minergate gui miner problem


lucadgv asked 3 months ago

Hello,
I’m using minergate to get some monero with my pc –
Now because of the new fork I am forced to use the last release of the gui miner in order to continue to undermine xmr.
But when I try to download minergate gui miner 8.1, Chrome blocks the download, warning that it is dangerous software.
it’s normal ?
do you know if minergate’s gui miner 8.1 contains any viruses?
How can I solve this problem ?
Thanks for your help

Hi Lucadgv,
 
I haven’t heard anything about Minergate GUI miner 8.1 containing a virus. Perhaps upload the file to VirusTotal.com for a scan by all the major antivirus programs. If only a few report malware, then it’s probably OK, depending on how they report it. If they say that it’s a Potentially Unwanted Program / Cryptocurrency Miner, then it’s probably fine to install it. If they report a trojan of some kind, then I’d recommend against installing it.
