    Following quite a bit of new stories on javascript exploits on bitcoin miners on various websites with known entities doing so.

    The current one on this website is from coinhive.com, which is well known in the past few days.

    The javascript code is also very familar and can be caught in a simple honeypot if you have one configured.

    ...or you could just block the domain and magically watch your CPU go from 100% to 0%.

    As far as I'm aware it's all done in javascript. The problem is that it uses your computer's resources and power to do perform the calculations and someone else gets rewarded for your efforts. This can be done intentionally, by websites adding it on their pages side-by-side with ads or replacing ads completely; Or unintentionally by hackers finding exploits in code and injecting the javascript onto websites and having other websites host the code and provide the user base to generate the traffic needed to generate money.

    Ah, looks like uBlock has blocked Coinhive on this page. So yeah it seems like Asmoranomar is correct.

    I've already sent an admin a message a while back, but I don't know if it was the right one. If anyone knows how to get in touch with someone please keep sending those messages.

    Did a system scan and that bitcoin Trojan was found. Deleted. Question whether I need to use my backup image now.
