Excuse the scaremongering, but Bleeping Computer reports that the internet is now full of in-browser mining scripts with no slow down in sight. Previously reporting on the influx of cryptominers ever since Coinhive launched in mid-September, the amount of clones have increased and has spread to its victims like a diseased hooker unto unsuspecting Johns. From research on the topic, in-browser miners are usually deployed on questionable websites, such as piracy portals, illegal streaming services, adult portals, and others. A study by Palo Alto of over 1,000 sites engaged in cryptojacking found that 35% of these sites were hosted on .download and .bid domains. Not only embedded in a hi-jacked website's code, malicious ads have found their way into ad servers and also WordPress plugins. It is crystal clear that malware authors found their next payday in Coinhive. The next place Bleeping Computer expects to see Coinhive deployed next is adware, and especially the type of adware that hijacks search fields and inserts ads into search results.
