What is GPUMonitor.exe, gputemp.exe and gpulog.exe?

GPUMonitor.exe, gputemp.exe and gpulog.exe are bundled with free software downloads, and these files might look legit, but not if you ask the DrWeb anti-virus program. DrWeb classifies  gputemp.exe and gpulog.exe as BitCoin miners:

  • DrWeb Trojan.BtcMine.221
  • Malwarebytes Buy Trojan.Vbkrypt.gen
  • VIPRE Buy Backdoor.Win32.Ircbot.gen (v)
