How to block Crypto Miner (javascript)

L3 Networker

This week I noticed a "CoinHive Javascript Detection" in the logs of our Palo Alto.

When reading on the subject I noticed that there are websites around that use Javascript to start mining Crypto coins on the users' computer.


Detailed description can be found here :


I noticed in the Palo Alto blog that : PANDB is able to block URLs hosting Coinhive JavaScript.


My question:

How does one actually block this?

When I visit for example and push the button "Start Mining" the CPU goes up to 100%.
