This article contains a link to a very interesting report in pdf (normally such information available only on pay sites). Ironically, this very report is saying that pdf files are among the top malicious file types, but hopefully this one is clear. Smiley

What's interesting to me in particular is that how is it possible and on which platforms can this happen?

Coinhive – Crypto Miner designed to perform online mining of Monero cryptocurrency when a user visits a web page without the user’s approval.

Also, is the implanted JS using computational resources only when you are on the sire or forever?
