Hidden Mining with YouTube Ads

Troy Marsh (a free Expert on cyber security) said that using the DoubleClick platform, the miners began to embed the code in the videos on Youtube at the time ads were shown. This news was first announced by the information platform Ars Technica.

The expert drew attention to the fact that advertising broadcasts contain code produced in the JavaScript language, which is why it is possible to run the Monero crypto currency through the Coinhive service.

There is no direct evidence for Marsh, but he suggested it was Yutoub, since users spend an enormous amount of their time on it. As we are aware, this is the main goal and indicator for implementing the mining software. We remember that the ratio of earnings is such, the more advertising is viewed, the more the crypto currency is being reduced , which means that the amount of earnings increases.

Most Internet users in recent months have noticed that the CPU usage while browsing the Youtube service is increased to eighty percent, which is exactly what the Gizmodo portal did.

In turn, on a public statement by an independent expert on the use of Youtube, Google (the owner of Youtube) responded that the problem had been resolved in the last few hours. Although the TrendMicro experts say the opposite.
