    Default Coin Miner malware back

    Looks like the coinminer malware is back, from allfontshere.press Like we had in the past.

    Then hopefully the coinminer blocking extension that I still have installed in the browser will do its thing.

    What does this mean to the uninitiated? I'm using a MacBook Pro with all the latest OS updates, as well as the latest version of Safari. What do I need to be paying attention to?

    Thanks!

    I haven't noticed anything unusual whatsoever relating to the subject of this post. Not yesterday and not today.

    FWIW, I'm not using any blockers or any anti-mining software whatsoever.

    The coin miner will increase CPU usage. The fans will turn on and one (or more cores) will be very heavily loaded. It is quite noticeable when it happens.

    I should add, it does not appear on the full site but on the mobile site. something to do with the theme.

    Confirmed, as soon as you change to the mobile theme, even from a regular desktop browser, MinerBlock picks up the miner.

    Yes, as glitch said. minerblock says "allfontshere.press", I don't know if that's a site or whatever.
