BKDR_BTMINE.MNR is a backdoor Trojan that turns an affected computer system into an involuntary Bitcoin miner. BKDR_BTMINE.MNR installs the mining software onto infected PC systems. BKDR_BTMINE.MNR uses the PC system's resources to solve Bitcoin blocks for creating more Bitcoins. A Bitcoin "block" is a complex cryptographic problem. BKDR_BTMINE.MNR installs three different mining software and runs whatever the computer system's processing speed can enable. To help speed up the processing, BKDR_BTMINE.MNR downloads necessary drivers for the GPU and CPU of the infected computer system. If blocks are solved, attackers obtain ownership of the created Bitcoins. Get rid of BKDR_BTMINE.MNR as early as possible.
