The plug-in had been tampered with to add a program, Coinhive, which "mines" for Monero by running processor-intensive calculations on visitors' computers.
While currency miners are more of a nuisance than a threat, simply drawing on users' processing power, Helme said the hackers could have implanted more unsafe code if they had chosen to do so. Organizations that want Browsealoud to work on their sites must add its code to their source code, and the hackers took advantage of that relationship to co-opt the computing power of visitors to those sites. It hides in a website's code and steals the processing power of its visitors' devices to mine cryptocurrency.
Websites affected included the Student Loans Company, Barnsley Hospital and other worldwide companies and sites. The technology is used by many websites, including those belonging to the US Courts, the General Medical Council, and some local councils.
