vmnat.exe trojan - zproxy.lum-superproxy.io

Recommended Posts

Started getting alert after alert from different IP's for a domain called zproxy.lum-superproxy.io that was going through vmnat.exe but I've also noticed it say brave.exe on some of the alerts. I believe I received about 50 in the last day or so, scanning says there is no malware on my computer, I also scanned the Ubuntu VM I have through VMWare with ClamAV and it didn't detect anything either.

What are these PowerShell scripts for? Did you create them?

Task: {39B95A46-AEDB-44BB-8261-60400583F610} - System32\Tasks\Crypto Update => powershell -ExecutionPolicy ByPass -File "C:\Users\Michael\Documents\ZEC\MinerCheck.ps1"

You have an old compromised version of Java on the computer. I would recommend that you uninstall any old version of Java and if you really need it then keep it updated at all times https://java.com

Java 8 Update 191

I notice your Keepass database is also behind in version. It shows as 2.40 and the current release is 2.44   https://keepass.info/news/n200120_2.44.html


Your System Restore is disabled. I would highly recommend that you enable it and create a new System Restore Point even if you are using SnapShots or other backup software

ATTENTION: System Restore is disabled (Total:893.59 GB) (Free:513.54 GB) (57%)

Your Windows Defender keeps failing to update and complete a scan. You should manually intervene and update it and run a scan to quell further update and scan alert, issues.


Are you using the Bonjour Service on purpose to detect devices on the network with a broadcast? The Event Logs show that it appears to be affecting the svchost process and crashing it.  Though it could possibly have been while you were scanning with and cleaning with AdwCleaner as it may have terminated the process.
Personally, if you don't use or need the Bonjour service I'd uninstall it. It's a very noisy network program.

Can you review the following link and look at cleaning up and resetting your Brave Browser as well. That file you have listed is probably in one of it's config files.
