Be careful !!!! How to block a cryptominer with your browser?

By NKthegreat | DrCrypto | 20 Apr 2021


Hi guys, do you know about cryptomining highjacking ??

When you open at a site then it uses the CPU of your PC to mine cryptocoins (Most of them are unthorised).

Open such site and after open the task manager to see the CPU usage (after 20 sec).

 

But how i can block them from my pc ?

If you use Mozilla Firefox you can block them !!!

The Firefox will inform you for the extistance of unthotised cryptominers.

 

I know that this information is very useful and you must tell this at every guy you know ! to be more safe during his "surfing" at the web.

 

The photo was taken from https://blog.mozilla.org/firefox/block-cryptominers-with-firefox/ where you can also find some more information.
