Almost 50% of all cryptojacking scripts (in-browser miners) are deployed on adult-themed sites, according to new numbers released this week by Qihoo 360's Netlab division.

Researchers gathered these numbers by using Netlab's DNSMon system, a tool that analyzes relations in DNS traffic between web domains.

DNSMon allowed researchers to analyze web traffic on the entire Internet level, and spot which sites loaded JavaScript code from domains known to offer in-browser mining services.
