folder. When I deleted it, it would just appear again after a few seconds. So I deleted it and then put a folder in Roaming called update.exe. This stopped the file from appearing. Any input or help is appreciated.
