    Cryptojacking Test Check if your browser is affected by cryptojacking!

    Browser test, nothing to download at all. https://cryptojackingtest.com/

    If you are Not subject to Cryptojacking please add what you used to BLOCK cryptojack mining! Thank you.

    Malwarebytes Pro is stopping Cryptojacking on my PC *Rockout :rockout:
    And just in case I also use No Coin on my FF browser which even with Malewarebytes shows that it was blocked.
