After hearing about Andy's Cryptomining antics that happened last year, i decided to look over it and see if it's still continuing.
They made the file an offline installer so it cannot be scanned using online scanners like Virus Total.
I scanned it with the only programs I had running in my VM, Comodo Cloud and Zemana Anti-Keylogger, it seemed clean.
after installing the program I did a run and the VM seemed a lot slower, but when I checked task manager, it didn't show any program that was hogging the VM's CPU.
I then installed Malwarebytes and found many Cryptominers hidden in the programdata folder.

if you would like me to retry and take a video, let me know (my computer is very low-end)
