Speak to the handNot talkingShame on you

Why is there a Cryptocurrency miner setup on your site?
Your site also fails almost all security tests.

Are you aware of this? And if not do you plan to fix it?

Well I do not use Facebook to access this site. Should be very obvious on the front page. That's the shady bit.

Should be an opt in instead of an opt out.

And to use 100% of my 12 Core CPU is a bit greedy to boot.

Run your site through any one of the hundreds of website scanning security tools and see that the site rates at an F.

That's not a good grade by the way.

With all that out of my system I would like to say I have been using the site for sometime and had enjoyed it. I appreciate the option to opt out because it gives me a moment to think about this.

Thanks for filling me in, later days.

It uses 70% I believe...not 100%.

I just ran scans using scuri, quttera, upguard, and am currently running detectify. None of them found a single issue (so we will call that an A).

These were 4 of the hundreds of scanning tools you mention. Maybe some of your 96 are finding something different? Please feel free to let us know which tools you are using that provide a different answer...

And NOW I finally figured out why the site freezes and kicks me back to the home screen when I sign in on my Xbox instead of a regular computer. Opted out and the problem went away. Sorry CBR. . .I don't mind the idea of the currency miner, but I can't tweak the security setting on my Xbox to let it through.
