List of sites that try to run mining software in the background

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Not sure what section this would fit in. Mods please feel free to move it to an appropriate location.

 

Please NOTE: I and anyone else using this forum nor site admins, moderators, owners, etc are not responsible for you deciding to explore anything listed here and getting infected or other problems occurring as a result. This is just a list for your information

 

This will be a list of sites i've found to try and run various miners in the background on your computer. It will be updated periodically when I have time. Please feel free to send me sites that you have found do so so I can add them.

I thought it might be useful to have a list of these sites somewhere so people know what areas to avoid and/or add to their blockers

 

Ways to prevent unauthorized mining

Spoiler
  • Block every miner you come across or read about
  • Turnoff JavaScript
  • Run a good antivirus and anti-malware program
  • Periodically check task manager for unauthorized programs and heavy cpu/gpu usage when there shouldn't be any

 

 

 

I will try to keep it somewhat organized by: Site type, miner type, sites that have in the past but don't now (supposedly), and other categories you may suggest.

 

Coinhive.com, coin-hive.com, and coinhive.min.js are possibly the biggest provider of said website mining. Blocking it can help (not guaranteed though) prevent miners specific to this provider from popping up

 

When you suggest a site, please do not link it, just the name and suffix should suffice. Type of site, type of miner used if possible, and other information that may be helpful is welcome.

I think I once stumbled to a website after getting redirected and it triggered my AV and it says it blocked malware from the URL coinhive.com, preventing its download and execution.

I don't mind as long as they are disclosing it.

And as long as they are not trying to install something in the background so you will continue mining even after leaving the site.

 

To be frank, if annoying ADs weren't so commonplace, ADblock wouldn't be as popular as it is now, and keep in mind, I said ANNOYING ADs.

Maybe AD companies should keep their dicks in their pants.

 

I'll try to remember this thread if I find anything.

coinhive.com is one of the big mining providers for this type of thing.

Will this site still mining even after i close the tab?

As far as I know it does due to how they have implemented it but I'd be careful anyway.

I’d prefer process explorer or process hacker as they view more and more detailed than task manager

I guess AV programs can tell if you consented mining or not.

Yeah those are pretty good. The real problem is if they spoof legitimate windows processes. It's quite a bit more difficult to find them then. Sometimes they'll even go as far as to use the default paths for said processes...
