Lol.. This is a new thing that will catch website owners pants down.
My guess is if they have a designer to do their coding stuff, that guy is eating where he shouldn't.

This will be a new headache for big sites especially. I've just read that CBS Showtime also had the same script, probably installed by one of their many developers.
Media owners might need to learn some coding. Otherwise they'll be ripped off by developers.
Don't be surprised to hear CNN au Buzzfeed in the same boat soon.

Coinhive offers a JavaScript miner for the Monero Blockchain (Why Monero? ) that you can embed in your website. Your users run the miner directly in their Browser and mine XMR for you in turn for an ad-free experience, in-game currency or whatever incentives you can come up with.
