Cisco Umbrella is thrilled to announce that we’ve added a Cryptomining security category! You can now enable this setting for both existing and new policies.
The Cryptomining setting allows you to block identities from accessing known cryptomining pools where miners group together and share resources—processing power—to better gather and share cryptocurrencies, and from known web cryptomining source code repositories. By blocking cryptomining, Umbrella protects you from the recent emergence of cryptomining malware.
For more information on how to enable cryptomining for your policies, see our policy documentation.
