I cleared Firefox's history this day and shut browser. Then I reopened it and now no any warnings here... But what will happen tomorrow? No more warnings?

This ain't anything new. Happens all the time. Makes me mad. I mean who understands this ****? I bet 99% of all the computer users don't even know what viruses and malware is. I know I don't. How is anybody supposed to act responsible about this, if they don't understand the problem? I wish the ghost of Babe Roth or some other heavy hitter would knock the internet satellite out of orbit. Hell, I haven't been able to get a new game to load on my machine for about 10 years. I think PC stands for personal confuser not Personal Computer.

Unfortunately it came back though I kept problem already solved... But main thing is that Avast will block that (trojan?) malware away from my PC. No matter how many times I will see same warning in this forum.

My Norton software has been blocking coinhive.min and cryptonight-asmjs.min for about the last two weeks when I visit the SPMBT or SPWW2 forums.

I am using Mircosoft Edge as my browser.

Exclamation Re: Virus infection in this forum?

Quote:
The Coinhive Miner Trojan is commonly bundled with other free programs or browser extensions that you download off of the Internet. Unfortunately, some free downloads do not adequately disclose that other software will also be installed and you may find that you have installed Coinhive Miner without your knowledge.

Once this malicious program or browser extension is installed, the Coinhive Miner will inject an in-browser Monero miner from coin-hive.com/lib/coinhive.min.js, which uses more than 50% of your CPU’s power and graphics cards power. What this means, is that when the miners are running you will find that your computer is running slower and games are stuttering or freezing because the Coinhive Miner Trojan is using your computer’s resources to generate revenue for themselves.
This will cause your CPU to run at very hot temperatures for extended periods of time, which could shorten the life of the CPU.

When infected with the Coinhive Miner, other common symptoms include:

Very high CPU and graphics cards usage
Web browser is using more than 50% of the CPU power
PC connects to coin-hive.com/lib/coinhive.min.js
Windows minimize and maximize slowly, and programs run slower
Programs don’t launch as quickly
General slowness when using the PC or Web Browser
FWIW I have installed Privacy Badger and it and my normal protection software does not report a problem to me...all I have is a mild warning regarding www.newssltest.com

I installed Malwarebytes and now I get a message saying coinhive is being blocked

My contact with Shrapnel tells me

"We are still looking. Three different companies besides us have scanned our site, including Google. No one has found any maleware."

so it's being looked into but it's still a mystery
