Last month the popular torrent website The Pirate Bay caused some uproar by adding a Javascript-based cryptocurrency miner to its site with no opt-out option, utilizing visitors’ CPU power to mine Monero coins in an attempt to gain an extra source of revenue.

Now D-Link has been caught doing the same, although there’s high chance that its website has been hacked.

D-Link’s official website for Middle East (www.dlinkmea.com) has been found secretly adding a JavaScript-based cryptocurrency miner, according to a blog post published by security firm Seekurity on Tuesday.
