Yesterday I found a process in task manager and I didn't know what it was.
It had a weird name and no description.
I went open file location and it brought me to a folder with a few files in it.
I opened the file named "d" in notepad and I saw username password and a url.
It was hashpower.co and it's about bitcoin mining, it shows the algorithm and all.
I have a zip if anyone is interested.

So how does this work?
Is it harmful for my PC, except that it slows my PC down, because of CPU usage?
Do they really get money off of this?
