Firefox will block crypto mining malware in the next browser versions
This step is part of the initiative to combat the hidden tracking of browser users. The new update aimed at closing this vulnerability is expected to appear in a few months.
In one of its studies using the Ghostery browser extension, Firefox noted that 55.4% of the total time required to download the average statistical website is spent on downloading information and data to tracking systems.
The future versions of Firefox will prevent the implementation of the hidden mining on the user devices in the case of visiting certain sites if they contain similar scripts. Firefox will also block any kind of user tracking and will offer “an exact set of control tools.” Firefox wants to provide its users with more options in the area of data selections, they share and exchange with Internet sites.
