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)
GPUMonitor.exe is detected too:
- AVG BitCoinMiner.B
- Malwarebytes PUP.BitCoinMiner
So if you see these files running, someone is making money while you pay the electric bill.
