  1. My cp usage will randomly spike to 15-20 per cent usage while idle, help me please thanks in advance
  2. Greetings, I believe it started somewhere during this week or last, i'm not completely sure. At first i noticed that some of the tabs i was visiting didn't have the page title but the url between quotes. I was busy with work so i ignored it off as a chrome bug or something. Since i work as a webdeveloper, it's normal for me to sometimes go F12 and check JS console, then i noticed... Sometimes, when i load a website, the website gets loaded on a frameset, with a cryptojacking on the header. Check attached image. Thankfully, this alone doesn't do jack to me since i use Minerblock, pl
  3. FWIW if it helps someone. Sorry I can't find the string(s) I was in originally. Had a problem with the coinhive mess, but I didn't know it. Machine slowed to a crawl and task manager showed chrome using more than 80% of CPU. Used adw, FRST, eset, malwarebytes, CC, researched for eons. Tried everything written on this subject here and everywhere else. Nothing. Only a problem in chrome. So bit the bullet and removed all addons, etc from chrome... went away. Started adding things back. Turned out, AdRemover FOR chrome was the culprit. Would never have known the miner was there if
  4. As requested on https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/9573-im-infected-what-do-i-do-now/ find attached the FRST and Additons logs. I'm not attaching a Malware Threat Scan log since the software says there are no threats, however, every time I open Google Chrome, Malwarebytes detects this "coinhive". Thank you in advance for all your help. Addition.txt FRST.txt
  5. Hello I would like to know if Malwarebytes detects Coinhive, I am sorry if this has been asked b4 but I used the search function and although I have seen a few topics talk about it but I am still not sure if this program will be stopped with a Malwarebytes premium account, tnx for your time. Edit: while i'm at It I have another unrelated question, I normally use a combination of Malwarebytes premium and avast free antivirus, do I still need AV software or can I use only Malwarebytes for protection?
  6. after doing some research i ended up on this conclusion: some companies using CoinHive to mine in your browser without your knowledge, how i knew it ? https://github.com/AliasIO/Wappalyzer/issues/1807 i have an addon called WAPPALYZER it shows what tech your site is made, i noticed something is confusing all websites have CoinHive plugin, EVEN GOOGLE i was WHAT! no way its a bug i went there to GITHUB i opened an issue someone told me maybe iam infected somehow with it, i was hmm that seems logic on my computer i have those antiviruses:(both are paid licenses)
  7. I'm about to scream my censoreding head off, OKAY FIRST OF ALL this censoreding forum's sign-up you-know-what-word requirements ARE GODDAMN RIDICULOUS and it took me about a mothercensoreding half hour just for the stupid thing to accept an amalgam of [word and number and symbols and firstborn limb sacrifice] configurations. So pardon me, but ontop of the current problem, I am AT my censoreding wit's end. To that end, I have tried goddamn EVERYTHING shy of wiping my entire censoreding computer or chucking it out the window. I've tried scanning FOUR separate times, I've checked for Wi
  8. So, I've been having some problems recently. As soon as I got on the 14 day free trial for Malwarebytes premium, it's been constantly blocking this website called coinhive, which is reported with many numerous IPs and ports, and sometimes even different URLs. The usual URL is just coinhive but it can sometimes have a ws(Insert randomly generated number here) and then the coinhive URL. Its been continually blocking them non stop for the past 40+ minutes and I am currently running a scan which seems to have not found anything just yet (Its about 80% done.) Please respond as quick as possible, as
  9. It started today for no reason while i was watching some videos on Youtube and Malwarbytes started spamming this "coinhive website blocked". I followed the procedure so here's my logs from FRST but i don't have any MB Threat Scan logs. For now, i have stopped the spam but i still wanna do the procedure if needed. Addition.txtFRST.txt
  10. This appeared a few days ago (using Chrome) and Premium keeps blocking it. I know what bitcoin basically does and I'm worried it's eating up my processing speed. It had stopped showing up for a day but then came back. I was visiting Facebook and a local (trusted) news site when it started again. I haven't installed any new software. http://upnorthlive.com/news/local/deputies-investigating-disturbing-post-shared-by-east-middle-school-student Protection Event Report: Malwarebytes www.malwarebytes.com -Log Details- Protection Event Date: 10/9/17 Protection

  12. I updated MB today, I have the premium version, I have not stopped getting pop-ups saying different variations of coinhive is being blocked. I cleared my cache in Chrome, ran adware and that found nothing. The pop-ups will NOT stop I'm losing my mind. I haven't gone to any weird sites today just the normal deal I do every day. I scanned with Farbar and here are those results Scan result of Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (FRST) (x64) Version: 29-09-2017 Ran by Effymaysims (administrator) on NORMAJEAN (29-09-2017 12:33:19) Running from C:\Users\Effymaysims\Desktop Loaded Profiles: E
