Alexa is an online service that scores websites and ranks them based on their popularity, traffic earned, and various other factors.

In a shocking revelation made by Palo Alto Networks, some of these top sites that receive the highest amounts of internet traffic had ongoing malicious activity resulting from crypto miners and credit card stealing skimmers.

zoombangla doesn't seem affected by any coin-miners at this time either, not any more. The only thing noted in the uBO logger was a script blocked here on MalwareTips. :)


It did, however, later issue a pop up that was partially blocked by uBO. I X'd out via the tab, not the pop up. 😱
