Good Day Community, Ive been challenged for a while now with removing a bitcoin miner (Riskware.BitCoinMiner & Trojan.bitCoinMiner. Somehow it got installed on my server and whenever i think its gone it shows back up a day or so later. Ive used Malwarebyte its been able to detect quarantine and delete but it keeps coming back. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Along with scanning using Malwarebytes....use the programs below to clean, remove malware and remove adware.

 

Use CCleaner to remove Temporary files, program caches, cookies, logs, etc. Use the Default settings. No need to use the

Registry Cleaning Tool...risky. Pay close attention while installing and UNcheck offers of Google Chrome and Avast.

After install, open CCleaner and run by clicking on the Run Cleaner button in the bottom right corner.

CCleaner - PC Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download

 

Download 51a5f31352b88-icon_MBAR.pngMalwarebytes Anti-Rootkit (MBAR) to your desktop.

  • Warning! Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit needs to be run from an account with administrator rights.
  • Double click on downloaded file. OK self extracting prompt.
  • MBAR will start. Click "Next" to continue.
  • Click in the following screen "Update" to obtain the latest malware definitions.
  • Once the update is complete select "Next" and click "Scan".

Some malware was found and removed by Eset.

 

Doesn't look like you allowed Malwarebytes to remove what it found.....RiskWare.BitCoinMiner, C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEMPROFILE\APPDATA\LOCAL\TEMP\SVCHXOT.EXE.437096.GZQUAR, No Action By User, [914], [507845],1.0.4740

 

If that is the case then you should rerun Malwarebytes and allow it to remove what it finds including the BitCoinMiner.

 

Once you have done that and you still see evidence of the Coin Miner still active...then you will need to start a new topic in

the malware removal forum by following instructions below.

 

 

Please follow the instructions in the Malware Removal and Log Section Preparation Guide starting at Step 6.

  • If you cannot complete a step, then skip it and continue with the next.
  • In Step 6 there are instructions for downloading and running FRST which will create two logs.

When you have done that, post your logs in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum, NOT here, for assistance by the Malware Response Team.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log(s) along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. If you cannot produce any of the required logs...start the new topic anyway. Explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happened when you tried to create them. A member of the Malware Removal Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer.

After doing this, please reply back in this thread with a link to the new topic so we can close this one.

 

DO NOT bump your new topic. Wait for a response from one of the Team Members.

Actually i copied the text before I removed the files the scan detected. BitCoin.Miner just keep coming back. I noticed it had also exited my host file and i removed the entries. I will run frst when i get back to the computer.
