Same here, never encountered or even though about while browsing. Tho, my malwarebytes didn't report anything lately. Are there any bigger websites that are doing this or just some smaller random ones?

Are you using an updated release of malwarebytes and is it paid? If yes, then you're all good.
I asked about it cause your anti-virus/malware might be missing the mining activity on web browsers due to the fact that it's not updated to the latest definition.
AFAIK, they blocked browser mining since the last quarter of 2017.


I'm using malwarebytes, but I remember that it never caught the coinhive script that was running on Piratebay. I visit often enough, just never really paid attention since I leave as soon as I find what I want from there. By the time I read the announcement from them, they had already taken it off so I couldn't tell if Malwarebytes didn't work or I wasn't an affected user. In fact, never had any alerts from malwarebytes, so I guess I'm not visiting these bad sites? Mine's fully updated, just the free version.

That's impossible, there's no free version for malwarebytes. After 14 days of installing (free trial), the real time protection, anti malware along with web protection will be subject to inactive state.
I supposed you meant a cracked version? If I'm correct, you definitely experienced the coinhive script on Piratebay. It's only undetectable.

I will start keeping a list of sites that I come across. Most of them as of recent have been cryptocurrency news sites or aggregators.
That's great, I'll wait for that list that you'll make so that we will all be aware of those websites that are running a script to our browsers for them to mine with our PC.

I rarely visit crypto news website now because there are updates on social media so I'm reading most of the time there.

I agree with bill gator's suggestion that you should create a new list for that one.

It seems that OP really isn't that interested in publishing their list in a thread here, so I've decided to do so myself. I would love for them to contribute the list they're working on as well, because my thread won't be able to take off without input from the community.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3130937

This is where I will be compiling a list of the aforementioned sites.
Good initiative bill! Well maybe Spazzer is just busy and still needs enough of time to start his own thread for that list that I have mentioned.

I think it will be good if two of you start working together for that list. That will be one of the best compilation about what are the websites that are mining with our browsers.

Hmmm I've seen identical website for this thread. https://fossbytes.com/block-cryptocurrency-mining-in-browser/

I think it will be good if two of you start working together for that list. That will be one of the best compilation about what are the websites that are mining with our browsers.

Hmmm I've seen identical website for this thread. https://fossbytes.com/block-cryptocurrency-mining-in-browser/

That website doesn't look too similar to the thread, just suggests similar extensions. I wouldn't think too much of it, unless you can notice a part plagiarized in a blatant way. It seems they are a bit of a busy person, but they're into the idea and reserved a post in the thread I made. It looks like a good sign, and if anybody else would like to contribute; feel free.

I will contribute to https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3130937 thread that bill gator created once I have a larger list.

Looking forward to you contributing, and even if you don't have an impressive list built I would love to even have you throw up a couple of sites. If you only have one or two to contribute, that's fine, we can build it one site at a time from one user at a time if need be. Whenever you get a chance though and however you feel comfortable doing it is no problem with me. Thanks for hopping on board and reserving your seat.

Well that just came to my mind, I wouldn't think of it much now.

Good luck to your compilation, I bookmarked the thread.
