Torrent site warns users about software

Torrent site warns users about softwareTorrent website The Pirate Bay is doubling down on its plan to use visitors’ processing power to mine crypto.
In a disclaimer recently added to the bottom of its homepage, the website said that “by entering TPB you agree to [monero] being mined using your CPU.
Despite framing the test as limited in nature, many visitors cried foul as much of their computing power was harnessed for mining XMR.
Bleeping Computer reported last October that Pirate Bay had brought back the feature.
The torrent site’s new approach represents a kind of so-called “cryptojacking” that is voluntary in nature.
