Norton worked: Blocked website due to intrusion attack JSCoinminer Download 13
Tonight I surfed to the following website and my Norton Security alerted me thru a small popup in the bottom right corner that it had blocked the website (see spread out version below) due to "Web Attack: JSCoinminer Download 13." I had never been to that website before. Tonight I had gone there from a Bing search (which is problematic since the current Norton Security (184.108.40.206) does not display the Safe Web icons in Firefox.)

I didn't get any red Norton Safe Web alert for that website, but the Safe Web dropdown does not work (it's blank) with private windows in Firefox 54.0.7. [EDITED: Oh, I just discovered that blank Safe Web UI has been fixed in an update. I thought it would update automatically, but it obviously doesn't if set to "default." So I'll update that now.]
When I manually insert that URL for testing at the Norton Safe Web site, it tells me that the main domain is OK.
So I'm glad Norton aborted the attack; it says I don't have to do anything. This was the first time Norton caught anything on my computer, so it was a bit unnerving. I ran full system scans with Norton Security and Malwarebytes, and nothing was detected.
I also have Noscript, so I wonder if that would have stopped it, too. But does Norton Security work prior to Noscript? i..e, does Norton block a website before Noscript even has a chance at it?
Thanks for any info.
