Behind-the-Scenes Cryptocurrency Mining Discovered on Showtime Sites


Showtime Networks apparently has mined the websites of online viewers using the same Coinhive technology that The Pirate Bay recently used in a test run on its site. A subsidiary of CBS, Showtime is a premium television network that offers professional boxing, feature films, original scripted television shows like Ray Donovan and other programming. Showtime is one of several major cable networks to offer direct streaming subscriptions to viewers who prefer to watch online instead of using a cable or satellite service.
