Subject: SypHunter5 reports malware in perl distribution
Date: Sun, 15 Dec 2019 11:26:01 +0000 (UTC)
To: "bug-Perl-Dist-Strawberry@rt.cpan.org" <bug-Perl-Dist-Strawberry@rt.cpan.org>
From: Jeffrey Pimper <jpimper@pacbell.net>
I have been runnng Strawberry Perl 5.26.2.1-64bit successfully for several months.  Suddenly tonight SpyHunter5 reported that perl is infested with malware Trojan.CoinMiner.R.  It removed libstdc++-6.dll, dwp.exe and ld.gold.exe and

I tried to repair perl; same problem,  I uninstalled 5.26.2.1 and installed 5.30.1.1-64bit and got the same error. Is this a perl problem or a Spyhunter problem?
