I wonder  how  all these  people who said  this was better  than  ads fell   now?   Within a little over a month  the sites dns was took  over by hackers  not  much difference  than getting hijacked via a infected ad .Lol  all these idiots who were willing  to turn there PCs into botnets too download warez  who had been blocking ads for years all the sudden got a heart and started approving of monetizing  for profit .  It's the early 2000s  all over again  when people use to install spyware  programs  to download warez . Wait  that's windows  and half  it's  programs now days . :lol: I blocked this crap since day one in uMatrix   :tease:

I never agreed with this idea of using people's computer resources to pay for the server costs.

 

I'm even more concerned about opening effected sites on mobile, as some of the sites I have used I have a suspicion of them making a use of it.

I think when it comes to Android it's a bit different!

Because as long as one unknown sources off and maybe a good anti malware it's enough.

If i remember correct the pirate bay were one of most famous torrent side who started using this method i while ago!

It's quite possible to run this script in an Android browser, using up it's battery and other resources. Not anything to do with the installation of apps I think.

Yes of cores you are right.

Silly me!:sneaky:

Btw

i was referring to adware and bad adds in latest comment.

 

This script is also effecting android browsers as you described above!

A friend recently have made a anti script for this and working great, now almost all popular adblockers including adgaurd , orginblock

can detect the script but still is a risky thing!

My apologies if I was rude there, if you felt so.

 

I see. Indeed you are correct there. AG now warns users when they open such site, asking them whether to allow such.
