What kind of cryptojacking does Block Cryptojacking block? How does it work?

Currently, Block Cryptojacking uses host-based blocking methods (we frequently update our lists) to prevent malicious scripts and URLs from loading. In most cases, this is sufficient to prevent your computer from executing or downloading malicious scripts.

We’re currently working on integrating HTML content filtering into the application to enable blocking 1st-party cryptojacking attacks from otherwise trustworthy sources. Stay tuned for updates on this!
