Hello!
You’re being mislead by different articles…

XMRig in itself is not a virus, but it can be used with malicious intent.

This is what a group of cyberhackers have done, by installing XMRig on users’ machines, whilst making it seem like Adobe Flash.

This is not what Salad does, since we ask for your permission to run the miner.

XMRig in itself is not a virus, if and when downloaded from safe sources, like when Salad does.

Next time research it in more depth.
