Hello, My laptop has been using it's fan quite vigorously when it's idle but I didn't take it seriously. Today I realized it is really bugging me out. When no input is given to the pc it began to spin its fans really fast. But when I move the mouse it almost suddenly stops. Then I ran Tas Manager on the screen and I waited. When the fans began to spin again I realized a process is using almost 60% of my CPU. Name of the process is "mint.exe". No luck finding any information though. Ran a malwarebytes scan and it found 1 software. "Guard.lnk" which lead me to "Guard.exe" in "C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\AppContainer\Storage\microsoft.microsoftedge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\Children\001\Internet Settings". BTW "Internet Settings" folder is hidden. Showing hidden items didn't help. But going directly to the address let me in. Content of the folder is attached. There is a "config.txt" file in the folder which led me thinking it is a stealth miner malware. You will get when you see the config file which is attached also. If any of you guys want me to share the files for analyzing purposes I will gladly share them with you. But I want them to be gone of course. malwarebytes report, FRST.txt, Addition.txt files are attached. TL;DR: Cryptocurrency miner malware infected. Need to remove. Please help. Required files are attached. Thank you config.txt malwarebytes.txt FRST.txt Addition.txt

I am kind of seriously frustrated. I did report false positive IP addresses before for Geth.exe (Ethereum) and Parity Technologies ( https://parity.io/ ) I can't just report a couple of Ips that I added to the exclusion list... because I think that the applications calls a lot of different Ips. Since it's P2P.... I am doing Blockchain development with ETH and when I'm in my powershell I keep seeing Blocked Ips every single sec. So I have to quit Malwarebytes to continue my work. It's so so so so so so annoying. I added the applications to the exclusion list, VIA folder. It still gives those annoying popups. I hope someone investigate what Ethereum is. Do you care?
