How To Easily and Effectively Block The Coin Hive Web Miner

It seems that the craze running among website owners embedding the Coin Hive Web Miner for Monero (XMR) and not telling their visitors about it or letting them control the mining is growing. As a result a lot of people are noticing increased load and their computers starting to lag and getting unresponsive and having trouble locating the particular website that is causing the issue or just not that advanced to do it. The good news is that you can easily stop the miner from running without having to top using any of the websites you visit that might have embedded the code, you just need to block a specific JavaScript URL in your ad blocker software (if you are using one in your browser).

The URL in question you need to block is this one:

https://coinhive.com/lib/miner.min.js

Could you please make an article to show us how to add the miner to my own website ?
My goal here is to get rid of the all adds and use the miner to replace them with minimal CPU hit ( probably even less than the current animated adds )

Cheers

Website owner can easily overpass blocking this url with java scrip by simply putting java script file in their own website.

Then you can just block the whole domain and make sure that even that will not be a problem.

Web masters need to be more responsible and if they are abusing their power then you need to avoid their site. Simple as that.
