Sounds like yet another Monero miner. What's the sudden craze
This is going to be a bit off topic for the WindScribe thread, so I apologize for that.
Since it seems everything is attempting to mine Monero using CPU, I looked into it a bit and downloaded a simple Monero CPU miner for Windows. I'm getting about 33 h/s per thread. Running 4 threads since I've got a quad core CPU gives me about 132h/s. According to this Monero Mining Calculator
, the mining reward is about 6.5 XMR per block, and it will take me about 7.09 years to successfully mine a block, which comes to about 0.91 XMR (~$85.20 at current prices) per year. But it will probably cost that much (or more) to pay for the electricity to run my CPU 24/7 mining.
While I suppose while it isn't profitable to CPU mine for yourself, if you had what is essentially a botnet of CPUs mining for you and you don't have to pay the electricity costs, I can see how it could make you a decent amount of change. Probably a lot more than ad banners.
