Browser Redirect with Pup.bitminer

Recommended Posts

SCENARIO: Can't wipe a suspected Root virus out.

INFECTION: Malware identifies Pup.bitMiner as a recurring problem as soon as a Browser Redirect occurs.


I'm running into a Browser Redirect virus on my daughters computer. It is very much like Google Redirect, though I am unsure if that is the culprit. I have run MBAM and it cleans up what occurs, but then Mozilla runs, the redirects still occur, and the virus as well as PUP.bitMiner are right back in place. This leads me to believe it is a RootKit style infection.


I verified that there is no proxy server in place, so the network is running fine at home.

I've used: MBAM, CCleaner, Registry Booster (to see if the registry was a culprit), and even STOPzilla (yeah, that was a huge mistake as MBAM immediately found 3 new Trojans after installing it).

I read the instructions at http://forums.malwarebytes.org//index.php?showtopic=9573 and created an account so that I could attach the two files to this post.

In advance, please accept my thanks for the assistance, and for the service you folk are providing the rest of us.
