Trojan BitCoinMiner Infection

Recommended Posts


My PC hase been infected by a sticky bitcoin miner and I decided to try my chances at resolving this issue without resolving to reinstalling windows from scratch, so thank you in advance. 

The malware calls itself "SecurityHealtSystray.exe" and loads the cpu to 100% whenever task manager is not open and hides itself when openning task manager (actually quite happy that the devs included this function, makes using the computer possible without lag 🤔):



I have been looking on several forums and found cases similar to mine and so the process can only be viewed with process explorer or something similar:


Similar to other cases I found, the malware is detected but comes back after a reboot whatever I do.

I used mwb with PUP's and PUM's set to "Always" as recommended in other posts to scan (I scanned twice in a row and got two different results so included them both). One thing that did look odd in the logs is that the Trojan.BitCoinMiner.Generic line under the "File: " section has a "Removal Failed" error which I did not see in posts made by other users. I also included logs for scans using FRST.

Thank you for your advice and help.

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.
