Websites like piratebay and faucethub and mining monero with the website visitor's CPU. I found the below blog about mining Monero even without a website like piratebay. Not sure is this workable. anyone tried?
http://bitcoinspedia.blogspot.my/2017/09/how-to-mine-monero-xmr-with-blog.html

This might actually be an interesting way for creators to make a little extra, but they should be open about it and not mine without any warning...

Right like showtime streaming service!!! Waiting for the lawsuit, there is no way they ran this past the lawyers!

https://www.google.com/search?q=showtime+streaming+service+mines+monero&ei=LNbLWYn6Gsj06ATX-4HICQ&start=10&sa=N&biw=1592&bih=844

Far more likely this was a rogue IT/WEB person's work.

Is there a way to block this script running in Firefox, I've found an add-on called NOSCRIPT (I've not yet installed it) but are there other/better alternatives ?
One suggestion it to put "https://coin-hive.com/lib/coinhive.min.js" into AdBlock, but I don't use that anymore (now using 'uBlock Origin', can't remember why I changed).

EDIT 1:
Another suggestion is to add "127.0.0.1 coin-hive.com/lib/coinhive.min.js" to the Windows 'host' file.

EDIT 2:
Also found this, https://github.com/hoshsadiq/adblock-nocoin-list

Hackers Exploiting Microsoft Servers to Mine Monero - Makes $63,000 In 3 Months

Mining cryptocurrencies can be a costly investment as it takes a monstrous amount of computing power, and thus hackers have started using malware that steals computing resources of computers it hijacks to make lots of dollars in digital currency.
Security researchers at security firm ESET have spotted one such malware that infected hundreds of Windows web servers with a malicious cryptocurrency miner and helps cybercriminals made more than $63,000 worth of Monero (XMR) in just three months.
According to a report published by ESET today, cybercriminals only made modifications to legitimate open source Monero mining software and exploited a known vulnerability in Microsoft IIS 6.0 to secretly install the miner on unpatched Windows servers.

Hello,
I have to reinstall windows 10 on which I have the GUI wallet installed monero-gui-win-x64-v0.11.0.0. Which files should I save and where do they find to restore the wallet content to the new installed windows?
Is this the file XMR_wallet.keys?
Thanks

Yes, it is a *.keys file you need to access your wallet.

I'm pretty sure all of these servers running IIS 6 are very old servers with older CPUs which is why they aren't gonna get the hash rate that you would expect with a newer CPU.  I've seen it where a company has some older servers that they are afraid to patch because they could cause some legacy app to stop functioning. So, they are put on a Do Not Patch (DNP) list. Not a good solution but it ends up being a stop gap until the application can be updated to a newer technology stack.

With the latest Windows QT wallet, how do I put listen=0 in the daemon config?
My bandwidth is strictly limited so I need to limit everything non essential.
With bitcoin you put that line "listen=0" in bitcoin.conf where the blockchain data is stored.
This is what I am trying to do, but for Monero QT windows 64-bit wallet :

Monero isn't a Bitcoin derivative, but there is a similar option: --p2p-bind-port 127.0.0.1
This will restrict listening to incoming connections to the loopback interface (ie, only those coming from the local machine).

I think it's set as "rpc-bind-port=127.0.0.1" in the config file, but I'm not 100% sure about that one since I don't use one.

Damn, we can use conf files for the GUI wallet? I guess I should do more reading! Tongue Thanks! Cheesy

I did not find a file with me!
I do not have a Monero folder with me!
Please someone who knows how to recover the wallet after reinstalling windows 10 to write.

I did the rpc-bind-port=127.0.0.1 and p2p-bind-port 127.0.0.1 with one and two switches under daemon startup flags, and mondero daemon could not start.  
Four tries with different flags.
I think this is the error it gives in log:
2017-09-29 05:48:35.956   10512   WARN    net.dns   src/common/dns_utils.cpp:487   WARNING: no two valid MoneroPulse DNS checkpoint records were received
Then it says cannot connect to 127.0.0.1 on the port number.
If I run the daemon without any flags, it synchs and runs fine.
I just want to cut down on my bandwidth since my ISP caps me.

What is the best gear to mine monero these days? I've understood that you don't need powerful hardware? And even mining with a processor is fine?
