Hi there,

I need some help in identifying and removing Coinhive PUA/Cryptominer. Gen. I've tried the following malware/antivirus tools but unable to identify which is the culprit source file responsible for it. the software tools which I've used so far are:
1. Avira AVG (Can only move to Quarantine, Full scan doesn't indicate anything)
2. Malwarebyte Premium (Can block connection to Coinhive, but full scan doesn't indicate anything).
3. Spyhunter (nothing)
4. Hitman Pro (nothing)
5. Adwcleaner (nothing)
6. Zemana AntiMalware (nothing)

I've also tried to uinstall, restart and reinstall both my broswers, Firefox and Chrome, but problem still there.

What else can I do? Please advise, it's driving me nuts. I'm running Windows 7 Pro on a laptop.

Thanks & Regards,
lky

Hi there,

After much tinkering, I think I finally know why I have the problem. My Mikrotik router got compromised by a JS cryptominer bug. Had to factory reset the whole Mikrotik router and patch the firmware, but I think problem has been resolved.

Thank you for dropping by... :)
