Once the malicious Nscpucnminer32.exe Monero Miner is activated, it uses up the CPU power of your machine to mine bitcoins. Is all of this confusing for you? If it is, let’s start from the top. CPU – which stands for “central processing unit” – is responsible for the running of your operating system. Every single program relies on CPU to work properly. Because the malicious Trojan uses up all the power, your computer might become unstable and even unresponsive. Needless to say, with Nscpucnminer32.exe Monero Miner running on your computer, it is possible that you will not be able to use it at all. When it comes to the “mining” process, the Trojan’s primary purpose is to perform Bitcoin mining. Bitcoins is a virtual currency/payment system, and mining is the process of verifying and recording payments. New Bitcoins are created as a reward for miners, and so by exploiting multiple machines to mine for Bitcoins, cyber criminals are capable of generating profit very easily and quickly. Although the process of mining is not dangerous for your virtual security, it can make your PC useless, or it could even damage it, which is why you need to delete the Trojan ASAP.
