    Coin hive installed on mywordpress websites, by Newest

    Hi !

    I have several domains running WordPress. Recently I have noticed a performance deterioration on them. My websites remain down for several minutes every day. There is hardly any visitor on these (not more than a 100/day, since these are mainly personal websites hardly promoted.. ) My Website host keeps on telling me to ” optimize my website ” – which I don’t know how to, since, as my handle suggests, I am newest

    Running a website speed test via :
    https://tools.pingdom.com

    I notice that domain conhive.com and associated scripts such as https://coinhive.com/lib/coinhive.min.js are frequently being accessed/ run when I run a speedtest on these websites. The net tells me these are for mining some crypto currency via some plugins.

    I don’t remember installing any such plugin and am wondering how coinhive got in my sites and is it responsible for deterioration /outages I have been experiencing lately.

    Some of my wordpress sites that have this issue are :

    Any help/advice would be highly appreciated. Thanks !
