Hello,

i know Webroot Protect us from  Cryptojacking Malwares.

but when i check my browser from  https://cryptojackingtest.com/ show “ you are not protected!! “

my webroot filtering extensions and add-on are install & active on my Browsers.

when i install Qualys BrowserCheck CoinBlocker extensions and visit   https://cryptojackingtest.com/  , immediately blocked site and show alert.

 

Thanks

Hello @durantash 

 

My Firefox Browser is Protected. I also use uBlock Origin but not sure what was protecting my Browser?

 

 

 

It must be Firefox itself!

Have a look at this: https://www.zdnet.com/article/google-to-crack-down-on-cryptojacking-on-chrome/

 

I don’t have this installed but maybe good for you? https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/minerblock/emikbbbebcdfohonlaifafnoanocnebl?hl=en

 

But I do have this installed: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/ublock-origin/cjpalhdlnbpafiamejdnhcphjbkeiagm?hl=en

Thank you Dear,

 

i think uBlock Origin protect you on chrome from Cryptojacking.

please disable uBlock Origin Extension and then test Cryptojacking protect.

 

I add chrome at Identity Protection > Application Protection and again test Cryptojacking. but agan show i am not protect.

Yes uBlock Origin was protecting Chrome!

 

With uBlock Origin off.

 

 

So uBlock Origin is now back on!
