  1. Hi, I have a problem in my windows pc with a site "monerohash.com", which I never visited and didn't know its existence before now (I apologize for my bad english, I'm from Italy🇮🇹 ). Every 30 seconds malwarebytes blocks a connection to that site (that I didn't asked for) telling me that the infected path is located in system32 (I will attach the notification here). Can someone please tell me how to fix this? I am really afraid about it. Thanks.
  2. What is GoogleCrashHandlerws? The Malwarebytes research team has determined that GoogleCrashHandlerws is a Monero miner. These miners are designed to earn cryptocurrency by using system resources. This one joins the MinerCircle Monero Pool on behalf of someone else then the owner of the system. How do I know if my computer is affected by GoogleCrashHandlerws? You may see this level of CPU use by the miner: and this type of vbs file in your list of programs to run at startup: How did GoogleCrashHandlerws get on my computer? Trojans use different methods for distributing themselves. This particular one was installed by a trojan. How do I remove GoogleCrashHandlerws? Our program Malwarebytes can detect and remove this 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 GoogleCrashHandlerws? After the reboot you can remove the vbs file that belonged to the Trojan from your list of startup programs. How would the full version of Malwarebytes help protect me? We hope our application and this guide have helped you eradicate this trojan. As you can see below the full version of Malwarebytes would have protected you against the GoogleCrashHandlerws miner. It would have warned you before the trojan could install it, giving you a chance to stop it before it became too late.
