Mesa.exe – Another BitCoin Miner

I’ve been seeing a large number of BitCoin miners appearing on some user’s machines. Mesa.exe is the latest I find.

Trojan.Win32.CoinMiner.ab, Trojan.BtcMine.75, a variant of Win32/CoinMiner.DV and Trojan.Win32.BtcMine.buhwax are some of the detection names Mesa.exe got when I uploaded it to VirusTotal. 

In case a BitCoin miner has been installed on your machine, you’ll probably notice it since it will use a lot CPU.
