Lately I've had two things showing up in my Activity Monitor crushing my CPU and battery. They are called Clunist and Sauroctonos. Is this malware? What is it? They keep popping up at random a few times a day.
I've googled endlessly and tried finding the source. Any info, help, advice to figure this out and get it off my Mac would be much appreciated. Attached screenshot.

Hello and welcome.

I am not familiar with either of those processes. As Clunist is installed in /usr/local/bin, it may be a a part of something else you have installed?

You could try downloading and installing Malwarebytes for Mac to check for malware.
