Hi guys,

What is cgm.exe? Is it part of McAfee Security Suit?

Re: cgm.exe

Have you scanned it with

McAfee Communities: Anti-Spyware, Malware & Hijacker Tools

Also load it on www.virustotal.com and see what it says.

What folder is it in?

I am scanning my PC for this file at the moment so will post back if I find it.

what Mcafee version are you running?

Re: cgm.exe

I found 5 or 6 different files with the name "cgm.exe". One of them is a valid McAfee file and is found in the %TEMP% directory. One is definitely malware. The rest are "unknown". So everything depends on where this file is found and what it's file size is.

Re: cgm.exe

Thanks.

The conclusion from www.virustotal.com was divided. From "trojan" to "not avirus" file.

not-a-virus:Risktool.Win32BitCoinMiner.cdz

TROJj_GEN.RCBH1AA

It is in a folder called cgnew in my documents. I scanned with McAfee, but it didn't bother it.

I have SecurityCenter 11.6

Re: cgm.exe

McAfee may ignore the file but it's best to get a second opinion. Try a scan with Malwarebytes free version. If you have a subdirectory (folder) in Windows called "miner" then you've got BitCoinMiner. You'll know if you've got bitcoin mining going on, because your cpu will be active most of the time.
