Issue with BitDefender and Application Coinminer GE in InetCache detection

Recommended Posts

I noticed this pots and have the same problem:

Hi.

A few days ago, my bitdefender antivirus started detecting a threat named: application.coinminer.ge. The folder where the virus is located is C:\Users\USER\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\Low\IE. In this folder, the threat creates a folder with a file in it named stat[1].htm. - note the 1 is replaced by 2, then 3 and so on after each deletion by bitdefender. (I couldn't find out anything about this online.)

I ran a malwarebytes scan but it didn't find anything, i even activated my 14 day free trial just in case it were to pick it up again, but it didn't.

I also ran spyhunter5, which found some vulnerabilities but not this one.

It keeps popping up about 5-10 times a day, at random times.

I tried deleting everything in the folder as well as uninstalling internet explorer, which didn't help.

Hi,

Please download the attached Fixlist.txt file to  the same folder where the Farbar tool is running from.
The location is listed in the 3rd line of the FRST.txt log you have submitted.

Run FRST and click Fix only once and wait.

The Computer will restart when the fix is completed.

It will create a log (Fixlog.txt) please post it to your reply.
===

If the problem persists and Chrome is Synced with other Devices reset it.

https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/214325-chrome-secure-preferences-detection-always-comes-back/
https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/185277

Execute the suggested fix.

Restart the computer normally.
===========

Please post the Fixlog.txt and let me know what problem persists.
