GamerMiner MinerPack contains various popular and freely available mining software that are trusted and used by hundreds of thousands of people around the world. Developers of these miners earn their living by adding a small developer fee to the software. For example, a miner with %1 developer fee will mine %1 of the time for its developer. Therefore, it is also very important for them to develop quality miners which have a good reputation in the community. Some of the miners are open source, meaning that all the source code of the software is accessible to anyone interested.
Miners and antivirus software don’t get along well. But, that’s not the fault of miners or antivirus. Thats the fault of bad people. With the rise of cryptocurrencies, Miners created a great opportunity for them to make easy money. They used trojan viruses or other techniques to install miners to hundreds of thousands of computers around the world, to mine cryptocurrency without owners knowledge for their benefit. This caused antivirus companies to flag miners as malware.
It is safe to download and use popular miners from their original source, but in most cases, you will have to define an exception rule in your antivirus software.
