Yandex, Popular Russian Search Engine, Launches Anti-Cryptojacking Markers

Back in March, Yandex improved the anti-cryptojacking protection in its same-name browser. Now Yandex introduces it in the popular search engine to protect all of its users.

From now on, websites that secretly engage users’ computers and smartphones in mining activity will be ranged at the bottom of the search results page. When users attempt to open those websites, they will be given a corresponding warning note.

Owners of websites where the scripts of cryptojacking are found will also be notified automatically.
