cpm.exe, CPUMiner and LLC “Kelte-Proekt” – Removal Instructions

I just ran into a Bitcoin miner this morning called cpm.exe. If you have cpm.exe on your machine, you’ll see it in the Task Manager:

The cpm.exe file is digitally signed by a Ukrainian company called LLC “Kelte-Proekt”:LLC Kelte-Proekt cert

cpm.exe was bundled with an unofficial download of Google Chrome:

You can easily remove cpm.exe with FreeFixer. Just select cpm.exe under “Registry Startups” and “Processes”.

Hope that helped you figure out what cpm.exe is, how it got onto your machine and how to remove it.

Thanks for reading.
