miner.Bitcoinminer activity 7 and 9 detected from norton

Recommended Posts

Since a couple of weeks I'm always getting an bitcoin miner activity warning from my norton and even though I used the power eraser and malwarebytes the message is still popping up.
My Pc is also quite slow since then so I guess there is a connection. I would like to get help solving this issue.

Thank you

Hi,

What I was expecting to see was some references to
the IP addresses at:
159.60.0.20 port 450

or  port 49975.

As detailed in the Norton Image.
===

There is a reference to
Log2.systemlog.Host ....

I'm wandering if this is not the entry in the HOSTS file.

Find the Hosts file in your computer (It has not extention)
How to: https://www.thewindowsclub.com/hosts-file-in-windows

It may be hidden by the operating system.
Unhide files/folders Windows.
How To:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-ca/windows/show-hidden-files#show-hidden-files=windows-7
<<<>>>

Open it with Notepad.

If you find and references to 159.60.0.20 delete all the lines associated with that IP address.
Safe the File and restart the computer.
===

If the problem persists continue.

On the Norton Image there is also a reference to 192.168.1.109 port 4997.

Open Internet Explorer (IE)
On the Menu select Tools > Internet Options > Connection

Select: LAN Settings

The Automatically detext settings should be checked.

Under Proxy server remove the check mark and if you see a Port no. 450 or 4997 remove it
Click the OK  button

Exit IE and restart the computer normally.

Keep me posted.

I see.

If this does not solved the Norton issue then I suspect that Norton is finding some string that may be remnant of the infection.

You may try to check with them. Not sure if there are open on weekends.
