My understanding is that this crypto-mining generally is a script embedded into an ad from a 3rd party. It runs in the background on your computer while you are on that site. It uses your computers CPU and other resources to mine bitcoin. I don't think there is anything inherently harmful other then it bogs down your computer while it is running, and costs you electricity. Not sure it could or would do other nefarious things.



I would think running an ad blocker would stop it. But not 100% sure. It is also possible that google caught it and blacklisted the ad since the ads on Cockytalk are by google.


I'll have to see what Ken finds out once he gets a chance to look at it.

Ken has it fixed now. It was not a virus or trojan. MB classifies it as "riskware." It can be a valid way for sites to monetize but only when the coinhive use is fully disclosed. This was not done by CT though. As mentioned it was placed by third party ads. MB kept my PC from connecting to the harvesting site. That did not keep the code from running at other times evidently though.

Ken had to jump through many hoops that necessitated him having to buy a software upgrade and spend many hours working on this. Maybe there should be a way for us to contribute to the cost.

Gofundme pages are pretty easy to setup. I’m happy to donate & I'm sure many others would be too.

Should open a non-profit and solicit for money... Then pay people a wage for their time or buy new software with it.

Yancey, if you hear about a way to contribute, please post. I would happily donate to help with the site's costs.
