Hey everyone! My PC is currently infected with a Bitcoin Mining virus and I'm just looking around if there are still steps to take in order to fight this curse orinevitably go for the easy route and just wipe and reformat. Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance!SOLVED: Thanks to the people at Bleeping Computer. Here is the link if anyone has the same infection:
How it happened:
The virus successfully injected itself into my computer masking itself as an Nvidia application. I was working, and suddenly an Nvidia update ran but it was running with cmd, so it was a bit sketchy. But it was my mistake that I ignored it. It was able to inject itself into the registry, and powershell to run its network activities through that phase. This was left unchecked for about 2 hours, by then it had already completed its download and was running autonomously in the background. I turned on Task Manager, but would only show in "less detailed" mode. Once clicked on more details, it forces itself close.
Successfully located the directory of the virus in C:/ProgramData. Size is about 2.8GB, attempted to delete but cannot fully since there are tasks still running in the background. The file is now about 8 MB. Malwarebytes has successfully blocked it from re-downloading in the background. It's somewhat a vaccine, I still have the virus in the PC, but it's in a dormant state because of it's network restrictions.
It's shown to be running through powershell to do its network activities and registry editor to block out task manager and run autonomously in the background. Are there steps to try and remove this thing from the registry editor and also the powershell?
Windows Defender - Detects virus, attempts to remove, but redetects soon after removal.
Malwarebytes - Detected virus, removed virus, does not detect virus anymore even if it still here but successfully blocks it from using network activities.
rkill - No detections at all.
HitmanPro - No detections at all.
Spybot - Still currently scanning.
Accessed HKEY_CURRENT_USEMicrosoft/Windows/CurrentVersion, somewhere along there and injected lines to run files ending with .vbs (was the first stage).
Signs of it using powershell to run its network activities.
Located in C:/ProgramData in a hidden folder named "NVIDIA Corporation." File size is about 2.5GB - 2.8GB when it's successfully downloaded all its files.
Inside the folder you will find a lot of NVIDIA logs to make it appear legit, although there a lot of .json as well.
NVIDIA Web Helper.exe (Im assuming this is the mother task since I can't fully delete "NVIDIA Corporation" folder because of this task).
-> "C:\Program Files (x86)\NVIDIA Corporation\NvNode\NVIDIA Web Helper.exe" index.js
If there is no hope left, and I am forced to reformat. Do I need to reformat both my drives or do I only reformat the boot drive?
Is there any way to combat these network activities with cmd prompt or powershell?
If it has injected itself to registry editor, can you alter that?
