mpchc64.exe – Bitcoin Malware

Do you see this file on your hard-drive:
C:\Documents and Settings\%USER%\Application Data\Adobe\Flash Player\SpeedCache\mpchc64.exe

Then you have been infected by a bitcoin miner. It will use your computer’s CPU to mine bitcoins. Take a look in the Windows Task Manager and you’ll see that it is using quite a lot of CPU.
