I just spent three days trouble shooting a website that was showing different results to different users, and I was just beginning to wonder if it wasn’t some kind of plishing attach. (It turned out to be a scrambled plugin. I just unloaded and reloaded them which shouldn’t work, but did.) Then I got an article from Malawarebytes about cyrptojacking, did a search, and found that no major media outlets have so far picked up on the story. I did however find your article, which I thought was clear, concise — which is a BIG problem on Medium — and informative enough so that I won’t feel obligated to write my own article. Then I found out that for some reason my password isn’t working for Medium and then realized that I never have had a password for Medium, even though I am a member. It seems that I simply click on the articles that interest me from the emails I get from them.
