Coin hive firewall issue


#1

Hi,

My company has put up some firewalls and they are catching activity from something called “Coin Hive” whenever I have c9 open. I believe it is used to utilize my IDE computing power to mine cryptocurrencies when I am not using it. I will not be able to use c9 at work if this is the case, is there any way to turn this off?

Hi!

We don’t use Coin Hive or make use of your workspace’s computational resources for our own benefit. It would appear that someone is injecting Coin Hive scripts in to your browser, perhaps from malware on your device or a man in the middle attack.
