I too keep getting this message popping up. No real response from any Avast staff as to what this is or what to do about it for Mac users. Why not? Why does JS-Miner-C find no postings on this forum, but plenty of them (on this forum) when I do a Google search. Ignorance is not bliss. Help us Avast!! Do not tell us to post in some other place in forum, tell us what to do about this!!
Screenshot of two error messages should be attached here!!

It is not true that we do not respond to topics about JS:Miner detections. On the contrary - we even published a blogpost about it! https://blog.avast.com/ladies-and-gentlemen-prepare-your-cpu-web-browser-mining-is-coming
If you have any additional questions, do not hesitate to ask them, as I have been ansering them in this thread as they come.

I receive my mail via Gmail. Any reasonable explanation would be helpful. Thanks
