Hi everyone,

 

did you notice that whole HopZone site recently started to run some kind of miner that eats up to 100 % CPU?

 

Shame!

 

EDIT:

 

If you don't want HopZone to steal your CPU, add this to C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\hosts file

Now with that line in hosts file (see my first post) it doesn't eat more than 0.1 % CPU :)

 

BTW I won't mind them computing few hashes on my CPU, but it seems it would run forever!

Thanks for tip, adblock does not detect/block it so maybe it's time to try something different... :)

Probably yes, but it's VERY unethical.

There is probably a big flaw on whatever nation's laws.

 

If you don't like the concept, simply boycott the website.

MinerBlock chrome extension should do the trick.

Even tho, Webroot saved me from that already.

Hard to tell, as you, as a user, you accept their JavaScript :p

TPB did the same https://torrentfreak.com/the-pirate-bay-website-runs-a-cryptocurrency-miner-170916/
