Hello. I have a problem since a few weeks in Coinbase. Until july, I could enter in Coinbase without problem but now the complement block it and show a blank page instead Coinbase. Are this web mining?
Hey. Yes you're right, the site is currently on the blacklist (the blacklist became more strictly since version 0.54) and no, there aren't any running mining scripts on the site. Some scripts might use the web-wallets to store the mined coins, so the url landed on the blacklist. I'll change the blacklist in the upcomming version (will be published in a few days), to prevent this unessecary behaviour. At the meantime, you can just disable the blocker on coinbase :) Sorry for the trouble.
It worked great until it started reloading tabs for no reasons once for each tab. I don't know why it does that but I hate this behavior, so I'll find an other way to know when sites use mining scripts.
So salon.com has recently offered mining scripts as an alternative for people using adblockers. It fails to detect it. This doesn't fill me with confidence that it operates particularly sophisticated inteligence. ETA I am using an adblocker, and the mining script is running on my computer.
cap1000, a blog from malwarebytes showed a list of sites that uses mining. One of the sites is: y o u r p o r n . s e x y. A test shows Mining Blocker doesn't seem to block mining because I'm seeing cpu spike to 60-85%. Firefox 57.0, no adblocker installed.
