Coinhive shuts down | Avast



Cryptojacking stole the limelight away from ransomware at the end of 2017, becoming a major cyberthreat that continued into 2018. On March 8, 2019 Coinhive, the service that enables websites around the world to use browser CPUs to mine Monero, will shut down. Will Coinhive’s end also end browser-based cryptomining and jacking?
