    HI! Recently, I noticed that my imac began to warm up very strongly to 86 degrees when I just turn it on and do nothing

    I opened the monitoring system and noticed two tasks that load 100 percent, I took a screenshot and they immediately disappeared.

    Google did not give requests for them!

    Such a question! I was hacked?

    It's a cryptocurrency miner that was likely installed along with a download of some sort.

    Malwarebytes for Mac will likely be able to remove it. You can use the free version for this.

    I thought so, knowingly loads the processor and video card

    I installed avast and found the files, deleting them manually, will this help?

    Yes, that should do it.

    But MalwareBytes (running in "free mode") is "all you need"...
