Streaming sites mine cryptocurrency while you watch free movies

AdGuard discovered two Openload domains secretly mining for Monero without users’ knowledge or consent. Openload, one of the most popular streaming sites, has an estimated 330 million visitors per month. Videos from Openload are often embedded on other sites and, in many cases, the mining script loads when videos are launched. AdGuard estimated that the monthly earnings reach $95,000. – Ms. Smith, CSO http://ift.tt/2Ce9ro0
