    Hadn't seen this one before I read the post, so last night I went on a few well known torrent sites and found it mostly in the XXX section on all of them. Depending on the browser I was using it got stopped by Adguard, Script blockers/Tampermonkey or Malwarebytes Pro. It looks like it'll only run in the browser while on those sites so if someone does go to sites like that I'd suggest some script blocking extensions.


    Update: Hmm, I'm noticing higher than normal CPU usage on some pages on Reddit this morning. I'll have to check later on my desktop cause I can't find anything using the laptop. With ad revenue decreasing because of everybody using ad blockers, more and more Sites are trying to make money by mining and it's just possible ?

    Interesting. I wasn't on one of "those" sites (too old to fool with that) but was going with a link from another forum when MBAM caught it.

    There's been a lot of cryptomining lately, involving some movie sites as well as regular sites.

    AdGuard says the use of this kind of software combined with secrecy, dubbed "cryptojacking," is in full swing on video streaming and ripper websites including openload, Streamango, Rapidvideo, and OnlineVideoConverter.

    Even though it's mostly done on "those" kind of sites, you know it's really out of hand when it's being done on a Premiere Service that you're paying for. https://www.theverge.com/2017/9/26/1...onero-coinhive

    All that does is automate the host file update process.

    To do it manually, you need to first open Notepad as an admin.
    The click "file" and select "open".
    change from text documents(.txt) to All Files
    search for the host file in the above address, or just paste this in the box requesting File Name: C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc

    Select hosts(the one with a blank sheet of paper icon:
    hey guys i got hit with a drive by download norton says it blocked it?-image-002.png

    Now that it is opened with admin privileges, you can make additions and changes:

    Then remember to Save, then close it.
    No restart is needed.
    All it does is block those specific websites from your system.

    This is also great for child protection as kids know how to use and turn off add blockers, but most anyhow, have no idea about the host file.

    oh ok so the ones you posted are pretty much the same as his stuff so its pretty much simpler to just do it yourself instead of a program, unless the program does auto updates and so forth??

    I prefer to do it myself.
