Crypto-Loot: A New Service That Helps Websites Steal Cryptocurrency Using Your CPU

As we know, cryptocurrencies are on a rise and the use of cryptocurrencies are now seen in every sphere of digital space. Even popular websites like The Pirate Bay have been found generating revenue in to form of digital coins.

A few days ago, we have seen popular website The pirate bay kept their users in dark by attaching a cryptocurrency miner in site’s footer. The javascript uses CPU power of visitors to mine digital coins.

Majority of the sites using digital coin miner scripts have been using the script from Coin-Hive. Recently, the reports from Bleeping Computer throws light on a new player named Crypto Loot.

Let me tell you, Crypto Loot is just like Coin-Hive and it promises that the miner on the sites will go “unnoticed by users if the threads are set between 2-4”

Crypto Loot is much similar to coin hive and it keeps running in the background in order to mine Monero digital coins.

Coin-Hive basically charges 30% commission of the mined currency. On the other hand, the new service Crypto Loot just charges 12% of the mined currency which makes it the cheapest service right now available.
