Anti-WebMiner

Anti-WebMiner protects your PC against web cryptocurrency miners (JS scripts like Coinhive executed in the browser) by modifying Windows hosts file.

Screenshot

Download!

VirusTotal AntiWebMiner.exe: 0/63

Compatibility

Windows XP/2003/Vista/Seven/8/8.1/10 32-bit and 64-bit

Why?

The coin mining in a browser using scripts like Coinhive is a real problem for everyone. These scripts may cause your browsers working slow or fully unresponsive, drain a battery of your notebook. Any webmaster may add only one line to a code of website to start monetizing by coin mining.

How to Protect?

Anti-WebMiner blocks scripts using a "blacklist" database of hosts like "Coinhive". Anti-WebMiner modifies a Windows hosts file for disabling connection attempts to "blacklisted" sites.

Benefits!

This protection works for all browers. You don't need to install a browser extension.

Batch Mode

Run AntiWebMiner.exe with parameter "/c" to auitomatically check & update blacklist in background (no GUI). AntiWebMiner.exe /c

Raw data

BlackList

Ready-to-use hosts file
