Threat Database Malware Ingenering Group Inc Product

Ingenering Group Inc Product

The Ingenering Group Inc Product is an intrusive PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program) that many users found installed on their computers suddenly. The explanation for the presence of this annoying threat is that it is often attached to other more desirable products, in a tactic known as software bundling. If users do not check all of the installation options and menus specifically, they may miss the fact that several additional items may have been preselected to be installed on their devices.

As for the specific functionality of the Ingenering Group Inc Product, it also appears to be connected to a crypto-miner threat known as IdleBuddy. Crypto-miners are pieces of malware designed specifically to assume control over the infected system's hardware resources and then use them to mine for certain cryptocurrency coins, such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Monero, etc. While the system is under the influence of the crypto-miner, many simple processes that usually are resolved instantaneously - such as opening a window, starting a program, or using a Web browser, could now take minutes or even cause the system to freeze completely. Furthermore, due to the high utilization of hardware parts, they could start generating excessive amounts of heat that could overwhelm the cooling system and cause serious damage.

Many users report locating the PUP as the Ingenering Group Inc Product in their Control Panel and installed programs. When trying to get rid of it manually, the intrusive implant will open a window for IdleBuddy and ask for the uninstallation to be authorized. Apparently, users have to click on a link that is not provided in the program's window. In addition, users also have to successfully pass a CAPTCHA check. As both appear to be impossible to be completed, an alert window is generated stating that 'Uninstallation wasn't finished successfully!', meaning that the PUP will remain on the system. A professional security solution may be needed to remove the Ingenering Group Inc Product and ensure that no traces of it are left behind.
