Nobody quite knows how JavaScript code was changed and injected on CBS Showtime website with the aim of mining for crypto-curriencies. Somebody must know, but nobody is saying anything.
The code appeared at the weekend and was gone again by Monday.

Last weekend my GF mined cryptocurrency from my wallet while I was asleep. Likewise she was gone by Monday. I wonder if there's a connection?
