Undetectable trojan that started out as a bitcoin miner virus


Recommended Posts

So I have this nasty virus that started out as a bitcoin miner virus because every time I open taskmgr it goes up to 99% cpu and then goes back down. I though hmm maybe its a virus so i use Malwarebytes to see if I can delete it. Malwarebytes didn't detect anything so I thought it wasn't a virus i've tried everything nothing worked I reset my laptop to factory settings 3 times nothing worked. Also this may also be a rootkit because 1 time my whole laptop went unusable when I start up windows it says error program has not started and happened for all my programs on my computer I could not open anything even malwarebytes. Now I was scared I gave up a few weeks after I got the virus cause I thought it would get worse if I tampered with it. But then apparently the virus also uses your cpu using undetectable processes. I used processor explorer and autorun to see if I could find anything I found nothing suspicious. I had 0 programs using cpu but I am using 2% cpu I do not have a lot of programs running I only have 43. This virus is apparently also a worm because it traveled to 2 of my other computers probably through emails.Now Im really desperate for help because all my computers are really slow im focusing on fixing the carrier of the virus mt toshiba satellite intel because if the carrier of the virus gets taken down so does all the others. Please help me remove this virus its very hard to remove and unsafe.

Here are my specs, Thank You

win 8.1

Intel Pentium CPU 2020m 2,40GHz

Ram: 4.00 (3.88 usable)

Hi Men :)

My name is Aura and I'll be assisting you with your malware issue. Since we'll be working together, you can call me Aura or Yoan, which is my real name, it's up to you! Now that we've broke the ice, I'll just ask you a few things during the time we'll be working together to clean your system and get it back to an operational state.

  • As you'll notice, the logs we are asking for here are quite lenghty, so it's normal for me to not reply exactly after you post them. This is because I need some time to analyse them and then act accordingly. However, I'll always reply within 24 hours, 48 hours at most if something unexpected happens;
  • As long as I'm assisting you on Malwarebytes Forums, in this thread, I'll ask you to not seek assistance anywhere else for any issue related to the system we are working on. If you have an issue, question, etc. about your computer, please ask it in this thread and I'll assist you;
  • The same principle applies to any modifications you make to your system, I would like you to ask me before you do any manipulations that aren't in the instructions I posted. This is to ensure that we are operating in sync and I know exactly what's happening on your system;
  • If you aren't sure about an instruction I'm giving you, ask me about it. This is to ensure that the clean-up process goes without any issue. I'll answer you and even give you more precise instructions/explanations if you need. There's no shame in asking questions here, better be safe than sorry!;
  • If you don't reply to your thread within 3 days, I'll bump this thread to let you know that I'm waiting for you. If you don't reply after 5 days, it'll be closed. If you return after that period, you can send me a PM to get it unlocked and we'll continue where we left off;
  • Since malware can work quickly, we want to get rid of them as fast as we can, before they make unknown changes to the system. This being said, I would appreciate if you could reply to this thread within 24 hours of me posting. This way, we'll have a good clean-up rhythm and the chances of complications will be reduced;
  • I'm against any form of pirated, illegal and counterfeit software and material. So if you have any installed on your system, I'll ask you to uninstall them right now. You don't have to tell me if you indeed had some or not, I'll give you the benefit of the doubt. Plus, this would be against Malwarebytes Forums's rules;
  • In the end, you are the one asking for assistance here. So if you wish to go a different way during the clean-up, like format and reinstall Windows, you are free to do so. I would appreciate you to let me know about it first, and if you need, I can also assist you in the process;
  • I would appreciate if you were to stay with me until the end, which means, until I declare your system clean. Just because your system isn't behaving weirdly anymore, or is running better than before, it doesn't mean that the infection is completely gone;
    This being said, I have a full time job so sometimes it'll take longer for me to reply to you. Don't worry, you'll be my first priority as soon as I get home and have time to look at your thread;


This being said, it's time to clean-up some malware, so let's get started, shall we? :)

Sorry for the delay. The good news though is that I do not see any signs of infection in your logs, which means this system is clean :)
