Hi @VinodCM1 ,

You can use a tool called Stinger. It helps to clear WMI entries commonly used by Mining.

Please also check if there's any unknown task under Schedule Tasks.

in the alert it was server name (DC server), so by using the siem tool we got to know from which workstation and user was used mining weblink and run full scan.
