Cryptocurrency mining malware has recently become a big problem in the cybersecurity world that famous internet browser Opera is now beginning to offer protection against it right out of the box.

The developers of the Opera Browser told that the next version of their software will be offering a built-in “anti-Bitcoin mining” feature. Simply called Noncoin, this new protect feature promised to block any cryptocurrency scripts that might be dangerous to your device’s computing power.

Opera Software team member Kornelia Mielczarczyk described:

“Bitcoins are really hot right now, but did you know that they might actually be making your computer hotter? Your CPU suddenly working at 100 percent capacity, the fan is going crazy for seemingly no reason and your battery quickly depleting might all be signs that someone is using your computer to mine for the cryptocurrency.”

She Included:

“This cryptocurrency mining can sometimes continue after you have first visited the site. But we, as the only major browser with an integrated ad blocker, have a built-in solution to keep miners from trespassing onto your machine.”

How to Protect your Computer on all Browsers?

It really does not matter which browser you are using. Protecting against the threats such as hackers and bots hijacking your device for mining cryptocurrency is a must. Besides commonsense solutions such as using the updated anti-virus and firewall software, there also particular options for guarding against browser miners.

The highest used Chrome extension and Firefox add-on are called No Coin are available for download here. There are so many options available on the browser’s respective app stores and you should search for the one you trust the most.
