Hi, I suspect a miner running on two of my Mac. First, on my Mac mini (m1), Malwarebytes has detected OSX.birdminer with 5 locations: Hebrew = /Library/Application Support/Hebrew Metachlamydeae = /Library/Application Support/Metachlamydeae Hebrew = /usr/local/bin/Hebrew Metachlamydeae =/usr/local/bin/Metachlamydeae Mithraeum = /usr/local/bin/Mithraeum The thing is, It detected these on the m1 Mac, but not on the Intel Mac I have. I use Malwarebytes premium on the Intel Mac and the trial on the m1 Mac. I suspect the malware to come from my ssd I connected to both (from a dmg file). OS: macOS Big Sur (both devices) After quarantining the files and restarting the m1 Mac as suggested, I did a rescan and Malwarebytes detected nothing. But I see the "error" message so I had doubts about It. Then I've checked the locations and the files were gone. Here are my concerns: On the Intel Mac, Malwarebytes premium detects nothing. But the thing is, I did exactly the same installations on both devices, even more than on the m1 Mac... Then, I'd like to be sure that nothing is running on the m1 as well, after having these error messages. I surely did a restart for both and a scan and both detected nothing. Thanks for your help I really appreciate It, and hopefully this will help other people in the same situation.
Hello, before all, sorry if my english is bad. I've downloaded antimalwarebytes to find something wrong in my notebook because i'm having problems in some games and in web surfing. the scan showed me four malwares but i can't remove them and i'm scared to remove important files from my pc for error. i've followed the instructions of the topic "I'm infected - What do I do now?" and i'm now posting the results of the scans FRST and Additions. I hope you can help me, thank you. Addition.txt FRST.txt
Recently I made a stupid mistake and it resulted in my computer being infected by some malware/virus that has planted down some bitcoin miners. Playing video games was impossible because of drastic frame drops and using an virus scanner (I forgot how it was called because it was late at night and I was tired) it mentioned the name "bitcoinminer" or similar. Anyways, I managed to remove these miners to some extend, I can only guess, but one big problem hasn't been solved yet. This virus has somehow modified the administrator and blocked many popular anti-virus softwares or tools from lauching. Typical message: "An Administrator has prevented this program from launching...". It happens when I want to launch tdssskiller, JRT, adwcleaner and even the installation of mbam 3. Though I did manage to install Chameleon and remove the malwares. A re-scan has showed that my computer is clean, though I am not sure yet. I also tried to install mbam 3 using hidden admin profile but it gave me a runtime error. So, what can I do to fix this "administrator" problem? System: Windows 10 (64bit) Pro
