COINMINER MALLWARE

Refer to the announcement of Coinminer Mallware how to prevent it posted by Sunil on Feb.01, the advice is run the live update until status of protection is Your Norton now has the latest protection updates then restart the computer follow the Full System Scan, my question is should I do the Full System Scan even the my Norton has the latest protection updates (Its mean wheather the Auto protect has protected the Coinminer Mallware it self ?), as the full system scan took long time average 1-2 hours.

Awaiting the information.

B/regards,

Re: COINMINER MALLWARE

I think the suggestion is to do a full system scan after ensuring you have the latest malware definitions, to ensure nothing is hiding on your system

1 - 2 hours is not really that long for a full system scan, depending on the number of files on your system. Just set it up to run before you go to bed. You can also set the scan to shut down your computer after the scan. See the option box towards the bottom of the scan progress window.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Identity Safe data.
