    I stumbled across ZeroDot1's list when I was searching for a comprehensive coin miner block list and I'm glad to see it's recommended here. I recently flashed AdvancedTomato on my old router and noticed the adblock option so I added that list to protect all of my devices in one go.

    You Can File Complaints About Cryptojacking With the FTC


    More good information I found an Bleeping computer today:

    The US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is now open to taking complaints from US users about cryptojacking —the practice of using JavaScript code to mine cryptocurrencies inside users' browsers without notifying them in advance or requesting permission.

    While cryptocurrency mining has been a thing for years and is the primary and only method through which new cryptocurrencies are generated, mining was usually done via special hardware rigs or custom software installed on users' computers.

    Generating cryptocurrency via these two methods has been usually pretty hard, especially for malware authors, as it required tricking users into install malware or hacking countless of servers across the web.

    They transferred from GitHub to GitLab, and I just updated the links in the first post accordingly

    Kept checking GitHub and wondering why there wasn't an update. Thanks for taking care of us.

    You're welcome, I was wondering too, as I use the direct link to the files.
    But then I decided to go to the site and saw this:
    GitHub - ZeroDot1/CoinBlockerLists: Simple lists that can help prevent cryptomining in the browser or other applications.
