New IAB Category: Cryptomining and Cryptojacking

New IAB Category: Cryptomining and Cryptojacking

In order to rectify a long standing mismatch between our in-house Webshrinker taxonomy and the augmented IAB taxonomy in use, we are now adding a new category:

  • IAB25-WS4 - Cryptomining / Cryptojacking - Sites which use a victim’s resources for mining cryptocurrencies.

This is directly equivalent to the existing “cryptomining” category from the Webshrinker in-house taxonomy. Please note that this is not an official IAB taxonomy, and forms part of the extra set of categories added by Webshrinker.

Further details, along with descriptions of all categories, can be found in our technical documentation.
