A day ago i decided to try out cloud mining on my pc to mine some altcoins but after i stopped the cloud mining software i noticed that my PC processor speed meter is still running aggressively

i ran a malware detector on my computer and detect that my PC was under attack, there have been viruses that landed on my computer and then use the computer power to mine bitcoin or other coins

I have participated in cloud mining recently but not through my own pc but with other third party servers. This costs some fee but still its profitable.
Thanks for highlighting this issue. I am not aware about what kind of precautions we should take while mining.

Cloud mining is known to have a very big chance to be a scam. So I'm not surprised that instead of giving you money, they give you miner malware.
However, it would have been much more helpful if you would have given info about which website, link to the software and so on.

As a lesson, never install random programs from the internet. Also always check the CPU usage; if it's continuously high and you don't mine locally, maybe somebody else does.
And sometimes a scan with VirusTotal can give you some extra info (although it has its false positives too).

Some of the threads below tell about cloud mining,

1. Cloud farm-mining.com website is a scam!
2. start-mining.com scam, don't join this scam website
3. Is HashFlare About to Exit Scam ?
4. Cryptominingfarm.io is a scam cloud mining site
5. Seedhash.com Scam - Cloudmining

And you can find more on the scam accusation board, at least these things has become a reason to stay away from cloud mining.

I dont know what is this cloud mining software. But it doesn't look like cloud mining as if it was cloud mining, it should not use your computer ressources to do the mining. You surely installed a virus on your computer.

That is what you will get if you are mining with downloading the software because I heard that the software contain a virus that can steal our data. Besides that, it is impossible to get a big reward if we only use the software in our personal computer to mining cryptocurrency unless the coin can be mining using the computer.

Besides that, you don't have to download any software to mining because you already got a bad experience and I hope that you don't make the same mistake. Stay away from cloud mining because you will not make any profit with them, but you only lose the money without having a chance to make a profit in the future.

Well, there are a lot of sites out there asking us to download their software to help us monitor our cloud mining.

Some of the threads below tell about cloud mining,

1. Cloud farm-mining.com website is a scam!
2. start-mining.com scam, don't join this scam website
3. Is HashFlare About to Exit Scam ?

5. Seedhash.com Scam - Cloudmining

It has nothing to do with that bro, it is just a compromised software or a software attached with viruses.

It's an open secret if you first uploaded the application on https://www.virustotal.com/ you'll find out that this cloud mining are virus-infected, it seems you ignore all the warning and choose to proceed and you give permission to your anti virus to proceed although it is showing positive signs of viruses, this is a lesson for you.

Some cloud mining websites are real but many of them are fakes,they are either phishing websites or malware attackers that wants to steal passwords and private keys

Premium Antivirus can get rid of these fake softwares easily but one needs to be very careful when clicking on download links.

Hello, definitely yes. Mining is such a sphere which will never fall apart. You have some particular interest?

I was thinking about GPU miner options but some better known forum members strongly advised Antiminer S17 or T17 are the best two options represented on the market and on some official reselling sites. These miners are the most advanced on the marker these are called asic rigs

For example globemining com, this is my personal recommendation as I ordered there two times. Idea is that they do not sell replica, only original and registered devices.
