    Unhappy CoinHive Warning On Every Page I Load

    I'm getting malware warnings about the CoinHive cryptocurrency miner on every page I load on PESFan. MalwareBytes is blocking an outgoing request on every page but I haven't seen anything that says the site is using the miner to generate income and it's basically malware.... Any ideas?

    Chrome warning:



    CoinHive is a Javascript library that when run, will utilise a web pages visitors CPU resources to mine for a Cryptocurrency. I'm assuming someone nefarious has placed this on PESFan given the lack of comms from admins about it.

    It looks like something was in one of the core file that shouldn't have been, it has been removed - I will catch up with the other admins once they are back from their hols.
