Hosts based blocking
For the blocking based on the HOSTS file use the below link:
You can simply copy and paste the contents of above file into your hosts file. The locations of your hosts file depends on your system:
Whichever OS you use, you will require escalated privileges to edit the file (either use
sudo for Linux/MacOS or administrative account on Windows). Or you can use command below for linux
sudo -- sh -c 'curl -sS https://raw.githubusercontent.com/hoshsadiq/adblock-nocoin-list/master/hosts.txt >> /etc/hosts'
You may use the hosts file with below applications to block these miners on whole networks. Simply add the link to the above hosts file in each system.
