Came into pc room and noticed gpu fan was higher than usual, after moving the mouse it went back to idle. This really sounds like a mining virus, what do you guys think?

maybe your antivirus scans your computer when you're idle.

maybe those scans like to play metro last light as well.

Probably, it could be Skynet.

Joking aside I believe it's a mining virus
