Hi,

 

I noticed today (though it has been happening for a few days at least) that my antivirus software wasn’t working. When I tried to run the app, a box popped up to say avpui.exe is missing. When I looked at the folder contents, it was only shortcuts. I run Windows 10 on my machine and my Kaspersky Internet Security version 21.3.10.391
 

I ran the virus scan that I downloaded from Kaspersky’s website and it detected the following- (Screenshot attached)

HEUR:Backdoor.Win64.Agent.gen

not-a-virus:HEUR:RiskTool.Win32.Convagent.gen

HEUR:Trojan.Win32.Miner.gen

Trojan.Multi.GenAutorunTaskFile.a

 

Then i unisntalled, reinstalled and ran a scan and it found two more. (attached)

HackTool.MSIL.HackKMS.gen

HackTool.Win32.KMSAuto.om

 

My concern is whether there are more lurking somewhere and if I should do a full wipe of my machine.

 

Thank you,

CWW

Thanks, Nexon! That’s strange because I don’t have MS Office on my machine. But thanks for pointing that out :D

Okay, maybe someone downloaded. I am a happy Open Officce user :smiley:

Are the other files to worry about? I read that they are used for crypto mining.
