Anatova ransomware has been analyzed by malware researchers from McAfee Labs. They have pointed out that the Anatova ransomware is disguising itself as games and software, thus tricking users into downloading and executing the virus.

Anatova is distributed through peer-to-peer networking, masqueraded as free downloads for games and applications to lure unsuspecting users into downloading the cryptovirus.

Once I noticed my CPU usage was 99% all the time and the process that was using that was some sort of crypto mining virus. Installed Malwarebytes, scanned the PC and it removed it.

Same happened with me too. Was playing CS:GO and noticed that game is not even hitting 100 fps. Opened task manager and found out that some crypto mining software was utilizing 100% CPU
