    (I just got hit at an HD Wallpaper site but I don't know which one, using Palemoon browser) Defender caught it before it could do its dirty work!

    There are hundreds if not thousands or even millions of sites using coin miner scripts to get money and use your cpu to do it.

    Unfortunately the only protection is an AV and defender is better than many others at detecting these website scripts.

    Defender is what I use and performed as you describe, plus I do manual scans with Malwarebytes Antimalware (MBAM free) and SuperAntiSpyware (SAS free)
