I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

So if you do not know who it is then it is for certain spam email.  I presume it is in your email Inbox (receiving it every day) and so blacklist it.

If you did click on it, run your own anti virus application and then restart in Safe Mode and run Malwarebytes.

John how did you find out where it is coming from please ?
Active Protection takes the fight to cryptojacking

While there were several headline-grabbing ransomware attacks during in 2017, another big threat started appearing at the same time that didn’t get the same coverage – illicit cryptomining.

John another question, probably I am going to open another question, I need to find a good and cheap IT insurance for my new IT company. any recommendation before I get scammed ?
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
I use Smart Whois (Tamosoft) and that is how I found out. Any web-based whois lookup will find this information.

Every once in a while, I see this from acquaintances but I delete them on sight.
ItaliabellaAuthor Commented:
ok, but what did you type ? the link I gave you ?
ItaliabellaAuthor Commented:
what is the website for smart whois please?
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
What do you mean by Insurance. I have not heard of regular insurance for this,

I use Mail.com (1 and 1 .com) and their spam control is excellent. I pay the annual premium fee and have my email forwarded to my email ISP here locally.
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
I copied the link above into Smart Whois which accepted the domain and gave me the information I gave you.

If you want web based Whois, use https://www.whois.net/
ItaliabellaAuthor Commented:
so smart whois from tamo sofdt is a paid software ?

I can have a job on a commercial building but they require me as a company to have an liability insurance...so I need to get one ..it's about time...If I want to keep working with commercial buildings..
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
Also, I never open such links. Rule 1: Do not open dodgy links.

The last virus I got was in 1994 on a Windows 3.1 machine and it was inadvertently delivered to me that way by my IT vendor back then . They gave me a free antivirus suite which eliminated the problem. First and last virus.
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
Smart Whois is paid but inexpensive software.

they require me as a company to have an liability insurance

That is a really different question. Talk to local insurance brokers (2 or 3 and select the one that makes sense).
